Mystery Trackers: The Four Aces
This Series Rocks
I don't give many 5 stars but this one deserved it.
HO's were interactive and not too many of them
Mini games were ok, not my thing
Hint tells you what to do
Map is interactive and not confusing, all maps should be this way
You can depend on Elephant Games to do a great job.

Not my favorite, but fun.
Mystery Tracker games are usually fun and high-quality, so I was glad to see a new one in SE version. While this didn't turn out to be my new favorite MT game, I did enjoy it quite a bit, and it wasn't solvable (by me, at least) in an hour. You play a detective, of course, and are searching for the sinister Four Aces group, which is creating havoc in all sorts of scientific ways (a lot more science in here than cards, which was nice.)
As usual, the backgrounds and cut scenes were very well done. I didn't have much trouble with the HO scenes, but for some reason it wasn't often clear to me what to do next. Luckily this game has two really great features for confused people like me: the first is a really good hint system that, if you're playing in casual mode, refreshes pretty quickly and gives you ideas about what to do and where. The second feature really helped with that last part: the where of things. I don't know about the rest of you, but I tend to forget where certain areas or rooms are in a game and can have real trouble finding them. The map feature in this game takes care of that. If I found myself thinking, "Now where was that belfry?" I could simply open the map, move my mouse around to find the names of the locations, click, and I was there. Great. I hate spending more time looking for a place than I do on the puzzle that's there.
The storyline is ok, not the most unique I've found, but quite serviceable. All in all, a very worthwhile game.

hidden object game
I absolutely loved this game., I am not surprised as I have enjoyed everyone of the Mystery Tracker Games and anything put out by Elephant Games is always the best.
It was made fairly easy because of the hint system the one thing that fooled my was getting to the heli-pad but I managed to figure it out.
The graphics were great as usual, can't say anything about the music as I don't listen to it.
the hog's were fairly easy and I enjoyed the little puzzles that you had to do to find things.
I found some of the puzzles could have been better explained but then I am 75 years old and I am not very good at puzzles. Loved the little dog it made me want to go out and buy one.

I was skeptical at first.. but decided to try it eventually..
I do not regret it! i loved this game.. it was alot of fun. I really loved the graphics and how they used real people . I loved as well how there was alot of things going on and it kept me in suspense.. characters very interactive and i also loved that. Loved the Ho scenes and puzzles were somewhat challenging. Fun factor for me a 10!
Loved as well how the doggy was helping me out :D i will try some of the others in the series. I recommend this game.. definite buy..

Mystery Trackers - Four Aces
First time player and am so frustrated that I could scream. Can't seem get beyond the 1st chapter. I like a challenge but this is awful...ready to throw in the towel. Wasted my money.

good great fun
good long fun. Most of the puzzles are easy. The HOS are different in some areas where you have to find part to complete the item.
Have to find coins for the dog. Have to find hidden creatures which are easy to fine. Just a good fun game.
Cons. having to go all over the place to use items. Map helps and hint button works fast and good.

mystery trackers the four aces
while i did like this game very much. i wish that big fish would stop referring to this game as new. this is the 3rd time besides the collection edition, that this game has been referred to as new. i would recommend this game to all who love hidden object games with a storyline.

I loved this game "except" the back and forth...It made me tired running back and forth so much...Toward the end (I guess I was tired) I'd loose where I was...I really wish you all would lose all that running around in ALL the games... I recommend it IF you like running around...

Really good game
This is an especially fun game - just the right balance between mini-games, HOS and story. And having Elf as a really cute companion is a nice touch.
