This was just the perfect game. Had everything I was looking for. A storyline, a mixture of hidden object scenes and thinking games. Once I figured out how to use the map...(Silly me) it went a lot faster then having to click back all the time.

Not everything is obvious and I had to peek at a few walk throughs to figure one or two things out, but over all it was a good time waster. My son enjoyed watching me play it and helped me as well.

I will be buying other titles of this as well. I really enjoyed it.

I must say this game is a pretty high quality hidden object gamee. The graphics are sharp and the voice acting is pretty good. When in full screen mode tehre are black bars on the sides of the window so keep that in mind if that sort of thing bothers you.

For the hidden object scenes you might eventually notice you're finding the same objects, just placed in a new picture but it's not that big of a deal. Tip: and awl is like an ice pick, I still don't actulaly know what it is.

In terms of puzzles there is a good variety although one or two are hard to tell what the game wants you to do but luckily there is a skip button.

Plot and storylinewise it's an interesting concept. I did not play the first one yet (I played them in the wrong order doh! I wondered why the main character referenced a time before this game...) so I'm not sure if this is covered there but I would like to explore the house a little more, while it would be boring to have the common typical, kitchen, dining room, etc I think there was potential to do really crazy rooms that had themes. While the different country aspect sort of covered that it didn't feel like part of the house.

Overall it's a nice game but it feels like the ending was a little rushed. The bonus chapter literally ends without any final dialogue which is dissapointing.

For what it is and does I'd say 9/10

Fun HOG game. The only real problem I have with these game is the lack of a good screen resolution. 1680*1050 is my screen res and these games does not go up that high. So everything is a little hazy looking and not as clear as it could be. Other then that the graphics are good and sound and story are both very interesting.

The more I play the game the more I am irate that they have pictures inside the paper clues you find on the ground. They are supposed to be historical documents yet they have full color drawn pictures on them. I think it was a mistake to include them. It draws you out of the game. Should be in black and white and look more like a sketch other then a full color perfectly drawn figures. I am still enjoying my time with the game.

i just finished the main game. Nice ending. Now onto the bonus mission. The bonus mission ending was strange and abrupt. No The End just a very short cut scene and it goes back to the main menu. Strange.

While a little less accomplished than the Family Secrets entry, this is still a wonderfully atmospheric and reasonably satisfying hidden object/puzzle game. It's thin on story compared to the aforementioned title - you basically just go through a series of slightly exotic "other worlds" to enable the finale - and the ending holds a significance which its scant content fails to live up to, but for the right price it's a good buy for genre fans.
