Classic Adventures: The Great Gatsby is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great literature,great game! I just discovered this gem, and loved every peaceful, elegant moment of it. The story itself is not peaceful, but the game play is. If you really appreciate a good HOG and story line, this one is for you. I've already played it twice!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Enjoyed This Game I truly did enjoy this game ( I have played it twice already ). Although I never read the book , the game gives you a real feel for the characters involved and the mini games were very fun and interesting without being monotonous. I loved that the game stayed within the era of the book ( set in1920's - 30's) and the objects were also from that time period. I'm certain I will play it again in a few months. Well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprise, surprise! This game has always popped up in the "you might like this" area and I never even considered it because it just looked like another straight HOS with bad graphics. What a surprise I got when I finally broke down and purchased it on a 60% off day. I now understand why it gets such great ratings. Yes, this is a straight, old school HOS. But there is so much more to this game; I love the typing sequence the best, but all the other game challenges are a hoot. True, the graphics are cartoon like, but the music is great. Unfortunately I turned off the voices and story and I will probably play the game again just to pick up on all the things I missed hearing and doing. The game basically takes you through the Great Gatsby story with music and pick up items which are true to the era. Be prepared for a challenge as the objects are small and you really have to search and I believe they change a bit on each level. Highly recommend as there is so much more to this game than you expect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book, great game! This game is so addictive! And what a pleasure it is that they stayed true to the time and place of the book they based this game on. Refreshing is one word I would use, as well as inventive. The style of the game is truly an interactive novel, as much as any game I have played. Give it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Game Totally enjoyed the game. Items were era-appropriate and I really enjoyed the piano music. This game is mostly Hidden Object, but some of the H0 scenes are completely different than anything I have ever played. There's nothing like being in a moving car and having to find items on the fly. Some of the items, in the H0 scenes are really small, but the clarity of the scenes made it a little easier. The "puzzle" games were unique. Type words as they drop from above and find a set number of items while the scenes are changing. There are trophies to be earned, books to find, and a room to decorate. The voice-overs were excellent and made the story more enjoyable. I would really like to see more games like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gatsby is Great After finishing "The Great Gatsby," I'm looking to read the book (skimmed it in high school, but I have a new appreciation) and hoping the folks who published this game will develop another based on classic lit. I really enjoyed the bright graphics, the music and the way the designers inventiveness developed HOS in the context of the book. I also want to put in a plea...I really wish the folks at MCF had given a look to this game when they wanted to develop variants on HOS's. Their morphing scenes failed in their last grim and gross outing. But in Gatsby HOS are varied by making them move and adding them to video cut scenes. The HO scenes were challenging enough, while not being frustrating and the additional hunts for books and such added to the general positive feel of he game. I continue to be tired and depressed by dark, rainy, gross HOGs and hope more like Gatsby will be forthcoming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Adventures:The Great Gatsby Delivers Let me preface this review by saying that I have never read The Great Gatsby, nor did I know any of the plot before playing. Based on the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, this game is a period piece set in the 1920's. The developers did a very good job making sure that everything was era-appropriate, which helped to make the game more immersive. You will gain trophies as you progress through the game for things like collecting 500 hidden items, finishing a game level without a hint, using a hint before you've found any objects on the scene (oh yes, there is a dunce cap ) The game is NOT timed, but you do have the option of collecting points, which can be used to "buy" items to customize your library. Any trophies you collect will also be displayed in your library. This game is a straight HOG with a lot of story interspersed. Despite this, the game can be as immersive as you wish, for you can turn off the voiced (and visual) dialogue at any time. There are triggers during HOG scenes where text will appear at the top of the screen and voices of characters will begin. You may be 1/4 or 1/2 way through the scene before you hit the right item. It was jolting at first, but I soon became used to the sudden interruptions and actually looked forward to them so that I could learn more of the story. You get points for each item you find, and if you "stagger" the items (find as many items on the screen as possible before you start clicking), you'll get a lot of bonus points. The fast-click bonus is a plus for me, as it gives me incentive to really use my memory to remember where everything is. There are two optional "mini-games" embedded