Customer Reviews
Hidden Expedition: Reign of Flames Collector's Edition is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Domini Redeems Itself! Let's face it- Domini has put out a few clunkers as of late- predictable, incredibly boring (the Halloween offerings), I believe that is the complaint of many of the reviews you see today- rehash after rehash after rehash. The same ol' same ol'. Which is actually understandable because if a developer is running a series, eventually that developer will run out of ideas. It happens, even on TV: Seinfeld went out on a high note, the Brady Bunch not so much. You can tell a series is running out of ideas when new characters have to be introduced- usually babies (so long fantastic series "Mike and Molly). But, finally, even in today's casual gaming world of stultifying CG graphics comes this gem from Domini. They've been listening! I am fascinated with the Maori- whoa, no other developer has touched that before! The graphics, although cg (I am a devoted fan of hand drawn and colored graphics but those days are gone- too time consuming for this game-a-day venue) are beautiful! No pink or purple- hurray! The HOGs are user friendly and I love the match-3 option. I love the fact the game is multicultural. The game operated smoothly on my pc. Some of the puzzles definitely took me a day or two to get through- where there is a will there is a way! lol I am so appreciative of these developers getting away from fantasy land, because as they say, nothing is stranger than truth. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of fun and excitement I can only agree with sunnyglow, beautiful graphics and a story that captivated me from the beginning. This game has like every other game from Domini all the collectibles and great mini games. I can only recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! A Game Sans Green And Purple!! They would have diminished the beauty of this lush paradise island. The softer color palette made the graphics especially beautiful. That change in colors made a big difference. I haven't found recent Hidden Expedition games to be as fun as the older ones, they changed too much and lost the beautiful scenery as well due to garish colors. This game today, however, has some redeeming qualities that inspired me to purchase, after playing the demo. I love games that take me all over the world to exotic locations, archeological digs, and throw in those mysterious relics and evil-minded agents. I've been playing for several hours and it is, in my opinion, very entertaining, plus the beautiful, interesting locations keep my interest level up. Quality graphics is an important attribute to any game. The storyline for this expedition is interesting, containing the usual elements of danger, the threat of destruction at the hands of a greedy, power-crazed agent. So what's new?? Right?! But it makes this game interesting enough to buy and go on the adventure. It's a busy game, lots to do as the story goes to each beautiful location. I don't feel burdened with the numerous tasks, but I think some of them are just plain silly. Why can't a logical approach be used to fix or retrieve things, for example? But, that will probably never change. The HOP scenes are excellent in style and beauty. I've come across an underwater scene that was fabulous. I appreciate the creativity in design and artwork in each one and the fun variety. Domini always does a fantastic job in this area. The puzzles are not super challenging, so I decided to change from Easy to Hard on some of them. This option is a nice feature that I wish all developers would include in their games. I am hoping to complete all the puzzles in this game. I'm an avid skipper since I am not a puzzle fan, so this feature helps me endure. The puzzles are interesting in variety. There is not an over-abundance of them, which is a good thing for me. There aren't many collectibles which is a bit disappointing, but 41 Achievements will keep you busy, although many of them are ridiculous but still fun. I'm anxious to get into the Bonus Chapter, as Hidden Expeditions usually gives us another interesting case to delve into. This is a long game, but will be even longer for me since I am a slow-poke player, taking in everything along the way. With all the beauty and interesting things in this adventure, I am already at a snail's pace. There are no tech issues as I play on my PC, everything about the game is really fine, so far. The music is nice and the Fact Cards you collect throughout the game contain interesting trivia on New Zealand. I think this game is suitable for most and the choice of play modes makes it fun for every skill level. Domini continues to shine as one of my top 2 developers. Having a good experience with Hidden Expedition: Reign of Flames, trying to save the world from destruction. For me, the demo suggested a good adventure ahead. glad I took the plunge. Give it a try, maybe you'll like it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ENJOY AN ISLAND ADVENTURE IN ONE OF THE BEST GAMES OF THE YEAR REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME 8 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 54 pages (My Time: 7 Hours) STORY: Agent! At the invitation of your friend, Macana, you are off on a Polynesian vacation on the island of Forgotten Cloud, off the coast of New Zealand. However, your vacation plans will be dashed when you meet an unscrupulous agent of the Black Market who dupes you into helping her in her quest to locate a valuable relic, the Sun Drop. This artifact brings power and wealth to whoever owns it; however, it comes with a price – death and destruction to the world. Now you and your friend must race against time to locate this artifact before she does. OPINION: What a fantastic game – a classic! I found this game to be one of the best ones I have played this year. With the pandemic thwarting any vacation plans I had this year, at least for a few hours, I felt I was on vacation on this island paradise. The graphics are incredibly beautiful. For once, Domini left the vivid purple and neon green in their crayon box and brought out soft pastels and bright blues to reflect an island paradise. I found the