Everything about it is what I have come to expect from Gamehouse games. The graphics, music, tasks, puzzles and even the storyline, which I skip on most games, was very enjoyable. The puzzles are interesting and fashioned to where, if you have experience with them, you can complete them within the time it takes waiting on the Skip Button to fill, but they are not boring and actually go with the story. The only reason for the 4.5 stars is that it could have been longer. Thanks for the great deal Gamehouse!
I thought this game was quite good, made you actually think on the things you had to accomplish . I definitely recommend it !!!

I thought this game was interesting - I enjoyed playing it and figuring out how it all ended. The HO scenes were great - I wish there were more of them. The graphics were very good - very clear. The puzzles were ok - thankfully they weren't that frustrating or difficult. The hint refilled very slowly but was very helpful - it gave you detailed instructions on what to do next if you needed it. Overall, thought it was a very enjoyable game to play!
Game was played in the hard or challenge mode. Great story line and graphics and definitely more challenging than the average HOG because you don't problem solve a scene and then move on. The game is a bit more complex than that - and that does make it a 'Thinky' game - however, you do collect a good amount of inventory which when your mind tells you logically you could use the scissors the game insists you don't yet have what you need so you begin to try to use everything in your inventory - hence the 'Clicky' rating, and this happens several times in the game. Someone already mentioned the bee, which is kind of a spoiler, cause that one had me stumped for a good while and I only discovered what it was for after trying to use everything in my inventory to solve the problem. There's no 'jump to location' on the map - but if you need a hint, the hint offers to take you to where you need to go. Mini games were fairly easy and enjoyable. I did buy this game,it is a good value and I would recommend it if you like a good challenge in problem solving. Do play the trial game first, if you like it and get hooked you will like the rest of the game.
This is quite a good game from several standpoints. The story line is plausible, the graphics are excellent, the music is good, and the mini-games are fairly unique. The voiceover left a bit to be desired, but it wasn't awful. This game is quite involved, with a lot of stuff in your inventory. If you can rely on your memory as to where to use an item, your memory is better than mine. Unfortunately, the map is not interactive. It neither allows you to jump to a particular location nor does it tell you where actions still need to be accomplished, which kept me from giving this otherwise excellent game 5 stars. There were many locations and many actions in each spot. The hint button was very specific about the next action, but its most useful feature was allowing you to jump to the necessary location. I often found myself using the hint button just so I wouldn't have to backtrack, even though I knew what to do next. This is just as much an adventure game as it is a HOG and very enjoyable. It will provide several hours of solid entertainment.
To be truthful, when I downloaded this game I was unsure about it. However, I totally loved it and was quite disappointed when it finished. Yes, the ending is a little hokey but it is still a very engrossing game. It is also a lot different from some of the games I've played in that when you find some of the items you find are not immediately needed, and as said before who would have thought of using a bee to find fresh air, or throwing a tile piece at a fan to release something?! The graphics were a little blurry when changing on occasion but I think that was intended. I highly recommend it.
Story original, great graphics, sound and voice. Hidden object scenes clear, several objects obtained for game play in each one. Good mini games, original and not too complicated. Three different play levels available which makes for replay possibilities. Map and hint system are helpful as a few solution sequences are a little off the wall. Overall a nice gaming experience.

Played with Fun Pass. It was a good way to pass part of a day. None of it was very hard, the hidden object games were easy as were the mini-games. Did not need any hints.

Just finished Greed and a little undecided how I feel. The game contains a massive number of inventory items that need to be maintained and gained through various puzzles which are quite decent. The story itself is quite engaging but somewhat poor voice acting, spelling mistakes in-game, and a simplistic ending kind of put a dampener on the experience. The game just needed a bit of a polish to make it great. Loved the menus, the art and detail within the diary and the publisher is on a good thing. I hope the next game is even better but this is a very good start!
I really liked this game. I was sad to see the end. It is addictive and fun. I would recommend this game.

The game has an interesting storyline and clear graphics. The mini-games are repetitive but you can skip them. The HOs are easy. The Hint button refills very slowly. There is a map but it is just a map – not interactive. However, the Hint button will tell you what you need to do next and give you the option to be transported there. Collecting all the radioactive objects and the Doctor’s awards was meaningless – just something more to do.
This game had way too many inventory items at one time; I kept scrolling through them trying to keep track. Some of their uses were very eccentric and I needed hints for them. Otherwise, it is a well constructed game with good puzzles that are not too hard to solve. The map was useless, I don't know why a maker includes one unless it is interactive, which this is not. The story holds together. The ending is a little lame in that it is short and anticlimactic. However it is a good value as a FunPass and I enjoyed my time with it.
This one will make you think about things. There are plenty of inventory items to select from to find the solutions but who would think to use a bee to find fresh air? That was my only hint needed. I wish there was more full hidden scenes with a dozen of things to find, but the story line has plenty of other things to find to more the story along. Good job on graphics and voice overs.

I enjoyed this game. It was long enough to keep me busy, but not daunting. It was sometimes hard to remember where an item was used, but the hints were helpful enough that I didn't need a walkthrough. The mini-games were good, although sometimes challenging, but there is an option to skip. The hint system gave details of what to do next with the option to jump to that location...that was handy! The journal opens to show several tabs...evidence, tasks, diary, map and a summary page. The map wasn't very helpful and is not interactive. Overall, I enjoyed this game. I usually play with no sound and cannot rate the music or dialogue. I also do not usually replay games, at least until a good bit of time has passed, so I won't rate the replay value.
