Big City Adventure: London Classic
This is a game for seniors (70+) or for those who want no level of challenge. Some of the hidden objects were so easy to spot it was embarassing. But the visuals were bright and cheerful and the tid-bits of information about old London were interesting even to someone who had lived there. I read the reviews before purchasing, so knew what to expect. Give this as a gift to your elderly parents or grandparents. I'm recommending the game for a specific audience.

This game is too easy so extremely boring. I spent more time waiting for the games to load than to actually play a level. I wish they would bring in more games that actually take time to play, like the Westward series. I'm considering cancelling my membership because I spend too much money on games that take at best 3 hours to play. Also I'm tired of the dark themed story line of HOS games. Too many ghosts, spirits, and the like that they all start sounding the same.

Good but not as Good as Previous Ones
I love the Big City Adventures. Did not like the regular London version at all. I prefer the straight hidden object games so liked the Classic. This didn't seem to be as good as previous Big City Adventures though. It could have been a little more difficult and I hate the scarabs. They have to go. Totally confusing and not enjoyable at all for those sequences and as others have said, not enough skips. I also agree that it was not long enough at all. I get hooked and usually play more than one game at a time but I was through with this one in no time.

If I had to do it over, I wouldn't buy this game

What's Happened to the Artists?
Very poor picture detail, I have waited for two years for the latest Big City Adventure. I was pretty sure that it would be London due to the Olympics, like Vancouver. I gave everyone at Jolly Bear a pass on the art work for Vancouver as I thought they were rushed to get it out in time for the Winter Olympics, well they've had much longer for this one and the art work is poorer than the last, the games between rounds are horrible, who came up with the lighted jewels and scarabs? I am sooo disappointed, and quite fed up with the Big City Adventures.

ARM CHAIR TRAVEL
I like the Big City Adventure games because you learn a lot of trivia about the city featured in the game.
This game has 51 HOS, each of which are followed by a puzzle. All the City locations were repeated several times, with different HO to find. Some of the objects are hard to find. The puzzles are repetitious and not too hard. One jigsaw puzzle repeated itself exactly, which I thought was silly, given all the locations that could have been used.
I was able to earn only 5 of the 12 achievements. Several of them were based on speed and that is hard to do. I played to timed mode, and never had any trouble beating the clock.
You don't have to think too hard with this game, which can be relaxing.

Big City Adventure

I have enjoyed most of this game; however, I have been stuck for months on one puzzle! Didn't know I should really try and get those "skip" buttons for times when I need them. Really nice scenes, and I enjoy the postcards with the descriptions of places of interest. Would love to go to London again, and pay attention to all the things I missed the first time around! I recommend this game, hesitantly.

Good Big City Adventure Game
I played this game for almost an hour (lots of fun) but couldn't get passed my last mini game and no Skip coin !! And there is unfortunately no way to earn more Skip coins... I would only recommend this game to expert players.
