Titanic's Keys to the Past
I had to try it
Even after reading all the bad reviews, I had to try it. They were right!!! I hung in for about 25 min. It was the longest 25 min. of my life. The HO's aren't so hidden. What a joke. Don't waste your time.

Not Too Impresed
The game doesn't have any spunk to it. It is more or less suited for a child. I need more challenging material.

what is this i don't even
This is BY FAR the dumbest, lamest, most ridiculous game I have ever played. I want those wasted few hours of my life back, not to mention the fifty IQ points I lost just by playing this game. I'll try to keep this review to what I thought were the three worst points.
First: The "heroine" of the story is drawn quite strangely. She has this bizarre expression on her face and is striking a silly pose, with what appears to be her feet crossed (you don't see her feet, I'm guessing) and her hands behind her back. She looks like she is holding in gas and doesn't want it to squeak out. (A side word to the developers...when one draws a figure with their hands behind their back, it means the "artist" cannot draw hands. Just saying.) Just seeing her in the corner of the screen made me angry. She says nonsensical things like, "I will help my great-grandmother. I will find the keys. I will help them." Or, "I will go down the hallway. Perhaps there is something to do there." I realize this is a game, but come on; it reads like an old-fashioned "See Spot Run" story. (I'm not even going to bring up the typos.)
Second: The stupid photos. I absolutely hated having to find pieces of a photo each time I faced a new situation or puzzle. Some of those pieces are tiny and when they are on a background that is white and grey (the photos are greyscale), they are next to impossible to find. It was supposed to indicate some kind of "psychic flash" on the part of our gassy heroine. After the second or third one, I was ready to scream. Who gives a flying fig about these torn-up photos? All they did was become annoying. Yes, they are explained at the end, but by then I no longer cared.
Third: The asinine, inane, ludicrous storyline. And it wasn't even an "it's so bad it's funny" kind of bad. It was a "KILL IT WITH FIRE" kind of bad. I only finished the game because I wanted to see just how bad it would get (spoiler alert: It plumbs new depths of bad).
The only reason I got this game was because I had a couple of free games coming and BFG was running a sale. I gave the game way too much credit and thought it would pick up or get better as it went along. It didn't. Do not waste your time or money with this game. I wish I could have rated it at zero stars, or possibly negative five stars.
Oh...and "S.S. Titanic"??? Fail. I expected a lot more from National Geographic. Your game is bad and you should feel bad.

Every scene has to start with finding photo fragments. What fun is that? The arrows are not directional and the hints are very sketchy with their info.
This was no fun whatsoever, but the music was nice.

I have enjoyed all of the Titanic games until this one. It was hard to navigate. I spent half of my time trying to figure out which way to go to the next scene. The hidden ofject pictures were good, but the other games were terrible. There was no information as to what you were to do. I was very disappointed.

RUN AWAY FROM THIS GAME
Do not pass Go, and for do not spend money buying this game.
Graphics are poor HOS are laughably easy and worst of all - there is no real navigation. There's no way to tell how to enter or exit the room. The cursor makes a slight color change if you're quick to catch it. But there's no real navigation to speak of and the hint only works half the time.
Bad outing by Nat Geo -- nice facts about Titanic and nice story set up. But once you start playing its just frustration station - no real pattern or sense - just rooms, HOS, and dead ends.
Avoid this game.

Dont get this game!!!!!!
This was the worse game ever. It didnt work right. You dont know where to go or what to do. When you click on the hint button it tells you to look around some more. The hidden object scenes didnt work. I was clicking on the object and it didnt work, even after I used a hint. This game is the worse game I have tried so far.

dull. I kept waiting for the game to get interesting... No directions,get to places and can't figure out what to do..

Waste of Money
The puzzles are too difficult for this game. This game doesn't provide adequate information in which direction you need to go. Usually love Hidden Object games, but this was a waste of money. Deleting it and not finishing the game.

Waste of time
The pictures were hard to see, the items were hard to see. There was no indications of where to go next. This is definitely a gamer friendly game.
