Nice little hidden object titleCooberstooge | Sept. 12, 2012 | See all Cooberstooge's reviews »
Herod's Lost Tomb manages to be interesting in a way that many hidden object games are not: the scenes are nice to look at. So many of the other titles in this genre have cluttered, bland set pieces you must find items in that they quickly become boring and not a little irritating, too.
Controls are standard fare, and easily recognizable to connoisseurs of this style of games. Sound is adequate, but not overly memorable - it does the job, but nothing more. The story is quite good, though, and has quite a lot of detail buried in it, much like you'd expect anything National Geographic stamps its name onto would. The graphics are where this little gem shine, though, and there are several areas that are just plain stunning - the interior of the tomb is a special treat, with well-used lighting effects by the developers.
The puzzles range widely in difficulty, but some of them truly are quite hard, and will take more than a few attempts to solve - I found the inclusion of these ones rather surprising, but with a little effort, even the younger audiences will be able to prevail. Quite a nice little game, and one well worth the cost, if you ask me.

It's a point and click game, a game genre with mostly boring and uninteresting games. Is this one any different? A bit. The game has some very hard puzzles, but the searching of the items is still anything but interesting. For this price though, you can't really complain. After all, it's still fun to play, as are all point and click games.
The not so very strong story behind this game is to unravel the secrets of Herods tomb.
