Hidden Expedition: The Eternal Emperor 3.7 5 9 9
GOOSEBUMPS AND CHILLS--I LOVED IT!!! I had to earn those goosebumps though, this game keeps you busy and on the edge of your seat. You are instructed to protect archeologists as they enter the tomb of an ancient leader. It was fun and challenging, two qualities ever present in my favorite game developers' games. Of course, the visuals and graphics are outstanding, but the real beauty to the game is the storyline and how the music compliments it. I actually felt like I was in China. EIPIX writers have a way of letting you identify with it's characters and 'get involved.' No one tops their opening credits which are spectacular. The surprise ending to the demo left me with my goosebumps and wanting to know how the H.E.L.P. agents get out of this one. An automatic buy for me, CE or SE, you can't go wrong with this one. Thanks, Mia. :) September 30, 2016
great game this is such a beautiful eye candy game the graphics are great. i must confess i had a rough time with a lot of the puzzles. the story kept me going for more and the setting of the game was awesome. the fact cards taught me a bit as i live under a rock. it was very interesting reading them.try the demo i say and enjoy..... October 5, 2016
Very good game Found this game exellent and fun to play. Info about ancient China also great. To the end detailed challenges, which is often not the case. October 7, 2016
I'm Focusing My Review On This Fascinating Emperor As you may already know, I wasn't very impressed with this edition of Hidden Expedition when I first played the Collector's Edition. Then my curious side emerged and I began to search for more information on the Emperor, and he really is an interesting and important figure. I thought I would share 10 facts that I found to be the most interesting, if you're not interested just skip this paragraph to get to my review of the game itself. #1-Qin Shi Huang became the king of the state of Qin at the ripe old age of 13 (and he accomplished this feat without a cellphone, can you believe it!) His real name was actually Ying Zheng. #2-Throughout China it was widely believed that the Emperor was illegitimate and his mother Zhao Ji was already pregnant when she married Yiren. Historians now theorize that this story was fabricated by Chinese Scholars to defame the Emperor, 2 fold because not only would that have made him an illegitimate child, but it would also mean that he was the son of a merchant and not of royal descent. #3-The young Emperor was responsible for the unification of China when he conquered the remaining 6 kingdoms. For the first time in history, China was a united centralized state. (again without the use of a smartphone!) #4-After he conquered the 6 other kingdoms Ying Zheng declared himself Qin Shi Huang. Translated, Qin means "of Qin" Shi means "first" and Huangdi was a new term meaning Emperor. (so technically he was responsible for a new word as well) #5-To avoid political chaos after the unification, the Emperor unified the Chinese Script. #6-The Great Wall of China was then constructed to keep the states safe. The famous wall actually connected various existing state walls. #7-The Emperor was also responsible for the construction of the Lingqu Canal and the Sichuan Dujiangyan irrigation system. Along with the Great Wall, these three constructions are considered to be great feats of ancient Chinese engineering. #8-Throughout most of Chinese history, the first Emperor of Qin (there were only 2 Emperors of Qin) was considered to be unpopular and inhumane. This opinion didn't change much until the late 19th century. Now it is believed that because the Emperor ordered books burned and had over 400 scholars executed, Confucian Scholars began to portray their ruler as a brutal tyrant. #9-I'm almost finished I promise but the good stuff centers around the tomb! He was afraid of death and became obsessed with finding the elixir of life to become immortal. #10-His tomb took 700,000 men 38 years to construct! The Emperor's mausoleum was larger than any city in the entire world at the time, and was intended to be paradise. The Emperor's tomb is protected by about 6,000 of the famous life sized Terracotta Army of Warriors, among the army are Chariots and 40,000 real bronze weapons! Their mission, was and is, to protect the Emperor in the afterlife from evil spirits. After all these accomplishments, the first Emperor of Qin trusted his alchemists who created his "elixir of immortality" Ironically, the Emperor died during his visit to Eastern China after swallowing the mercury pills they created to give him eternal life. See I told you he was a fascinating person, so on to the review.... I have played thousands of games and lately I've been left to ponder an important question. Am I getting bored with these games or are they getting lame? The answer I can assure you is that