Product Description

In Escape the Museum, a devastating earthquake has rocked the foundations of the National Museum of History and players must help Susan Anderson, who was knocked unconscious by falling debris while searching the museum for survivors. Escape from the crumbling building to the safety outside. Thwarted by doors blocked with rubble and tripped alarm systems, players wander through the museum's maze of 12 different hunt and find areas and 25 action-packed adventure scenes, using the Wii Remote to uncover hidden exits and save priceless archaeological artifacts. Along the way, players will solve puzzles, consult a map and access hints to help them inch closer to freedom and a joyful reunion with Susan's lost daughter.

A Detailed, First-Person View of the Museum
The story behind Escape the Museum began innocently enough when Susan Anderson brought her daughter to work at the National Museum of History to share in an exciting, educational day. But just after closing time, an earthquake caused destruction on a massive scale. After making sure that Caitlin was safe, Susan returns to the museum to make sure no one else had been trapped and left behind, but her heroic intentions are compromised when falling debris knocks her unconscious.

When she wakes up--alone and in the midst of all the ruined displays--she can barely move. This is where you come in, standing in her shoes, with a first-person view of the vast museum and all the gritty, dusty destruction caused by the earthquake. Can you outsmart the security system that has come on? Save art and artifacts from the dusty, unstable displays? Find a way to reach your daughter for a happy reunion?

Sensitive Wii Controls for Navigating a Puzzling Journey
With 25 distinct adventure scenes and 12 different hunt-and-find areas to search through, there's plenty of territory to explore in this museum. And your Wii remote offers the control you need to solve a variety of puzzles, find and salvage priceless artifacts, and uncover exits that have been hidden in the chaos. Skillful players will even discover ways to access hints that help them on their adventurous journey.

When it comes time to gauge where you stand, a detailed map screen lets you check what percentage of the game you have completed and gauge your progress. You can also quickly view your accuracy as a percentage, the value of the artifacts you have saved, and the amount of time that has elapsed. All these stats add to the fun when you want to compete against your personal best or the personal bests of your friends and family.

Challenging Mini-Games
In addition to the main adventure narrative, this hidden object game includes two mini-games that add to the challenge of your missions. One requires you to locate pieces of valuable paintings and reassemble them as a puzzle. The other asks you to try and match an artifact's weight. Successful matching allows you to save the artifact in question and continue on to other rooms.

Customer Reviews:

  • Boring, too slow and hard for kids
    This is too hard to find the items, and way too slow paced. Storyline is very boring. I would not recommend, very disappointing. And like a dummy I bought 2 of them, one for each grandchild. ...more info
  • It stimulates your creative thinking.
    This game is very challenging and fun. It keeps you searching for clues and the proper order of the clues to meet the criteria to open the room. My 12 year old grandson plays it and likes the challenge. ...more info
  • Escape the Museum
    This is one of the worst games I've played on the Wii. I am a big fan of HOG (Hidden Object Games) on the PC and thought it would be fun on the Wii. WRONG. Very hard to navigate around the screen and the items are very hard to find. Not fun at all. Save your money on this one....more info
  • worst game I ever bought
    This is the worst game I have ever bought. It's is clearly trying to steal some of the postiives from the the movie "Night at the Museum".

    It is not even a video game but rather a "comic book" style Q&A search game.

    Its really horrible, I had a difficult time explaining to my son why it was so bad.

    You have to wonder at the greed of the manfacturer to publish this thing.......more info
