The Secret Legacy: A Kate Brooks Adventure Review

The Secret Legacy: A Kate Brooks Adventure is probably one of the worst hidden object games we’ve seen in a while. The problems are numerous and the story is almost irrelevant. The hidden object aspect lacks the most important part of a game – fun. There are technical issues and, even mixing up the variety of gameplay and the elements that actually would have set this title apart, the execution is unsuccessful. There is one shining spot, but unfortunately, it has nothing to do with the game itself – and that’s the side story told by ancient Egyptian tablets.

The story begins soon after the death of Kate’s grandmother. It looked like an accident, but through the course of Kate’s investigation, she discovers her grandmother was murdered. Searching further, we discover letters from Kate’s grandmother and clues into her research, as she apparently knew she was going to be killed. Who the murderer ends up being and how the game concludes is a huge disappointment all around. There is a side story involving a pharaoh, an arranged marriage and a slave that is compelling and an entire game could be made off that story – it would drive a game well. This story is told only when a player finds one of the eight tablets hidden in certain scenes. This story is the only thing about the game that makes it playable – it’s fascinating.
