Serpent of Isis: Your Journey Continues
Attack of the Pop-Up Character!
This game drove me absolutely nuts due to the fact that the main character from the storyline feels that it's necessary to pop up EVERY time you click on something or transition from one part of the game to the next. He comments on everything and blocks the lower third of your screen. It was like a sick jack in the box that just wouldn't quit. As far as the rest of the game goes, it was your run of the mill hidden object game. Mostly hidden object scenes with minimal puzzles in between. Graphics were very good and storyline was predictable, but solid. I can't recommend this game because there are other hidden object games out there that are much more dynamic, but it wouldn't be a bad buy for $2.99 or for someone who is looking for several hours worth of hidden object game play.

Challenging and fun!
Serpent of Isis and the sequel (..Your Jorney Continues) is by far one of the best hidden object games offered by BigFish. It combines different types of challenges (hidden objects, strategy, puzzles, etc) to keep you engaged. The graphics are wonderfully created and the storyline flows well and keeps you sufficiently hooked. Can't find anything at the moment, which compares with it. Great game!

Usual type of game, nothing special, but by chapter one already I was at nearly screaming point with that Robert popping up every second, telling me what to think and do. And I was doing the expert mode, without interactive help! Too irritated to go on, this is a definite no for me.

This game was available as the Catch of the Week, and as I'd never played it before I thought I'd read the reviews, then decide whether to download the trial or not. I wasn't expecting much, having read what the reviews had said, but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. At first I was annoyed with Robert constantly popping up, but once you get used to that, you get engrossed in the game and it becomes not such a nuisance after all. I found the HOS to be fairly easy, but not so simple as to be boring. This was actually a pleasant change to some of the games I have played recently where the HOS were practically impossible. The puzzles are fairly easy also, although the puzzle in the bookshelf had me stumped for a while, and even though I figured out the combination, I still couldn't get the key to turn, so had to skip - I'm still not quite sure how it worked! Just when I was getting into the game, the demo edition ended, so I have decided to purchase the game. It's not like I need more games, but I figure this one was a good game for a day when I didn't want to be overly challenged, but just wanted something to while away the time. I'd recommend it to people just starting out in HOG or for those who are after something that doesn't tax the brain too much. But, I warn you, Robert popping up all the time may annoy you, so download a trial version first!

One of the best visual HOG's out
The difference between this sequel and the 1st Serpent of Isis game is like night and day. The graphics on this game are some of the best I've seen on any HOG out currently. The transition screens are not too long, and the dialouge is not too boring as I've experienced in other games. I also like how you can click on the map to go to different places immediately without having to backtrack thru several different screens. Graphics are one of my top criteria when playing these types of games and this one does not disappoint at all. Definitely recommend!

Interesting, fun, and different
This game is the most fun! You follow Robert on a journey he inherited from his grandfather, Robert must finish grandfathers mission/expedition. Robert is helped along by his sister Sophie. Together they explore and open up a lovely display of HO's and puzzles. I enjoyed "traveling" and backtracking throughout the game. Loved Robert and Sophie.Hidden object scenes were fantastic and plentiful. Puzzles were very well done and tricky. Moving throughout the game was easy enough, and beautifully done graphics. Characters were super, figuring out what to do next, keeps us guessing. For a really fun time, choose this game. NOTE: people who wear glasses some items are tiny. Nice long play time. Hints were ok, not the best. Map very handy. Secret objects, some easy to locate, others not so much, but using time to find them works out well, I was able to complete all but one secret object card. I recommend you go find the Serpent of Isis for yourself. I am sure you won't be disappointed. This game is not dark, morbid or creepy! Music is nice while you play!!!

A GOOD CHALLENGE
Just finished and found it a challenge...great HOS.
Mini-game puzzles could have had more instructions on how to complete - I had to use the walk thru hints a couple of times to work out what was required.
I loved that each chapter ended and it was a convenient place to leave the game and not have to come back and try to pick the story line up again.
Great all around game and for me a good balance of story and HOS - I really don't like too many HOS.

Not up to BF standards
The game moves slowly, too much inane dialogue and virtually no challenge to anyone above a third-grade level. Add to that errors, such as wrong items listed on search list, and puzzles that are no puzzle at all and, in my opinion, the game is a loser.

I had a great time with this game! I loved all the hidden object scenes and the puzzles were fun. I recommend this game to those who enjoy a lot of hidden object searching.
