Steve the Sheriff: The Case of the Missing Thing
I assume this game is intended for kids. But nice to have a break from those intense, high resolution HOG for a while. The characters are cute, and the puzzles are fairly easy. Good game for beginner.

Such a cute adorable game for the young and young-at-hearts
Nothing new in this game, but it can be enjoyed equally by adults and children because it?s just so darn cute.
Storyline: When he?s not eating pie, Steve the lobster has to find out who pilfered a valuable painting from the town?s museum. He has to search all over the wonderfully hand-drawn and colorful undersea town to find the culprit. Each location has a HOS, a cigar and a mini-game. Searching the HOS is delightful ? everything is bright and large. The object list is alphabetical. Each HOS also has a bubbling area which requires special attention (i.e., special objects not in the list). Mini-games are varied, and are not very difficult.
Dialogue is light and humorous. There are 36 environments to explore, with no backtracking. There?s a really cute bonus game available (chariot racing) once you?ve completed the game, provided you found all 36 cigars. [You can go back if you miss any.] You can play the bonus game as long as you want. Whether you?re a kid-at-heart or have the grandchildren to entertain, if you?re looking for a light-hearted fun game you all can enjoy, give this one a try.
It?s been 3 years to get the sequel out. The ending did promise one! Don't recall how long it was because it was so fun I didn't keep track.

Little slow for me
This game is cute, but I need something a little more challenging. I got bored after about 20 minutes of play. Animations are cute. Good game to play with grandkids!

Good Clean Fun
NO monsters, evil kidnappers, vampires etc. Just a cute relaxing HO game. This game is really more of a child's level of play and there's no shooting, killing or racing involved :)
I just found it fun. This game is really just a HO game, but I found it entertaining. Steve's conversations at the dinner table, with his wife are amusing.( He'd never solve a crime without her.) It's equally nice that there is no awful voice over, just some jazzy music in the background. Childish voice overs could have really made the game annoying. I would recommend this only if you don't want a challenging game. Use a free game token and share it with your kids.

Nicely drawn straight HOG game. Maybe I've been spoiled by all the later IHOG and adventure HOG games, but I quickly tired of this. Mini-games were way too easy as well. But this would probably a nice way to spend some time with a child so it isn't all bad. Just not for me.

After 2-3 cycles of the family dinner followed by a new location I found it tedious and almost annoying. The HO's were tricky but after a while even that got old. I had to force myself to complete the game

Worst game ever
This has got to be the worst game ever unless you are a three-year old kid. The story is dumb, the settings are dumb, game play is awful.
