Big City Adventure: Sydney, Australia
Lots of Levels
I've played Big City Adventure games in trial versions and always enjoyed them, so I decided to purchase this one for the family.
My husband loves more hidden objects gameplay, than the actual mystery solving type HOG, so this was perfect for him! He's not able to do those complex puzzles, which this game doesn't have. The mini-games are simple enough for him to do and keeps his interest, even though they are repeatative after awhile. The mini-games can also be skipped later on the more you advance. My husband has memory issues, so this is really good for him and he enjoys it!
The sound effects and visual quality are average. It's not high-end like most HOG's, but still descent enough for game play enjoyment. Visuals are well seen, no dark scenes. Audio options can be turned off. They do have relaxed mode, which makes it a nice game for killing time! They do keep score, so you can compete with someone or yourself, if you like.
The best part of BCA games are the amount of levels they offer. The game seems to keep going and going! It's one for the entire family to enjoy.

I am with you Maddy! Love these games! I always learn a little history about each place they visit and for the most part is HOG! Love the music. Long game and has the extra bonus of being one that you will play time and time again!

big city adventure australis
This is one of the clearest and beautiful Hidden Object I've bought. The 3D is a surprise. The puzzles are a delight for a change and I have'nt had to skip one. I will do this in all the challanges.

If you liked the other Big City Adventure games you will love this one on Sydney Australia. Learn interesting facts about city while looking for hidden objects.

Austrailia on $6.99 a day...ha ha ha
I played the New York version of Big City Adventure first and was hooked. The Big City Adventure: Sydney game is equally as appealing and interesting. The game isn't just a quick run through it in 45 minute game, it is a very re playable game with dozens of rounds and terrific mini games in between each round. I strongly suggest that if you like trivia or to learn interesting facts about different places, read the script while you play, at least the first time. Once you play one Big City Adventure, you will have to have them all.

Fun game but not accurate to Sydney
I was looking forward to this one, as Syd is my hometown. Alas the pictures weren't too accurate on that account BUT it was a fun game that youngsters, other than my own who know the difference, would love. Fun and fast past...Enjoyable but I really think they should capture the Sydney flavour a bit better.

While this game is repetitive in visiting and revisiting the same locations, I found that many times you were more often looking for different hidden objects than the same ones overall.
I particularly liked the facts (via postcards) that were provided about the city; there were very interesting tidbits and despite revisiting the same locations, the postcards NEVER repeated the same history comments.
Be careful in using your coins (you need to pick them up in each hidden object scenes -- up to 3 each) as in later locations (particularly the last 3 or 4), it appeared to be more difficult to find the objects.
Also be careful in NOT using your "skip" button when doing the mini-games because said buttons do add up and you MIGHT want to use them towards the last 2 mini-games; though I had them I didn't use any but ALMOST had to. The "skip" buttons are earned but don't know how; the game just eventually states that you've earned a "skip" button.

GOOD FILLER GAME
This is a good "filler" game to play when you want something light and fun, between the longer HOPA games. The graphics are good, scenes could be a little lighter, but are ok. The puzzles are easy and the game gives you some interesting facts. Not so bad travelling while you stay home. I may have to get the New York version.

Fun to last over a long time
I loved this little game and it's huge - 76 leves of HOS with little minigames in between.
It's not the kind of game to keep you interested for hours. After a couple scenes the mind wanders -- so what I did was play another adventure game, then keep this on the computer. I played 3 scenes a day over the month so it was like taking a little "vacation" to Sydney every day. Finally I got to where I was saying "I haven't gone to Sydney yet today - I need to do that."
Items are large and easy to find, lots of hints, games are easy. it's really a great game to play with kids and the little history bits were fun as well.
