I was given the chance to review Antique Road Trip: American Dreamin! in exchange for an honest blog review. I assure you that in no way shaped my opinion of this game.
Antique Road Trip-American Dreamin’ is a Big Fish Games hidden object game. It is perfect game I’d say perfect for players ages 6 on up. The game has a childlike feel to it unlike the other hidden object games that I’ve played from Big Fish Games.
In Antique Road Trip-American Dreamin’ you are traveling across the U.S. and collecting various vintage items to help your own store grow. As you’re hunting for all of these items across the U.S., you’re gaining various rewards along the way.
As your store grows, you’re able to unlock many other mini-games throughout the town. Some of these games include fixing buildings and restoring old collectibles.
For those who love to be sociable with their friends while playing games, you can connect this game with your Facebook profile and actually share your status all throughout the game with them. If you have friends who are playing too, it’s nice to be able to compare your statuses along the way.
My personal opinion of this game is that it’s enjoyable to play. However, like I mentioned, it does have more of kid like feel to it. I found that I wanted to turn the game over my sons to play instead on continuing on. Of course, they loved it. There are many extra steps that I don’t feel are necessary. For an example, you have to click on the money and prizes several times. Plus you also have to click on the task again after you’re done to “collect your reward.”
I will say that I love the graphics and the design of the game. I was able to see every screen with complete ease. There weren’t any really dark scenes like I’ve had to deal with in other Big Fish Games. The game has the ability to make me feel like I’m a part of the game to some degree.
All in all, I would recommend this game for a parent who wants their child to be entertained while they are doing other things. It does teach them many skills along the way that are worth having. It’s not a dangerous game. Of course, that’s one of the things I love about most Big Fish Games they are good for just about any audience.
