Oh, and if you just don't like HOPS, you can always switch to a mini game to help complete the scenes. The graphics weren't all that bad. This is the newest game in the Bridge to Another World series. For the experienced player, this game doesn't hold much of a challenge.
Music wise, carries the mood of the game very well. The scenes are fairly clear and items are not difficult to find. The hidden object segments and the puzzles during the demo, which was quite short by the way as I finished it in 42 minutes. Each game in this series has a little different story line and they have all been interesting.
It seems like all of the serial games are basically the same. There was never a moment of boredom playing the game. what I like is a good balance between slightly more challenging gameplay elements and easier ones. Bridge to Another World: Escape From Oz is a must-have game for me. Not only is the game full of things to do, it is also beautiful and just what I have been looking for after all the dreary, colorless games that wrapped up in the past 3 months.
The remaining extras are the standard fluff but for new gamers the in-game strategy guide is always a benefit. As always, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story to others to review. The Mini Games are very doable, most are of good length and entertaining. Thanks for the reviews.
Colors are quite nice and bright, very true. The remaining extras are always found in CEs such as a bonus game, strategy guide, etc. The CE version of the game is rather light on extra content although there are morphing objects and some fairly "in your face" collectibles to find. The Collector's Edition is also quite rewarding, it includes a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, a screensaver, soundtracks, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects, and a secret room.
Most of the HOP's offer a small interactive puzzle to solve. Yes, the game will be a buy for me. HOGS: There is a nice variety and I'm truly enjoying them. You're not bored with the same old same old. Most of the time, the game is pretty predictable.
If you are new to HOPA games and not sure about puzzles, then there is a skip button available.
