Well, I would love to try it but in fifteen minutes I've managed to download 1% so I'm giving up because I refuse to spend all Thursday trying to download a collectors edition anymore,

It comes to something when the download takes longer than the game does to play.

I've played 17 minutes, so this is not comprehensive. The story line is you suddenly wake up with blood on your hands and can't remember anything. Then you find your journal and some things come back to you.

The town (in Vermont) has been totally destroyed by a storm (sounds like last week, doesn't it?) So far, except for a mysterious character who runs off, you are the only one left in town - with a whole lot of fixing to do. The HOS are typical junk piles.

This just hasn't grabbed me, so I'm going to bed.

Well I have the polar opposite opinion of geniegal but I also played the beta of this one a while back so... If you love an outstanding HOPA game with good, old fashioned, hard-core, junk-pile HOG scenes (I do! I do!) than this will be the game for you. This one is outstanding in my opinion and you get to do a bit of "detective work" to top off a great story, great game play (without an excessive amount of wandering for those who get lost easy), wonderful graphics, good voice-overs... well, I am gushing but the Devs deserve it here and this is going to be one of my favorite games of the year, I am sure of it!

It's worth the download time!

I'm just curious as to why the description of the game doesn't mention any extras that have been in the CE editions (wallpapers, bonus gameplay etc) up to this point?
Are we seeing the beginning of ALL games being deemed to be CEs - and therefore more expensive - with no discernible 'extras' to warrant an increased price?
Just call me dubious (or is that cynical?)!!!!

I'll come back later to try it - slow d/l doesn't cheer me early in the morning.

Thank you for the info Shadowfax. At the moment though my download has stopped completely which is what it did on the first games manager upgrade. Last week I had quite a frustrating free day on Thursday as the game downloaded like they used to before the gm upgrade,

My appetite was whetted on Monday with Mudrock giving such a glowning account of the game so today (I'm in the U.K. 8am) everything was put on hold so I could give this game my full attention, not that I'm addicted lolol, but it's not to be.

Ah well, maybe another game manager upgrade will fix things.

Thanks too, shadow! I join the large group of fishies with slow download...

As I didn't play the Beta, I must download the trial - gee, 163 Mega, and only 43% after 3/4 of hour. Good that I have some chores to make...

I tried it too, Shadow. It also has a place where you can select expert or casual and I know several people like this. I know this isn't an ERS game but it feels like one to me. This game has 7 chapters and a lengthy bonus play according to the SG, which is accessible in the trial phase. A couple of twists on the puzzles I've played. Want to buy it so better get hubby in a good mood. Spent too much on last weekend's sale!!

i'm in france,and now,my download has stopped at 22% after 30 min!i have played this game as beta and noticed:not as CE,so i have given up this stupid download(in france we say for the the very slow things:as quick as senator-they are all of them very old-)and ,as lucylocket,am very suspicious with the game description:no bonus?no SG?and CE price?is it new?perhaps the biginning of new slogan:
every day a new( expensive) game?

No problems downloading; it does have an integrated strategy guide. So far, don't see anything outstanding, but will persevere based on comments from those who have Beta tested. Don't really need another CE right now!
