Nat Geo Adventure: Ghost Fleet
Great undersea adventure
I loved everything about the game. It was historically informative, used cool undersea equipment and had great visuals. The instructions and flow of the game were clear. Best of all was the realistic, gripping story. I literally couldn't stop playing toward the end! One of my all time favorites.

a different type of HO game
You kind of go all over the water finding clues and HOS. Some are easy and some are not. A different kind of game in that you are not a detective looking for the bad demon or person. It is just a fun enjoyable game for the day.

Great Great Nat Geo Adventure
This is one of the best hidden object games I played in the last 5 years. Fun,tricky,easy at times,hard at other times. Puzzles were great. This is one game that I would pay full price if I had to. Good game.

Teen son says cool underwater hidden object game.
Felt like I was really underwater and diving. Great visuals! Some items were very difficult to find.

Game apparently designed for children
I will qualify this review by letting you know that this review is based on the 1 hr preview. I was interested in this game because it sounded similar to a great game I have for my Wii console called Endless Ocean: Blue World. Unlike that game, however, the graphics in this game (with the exception of the fish) were grainy and rather primitive. I played in normal mode and the instructions were so simplistic they drove me crazy. Perhaps in expert mode that irritation would not have been present.
I did like using sonar to find a dive site if the irritating voiceover help had been absent. Some of the hidden object items were misnamed - a ship's wheel is not a rudder - and were drawn so crudely it was difficult to tell what some of them even were. The minigames were of the simplistic jigsaw puzzle or find the matching tiles type with the exception of the photograph the target fish minigame which was fun.
Although you are given a rudimentary story (find your missing father), the game appears to be nothing more than HOS with a few minipuzzles. There were no animated cut scenes or any attempt at immersing you into the story so someone like me that prefers HO adventure games to purely HO games became quickly bored.
I would recommend this game for the 8 -10 year old age group but not adults.
