I thought this was just going to be a H/O-only game (w/ some mini-games), but it surprised me. I chose the "adventure play" (or whatever) option & it was actually good - in story, searches, challenge, etc. My only major complaint about it was how much you have to go back and forth (using the map) to each place. I realize that this is fairly typical in H/O games, but when you don't know what needs to be accomplished next and therefore have to just go to random places to see if you missed anything (or whatever), it gets a little tedious. Plus the hints aren't very helpful - telling you WHERE a task needs to be completed even though you already know that & you're just looking for a hint HOW to accomplish that task. So it was good that they have the strategy guide right there just in case. But overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the game and had fun playing it. Nothing too heavy, serious or dark - just relaxing.

Thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. Going to immediately purchase the next release from Jolly Bear.

This H/O game was very different than the other "Adventure in (name a city)" games. This is a true H/O game with difficult mini-games and a lot to look for. As another reviewer pointed out, you get stuck (too often) not knowing what to do and have to go back through all the places you've been to try to find a place where there's something that will help you move forward. I think the creators knew that this was too tiresome for the user, so they put their "Walkthrough" right on the screen of each scene. I have been forced to use it where I would not ever use it in other H/O games as an advanced user. Still the game is much, much more intriguing and engaging than the normal "Adventure" games. I recommend it with a caveat to make moving forward a little more intuitive. Challenging, yes. I'm enjoying that.

I love all the Big City Adventures Games and the London Story was a great addition to my owned games. I found it to be a nice way to relax after a stressful day and my grandchildren love to play the game with me. I look forward to seeing where Big City Adventure takes me next.
