This game is based on the first book of Nora Roberts' "The Bride Quartet" series. All good books. And the game does a surprisingly good job of picking out major parts of the storyline, since I recognized it. Graphics are good, as are the voice-overs, and there is an extensive selection of hidden object scenes. But the hidden objects can be really tiny, really hard to find or identify, and can be tone-on-tone colors like white objects on snow. My other problem is that you only get 5 hints per chapter, and there are several HO scenes in each chapter. So once you use up your hints you are stuck...unless you happen to find the letters V-O-W-S in each scene, for which you will earn 1 hint. But trying to find all four letters can also be difficult. I'm a fan of Nora Roberts, and of the book this game is based upon, but the game just had more frustrations than satisfactions in playing. In this instance, a book in the hand is far better than the mouse.
Ocean Express has great features. It can be played in "relaxed" or "challenging" mode. Score can be shared or not on internet. Photos can be u/l & d/l to use in the game. In the beginning, it's simple tho gets challenging as you level up. Careful not to use too many 1 spots... you'll crash (end) the game & start from the beginning at Lev 1. Some beautiful scenery! Love this game!
