Secrets of the Dark: Eclipse Mountain
Good, but not exciting!
A rather good game. Good graphics, voiceover, music. But I haven't found something to excite me. The usual puzzle types, not a special story.

Good, but feels rushed.
Fun, but seriously short on actual hidden object scenes. Maybe just my luck recently, but more and more of these games have more running back in forth with a found object or two and don't offer much in the actual type of game play that they're labeled under. I miss the old school types, I suppose.
Running around with objects to complete tasks can also be a bit frustrating as developers likely haven't had to multitask with a screwdriver, crowbar or hammer before... pretty standard.
Overall a good H.O.G. but towards the end of the game, (no spoilers) things feel very rushed, as if developers ran out of time to complete things.
The end scene has to be the shortest in history and further adds to the rushed feel.

Not what I thought
Too many mini games - not enough HOD's

I now further understand why Orneon games are not selling. There is too much find a bunch of stuff before you can solve anything. Way too complicated for the average player to call it fun. If BigFish dropped the whole line it would be OK.

Stupid stupid stupid
Don't waste your money. The developers must have thought it was funny to put in that ridiculous arcade ball game at the end. When I buy a hidden object game I expect it to be a hidden object game, not an arcade game.