I'm not bored playing a GOOD game, an interesting game. There have been some real duds lately by some of the top ranking series titles, because, in my opinion, the devs are working at lightning speed to release one game after another. I get it, I'm a business owner, and the bottom line is net profit, as long as a series is selling like hotcakes, you keep offering them until they aren't. Here's another thing I realized lately, the Lesser Known series (the one's who aren't working at breakneck speeds) are putting out REALLY GOOD games that are interesting and fun, such as Shadowplay and Bridge To Another World. Your mission, should you decide to accept, is to babysit a really annoying character! H.E.L.P. will spare no expense to keep Professor Huang Son Jiang and his colleague Anna Chan happy, safe and secure. You will be expected to solve all of the intricate puzzles and locks located throughout the Emperor's Tomb, unassisted, while everyone rushes you from behind. The Tomb is full of Mercury and booby traps (that's latin for you're going to get killed by something you'll never see coming, yet they all seem to go off in front of you?) All's going well, then Sam gets hurt AGAIN, seriously, I think he does it on purpose to get promotions. Then out of nowhere, BAM, the unthinkable happens, bet you didn't see that one coming? Of course you saw that one coming because it's the same story, just with different characters! No agent would be complete without lugging around a huge H.E.L.P Box. It's a good thing I lugged this 40 pound box down the mine with me because believe it or not, there are actually Fact Cards hidden in the Emperor's Tomb! Can you believe it? This tomb has been closed for thousands of years! Surely this is Ancient Alien work, how is that possible? With the Collector's Edition version, there are also 40 Hidden Signs and 22 Achievements to earn. The Hidden Object Scenes are always the same in the HE series. That's not necessarily a bad thing, at least they are familiar. There are the typical Silhouetted Shape Finds that are usually presented in at least a couple of phases where once you find all the items, another set of shapes is presented and then a third set with a final object to find. There are also Interactive List finds and finding Keywords in a story being told. Each HOP has a Morphing Object available. The Mini Games are the reason I continued the demo, they aren't bad at all and most are doable on the first attempt. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Move levers until all of the arrows are in the green zone. 2) Complete the circle by selecting and dragging the animal shapes to the correct position. 3) Create paths for the dragons heads to fall onto it's matching body by using directional arrows to move rows of blocks below them. 4) Move the pieces to the center of the board to form a complete symbol, pieces must be selected in the correct order. 5) Arrange bells from the largest to the smallest animals shown on the bells. 6) Select the arrows to move the figurine to the yin-yang which stops whenever it encounters an obstacle. 7) Move the coins to the correct side of the board based on color, select arrows to select pairs of coins at a time. 8) Create a path for the mercury to flow from the pearl to the empty circle in a labyrinth. The Collector's Edition has 17 replayable Puzzles, 15 replayable HOP's, 8 Concept Art pictures, 8 Wallpapers, 9 Music Soundtracks, a Souvenir Room, 40 Hidden Signs, 11 Videos, 22 Achievements, 15 Morphing Objects within the HOP's, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

ENTER EMPEROR QIN?S TOMB IN THIS LATEST HIDDEN EXPEDITION In this tenth game in the Hidden Expedition series, the Eternal Emperor, we find ourselves dealing with the over-zealous, power hungry descendent of China?s first Emperor ?Qin Shi Huang. You embark on this latest adventure at the unearthed archeological site of Emperor Qin?s tomb led by Professor Huang Son Jiang and his assistant Anna Chan. This is a memorable day for you and Sam as you join in the festivities to celebrate the opening of the tomb. Your job is to run interference against any booby traps or other obstacles that you might encounter and they are everywhere. Everything about the game is fairly much signature of this developer with excellent graphics to great sound effects and voice overs. The game offers a custom setting for those of you who prefer to set up your gameplay options. There is a transporter type map but I don?t care for the way it opens in this game. Whenever I select the map there is a delay as it is part of the HELP toolkit. For some reason the map seemed a bit clunky. The HOPS were excellent and varied with some being multi-level. There even seemed to be a bit more creativity in a few of the HOPS which keeps things interesting. The puzzles or mini-games were a bit too easy and I only found one to be