Umm... my headliner says it all. I won't go in details but the thing is.. the game was okay to begin with. The graphics were nice but the people in the game wwas kind of creepy to look at. Why blonde people??? Although the little creepy, weird girl's hair was black. That's not the point though! The point is that the game was okay. The mini-games require patience, and really good thinking on your part. There were two games I had to use walkthrough to figure out how to play a game. The others were easy to figure out. Some hints are used to find really small objects. I think this game is good for beginner HOG players.
This one is a thoroughly good value HOG, and one better than its forerunner. It has all the elements you need of a HOG but demands that you go back and forth between scenes to collect items you need, and is interspersed with puzzles which are sufficiently challenging without being utterly daunting. The graphics are so clear that the hidden objects - or parts of objects - do stand out rather too obviously perhaps but better that than sometimes when it really is quite impossible to discover objects because the artwork is just too scribbly. It's certainly fairer for the kids and I can well-imagine them enjoying this one immensely.
The storyline was cool, because you have to go from one year to another completly different one and do a lot of thinking, the puzzles were kind of hard and some I had to skip. You interac a lot with the characters.

It is an excellent game although there are areas that when you get there you need to spend a bit of time trying to figure out what you are supposed to do or find. I got to one place and that is where I stopped as I cannot figure out how to solve the problem there. I am going to try and replay it from the beginning as there may have been something that I missed earlier on that is needed at my current location in the game.

I've found it hard to put my mouse down and leave my computer since I started the game. With a great deal of effort, I managed to come back into real life. The story line is entrancing, to say the least, and keeps you wanting to go on, just one more section.

just like the first one, I loved this, even more! I have over 200 games from easy to hard, and this is middle of the road, but FUN! When I don't feel like squinting and bending my brain but want something to get involved with for awhile, this one works for me!

after the last games this is definately a winner. I haven`t been happy with a game for a long time.

This to me was a sleeper. It sure surprised me. I had played the first game and had liked that one. Sometimes the second game is not as good. Not this game, it was just as good a play as the first one. I throughly enjoyed playing and sometimes didn't want to stop until 1A in the morning. I got very involved with the game.

I found this game to be fun. While it was relatively easy, I did have to use the hint button a few times. all in all a pretty good game.

For the first few minutes of this game I had high hopes for it, and thought I was really going to enjoy it, but after the first few scenes my enthusiasm petered out somewhat, although not entirely. I found that the game alternated between having puzzles that were too easy and too hard; some of the connections between the clues and the puzzles were so obscure as to be really rather ludicrous and I found that it all just seemed rather too disjointed and haphazard to be a first class HOG/puzzle game. It needed tightening up all round. Having said that, it's still a very playable game, and I'm sure a lot of people will like it, it just didn't quite do it for me. On the plus side, most of the graphics were very good, and I did like the sign posts with the footsteps on to move between scenes. I also thought that the mini puzzles were fresh and I particularly liked the log cutting one. Another positive was that it was one of those games where you can wander around aimlessly for a bit if you really are stuck and you can almost always work out what you've got to do eventually, by stumbling over clues accidentally. I did find the characters in the cut scenes a bit cringeworthy, although the shaman who appeared to have more width than height was quite amusing. The storyline was original and tried to do something a bit different, so the game is certainly worth a play, but it just didn't do it for me overall.
I've been waiting for this followup to Treasure Masters (which I've played several times and enjoyed each time). It's good, but not nearly as involved and difficult as I expected. I would have liked to have seen a more complicated game this time.

I just happened on the first one and really liked it, so when I saw this game I played it right away. I really like the putting things together and figuring where to go and what to do next. It was just as entertaining as the first.

I played the hour trial and while it was somewhat fun it was definitely too easy. The pieces that you need to find to make a complete object you then use to complete a task are very easily identifiable and found. While I personally wouldn't purchase the game, one plus I noticed while reading the game description - there are 56 locations and 50 mini games. They were easy too but some are unlike you'll find in other games. A good way to pass time if you have nothing else to do, as long as you're not expecting a challenge.
This game has a lot going for it. My main problem is the wooden characters with no animation to them. So I skip their dialog after the first playing. I couldn't complete the first runthrough without checking another persons walk through. There is a wonderful mix of doable puzzles and things I have to skip. This is definitely thinky but I enjoy that. The next game in the series takes care of all these problems. Enjoy playing!
I like this game; However, the ending obviously was written to set up the next game in the series, but it ended a little abruptly for me. The story flowed generally well, however I skipped the majority of the dialog due to the slowness of it. The game offers a number of challanges that I think will keep you involved. The graphics are fair, the objects can be found with out relying on the hint function, with a little effort on your part. I recommend this game for all levels of gamers, and as said elsewhere, this is a good game to play with younger gamers. Try it, I think you will like it.
Mystery Island is a good name for this game as I kept trying to figure out where and who these people were. First off, there's a white Barbie with a Madonna pony tail and a nerdy, Scandinavian version of Ken. Then we meet this very buff, black Shaman and a Native American from perhaps the Arctic Circle. There are tropical beaches, mountains, Victorian era mansions, European architecture, a lot of techno trash (looks like the summit of Everest) with a few grass shacks and a bit of South Sea's interior design for good measure and what we're left with is confusion. There is time travel involved here but, I still don't get it. The graphics lean towards uber realism - I keep waiting for beads of perspiration to form on Ken's forhead - maybe a bit of acne on Barbie! Ignoring the odd scenario and characters, this is a good game. Lot's of finding parts of things and then using them to move forward. There is switching back and forth between scenes and puzzle solving. I thought the wood splitting game was new and rather interesting. I' purchasing this game for two reasons: 1. I'm hooked on the game and 2. I'm hoping the whacky stuff makes sense in the end.
As in the other Treasures of Mystery Island game, you need to assemble your objects from the piese scattered in each scene then place them in other scenes in order to complete a level. It was nice that the designers added the names of the objects this time around but they eliminated the number of pieces you need to find for each object which would have been nice. I don't know if I wasn't in the right frame of mind but I found a lot of the puzzles to be more difficult this time and used the Skip button more than I liked. Some of the story line didn't make sense to me so I ended up ignoring most of that and concentrated on finishing each level (or year since gameplay is spread across 2 different years). Give it a whirl - it's definitely not a bad game.
