Golden Trails: The New Western Rush
I enjoyed this game!
Fairly straight HOG but there is a little interaction between scenes. Not quite what I would call an IHOG but some others might.
Graphics were sharp and clear. I liked the artwork.
I found the objects were well hidden but in plain site and were appropriate to the scene.
Not sure if there is a penalty for over clicking as I never ran into it.
Plenty of bonuses including extra hints and points for quick finds, no hint use and, oddly enough, for finishing continuous scenes without leaving the game.
The mini games in between were the only negative for me as they were extremely repetitive and insanely easy. But they were very short and quick so not a bother.
The random shooting, (bad guys pop up) during the HOG scenes, which adds extra hints, is slightly annoying but easily ignored if it bothers you.
The music was repetitive but I turned it down low and it wasn't distracting.
The game, along with the bonus scenes, took me a little over four hours but I relaxed and took my time.
The replay value may be quite good for some as there are many different trophies and achievements to go for.
After completing the game and finding enough hidden sheriff badges it also unlocks an unlimited mode.
This has all the extras of a CE including wallpaper, soundtracks, walkthrough and background construction.
On the whole I found this a fun game with nicely challenging hidden objects.
As a side note I must add:
I do think it's funny that the story starts out with a old time sheriff needing a vacation and his boss sending him off.... lol ...did they get vacation days back then???

This is a fun, easy going game. You will find hidden objects and some of those objects are used to find others. In addition, there are sheriff badges to find and stolen objects to recover. These items are used to win trophies. The graphics are colorful and some of the hidden objects are hard to spot, but you have many chances to gain hints. You gain hints by shooting outlaws which pop up here and there on the screen. The music is fun and a bit addicting.

I especially enjoyed shooting the random bandits that show up and finding the tin can in each scene, two additional elements besides the usual seek and find. Overall, this game kept my attention and interest, striving to get complete. This is one that you can replay and not be bored.
Truly a lot of fun for a straight HOG.

Great variety of mini games. I like the fact that there are pictures of the hidden objects, not just a word list.

Great old western who dunnit
A great old western who dunnit with an over worked sheriff sent on holidays to a quiet little town only to find he has landed head long into a bank robbery and is obligated to find the culprits. Great game with loads of bonuses for not using hints, consecutive correct hits, finding 10 or more items in a minute etc. Extra hints can be earned by shooting randomly appearing bandits and extra bonus for shooting every five. The graphics are crystal clear and well defined and colourful and the dialogue with some voice overs and some reading making it an interesting, authentic and realistic adventure. The mini games, although much of a muchness were good and not that time consuming and relatively simple. The hidden objects were very clear and some more hidden than others. A number of them needed extra work to find and others needen to be found at another location but all were a pleasure to look for in the clear and colourful surroundings. A great game coupled with hidden objects, puzzles and glorious life-like western surroubdings. Go buy it I did.

Lots of Fun
Great Game. Lots of game play. After you finish the regular game, you have a secret mission and then free play. You also get to shoot the outlaws that occasionally pop in and pop out of a scene. Lots of hidden object scenes - and lots of fun!

Fun fun fun!!
I am not a straight HO game fan normally but, for some reason, I found this game to be so fun, I played it twice in a row! The characters are great, the story is good, the locations are good -- I'm not sure why this is so much more fun than most pure HO games, but it really is. Unlike some others, I enjoyed the bandits popping up in the scenes.... I also liked that you had two different extras to find (marshall's badges and stolen items). There were some mini-games (the same ones) between chapters -- and the one where you shoot the banditos was great fun.
My only gripe with the game is that it was too short! But because it was so fun, I got twice the play out of it anyway -- and you also get unlimited mode once you get 50K in points.... then you can try for all the trophies in the game (another plus).
All in all, a very enjoyable game!

I really liked this game!
I liked the story line and the graphics were excellent. I thought the H.O. scenes were a bit more challenging than usual. The whole game was a fun change from the norm! I just thought it was too short.
