Golden Trails: The New Western Rush
Not for me.
This game was not exciting or interesting to me. I love many of the HO games but this was rather drab. I tried it for something different and it sure was...awfully different!

Challenging but fun
I love HOGs and have really been enjoying this one. The graphics are very good. I like the fact that there is a picture of what you must find instead of words. In some instances, you must check out another scene before you can finish a previous one. Not everything is easy to find, so you have to do a bit of thinking outside the box to find things. The mini-games aren't difficult, and I appreciate that. I am getting tired of mini-games that are more challenging than the game themselves. You can earn extra points by shooting outlaws and finding sheriff badges. The sheriff badges also unlock a secret mission. This is not a dark and spooky game as so many are. It is bright and cheerful, if investigating a bank robbery is cheerful. I can't say there is anything I really disliked about the game. To be honest, I was smiling throughout the entire game play, something I haven't done since playing Gardenscapes. If you really like HOGs, then this is the game for you.

HO game maybe for children
I did not think this was more geared for children. But then again may be too hard for them. Has voice over and good graphics. The problem to me is you get bored doing the same think from one area to the other. The HOS are not all that easy and you just do the same thing through the game. Good practice I guess. no real adventure.

I enjoyed this game
I, too, am tired of the spooky/chilling macabre hidden object games. A little goes a long way. As a result, I found this game refreshing. It was not easy, but not terribly challenging. Just a good enjoyable game.

Game is beautiful to sharpen the one's observation in any situation / surrounding more precisely and objectively.
Thanks for every body who make great effort in making of this creative fun.

A Complete Distraction!
If you want to take your mind off of everything else in your life, this game is for you!
I had played the second in this series of 3 (currently -- I soooo hope there will be more) first and I adored that one. This one is equally good. I'm looking forward to playing the third one, which I already own but am spreading the joy for awhile.
This is a HOG that doesn't leave you trying to figure out where to go next. You do get multiple scenes, but you're never backtracking ad nauseum, as with some other HOGs. You must get 150 badges to complete the game, but that is do-able. Just find as many as you can in a scene (check the information at the top of each scene as to how many are there) and shoot as many "gangsters" (I think they meant "bad guys" or "bandits") as you can during the arcade scenes at the end of each chapter. I'm a very non-violent person, and I wasn't sure I would be comfortable with this, but I found it completely non-disturbing.
I want to add that the music was great -- very "Spaghetti Western"ish and enjoyable. All in all, this is one of the best games I've played (and I've played at least a hundred), and I highly recommend it.

Western hidden object at its BEST
Within 10 minutes of demo, I was hooked!! This game is as good as it gets for hidden object, mini games etc . Its in my top 5. A must for western fans as well.

Most fun hidden object I've played in some time.
When I downloaded the trial I thought this would be pretty silly since it was a western. It turned out to very entertaining, challenging and different from the usual list and find games I've been playing. I recommend it for a change from the same old same old. Use your headphones. The dialogue is hilarious if only for the hokey accents.

Could have loved it, except for........
This game is set in a western setting, colorful characters, good music, nice colors for "out west". The h.o. scenes are quite challenging even tho they show pictures of what they want, items are very well hidden. Find all the sheriff's badges for bonus and shoot bandits that pop out on the screen for extra hints. Mini games in between levels are easy. Not too much talking by the hired sheriff, all other dialogue is read, there's not too much of that. The graphics are a little on the "cartoony" side, but the game is very cute, I thought "this is a great family game" (which as of late, there are not too many of those), THEN........at the saloon scene there is a female character with her dress so low it leaves nothing to the imagination. It's very inappropriate for kids. So much for sharing it with the kids! WHY did they feel the need to ruin the game by showing a half naked girl!? That totally was not called for and now I can't share this with the kids! I don't know if the other games in this series will have such scenes, I'm not sure if I want to buy them now, or not! I will not assault the kid's eyes with this and I know there are other players that feel the same way as I do. This was such a cute game up to there!!! I only recommend to older players who are not insulted by such unnecessary graphics.
