The Missing: Island of Lost Ships
For this time of year it a good game
Played the first hour, I got into the game quickly, it is interesting, if it catches me right away I will enjoy and have purchased this game. So far, no regrets, it is very interesting and the games are not easy but not overly difficult. Thumbs up Big Fish

Not up to Snuff
I will have to be in the minority here. I don't feel this is a very interesting game. No excitement, no sense of urgency to save your "friend" who just happens to want an ancient artifact that probably doesn't rightfully belong to him. The puzzles were quite easy and the HOS were just okay. I did feel the graphics were nice and the music was suitable, but those two things don't make up for the lack of pizzazz. This was a slow moving game and not for me.

I love ships and islands, and based on the many 5 star reviews, I bought it without doing the trial. Big mistake! Some of the graphics are decent (definitely not great), but it is the goofy 3D avatars that really turn me off. I guess a lot of gamers like them, but if you don't, I strongly advise you to try before you buy.

Very decent SE
I have a very extensive collection of casuals and I must admit this one is not that bad as some try to picture. Just have enough patience.
Everything fills perfect in the context. The storyline is really grasping not to mention the excellent clear graphics. HOS are not junkpile but varied and progress as you move further. Brilliant music and voice-overs prompt you not to turn them off while playing.
Anyway do not run into hustle and at least try it.

Not As Good As The First One
Way too many hidden object scenes. More than the first game: Missing: A search And Rescue. The story line was good as you go in search of your friend. The quality of this game overall disappointed as it seemed to be rushed through or it wasn't properly finished. It didn't draw me in as much. If you want a short hidden object/very little adventure game than I would recommend it. If you want a game as the same quality as the first one don't bother unless you have a free credit. Which is what I used. I am glad it didn't come in a collectors edition. When you play the game you can see why

Really Fun Game
The setting and characters in this game are excellent. This is one of the best games I've played from that standpoint. The artwork and music are very good, too. Good VO. Game play is well thought-out without a lot of strange use of objects as in some games. There is a map, that while not IA, it does show where action is needed. The HINT button also points in the direction for action. The HOS are mixed with some words and some silhouettes along with some IA. The puzzles are easy to difficult with a fairly fast charging SKIP. I found this game to be a joy to play and hated to see it end.

Ahoy Ye Land Lubbers
I thoroughly enjoyed this game !! I usually play with the music turned down but there were a couple of background songs that were soothing to listen to.
I played in Normal mode and didn't have to use a hint. Puzzles were interesting. Loved the artwork and graphics. The computer generated stuff melded well with digital film of sea waves etc - gave the game a lost-in-the-Bermuda-Triangle feel to it. The "movie" sections were well done. Actually have to take items directly from the film characters. Hope others enjoy this game as much as I did. Later fellow Hoggers.

A hot bowl of mushroom soup on a VERY cold winter's day....
This game kept me enchanted for the entire hour of the trial. I barely got through the restaurant area before my time was up.
I will definately be purchasing the full version.
: HOS that are interesting to look at and include interactive elements. I was able to find everything without hints and nothing was off-screen.
: Intriguing Plot
: Excellent balance of cut screens,puzzles,hidden object areas and tasks.
: Calming music and sounds of the sea.
: Comedic elements in the messages and dialog that gave me the giggles. Scuttling crabs and other cute distractions.
: Brownie points for using skeletons,mushrooms and the Kraken. We be pirate fans. Aarrrrgh!!
: Nothing in the first hour that would be labeled as "scary" or "gross" by my 7 year-old so she will be playing along as well.

The gameplay is smooth, if you use you map. HO @ every turn. Very basic, as far as a HO goes. Good graphics and storyline.
