Mystery Trackers: Black Isle
Would have been a 5 but I HATE forced endings
This game had decent graphics, a good storyline, and although there was no interactive map to keep you from having to go 10 or more scenes back to get an item, I enjoyed playing it. The puzzles and HOS were relatively challenging, and there were a variety of them.
My only complaint is the ending, which is one designed to try to force you to get the collector's edition in order to get a satisfying end. I HATE that! I won't buy it for on principle now. I might have purchased it just to have more of the game to play, but when it is pushed on me after I paid for the initial game, I definitely won't.
Worth playing. If you want a "real" ending from the regular edition, don't bother.

This was quite fun, and the hint system was one of the most useful ones.
Hidden object scenes were nicely done, decent number of puzzles, and adding things to the HO scenes was a nice twist.
The only downside was there were sections about 3/4 of the way through where there was a LOT of running back and forth,
Some of the puzzles could have been just a teensy bit more challenging - but overall, this was a good game.

Very good graphics and storyline , but the game is very short

Good - Very Good - but not Great
The story is decent, and the graphics are great. However, compared to the first - and still the best - in the Mystery Trackers series, the puzzles are a bit too hard to be fun. It was also tricky to keep track of which items I need to use on which obstacles. I found myself relying on my frog buddy and the "Skip Puzzle" button more often than I would have liked.
Love the dog! Hope he turns in future installments! Using items in your inventory to help complete the HODs is also neat.

This is definitely one of my favorite HOG.The length was great, and I loved the different puzzles that it has. I found myself stuck on playing it and not wanting to put it down..however, I do believe the level of challenge could have been a little more difficult.

This game was really fun, and never got old or repetitive. Although, at times, I found myself backtracking across half the map to complete one tiny puzzle that would give me an object to help me... travel back to where I came from to do exactly the same thing.
Overall, this is a fun game with a little bit of thought involved.

Loved the sound effects
The sounds effects are reallty good - the storm sounded right overhead. The graphics are good also. Some of the hidden objects are a little hard to find ( not too bad). I had to skip some of the puzzles. The main thing I don't like about this game is it jumps around from place to place too much!