background music relaxing and soothing. I was completely immersed in this game. In my opinion, Domini is the one to beat in producing this genre of games. They even outdid themselves with this game. Kudos to the “gamemeister!” This is a long game! However, the time just sped by playing it. The pace of the game is excellent. Once I started, I just wanted to finish it! There are plenty of activities and a change of scenery to keep a player engaged. Collect fact cards, tattoos, and souvenirs of your trip. The fact cards provide trivia about New Zealand. It was nice to see that there were no collectible coins, seashells or any other currency used to exchange for some trinkets to put in a beach bungalow, aquarium, or any other location. I, for one, really liked just collecting the three provided. I found most easy to locate but some were somewhat difficult. MECHANICS: • Four (4) levels of play including a customized version. • 41 achievements. • Collect 15 fact disks which give facts about New Zealand, 15 tattoos and 15 souvenirs • 13 wallpapers along with concept art, music, and video sequences • Replay 18 HOP scenes and 18 mini-games BONUS CHAPTER: As an agent of H.E.L.P. you are off on another case, this time to another tropical paradise, Hawaii. The Black Market is planning a heist to steal a Maori tablet which is being transported to the Hawaiian Museum. When you arrive, you see the perpetrator escaping with the tablet. Now you are off to recover it. I found this chapter to be a nice addition to the game. There are five (5) HOP scenes and seven (7) mini-games. I found the quality of activities the same as in the main chapter. Continue to collect all the collectibles in this chapter. HOP SCENES: Feast your eyes on some incredible eye candy with these scenes! There are eighteen (18) HOP scenes; all can be replayed at the end of the game. They are creatively designed and there are many different styles. The underwater scenes are breathtaking! There are two scenes which I found outstanding. In one, the player locates shells underwater in three different scenes. These three scenes are just incredibly beautiful. In another scene, the player locates symbols with some glistening Maori works of art. Domini is best known for their puzzles; however, the scenes in this game are some of the best I have ever played. MINI-GAMES: As always, Domini provides more game for the money. This is evident in the mini-games. There are twenty-four (24) mini-games, eighteen (18) of which can be replayed at the end of the game. Most of the mini-games can be played in either a “hard” or “easy” mode. This option can be set in the menu but can be changed as well while playing the game. I love this feature. It allows the player to tailor the game to his taste – an easy breezy game for some to a challenging one for others. There is a wide range of puzzles as well. SPOILERS: HERE ARE SOME OF THE MINI-GAMES AFTER THE DEMO (E = Easy; H= Hard) A. E/H Tangram puzzle. Place pieces to fill in gaps in a bridge so that a full bridge is created with no gaps. The hard version has more pieces to place. B. E/H. Connection puzzle. Use fuses to connect matching numbers to create an electrical current between them. The easy version has 4 numbers. The hard version has 6 C. E/H Sequence puzzle. Somewhat like a HOP scene. Search for a specific number of items on a computer screen. In the hard version you must do them in sequence. In the easy version, just locate the number of items requested. D. Map puzzle. Swim in an ocean grid to reach an exit avoiding dangerous jellyfish in your path. Choose between 3 paths and click on the path at the right moment. 3X E. Connection puzzle. Connect jellyfish with the number of lines emanating from them which matches the number written on them F. E/H. Moving tiles puzzle. Move cylinders to display numbers and press on them in sequential order from 1 to 7 in the easy version and 1 to 10 in the hard version. BONUS CHAPTER: G. E/H Alignment puzzle. Align bars with symbols on them with those at the bottom of the grid so all symbols are lit up at the bottom of the grid. The harder version has more symbols and more bars to align. H. E/H Switch puzzle. Switch books so that the hands of the images on the spine have a sphere between them. Hard version has more books to switch

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hidden Sam This series has change in the last 3 or 4 games and not getting better. Not to bad of a game since I did enjoy it some but not like the first ones. I believe it is a new designer but I forgot to check. I didn't have any crash problems . I think they need to change the name and no more Hidden Expedition unless Sam(The first voice actor) and quality comes back. A different game name and it might sell better, This game was fun but not interesting or exciting seems kind of for kids. Like my parents telling me what needs to be done in the game. Hope that make sense .I would give it a 31/2 star but I can't do that. Get on sale. The plus side is it has some length in time compared to some of the newer games out but bonus is not worth the Collector's price. I recommend this game, sort of.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Based on Trial This looks a good game. Does respond a little slowly on my computer but the storyline and background music is good. I normally turn the music right down but it adds a little to ambience in this game. If you are not a beginner I would suggest the hard challenge on the mini games as I found easy was for me just too easy. The collectibles are shown at the bottom near the inventory so you know what you are looking for and can make sure therefore that you collect without having to refer to the strategy guide to check. This is a buy for me

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This one is for beginners in HO games I've been playing these games for awhile. I like the Domini Games as they are brightly coloured and not scary. This one however is the same as most of the others. Same idea different day. It was not interesting enough for me to buy. I played the trial only. If you are a seasoned HO game player then I do not think, as I did, that there is anything new here. If you have not played a HO game before then it could be fun. The story line is not much different to others but it does look good. This one not good enough for me to bother with

