Hidden Expedition: Amazon
a frustrating game
This is one of the more frustrating games in the HOS genre. The hints aren't very helpful other than helping you locate where items are. Sometimes its very difficult to figure out where to use items in the inventory and some puzzles are not very well explained. I had to use the forum on numerous occasions and found that many others had the same frustrating problems I did. Not one of my favourites. I got it for free, so I can't complain too much I suppose. Visuals are decent and the music is not too annoying.

An Old Fashioned HO Game
If you like constant HO scenes, you'll like this one. I want more from the games now after having played so many. The scoring of the game seems useless. Not sure why a player cares how many points you receive in each scene.

Not much of an adventure
This game is basically one hidden object scene after another. I got bored after 20 minutes. It's relaxing, if that's what you're looking for.

What happened to Rachel?
One boring HO scene after another. One of the characters, Rachel, disappears and no reason or resolution is included. On some of the puzzles it took me as much as 15 minutes to determine the objective of the puzzle. Considering I am an advanced puzzler those of you who aren't are going to need a walkthrough.

Purely HO with a few puzzles, not an adventure!
From what I gather after 10 minutes of play is that you are requested to help find a mutual friend lost in the Amazon rainforest. Nothing but hidden object scenes, you do interact with certain items in the scene to obtain other items for use in that scene or a later scene or puzzle. That?s about all there is to it. I stopped playing after 10 minutes because the storyline just didn?t hold my attention and got boring pretty fast. Not a strategy or adventure game, not sure why it's classified as such, it is purely hidden object! Recommended for those that love only hidden object games without much of anything else, (which is why I selected "recommended").

I'm not impressed with this one...
I bought this game at my local entertainment store on a 'best of Big Fish' CD. Needless to say, I have already uninstalled it. Although the game had a fairly good storyline, I was unable to focus on that due to the constant HOS. There was one after the other with very little adventure to this 'adventure' game. Also, I found my eyes straining to find the objects in the scenes after only an hour of play. I didn't find the graphics to be as crisp and easy on the eyes as I would have liked them to be. The game did have a considerable length to it, which was a plus. I did finish the game but was left with a bit of a sour taste in my mouth and a couple of very sore eyeballs. If you are looking for a long game with many, many HOS, very few puzzles and limited dialogue, then this is the game for you.
