There was never a moment of boredom playing the game. I just don't get what's up with the cartoonish graphics. Map: The map tells where the player is and has the special mark when you have something to do there. There is usually a puzzle, sometimes two, to solve. The Mini Games are in abundance.
The remaining extras are always found in CEs such as a bonus game, strategy guide, etc. If you prefer the CE version of games the The Unseen Fears: Outlive has collectibles, artifacts and morphing objects to be found. I found this game surprisingly fun and interesting. The puzzles are more challenging, and they are smartly integrated into the storyline.
The remaining extras are the standard fluff but for new gamers the in-game strategy guide is always a benefit. I'm really liking what I'm seeing from this new game. Mini Games: A nice variety here too. The one challenging one to me was driving the airship. All in all, I find The Unseen Fears: Outlive to be an excellent game and a must-have addition to my gaming library.
But if you want an easy, funny game then this game is perfect for you. The hidden object segments and the puzzles during the demo, which was quite short by the way as I finished it in 42 minutes. This game has fairly nice graphics, but could be a bit clearer. Don't forgot to look for the Morphing Object in each scene.
Not only are there a lot of puzzles but some are different and some are challenging. The voice overs seems to be recorded by some really bored actors and the soundtrack doesn't excel either. Oh, and if you just don't like HOPS, you can always switch to a mini game to help complete the scenes. HOGS: There is a nice variety and I'm truly enjoying them. You're not bored with the same old same old.
We played The Unseen Fears: Outlive on the easiest difficulty mode, rarely skipped any puzzles, and completed the game in around four hours. Graphics are really nice in this game, though, just like the animations. For some the puzzles might seem very easy but I am guessing that most gamers enjoy puzzles that are not "rip your hair out" difficult.
