    At Last! A Few Innovations!
    Sunny Sunny Sunny
    BASED ON DEMO

    I really am not a fan of this series. Big City Adventures are strictly QUANTITY over QUALITY. If I’m going to pay the same price as I would for one of the many spectacular HOPAs there are now available, I think it’s fair to expect a similar level of quality in graphics, game design, etc. from the HOGs on offer. What is preventing the inclusion of CUT SCENES, HIGH QUALITY GRAPHICS and VARIETY from finding its way into HOGs? And I like my HO games, even the PURE HOGs, to have some excitement, mystery, or at least PURPOSE.

    This latest instalment does not yet show much in the way of improvements, but at least it does show SOME. The FORMULA is the same as it is for all the BCA games. The family go on holiday to a BIG CITY. There follows 3 VISITS EACH to 20 or so apparently randomly selected HO SCENES. These SCENES are GRAPHICALLY mediocre – although better here than in the previous games. Yes, they are BRIGHT & COLOURFUL, but they are COPY & PASTE graphics, overcrowded and objects are often too small.

    One of the innovations I like is that within each SCENE there is now a ZOOM SCENE where 3 or 4 objects can be found. It’s the first step towards genuine INTERACTIVITY and variety we’ve seen from this series. The other CHANGE FOR THE BETTER is many more varieties of PUZZLES than in the past. Although they are still simply a transition from one chapter to another, and still fairly simple, it gives them a level of interest than the old games didn’t have.

    The game still includes those OTHER FEATURES most popular with players. The game is TIMED (but you have the option now of UNTIMED), there are POINTS, COLLECTIBLES, ACHIEVEMENTS & UNLOCKABLE replays.

    There is definitely improvement here, but this game is still as long way short of the quality I look for in a HO Adventure. But it will be a treat for those who love the series.

    I recommend this game!

    I have a few of the BCA games, for when I'm in a mood for a straight hidden object game, but I find the sound FX are too loud in all their games.

    BCA: Tokyo - I gave up playing because the hidden objects were so tiny it was giving me an eye ache & a headache.

    My SiL absolutely adores the Big City games, and replays them over and over again.  This one was stellar timing, as my brother and his family had JUST moved to the Tokyo area when it was released!
