Flux Family Secrets: The Book of Oracles
my Favorite Games
The Flaux Family games are my favorite of all. It has everything. I do not have any negative comments. The story line is very interesting including famous people from the past makes this game so much fun. It has a touch of history, fun science, excellent graphics,excellent sound. Only one thing wrong: We have to wait for the next one!

Pretty much like the other
This is pretty much a HOS. Has voice over. Lots of finding items to keep going. Pretty much like the other flux family games. I get tired of just looking for items. I like a little more adventure.

Better than Rabbit Hole
Seeing that I played Flux 1 & 2 a while ago it's like playing this game for the first time w/o playing the sequels. I vaguely remember the two but I remember not caring too much for part 2. This one the mode plays the same way. Fragmented objects throughout with hidden object scenes that sometimes have interactions with in it tends to make me a happy iHO gamer. I've used the hint button quite a lot and have found the mini games a bit of a challenge. I like everyone's VO except the main character. Her elfish high pitch voice is annoying. I haven't played all the way through but knowing this is the last sequel I'm glad I gave this one a chance.

I have the first two and really liked them. Not too sure about this one. It is different, not as much interaction with other family members. Nice graphics, music and voice-overs. Game play is very nice. HOGs easy. I do like the need to "find" parts and not just use the HOGs for everything.
Not a very good flow to the game. Leaves a lot to guess work or the need to use the hint system. I will put this one in my puddle and think on it a bit. Thanks for the reviews.

Extremely unique and challenging
I had never played these Flux games before and it took a LOT of getting used to. Luckily the hint button will help a lot, and I about wore mine out finally finishing the game. It is nothing like any other, and VERY long and intriguing. There are a lot of puzzles which sometimes are not explained well, and so different that my illogical mind just moved me to the skip button a lot. The story is very unique, graphics are absorbing, Just the right amount of HOGS.
No ghosts, just traveling through time and helping put machines together for the likes of Sir Isaac Newton and Einstein..I have never played anything like this, and am not certain if I really liked it, personally, but it was one wild ride, and never boring.

THIRD IN THE SERIES
This game is about time travel and mixes facts with fiction as you travel through time and visit different world locations and time periods in an attempt to save the Flux family from world destruction. Various famous people throughout history are highlighted in the game.
The graphics are bright and sharp. Although there are the normal hidden object list scenes, every scene has objects that must be found, either to add to inventory, or to be combined and then added to inventory.
The puzzles are varied but not that hard. The game is fairly easy to figure out what to do next and how to do it. At no time did I need to refer to the strategy guide, although I did use the hint button at times to figure out the next step.
Kept me interested and involved the whole time.

Don't start with this one of the series!
I did start with this game which is one of a series. It threw me off until I let go and just played. You can get confused enough with the time and place jumps.
The story line is that you are trying to rectify a time mess you've created in the past. You run in to relatives who have been out to get you in the past but are helping you now but they've been warped by the need to get everything aligned to "save the family". Bad family dynamics!
There are time portals and again you help famous people from the past.
The art work it good but the characters are cartoony and conflict with the scenes. You have to find HOs everywhere you go - some are hidden inside things. You can also click on them and the "hint" button shows you the shape you should be looking for. Then you put things together and gain a tool to use in another scene. The animation is negligible and the dialogue isn't terrible inspired but does add minimally to the game.
All in all a good game.

Nice comeback from Family Flux
I must admit, I liked the Book of Oracles better than the previous two. Because it was a little bit more challenging than the others.
Of course the story, visual and sound was great as always.
I really liked that there were many remarks about famous Scientists involved in the storyline.

Good, but hard to navigate through some things
I love the series, and bought it immediately. But was disappointed in the navigation of the game. It was not up the standard of the previous Flux Family games. Because of that, the flow was disrupted, and was frustrating at times.
Still, I recommend the whole series!
