I guess I have a bit more stick-to-itness than most. Yes the game is very frustrating. The tips and hints buttom isn't really very helpful, the cursor is really sluggish. I had it change to a magnifying glass some how or another after the plane crash in the evening campsite scene. Changed the cursor to a windows cursor and it began to work the usual way. Can't find a walkthrough either. It is frustrating when there are no clues as to what you are suppose to do next. The only upside that i now know I'm not the only one grumbling about this game and it isn't just my older PC and software that is the problem. I am glad there is the skip option for the puzzel parts. Some of them are just beyond me. Yes the small object size is a problem, however I have played other games with that same problem, I just use the hints button more with those. I guess to complete this game I'll just have to continue to sputter throught it.

The graphics aren't bad considering the sizxe, I just wish some of the scenes weren't so dark. That happens with other games too

Why did they even release this? It has to be a filler for BFG or a repackage of a previously released game that didn't go well... First of all, this thing doesn't support my primary monitor unless played in a windowed mode but will play in low res on my second monitor after switching it as my main. If you can't light off a game without messing with the settings, then it probably isn't worth playing.

Then to top it off the HOS are the smallest I've seen in a long time. Although I suffered through the entire game, I should give heads up to prospective buyers to stay away from this one unless you intend to play it on a 9 inch netbook, in which case you won't know what you are clicking on to begin with.

This game might have passed for OK five years ago, but with current advances in game play, this game has the feel of an amateur developing on a stoneage game development kit. Why doesn't marketing bother to check the competition or run a beta test to see if its going to even make it?

Unless you are getting this for free, I will not spend any money to play this. If you don't believe me, try playing the demo.

I see I am not the only one quitting the demo after 15 mns or so ! I could not agree more with everyone of you. There is not much more to add to what you all said already. This game is a disaster, pure and simple. It's not the theme and storyline that I would criticize most in spite of its lack of originality. It's all the rest. Not only are the HOS's unplayable for all the reasons already pointed out in the other reviews, but it is true that the game ALSO suffers from too many glitches. I am desperately trying to think of some feature in that game that would justify one little star. Can't think of anything. Zero star from me in total unanimity with you all.

DISCLAIMER: I only played the free demo.

I agree with Moonwhich, this game deserves ZERO stars. This game has so many problems, I don't know where to begin. The first problem I had was with the cursor; it was very sluggish and slow. It seemed to take a second after I moved my mouse for it to move on the screen. Then there were the sparkles, it seemed that in every room there were two or three objects that sparkled, even after you clicked on them. That got REAL old, REAL fast. But the worst thing about this game were the hidden object scenes. The objects were SO small and SO tiny that I nearly went blind trying to find them. After 30 minutes, my head started to hurt. I just couldn't stand it anymore.

If you are a fan of HOG's, avoid this one like the Plague! You don't even need to bother with playing the trial. Trust me, unless you want a migraine in your immediate future, wait until tomorrow to try a game.

I would give this one zero stars if I could. The storyline isn't new (archaeology/lost grandfather) and once you do get into the HOGs, it's nearly impossible to find a good many of them because they are way too small to see. Had they been a bit bigger, it might have been a great game. Deleted it after the first few minutes and will not buy it. Save your money, ladies and gents!

I have been hooked on Hidden Object games for a long time and this is one of the worst I have seen. The objects are very tiny and hard to find; playing the tutorial at the beginning gave me fits -- find this item brought up an arrow, but the arrow was pointing off into space above what I want looking for. The cursor would also not access the Hint button at the bottom of the screen; no matter how hard I tried to move to the bottom hint button, the cursor would not go there. There is a magnifying glass available to zoom in, I assume, but since it doesn't work, who knows what it's for!

If you like Hidden Object games, there are plenty of great ones out there, but not this one. Check out the forum of the BF site -- I only saw one so so review, out of four pages of reviews, and the rest were negative.

Another ho-hum "I have to save my grandfather" archaeological storyline. What really detracts from the enjoyment of this game: the objects are very small and ill-defined. My remarks are based on playing the demo version. I quit after the first hidden object scene.
