I guess the title says it all, I should have taken the time to read the reviews. I selected the game purely based on the subject - which I have a great interest in. I will also admit that I didn't even make it through the whole game, I was actually hoping that at any moment the ship would sink and I would be done. From the beginning, the whole thing makes no sense. I kept thinking, "What does it want me to do?" and "What is the point of this?" The characters are not at all pleasant or interesting, in fact I would label them as downright annoying and ridiculous. You really never have an idea of what you are supposed to be looking for and the few mini games that I played did not make much sense at all. My eyesight is not the best, but by no means am I blind (I love HOG's) but I really struggled to find the pieces that I was supposed to be looking for...a combination of them being ridiculously hard to see as well as not knowing really what I was supposed to be looking for in the first place. The way you move through the game by using the deck map was very basic and the screens were "fixed" as in you could not pan around. I'm all for casual, hidden object games with a mystery or historical theme, but this was just a total let down.

The puzzles were fun. Not too hard to figure out. The most trouble I had was with Georgie's ball game. And I needed a little help with mixing the husband's drink.
I liked the option to skip puzzles. But I think there should have been something to make players not want to skip them. Some kind of point system, or a better ending, depending on how many puzzles you solved.
