Mystery Trackers: Darkwater Bay is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from DID YOU JUST FIND THE ANCIENT ATLANTEAN CIVILIZATION? Mystery Trackers Darkwater Bay is the fifteenth game in the MT series. Once again you play a detective with the Mystery Trackers organization and this time you might have been given the case of a lifetime. Dr. Russell Jackman who is a renowned scientist has disappeared while working on his research vessel the Poseidon. No one has heard from him and it is feared that he might be in trouble. As you and your trusty companion Elf arrive on the Poseidon, it looks like there was some sort of disturbance and Dr. Jackman is nowhere to be found. By following the clues left by Dr. Jackman you are soon off on an adventure that will turn into a very dangerous mission. Travel to the depths of the ocean as you search for the missing scientist and confront members of the Dark Trackers organization in a rush to control a very ancient and dangerous artifact. The graphics are amazing and some of the best I’ve seen in recent games. If there is any drawback it is Dr. Jackman’s accent and voice acting that could have been a lot more natural and less contrived. Since it is not a constant part of the game I didn’t find it too annoying. Even though your companion Elf has traveled with you in this game, he seems to be very silent and not an integral part of the find and fetch crew. The HOP scenes are fairly standard and what we expect to find in games from this developer, but they have been stepped up and seem more interactive. Even though I really enjoyed the HOPS, as I didn’t have to search for really tiny and almost invisible items, what is excellent in Darkwater Bay is the variety and difficulty of the puzzles. There are some new puzzles that I really enjoyed and one of my favorite puzzles is found early in the game when we need to open a wall cache to find some needed items. Although it is not a difficult it took some time to solve. Some gamers might find the game short since it only includes three chapters but I for me it was just right. I love this game and find the gameplay has kept me quite busy. I am not a fast player who loves to rush through a game to see how fast I can complete it, but rather one who loves to look at every scene and enjoy the graphics and each little detail. This seems to be one of the best games in the MT series since those earlier ones in Raincliff. I played the beta for the game and have been anxiously awaiting the full game release and it doesn’t disappoint. Elephant Games nailed this one and has provided a great mystery game with a lot of action to keep me involved right through the end. Even though I really enjoyed this game, as always please try the demo to see if this is a game you will enjoy. Happy gaming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM? I'd like to point out that Elephant Games have always had some of the best Computer Generated Graphics. After playing Thursday's game by another well-known developer, it's clear to me that there's just no comparison! I've always said that nobody can pull off an abandoned creepy town like Elephant Games because they pay attention to detail. When you look at the location scenes of most other games, the first thing you notice is that objects are large and there's hardly any detail. Sure the colors are vibrant and pretty but it just seems fake, you don't feel like you're actually there. That's the difference here that I'm talking about, with Elephant Games, the scenes are realistic and instead of feeling like you're just looking at a made-up scene in a game, their games make you feel like you're actually there, or at least they make you feel that the scene is believable, that the town is believable or the rooms you enter are real. I just wanted to point out that the Elephant in the room can sometimes be the tiny detail that we often overlook. Even though this game only has 3 Chapters, I felt that the Chapters were of decent length, and the CE Bonus Chapter was a decent length as well. The CE Bonus Chapter is a sequel that takes place shortly afterword with a similar plot (kidnapping of Dr. Jackman by the Dark Trackers) The BC has 7 remaining Hidden Object Scenes and 5 remaining Mini-Games, and there are 3 Collectibles, 8 Puzzle Pieces, and 8 Morphing Objects to pick up in the CE BC. Here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version, if either is right for you: Your mission, should you decide to accept it (do I get a choice?) is to locate DR. Russell Jackman who suddenly went mia shortly after discovering what is believed to be the legendary city of Atlantis. The Order of the Dark Trackers organization is desperately trying to steal the Atlantean Tesseract which gave the Atlanteans the power to control the sea. I have just one question, did anyone know there was an anti-Mystery Trackers Agency? My little Min Pin has returned to steal the show. I've told the Elf story before, but since it's an interesting story and some may be new to the series, I'll tell it again. Originally, Elephant was developing a dark Fairy Tale with no Hidden Objects, but about 70% through they realized their mistake and scrapped it. Eventually, Mystery Trackers: The Void was created but it didn't include Elf until Black Isles. One of the team members saw a Miniature Pincher and did some research and found that they were often called Elves because of their large pointy ears. That little Elf has been a vital component of Mystery Trackers ever since, in fact, I don't believe I would purchase a MT game in the future if it didn't include my beloved crime-fighting partner Elf! The Hidden Object Scenes are typical for Elephant Games with mostly Interactive List finds, but many of the scenes are multi-layered. There are Silhouetted Shape Finds, Morphing Object Finds, Replacing Misplaced Item Finds and several Zoom Zone Hidden Object Scenes available. In the game itself, there are more Mini-Games than HOP's but more HOP's offered than Mini-Games in the CE Secret Room re-playable section. Some of the Mini-Games are simply fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the Fish puzzle (they look like snakes?), the Star and Hook puzzle and the Gears puzzles. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1-Move triangles along tracks until they fit into the slots. 2-Arrange fish so they aren't touching each other. 3-Drag sphere along tracks through all gears to open portals. 4-Rotate triangle sections to match the picture clue shown. 5-Rotate square tiles to connect all lines continuously. 6-Rotate hooks to grab Stars and arrows to move the hooks. 7-Click when the arrow is in the green zone to catch a fish. The Collector's Edition has 8 Wallpapers, 8 Concept Art pictures, 3 Music Soundtracks, 20 Achievements to earn, a Secret Room with 16 re-playable Hidden Object Scenes & 12 re-playable Mini-Games, an Aquarium with 12 Collectible Sea Critters, 27 Morphing Objects, 32 Hidden Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces (automatically assembles the puzzle, why?) 3 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a built-in Strategy Guide, enjoy Atlantis!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good Game This is posted after playing the entire game. MT has come through once again. I really enjoyed playing this one. It's the best game I've played in a long while. Graphics were excellent. I loved the ocean scenes especially. The colors were bright and easy on the eyes. Music was good. Wasn't intrusive at all and like the effects went along with the action in the scene. The only thing I didn't care for were the voice overs. They seemed so artificial and pressed. It seemed like the developers thought, "We need to have something here. Let's put in a fake voice over." It is not a deal breaker by any means, but just to unusual for this developer. The hidden objects were good to an extent. So many designers are going to those little pop-up windows with little tiny objects and it's difficult to even see something. There were several of those. Even in the full screen scenes some of the objects were extremely small and pass difficult to see. Now those dreaded mini games. I do no like them to begin with, but when I can't understand the instructions, rather alone the game, it's skip time. I think I completed two or three of them. They are way past my patience and ability levels. If you like hard minis, you will love this game. I really enjoyed the story. It seemed to keep me interested all the way through. Others will go into depth about what it is about, so I'll leave them to that and not bore you with my rendition. I'll just say it help my attention all the way through. Play the demo and see if this game shouldn't be added to your collection. I loved it and I'm hard to please.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good game, but short! I always love the Mystery Tracker games, but this one only took me a couple hours to finish. Story line was nice but it definitely seemed as if it was missing a lot of something.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good game, except I started liking this game, at first. Then I started getting mini-games that I could not figure out. There is a lot of going back and forth, so that isn't fun, either. I did my usual routine. I look at reviews, play the trial game, buy the game, then find out it isn't so easy after all. Casual is supposed to be a little easier than the other options, but they are not. Keep trying and you might finally get it right. CASUAL games are CASUAL, and not hard to figure out. I only recommend this game because there are much smarter people out there in game land, than me.
