Serpent of Isis: Your Journey Continues
Fun to play..wanted to give a 5 but....
This game reminded me of the old type mystery games I played quite a few years ago. I enjoyed playing it as much as those old ones. I like the scenes and the music...I didn't even mind the character's faces popping up and "talking"...there were words written for all they had to "say"...Their face reactions to some of the things which happened were quite funny. I like being able to find certain items for each chapter...and HERE is one part of this game I didn't like...If you don't find all the extra items in each chapter, and it gives you a hint for each one found, you can't go back into those places and try to find the ones you missed. Once you finish a chapter, you can't go back. I liked the HO scenes and there were, I'm sure too many of those for some people's liking , but for me, I really enjoy those. Another thing was some of the games were, for me, confusing and I ended up skipping some of them when I tried to use hints as to what to do...they weren't very helpful...some of those games I won by pure "accident"! But, I still give this game a 4 because of the fun factor for me. There are 7 chapters and it ended up taking me a little over 7 hours, but I was penalized 20 minutes as it records your time for each of the games I skipped. Overall, I really liked this game and will be playing it again someday.

A Journey I'd Just as Soon Avoid
On the plus side, if you like HOS, there are a lot. For me, there were just too many. It got annoying as they became like roadblocks. The animation of the cut scenes was very nice with wonderful graphics. The animation of the dialogue was horrible with very large blinky-eyed characters pushing into the screen to tell you the story ? which you had to read. There were no voiceovers. Very annoying. The puzzles were attractive and clever, but all quite easy. I thought the game might be aimed at a young audience. With so many games to choose from, I'd recommend you look at something else unless you just love Hidden Object scenes.
