Too short and simple for experienced HO players. Corny family vacation. A definite reco for the younger set. For us older folks, no go.

This game is a cartoon family that goes to California and cleans up messes as they make their journey. It's nearly all easy hidden object with some extremely easy mini games thrown in. On most boards, there are items hidden inside something, and those items are color coded on the list. The hint button ( a van) recharges fast enough and honks at you when it's recharged. The game is good for kids although I find it odd that items such as pipes and flasks would be in a children's game. It can be good for adults as well. If just want to find things, which I like to do sometimes, it's worth looking at. I don't think it will keep my attention to the end.

I just could not get into this game. I seldomly quit a game before the end but, this game just did not present any challenge and I became boored after about 30 minutes. It is a positive wholesome game ( hard to find lately) that I can recommend to anyone that has tired of all the darker games available. Have fun!

This game is good for the wholr family, but the kids loved it, from the colors, art, parents and trip. Good from for them all.

Cute game for kids. Very easy. Family is going to California for vacation so you get to go along. Objects are easy to find. As you progress, you take pictures of the family. This is a great game for kids, not so much for the HOG addicts like me who enjoy exploring lots of locations with objects more difficult to find. Graphics are "cartoonie" which is appropriate for this game. If you're wanting a game for the kids, this is it.

This game was colorful and bright - not shadowy like a lot of hidden object games. But it definitely wasn't worth the funticket I used to buy it because I got through the whole game in just a couple of hours. It would probably be a good one for kids to play.

very typical old school HOG. find items to move forward in the game-to different locations. the graphics are clear, but cartoony. the items are very easy to find. if u'v never played a HOG, or have kids they'd love this game i think. it is good to learn basic HOG skills, and would give kids a feeling of accomplishment.

This hidden object game plays fair--items are findable, not hidden in darkness, underneath jumbled piles, or invisible against backgrounds of the exact color. I enjoyed it (aside from a strange desire to smack the kid with the video game.)

If you're a hardcore HOer this game is not for you but your children or grandchildren will enjoy it. The graphics are cartoonish in nature (not a bad thing) and the HO scenes are bright and uncluttered. The mini games are geared toward children and shouldn't be too hard for them to solve. (I thought they were extremely easy but I was looking at it from an adult's point of view.) It was difficult for me to decide how many stars to give this one. For a seasoned gamer, they would probably give it 2 stars for not being much of a challenge but for a parent looking for some good entertainment for their children they'd probably give this one 5 stars. I took the middle road and gave it 3 stars. There are windows with dialogue in every scene but you can click through them rapidly. Hints are unlimited and take about a minute to recharge. Along the way you can take pictures of your vacation which are stored in a photo album. I definitely recommend this game to parents looking to entertain their children with a nice, non-violent way to pass some time.

Idea was good, but the game was way too short, standard HO scenes and mini-games, nothing new. Glad I was a fun-pass subscriber. Completed in around 3 hours, was ok but not worth purchasing (maybe ok for a child).

This is the perfect game for a rainy day afternoon when you don't want to have to think very hard about anything but want to play a HOG. Everything is pretty easy to find, I do like the location they go to but the conversation was a bit much. I found the kids to be very spoiled and um hello? Could we update this please? People are no longer allowed to go into the cockpits of planes OR to the galley to get food. I rolled my eyes on this part. Another thing to think of in the future is to let us interact more with the characters. Especially like in the scene with the mom doing the game show. Would've been more fun that way I think. All in all an easy and fun game--super safe for kids which is who I would gear/recommend this game to. I wouldn't purchase this game but I played it with my funpass.

I like a change from the dark games so I am enjoying this one. The graphics are good, music ok, storylike is about a family going on a trip. The mini games in my opinion are just ok. I really have not had to use any hints but they are there if you need them. I also like the way you have to find several parts of an object. It seems like a decent length game so I am going to purchase this one. This game would be great for kids too
