Name: Hidden Expedition: The Crown of Solomon Collector's Edition
Release Date: 04 July 2014
Developer: Eipix Entertainment
Since Smithsonian Hope Diamond was such an incredible game, it is definitely a tough job for Eipix to make this sequel live up to its predecessor. Well, The Crown of Solomon did just that...in some parts. The Crown of Solomon is an amazing game to look at; it is filled with beautiful and unique locations, awesome artwork, some of the best cutscenes and epic soundtracks. It is hard to keep our eyes off the game as its sights are such pleasure!
The Crown of Solomon also has a fairly nice storyline. Although it is not very refreshing or original; the historical facts and details are enjoyable and the characters you meet in the game are fun to interact with.
Unfortunately, all those mentioned above are not able to save this game from its lack of challenge. From what we can remember, Hidden Expedition has always been a challenging series - even the previous one from Eipix was quite demanding. Thus, we pretty much disappointed when we found out that The Crown of Solomon is a no brainer. The hidden object scenes are certainly very entertaining and creative; nonetheless, the objects are too big and far too easy to spot. The puzzles are no different, not very innovative and offer no challenge whatsoever - there is a ton of them in the game though. The story and the gameplay are simple, straightforward and predictable.
Again, the Collector's Edition of Hidden Expedition: The Crown of Solomon comes with a variety of extra content. There are a range of collectibles and morphing objects to hunt for, achievements to earn and a good Bonus Chapter to complete.
Hidden Expedition: The Crown of Solomon has top production values, but the fun is taken away by the lack of challenge and the mundane gameplay.
