3.0 out of 5 stars Regurgetated Graphics from old "I Spy" Games. September 7, 2006
By A Gamer
Verified Purchase
All the screens in this "I spy" game are taken from "I Spy - Spooky Mansion", "I Spy - Treasure Hunt", and "I Spy - Fantasy". There are thirteen file folders on the main menu screen which represent thirteen 'mystery cases' containting anywhere from 3 to 6 screens each that you may choose at random. There are no original graphics in this one, so if you have these previous versions, which are all excellent, then this one may be a bit of a let down. However, If you are like me and loved all the other I Spy games and want a little more, then this will deliver.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing for Avid Fans :-( November 16, 2006
Verified Purchase
My five year old son finished this ENTIRE game in one day! We have nearly all of the I Spy books and all but one of the I Spy software titles, so my son was expecting a greater challenge with this new software. When the game ended--and he told me he had beat ALL of it without my help--I thought he just clicked the wrong button or something. But, yep, he finished it! This would be a good choice for someone who wants to 'sample' the I Spy software, but for the avid fan, this is going to be a big disappointment. This series is SO popular with my son's age group, it's unfortunate that Wick and Marzollo are not creating new photos instead of rehashing the old ones. New clues are okay, but I think I've memorized all of these pictures!

1.0 out of 5 stars Mom of I spy fans November 9, 2006

This is not as good as the other I Spy games. It does not let you return at harder levels as I Spy Fantasy and I Spy Treasure Hunt do. It uses many of the same pictures as the other games.

However, the searching for clues to solve the mysteries is fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in I Spy Mystery May 16, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
My afterschool kids and I all love the I SPY computer games but were disappointed in I SPY MYSTERY because it is made up of puzzles that are in all of the other I SPY games. There was nothing new. Also, the game cost $19.99 plus shipping and I was disappointed to see it the following week in Target for $9.99. The overall layout of the game as far as them being separated into "files" was fun but we just wish the puzzles had been new.

4.0 out of 5 stars My thoughts on I Spy Mystery January 9, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This was a very interesting game, even if it was a repeat of past games.

I would rather have a new game that is all new, with new I Spy areas.

Beings it was a repeat, it was fairly easy.

I just got this I Spy Game and it's the same puzzles and same pictures as one of the other I spy games. If you pay the money, they should give you a completely new game! It's a rip off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Top drawer medley of I Spy picture puzzles April 1, 2008
By A. Ryan
I am so glad that I bought this computer game for my kids before reading the reviews on this site!

Look, we don't have a lot of computer games and we had just recently discovered the I Spy books about 1 year ago. We loved them so much that I do believe we'd read nearly all of them before I saw this game for sale. This excellent little collection of picture puzzles is not repeated from the books, so to us they're all new. It was like a breath of fresh air from a parent's point of view; games without that constant, annoying background music, the kids can play them quietly and actually learn something. The boys love it even more than I; they have been begging to play I Spy Mystery every day after their homework is done for the past week since they got it.

The game is simple. You select one of 13 folders, each is its own mini mystery with a theme (Mystery Meal, Locked Gate, Skeleton Key, etc). You have 3-5 "pictures" in each folder to find the hidden objects, and when you have solved all of the pictures, you are given clues to solve the final mystery. this involves a sharp eye, but also logic, good recall for details, and problem solving skills. Kids will also learn to employ multiple meanings for a word in their search, such as "bat".

I Spy Mystery, like all the books, is a fun and low pressure way to build the brain. I get caught up in it with them from time to time -- I've even added my name to the player file so I don't mess up their scores when I sneak a round. And now that we are intrigued by some of the folders, we will make an effort to find the other I Spy games. Thank God for Scholastic!

My six year old loves these books and computer games. The game allows you to solve several mysteries and would be good for a first grader.
