I Liked It!
It was different than your usual hidden object game but still good. It was surprisingly long, had an interesting story with nice graphics, plus extra "from beyond" items to search for throughout the game, and with achievements to shoot for. Oh, and so you don't think you've missed some like I first thought, be aware that there's not the full 56 objects to find that were in the original pc game, but there's at least 50 to find. Also, it is the kind of HOG where you find pieces of items shown in pictures at the bottom of your screen, not full items, and not items listed by words. If you use the integrative map to move around from place to place it makes navigating the game much easier. It's not up there with The Lake House that recently came out, but it's also $3.99 compared to Lake House's $6.99, which in my opinion both games are fairly priced for what you get. But yeah, I liked it and definitely recommend it!
Ghost Ship Gets 5 Stars
There should be many more games like this! Great game, not the same old list of random items to look for in a specified section that is just a big pile of stuff crammed there. The originality of finding "fragmented" items then using some of those items to complete your tasks is much more thought provoking as well as entertaining. BF please start turning out some of these sequels, because once you get hooked on fragment finding its too hard to go back to list after list. The Dark Parables are still my favorite, their gorgeous graphics have no rivals, but this is right up there when it comes to enjoyment! More, more, more!!
First let me star by saying I'm a serious gamer and buy mostly everything Big Fish puts out... Some games are absolutely brilliant, the heavy hitters like Stray Souls, Lake House, Dire Grove, The Shiver and Surface series, Haunted Hotel: Charles Dexter Ward, my favorite sleeper because of the amaaaaazing cut scenes, and Enigmatis are in a class of their own. Outstanding in almost every way conceivable .
... And then there are the fillers.
The 'in between" games as I call them, that fill the space between the major releases... and this was one of them.
I played this game for about 20 minutes and just deleted it altogether when I realized I wasn't remotely engaged or interested in the outcome.... of just about anything.
One of my biggest pet peeves is when games are too dark or when they are waaaaay too small and you can't see the objects you're looking for so you randomly start tapping your IPad because there's no penalty or frankly you just don't care. It always baffles me when developers make this choice in adventure games... It just does't make any sense to me.
Buy hey, this is just one opinion...
2 stars but only because I want to continue to support Big Fish.