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The destination is not really worth the journey. This game doesn’t deserve the five-star rating some have given it, nor does it deserve the one-star given by others. It’s just not challenging enough to be so highly rated, and it’s not so cobbled together from bit and pieces of other games to make it so lowly rated. I would have given it 2½-stars if that had been possible, The graphics are nice, not extraordinary, but adequate. The background music leaves something to be desired since it really doesn’t add anything to the game play. The dialog, for the most part, is banal and generally predictable. I’m not a puzzle fan, as you know if you’ve read any of my other reviews, but I didn’t find any in this game that were particularly challenging. The HO sequences were likewise run-of-the-mill and all too familiar if you’ve played more than two games before trying this one. The CE extras —collectibles, souvenirs, and so on— weren’t that hard to find. They didn’t really add anything to the game either, they were just there to find. So, having said all that, this game is not for me and I won’t be buying it. If you’re relatively new to this type of game play, you might find this one acceptable. Expert players, though, will be yawning and reaching for the exit button in short order. While I can’t recommend this game, try the demo and decide for yourself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from THEY CAN'T ALL BE THE BEST GAME OF THE YEAR? Completed Game approximately 6.0 hours (including completion of all mini-games & CE Bonus Chapter) 25 Main Game Scene Locations +10 Bonus Chapter Difficulty Range: Beginner Yes, the game is a significant improvement over the last Hidden Expedition game which was the first attempt at the series by this developer since Eipix left the H.E.L.P. Expedition organization. Yes, the colors are beautiful and they don't involve the over-abundance of purple, green, and blue hues which is the usual Domini M.O. Yes, the developer has done a great job...of fooling the player during the 90-minute demo into thinking this game is different, that this game, is more in tune with the original Hidden Expedition games from the previous developer with all the well-loved characters we grew to love, like Sam, in his green plaid shirt, who always managed to get captured by the bad guys while I ran around doing all the real work! Yes, it has collectibles, yes it has a bunch of chapters, and all the usual CE flair. No, it is not the best game of the year, it's a pretty game. No it doesn't have the most interesting story ever told, it's a pretty game that takes place on the beautiful island of Forgotten Cloud in New Zealand, complete with volcanic eruptions, ancient Maori legends, exotic wildlife, and lush foiliage. No, it's not a classic, if you look past the pretty, you'll realize that the gameply is the same as all other Domini games, and after the demo you will find the repetitivness and the unimagoinative task syndrome returning with a vengence...as does the boredom. Domini's failure to broaden their fan-base to those of us who know with certainty what will be required of newly found invetory items such as corks, gloves, fishing poles, glass shards, coins, tape-powder-brush, planks, magnets, etc. is being directly reflected on their average ratings lately, it's a shame they don't apply the credible reviews to their games. I'm not saying that every game should be geared towards expert gamers, but every game should certainly not be geared toward the easy-breezy either, and the reviewers lately all seem to be on the same page. I'd also like to point out that before I started the game, I checked out all the CE features for my review, such as finding out how many Achievements can be earned. There are 41 Achievements, but incredibly, I had already earned the achievement for solving 5 Mini-games without reading the information before I had even decided how I would play the game? Gadgets/Helper: There are no Gadgets or Helpers. If this were a true Hidden Expedition game it would have a good old-fashioned H.E.L.P box for the fact cards but those fact cards are more technologically advanced now and they are done automatically. Collectibles & Morphing Objects (CE Version Only): There are 15 Fact Cards with fun facts about New Zealand, 15 Tattoos, and 15 Souvenir's. You can opt to show/hide a collectibles tab on the inventory bar that will open a specific icon when there is a collectible available. Hidden Object Scenes: There are 13 Hidden Object Scenes +5 in the CE Bonus Chapter and an alternate Match 3 Game available, which btw, doesn't allow you to make consecutive matches quickly. (you have to wait for all tiles to stop falling before you can make the next match which makes the game seem sooo slooowww) There are Interactive Listed Item Finds, Replacing items into the Scene, Silhouetted Shapes, Multiples of Item Finds, Items Related, or Keywords in Sentence Finds, Matching Shells and several scenes that require scrolling through multiple scenes. Mini-Games: There are 17 Mini-Games +7 in the CE Bonus Chapter. You can choose to play them in an Easy or Hard difficulty mode and you can choose which mode to have them start out in the Custom Setting (you can still switch between modes for each individual game) Bonus Chapter (CE Version Only) It's up to the H.E.L.P team to stop a heist of the Maori Tablet on it's way to the Hawaiian Museum. This is a typical stretched out Bonus Chapter with a lot of cliche tasks and a ton of back and forth unnecessary repetitiveness, so much so that I just couldn't force myself to complete the chapter. Collector's Edition Extra's: (CE version only) 13 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art Pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, 31 Movie Video Cutscenes, 41 Achievements, 18 Replayable Mini-Games, 18 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 15 Fact Cards,15 Tattoos, 15 Souvenirs, a gazillion Missing Notes, 8 Main Chapters, +Bonus Chapter, and a Built-In Strategy Guide.
