Unsolved Mystery Club: Amelia Earhart
Love this game
Ok, I'm really "late" in posting this review but I just found the game a few days ago. I love this game. I love good IHOGs and this game is full of them plus having to learn to fly Amelia's plane is fun but challenging as well. I'm quite tired of the cluttered, dark, sinister games although I've played many. This is more my type of game (like Amazing Heists, Vacation Adventures, and Golden Trails). I am a huge fan of all HOG games and enjoy some not too difficult IHOGs as well and good adventure games. I learned alot about Amelia in the newsreels and I'm playing slowly so I can enjoy it as long as possible. I highly recommend this game as it's relaxing but a challenge in a non-difficult way.

a real life mystery!
this game was both entertaining & educational! There were a lot of facts that this game provided that I'd never heard before! Very intriguing!

Interesting History, Varied Game Play
The first thing every reviewer wants you to know is "it's short". They're right - but she disappeared at 39 -- and they managed to make a 5 chapter game out of that short life!
I actually liked the length for the topic - every section of Amelia's life got mentioned, but not with excruciating or boring detail. It's short and to the point. To make the game longer there is a flight game, and a theory section (admittedly too easy - you can see the clues).
I loved seeing the news reels of her parade in New York and hearing her actual voice - so the fact the game is on the easy side didn't bother me - this was less of a game and more on an "experience" - a living history you could play with.
I didn't have any trouble seeing the HOS. Scenese were clear and it was very easy to figure out what you needed to do. I actually like the flying game and wish there was more of that.
So - if you want to know the life story of Amelia Earhart and the prominent theories of what happened to her - along with some neat trivia (she was a nurses aid in WWI) you'll like this. If you need a game that challenges your mind and makes you think hard, or that lasts longer than an everlasting gobstopper -- this one is not for you.

Very nice DD
This is a wonderful DD game with one major caveat, you have to like Amelia Earhart. Visuals are nice, sounds are good, the flight school could go or be better handed.

Great for AE Mystery buffs
Loved the game, esp the theories on what happened. Good if you are into AE's disappearance. VERY short game. Flying school was fun.

I really enjoyed this. A lot of history, went through flight school and the scenes were good. The filmreels were awesome and overall just a great game.

I loved learning about Amelia in this format. The graphics weren't as good as some games and I hated the flight school but otherwise I found it an excellent experience.
I didn't mind that it was rather short, because it told the story well--I prefer that to going on and on just to be longer.

Searching for Amelia
PLUS = Interesting game if you like history. I was fascinated by the information on Amelia Earhart, particularly the film clips of her where she talked about her travels and her passion for flying.
MINUS = The game seemed to be very short and it is not a game that I am drawn back to replay.
