Escape Whisper Valley
Same old, same old...
Having played Escape Rosecliff Island, this game is what I suspected. You are stranded in a valley and meet no people during the whole game. (At least they tell you that beforehand this time around.) The story is told in a sentence: "You are stranded in Whisper Valley due to a rock slide, now escape."
+ some clues need more steps than one
+ game is long
+ some clues require thinking
+ compared to Rosecliff Island there are more minigames
- game is repetitive
- some wrong clues
- riddle clues are repetitive
- minimal story
- the final escape level is the only interesting one
Bottom Line: Tragically, the Match 3 bonus game is more interesting than the game itself.
By the way, I finished the game with 10 hours 36 left. If anybody ran out of time, please tell me what happens. I have no motivation at all to find out myself.

This is one of the all time most boring games. A cut and dried HO game. No plot, really, just scene after scene of HO. Gets boring really fast. Save your money on this one!

wasted my money
This is the very first game from Big Fish that I stopped playing in the early sections. You are trapped in Whisper Valley. To escape, you have to find screen after screen of fuzzy items (the same items over and over again), hidden in dark drab screens, and moronic puzzles intersparsed. Only if you are new to HOG and have nothing to compare it to, you might enjoy it,

No Sale On This One
BASED ON COMPLETED GAME
If you?ve read my reviews of any of the Escape series, you have read my reviews on all of them. They are practically identical, right down to the same objects.
In this, the second game, you are trapped in an isolated town and must find map pieces to help you find your way home. Okay, that?s the STORY covered, there is no more to it. This is NOT a HOPA, but a PURELY HO GAME, so there is no need for more elaboration.
The HO SCENES are ugly, with distorted items, and monochromatic GRAPHICS. They are cluttered with irrational junk. There are 25 scenes, which you visit 3 times each, and you have little say in the order in which the game is played.
The PUZZLES in this game are an improvement over the previous one, there are more different ones. Again, there is one at the end of each chapter, they are UNSKIPABLE, but EASY.
There are some good features: TIMER, COLLECTIBLES, UNLOCKABLE FREE PLAY GAMES, POINTS. But none of this is enough to make up for the appalling dreariness of these games.
If you like to keep it simple, my advice is try 100% Hidden Objects. At least there?ll be some colour for you to enjoy.

Where is my torch?
I uninstalled the trial of this game with 43 minutes left. Mainly because it is soooo dark - as are a lot of HO games unfortunately. Scenes here are depressing, storyline uninteresting, mini games/puzzles elimentary. Sorry, can't say a good word for it!

Strictly Hidden Object, Very Repetitious
This is yet another boring installment from these developers. The game opens with you being stranded in an abandoned valley and you will need to find your way out. And that's where the storyline ends. Gameplay is one hidden object scene after another, with the same minigames thrown in between. Sadly, they're just not interesting enough to break up the monotony.
If you simply want to sit and find hidden objects for a few hours then this is the game for you.
