Travelogue 360 ?: Paris
360 degrees what a lot of FUN. Be careful you may get dizzy
Graphics are really good, I have been to paris and places are right on. The really cool thing about this game is the 360 degree aspect of it. You use the mouse and look all around the scene for the objects. Everywhere. Fun stuff in the pictures ie. dinos and space ships in old paintings. Challenging for some, I found it just fun, not to hard, not to easy.

Best out there
The Travelogue series are undoubtedly the best there is. I can't understand why there isn't higher reviews! It is unlike any other HO game you will ever play! It plays in exactly what it says 360 views and what beautiful views they are! If you have not tried Travelogue 360 hidden object games (Paris and Rome), you are seriously missing something! Please give it a try and don't forget to leave a review because I think they should seriously consider creating another 360 HO game!

Good, but not great
In this game, Travelogue 360 Paris, you go on 20 "tours" of various locations in and around Paris. There are 3-4 parts to every tour, and in each part you need to locate "souvenirs" using a 360 degree ball and directional arrows. There are two other games like this, but neither one uses the word "travelogue" in the title. You can find them if you use "360" for a search. This game has some wonderful elements: 1) You can see some highlights of Paris. 2) Rather than showing you exactly where something is, the hint button only gives you a gauge, and as you scroll around it becomes more green the closer you are to the object. There are also some elements that are not as good as one of the other games, "Rome: Curse of the Necklace". 1) There is lots more repetition in this game. Not only the same scenes over and over, but sometimes the same objects in those scenes. 2) The mini games at the end of each tour are almost always either a jigsaw puzzle or fitting things into a suitcase. The jigsaws vary, however, in that the pieces are different shapes such as grapes or croissants. In this game there are only 5 hints per tour, so be sure to save them up. If you use them all, you're just stuck until you can find all the objects on your own. Some of the tours, especially toward the end of the game, have 7 or 8 parts and up to 14 souvenirs to find in each part. All in all, I liked this game and gave it 4 stars. I had fun playing it, in spite of all the repetition.

An HOG with a twist
You are going to travel throughout Paris and visit the many sites, collecting travel stamps as you go.
The graphics were ok, not great. There were no voice overs but a LOT of voices ... in the background .... which made me very dizzy. As did the maneuvering around. There's a compass ball at the bottom of the screen which you need to move up, down, left and right to move around the screen ... up to the sky .... down to the ground .... and all around. This is how you find the items on your list. I got very dizzy moving around this way as well.
Once you find all your items, you get a stamp and are on your way to the next stop.
If you like games that are strictly hidden object games, you will love this game. You will also love it if you are a beginner. Experts and Intermediates might enjoy playing it on the "timed" mode for a greater challenge. There are only 2 modes of difficulty - timed and relaxed. No journals, etc. There appear to be a limited number of hints and no way (that I could tell) to earn more.
For the above reasons, this won't be a purchase for me. But, I will recommend it because ... well .... what do I know anyway - lol.
