Another Great Installment

I have been enjoying the Hidden Expedition series from the very beginning and they keep getting better. The story lines have been very interesting and enjoyable. I highly recommend this latest release.

Challenging & lengthy game
November 28, 2011

This game from Floodlight & BFG has some wonderful puzzles, many of which are different from the usual pipes, sliders, etc & some of them are extremely difficult but there is a skip button if you get too frustrated. In addition the hidden objects are also a good mix of different ways to solve, for instance you may have to find four items but have to solve a puzzle within the scene to open a box to get another word list. The graphics are crystal clear & the artwork is stupendous, the scenes are so well drawn. There is a voiceover during the cut scenes & you can skip the dialogue but try not to be tempted as some of it is amusing. The scenes filled my widescreen nicely. You will get a journal which tells the story, has clues & gives a task list; in addition the task list can be found on the inventory bar. Sometimes it can be quite hard to figure out what to do though so I did quite a lot of tracking to & from scenes, there is no map. The hint button is not available in scenes where there is no action to perform. There are two modes of play; casual with lots of sparkles, you start with 5 hints & they recharge in 20 seconds or expert, no sparkles for 15 to 20 seconds & then you get a glint which gets brighter if you have not clicked on an item. Here you get 3 hints recharging in 60 seconds. The music wasn?t very memorable & rather repetitive & the background noises were in keeping with the game.

Did not think I would like this

Honestly! I first completed HE: Devils Triangle and at first was not certain I would like because it is not your typical HOG. YOU have to figure things out a lot (same with this game) without Hint, without a map - I just had to check the walkthrough fairly often on Devils Triangle, got better on this game though - but still had to check the walkthrough off and on. The Hint never seems to run out of hints and are always available when you have a HOG area AND you can bypass mini-games and instructions are there when you click the ?. So you are not totally alone. Sometimes the HOG are fairly easy, others times definitely not easy. There are numerous different type mini-games - again some fairly easy, some not so much. Was a challenge. - I did not really notice if this game was shorter than the first but I am so glad I purchased this one when I bought the Devils Triangle because this .. Uncharted... Completes the story. Well worth buying. - And now I will probably buy more games like this - even though can be frustrating at times.... cause "I want to know now!" lol

This was amazing and i never played a hidden exebition game I didn't like. It is really challenging and I can play it thousands of time without getting bored

Fantastic game!

I bought the CE and regret it because the bonus game play was ridiculously short. I loved the puzzles, so creative, artistic and fun with lots of variety. Great graphics with the exception of the underwater scene - too muddy and hard to see the objects. Love the whimsical writing and comments, newspapers.... I was laughing all the way through. Disappointing end, they should have had the giant fish jump up and swallow Undertow whole!

Good sequel

I enjoyed playing the game. I played the others and this tied right in to the others. Had a good storyline. Moved around looking for items to use and the HOG were easy to find.

Great Hidden Object Game with a Twist

Loved this game. Now ans then had to get aid from the walkthrough. Was definitely wort the $6.99 it was quite long for a regular game. Really give it thumbs up.

This game is the sequel to 'Hidden Expeditions: Devil's Triangle', and picks right up where the other leaves off. Play is great, flows well, and is challenging. I really enjoyed playing this game, especially in the expert mode. Graphics are good, and the puzzles are interesting.

What a pretty game.

The story was a bit odd, but is that what I got it for? ;) I have two complaints...Some of the seek and find objects are very hard to find, because they are very light, and some of the scenes are pretty big, packed full of items to search through. The good thing is, there are an extra amount of hints available. The second would be that the arrow that directs you back a scene, or towards a scene is very clumsy, often times interfering with the inventory bar. But all in all, a lovely game. Very pretty, and the puzzles are head scratching, but then..Aha!