in the hidden object scenes: - Find the Books - Find one book in each scene. Each book you find will give you bonus points and will be displayed on a bookshelf in your library. - Find the Secret Word: Collect letters in the scene to spell out the secret word. When you click on a letter, it will go to a word box on the bottom right of the screen. Finding letters gets you extra points. When you think you know the word, you can try to guess it, and doing so (correctly) will get you even more bonus points. Also, if you can guess early, it will remove all of the letters from the scene and give you the points for those, as well. The hidden objects start out pretty easy - especially the letters for the secret word. As you go forward through the game, however, items and letters get more and more cleverly hidden. At times during gameplay, there are interactive cutscenes. There is narration and changing backgrounds to move the story along, but during these scenes, you have another optional "mini-game" to play: Find x-number of x-item during the scenes to get extra points. You can replay the "transition" scenes if you happened to miss any of the items, but this is also optional. There are a few mini-games like replacing a flat tire on a car, locket puzzles, type-the-falling-words tasks, etc. There are quite a few of the typing tasks, but the SKIP button is immediately available for those who are not able to type fast. Something I really liked about the game were the options. You have three sound bars you can adjust: SFX/Ambience (Clicking noise/background noises like birds chirping), Music and Voices. Now we get to the good stuff: The graphics. The coloration, art style and overall visuals really helped set the tone for the era. Very appropriate. The thing I appreciated the most about the game is that the graphics aren't "static". The scenes are not simple frozen scenes in time. There are nuances of light that play about the scenes that are so beautifully and skillfully done that you don't really notice them unless you are paying attention. This is not the usual "beam of light through the window with dust motes" kind of movement, it's minute changes that bring the scenes to life without distracting the eye. My favorite effect was on the hydrangea bushes on the outside scenes. Two more notes about graphics: First, this game has implemented a type of moving hidden object scene I've never seen before. You have a car and typical hidden object scene in the foreground, with the street and some more objects to find passing by as you are driving. Fast clicking isn't needed, as you can see them coming. Second, you will revisit scenes in this game... but the scenes never look the same. Not only do the hidden objects move around each time the scene loads, but there are daytime and nighttime views! The artists and developers really did a fantastic job keeping the scenes fresh and interesting. The story progresses well, is interesting and complete, and yet still leaves questions that make you want to read the book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good! I'd forgotten how good a game this was since I've played so many others since the last time. It wasn't until I read the reviews here that reminded me how much I enjoyed it so I went back and saw what I originally loved about it. The game follows the book and movie faithfully and there's so much to do here besides just looking for hidden objects that makes the game fun. Looking for the book in each scene as well as the hidden letters, which aren't so hidden, but are needed to spell out the secret word that's part of the story, makes the gameplay interesting as well as the typing game and driving through city streets to catch objects as they pass through the viewing area. Each of these is a separate minigame within the larger game of the hidden object scenes which make up the story, and all of these make for enjoyable gameplay. Although the graphics are hand drawn, they are clear and appropriate for the time period which adds to the challenge. And when you've earned enough money from the minigames, you can purchase items to furnish your library which is an additional thing to like about this game. During the years when I was busy playing only adventure games, I'd abandoned the Great Gatsby and regretted buying it because it was "just another hidden object game" that I'd outgrown. I'm glad I read these reviews because you stirred my interest in it again and the game has so much more going for it than just the hidden object scenes. It's so different from other kinds of games and has become one of my favorites. I'm just surprised the developer hasn't created more games from classic literature since this one is from the Classic Adventures collection. Is the Great Gatsby the first in this series and was there supposed to be more forthcoming? This is a wonderful way to introduce classic books to the gaming environment and I hate to think that this golden opportunity didn't pan out for the devs. Yes, the book may be boring and probably not the best choice for a first game but there's so many books out there so why can't the collection be continued? I love period pieces so I enjoyed seeing how the costumes and everything else looked in the movie and how exact they were replicated in this game. Very well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect blend of art and sound This game brings the feel and sound of the book,The Great Gatsby, to life. I really enjoyed the music: the 1st person narrator was as good as any large screen movie I have ever heard. The atmosphere of the decadent 20's is right in front of you and as a bonus you get all these neat puzzles and games. I want more like this.
