Overall Time Paradox is a somewhat enjoyable game, typical of the Mortimer Beckett series. The downside, and the reason I gave it 4 stars, is you have to use the hint button way to much in order to complete each level. This makes playing the game slightly annoying and takes a lot of the fun out of it too. With Spooky Manor I never found myself frustrated, it was an enjoyable relaxing game you could walk through...Time Paradox is much more difficult when it comes to finding all the pieces. Be prepared to use the hint button a lot, and to Google for tips on how to complete some levels.
First off let's start out with the fact Mortimer Beckett games are not rocket science, they are fun quality games with fabulous graphic backgrounds. The reason I purchased the Time Paradox is because I loved the first game in the series--Spooky Manor Mortimer Beckett and the Secrets of Spooky Manor [Download], which I highly recommend. The key difference between Spooky Manor and Time Paradox is the interaction factor. There was more interaction between characters and their respective scenes--graphic movements and story lines, and I even liked the ghost that would fly around if you made too many bad clicks.
Time Paradox is more difficult, and there were a few times I found myself stuck trying to solve a puzzle, to the point I would just quit the game and try again later. The Hint bottle reloads fast and you will use it often---I never had to use hints with Spooky Manor, there seemed to be a rhyme and reason for how items were dispersed and puzzles were solved in Spooky Manor. While the scenes are beautiful, details are much more difficult to see/find because they are darker. I had to tilt my screen forward often to help lighten the image background.
I like the added levels--I wish Spooky Manor had been this long--but so far the story line seems to be drawn out and weak. I'm half way through the game and expect to finish within a couple of days. I don't regret the purchase, and I do enjoy playing it. So far the Mortimer Beckett games have been more enjoyable then most seek/find games on the market. However, this one isn't better than the first and the puzzles are much more difficult. My advice, try it first...though 6.99 isn't a bad price for a full length game like this.
As other reviewers said, it wouldn't download right even though i have the right kind of computer for this game. My dad is a computer engineer however and was eventually able to get it to work for me. The amazon game installer was not enabling the game to open from what i understood.
Another thing about it was (and this may not be an issue for some people but i found it unnecessary) the way some of the women, even though they were computer animated, were dressed. Not really for children in my opinion.
So I would say, this game is worth the four bucks I paid for it but really after finishing it I doubt I'll be playing it anytime soon.
Other than this bug, I love this game and will probably start over with a different player name now that I think I know how to avoid the "bug". Great graphics. I like the pieces being broken up and misplaced and will be buying the other MB games.
