 Get it for the PC

The hidden object type of game is a great concept for the wii, I have a few for the PC but got this for the wii mainly to play it on a bigger screen, I was so disappointed, the list of items that come up for you to find are really small and look out of focus because of it, at one point I couldn't actually make out what some of the items said. Due to the graphics on the wii I found that the rooms you had to find items in also seemed out of focus making it totally impossible to make items out let alone find them. Until they master the graphics and type set for hidden object games for the wii I strongly recommend these are still better on the PC.

 a very good hidden object game

i myself really enjoyed this game and found the graphics suitable enough to enjoy. there are a few minor niggles tho. 1 of them being some of the items in the list can be a bit hard to make out but not really enough to spoil the game as you can use the hint to help you get through a chapter. the other niggle is hardly 1 at all to be honest but some of the hidden objects are a bit tricky to find but if they were easy to spot that wud spoil the game as there wud be no point in it being a hidden object game, and as before the freindly hint system is on offer to help get you through a chapter if your short on time. i thouroughly enjoyed every chapter of this brilliant hidden object game.
