Mystery Case Files: Huntsville ?
This game has its fans, but I'm not one of them. It's basically a vision test. One HO after another. The story gets completely lost. You operate on a timer, and the time you're allotted is so minimal that I had to play the same section multiple times to get ahead. The developers were so sloppy, they didn't even take the time to spell the items correctly.
I finally got smart, and started using this game as a time-filler when I have a few minutes between tasks. That way the games I actually enjoy will still be there when I have more time to really relax. One day, in the distant future, I may finish this one. But I may die of old age first.

Knowing that this was a timed game, I flew through this as fast as I could. Took me 4hr 13 min to complete the game. Only twice did I fail to complete a level in time. That was because I had the tv on and was distracted.
I really enjoyed this game. The items are easy to locate for one. It's building up the speed to advance to the next level that you need to work on.
The storyline is a little odd, but I wasn't paying much attention to it. I had one goal in mind and that was my time. If you want a fast paced game, then this is the one for you.

OMG, it's been so long when it first out. I played this one before and never leave any review.
I love it! The HOG and puzzles are good. Classic yet difficult (I think).
So thanks BFG for making this awesome series. All of them are my favorite games I ever played (along with another games). Good job!

Not for me.
Straight HO's. Back to back. That's it. And they're not very good at that.

Favorite Hidden Object Series
I love all of the MCF games, and this early entry was done really well. I really liked the art they used, and the theme is light and humorous.

Bigfish did not reveal that there are time limits to this game, a feature that renders it unfun and almost unplayable. My reason for playing games is to relax, so I would not buy a game with time limits. Objects are very hard to find as well. Decidedly an unfun game.

Mystery Case Files is one of the leading series in the HOG genre, and this is one of the games that shows why. The graphics and design of levels in this game is on par with some bigger, more recent additions to the genre, and the soundtrack and ambience really add to the atmosphere. As far as atmosphere goes, I felt a little let down. Most of the time I was too busy in the Hidden Object scenes to admire the design of the game.
The learning curve in this game is good and some of the later levels were a bit challenging.
Overall, an oldie but a goodie. 4/5

This is a fun HOG and it was my first HOG.
I love this HOG. I wish there were more like this and the 2nd one Mystery Case Files: Prime Suspect. In fact I liked Prime Suspect the best because I like the puzzles in between better that the puzzles on Huntsville. I will soon be 70 y/o and I like these games to keep my mind alert and healthy. I noticied a difference as soon as I started playing them.
Like I said I do so love these games but, I DO NOT like the games that you have to have a strategy sheet or should I say sheets in your left hand and try and figure it out and play with your right hand. NO FUN for me!
Oh, I also liked Golden Trails 1 and 2. If you know of any other games like these that are fun and can be played without a strategy guide please let me know. I keep looking but no luck. They are all just to complicated if they have a strategy guide with them.
