I love how they made a game from a movie and had the movie incorporated within however the game itself needs a lot of work. It became tedious and the graphics weren't great it's like they took more time putting the movie in then the game.

I found it to be different and played it and got stuck on level 7 then I got to a level that I still can't get past. I've sat and tried for hours and it just doesn't make it fun. It doesn't give you a choice to skip and go on like most games will. I wouldn't suggest it to anyone..

At first,I thought, boy what a cool idea to include a movie in the game. After sitting though the 3rd movie clip, I just lost patience with the game in general. The mini games were fairly easy and the hidden objects were fairly easy to find, but a bit difficult to pick-up. I have decided that I really don't want to have to watch a long movie clip when I am playing a game. It makes me lose interest in the game rather quickly.

I applaud the developers for trying something unique. You watch a little clip of a movie (aprox 5 mins) and then select 3 items that were not in the movie from a list of things supplied. You'll get an extra hint but if you're like me and not into watching a movie while playing a game, then the skip option comes up within the 1st minute. Then you move into the game area with some chapters to select from, each with a few H.O. screens or puzzles (find 10 items, name the differences etc). The H.O. screens are light and easy to see but some of the items seem to have a narrow click-on area so I found myself getting frustrated (eg: an apple - you had to click on the stem, clicking on the apple didn't do anything). The music is okay but becomes annoying and I just found the game boring. However, this would be an excellent game for someone just getting into H.O. games for for someone younger. I didn't finish but that was just my personal choice.

I didn't find anything entertaining with this game. I dumped it after Chapter 2 & very annoyed it took up a new HO game slot. It's been awhile since a 5 star game in this genre has been offered in my opinion. I usually give a game more of a chance but this game was just to monotonous to waste time on. Thankfully, I have fun pass!

Finding the hidden object portions were fun, but having to watch a full movie to gain hints was a bit annoying. I'm on this site to play a game, not watch a movie.

This game is just boring. In my opinion, the hidden object parts show no imagination or flare. Definitely boring.

Found this game frustrating as if you exited and then returned another time the chapter re-started. Gave up on Chapter 5 when you had to make a ball bounce 50 times by clicking the mouse and there was no way to skip.

The film element of this game, where you watched film clips and then identified items you did not see in the clip, were interesting and different. But the hidden object scenes, which took up most of the game play, were poorly drawn with terrible graphics. It's hard enough to see items clear across a room, yard or street if the graphics are crisp. But these graphics were anything but. You could go blind trying to find things in this one. For instance, I thought one item was a pink electrical wire and it turned out to be a garden hose. The other problem was that after spotting an item it was often difficult to find the 'sweet spot' that would allow it to be picked up, I clicked all over an apple and finally had to use the hint button to get it. My eyes were hurting after a half hour. I lasted through three chapters. That was it for me.

This game was so unusual with all of the videos put in there to watch. I was very surprised to see how this worked and then play the HO game. I thought this was a fun game.
