Grandfather has been arrested and it is up to you to find out why. Now that may seem to be a true adventure, it actually is not. It is just a hidden object game with a story. But a very good one. The main plus is the great graphics, which certainly put you in the right mood. They are beautifully made and there are lots of them. Only few scenes are being revisitid, most are brand new, each time! The quality of the HOG games themselves is also very good. Nothing too difficult, but not easy either. Some objects are collected and you have to use them to open up stuff, or something like that.
The mini games are well made and fit the story line and the HOG scenes wonderfully. But some are too easy, alas. And as this is a mixture of mini games like usual, they also include minigames that may not appeal to you at all. There is one I liked: -shoot villains, but don't shoot innocent people-, but it is far too slow. The story is partially done with speech, partially without. A rather weird thing, if you ask me. But the voice acting is fine. Collecting the lost items sometimes is a matter of sheer luck, not really my cup of tea, as you have really no idea what you are looking for.
I really like hog's, so it is 4 stars for me. If you are only somewhat interested in hog's, this game may turn out to be too boring for you.
