I LOVE New York .... New York .... the BIG Apple!
So, yeah, I've been on another marathon. Obviously, this one is the Big City Adventure series of games. Toronto, I thought, was my favorite but, New York has somewhat surpassed it.
What I like:
Little footprints traveling across the map (I think their Grandma's but that's just me - lol); sound effects - really great in this version of the game (people hurrying along, taxis and cars (who drives in NY?) honking, traffic; the mini games, which are a bit different in variety in this version; the little animations going on in each scene (look for them, they're there); and the history lesson we get on each location we visit - LOVE IT!
What I Didn't Like:
Still .... the HOG scenes (hidden object game) are still terribly overloaded with hundreds upon hundreds of other items that aren't needed - it's impossible to find the items on our list. By now, that issue should be getting better and NOT worse; how sensitive the "hint" button is - sometimes I click on it once but it registers 2 quick clicks and I lose a hint; AND that I have to earn hints at all - really, really dislike that in any game.
IF I do choose to purchase one of these games, right now it's between New York and Toronto, in that order. But, there are a few games left to play so that could change. I'll keep you posted.
I encourage everyone to try this game. Beginners might find it difficult but for family game night, it'd be a sure winner in my book.

New York City Adventures
I wasn't as big of a fan of this Big City Adventures, the graphics are just okay and the portrayal of New York City wasn't very favorable. You choose which family member you want to be, mother, father, sister, brother, grandma, or grandpa. A post card will tell you a little information about the destination you are heading to next. The hidden objects are list finds and there are coins available that aren't on the list that give you extra hints, extra time or extra points. If you don't use the coins you receive more points. Some of the areas can be zoomed into to search for more items. This game was just okay in my opinion, I liked London the best, enjoy!

Only if you like repetitious games
This is a long, repetitive hidden objects game. You and your family are visiting New York City, but rather than seeing lots of the sights in this city, you see the same dozen scenes over and over again. There are 90 rounds to the game, so that means that you see the same scene 7 or 8 times. Postcards pop up for each round giving you information about the site you're visiting. These are different each time. So there's lots of reading if you're in the mood. If not, there's a Continue button. There are different objects to find each time a scene is repeated. Most objects are fairly easy to find, but some are very tiny, or else they are the same color as the background, or else they are half off the screen or only partially shown. In between the hidden object scenes there are mini-games. These are also very repetitive. You work jigsaw puzzles over and over, changing pipes around so the water flows correctly, and various other fairly easy games. Over and over and over. For every 6 or 7 games you get ONE skip button. That means that if you have trouble with the mini-game ( not likely, but possible once or twice), and you don't have a skip button, you're stuck. You just have to tough it out and solve the game anyway. So bottom line, if you're looking for something mindless, where you do the same kinds of things over and over, this is your game. If you get bored with repeating the same things over and over, skip this one. I'm not recommending the game

Not what I espected
I thought this game would be similar to Big City Adventure in London, but this is strictly a HOG and with very easy puzzles. Disappointed!

Big City Adventure New York
I was very quickly bored with this game It is in my opinion the worse hidden objcts game I have tried.The music is OK but the hiddden obects screens are very much the same. The inmediate games are not very fun filled either.

Garbage Gone Wild
This one I didn't care for though I only played the time trial and not even the full 60 minutes, I just couldn't play any longer. Unlike other Big City Adventures that I have played seems this one had just a bunch of junk thrown all together and seemed very unorganized, for me I just wanted to get out of every level I went to. I enjoy all others I've played, more organized, easy on the eyes, relaxing... This one just made me feel aggravated. lol
