5.0 out of 5 stars Great HOG game September 7, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A very enjoyable diversion. They did a nice job telling the story of The Great Gatsby within the confines of the game -- the story moved forward smoothly and made sense even though very condensed. I especially like that they used actual text from the book. And that they took breaks from the HO finding from time to time to fill in the narrative. It was also nice that there were some different kinds of objects that were appropriate to the period.

First the bad - it's not a hard HOG. The objects are generally fairly easy to find. The hints are liberal and I never got an over-clicking penalty. Oh, and the mini-games are incredibly lame -- but there aren't that many so it doesn't really matter. Mostly, they're there to make some bonus points.

That being said, this game offered a couple of innovative changes from most HOGs that were great. One is the use of some motion HO scenes -- ie, you're in a car driving along while finding hidden objects, or following a camera pan along some scenery during some narration. Pretty cool.

The best new thing was the introduction of a library/trophy room. The library houses your achievement trophies, but you can also spend points to add artwork, furniture, lighting, etc to it. You gain points from gameplay, and can earn bonus points by collecting certain books and finding letters to spell words. Very satisfying to end the game having a look at all the trophies and a nicely decked out library -- it adds some replay value, too, if you didn't get everything the first time through.

Overall, a very fun game. Probably the only HOG I'd actually play again.

5.0 out of 5 stars More like a dream than a game August 18, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Beautiful graphics, evocative period music, hidden items that are at least plausible for the time period and sometimes part of the story, strong voice acting and narrative straight from the book--all these add up to an emotional adventure, more like dreaming the book than playing a game. For me, it was a more visceral experience than watching a movie. If you love reading The Great Gatsby, I think you will like this. If you want mysteries, adventure, challenging puzzles and won't be happy with anything else, don't buy it.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Loved this game. It has beautiful scenery & was fun to do. So many of these hidden object games are scarey & dark for some reason. I like the beautiful or mystery type better. If you like pretty scenery & a game not too hard to do, this will be your cup of tea!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, non-violent, adult game August 30, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game for all-but particularly for adults. It is even more enjoyable if you have read "The Great Gatsby." It integrates hidden object, mini-puzzles,and a room building experience. The visual graphics, acting, and music do a great job of re-creating "The Gatsby Era." Let's have more intelligent, non-violent, adult games!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great graphics and music but little challenge March 6, 2011
Verified Purchase
I purchased this game after downloading and playing the free trial. The graphics are beautiful and the music is lovely and soothing. The hidden-object action is fairly simple. There is no mystery to solve. As others have pointed out, the game is simply another retelling of the story so many of us know from the movie and classic novel.

The game, steeped in jazz-age graphics and music, was a nice change from the dark, paranormal-based hidden object games I have been playing and (mostly) enjoying. I loved it. At first. I finished it, but it got old well before the end. It just wasn't very challenging, and it didn't hold my interest for long. If I-play releases a follow up based on another classic story, I hope they add variety and challenge to the beautiful graphics and music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh -- Yawn, highly over-rated November 11, 2010
Verified Purchase
This was not an exciting game at all. The locations and objects were repetitive through-out. It was easy and only about 1 1/2 hours of play time. Kudos to the programmers for trying to find a way to combine classic literature with a game, but it did not work for me. I like challenging games that include puzzles and mini-games that make me think. With all the strong reviews, I was expecting something like Dire Grove or the like. This was your very basic seek and find game. Yes, the graphics were nice and the story brought bake memories of freshman English Lit classes, but the game was just very average. Don't waste your money unless you LOVED the Great Gatsby book. I'd recommend Mystery Case Files Return to Dire Grove and the Salem Witch Trials.

Let me start by saying that before the Movie - The Great Gatsby, there was a book called The Great Gatsby written by a great novelist whose name was F. Scott Fitzgerald, he is dead now. This book is one of the best books in modern literature. This game is based on the book. There are excerpts throughout the game that are read and there are characterizations from 'the book.'

I enjoyed this game very much. The music is soothing and relaxing. The game is fun. There are some twists in the seek and find game such as finding letters to make 'words' from 'the book,' cleaning up a party room, typing game that includes typing words from the book, driving the car down the street, making a pot of tea, arranging flowers and so forth. The graphics are really great and they capture some great scenes and locations from the story. The game captures the time period and the story very well as the story is read at times by Nick the narrator.

The download was fast and easy and I was playing the game within minutes so there is no hassle with buying it from Amazon and putting it on your computer, just becareful what operating system you have and that the requirements match your computer.

For a relaxing game that is interesting and fun with great graphics and great music based upon a great book this one is fabulous. For the price it's not outrageously long but you can enjoy some time playing it and capturing some of the nuance from the time period and F. Scott's book. Fun!

Graphics are a bit amateurish, giving me the impression this was an earlier game. However, I did enjoy playing it anyway. I would recommend it.
