Odysseus: Long Way Home
Colourful easy paced game
I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. Colourful game with great characters and the legendary story line. Hints are helpful. Puzzles enjoyable, HOS scenes are interactive and do repeat. Played with grandson who was enthralled.

awesome and fun game
this is a great game. i had a good time playing it. it could have been longer but i still really enjoyed it. the graphics were great and the hints/skips recharged fast. the hint button will tell you where to go next. it is a game where a person can relax and just play. the mini games probably would be easy for others. i usually have trouble with them.
you are a greek looking for his wife and have to travel to get different things to get back to her. again it is a good game!!!!!

Interesting historical story
This is an excellent offering from Rainbow Games; the graphics are very sharp & clear with nice artwork. I enjoy history & this is a story about which I know very little so this fascinates me. There are a few anachronisms, for instance in a hidden object scene there were tomatoes but this did not spoil my enjoyment.
The music was very good & I also liked the background sounds. It is not widescreen even with the full screen option ticked but I really didn?t notice the black bars as I was engrossed in completing the tasks.
There is a very good mix of H0?s & mini games for which there is a skip button. In easy mode there are lots of sparkles & glints (even in the H0 scenes for the interactive items) with a 20 second hint recharge. In harder mode there are only sparkles for the H0 scenes & a 60 second hint. The hint button is very good, if you get stuck use it to find where to go next.
One negative for me was that the characters mouths moved but there was no voiceover & it was a little disconcerting; I would have preferred them to remain closed if only written dialogue is to be used

Very rich environment, lovely graphics and artwork in HOS. Easy to follow and not confusing or overloaded with finickity objects or content as some HO games are. Also, I agree - nice to have a break from the occult-type games that seem to be flooding the market and which are not good for young people especially to be playing. "What gets the mind gets you".

Fun Relaxing Game
I thought this was a fun, relaxing game. It's a nice change from all the dark, spooky games coming out. The graphics were bright and clear. The gameplay was a mixture of hidden object and adventure leaning more towards the hidden object side. I enjoyed the creativity in the inventory items. I thought the game got better as it went along. It's sectioned off into separate chapters each chapter with it's own unique areas and goals. The first chapter was probably my least favorite.

Relaxing, which is nice sometimes.
Easy. No need for walk through.

A good game, fine grafic, but not very challing, and as I remember not the true story(I read the book many years ago).

FROM THE BOOK, THE ODYSSEY
Based on The Odyssey - the chapters are about different tales but certainly not all, from the book. Good ratio of HOS (which may be triggered by looking around the scenes and objects may be very well hidden) and puzzles (ranging from very easy to somewhat challenging). Locations are bright and colorful. Usually 3 scenes per chapter. If you liked the book, you'll like game. Enough to keep you busy for a while.

Beautiful HOS, No Adventure
This game is for those who love HOS. The graphics are beautiful and clear. The music is appropriate. The ambient sounds are good as well. The people are mostly immobile, with their mouths moving during the script, and some other movement, such as the carpenter's knife moving as he's whittling. Instead of voice-overs, they have a written dialog. There is no adventure to speak of in this game, and since adventure is what I look for, this game doesn't appeal to me.

Educational value but a little dull
I only played the demo but was not impressed with the animation at all. everything very stiff with the characters moving the mouth and then a balloon with words. Seemed a little old fashioned like those from years past. Graphics were OK and very clear but appeared too regimented for me, like out of a story book. Music was fine. HO scenes were pretty easy so a little boring. Coloring was very nice. An educational game for Greek Myths so has some value for kids to experience the story. Just wasn't fun for me.
