Consistent with the rest of the Faircroft’s Antiques series, The Forbidden Crypt is among the most polished hidden item puzzlers out there. The puzzles themselves have consistent artwork, items generally blend in well with the background (well, as most as some oddball things are able to), and there are also often other puzzles of various kinds that break things up nicely. To top it off, while the stories and characters may not generate much intrigue or excitement there’s at least an attempt to pull everything together thematically, but in a light way that doesn’t add substantially to the time you put in, just enough to connect things together and add a layer of polish. While it’s hard to say any particular chapter is clearly better than the others, if you’re a hidden object fan the series and this specific title are certainly worth a look.