a bit challenging during the demo but that was due to the instructions. Later in the game there were some more difficult puzzles that were fun to solve. What I loved about the game is the storyline that held my attention. What I disliked about the game is the obnoxious professor who kept referring to me as a ?little carp.? Talk about a demeaning attitude ? this guy had it in spades! The CE has all the regular things I like in games from this development team with collectibles, morphing objects, achievements, and all the other typical fluff. The Hidden Expedition series is one I love and these games were among the first HOPA games I ever played. I own each game in the series and always eagerly await each new game to see what is next. The Eternal Emperor is an excellent addition to the series but falls short of being my favorite and can?t compare to the two set in the Smithsonian. I don't know but recently games from this top-tier developer just seem to be released at lightning speed and in many instances are very cookie-cutter. I gave the CE a 5-Star review but am knocking off a star because I feel the game could have better had it not been so predictable. I did purchase the game but please try the demo to see if The Eternal Emperor is a game you will enjoy as well. September 30, 2016
Another Hit by Eipix This is posted after playing the entire game. I love the Hidden Expedition series and own them all. While Emperor follows the basic theme of the others, I found it lacking somewhat from the previous ones. This could be perhaps, because I'm not really into the far east history as I have been the other areas explored by this series. It just wasn't as much fun as the others. The graphics, music, and sound including voice overs were excellent. Colors were bright, colorful and clear, except when they weren't suppose to be. I found the Hidden Object scenes very good. The games were varied from silhouette to list to interactive. Great mix and the items were well hidden. Had to use my hint more than usual. I actually did many of the mini games. That means one of two things. Either my patience level is increasing or they were simple. At my age, I would guess the latter. They were challenging and I think my only complaint with them was the repetition of one mini after another to get something. So far as helpers, there is the interactive map which transports and shows where you have something to do. Only difficulty with it, was you had to open your H.E.L.P. box to access the map. It just seemed like a waste of time when you should just be able to click map without waiting on a box to open. As usual, there are the fact cards which provide information about subject matter. Since I wasn't familiar with Qin dynasty, a lot of them were of no interest to me, but they did provide a lot of information. Again, my lack of familiarity with the subject, other than the terracotta warriors, is very limited so the story, while it was simple to follow, did leave me a little bewildered at times. I really need to play this again and see if perhaps I missed something along the way. This is a great game and I do recommend it. Be sure to try out the demo and decide for yourself. The demo will perhaps leave you wondering about different things, but those things are answered in the remainder of the game. Happy gaming. October 3, 2016
A leap forward This series keeps getting better and better. I never hit the hint or skip button, but this game really stumped me at times. The puzzles were very challenging, which I like very much. Great twists on old puzzle styles were a plus. The only con was the graphics. Still looks like lo-res on the seek-and-find portions. But other than that, this game was well worth the buy. If you like challenging puzzles, give this one a try. October 6, 2016
could have been great! the graphics are far from crisp in a lot of scenes and the scenery so littered with Chinese artifacts, for no rhyme no reason no less, that I just could not get sucked in this messy web! It had no sense of reality and when one plays with history, one should make the effort of giving one the impression they are discovering a true ancient site instead of a scattered Disneyland replica of one! I was so looking forward to this since I have a soft spot for archeology but I was utterly disappointed. Nothing made any sense, things were just thrown together, looking brand new no less in spite of their seemingly old age: no sensible thread, no excitement, not for me, at all! AWFUL! October 11, 2016
Program sticks so you can't finish the game -- Waste of Money The story line and game was fine until I got to the "Circles" mini-puzzle. Then the puzzle wouldn't let me proceed to the upper right hand section, and wouldn't "skip". Can't proceed without completing the Mini puzzle, and the game won't let it proceed. Very frustrating and a waste of the money. October 19, 2016
