Mystery P.I.: The Vegas Heist
What can I say? Great game
This one added in a secret object that added an extra challenge. Which kept the game available for everyone but increased the difficulty. Not so much of a start and stop because of the secret object but still not something you have to play in one sitting.

I love this game and this series!
This is a wonderful hidden object game. There are 25 levels, so it's a game you can really spend time on and is well worth the cost. The objects in each scene are skillfully hidden, but the art work is very clear and easy to see. To play the game, you find hidden objects in an average of four scenes at each level. At the end of the level there is a mini-game such as Match 3, complete the picture, word-find, etc. When you solve the mini game you receive a clue, and when you finish all 25 levels, you need to use all the clues you've collected to solve a final puzzle. There are also "bonus" hidden objects in each new scene - a key and poker chip. The object is to find all 25 of each of these in order to play the "Unlimited" hidden object part of the game. After you finish all 25 levels, you can click on each scene and find every one of the hidden objects in that scene. As a "secret" bonus, you can also earn one million extra points if you find all 25 hidden fingerprints in each new scene. I'm a real hidden object game fan, so this game is perfect for me!

HOG LOVERS, THIS GAME IS FOR YOU
This game has a very loose storyline about a casino robbery in Las Vegas. Actually, it is nothing but HOS after HOS which is great for those of us who love these types of games.
In order to unlock the "unlimited" mode at the end, you have to collect 25 keys and 25 gambling chips. In addition, although this is not revealed unless you accidentally click on the fingerprint, which is also in every scene, if you collect 25 fingerprints, you get 1 million points added to your score. I played the timed version of the game but had no problem finding all the objects within the time allowed. In addition, if you were able to click several objects in a row quickly, you also got additional points.
I rarely needed to use the hint button, but once in awhile I could not figure out what the description was alluding to; the items were sometimes described instead of named.
The "unlimited" play at the end of the game consisted of revisiting all the game locations to find ALL the HO, over 2,000 of them.
All in all an enjoyable game and I look forward to playing the others in this series.

Big Theft in Vegas? Let them keep it.
I've just finished my marathon of Mystery P.I. demos. Some were pretty good, some were great, some were ok and there was one total dud.
I realize it's just a game but it appeared to me that in most of the other versions, the developers tried to stay true to the environment. I don't think they went to the same Vegas I spent 3 years' worth of vacations at - with and without little children. Vegas just isn't that dark and dreary as in most of the locations in t his game, even at night. So much for the graphics.
As for sound. Music and sound effects bordered, teetered the fence actually, on the ridiculous and the, well, still ridiculously pulsating noise. Where did they come up with THAT as a background music score for LV? And LV is not one long headache-inducing sound of slots after the other. A minute into the game and that had to be turned OFF!
As for the game play. These games are strictly HOGs (hidden object games). You are given "x" number of locations in a level to go an investigate. In addition to the 10 items you need to find, you may choose to find (in each location, not level) a key, a poker chip and a fingerprint. If you find all 25 keys and poker chips, you unlock unlimited seek and find games. Does that mean "unlimited" like forever? Because I can do that using the subscriptions to my favs that come every month. So, not impressed. If you find all 25 fingerprints, you get an additional 1 million bonus points. Oh, joy.
The HOG areas were so dark and dreary, so encumbered with what appeared to be many hundreds of objects that to find your measly little 10 items you HAVE to resort to point and click because to try to find them by looking at everything would surely induce a headache (I got a migraine).
The mini games were easy but fun and the games' only saving grace.
Needless to say, I was not impressed with anything about this version of the game and will not be purchasing it. However, have a blast. Maybe it's the only way you'll get to experience Las Vegas. If so, my sympathies.

The worse game of all that I own
I have never noticed a conclusion to this game. Just look for hidden objects in a casino. Let me know if anyone ever finished it without getting bored. I even let my grandkids look when they are here and it never ends. Please let me know!!! Does the mystery ever get solved.
I would not recommend this game.

Las Vegas Heist
This game would be good if I could just get to play. It gets stuck when it gets to popgames. I am so frustrated to have spent this money on this game plus the Lottery Ticket.
