Alex Hunter is a surprisingly long hidden object game with little story, decent puzzles and a nice soundtrack. Although it never really surpasses the mediocre level, the sheer length alone makes it stand out of similar games.
Alex Hunter: Lord of the Mind is an average hidden object title in all aspects, except one: unlike most similar games it has a male protagonist.
Not that it really matters, since the story– a missing person investigation leading into a James Bond-like “stop the evil genius from taking over the world” scenario– takes up about 5-10 minutes of game time. It is nothing more than an excuse to use a Victorian visual theme, a very carefully designed and implemented, excellent visual theme.
The game is exceptionally long, thanks to the quite lengthy (although not particularly difficult) puzzles, the balanced hidden object scenes, and just the sheer number of places you can visit. It can easily clock over six hours even if one uses the map all the time to avoid the constant backtracking, making it an excellent choice if you want to have some game length for your money.
