I play video games and review them.

Classic Adventures: The Great Gatsby (Bigfishgames.com)

When Nick Carraway visited his cousin Daisy, he was just hoping to make it big as a bonds salesmen.  He had no idea that he’d get caught up in so much mayhem.

Anyone who’s read the book or at least seen one of the movies knows how the plot plays out.  I’ve done all three and had to play this game due to The Great Gatsby being one of my favorite novels.  For those of you who know nothing about the story, it’s pretty hard to sum up while avoiding spoilers and condensing it into a few sentences.  All I can say is that it’s about dreams vs. reality, the carelessness of the rich and a deconstruction of the American Dream.

The game play is that of hidden object.  During cut scenes you have to collect a certain type of object enough time for points.  You play through hidden object scenes in order to advance the plot.

You can also partake in mini games just as typing out the words as they come (my absolute favorite).

When you’re done, you can use the points you’ve accumulated to purchase decorations for your house.

This game is addictive but not really all that intriguing.  I give it 3 out of 10; unless you’re a diehard Gatsby fan, you’re better off reading the book or watching one of the movies.
