Unfortunately, I'm not recommending "Alex Hunter - Lord of the Mind Platinum Edition." The game's got acceptable graphics for what it is. But, it has enough issues that I just can't recommend it. First of all, this is supposedly a Hidden Object Game (HOG). Yes, there certainly are HOGs in the game. But, in general, the puzzles that aren't HOGs ins such a game should be perception-based puzzles with some mild logic puzzles of putting the pieces you have together. In this game, the non-HOG puzzles are mostly what appear to be logic puzzles, but are really just brute force puzzles. With a logic puzzle, you examine the situation, figure out the rules, and determine that the answer is X. In these brute force puzzles, you can't do that. The best you can do is look at the situation, figure out the rules, and optimize your moves to try to minimize the combinations you have to try before stumbling upon the answer that works. Very frustrating in a HOG-type game. Secondly, the game will randomly re-activate HOGs you've already done, but give you no game-based reason to go back to that area and see that a HOG has re-activated. The only way you figure it out is when you're stuck and either look at the map to see an old area now has something for you to do there, or wander back through all the accessible areas to see. And, finally, the story is even more filled with holes than the story in other HOGs. Yes. I got over 10 hours of play out of the game. But, the game is just not good enough to recommend. I suppose if you can find it for a couple of dollars or in a heavily discounted bundle, you could try it. Just be aware of the situation.
