Escape the Museum
What a difference over the years..
Played 2 first. It was challenging and ok. Thought I'd give this one a try. 30minutes into it, I quit. The graphics are horrible. I couldn't even tell what I was looking at. The game itself was way too simple. The only thing that made it hard was trying to figure out what you were looking at. I gave up. The storyline was decent but it just wasn't the challenge I enjoy.

My all-time LEAST favorite game
I bought this game a few years ago as the story concept seemed different and interesting. But I soon discovered that the numerous hidden object scenes with tiny, and sometimes almost invisible items to find, made the game tedious. Since there are many, many museum rooms to work your way through, I was thoroughly bored and VERY sorry I had laid out money for this game.
I will say that I have purchased other games by this developer that I do like.
As always, check out the demo for yourself. If you are into endless hidden object scenes with lots of tiny items to find, you may love the game.

clunky and dated - needs deleting from catalogue now. a re-write of the same storyline with updated gameplay would be good - dinosaur bones coming to life and running away would be fun !

Oh the monotony!!!!
The game is mediocre at best and that is on the "new levels" only as you are CONSTANTLY having to go back to prior levels and do the same thing over and over and over again. I love search games but this one makes me kinda hate em. Not only are you going back multiple times to do the same thing but the graphics are very poor. If you are familiar with the term "blob squatch" this game is riddled with them. 80% of the items you need to find look nothing like what they are supposed to be. Items hidden in dark corners with only one small dot of discoloration to set it apart from the darkness. Never have I played a game that I had to use the hint button so many times and not because they are cleverly hidden but because the graphic on each item is so poorly rendered it blends in with the background. So it really is not hidden but in a way disappears into the background making it not fun but pure frustration and would rather hint my way out than lose my eyesight straining to see the items. New levels are OK when you need to escape a room because they are indeed puzzles but other than that it is pure repetition to the point of being monotonous and not fun at all.
