Eternal Journey: New Atlantis
I am not a huge fan of sci-fi, but the story was so good and the game play was just challenging enough to rate 5 stars. Really hoping for a sequal

I LOVED this game!!!
This game is different from what you usually get. Pure science-fiction, from Atlantis to Mars! The storyline is very interesting. The graphics are crisp, the sound is good. The HOS are clear. The puzzles are easy but I liked them. There is a wonderful interactive map, it couldn't be better! No need to walk through all of the locations, just click! The journal is good, with the clues you've found. It took me 2 1/2 hours to finish. Although it's not the longest or the most challenging game I've played, it will be one of my favorite games!! I would be happy to see a sequel to it, just to get more from this sci-fi atmosphere!!!

One of the best games!
I loved this game! I really enjoy the hidden object games, and this game is now one of my favorites! Different from a lot of the others. Very entertaining, and the graphics were wonderful!

I just finished Eternal Journeys and loved it! In fact, I'm kind of sad that it's over. It was pretty riveting and when I realized I was almost at the end, I actually made myself slow down. I really wish there were more games like this. Loved the storyline and hopefully the story continues ... it sort of hinted at more in the end. Graphics, sound music, cutscenes ... all great. There weren't as many HOS as I'm used to with other games but that was ok. You do lots of running back and forth finding objects to complete a puzzle to get more objects to finish another puzzle or get to another room, etc. The interactive map was a huge help. The puzzles weren't challenging at all .. a couple of them were pretty boring.
Overall, loved the game, loved the storyline and would definitely love it if more of these types of games were available.

Excellent Game with Storyline
One of the best hidden-object/puzzle games I've played. Highly recommended.

One of the best games so far. I like the hog and adventure games and really thought this one was one of the better games

Enjoyed this game
I found this game refreshing because most of it was set in the future on space station on Mars. Normally I am not a big sci-fi future fan, but I also get tired of so many games set in an era around the 1800s.
This is one game where I actually watched the cut scenes instead of skipping over them, because I found the story interesting.
There seemed to be a pretty equal part of hidden object, mini game, and adventure rolled into this one game. Another great thing about it is that there is a map that makes traveling from one area to another much faster and it will show places where you need to still complete a task. It would be easy to make the game harder on yourself by not using the map if wanted.
The mini games were relatively simple, nothing too challenging. Voice-over and cut scenes were nice. Story line was okay and I didn't feel blasted with notes and books telling me all about it like a lot of games do - there were a few things like this, but easy to skip without affecting game play.
Overall I enjoyed it. I would say it's good for all levels.

I got this game, even though I'm not a big fan of the futuristic type games, based solely on the fantastic reviews it has gotten. And I wasn't disappointed. It was a lot of fun. the puzzles were fun and the game wasn't bogged down with too many HOGs. I liked the story and the graphics. The only thing that was sort of negative was that it felt kinda short. It probably wasn't any shorter than the other games of normal length, but I actually used the map to jump from area to area on this one and I think that made it go a lot faster.
If you want it to last as long as possible, and you can remember how to get around a very twisty turny ship without getting lost, I suggest you don't use the map to jump.

Exceptional Sci-Fi Adventure
A lengthy sci-fi adventure game.
-carefully constructed and unique story with good 3D cutscenes (if you love sci-fi, it can really suck you in)
-interactive map, showing where things could be done
-good ratio of HOS to adventure play
-good sound effects and better-than-average voice acting maintained the atmosphere
-beautifully conceived graphics from the stark Mars landscape to very detailed space station to underground train
-Marcy, the companion cat gained about midway through game
-may have too many HOS for some people
-puzzles were usually too easy
Excellent and enjoyable story and gameplay throughout.
