Customer Reviews
Hidden Expedition: The Curse of Mithridates is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the Adventure I had some free SV coupons from buying CEs so I picked this up. I wanted to find out what happen after the trial when the gas got my co-worker. I was so surprised how much I liked this game. Loved traveling, the info, the 20 fact cards, the characters, the adventure and the storyline. Enjoyed the 14 hops. Liked the puzzle where you had to swing a item along the puzzle. The puzzles got harder for me as I got closer to the end. Didn't like some explaining a, b, c, either. I always wanted to access CE perks when I was playing. Wanted to know what chapter I'm on. How many chapters there are. Look at the guide to see what they wanted me to do with the puzzles. Collect things. I did alright with out them but still wanted them. I would have tried more puzzles with the guide but I skipped a lot of them. I figured it's free so see if you like it, you won't be out anything. I could always buy the CE later if I liked it. I went to the CE reviews to see if someone had the info I wanted to know like the replay numbers and if they liked the bonus and was happy to find out. Still the SV isn't as bad as I thought. Great Game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Something of a sleeper in this series Like another reviewer I found when I started this game I thought it was ok but not sure if I would purchase. So glad I did. Once I started on the world travels I found it to be great fun and very informative. I have been to Malta and am in India now so I have not finished but I love it and would recommend it. Next time a start that immediately draws you in would be a good idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A SLOW START ISN’T ALWAYS A BAD THING! When I played the beta for this latest Hidden Expedition the Curse of Mithridates, I honestly fell asleep. Well I tried again a few days ago and the same thing happened so I was either too tired or the game was just downright boring. Hating to give up and with a good sale today I ended up purchasing the game. When I started playing a strange thing happened – I ended up thinking this is far better than I thought it would be. By the time that I got out of Turkey and into Malta I was becoming convinced that the game was actually better than I thought it would be. As of the time I write this review, I have almost finished the full game and have to admit that my first impression was totally wrong and this is an excellent new Hidden Expedition game and, in fact, it is much better that the last few offerings in the series. I am not going to bother writing about the storyline or all of the other basics as others have covered that by now in their reviews but let me just say that a game that started out as an archaeologic find has me now globetrotting to save my fellow H.E.L.P. members. It is a fun adventure with lots of great HOPS thrown in for good measure. My only complaint is that some of the puzzles were downright confusing mainly because the instructions left a lot to be desired. Fortunately, purchasing the full game I had my trusty strategy guide on hand and that did offer a bit of help in solving or at least figuring out what I was supposed to do to solve some puzzles. Many of the puzzles were straight forward and easy while others were scratching my head difficult. All in all, there is something for everyone in the game. One of the reasons that I think so many gamers might be down on this game is because it really does get off to a slow start. I have recommended that the developer try to put a bit more forward movement into the beginning of their games and that might generate a bit more enthusiasm on the part of their audience. When a game moves so slowly and is bogged down by so many little items in the beginning the gamer wants to say enough already and gives up, or goes to take a nap – anything to get away from the snail pace action. The only thing I can recommend is that you stick with that very slow beginning and then enjoy the excitement as the game truly gets going. Since I am almost at the end of the game I am now looking forward to playing the bonus chapter that promises to be just as good as the full game. As always, even though I love this game I recommend that you give the demo a try (please stick it out to the end of the demo) to see if this is a game you will enjoy as much as I do. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love A Good Adventure I'm a huge fan of the Hidden Expedition series, so I was quite keen when this came out. In keeping with past episodes you are tasked in flying around the world to find clues and artifacts to save your colleagues, history, and the world itself. Am I exaggerating a bit, why yes, but this is the closest series where I feel like I'm Indiana Jones where I alone can save the world! This game, like all of Eipix games, has all the bells and whistles you would expect as well as the quality that this dev is known for. This is a series you don't want to miss.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Hit in the Hidden Expedition Series This is posted after playing the entire game. I really enjoy this series and this game was no exception. There was so much going on in the game I only planned to play for a while and then mow the yard. Well, the yard can wait until tomorrow. Really liked it. As usual the sound was great. Really liked the voice overs. Graphics were excellent. One scene actually looked 3D. I was shocked to see it. Music and effects went along with the story and the scene. I maked down the challenge a bit and probably shouldn't have. I loved what they did with the hidden object scenes. So varied and interesting. It amazes me how they can keep coming up with ways to hide something, but they do. The mark down was because of the mini games. Not my favorite anyway, but when I don't understand the instructions and simply wait the few seconds so I can skip it is not good. I did several of them, but the ones I couldn't do was because the instructions, even with the A,B,Cs outlining everything, I couldn't do them. Even after the game showed me how it was done, I sat here and wondered how did they do that. Way beyond my patience and abilities. The map was a necessity for me. There is a lot of running back and forth and the map shows where there is something to do and transports. There were a couple times the map didn't show anything and I couldn't find anything in the scene and when I hit hint, it took me to an unmarked