Flux Family Secrets: The Book of Oracles
Great game, fun and challenging.
Great game with challenging Chapters.

The Flux Family games are a nice change of pace. This one is a long game and toward the end I was beginning to wonder when it would end.

a good game in the series
i am getting tired of the flux games but they are good games. they aren't overly hard but make you think. hints recharge fairly quickly, but i find myself getting tired of playing them. it is NOT the game, but my preferences. all the games are good. this one and the one before it in the series were typical flux family.

OOPS! They didn't do it again
First let me say that I really like(d) this series.
One of my favorite things is the right-click magnifying glass in the HO scenes ... even though I still had to refer to Hints in several of them.
I like the "cartoonish" art work.
Unfortunately, the cut scenes and shifts between chapters were as slow as molasses in winter ... and this is in a pretty high-spec machine.
What tore it for me is that (what I believe is one of the final scenes) all of a sudden, the screen resolution changed to where I could no longer see everything on-screen. Never did get ot finish the game.
Regrettably, I can't recommend the game.

Is anyone else tired of HO scenes every 2 minutes? Or this trend of making you wear a tool belt? I'm so sick of always looking for a wrench or a screwdriver. And HOs should be left to those who know how to do them in a creative way (the MCF guys).
The original Flux was great--beautiful historical scenes with a zoom button, no less! One of my all-time faves. And NO HO lists--I loved it.

Not the Best Flux Family
The story relied too heavily on knowing the first 2 games. I played them so I sort of knew what was going on but not really. Plot was really hard to follow. Puzzles were uneven. Thank Goodness for the skip button. The game started to become tedious and the puzzles not fun to do. Graphics were good. HOS were standard fair. A lot of traveling to do so it became tedious as well. It was OK to play. Glad I used a credit.

On the fence with this one
I only played the demo of this one and found it a bit simplistic. You need this, you play a HOS and get the object then move on.
It was a bit different in that you have to find parts of objects and the puzzles were okay, but I like a bit more of a challenge in the 'adventure stakes'.
I also had probs downloading and playing the game and it only worked properly on the 3rd attempt so that was a bit furstrating.
As I said in the title I am on the fence with this one and would only buy if nothing else I want to play.

Time travel that feels very old
Review based upon completion of the game.
This is the conclusion of the Flux Family saga. This also means that you better play the first two or the story won't make much sense to you, even if the game tries to remedy that by a short synopsis at the first movie machine. This time around Jesse tries to remedy her screwup at the end of Part 2, but initially fails. Then it's up to her to help the usual historical figures to save the family (and the world?) from certain doom on December 21 last year.
+ FROG and HOG scenes
+ the magnifying glass is back (right click)
+ search for Flux Facts
+ "All Star" made me laugh
+ diverse mini games...
o ...but all of them are easy
- more often than not the hint system is utterly useless
- graphics and videos are still the same as in Part 1
Bottom Line: Buy it for the conclusion if you played the first two games. This series was great at the release of Part 1, however, since then gameplay has evolved, but this series is still treading water at the level of part 1.
