Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind
A great ride
The scenes are wonderfully crisp, beautiful to look at and play. The length of the game and bonus material is fantastic. The built in walk through a special treat. Just a fabulous all around game! Don't miss this one.

this one far exceeds most collector addtions to date..!!
Very seldom do I review. This game is simply amazing!!! Serious players will love this one. The graphics are stunning. The gameplay is long ( very long ) and to boot some serious puzzles. I can usually fly through most puzzles but not this game. It took some long and hard thinking. This one is a keeper, one I will play again which is very rare. I file most of them. This game should be a collectors edition, in fact most developers could learn a great deal from a game of this caliber. Just download it. No regrets here. You can learn more about the storyline on previous reviews. Enjoy!!!

Amazing details with a challenging and fun atmosphere! A few areas are more complicated than most, and it was annoying going back to certain areas but the hint button can easily solve that issue.
Story line is amazing as it unfolds as you play it, and the use of interacting with the objects you pick up is also a great feature as well.
Purchased the game because I was hooked!

One word: perfect!
Well, pretty much everything has been said about this game. For me, this was hands down the best game I've played in a long time! I do not have anything to critcize at all!
Gameplay is long, you have achievements, extras and bonus play, a well-crafted story, beautiful graphics and music, clever puzzles, bright HOGs etc. etc. And best of all - you get all this in a SE! Wow!
This is definitely a game I will replay soon; it was so much fun and I'd definitely buy a sequel (even a CE one!). Developers, look at this game if you want to do it right!

I loved this for it to be SE
The game maker of this game I give them A+++' Better than a lot of CE games that I brought.
The game has a walk through and collectibles and a bonus section. Buy this game and you won't be sorry.

CE game for a SG price
This has to be a sleeper of a game as its is such good value and fun to play.The map is brilliant unlike some games and the game flows along nicely.

Hidden Object Game
Lots of HO's, some average running around to use items, but it was fun and not overly hard.
Sound and music fit the game play. Storyline was easy to follow along to. Extra gameplay took me a couple of hours, but I take my time.
The game held my interest and I did not get frustrated with what to do next. Relaxed game play.
I really enjoyed the game!

An Incredible Game!
This was not a CE but it had all of the attributes of one. The map lets you travel and tells you where the hidden symbols are; there is a very useful strategy guide (click on the footprints button on the right, next to the hint button) which gives you just enough information to get out of tight spots without holding your hand; and the hint button tells you what to do next if you don't feel like using the guide. AND, there is a bonus chapter AND a Secret Room after that. I was so sad when it was over.
Unbelievable for the price which in my case was nothing because I used a free game token.
A truly rare and pleasurable game. I enjoyed myself very much while playing it.

Excellent Pulp Fiction
Move aside Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe, a new private detective is in town and his name is Alex Hunter. A great detective story with excellent artwork, sharp graphics, very well done voice-overs and music that sets the pace for this Standard HOPA game that will thrill fans of the pulp fiction era. As a fan of some of the great American popular literature I read from Chandler, Hammet and Dashiell, this game offers an authentic atmosphere of that time.
I love the art direction and the details of that era are so well presented. From what I understand, the game is originally designed as a CE but thanks to our friends at BFG, we get it as a SE, and the best part is that there are collectables, achievements and a SG as well. Fantastic!
Our story begins as we take on the role of the great detective and what you thought was merely a case of the missing professor soon turns into something much nastier.
There are two play modes to choose from and game features include an interactive map that indicates tasks and allows for travel, a journal and a SG that works as a pictorial walkthrough. A well put together HOPA, with tasks and inventory items to pick up, puzzles to so?ve, standard Hidden Object scenes that are slightly interactive and mini-games that vary in style; nothing we haven?t seen before but some are interesting and even time-consuming which is right up my alley.
From what I can tell from the SG, it is a long game with a bonus section and as I said, you have to collect hidden symbols along the way and depending on what mode you play, you need to complete them in order to gain access to the bonus section. I really like the gameplay, intricate at times and some of the puzzles were not so easy. The story does get interesting and I really enjoyed the over-all atmosphere created by the dark graphics, 2D characters and the lingo used in the game. Definitely worth the time and effort!

I must admit, I wasn't expecting great things from this game ... but I was pleasantly surprised! It was a really good "Who Dun It" type game. The HO scenes (these are not my favourite part of HO games) are good, with little bits of surprise animation! The puzzles (my favourite part!) were surprisingly good - not too easy not too hard. This game is definitely going on my "To Buy" list! I'm currently playing MCF Fate's Carnival and when I have finished that then this game will be my next challenge!
