And here we've got another representant of famous and quite popular genre, known as hidden object games. So the basis of the game is not original or innovative. However, in comparison to other games of this type, I must admit that I've found here some nice surprises. First of all - no looking for the dozens of coins/other elements through entire game and going back to search the missing one or two elements. It's unfortunately quite popular motive in hidden object games and luckily, we won't see this in Lost Civilization. It's also a really nice surprise, that we're not limited to one big location, but we'll change the places we'll meet - Prague, military camp near the boarder of Czech Republic and Germany, London... Yes, that's really pleasant surprise, especially with the Czech Republic - the countries in Middle Europe are one of the rarest locations we can see in video games. But unfortunately, here come some serious deficiencies of this game. First of all - in games like Infected: Twin Vaccine or Nightmares From the Deep, when we had the classic "find all necessary objects" motive, it was always in some way connected with the efforts of our protagonist. And in "Lost Civilization" there is no such connection. For example - we're segregate the trashes from Sarah's inventory (i can't imagine how she were keeping them for so long and what for), to obtain some crucial item at the end of this sequence. And obtaining it has nothing to do with all this segregating. And unfortunately, it's noticeable in almost all such sequences. However, it's nice variety, that sometimes we're not only seeking for the items, but also placing the items we have in adequate places. And it would be really great, if it only would have any sense and connection with the efforts of Sarah. But the most noticeable thing is, that this game is unimaginably easy. As I've mentioned, there is plenty of smaller locations, but they're almost always constructed in way to avoid any moment of wondering, where should we go. It's going even further - the game is automatically closing the acess to some places/things, if we've done everything what we could. It's the one of the easiest games I've ever played - and that's not good, because game should always bring some challenge. To conclude, I would recommend this game only for people, who are beginners and are seeking for their first/second game (such easy title will be good) or... For players, are not too good/mediocre with their english, like this genre and want to learn some new words (to be honest, I've needed a couple of times to use the dictionary, to find out what I should seek at this moment in „hidden object” sequence). Other players can be quite disappointed.
