Return to Mysterious Island is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oldie but Goodie I was worried that going back to a game created almost 15 years ago would even be compatible with today's PCs, but YAY! it was. A bit overwhelming at first to figure out the navigation and overall "rules" of the game, but so worth it! The variety of item combinations allowed makes for a truly absorbing game. So glad I found this little nugget! [especially in a time when it seems the bulk of HOPA games being produced are watered down, hand-holding versions produced for novice masses who don't mind if there's no real imagination required]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Game! Love love love it! Had no idea what sort of game it was at first, then when I started, it took me back to my old days of playing Myst (which I miss). I have no idea what "category" this game is, I guess adventure?, but loved it! At first I was thinking the game was too hard for me and I would never get through it, then when it was over, I thought "That was too short! I want more!" The sound effects are most excellent -- some really kept me on edge and others were quite soothing. Great game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Challenging game. I really enjoyed this game, had to put the thinking cap on and think about what was going on. I didn't use any help, so the game was a challenge. Looking forward to playing the next one. If you like Nancy Drew games, you will like this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase I have made here in my 10 years of play!!! I absolutely LOVED this adventure game and found it to be extremely challenging, simply amazing in graphics with an enthralling story line. This is the most unique game I have encountered! I have not found anything like it before or since (excepting, of course, it's sequel). The game opens with you playing as Mina as she is making a crash landing on this Jules Verne inspired island. There is really no helpful tutorial, you must figure things out for yourself. It becomes obvious that people have been to this place before and left some things behind both littering the island with useful materials and booby trapping it. You walk around the island as you would in real life and look for pieces of cloth, sticks, rocks, flint and things like that to craft yourself a knife or create a fire. As Mina thinks out loud things like "It's too high, if only I had a way to get up there" she gives you little clues as to what you need to do next. There is no "hint" button to help you along, you must rely on your own brain, something any intellectual will appreciate! You will, however, encounter an adorable monkey as an animal companion that is very helpful when you can figure out how to utilize his skills. The mini games range from simple to incredibly hard (one almost had me in tears of frustration) and THANK YOU to whomever designed this without using a single hidden object sequence. There are too many games that rely on that, this one was very unique and refreshing! I have played this game through more than once but it doesn't have a really high replay value unless you keep it in the treasure box for years as I have. Do not let that discourage you, this is not a game you can beat in a day... it is a full fledged adventure almost on par with a $50 console game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just played it again and LOVED IT just as much as the first time! This game is beautifully done - scenery, effects, music, and is nicely challenging, making you think outside the box to accomplish the goals that are set for you. Navigate the island, reclaiming useful items that you will need to succeed. Excellent for all ages. Wake up that brain or you'll never survive to get off the island!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT GAME Don't let the "No Trial" scare you off-believe me--I am not a smart person when it comes to adventure games- but this is not easy if you think about things. If having a hard time, youtube has a general clip. This game is so much fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHERE HAS THIS GAME BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!? Brilliant! Challenging! Innovative!! Engaging! (And lots of other superlatives!) This is, quite simply, THE most amazing game EVER. I'm constantly searching for something intelligent, challenging and interesting and am regularly disappointed by fairies/elves, monsters/demons, inept detectives and relatives searching for lost loved ones. Return To Mysterious Island is so refreshingly different. I loved having to find and construct tools, make medicines, combine fire-building materials, etc. It really makes you feel like you're on a deserted island and scrabbling for survival. The graphics are stunning, the voice-over acting is very believable and even the music was pertinent and enjoyable. The point and click action and 360 degree view were wonderful. I've played quite a few of the Nancy Drew games and loved each one, but they just don't compare to this one. Judging by the comments in many of the reviews, Big Fish would do well to bring a lot more of this type of game to their site. I have to go now and buy the sequel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY CHALLENGING GAME I really felt like McIver at times, it made me really think a lot and try al kinds of solutions however fantastic and sometimes this helped.Loved the scenery and the little monkeyfriend.It took me about 3 days to finish it, playing about 6 hours a day.I lost time mainly when assembling different parts of things you had to find and use.But I shall certainly play it more than once.It had things in common with the art of murder series and Siberia and no hos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Challenging and enjoyable I loved it!! The story was great and loved that there was more than 1 way to solve puzzles which meant if you did something it was never wrong...hate those games where if you do something too early it stuffs up the game and you have to restart....the characters were enjoyable and likeable and i am now off to play the second one :)
