THIS is CE caliber?? Really?? Good grief this game barely makes the list as a standard game never mind CE quality. It isn't even in wide screen for crying out loud. Look, if quality games can't be found, then please stop trying to offer 3 CE's a week. Sheesh! SMH

This is a cute little game but certainly not a CE. I came to the Forums to see if I had missed anything about the game, wondering why in the world BF considered this worthy of full price. I would most certainly buy it with a coupon if the occasion arises in the future but not now at this outrageous price.

I agree, this is not even close to CE standards. I will pass on it until it is offered at a reasonable price.

It's a rehash of Elven Legends with a few new tricks but I'm happy with it. There aren't enough TM games............I played all the Northern Tales at least twenty times, so bored with HO's. Played thirty levels so far, gotta admit, not a lot of challenge.

I actually like the graphics, but the only "CE" extras you get with this game is 5 Music Soundtracks, 11 Cartoon Concept Art pics and 23 Achievements, which all qualify for the "who cares" category.

This one only gets 2 stars. Not quite sure what qualifies it as a CE. There is no strategy guide built in, can't find any bonus levels and it really is a rehash of previous games. I bought it because it simply looks different so I'm not staring at the little vikings again today. Personally I think they are just being presented as CE's for increased price since I haven't found anything in this one that makes it special.

Have to agree. I have no interest in soundtracks or concept art (or wallpapers, if anyone's paying attention), and the achievements are only marginally interesting to me. A CE should have bonus levels and a strategy guide, minimum, although I can't see a need for a guide for this kind of basic game. I like this kind of game, but I'll wait for a sale.

Here's a copy of my review of Lost Artifacts CE, just to give you a little more insight of what is and isn't offered in the game

I love a good Time Management game, and I'm sure this game will appeal to a lot of gamers, but for me, it just wasn't all that fun. I can't really even pinpoint what it was that turned me off, I actually liked the graphics, maybe it's just the fact that lately BF has been releasing these games in Collector's Editions. It wouldn't be worth twice the price of a Standard Edition, even if it was fun. The only thing you get in this version is some Music, cartoonish Concept Art pictures and Achievements to earn, I'll roll all of those features into one category, who cares! It doesn't even have a Strategy Guide built in, which would somewhat constitute the CE price.
There are the usual tasks to perform of gathering resources of Food, Wood, Ore, Gold, Lumber, and the usual buildings to repair such as Huts for workers, Sawmills for Lumber, and a Blacksmith. At least in the demo, you don't get the chance to construct new buildings, you just repair them, personally, I like the strategy of figuring out which building to construct strategically to achieve the goals. (eg: Rescue Team)
I would recommend this game to those who haven't played a lot, if any, TM games, because this one is very easy to play. I would also recommend this game to those who want to play in an untimed mode, because unlike Bloom, this game has an untimed mode. However, I would still recommend that you wait until the SE is released before purchasing.

Definitely not worth paying full CE price for or wasting credits. It looks and feels like a prototype to the original Gnome's Garden and nowhere near as interesting or difficult. The write up on the game says "More than 40 levels", so I guess there isn't even 50 levels. No bonus game/levels either like in Rescue Team or Northern Tale games. Everything is straightforward and there's no surprises or new interesting things if you've played a TM game before. Not that you need one to get through this, but there's also no strategy guide. I'm puzzled how this got a CE clearance. The wallpapers and music are never interesting to me, but this game has such terrible graphics and annoying, repetitive music, that I'm extra puzzled it's offered.

I waited until I had finished the game to post. I have to agree with previous posters that in no way is this a Collectors Edition game. I feel really cheated out of my two game credits, where is the strategy guide, where are the bonus levels? A complete scam in my opinion. I wish I had paid more attention to the reviews before I wasted two good credits. So its my own fault, but I hoped that I might find it fun enough to warrant my two credits. Alas, no, very easy and not challenging at all. I do not play with the music on, and have no use for the screen-savers or whatever they are. so stupid me, what a waste!

I worked to get all gold ( only had to replay 2 levels!) so I could access the bonus levels. Imagine my surprise to find out there are NONE! How is this a CE game? I have totally wasted my money. Not happy at all.
