Elizabeth Find MD: Diagnosis Mystery
I have only just brought this HO game & am enjoying it very much. Objects are easy to see, can have on time mode or no time limits. For beginners or more experienced players. Storyline interesting. Overall just a nice & pleasant game & 1 of the best Hidden Object games I have brought.

This is a HOG with a couple of puzzles at the lab that I was not too keen on. But overall, if you like a relaxing game that does not require alot of running around and thinking this would be an excellent game. There is another game in this series that is another good buy!

Simplistic but plot-driven
If you're a fan of House M.D.-type TV shows, this plays a lot like an episode (including having to do illegal house break-ins!). The game is simplistic. HO scenes, which comprise the majority of the game, are straightforward and easy. Puzzles aren't puzzles so much as "activities" like blood typing (put the blood in the dish, add the antigen, see if there's a reaction).
I'm giving it four stars because I enjoyed the plot. I like reading, so I didn't mind reading the dialogue; I'd much rather read it than have to hear bad voice acting. The relationships among the doctors were amusing and salacious.
The game is dated, and it hasn't aged particularly well, but if you're wanting to be entertained more than you want a challenge, it's worth doing the demo to see if you're intrigued enough to go further. Not a bad place to spend a bonus code.

Objects that aren't even relevant to the scenes
I liked the 2nd one better, it was a little more organized than this one. The game is ok for a rainy day if you want something to do that doesn't take much thought, but I really don't get having to find oars and komodo dragons inside a hospital room. I was a little disappointed in the lack of creativity with the objects you have to find. It's as though they got lazy and decided to throw in whatever object they could think of just to add to the list. "Oh, hey, we need to add more items! Let's stick dinosaurs and centipedes in there so we don't have to use our brains to come up with stuff that should REALLY be inside of a hospital!"
That's the way it looks to me.
It's an ok game, I've played worse. But let's try and keep the objects relevant to the story line, shall we? It takes away from the feel and atmosphere of the game and makes it all seem so fake.

Not that good
I just finished playing the trial and was not impressed with it. The storyline, I think, was the best part of the game. I wanted to find out what happened with Freddy but you can only do so much with 1 hour. Like a couple of people said, what was up with the items that had nothing to do with the hospital or story.Besides the centapedes and dragons what was up with all the baby bottles? It also had to much reading personally for me.I would have liked it better if they would have had real actors voices instead of me having to read all the info.

THE STORYLINE CARRIES THE GAME
This is a fairly simplistic game; nothing is too hard, but some of the hidden objects were pretty small. Two of the puzzles gave me a hard time. The MRI one, where you have to follow lines between two points because the lines were very fuzzy and hard to follow. And the bacteria one, where you have to be fast and accurate at clicking on moving objects; not my cup of tea.
There are 3 cases to solve and they are all tied together in the end. I don't know if this is based on a TV show, but it has that feel. The characters had a lot of character, pun intended. Their conversations, of which there were many, were humorous. But that is a lot of reading and not that much playing. No voiceovers, which would have added a lot to the game, but probably would have slowed it down, as it is faster to read.
There is a lot of repetition; same hidden object scenes (different objects), same puzzles, so it got a little monotonous.
I did run into something I had never seen before; a hidden object scene where the list of items to find were based on audio clues. You have to have the sound on and you click on the clue in the list and a sound is played. Based on the sound, you then click on the object that makes that sound. Not hard, although some of the sounds were short and I had to play them a couple of times to figure it out. Kind of reminded me of the radio contests where a sound was played and you called in to guess the item and get a prize.
The game was pretty short, even with 3 cases to solve. There was a lot of medical information included, which was interesting, but, again, meant a lot of reading. It was kind of fun, but I'm glad I used a coupon to get it.

Was not impressed
I found it boring. The hidden objects were redundant and did not even fit this type of game. Story line is boring and unnecessary at best. After about 15 minutes, I didn't even want to continue. I will not be buying this game.
