Mystery Trackers: Black Isle
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.

fun game to play
i have played a few of the mystery trackers game and loved them and this one is no exception. although, this one was a little harder to figure out what to do next i still liked playing this game.

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!

Good story and look, irritated by the back tracking
I enjoyed the plot and the look of the game. I didn't like how I had to keep going back and forth between locations to get the items I needed to proceed with the game. I was also irritated with having to use some items in inventory to complete the HOG. If you don't have that item, you can't finish the HOG. It is not always intuitive regarding what you need. It was interesting to see how the developers incorporated video into the game so that the people and animals that you interacted with were real rather than drawn.

Plan a visit to Black Isle!
What a thoroughly entertaining game! Played it all in about 3 days! Great scenery and well-drawn HOS's! Plenty of cute and original mini-puzzles. Seems like there are a lot of things to find, but you use some in the HOP. The map is good for getting around, layout is easy to figure out.
It is a well written and well developed story, although like other commenters here, ends a little abruptly. Elf, your companion is also cute and helpful! If you are after a game that gets you thinking and makes you use logic, this is one for your collection. I will play it again and deighfully enjoy the visit back to Black Isle!
