I made the mistake and bought the CE (in a sale, thank goodness). I didn't even finish the main game. After the interesting start, the game got quickly tedious. Besides that, the graphics are crude in many places.

Glad I didn't buy this game. Really liked it till it came to the tea, tea bag and flowers. Will not work. Click everywhere to put flowers in tea cup which says its first. Wont do anything. Hit the hint button and it says petals in cup. Well doesn't work. If they ever get this fixed will buy it. Glad I just tried it first.Not going to waste my money.

I had trouble placing these items; first, you seem to have to hit the sweet spots; second, the rose petals don't go in the cup straight away but in a bowl behind and to the right.

I liked this game. It kept going and going. A bit persnickety at times and by that I mean you had to be VERY specific when you were placing items. Really had to be in the right spot or the item went back into inventory. Never did find a mask though...

Apparently I'm one of the few who actually enjoyed this game. Yes, you sometimes needed to be a bit "right on" when clicking on some items but that wasn't a big thing...I get that in a lot of games. The one thing that drove me nuts was trying to keep all the characters straight and the relationships between them. The story was a bit lame...I mean, who discards a child for any reason?

The transporter map was terrific and it was REALLY needed as this game was all over. I played on custom level so I was able to set the hint and skip pretty fast which helped with the awful mini games...tedious, My tolerance level for those is pretty low anyway so they never get positive remarks from me. HOS were fairly creative and easy. The game moved along quite smoothly (thanks to the map) for me. Voice overs on some characters were good, others somewhat annoying. I didn't particularly like the audio tapes and you really don't have to play them but they do fill the story out a bit. If you read faster than they speak you can just close the tape up before its done and put it away.

I did find the graphics a bit blurry at times...not as crisp as some games, but the animations were good as well as the colors. Characters lips don't move when they speak if that bothers some people. This game did have a lot of things to do, and sometimes you had to think about it a bit...definitely an adventure game.

This game was a long game for a SE...Although the ending was good, I think the CE may have continued it a bit...not sure though...but I wouldn't waste the money trying to find out...it ended OK. I would give this game a 4- out of 5...not really sure why other gamers thought it was boring, I didn't at all and I've been playing these games for years.

Based on completed game:

A decent game w/ an interesting story – I liked how more was revealed via cassette tapes; a nice touch to keep it dated. Decent graphics (not blurry or grainy), good VOs, a clearly marked transport map to cover 19 locations (Phew! I was lost w/o it), fun HOPs and interesting puzzles; some w/ a twist on same ‘ol (Ex: Open coffin match symbols). All characters were well-suited to the story except Viggio whose role was reduced to being such a ninny.

Later in the game (past the gates), back-and-forth felt too much. This ruined the end, when, at a time of life and death, I had to first visit 3 other locations for related (and unrelated) tasks AND play 2 HOPs before helping out!

Overall, it wasn't too bad as I played it over 3 days.
