Mystery in London ?
Bring these back!
This was one of the first games I purchased on BFG. I absolutely love the 360 ability of these games. HOG's have evolved and graphics are so much better now so it would be stunning to have a new generation HOG with 360 capabilities. This is one of the few games I've played over and over. It really does give me a sense of London. I wasn't a big fan of the Paris or Rome games but this game is timeless. Please, BGH devs, bring out a new 360!

BEST GRAPHICS EVER!
I love this game, along with Rome: Mystery of the Necklace, and Paris: 360 Degrees. All three share a unique style of game play, the 360 degree type of scene motion that is vertical as well as horizontal, with amazing 3D photo-realistic graphics.
MOST VALUABLE TO ME AND OTHERS OVER 45: This kind of game permits zooming in for a closer look, which allows those who are visually challenged to continue to play.
I also like that this game has so many scenes that you could replay it after only a brief interval and it would be fun again.
I wish more of these games were available.

LOVED THIS GAME
What can i say. I loved this game. This is a virtual 360 HO game with good graphics and good sound quality. I loved traveling around London and sightseeing. I loved the music. It fit the description of the game. they offer a magnifing glass to search all of the small objects so that they are easy to see:) I definatly recommend this game. the mini games were fun to that included some word search games.

The whole 360 degree thing was quite different.I enjoyed the creativity in which this game was contrived.A memorable game indeed.

nice prep for your london visit!
so you've been planning your dream holiday to fabulous LONDON! you've read all the travel guides out there, you've got your AZ map book in your rucksack, you've planned a dozen or so walking tours and your camera is ready, so what will you do whilst on that long airplane flight to heathrow? play this game, of course!
this game has a map of london with a number of locations that you visit. when at each location, you have lists of items to find and click on and after you've found everything, you then play a mini-game, such as word searches, go and other games. you also meet strange old gentlemen who are trying to learn the identity of jack the ripper ...
one thing that surprises me is how much you can learn about a place simply by looking carefully at things, and that is what this game does really well.
graphics: really nice: they certainly take me back to london. in fact, playing this game makes me want to go back AGAIN!
there are a number of mini-games between destinations that are nice, and add interest to an otherwise rather passive game experience.
soundtrack: the music is quiet and sombre, but those cash registers? um ...
my recommendation: apparently, i own this game, although i certainly don't remember ever purchasing it. in fact, if i had it to do over again, i would NOT purchase this game because it's too passive for my taste (i am an adventure/hidden object/game-playing/interactive gamer), although i do think it's a nice relaxing game for those who are eagerly anticipating their london visit, especially if you've never been before.

very good if you like hos
there are loads of hos scenes, I don't mind a few but for me they got really boring, the mini games were very easy, the plus factor is as others have commented you do learn a few facts about history, which I did like . Sorry was glad when I finished!!

i didn't like this game and stopped about half way in. the hidden object searches were just too intense, with over 12 views to find the objects in for each puzzle. it drove me nuts. i just didn't have the patience this required. plus, using the magnifying glass to search for objects gave me a headache. needless to say...i didn't like it.

It was OK
The game was just OK to me. Not a very hard game at all.
Some of the scenes could have been "crisper".
The two things I really didn't like about this game:
1. Not enough of a challenge for me.
2. I despise having to watch credits! I don't watch them at movies, and I certainly do not want to watch them after a game is completed.
