Nora Roberts Vision in White
2.5 - Straight HOG with a couple of puzzles - pros and cons list
As I am such a fan of dream day series I decided to buy this game as I love weddings and am a romantic. It has voiceovers and a story, the length of the game was OK (standard SE) but it fell so short of the dream day series for me.
-Choice of playing game timed or untimed. You have a set amount of time for the whole chapter.
-Mostly non junk piles/very cluttered scenes
-Finding letters ? v.o.w.s in each scene which earns you a hint
-Most items to find were tiny, I didn?t mind a couple in each scene but there were loads.
-Also items were really well blended, a lot of white on white
-Repeating of HO scenes
-Puzzles weren?t good and they kept repeating the few they had (take photo, make cake and flower arrangements and avoid people to get to an exit)
-limited amount of hints if you run out, you are stuck!
If you are an avid HO fan, and romantic with good eyesight then I recommend it to you. But no walkthrough if you are stuck with finding items and no way to get more hints is annoying.

Not my Favourite Game
I am a Nora Roberts fan and have read the book of this game and enjoyed the book far more than the game. Too many hidden object scenes in this game, with most of the objects being really difficult to find. I used up my hints quite quickly. I would have preferred more cake decorating and photography options and less emphasis on the hidden object scenes. The difficulty of the HOS took most of the fun out of it for me. Even the VOWS letters were hard to find. Too much work - not enough fun. I don't like this game much.

Items are too small to see and too repetitive.

I love Nora Roberts and have read every book she's written and kept a few "series" including this one. Yes, the game was on point with the book and seeing the characters instead of imaging them - well, they were just as I had imagined. That's as far as it goes for me. I intensely dislike games where you have to earn hints or have very limited hints, especially when your HOGs are so tiny you really do need a magnifying glass to find almost every item - and I have "old" eyes (smile). That totally spoils the game for me every time. If you are going to develop a game with HOGs that are so miniscule and mish mashy that you can't find them at least have a rechargeable hint button. Love you, Nora, hate the game. Sorry, another rarity for this Glam-ma but she says run for the hills on this one.
