I play video games and review them.

Uncharted Tides: Port Royal Beta Test

When Mary Jane receives a message telling her that she might find her missing father, she sets sail and makes a new thief friend named Jack.  Can they find her long lost father or is this a trap set up by a clever villain?

The story is one of a pirate adventure starring the characters of Mary Jane and Jack.  Honestly, it didn’t really interest me but, after Shadowplay, it might have had a tough act to follow.  Mary Jane is the typical tomboy pirate while Jack is the typical thief.  A pirate named Jack, now where have we heard that before?  Yes, there’s a mystery about what happened to Mary Jane’s father but, in all honesty, it just doesn’t interest me.

The game play is typical hidden object with you searching various locations for items that you can use to help progress through the game.  Some items require you to participate in a hidden object scene.  You sometimes have to play mini-games in order to advance and, if you’re stuck, you can use the rechargeable hint.  I often found myself using that hint though I don’t know whether it’s because I couldn’t remember where anything was supposed to go, or I just didn’t care enough to fully participate in the game.

This game is average at best.  I have no interest in buying the full game when it comes out.
