Urban Legends: The Maze
i like this game . not so hard that it is frustrating and not so easy that it gets boring. best of all it is longer than the average hidden object game. which makes it worth your while.

For a non-collector Elephant game,
I would expect no voiceovers. This takes away when compared to other Elephant games, but this is a better of the reality TV games.

This is a different sort of game for Elephant but still great and well developed.
Interactive map making it easy to move between areas (just wish it was labeled)
Exciting and well-written story-line
Fun and challenging puzzles
Gripping action keeping one interested in playing
Muddy quality of HOGs making objects very hard to find
Cliff hanger ending (understand the desire for plugging a sequel but it could have been written differently.)

Another Good One From Elephant Games
As usual, brilliant graphics. Very realistic, lots of great desgins, very clear,
A great storyline. The intro did start off a little boring, but the storyline got better and better as you moved on.
Once again, Elephant gives us a game with great Hidden Object Scenes. I loved the challenge of them, they weren't too hard or too easy.
The hint recharged really fast.
Would've helped for the intro to have a voice-over.
Took me a while to get in to the game.
The puzzles (with the exception of the lever one) were way too hard. I found myself sitting and waiting for the skip button,
While I won't be buying this one, it was still fun to play for the free trial Check it out!

A lovely challenging game but the ending was not up to my expectations... yet a lot of things you can do and many puzzles make it more enjoyable

Middle of the Pack in a Sea of HOGs
As a story line, it was unique. You play as a detective who has to help four reality show contestants escape from the grips of an ostensibly crazed man. You will wander through booby-trapped sets on a TV lot solving puzzles and HOGs in an effort to achieve this end.
On the plus side, the developers gave a great map to help you determine where you are in the game and if there are any objectives left to complete in an area. Also, game play was very straight forward.
On the down side, puzzles and HOGs were only moderately challenging. If anything, when I found myself challenged with a puzzle it was because I was thinking it was harder than what it really was. Also, there were technical issues with the soundtrack dropping out regularly, which unfortunately took away from the game environment.
Net, this game is okay if you are looking for a unique story line, but may leave you wanting more in terms of challenge. There are other games that fulfill these qualities better, but on sale this title would be decent way to spend a rainy afternoon.

I have been noticing with a lot of hidden object games on BigFish have been hard for the first chapter or hour of game play, but become extremely easy once you purchase the game. The Maze was one of those games that really intrigued me during the trial, so I bought it.
I was happy with the sound and visual quality, but the hidden object part was way too easy. I felt like everything became redundant after a while, and I shortly lost interest in the game. The story line was okay.
Don't pay more than $2.99 for this game, any more than that it's not worth it.

Interesting, But Nothing Special
This game is a pretty standard hidden object affair, where you solve puzzles to get objects to use to get you to the next puzzle. If anything stands out, it's that you may wander for a long time and collect a lot of inventory before you can use any of it to progress in the game. The graphics were good, and the music and sound effects were not boring or monotonous. The storyline is rather disjointed, and it's difficult to figure out the big picture. The "Maze" is a reality show where ordinary people try to traverse from beginning to end. However, a number of contestants have gone missing and the player is supposed to find them. The game never makes clear why they were abducted - even at the end.

One of the better games lately
This game at least offered slightly more challenging puzzles compared to some of the recent games i have played. . .but that isn't saying much. The hidden object scenes weren't that great. . .pretty much collect the items that look like they don't fit in with the rest of the picture. The puzzles were also mediocre. I'm recommending this game because it is the only one that has kept my attention enough to go ahead and buy it.

This could have been so much better
I had high hopes for this game. It's fairly unique as far as the storylines go, of the games I've played on this site, and it could have been made so much better. Instead, it was a fairly run-of-the-mill game that really didn't offer anything unique or special. Having said that, it's clearly an older game, and was probably much more groundbreaking at the time. Having said that - reality TV is such a formulaic genre that a HOS based on one could've easily taken that and run with it - perhaps had some 'voting out' as it were.
If you're looking for something which won't make you think too hard, then this is the game for you.
