    Greed 2: Forbidden Experiments (IHOG)

    This is a standalone storyline.

    Options include Widescreen Correction, Custom Cursor, and separate sliders for Music, SFX and Voices.

    Choice of Normal, Hard or Detective Mode with clearly marked differences.

    Hidden object scenes will each be played twice, and in two different modes:  By list (sometimes with light interaction) and by silhouette.  Like in the first game, HOS can be skipped entirely once the SKIP meter has filled (provided that you're not playing on Detective Mode).  You will find anywhere from one to three items to help you at each of these scenes.

    There are two collectibles during gameplay:

    • 10 Oracle Emblems
    • 9 pages from Sofia's diary

    The pages are snippets of background story, and won't take you long to read.  These are kept in your tabbed journal - one for YOUR journaling, and one for Sofia's pages.

    Most of the PUZZLES are variations of the exact same premise - turn the dials to bring whatever to the same level, and each dial may affect more than one level.  Again, puzzles are skippable.

    HINTS during the adventure portion are more mainstream this time - use the hint button and you'll either get a directional arrow or it will indicate a place for you to interact.

    The story once again left my super-analytical mind frustrated, but most of the plot holes and logic issues might not occur to everyone, so I won't mention specifics - no spoilers! ;D

    The artwork is nothing spectacular, but it was nice.  The protagonist is probably the prettiest lead I've ever seen in an IHOG, and she's intelligent to boot - always a plus! Okay  I even liked the voice-overs, especially our leading lady!

    I played all of the hidden object scenes and puzzles, though I did use the hint button during the adventure portion.  All told the game took me just over two hours to complete.

    Despite my irritation at the logic, this was a relaxing game to pass a couple of hours, and I'd recommend it to fans of the genre.
