Age Of Oracles: Tara`s Journey
A Talking Peacock!
Tara suddenly appears out of a giant card and begins asking a beautiful peacock where she's at. I wasn't blown away by this strange little game but it does have some entertainment. The peeve I had the most with this game was the cluttered junk piles of hidden object scenes. It's as if someone was moving to a new house and all the random items they were moving fell out of the truck! Some of the scenes require you to take items from the inventory bar and place them back into the scene. The items are already there, just grey in color and you just locate the same item and place it onto the item in the scene. There are list finds as well, again just random items spewn about. There are different portals into other worlds that are unlocked as you progress. There are interactive scenes where you scan your cursor over the scene and when an item begins to sparkle, there is an interaction required and it will tell you what needs to be done such as a chest and you need to find a key to open it. In my opinion, younger kids will really like this game filled with talking animals, wizards and easy tasks to complete, enjoy!

Fun but too easy
This was a fun game and just a little challenging. The graphics were very good. It was a little easy but the storyline was easy to follow and made sense. Great fun.

just not into it
Too many HO's for me. Although some of them were a bit different from the norm which was cool.

The same pattern repeats itself
Place the object on a black and white picture.
2 Hidden object scenes which are OK.
1 card game
1 mini adventure game.
Over and over, and over... The first three times it is OK, then you wonder what's the point. The storyline is basci enough to keep going from one scene to the next, but no great shakes.
They should have learned that long games should build on difficulty. With all the nice variatios of HOGS, this one chooses to go on and on and on during the same things.
If you like HOGS, and want some mindless entertaniment for s few minutes, it is OK, Don't ask much, and you won't be disappointed.
