Escape from Paradise
by joelle leonard, Luxembourg - Sep 12th 2008

Marvelous, beautiful graphics, addictive as can be... When can we expect a sequel ? With maybe forming couples, wedding parties and/or other parties to dance, have fun, have babies, see the latter growing up, why not gardening also etc... in case they'll have to stay ? or maybe built a boat to escape ? find a new island with a treasure ... or discover different types of animals to interact with ...

Very addicting game!
by Sky Yoshimura, USA - Sep 11th 2008

If you're the organizing type that likes games like Diner Dash or any of the other service oriented games, you'll probably like this one. Your goal is to serve all of the customers their special (and sometimes weird) orders in a timely fashion. I've been playing since April trying to get perfect scores on both the Story and Expert levels. It's not impossible, but it does take some practice. Each session is relatively short so it's great if you only have a little time available to play.

What a waste of time!
by Sandra Zambon, Luxembourg - Sep 10th 2008

I am very disappointed, it's only embarrassing... Please, sell it much cheaper or better: don't even sell it!

ONE OF THE BEST H/O
by Jeanne Dower, USA - Sep 10th 2008

This is just like Little Shop Treasure 2 and I think it's longer. It's great for a H/O game because of all the re-playability. GREAT GAME. No problems.

Mystery Case Files: Prime Suspects Icon
Best of the bunch!
by Helene Shaw, Canada - Sep 10th 2008

I love all of the MCF games, but I think this one's my favorite! Out of all the seek and find games, I find that MCF games are the leader in their field...

The puzzles in this one are fun!

BETTER THAN TREASURE 2
by Jeanne Dower, USA - Sep 10th 2008

This was similar but better than the last game. Things to find besides the objects are license plates, squirrels and question marks, so lots to do. If you love H/O games this is great because you have so many options for trophies after the game. It's long which makes it worth the money. My only problem was finding the question marks. Even with walkthrough help I can't them all. And you have to be fast.

Archibold's Adventures is Above Average for Adolescents
by Sheila Greenberg, USA - Sep 10th 2008

Archie is is gutsy little guy who, with the help of his trusty skateboard, has to solve numerous puzzles in order to escape Dr. Klumpfus's laboratory. Each puzzle has brief explanations and tips to help you get Archie through the levels. And, while the problem solving skills needed to play this game are well within an adults abilities, younger players should find this game challenging. But everyone will find it fun.

SecuRom DRM Cripples this Game
by Noel Rosenthal, USA - Sep 8th 2008

I was really disappointed when I learned that EA had failed to remove SecuRom from the final release of Spore. This DRM scheme is unfortunately an extreme example of companies treating paying customers like criminals, while the criminals with their DRM free pirated copies get a better overall user experience.

I really wanted to give you $50 EA, but I'm sorry I just can't. Please send EA the right message about DRM and refuse to purchase this game.

ONE OF THE BEST YET
by Jeanne Dower, USA - Sep 8th 2008

This game is fun, delightful, clever and totally absorbing. It's similar to Ankh but much more creative, funny and challenging. It's true that most of the game is done for you with the story line, (beautifully done) and the dialogue which does give you some options but makes it constantly engaging. The graphics are amazing. A lot of the puzzles are difficult I found and could not possibly have finished it without a walkthrough. But if you have the patience I do not have and think outside the box it's possible. Who would think to put a "smoking pipe" on a "bunch of wasps" in a "cereal bowl" on a "ledge" you don't even know is there. Brilliant!! The characters are great and likable so I had fun and found myself smiling and laughing which I've never experienced in a game. I LOVED IT!!!

The game is long which I love because like a good book you can hardly wait to get back to it.

Good game in theory but marred by technical problems!
by Felix von Reiswitz, England - Sep 8th 2008

This game is a great little adventure for those who loved the Monkey Island series of games... Not quite as refined or as brilliant in its humour, but a very nice, entertaining, game nonetheless. Which makes it all the more infuriating when you discover that there is a glitch in the game that means that, if you're unlucky and come across it, you cannot progress beyond a certain point in the game as one of the objects you need is strangely missing. This was a known issue in the windows version and unfortunately appears to have been ported over. Hopefully a patch is forthcoming soon?
