Antique Road Trip USA
Makes Me Want To Hit The Road!
I have come to love hidden object games, but I really don't like the mystery or spirit world ones. It's refreshing to come across a HOG that doesn't focus on the same thing 90% of the other games do. So, about Antique Road Trip, I found the story good and somewhat plausible. A newlywed couple have opened an antique shop and must fill it with merchandise. They do this by going all over the country to help friends with tasks to earn money (this is where the hidden object scenes come in) then you use the money to outfit their store, I really liked that part. Once the store is completely outfitted the game is basically over, however, I found you can keep playing scenes and earning money but it really doesn't do you any good as far as the story goes. I'm really looking forward to playing Antique Road Trip 2.

Family-Friendly Hidden Object Game
Finally got around to playing this game and I have to say, what a pleasant surprise this is. It's a very nice change-of-pace from all those dark and gloomy HOGs I've been playing lately. I like the music even though country is not generally my thing; I've always had a softspot for bluegrass and the banjo, though.
I like the fact that you can take a break from the HOG scenes and play decorate-the-store for a while. I've been happily buying multiple versions of items and constantly rearranging my store to suit my taste. The mini-games are fun ones - jigsaw puzzles, pick out the matching/dissimilar items, find 25 of this or that - no great strain on the brain or stress-inducing in anyway.
This is a great game to play when you're in the mood for a hidden object game but you don't want to commit to, or have time for, immersing yourself into a whole hidden object-puzzle-adventure (HOPA) game. It's just as much fun if you play for a short or long amount of time.

Good game, nice change from creepy games.
I was looking for a game that didn't involve monsters or zombies, and this was a nice change. The game is not overly challenging, but the graphics are good. Decorating the shop was a cute diversion as well. If you are looking for a pleasant diversion for an afternoon, this game is for you.

Just Okay, nothing special.
To me, this game was truly just Okay. After purchasing all the items, and going to all the places, the game just keeps going. There is no end. You don't have a sense of accomplishment because there is no end and it quickly becomes boring. As I said, this game was just "okay".

Enjoyable but not Exciting
This game I found to be a change of pace from standard hidden object games and was enjoyable to play without being really exciting. The graphics were quite good and clear and the dialogue was just enough without being over done. The plot was that a young couple scoured America helping people in and endeavour to sell antiques etc to make money to stock their own shop. The puzzles were pretty straightforward but some of the hidden objects had cryptic clues which made them pretty tricky, others were no problem. Not a bad game and quite interesting - worth the money.

A Fun Way to Spend Time
I really like this game. The music is by far the best background music for a HOS I have heard. It keeps you relaxed and happy. The idea is simple, you must complete tasks to help build up your Antique store. The puzzles range from HOS to puzzles to fix the mistakes and even matching. It is challenging without being crazy. My only complaint is that sometimes, in the HOS, two things could be the answer.
The visuals are a bit rough, but not too bad. This is just a really laid back, fun game that anyone can play and everyone will enjoy. My 4 and 5 year old daughters even play and enjoy it!

Good and Bad
A good concept
But gets boring after three quarters of the way through the game.
There is no game instructions on how you are progressing through the game.
When you have collected your Antiques you get to the states of America.
What am I surpose to collect from the 6 items shown ?

Take a Trip
I love this game. It's challenging at times and that's good. Must keep the brain working. Putting together an Antique Shop is very fun. I must get the next one and see if that is just as fun.

Let's Hit the Road
I loved this game. I enjoyed decorating the antique store. Enjoyed hidden object scenes from different parts of the country. I also liked the post-game play: finding all the hidden objects in a scene.
