Hanging Gardens of Babylon is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from challenging This game uses a lot of brilliance ... gems, gold, etc ... and can be a little difficult to the eye that is unaccostomed to this particular kind of hidden object game I found it challening for my older eye/brain connection and loved it

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So close to good... The artwork for this game is attractively turned out. Its format is rather old-fashioned, but I quite liked that (I'm perfectly happy without the hokey English and Transylvanian accents which have become the staple of so many cut-away scenes these days). There simply isn't enough plot here. Apparently Babylon is about to be attacked by marauding Egyptians. Things look like hotting up - until nothing happens! We never see a single Egyptian, there is no conflict; we simply flood a tunnel (slightly boringly) and thus save Babylon from disaster. Underwhelmed is probably the best descriptor of how I felt after completing this game. Also - bluntly - it is far too short and the puzzles are somewhat repetitive; you have to solve effectively the same problem over (and over) again, which ends up feeling pretty dull after a while. The two ultimate mazes, which are rather tortuous and just require endless clicking, are the low point of this game and seem to represent the climax. Also, there are some minor programming issues and glitches, but these were easily enough solved by closing and reopening the game: my progress had been saved on each occasion so the frustration was minimal. Hanging Gardens of Babylon is certainly not dreadful, and will kill a couple of hours entertainingly enough, and the graphics are very nicely turned out, but overall we are pretty lacking in wow-factor, I'm afraid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Map Problem In the temple of the God last item to locate was a map, directly behind a God. No matter where I click on the map it subtracted ten points from my score and never did give me the map. Other than that the game was interesting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Insufficient Help when stuck I enjoyed the game, but, I got stuck on the stairs of the pyramid. The game was asking me to bring the offerings I had already found and deposited in front of the gods. There was no help to get me through this. I'm disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mindless entertainment when I really dont want a challenge and enjoy beautiful graphics this fits the bill. I found that the game does not download properly and some games dont work correctly, But there are ways around that and if I felt it would enhance the game I probably would insist on getting it to work perfectly. Still I have enjoyed playing it or should I say I enjoyed the graphics.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waste of money - again Last game I had was terrible. This one isn't much better. It was a bit boring and I hoped it would improve. But, when I got to the stairs of pyramid, I became stuck with no indication of what to do to proceed. Help & Hint were totally useless and I just had to give up since I could not, after numerous attempts, get any further. Graphics are pretty but no story line to follow and HO scenes are repetitious. Think Big Fish might not be game source much longer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Luscious game, but oh so disappointing. The graphics and theme of this game are simply stellar. The music as well is unique and so enjoyable that I'd happily listen to it on a soundtrack. It's such a pity the rest of the game can't keep up with these pluses. The HOG parts are inscrutable--the hint button is all right but the game docks points for mis-clicking, and the problem is that a lot of stuff looks "almost" right so I lost a lot of points that way and got scared to click ANYTHING, only to find out via the hint button that no, actually that was what I needed to click. Otherwise the HOG are thematically appropriate; you won't find modern objects in the ancient-world paintings and rooms contain stuff you think they should. The mini-games it uses are either mind-bogglingly dull, like one they use a lot where you must trace figures with your mouse, or else they are completely inscrutable, like the other constantly-abused one that demands you put gems in their correct place; I never did figure out how that worked and just skipped it every time. The gem mini-game alone would make me refuse to buy this game; apparently nobody playtested this game before it got released, or its completely useless hint function (a central gem that glows green when a gem is placed correctly--but doesn't tell you which gem that might be out of two that you're manipulating) would have become apparent. The mini-games could have been removed entirely and not only would they not impact game enjoyment negatively, their deletion would greatly increase it. The storyline itself is fascinating and I suspect historically sound. I loved the cutscenes and admired the art at every opportunity; the Hanging Gardens themselves are lovingly and lushly recreated, as was the city. Alas, the game offers very little direction in the way of what route you're supposed to take, so what should be a captivating stroll through another world was maddening and aggravating. When I saw the magnificent introduction to this game I really thought it was going to be one of my favorites. But I can't recommend it at all with such serious limitations, unless a player is in it purely for the visual and sound quality, of course.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh. This HOG was only OK. There wasn't much of a challenge, and I really didn't care for the story line (the cut scenes took way to long to go through!). I got bored really quickly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from so much promise followed by ... disappointment this game transports you back to ancient Babylon in 605 BC. the king, Nebuchadnezzar II and his armies have left to fight a war, leaving the queen, Amytis (whose role you assume in this game) in charge of the city. according to the game developers, an invasion of this vulnerable city is brewing, and only the queen -- you -- can thwart this invasion and protect the city and its inhabitants. graphics: the opening cutscene artwork is gorgeous; detailed, rich, colourful and interesting. all cutscenes after the introduction are static. the hidden objects scenes are numerous but static. unfortunately, HO scenes are filled with random piles of junk, much of which is not period-appropriate (high heeled shoes in ancient Babylon??). some of the items you must find are tiny or blurry, adding to the challenge. there are few puzzles, included almost as an afterthought, and with poorly explained goals -- the biggest challenge these puzzles provide are trying to understand what you are expected to do. scene transitions are static and all dialogue is scripted. the font is difficult to read unless you are playing this game in a darkened room. music and sound effects: although it is repetitious, the music is alright as background sound. minimal sound effects and no voiceovers. nothing remarkable here. storyline: the developers claim there is story in this game, but i was absolutely unable to identify what that story might be. gameplay: there is no tutorial, and there is just one level of play. hints recharge fairly quickly, and puzzles can be skipped. each hidden item collected gives you 10 points but there is an overclick penalty (you lose 10 points). no journal, although a map is provided after you complete several HO scenes. scenes load quickly and there are no cursor freezes. my interaction: one hour demo. i’ve no intention to purchase this game. overall, i have a very mixed opinion of this game. on one hand, the art and historical notes suggest lots of potential, but on the other hand, i was disappointed by the lack of anything of substance beyond the interesting opening cutscenes. i got the impression this game is a rough draft of what the developers may re-design after reading all our comments. if you really love hidden object games, you may enjoy this one because it is almost a purely hidden object game, comprising one HO scene after another, with few puzzles or other distractions. but if you seek something more than HO junkpiles, this game will disappoint you.
