Antiques Roadshow ?
I really enjoyed the game until it got to the decoder area. I really struggled with figuring out what letters belonged and finally gave up. Tough stuff like this should have a 'skip' option. Not everyone can process that stuff. Give me more digging and finding objects. I agree that some were very small and others almost impossible to locate, even with hints. Don't know if I will play anymore since I can't decode his msg. Sorry guys, this game burnt me out.

Need a magnifying glass
Decent graphics, an interesting storyline, and an entertaining tie-in to the TV show are not enough to keep this game from being practically unplayable. I've never seen them use a magnifying glass on the TV show, but that's what you'll need to find most of these hidden objects. Oddly, the hidden objects are miniaturized in proportion to the other objects in the scenes, and most of the object will be hidden behind something. So I ended up clicking on bits and pieces of things to find most of the objects. But clicking at random is not the point of a hidden object game. Definitely preview this game before buying.

Nice clean cut game with a great story.The graphics were good but the hidden objects were a bit small.Being one who dislikes mini-games I found the ones in this game fun and very different than what I have seen in other games.They were all easy enough to accomplish without having to skip through them.The button mini-game was the best,have never seen such a game before.

Not one of the best
The ladder in the first HOG scene was VERY hard to find
Someone that did the Beta said they never found it!! LOL. I did eventually find it after another fishie helped. Then I was told that I would not get a bonus for that scene as I had taken too long
It was then hard to find the way out after finishing the attic, you have to go way down to the bottom of the screen to exit. I then had to use a sledgehammer to get into the next scene. How can people do that to other peoples property?? , to meet another junkpile! Lasted 16 minutes in total, sorry if some people think that this was not long enough to form a review on the game. BELIEVE ME it was
Music repetitive, I really wanted to get further to see the "roadshow" but........
Guess what??? NO buy for me

I agree with the others on here, some of the objects are overly difficult to find. Such as the ladder in scene 1, I used the "Hint" button twice, and click so much in that area that I got a penalty & it still took a few minutes. Seems like a fault in their game design. The mini games were okay. The roadshow part was disappointing. I wish they had an antiques roadshow game where you got to try to appraise things, initially I thought that's what this game was, but thought I'd try it out anyways. Not worth paying for in my opinion.

omg horrible game! most things are small in the hidden objects games so you have to use hints alot. i got stuck on the decoding mini game and there is no skip!! not fun at all...not what i was expecting

The game started out okay (although sort of boring) but when I reached the scene where you have to find a chest next to the ladder it was impossible to find even after I followed the directions in the walkthrough and clicked every available spot. And since it was a bonus object, there was no hint. Not worth the money even if it had been free!

Good game, if you have excellant eyesight
I liked the game, as I like antiques, but as an older player, I think the items were to small. It was a challenge, for sure, but I didnt finish the trial, because most of the items were to small for my eyes to see. Like I said, I liked it and would recomend it if you have good eyes.

I LIKE IT!!!
I played the trial version of this at another site but because I am a member here came here to buy it!
It can be frustrating with some very tiny and well hidden objects and some of the mini games are challenging. Those are the things that made it fun for me though. It took me a couple minutes to figure out the decoder but I did.
I really enjoyed the antique aspect of this. You can learn from this.
This may not be everyones cup of tea but give it a shot! You may be surprised!

Dull And Boring Just Like The Show
After playing Jane Croft: The BakerSt. Murder, I hoped to never find a hidden object game worse than that, but I found it right here!
The game has some good music. Probably the only highight of the game.
Graphically, the Hidden Object Scenes were clear.
Un-installing the game.
In the intro, the graphics were average though. They were cartoony and not modern at all.
The game is a real bore. It was not fun to play at all and I couldn't wait to un-install it!
The storyline is very boring. Intro doesn't appeal to me and it really failed to set the mark for the game.
Hidden Objects were really hard to find. I got so frustrated that I just quit!
The hint takes too long to recharge.
Overall, I really hated this game. The title sums itup: An Antique. It should be pulled off this site before more people suffer. Could only bear 5 minutes.
