Mystery of the Opera 

 

The horror hidden object games must be big on the iPad because G5 Entertainment releases so many of them. Most of them come from the Big Fish gaming site portal. Who also must be doing well financially otherwise these games would not keep coming out.

I get the hidden object game play. I think it is cool looking around on a screen trying to find hidden objects. The whole I Spy concept is mentally engaging. I also like finding items, and using them in other locations. Even if it is very unrealistic.

What I do not get is the whole horror part. Ghosts in Mystery of the Opera are not like Casper. They are not comic relief. They are freaky, and treated as real live characters. Which is the second portion of Mystery of the Opera I find to be unrealistic.

I did some research before playing Mystery of the Opera. Family Friendly Gaming has been asking for certain improvements to the hidden object genre for some time. Thus far it is not happening. Which means either Family Friendly Gaming Nation is not being listened to, or the occult and spiritual content is in there for a reason. Could a belief system being shoved down the gamers throats? Is there a hidden agenda in the hidden object games?

I ran into problems playing Mystery of the Opera. At times the hints would tell me to do things I could not do. Or the hint said to do something, and the game would not let me. It told me to use something else. This led to a high level of frustration on my part.

The story in Mystery of the Opera never drew me in. The restraints on exploration held me back. The spiritual content, violence, as well as alcohol elements told me this is an adults only game. I would not let a child play Mystery of the Opera. The animation is lacking severely in Mystery of the Opera. G5 Entertainment has plenty of better games on the marketplace.
