Customer Reviews
Hidden Expedition: Smithsonian™ Castle Collector's Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game! Lots of variety in this game, always doing something different with the exception of a few boring hops. Puzzles were fun. Game was long, bonus game not so long. The only reason I buy the CE is for the bonus game and extras in game play not the extras like movies, wallpaper blah blah, who cares! I just want a nice long bonus game since the price is almost double, come on! Anyhow, the game as a whole was great! Excellent story and fun. Definitely recommend the game, but I don't think the CE is worth the extra dough so I have to not recommend this CE version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST GAME I'VE EVER PLAYED!!! This is my favorite game of all time and I've played plenty. Developers, please take note of all the positive reviews!! Why are they positive? SUPERIOR graphics, sound and story. I get tired of all the dark gloom and doom HOGS and need a change. This game has beautiful ambient light that simply transports you into each and every room. You want to linger on every detail but you can't wait to see what's behind the next door! More games like this please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Hidden Expedition so far I like all the Hidden Expedition games, but this one is my favorite thus far. The graphics are top-notch, the mini-games are interesting (though some of them could be more challenging), and the HOPs are varied enough to be interesting (and there aren't too many of them). The storyline is also a bit different, like most of the previous HE games--there is a disappearance at the beginning, but as it turns out, finding the missing person is *not* your goal! Of course, there are lots of great Smithsonian facts included in the game and the extras, which is fun for a museum geek like me. And even the closing credits are fun to read! I love it when I find a game so meticulously and lovingly designed. As I say, it could be a bit more challenging in places, but that's my only (small) complaint. I hope I can get this one on my iPad at some point!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adventurous Chase For Diamonds This was very exciting to play. Game play was extremely fun, I literally couldn't wait for the next puzzle and HOPA scene so I could win more achievements. Entire game was more than fun, scenes are beautifully done. I must admit that I finished playing the whole game in less time than I thought it'd take me to get to the final scene. Keep making these amazing games!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED IT!! Nice long game with lots of extras!! I just completed the whole entire CE version even the bonus game. I loved it!! So much fun!! Lots of extra stuff!! You get a souvenir room when you complete the bonus game and it lets you go back to each room to collect a new hidden item!! You collect a hidden item throughout the game, well I missed a couple and it let me go back to the specific room to find it, I really liked that feature!!! There are morphing items, but they are only in the HOP scenes, but its ok because it has a thing that tells you if there is one in the scene and lets you know when you find it and how many more there are left to find in the game!! You also earn achievements throughout the game, that makes it fun, you can play a certain way to earn an achievement!! The graphics were really great!! The sounds were good (I ALWAYS turn the music off, first thing when I start ANY game) So I cannot really comment on how the music was. The game ran really well with no hiccups at all!! I could sit here and tell you a million more things I love about this game and there a lot more features that I have not mentioned, so I think if you like HOP/S - adventure games...get this one!! This game makes me want to take a trip to the Smithsonian Castle and check it out my self!! I kind of feel like I have already been there through this game!! Oh yea one last thing....this is NOT A GHOST STORY!! The story line is very refreshing, I was wanting to play something that was not about something haunted and ghosts and all that stuff that so many games are about. Just one more reason this game is AWESOME!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the last 3 in Series I really enjoy these games. Excellent graphics, I like all the achievements you can collect and the story line. Also educational at the same time with the fact cards that are optional reading but worth it. I recommend the last 3 in this series. Great entertainment and relaxing fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great and interesting game I find this game really refreshing because there are a lot of interesting facts. I really enjoyed playing this game :) The game has much to offer: interesting characters, nice sound and music, good storyline, nice graphics, great achievements... If you like history you will definitely enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent game! Really well done all around. The art work was great, the story line interesting from beginning to end. There was something to learn every time I turned around (and that is really worth something - loved it!). I tend to get a little tired of HOP - my issue, not the game devs - they did a great job keeping it interesting and clever. I was leaning toward a 4 star rating and then I got to the credits. Don't cheat yourself, watch them all the way through, they're worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Quit Playing! I earned all but two achievements on this one. No glitches or other problems. Great graphics, voiceovers, music, and puzzles, although the puzzles were on the easy side. I didn't skip any. It could have been just a little more challenging but the fun factor made it a 5-star game for me. I pretty much played this one straight through. Had a hard time stopping to eat! I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best HOGA In Recent Months This is a review of the CE which I played all the way through. You are a HELP Investigator called to the Smithsonian after strange power failures. As you begin to investigate it becomes clear that time travel is involved. You find yourself looking for someone in the Smithsonian of the past. The graphics are good, the sound is non-intrusive but what I really like was that the story actually made sense and the HOGs and puzzles led the story forward. There were the usual puzzles, but every variety with little repeats and well done. The HOGs varied also from find pieces for an item, find a list of items and multiple lists in one HOG. The morphing objects were in the HOGs, but not all of them so it made that more interesting as well. Finally, when the bonus chapter is complete you can go back and replay the HOGs, find the souvenirs and collectibles you might have missed. I played the game in just over 4 hours and spent another happy hour on the extra's. Altogether, one of the best games produced recently.
