another great game
I like finding soles on ships what can I say and this one does not dissapoint. the only reason I gave 4 not 5 stars is some of the puzzels are really hard and I skipped quite a few, I am just not good with constallations and hate those puzzles. other wise it was great. map that takes you places, hint button that guides you through making knowing where to go simple. I don't use sound so can't rate that but everything else was good. great visuals, hidden objects were reasonable except sometime you have to be a bit too exact in where you place things to get it to do what it needs to do. otherwise, great game.

Kind of Disappointing
Like a lot of other people who tried the game because of all the great reviews, I was a bit disappointed.
The voice overs were ok.
It was a lot of back and forth. (I guess too much back and forth) Sure games are like that, but this one just felt annoying.
I wasn't disappointed enough to not get the SE with a free game in the future, but enough to not pay for the CE.

Not that much exciting
Reading the excited comments about this game I became excited too, thinking there is something new and promising. Well, the start was quite interesting (no car, no raven but a boat, a poacher, maybe a good crime???) but I lost interest almost as soon as I boarded the ancient warship. Maybe it is only because I am getting fed up with this occult, esoteric way HOGs nowadays building their storyline. For a while a really hoped that maybe my character will work in whale rescue (OK, kidding), but I simply don't like chasing around idols losing ther earrings and boys turning into monsters :-)
By the time the demo ended I knew this game is not for me. If you are still new in HOGs, or simply addicted to Mayan prophecies (afterall this Mayan diary-thing deserved a game) you will enjoy it.

Am I the Only One?
Am I the only one who found this game disappointing? The only thing different about it was the hummingbirds, and even that got old after while.
Let's face it. Most of us don't really care that much about the storyline, especially since they're all so much alike anyway. What we're looking for is something new and different, something that challenges us to go beyond knives, ropes, valves & keys. And when we're playing in the "expert" mode we don't appreciate hints like "Maybe I can find a rope to tie to this hook". I think we can figure that out for ourselves after playing 50 to 100 of these games. If we can't figure it out we shouldn't be playing in the hardcore mode.
Maybe I just need to take a break for a while until something really new comes out. I don't like spending money on something that ends up being boring because it's the same old stuff.
I really had hopes for this game after all the excellent reviews. That's why I spent the extra money on the CE. It wasn't worth it.
Come on, developers. How about something really new & different?

OK, but not my cup of tea
This game is OK but nothing special with somewhat grainy graphics and not very clear sound.
It has 4 play modes, one of which is custom, a good guide, a detailed map which you find whilst exploring the ship, an achievement section.
You have to catch all hummingbirds and collect all beyond objects, so keep your eyes peeled as they are not so obvious and be fast for the humming birds. That part was fun.
HOS can switch to Mahjong, mini games are on the easy side.

Same as all other pirate ship games.
A scary dude, an octopus... and?
You can't go here, not there either.
Do silly little tasks to be able to go anywhere.
The game window kept minimizing randomly.
Arrrr, my interest be lost with this game, matey.

not for me, that ship tired me out !
I got really tired of it fast, up and down that ship, looking for something, I just got tired, I never got into it, I did not think those mayan gods were enough to keep me going, I could not have cared less !

Not As Great As They Say.
Hint and skip recharged fast
Loved the HOS. You were able to switch between the classic junkpile and Mahjong. HOS also contained interactive objects
Strategy guide included.
Great graphics. Very clear and modern.
Great voice-overs and great storyline.
I liked how many collectables were in this game; Artefacts, hummingbirds, pieces of the calender etc.
Puzzles. Most I had to skip, but I did like a few of them.
Had to rely heavily on the hint. Sometimes it was really hard to figure out what to do.
I got very bored very quickly.
Quite a lot of going back and forth which really annoyed me.
Repetitive sounds got on my nerves. Like the repetitive banging on the chest from the boy that was trapped in it.
The ending of the demo was really, really werid. It wasn't the sort of thing that would make me wonder what happened next.
Played towards the end of the demo and I have to say it wasn't really appealing to me. I'd skip this one
