Game review: The Race

The Race is another hidden object game that tries too hard. The premise is that you are one in five pairs of competitors racing around the world. However, the problem with the game does not lie in the premise. It's the execution. In order to make the game "difficult," they cram each location full of a variety of objects. I really wish game designers would learn that this does not make a game difficult, it makes it annoying. Since there are so many items in the picture, it is impossible to see everything. So the item you are looking for might only be seen as a bicycle handlebar or a smudge on a window. There are many ways to make a hidden object game fun and challenging. This was not one of them.
