Date published: I just did not like it at all. I played about half of the game and could not stand to do any more. There were no voice overs--you had to read all the dialogue. I enjoyed reading the journal, and normally that is something I consider a chore I struggled with this game for about three hours and threw in the towel. Hints refill quickly and there appears to be no timer or penalties for wrong clicks, which is great!

  1. But try the demo and see for yourself. Otherwise an Okay game to waste a day holding down the sofa. I played about 45 minutes through the trial and will definitely be buying Antique Shop: Books of Souls. In the first scene you will acquire a lantern and a magnifying glass that can be used in any scene at any time by left clicking on the one you want to use and then right clicking to use that item and you will use them alot This is a story about Emily, she inherits her Uncle's Antique Shop and discovers a Book Of Souls. HOG locations correspond to locales meaningful to the people whose names are in the book, which is also your notebook.

  2. I did not have to use the lantern or the maginafing glass at all. The music would put you to sleep as well as having to read the story line. The magnifier doesn't work that well, but I liked the challenge of finding hidden objects.

  3. The story in the book is so intrieguiing that replay is a "must" to get all the characters and places sorted out. No one else want it. The graphics were no where near clear enough to be able to see small things clear across a room or way down a street. It feels like it was a rush job.

  4. Just one HO scene after another with mediocre graphics doesn't do it for me. Emily recognizes her uncle's handwriting and wonders why he would mark up such an attractive antique making it unsellable. Give it a try for yourself. It's nice to find a basic game once in a while that still presents some challenges and enjoyment.

  5. Story is good but the rest is horrid. I am a HOG lover and thought this was a fun game. I will not be purchasing. No voice-overs, all text.

  7. The graphics are beautiful and the background music is pleasant with a sort of medieval Celtic New-Age melody that loops, but is not intrusive or distracting. I did have problems with a slow-moving cursor at first, but I went to the options menu and moved the arrow all the way to the left and the cursor moved and responded normally after that. As she starts to feel a connection with the souls of the book you travel to different locations telepathically. Also it gives you a lantern for seeing into dark areas again this was no help because it does not seem to work, either. I did like that they integrated a word search into the mix of levels but still was boring.

  8. I did like the music. There is nothing wrong with this game. This really had none of it.

  9. I would have had to be asking for a refund! But try the demo and see for yourself. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by ninja from For die hard hidden object lovers This game is for people who like finding treasure needle from a haystack.
