Surface: The Soaring City
A Superb Game!
I have just finished the demo to my first "Surface" game and I absolutely loved it! The best part about this game imo is the story-line. The story is of a paranormal nature and is refreshingly different from all the usual games out there lately.
I was also pleased to learn that this game was developed by my favorite pachyderm team!
I love just about everything about this game. The only minor issue I have is that the graphics are slightly grainy and not the usual crisp HD I am used to seeing from elephant games.
This game is a definite buy for me and I am sure that I am just scratching the "surface" with this series!

Wow! I loved it!
I'm a huge fan of the Surface games because the folks that make these games have a lot of imagination. As usual, the plot is creative and fun. The HOGs are simple, and, for the most part, so are the mini-games. I usually don't like a game that's too easy, but in this case, the game flowed so well, and the story was so intriguing that when I first started to play, a couple of hours had gone by before I even noticed. I loved how the HOS were integrated with the game play. I purchased this game without trying the demo first. I didn't need to. This game is good.

The Best Game Yet
This is at least the second time I've played this game. I've played a lot of games since the first time I played this game, and that's why I'm writing now. This is the best of many, many games I've played. Every thing about it is first class. Story line keeps me interested, graphics are wonderful and I love the humor in the hints. I can't say enough good things about this game except it's excellent. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

The puzzles in this game were very different and a notch above the rest. The videos voiceover was rough. It appears the actors spoke a different language. The end came a little quick left me wanting more! Play this one!

Most Entertaining !!
Just finished standard game and thoroughly enjoyed it. I play a lot of HOS games but this one caught my imagination and kept me entertained the whole way through. I never got bored and the puzzles were not too difficult which meant I could solve them myself which makes a change from some of the bizarre and complex ones I've found with other games. I played the first in the series which I enjoyed but this one I felt was better. Look forward to the next installment.

I'm speechless about this "Surface HOG"....not in a bad way. You just have to try it then buy it !!! You won't be disappointed.

Surface does it again
Surface does it again. I loved this game. It is unique and enthralling. Game play is smooth and cohesive. The story progresses nicely throughout. HOS have the perk of requiring inventory items for completion and do not dominate the game. Areas are well contained and tend to move forward so there is no severe backtracking. Puzzles are fun,original and sometimes challenging. Graphics are extremely well done. However, the voice-overs are painfully out of sync with the sound. I can forgive this given the rest of the game was so entertaining. Great!

SURFACE - AN EXCELLENT SERIES - LOOK BELOW THE SURFACE
I have now purchased all three games in the SURFACE series and not one disappoints.
Great characters to follow and doesn't take itself too seriously. Mild comical moments, particularly in scenes involving communication with the main characters best friend in his flying machine.
Each of the stories has unique elements backed up by great graphics. The games actors help bring the surreal surroundings to life and make for an entertaining and engaging gaming experience.
Do not be put off by any negative comments this is one series worth following.
So if you like to be entertained, exercise your grey matter and relax into another world - look below the surface!

I loved this game!!!
This is one of the best hidden object adventure games I have ever played and trust me I have played a lot of them! It had everything I want in a game - graphics as clear as a bell, a map you can travel through, a lock on the inventory bar and a really unique and interesting storyline. I believe the characters (real actors) are speaking in a foreign language - the names in the credits all ended in ov so that took a little getting used to but everything about this game was top notch. I actually found myself thinking about it when I wasn;t playing I loved the story so much. I completely recommend this game to everyone who wants to spend a good 4 hours engrossed in front of their computer. I did not care for the first 2 games in this series - though I hesitate to call it a series they are so different - but I thought this one was great. It is in my top 5 of all time and my total favourite so far this year. Many thanks to the developers of this game for the time and effort spent on every aspect of it. I would love to see a sequel!
