Comments on: Hidden Expedition: Titanic Game Review

Hidden Expedition: Titanic Game ReviewKris brings us a new review of Astraware's Hidden Expedition: Titanic game. Based on Hidden Expedition: Titanic, the best-selling PC game, the handheld version features the same stunning graphics and captures the atmosphere of the original. Control your game using a choice of the intuitive five-way controller or the stylus to find a variety of artifacts hidden within the sunken ship. The legendary RMS Titanic, which sank in 1912, still houses a wealth of artifacts and treasures on-board. In Hidden Expedition: Titanic, explore the wreckage of this once-majestic ship and collect antique artifacts for the Titanic Museum.

This would be a more interesting review if we used these substitutes:
"PALM" for "Titanic"
"Profit" for "Expedition"
"management" for "gameplay"
"company" for "game"

This substitution seems strangely appropriate due to the amazingly low rating of this game...

...yes, slow day at the office... :)

Did you miss the point?

I completely DISAGREE with the review. (Ok, not "completely", but well enough that it's on the other side of the spectrum.)

Granted, I've been playing Titanic on my T3, so I have the "higher" resolution on a larger screen, though honestly the play was identical with the slider closed (so "higher" resolution is non-issue).

With that said, SOME of the items can be small and/or hard to find, but that's where the subject comes in: it's a SEARCHING GAME. Think "I Spy" for the Palm. (Ever heard of Where's Waldo?)

And given that, it makes an excellent game. Once you've been to a room, the items are always in the same place, but the list of items varies with each visit -- as does the placement of the 5 gems. That gives it just enough variety to make very good replay value. (There are also extra oxygen tanks to be found in various rooms, too. The play gets more difficult in the later levels as you have MORE rooms to search with typically LESS time per room.)

If you go into the game looking for a shoot 'em up, yeah, you'll be [sorely] disappointed... But if you go into the game expecting a SEARCH game, you would do very well by playing this game. My wife isn't really into Palm OS games, but at the mere mention of "I Spy", she snatched my T3 from my hands and didn't put it down for HOURS. (And she advanced well beyond the first 2 + bonus rooms.)

Don't miss the POINT of the game when you do a review. That's like saying the Lincoln Towncar is a horrible car because it doesn't race around the track like a Porsche Boxter. They're both good cars, but have very different purposes.

Just my $0.02 .
