Phenomenon: City of Cyan
Boring for me
After seeing all the 5 stars reviews I thought I would give this one a go. I played the demo, it seemed like a good game - until I bought it, then I was sorry I did. It soon got boring after that. Yes I will say that the game play for HOG's was a bit different than the norm. I wouldn't say the graphics were over the top, except the cut away scenes they were done rather well, neither was the story line for me either. It was a bit confusing at times as to where to go - thanks heavens for the map. Thought the puzzles were rather simple and didn't require to much thought. It ended to abrupt for me and was way to short!

Too many puzzles!
If you love puzzles, this is the one for you. If, like me, you hate them, steer clear. It seems like there is a new puzzle every minute or two and many of them seemed way to obscure. This is a good example of why I really need to use the free play time before buying. The game appears to be well done enough, but I quit less than an hour in because there are just too many puzzles.

phenomenon the city of cayan
I was playing the game not using the strategy guide. Used the ladder on tea house before i found locomotive and can not retrieve the ladder now to use on locomotive. Basically I can not finish the game.

not worth the money
very disappointing. the narrating was bad and way to much talk telling me what to do next...and that was expert mode. the graphic were poor and overall I cannot recommend this.

The story was confusing - kept talking about 'cyan' though have not idea what this means. Graphics and gameplay average. Voiceover is frequent, bad acting, very annoying and spoiled the game for me.

I'm sorry, but I find this game pretty boring. I bought it after the time triel was out, and I had about 1 hour left to play. The Hidden Object quests were very easy. You could nearly pick them all with out looking at the hints because they stood out. I've played others HO games were items was so cleverly hidden I was certain the object wasn't there :-) This is a game for younger people. Maybe 8-11y. I'm over 50, so perhaps that's why I think that way:-)

Stupid and dull
This is one of the terrible games I have played in the history of HO games. Graphics is bad, sound FX is so so, story line makes no sense.
Big red flags:
1. The cursor is super slow
2. Mini games are very simple and make no sense
3. The enviroment is so bad you do not want to play after 20 mins.
Nothing else to say. No pros. Please stop making games like this.

i really went with the reviews on this one...sadly it was too short and far to easy....not the best of this type of game...far from it!

Nice to look at, but not much substance...
Based on previous reviews I thought this game was going to hit it out of the park, but boy, was I disappointed! The graphics are gorgeous, but the voiceovers are nothing to write home about and the game itself is pretty bad. The plot holes are large enough to sail a boat through.
