Rite of Passage: The Lost Tides is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost a Winner This is posted after playing the entire game. I have to admit, I've played better games, but all in all it did pass a hot Florida afternoon. I kind of got lost at the beginning and never really did catch up which lost a lot of the fun of the game. There is nothing exceptional about this game, but it does pass the time. The graphics were good. Colors were excellent and the sound, including the music as very acceptable. Voice overs were pretty well done. The only thing I didn't understand is why, in my opinion, when there should have been voice overs there were none, IE the crash scene and others. Hidden objects were somewhat varied and interesting to do. The mini games were also varied and had some I haven't tried to play before. Several I just couldn't figure out what to do even with the instructions, so thankfully the skip, as well as the hint buttons, were quick to charge. There is an interactive map which does show you where there are actions to be done and will transport you there. There isn't a journal, but the objective screen will hold important information that you will need later. Didn't catch that right away and was floundering until I realized they were there. Also in the tutorial, they didn't mention that you can move from side to side in various scenes and when I was lost, hit the hint, lo and behold an arrow popped up on the side of the screen telling me to check over there. This isn't in every scene, but if you get lost just run your cursor to the edge and see. The story if okay. It seemed to wander somewhat. It would go from almost reality to fairyland from scene to scene. It did have a beginning and an ending. It just didn't grab me from the beginning like so many from these folks do. I had a free game about to expire and I decided to go ahead and use it. I'm glad I did and I'm sure when I play it again in a few months, I'll be able to figure out where I got lost and all will be fine. Give it a try. It's not the longest game I have nor the shortest, but it is well worth checking out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sail on this Voyage! Your parents were lost at sea in a ship, the Everlast, which disappeared before your eyes as you and your brother drifted away from the sinking ship in a life boat. Now, twenty years later, you see the boat reappear in port. A strangely violent storm keeps you from going out there at first, but you persevere with the help of your brother, the only other survivor of the earlier disappearance. Somehow the Everlast is all mixed up with mermaids, old legends, your Dad's old compass, and the strange storm. There are various HOPs, good mini-games, lovely music and artwork, a transporter map, and a reasonably gripping story. You have your Dad's compass to remove "bad" energy from objects you encounter during the adventure. The mermaid controlling the boat and storm is suitably vindictive and nasty. The other characters are not given enough content to tell you much about them in the demo. There will be various mini-games that give you more story as you go along. Your character seems remarkably calm for having seen a ship appear after being lost for twenty years, especially considering Mom and Dad might still be on board. (Hey, if the Everlast can reappear, so can they!) Along with the gripping storyline, the execution has a certain charm to it, and the game-play is good enough to make me want to sail along on this voyage. Try this game and you will really appreciate today's sale!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "The Lost Must Be Forgotten" You'll never forget that stormy night, aboard the Everlast Timeless Cruise, when you and your brother escaped the sinking ship on a lifeboat! The two of you watched helplessly as the ship vanished into thin air, with your parents still onboard, the storm clouds seemingly swallowing up the entire cruiseliner. That was 20 years ago, and that strange storm has returned, along with it the Everlast Cruise Ship! Have your parents returned as well? One thing's for sure, someone, or something, doesn't want you to find out! The only feature I didn't like in this fourth installment of Rite of Passage was with the Compass that dad gave you to guide you toward the shore. It is used to dispel energy that surrounds random objects whenever the compass begins to shake wildly. I thought it was unnecessary with no entertainment value, if it doesn't add value to the game, why have it? Some of the inventory items have plus signs which indicate that some type of interaction is required before you can use the item, usually combining that item with another inventory item. The first Hidden Object Scene was unique, you had to find matching cards and then place those cards correctly with the cards a statue was holding in her hands. There are also interactive list finds where the items from the list move aside to expose a fragment that will eventually complete a mosaic fish picture. The Collector's Edition has a Morphing Objects within the HOP and an icon to show if the Morph has been found. There are actually a lot of Mini Games, swapping and rotating puzzle pieces, matching two exact symbols or placing wooden animals in their respective habitats. My favorite however, was a variation of "Blocks" where you had to rotate mirrors to capture a beam of light and direct it through the house until it reached a character sleeping to wake him up, BUT you also had to move furniture that blocked the light beam in a blocks type scenario. The Collector's Edition has Achievements, Morphing Objects, 37 Collectible Seashells, Wallpapers, Soundtracks, a Gallery, Collectible Hunt, Everlasting Voyage Bonus Game, replayable HO's (with trophies to earn when you beat a specific time) and a built in Strategy Guide, enjoy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, not Mad Heads best. I love Mad Head, and Artifex Mundi games so I purchase every game they make. This was a good game, it just wasn't a great game. It's no Nevertales, Beyond light advent or Princess of Ice those games were extraordinaire. The Visuals and Music as always were perfect, game play was fun and straight forward not hard to figure out what to do which I normally appreciate, but it seemed a little to easy. I had a glitch in my game that kept letters that should have been discarded the hint kept telling me I needed to use them when I did not! That frustrated me a bit and I was a little disappointed with the ending since the brother never made it back into the story other then that I had fun playing it so I would recommend buying it but on a sale day. It would not be a game I would recommend at full price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short and Ordinary I was surprised this got such good reviews. After completing the whole game, I found it unoriginal, short, not very challenging.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It feels like a bad month I won't go into the actual game schematics, as it has already been said. I will say: I very much liked the mermaid. Everything else:,meh, its been done before. If I have to look for one more lost relative, I am going to just go overboard and drown myself. Building the copter was just rote, and not fun. I could not work up a feeling for the brother, either. The town scenes were boring as well. I think the creators of this game probably had a very good idea, and then were somehow pushed crossways into other ideas that do not work well in a HOG/Search. I think this game might have worked, if it had not been crushed down into the BFG mindset. To You Creators: Keep at it. You will make a great game and we will support you. People will buy your game when you make it unique, not only when you make it BFG lite.
