Mystery P.I. - The Lottery Ticket
Fun Hidden Object Game
This is a standard hidden object game with a mini puzzle in betwen each hidden object scene (that may include several locations). There are additional hidden objects to collect to unlock bonus content. The visuals and soundtrack were okay, the hidden object scenes were great.

What Happened to Casual Mode?
Because I own several Mystery PI games I bought this one without trying it out. I was disappointed when I discovered there was no casual mode. Just timed. I am a Nana with a memory problem and I use these games as brain exercises as well as for fun. I don't do the timed mode ever. I love Spin Top games because they have some of the best graphics, the best HO's and no big story line with having to go back and forth finding things to beable to continue. I gave it only 4 stars because of the lack of a casual mode. Only one I have bought from the Mystery PI series that didn't have one.

Similar to Mystery Case Files earlier HO games
This game reminds me of the first HO i got hooked on - Madam Fate. This is not HOPA purely HO scenes. Find the "keys" to unlock bonus areas. After each scene you solve a puzzle - easy peasy ones (MCF had harder puzzles) i.e. find matching pair or colour. Great fun if you just want to relax. Also reminds me of MCF Huntsville. Try it and enjoy!

Not for bad eyesight!
The game is alright but if you have any eyesight issues I would.nt get this one! Kinda boring too & I don't like the music so I mute it when I play. I'm sure there's better ones to spend money on! Sorry Big Fish, I love ya!

After going through 5 scenes on the demo, I realized I wasn't enjoying the game because the scenes are unpleasant to look at. At first I thought it was all the junk piles. But even if the scenes were devoid of clutter, they are just plain unattractive. These aren't rooms you'd want to be in. It made searching an unpleasant experience and I couldn't wait to get out of there. Check out the difference between this game and the wonderful crisp scenes in Amazing Adventures: Riddle of the Two Knights

Not the best game in this series
This is my least favorite of the Mystery P. I. series of games. The art work isn't nearly as clear as in other games - the scenes often look very messy and some hidden objects are unclear, tiny, or too dark. To play the game, you find hidden objects in an average of four scenes at each level. The game has 20 levels. At the end of every level there is a mini-game of hidden matching. The problem is that this gets very boring after a while playing the same type of mini-game every single time When you solve the mini game you receive a clue, and when you finish all 2o levels, you need to use all the clues you've collected to solve a final puzzle. There is also a "bonus" hidden object in each new scene. If you find all 2o keys you get to play the "Unlimited" hidden object part of the game. I would save your money though and try some of the other Mystery P. I. games. The others are much better!

Maybe the most tedious game I've ever played
Ok, thisi is an old game but how can it be that there's just one type of puzzle in the whole game?
Hope the next ones are going to be better because I've bought them all. Fail!!!

Having bought and thoroughly enjoyed the Mystery PI games Curious Cove, London and San Francisco, I felt confident in buying 2 more -- this one and the New York one. Both these games are awful -- way too dark, too crowded and, worst of all, operate only in timed mode. I like a relaxed game where I can take my time. I don't like being pressured to finish something in 3 minutes and, if you don't finish, you have to repeat that whole level. Also, it is so dark that you basically just have to click around and hope you find something by accident because even if an object is visible, it is often unrecognizable as to what it is supposed to be. Not at all happy with this one.
