GOOD ADVENTURE STORY, WOULD BE GREAT BEGINNER'S GAME
BASED ON COMPLETED GAME ON EXPERT LEVEL
I enjoyed this game. I thought it had a really cool story with a strong female heroine and good ending. Even on the expert level, it did give lots of instructions which I think would be great for beginners. It had a set formula per chapter which will also aid people new to gaming. I liked the way that I had to find the pieces of objects needed within the scenes, that was new to me. There are lots and lots of HOS (which annoyed some) but to a newbie, may be good practice. The HOS were easy, but part of the story as were the games. The way the game was structured, everything I did revolved around the story and reaching my end result which I think made the story more believable. I agree with the reviewers who say it was too easy BUT if you are a beginner or want a casual game with LOTS of HOS and a good story, I think you will like this one.
Music was dramatic and old-fashioned like a spy thriller movie
Graphics were generally good
Game flowed logically
Many different types of things to do in each chapter
The main character actually tells you when you have nothing else to do in a scene
Some puzzles were new to me
The story is arranged in chapters
Each part of the object you need to find is listed
Nothing potentially offensive that I could see
Strong, athletic, independent heroine
The story was excellent
For me, too many HOS
Games/HOS too easy
Dressing the character at the beginning of each chapter
BOTTOM LINE; This exciting story, laced with LOTS of HOS would be a great beginner's game or a casual gamer's enjoyable afternoon.

Hard to classify
Based on completed game in "casual" mode. This is an older, different kind of HO game. You search each scene for tasks to solve. Each successfully found task has a drop down chain of images of things to find in the scene. Most scenes also have a number of traditional HO games with lists of things to find. Some of main scenes are very interactive, some not. In the easy mode there are lots of sparkles. I usually don't like these, but in many instances I would not have been able to find the tasks without them. For each thing you have to find, you have to be very exact with the curser.
The game has good looking cartoon graphics and has some quirky HOs where you need to eliminate characters based on their characteristics. There are a number of safes to crack and you need to solve a puzzle to do so. All the games are very easy, a plus for me. The story, which involves the kidnapping of a child, is mostly light and entertaining. There is no doubt about the outcome from the first scene.
My low rating is based on some technical issues I had late in the game. I had to go to the forum twice - once I found a fix, the other time I did not and had to start over with a different profile. Also, there was one HO scene repeated verbatim at the beginning and end of the game. What's up with that? The play is fun - I wouldn't dare try it in advanced mode! I will recommend the game for people who want an easy HO game with a few challenges. Hopefully the technical issues have been resolved (I bought this game a long time ago), and you have good time.

There are entirely too many HOS in this games. Each chapter is divided into several HOS (with items scattered within a confined space) and find the area where items are needed to progress. When you do find the area, then you must find the random items on the screen. I can handle some of that, but it just kept coming and coming and coming. I really did enjoy the part of the game when you had to eliminate the people based on the clues. Overall, if you enjoy constant hidden object scenes, then you will probably enjoy this game. Otherwise, take a pass on this one.

Don't Waste Your Money
The hidden objects were easy to find becuase the hand would change to a grabbing hand when you came across an object. It was too easy. There was no challange to the HOS. Opening the safes required minimal thought processes. I regret spending my money on this.
