Lost Secrets?: November 1963
I disliked this game so much I couldn't play longer than about 20 minutes before getting disgusted with it and deleting it. Many found the graphics crisp but I would describe them as dated and amateurish. The lack of music and voice over only added to my disinterest in this game. What little animation present was slow and jerky. All in all, a disappointment to me.

Good idea, not a good game
I'm interested all things JFK, so I cashed in a credit for this one. It is the shortest game I've ever played. Little challenge. Even if it were a daily special, I don't think it is worth it.

worst game i have ever purchased
this would be without doubt the worst game i have ever bought from big fish. the hint/items for use defy logic, asked to rate storyline, what storyline apart from the kennedy assassination which obviously was used just to sell the game, any other link is purely accidental. and fun factor , totally non existant.

Played the demo
I loved and respected JFK to the max, and recall what I was doing and where I was at, on that fateful day. Although many folks seemed to think it was...tacky, I didn't.
Realistically speaking, when one returns from beyond to seek help for creating the 'better' future, a person would need a great knowledge of the challenges we are now facing, and compare them to the time of his murder. It's an entirely different ballgame when one is killed, then if they die from natural causes or a disease. Their soul/spirit cannot rest until things are accomplished. I could see the in the story line immediately. JFK left several things undone; things that were setting on his desk when he was murdered. He wasn't perfect, but as a President he stands with MLK. And for those who respect the truth about what actually is, can understand where this story is going.
This game, to me and my insight, is telling the player...help me to change things, for the future. Unfortunately, and in reality, they've literally gone undone and have taken many turns to the dark side.

JFK story lovers..............
If, like me, <YOUR> into the history of JFK and November 1963..... this is the game to put your theories aside!
Your involved, with "the man himself", in a twist of fate and history. Your not there to solve what actually happened, that is a side issue in this game. JFK talks to you and advises you in the 'twist' around ANOTHER major player.....and their family.
Without spoiling the game. I found it rather good to see some of the things that happened on that fateful day and to have a different view...even if it is only the game makers ideas.
I really enjoyed the game. I hope you do too.

Not too bad, if not taken too seriously. [SPOILER]
I remind myself: ITS JUST A GAME. It's not like we're taking cyber-guns and making popshots at JFK! i see that most folks here are apalled that someone would design such a game. I'm a fanatic when it comes to researching historical data so when I saw this HO game listed I just HAD to check it out. The storyline isn't about JFK perse, but the woman crusading the mystery of her mother when she was a child surrounding the events of Kennedy's assassination. The assassination itself is more of a backdrop for the character in the story.
All and all this game, not #1 on my list, but fairly entertaining as I oppose some storylines about the 16th & 17th centuries and prefer more modern HO/TM games. I wish people wouldn't get so hung up on thinking this game is poking fun at one of our nation's most beloved presidents. This game is a much better concept than the latest movie that's out which is about Abraham Lincoln returning as a vampire!
I'd say give this game another chance. Good day!

I recently completed the game and found it interesting with a surprising ending. It has nice graphics & very helpful hints that direct you wherever you need to go. It was quite short but I enjoyed it.

For history lovers
I enjoyed the beginning of the game - the menu is set to look like a 60's style radio. Gameplay graphics are okay, but not outstanding. Gameplay itself was clunky and I found myself thinking of the things to do as chores instead of having fun solving the puzzles! I didn't think the storyline itself was very logical lots of the time, either. But the live footage and documents from the time period are very worthwhile and a nice touch!
Being German, I will not rate the storyline - I didn't have a problem with it and thought it was really interesting, but apparently, it's still a sore point with alot of Americans! I can see kids having fun with this one, though, and at the same time they learn about history! Unfortunately, a no buy for me, though, but I've definitely seen worse, that's why this game gets a recommendation from me!

If your a history buff you'll love this.
So I first read some of the reviews before I played the game and thought oh well this is going to be another straight HO with just a little bit of adventure, but I actually liked it a lot!. I loved the history in this game and how they presented it, even though you had to go to the past it kept me intrigued the whole demo. I liked how the hints showed you exactly what need it to be done at the time, like when you clicked on it it will even make you back track if it was in another scene what you had to do. This is one of those games that if you like the story more than the game itself you should buy it.
