1912: Titanic Mystery
Too easy, too much HOS
Based on the demo. The storyline is good, and the characters are interesting, what little you see of them. Graphics are colorful and easy to see, for the most part, although each scene has some translucent objects. Mini-games are super easy. But there are too many HOS, especially when you consider the HOS contain quite a few objects that have nothing at all to do with the story, and seem out of place. If you like this kind of old-fashioned hidden-object game, then it is perfect for you. I like more adventure and more challenge.

What a waste
The puzzles were way too easy, so were the HOGs. The history info was good but the snarky remarks made by the crew were in poor taste, the sinking was a disaster, and even though it happened a hundred years ago the remarks were uncalled for. I would not recommend this game.

I have decided not to continue with this game. HO too small and cluttered. The mini puzzles accomplished nothing in the way of gathering inventory. Not a puzzle fan anyway. No actors or voices. The music was annoying and the constant barrage of ship employees' comments were tiresome. Became bored when I had to keep going back to the same scenes time after time because I "missed" something according to the instructions in each note.

I finished the game but was not impressed with any of the HO elements, or the puzzles. The story and TItanic trivia was interesting, the graphics were good, but not on a par with MANY other HO games. Ho-hum is the most I can muster for this one. Not a game I will play again...

Game was ok
I started off enjoying the game but towards the end I just wanted it to finish. Overall ok but not one of my favourites.

This game was ok, played with my 12 yr old. Of course he liked it cause he found all the hidden objects before me. But I was hoping for maybe a few characters besides all the employees coming up in bubbles. Would've liked to have seen the major characters of the love story but guess you can't always have what you want. The facts about the Titantic were good, some I didn't even know about so very historical in a way. 3 stars isn't too bad.

While the graphics were acceptable if uninspired, this game was simply too easy to be interesting for most adults. I like the brightness of the sunlit scenes, but the familiar subject matter of the Titanic should have provided a much better experience. And the game has no action of any kind, at least in the demo. It reminds me more of a board game, with enveloped letters and conversations appearing like cards from a deck to carry the action forward. The music and sound are irritatingly repetitive providing no atmosphere, and while the "mystery" may have been leading somewhere I just couldn't bring myself to even finish this boring HOS. There are far better games to spend my money on.

Run!! Don't get on the ship or buy the game!!
Strange game to say the least! I thought I was going to like it after the "Trial" so bought it. Had no idea it was just going to keep repeating the same things I had already done over and over! Just when you think you're going to move on you get a letter telling you you've missed some things at the previous locations so back you go but it's just a way to make the game longer! All HOS in the same locations with written blips of true trivia about the Real Titanic! About the first 3/4 of the game there are simple puzzles then they seem to fade away for awhile, come back towards the end. There are no real people in this game just drawings of head shots of 5 crew members and a reporter who's pictures show up and a few lines of true trivia. Don't let the beginning fool you into thinking it's going to be like the simulated news, that's the only action there is! It's a still game, no motion as you would expect with a game about the sinking ship! Locations don't have anything to do with the letters you get. It's completely dis-jointed and boring! It has a little history if you don't know the story at all.. The story they used to make this game in my opinion is silly!! I finished it as fast as I could because I just wanted it to be over!

1912 Titanic Mystery
To boring. Nothing to do but find hidden objects that were easy to find.
