This is a nice straightforward HOG which would probably appeal more to kids, (or big kids!). The graphics are simple, but very nice to look at and the HOs are easy enough to find, without being ridiculously obvious. Although it probably might be a bit difficult for some kids, I do think that 10-12 year olds could manage it on easy mode. I do agree that for adults, you need to play it at expert mode or you'll get a bit bored. I played it through on the easy level first, and actually found it very pleasant at that level, if you are in a mood where you don't want to be challenged too much. I did like the mini games, although a lot of them were old standards, but nicely done and they did fit in with the storyline. I also liked the music for the most part, although here and there it was a bit repetitive and I turned it down. It was very in keeping with the period though. It was a really sweet storyline and I found myself going 'Ahhhh', a few times, although the hero is a bit of a drip, who looks as if he needs a hair cut. One small gripe is that the skip button did seem to take a long while to charge and it might have been nice if there had been a progress bar, so that you could see how long you had to go for it to become active. Really though, a very enjoyable game for lazy days.