location. Not a problem, but something to be aware. I love the fact cards. They come up along the way and give information about the region or people you are dealing with at the time. IE, I didn't know that the Hawaiian Islands were known as the Sandwich Islands, not to be confused with the South Sandwich Islands. Trivia is the key to a long life, my friend. :-) The story was really good as usual. No ghosts, witches or other things that go bump in the night. Others will go into detail about the story, but just let me say the only disappointment I had was with the ending. It ... just ended. The continuity is there throughout the game. I didn't find any missteps whatsoever. This one is a tad bit different from the others in the series in the way it's presented, but that is a good thing. Give the demo a try and I think you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I had a love-hate relationship with this game Right at the beginning is a mini game which I hated because I could not get the cursor to line up the parts, they just simply would not move! You may have better luck with this than I did but eventually I had to skip it. Not a good way to begin. I started to throw in the towel right then but I decided to play out the demo to see where the game would take me. When the demo finished, I was intrigued enough to buy the game since it was on sale even though I wasn't really all that enthused. I'm not disappointed that I bought it but it really isn't a great game. It is a story of jumping from location to location to find supposedly extinct ingredients for a poison antidote. These ingredients include a the last of a type of leopard secretly kept for centuries in India. Once the antidote was prepared, I thought they were supposed to add it the water supply but all of the antidote was used on the fallen agents. I loved it because there were mini games which I have not encountered before. However, the instructions on some of the mini games should have been more explicit. I hate to skip puzzles but I did once or twice simply because I could not figure out how I was supposed to play it. As usual this dev does not scrimp on the art and VOs. Those were very well done. The plot was different enough to be interesting but still the superhero H.E.L.P agent must save the world. I think the dev should put this series to rest. The value and fun of these games has just about been exhausted. As I said, at times I hated this game, at others I loved it. Try the demo and see if you are intrigued enough to want to purchase it

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 6 DAYS TO FIND THE ANTIDOTE, MAKE THAT 4 DAYS When the Collector's Edition version of The Curse of Mithridates was first released, I mistakenly gave the game 2 stars on my review. After playing the entire game, I realized that I was a little too harsh with my critique of the demo, but not by much. Although there are 5 chapters (not including the bonus chapter) the chapters are either too short, or so easy that they seem too short, because after the demo, it only took me about 2 hours to complete the main game, and I only skipped one mini game! All the excitement happens within the demo, afterwards, you are tasked with finding ingredients to make an antidote to save your poisoned collegues. You visit the library in Prague, very boring, jet off to Malta, fairly boring, next stop is the South Sandwich Islands, not too boring, and finally India to wrap things up, after you take a snooze and waste an entire day that is. To sum it all up, it's not a bad game, but it's not a great game either when you look at the grand scheme. Here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version if either is right for you: Close your eyes and picture what it would look like if a recent earthquake uncovered an ancient, centuries old palace. Now open your eyes an gaze upon Hidden Expedition's version of what the palace would look like, beautiful pristine waters gently sloshing against the cliffs edge exposing the sharp contours of the palace entrance etched into the massive rocks. It's as if the earthquake never happened, no structural damage, no fallen debris, in fact not a stone out of place, inside or ou! Once again, H.E.L.P needs help, when two of their best agents go m.i.a during an archeological expedition of this long forgotten palace of King Mithridates....zzzzzzz King Mithradates was known as the Poison King, a king that became completely obsessed with poison after his father died from poison. The mad king ingested small amounts of poison daily, which gave him an unprecedented resistance to most poisons. It is believed that the king eventually tried to kill himself with the poison he had become immune to, and ordered one of his soldiers to end his life with a spear, guess we'll never know for sure. In the Collector's Edition version, there are 37 of those famous HE not so hidden signs to click on, Morphing Objects within the Hidden Object Scenes and all the usual CE bling. Nothing new or different, and probably never will be, in these cookie cutter Hidden Expedition games. Epix should revisit the past, and see that when they collaborated with Smithsonian, the games were top notched, award winning games, remember Hope Diamond? The Hidden Object Scenes are boring,. Most are Interactive List finds but there are also Multiple finds and Combination finds where you find the item described by two different pictures. In the Collector's Edition version, there is a Morphing Object in each of the main HOP's, and in my opinion, Eipix doesn't want to put forth the effort to include them in each location because it's too much work to have to remove them in every scene for the Standard Edition versions. . The Mini Games are actually what holds this game together. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Drag and drop the hand token to find the right spot on the screen that will bring the transparent contoured arm directly over the normal one and restore your vision. (lather, rinse, repeat) 2) Swap mosaic plates to restore the story. 3) Press each of the cylinders to form the ancient Greek word for lion in the center from top to the bottom. 4) Bring both paw tokens to the paw shaped indentations at the same time. 5) Drag the amphora to the center of the maze, picking up the ingredients along the way. 6) Swing the sun token from the eagles to the door by releasing the ropes holding the token and interacting with the mechanisms. The tokens must swing over each sapphire button to remove the blocks from the board.
