I’m not even going to bother trialing this game, I trialed the C/E and promised myself I would buy the S/E, when it arrived and here it is.

Happy gaming everyone.

Coomented in the other thread about the nasty sparkles, and the player more or less ending blind.

The sparkles weren't a problem to me at all. At some points I was glad they were there. The places you visit are huge! And you can get lost on what to do and where to go at times even though there was a strategy guide. I truly loved every aspect of the game. The game was totally beautiful. And one after your done playing won't forget it that easy at all. The Gogii team did a superior job on this one. I had fun with the CE version.

Happy gaming!

Didnt complete the trial on this because I felt as though I was running round and getting nowhere , didnt like the the eerie music and the voice and didnt like the constant egg timer I'm a bit impatient I'm afraid and like to get from scene to scene as quickly as possible I didnt think there were enough clear instructions as to where to go next and the hint didn't guide you very well .Maybe i just need a bit more help than most , anyway have a good day all xx

Quite a weird game to play. Had lots of flashing pink areas that drove me nuts LOL! Not a buy for me unfortunately.

Love this sequel. It's absolutely beautiful! The graphics,sound, story are so amazing. I'm so glad for those of us that wait for the SE, it's our turn. It's really beautiful. I played the CE, but I waited for the SE. It is worth the wait. It's lived up to everything I hoped for. I highly recommend this game. At least give it the full trial try. You might enjoy it more if you try the first one. It make sense in the story and game play.

I rate this: FINE SWINE

My "Terms" for Hogs,IHogs,Frogs & Other types of games.

FINE SWINE:
Great game with the best graphics and story. Bells and whistles, best, greatest, I love it.


PIGLET:
Good game. I like it! Hog,Frog,Ihog. For true lover's of these types of games


PORK BELLY:
Maybe a likable game for some, but not for everyone. It’s just mediocre.


TROTTER:
Pig's foot, don't run away with buying it. lol

PIG DOWN:
Rolling in the mudd, don't go near it or you'll get soiled.

I totally agree. I just loved every aspect of this game, and yes it could be sometimes confusing, but that's okay -- you're there to solve them! I also got quite addicted to the bonus game Zems. LOL! I wouldn't quit it until I got that third trophy (gold) --- TWICE! Awesome game!

well, i was waiting for the SE to come out, and here it is... and i'm disappointed as all...


anyway, the game runs kinda sketchy, i have two cursors, and the "skip this cut scene" button doesn't skip, but instead gives an unwanted hint...

i demo'ed the CE and didn't have these problems, so what's wrong with this version?

the only options available to change are for sound and full screen, so i can't do anything about the cursor issue, but i do wish that i could skip scenes that i have already seen - especially since they play out sooo slowly...

i intend to post also in the tech thread, but wanted to post my comments regarding the game here also...

this is just unreal... i guess my wait is over - and i guess i will buying something else!

good luck everyone

Very odd game. Not for me after playing 30 minutes of demo.

I love this game, but the only thing that bugs me is the woman's voice, it's so irritating. She's as annoying as the voice of Nicole Bonnet in the Art of Murder games!

I have played and liked part 1 of Empress of the deep, but didn`t like the second part very much. It feels like almost the same. The graphic is also not special, also the storyline. Only an average game in my opinion, and a "no buy" for me

Here!! here!! LovetoMissLisa, I also found this game very enjoyable, I was engaged and intrigued for 4 plus hours and loved every minute. In the C/E forum for this game someone said they thought it was too easy. I didn’t find easy or difficult, just involving for me.
I also enjoyed the first one, but not quite so much.

And Columbia999, I actually thought it was Nicole Bonnet, but City Interactive is a Polish developer, and I don’t think Gogii are, but I really don’t know. Actually I don’t mind Nicole’s voice, I’ve bought all 4 AOM games and I’m used to it now.

I bought the C.E. having enjoyed the first game. I still haven't finished it BOOOORING is the only way I can describe it. Lots of running around in pretty scenes with not a lot to do.

I purchased the CE and loved the game but just wanted to make a comment/suggestion to BF. I posted this before on another game forum:
"Thank you fishies for mentioning that there was a CE version because I buy so many games that I forget that I already bought the CE. Usually BF will make the following statement: "For a more in depth experience, check out the Collector's Edition" on the main page of the game description. That triggers me to check if I already bought the CE but this time the statement wasn't there. I know I should remember all the games but there are too many
BF, can you please indicate when the game was already released as a CE? Some of us have senior moments

Played through the full demo with out stopping, so this game did hold my interest. I don't think there is a need for a walkthrough, since the hint system will tell you what to do next in addition to finding hidden objects. I liked the first one and I am enjoying this one. This is a buy for me.
