I suppose this game could be ok, but I can not play a game where the character states that "she" does not believe in God, I find it offensive. It is a stupid game and God should not be brought into it.

A gorgeous-looking game with a story that's definitely a cut above most: plausible, mature, TV show quality, great voice-acting. More an adventure game in traditional style, except it offers only a few logic-driven or inventory puzzles. Instead, most puzzles are search & find ho's / 10 of 'x' or spot the differences. Puzzles are relevant to story & skippable. Some are quite tricky, e.g., a put-the-stairs-back-together one. Screen resolution options are fantastic; you can get top displays here! No 3-D character animation, though. Game's main weakness is that objects are often tiny, so while it's a fun challenge finding 1/2 to 3/4 of them, the last pieces can be a headache, especially as hints recharge slowly & no way to collect more. As an adventure-game lover I enjoyed its cinematic & engaging story but needed to refer to walkthrough a few times due to tiny items. Definitely well worth the $ but hoping future games in series will have more of traditional-style adventure puzzles.
When I first played this game, I thought it was awesome right off the bat. I was starting to get into my groove! It wasn't until I realized this HOG is not exactly great for people who may have hard time finding objects that has same color or same brightness. I had to really use the hint button quite a several times to find things that "weren't there" - especially the photo game. It's great for a really experienced HOG player but not for beginners. You really have to think hard, and rely on the dialogues to lead you to the next step. The dialogue was interesting, and very interactive which made it more fun to play! I would suggest this game to an experienced player.
Overall concept is good. Play value is poor. Difficult HO scenes. Too small, Too intricate to find items. Kind of corny interactions, could flow easier. Thanks Glad I could help.

This HOG is not what I expected. The objects are so tiny that there should be a magnifying glass for you to find some of them. trying to find floppy discs that are across the room in the police station was an absolute eye strain! The story line left a bit to be desired. It seemed disjointed at times. All in all, not a game I would recommend or even attempt to play again. Don't waste your time or strain your eyes.

I don't know what's worse, the items that you can not find or the dumb things they say to each other.

I believe gamers like to be challenged but this game stepped way over the line. It has some serious drawbacks that get in the way of being able to truly enjoy this game. First: Get rid of that annoying pop up screen with Jade telling you to concentrate after too many wrong clicks. Gamers know when they've missed an object! Second: This game is almost impossible to finish without using copious amounts of hints (which take about a minute to recharge). I don't mind having to find tiny objects but these bordered on insanely and obscenely tiny. Making them so very small only adds frustration to the game and adds absolutely nothing to the game playing experience (in my humble opinion). Third: Making the HOs tiny and indistinct was one thing but hiding them in scenes that are fuzzy at best and murky also adds a level of frustration that would make most gamers not only quit the game before they've finished but diminishes greatly the chance of them ever buying this game. On the positive side, I found the story compelling which is probably the only reason I ever finished it. I liked the characters and am looking forward (again, with reservations) to the other chapters of this adventure. This one could have been a real contender and I'm hoping the developers take all the suggestions I've seen posted by other reviewers to heart before they release the next one. To those of you who haven't tried this one yet, be prepared for a lot of eyestrain and patience as you use the hint button too many times to get through to the end. I would not waste any money on this one and have no intention of trying to go through it a second time.
I could really like this game, only there is far too much talking, and very little game play. Too bad

After my hour's free trial I chose not to buy, mainly because one of the strengths of the game was also its main weakness. I grew so frustrated having to use hints too many times as objects were too tiny and obscure. That said, I applaud the fact that the majority of objects were at least relevant to the game which does make a nice change indeed. I just felt the game didn't give the searcher a fair enough chance, as I really don't like 'cheating'.
The hidden objects in this game are mostly so tiny you need a magnifying glass to find them. figuring out the culprits was not challenging. I think they need to work on this one. It's a good thing it was free!

Okay, they tried. The concept is good but the graphics are horrible! It's not that the images are poorly executed, it's that they are so darned blurry and finding things in this blurry, cluttered place is not much fun. That's why I rated this game challenging: without the hint button I would have been stuck for hours. I liked the idea of figuring out where the suspect went, where the character must go next, etc. but with the blurry graphics it was tough to tell a door from a crate. I almost fell asleep playing this game, literally. I think it is because the game feels slow and sluggish. It's also dark. The characters are okay EXCEPT for the BOSS. What an annoying character and voice! Also, aren't these people supposed to be in Italy? Why does the police captain sound like he's from Jersey? I think the developers should take this game home, fix a few dozen things and try again. It might work then - it doesn't now!
This could have and should have been a great game. They lost major points with hidden objects that were miniscule in size and blurry to boot (luggage, headstones as examples) The lack of direction and the depressing music, made me almost give up on the game. No hints for puzzles so you have to skip them if you aren't intuitive. I did enjoy the interactive script, and story line. However, such horrible graphics (mine shaft, cemetery) caused frustration to say the least.
This game was torture to play. Items were Way to small and the "find the differences" were terrible as well. I honestly don't recommend this for HOG lovers, unless you enjoy having sore eyes and a slight headache.

CONS: The game was very short. While it would be difficult to finish under one hour, it didn't last more than three. PROS: This is the first game I can remember where ALL the objects were loyal to the perspective at which they were placed (closer/larger vs. farther/smaller). The story was also involved and serves as a good first episode in what I hope is a decently long series. This one will give most serious Hidden Object fans a fair challenge.
I also agree this was a very interactive game that really made you do a lot of thinking. I have a magnifying glass that I use for the very small hidden objects it helped. I thought the dialog helped in finding some of the clues and hidden objects. Was a great game I also enjoyed the little games with in the game. I did feel like the way the game was set up you were part of the investigation. I would have given it 5 stars but I always feel that there is room for improvement. Would have given it 4.5 stars if I could have.
You play several levels and you get to where you have a key and you open a door with it well. you click and click nothing happens the hint won't even work even though its supposed to work. I even Googled this game and did exactly what the walk through said on this step, and nothing happened. So after an hour of frustration I give up all hope. Its really dumb too the way they have this smart aleck girl that says "really should think more" when you make wrong clicks. When your already very frustrated that they made the game impossible as it is. Its like they want to insult you like oh your stupid you can't think how to complete this impossible level. I would've given this game just one star had it not been for the fact that I was able to do some of the levels and got a little entertainment out of it. Believe it or not there's games even worse than this that you either just get too bored and/or are unable to even complete the first level. Some games are so crumby I delete them after just 5 minutes.
Did not care for this game. The challenge is largely due to the fuzzy graphics

Although the graphic were great the hidden objects were WAY too difficult to find. When I play a game I prefer to enjoy it and when things are too hard for my eyes to see I don't enjoy it at all. I wouldn't recommend this game.

I spent more time reading or listening to dialogue than actually playing the game. Puzzles intricate but a bit too challenging with no hints. What's with the "?" all the time? Graphics fairly good but boring and repetitive. This game plays more like reading a book with an occassional stopover to play a puzzle book.
