Other than being visually great, I don't see what all the fuss is about with this game. While I don't like to be hand-held through a game, I also don't like being left completely alone and that is what this game does. You ask for help outside of a hidden object scene and all it does is take you to the map and tell you where you are - wow, THAT was helpful, thanks for nothing! I already knew where I was, but I was standing around like an idiot without a clue as to how to proceed - what fun!! The only saving grace for this game, for me, is the "area cleared" when you're finished in a place. I wish more games had this feature!! Also, there are so many places on the map, yet you can't just jump to a scene, and so I found the navigation frustrating.The voice acting is slow and you can't hurry it along, yet if you don't want to miss the storyline, you have no choice but to sit through it. Nope, not a game I'm glad I spent money on, but will finish it out of principle.
