I played the CE and really liked this one!! Too many games since then to give a detailed review... duh! So, we will leave it at this: I recommend this one.

I've bought the CE version a month ago, really really great game. Outstanding graphics, exciting story line and awesome gameplay. However, the length is a bit too short, but anyway i think this game even worth the CE price. HOGfans shouldn't miss this one!

Enjoy!

Nope - a wee bit longer - April 21. I peeked, lol. Even so, I do remember trying the CE, but couldn't decided whether to get it or not. Now I will try the SE and see if I can actually make up my mind for a change, lol

It is definitely worth every penny of the SE price mamajay - JMO of course!! (Oh, yeah, especially since there is a $4.99 sale on right now!! Wow, that is a steal deal for this game!!)

CE is a collector Edition, includes an extra bit to play, wallpapers, strategy Guide, etc, so the price is higher

SE is the Standard Edition, so you don't get all the extras of the CE.

Hope that helps.

I tried the CE when it came out and I don't buy CE's...but this one tempted me so much I almost could'nt wait. This game is so amazing in graphics,voice overs,story,game play. I can't say enough great things about this game. It looks like most people got the CE version and I understand. But I'm so happy the SE is here. This truly is an amazing game. You must try it for sure. And I'm so happy I get this SE version with the sale of 4.99. What a deal!!!!!!!!!! Not only is this game a buy for me, but I'm giving my highest rating. I would rate it higher if I had one. lol

I rate this "FINE SWINE"


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

FINE SWINE:
Great game. 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:
Likable game for some, but not for everyone.

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 played the demo for the CE when it came out; and decided I would wait for the SE. It is an interesting game with a cute, imaginative storyline that would make it ideal for a family game. The graphics are beautiful, the music and voice acting are very good; and it does not seem to have any really scary characters (other than the witch who cast the spell). It does seem as though it would be a bit on the short side for playing time, however. It only took 58 minutes for me to finish the demo; and I did not skip any dialogue, and never used a hint. When I checked the walkthrough to see how far that got into the game, it looked like that was nearly half of the game. That would make it very good for families with young children because their attention span is a bit shorter than older children or adults.

Allow me to correct your assumption :

That would make very good for slow players too...

I bought the CE, but if you waited for the SE - it's a buy for sure! Stunning game!!! Took me about 5-6 hours to finish it (slow player), and I skipped the most puzzles.
Awesome graphics, helpful hint system, interesting plot.

It's a fantastic game by ERS Studios (that's always a good sign). Bought it in CE and love it. I recommend it to anyone who doesn't already own it. Wonderful for adults and for kids. Graphics, story, puzzles, everything is great. At 4.99 you can't go wrong, it's the bargain you have been waiting for.

Buy this one, the CE was great, but you don't need it for the ending. Beautiful game.

I'll add to the comments-I got the CE when it came out (o shortly thereafter) & am in the process of playing again. It's been a while since I played the first time so I can't say if you get the same H0 list each time or not. It's definitely to try and in my opinion, a game worth buying especially with the sale price. Have fun, y'all.

Just played a short bit of the demo and am off to buy but first want to say how cute Felix looks in his celebration hat

I agree with all the positive comments in both this forum and the earlier CE forum. The artwork, animations, mini puzzles, dialogue are excellent.

I'm so happy this is offered this weekend at the sale price because it allows some of us the opportunity to enjoy the game now rather than later. Thanks Big Fish!

Lovely charming game. But, as with all ERS games of late, it lags excrutiatingly in many scenes on my pc (NO other games cause this problem except ERS games.)

Had to use task manager to get out (unless I wanted to wait all day for scene to move pixel by pixel). I then uninstalled. No buy.

(I also posted in both technical threads).
