Great, crystal clear graphics w/ realistic sounds (waves on shore or against boat, wind, etc.) Somewhat "thinky", but not impossible to figure out. I used hints to go to next location, but pretty much knew what to do when I got there. If I had a faster pc, probably wouldn't have used them, but I did it to save time. Great story line, & though there seemed to be more advertisements than usual, it was an unusually lengthy game. But not so much so you got bored. Innovative & plentiful minigames. I just used the additional ad time for coffee/soda breaks, potty time, etc. I rated "kid friendly" but too "thinky" for little ones. I got it as a daily free offering, but it is a GREAT game at members prices. KUDOS to the makers of this one !! Been a HO fan for years & this is one of the very best.
