Inside Mac Games has posted a review of one of the latest hidden-object games from publisher Big Fish Games, Hidden Mysteries: Buckingham Palace. This game has the player crossing the pond to jolly ole' England to have a look around the Royal residence to find some lost items. Here's an excerpt from the review:

Each location in Hidden Mysteries highlights a different area of Buckingham Palace – drawing rooms, dining rooms, gardens, gateways, etc. The levels are filled with objects, but they seem a bit anemic. This is likely because the game is trying to both give you the sense that you’re exploring the Palace and give you things to find. Leaning too heavily towards the clutter of objects and the location is obscured, disrupting the theme a bit. The problem with this approach is that it then means that the game becomes pretty easy.

In most locations objects aren’t so much hidden as they are placed on the ground in a random fashion. Many items are in plain view, with nothing obscuring or distracting you from them. I also found it pretty frequent that the game would list three, four, five objects in a row for me to find… and they would all be literally within pixels of one another.
