Eternal Eternity Challenge
Not my favorite game but at the end of each chapter the humor was delightful! The Hero/Heroine made some perfect quips about the historical figure who was helped or saved. The game isn't easy it is : anytime it says "Adventure" I know there will be things that I wont think to look for! so athe walkthrough is helpful! I think the best humor came in the credits as each historical figure get a bit roasted and it is quite funny!
I recomend this game as good fun!

Overall, just an okay game...
I have only completed the demo on easy mode (There are 2 modes...easy and classic), and I had to use the walk through in the Mayan Chapter, as previously mentioned. This game makes you think, and you really must pay attention to every detail or you will easily miss info and be lost. At some points you will probably be lost anyway, as some things are not really explained well. It takes a bit of getting used to, to figure out the mechanics of this game, and how to play it.
The graphics are 3D and are okay, but not the best I've seen. The music is calming, and unobtrusive. The other sound FX can get annoying...like the sound of an incorrect mouse click. The storyline, characters, and traveling through time is mildly interesting.
Some of the inventory items you must find in a scene are only pieces of a larger item that must be combined, and some are blended very well. Some of the HO in the HOS are VERY TINY!! You must search every inch of each scene with your mouse, or you will miss something, and there really isn't that much to find in each scene. The good news is that the hints recharge quickly, there is no walking around...only "teleporting", and it tells you when the scene is complete.
The chapters are short. In the hour demo, I completed Chapter 5 of 14, and that's with having to leave the game to consult the walk through....So I'm guessing just over 2 hrs to 2 1/2 hrs to complete the game. I will not be purchasing this game, as it didn't really pique my interest enough, and I don't see myself replaying it. I feel it is only worth the DD price, and that's only if you find it interesting enough for your taste. Remember, always try before you buy!

Not My Kind of HOG
This may be a great game for those who are big Hidden Object fans. I'm more into "here's what to look for, now find it" than scene-switching, etc. If you're like me and just want to relax a little with hidden objects, this may not be for you. If you like greater challenges and "you figure it all out" kinds of HOGs, give it a try with the demo.

Good practice for HOS fans. Not and real story just go from one area to another looking for stuff.

Eternity needs some work
I really did like the idea behind the story. It should have been in 2 games because there wasjust too many eras and not enough story. It didn't seem too well thought out, trying to cram to many characters in.
I like to see it reworked and a little more substance.

Not a lot of fun
I have to admit, the graphics and sound were quite good.
But that's where the enjoyment ended for me. I have played games where you need to find elements in more than one scene but in this game it really wasn't fun. Help wasn't much help in the way of guidance ....
Maybe I was just too tired when I started the demo but this game was not too enjoyable. It was borderline boring.

A real mixed bag.
A few aspects of this game were fun but other aspects were terrible and that far outweighed the good for me. A few places just had you clicking on everything to try to guess where something was supposed to go...not a good time for me.

From here to eternity no thanks
I love HOG but I this is a Pig as far as I am concerned. I have tried the demo in two stages, and still could not manage the full hour. Which I think speaks for its self. Everybody has different tastes this is not to mine. Hope it helps.

everything about this was stiff and predictable. I fell asleep a few times, just out of boredom. I do not recommend this game, but I know others might enjoy what I do not, so try it, but if you get bored, trust me, it does not get better. It just plods doing the same thing in different locales.
