    A Step Backward  
    Sunny Sunny 


    I dislike this game the worst of all the Hidden Expedition series. It is a step backwards in a number of areas.

    Hidden Expedition has in the past been about adventure, with unusual and/or varied gameplay. This game has settled for the standard HOP game of its time, with its lists and its locations on a map for you to move between.

    The HOPs are not at all different than a dozen other games, and I swear the graphics were better in the first game of the series. I couldn’t play this in full screen at all, and had trouble with it in windowed – and it just doesn’t look as good even on that much smaller screen.

    You do get an option to choose a word in the list and get a silhouette, which I like. And there are beetles to collect for hints. But it’s not enough to make up for the lack of anything specifically interesting.

    There are some puzzles in each chapter/level. What I saw was not bad, I must admit. And the whole game looks more sophisticated. But it isn’t really at all.

    As I say, I just didn’t like it. It is not at all in the character of the other games in the series.

    I Don't Recommend This Game!
