Lost Secrets?: November 1963
Giving this a 5 star for 2 reasons, to offset the unfounded bad reviews and......
because this is a great game! It's fun, it's historical, whether it's accurate or not means absolutely nothing, it's entertaining and based only on the trial version I'm buying. I cannot for the life me understand the poor reviews. Seems some reviewers took the game personally, which I think rather strange since it in no way as I can see shows disrespect for JFK. The graphics are clear, it's challenging but the hint button is awesome at revealing the next step. Really glad I read further positive reviews and did not let the erroneous ones dictate my choice in trying out the game.

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.

Lost Secrets: Will we learn the "secret" of what really happened on the Grassy Knoll
Wow! Love this developer and I've always been intrigued by the JFK Assassination. What a perfect combo for me! First off the graphics are clear and colorful.The puzzles are fun and the storyline is gripping. I totally recommend this game!

Fun and Informative Game
I remember that day in Dallas like yesterday. This game has some new puzzles which are very fun and it does have a map which teleports. The hint system will also direct you to the location you need to be. I love the storyline (anything to do with the Kennedys I'm hooked). I highly recommend this game.

I agree totally with the first review of this game. Great change from the same ol' same ol', great graphics and very intriguing storyline. I'll be buying it asap.

I love this game. It's a bit difficult but and needs strategy guide from time to time..
I had to stop the game cause I couldn't get to the next level without a little help. You have hints but hints can go but so far.

A Rather Good Game
I have to admit that I nearly didn't get this game after reading a few poor reviews from others. But I decided to give it a try, the demo hooked me quite quickly and I wanted to find out what happens next.
The trips in to the past are really well done, as are and the trips back to the present with the information to be easily used on both sides of this game. If you know the some facts of the assassination of President Kennedy that helps a little bit, but it's not that simple.
4.5 out of 5 would be my prefered vote

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.

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.
