The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Ghost Ship
Much better than expected.
I thought this would be another decent hidden object game--nice graphics and gameplay but nothing very original. Wrong.
This is a fairly long game, and it does have nice graphics, sound, and gameplay, but it also had a surprisingly good story that really carried me along. There are no voiceovers, but the dialog is easy to read, adding enough detail without being too lengthy.
It is a fragmented object game, so you do spend a fair amount of time assembling things and figuring out where and how to use them. You also have to run around a bit, from scene to scene. I mention this as some people seem to dislike these features. I love adventure games, and enjoy having to figure everything out without too much hand-holding, so this was a win for me.
There is a map showing which locations still need something to be done, and there are good hints if you need a little help. A journal records most of what you find or read, so you don't need to make copious notes.
There are morphing objects to be collected, which I think is fun. I wish they would give you a little treat for collecting them all (like a wallpaper or song), or at least a sort of trophy room where you could look at all of them.
Overall, a really nice, very entertaining game that is, in my humble opinion, a good step above average.

What a rush at the end!
Loved this game..even though I'm not a big fan of fractured objects this one kept me going. No voice over but storyline was great and graphics were beautiful..but the best part was the climax ending..wow had me at the edge of my seat! Very well done Alaware!! =)

Fantastic gem of a game
I was sceptic at first when I started playing but it did not take long to totally get hooked. I could not stop playing but eventually had to. It is a very long game, hard to find.
Morphing objects included. The items to find, instead of your regular HOS are frags and sometimes hard to make out. You have to help individual ghosts, and put them back on the ship, by putting wooden figurines of them in their own ship cabins.
This is a very captivating game, hard to explain, you have to try it yourself. I did not want it to end. I don't know hwy I did not try this game before, and thanks to one of my favorite developers, they ran a special and I saw this game.
Great graphics, gorgeous scenes with lots to do, minigames somewhat easy, but it all makes sense.
Try it, it is now one of my favorite games ever, and I own many.

Struggling with FROG objects and sequencing
The graphics are gorgeous, but the gameplay is as fragmented as the hidden objects, and they are a real eye strain - objects not to scale, colors don't match, obscured by the background scene. Just not fair to hide tiny pieces with that level of difficulty. Storyline is engaging but gameplay makes you jump all over with no real logic to lead you; and after playing most of the way thru I'm just tired of fighting it. This isn't a challenge-it's a battle, and I'm losing it. Would not buy another in this series.

Did not like the format
Unlike most other hidden object games, this one shows you a fishing rod and then within the scene you have to find all the pieces that makes it up before you can use it. I didn't like it. Seemed to drag.

Very Great Game To Play
This game is very good to play. I liked it a lot. The game even played for a long time. I really enjoyed playing this one & I think you should buy it too. It is very easy to play & the sceens are great too. I hope they will make a part two of this game. Please try this game out you will enjoy it as much as I did.

Complex and interesting game
This has to be the most complex and involved game I've ever played. SOOOO many locations and things to do. The help/hint button was annoyingly slow and many of the items were impossible to find without a hint. Otherwise this game is great fun and challenging.
