JESSICA – Secret of the Caribbean

Jud’s Game Rating:

Graphics ***  Player participation (PP) ****  Satisfaction Factor (SF) ***

Frustration Factor (FF) **  Fair Play (FP) ***  Tedium Factor **

This game is okay, but after the initial clear Graphics, they became murky for the Hidden Object (HO) sites, with an occasional exception.  So I got fed up really quickly with trying to find HOs in the gloom. TF  Also these were scaled to fit the scene, re apparent distance from the viewer – always a mistake.  The ones close up are okay but those in the distance are to small to see.   Some were almost hidden off the screen – always a bad idea as it is not FP.

The Jigsaws were good, and frequent, but some of the other Puzzles were obscure, poorly defined so that some were impossible to play – cut and join wires is not enough of a directive if the tools provided don’t move them!  The comic-strip story was incidental to the game and didn’t really provide continuity.

Could have been good, but thumbs down from me.
