The Missing: Island of Lost Ships
This game was just okay at best. It wasn't very challenging for one and there were way TOO many HOS. I mean literally you would find something, use it then boom, there's another HOS. No real adventure to it. Someone who doesn't care for more of a challenge might like it or if you don't go cross eyed from looking at a succession of HOS.

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.

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.

Not fun HOG
Could not complete an HOS..................could not blow up ball with a pump. Try for almost 20 min before I gave up and closed the game.. Also too many HOS for me...I like adventure this gives none.....as far as I got anyway....

The Missing: Writer
The Missing: Island of Lost Ships has gorgeous graphics. I would give five stars for the images. The game's intelligent cover art drew me in to try it. Unfortunately, the game did not live up to expectations. I should have known that I wouldn't like it with the opening monologue. No believable character would risk the expense, time and possible loss of life to pilot a ship during dangerous storms to find a medallion. Just using the word medallion does not make it seem worthwhile. Is this a historical artifact that would change the world or is it worth millions? That pulled me out of the story. Obviously by the laughable dialogue (not in a good way, because it isn't funny) and stupid story someone made the decision that a professional writer was not needed to make a believable story and dialogue. Also, the puzzles were too easy and the HOS boring. What a waste of talented artists' time (except the "writer" who had to be the director or someone's non-writer relative) and financial investment to make half a game.
