Overall I enjoyed this game and bought it before the demo was finished.

What with all the accolades I just had to buy this one…

Plus the fact, I like most everything that comes from **** games.

Different isn't always better. That said, this time it is...

The previous comments have already enumerated plus/minus', My recommendation is to fully take advantage of the demo and judge for yourself.

The developers did a good job with this game. It is a buy for me.

Enticing title but I don't care for the HDO game implementations in general. It is really too bad because HDO really has some unique game concepts. I just wish their design and production were equal to their intriguing concepts.

I enjoyed Lord of Mirrors... Don't like sparkles...

I'm going to buy it anyway. I can't explain why.

I think this is definitely worth a coupon.

I enjoyed the first one, Woman in White, and think this will be as good or better.

Good story line and graphics.

I'm not sure why, but I don't really like this game.

I would really like to like it but for some reason I just can't.

Oh well, I'll play the demo till I time-out or I figure out why I don't like it... or who knows maybe I'll change my mind.

No buy for me.

Bought the CE and don't regret it.

I enjoyed this game until the solitaire games started ending as soon as you find the old card.

It would be a definite buy if the solitaire games did not auto-finish/end when the old card was turned up, and even better play would be if you didn't get or "win" the old card unless you beat the solitaire game.

With the "TULIP" sale I think this is a buy. The storyline is interesting and graphics look good to these eyes.
 
 
Good game overall as the reviews enumerate.

I think I'll wait till the SE to purchase.

Any time I see repeated "Removed by moderator" in messages I know the game is probably in trouble, and, probably not worth the effort.

The "moderator" isn't enhancing the game's image with repeated "Removed by moderator" notices. A bad omen for a game I think.

Anyway it is too much like an HDO for me. No buy.

This is a fun game. I know... games are all about fun... but there are some games that just bring a smile to my face; this is one of those games.

+ 1/2

Good middle of the road game, but again, I don't feel it rises to the level of a CE.

I'll wait for the SE and see how I feel then...

This game looked good but I cannot abide sparkles. I'd rant but it would be "removed by moderator"

No buy because of sparkles...

Boring! No buy for me...

Arghh... I wasn't going to buy CEs any more but I have to have this one; then I'm done with CEs! I guess I just don't have the necessary self control, but this game really worth the CE price.

Games this good are rare and I just have to have it...

Ok, I going to just have to stop previewing these that might help me with my CE boycott. Well not a boycott really, just...

This really is a beautiful, well designed game and worth the $.

The previous reviews detailed the good attributes and I really can't improve on them.

 
 
I agree with most reviewers that this does not live up to whatever criteria players use to warrant the coveted "CE" double price.

I will wait till the mundane "SE" comes out.

Brings up a good question though; are there really any CE criteria, or is it purely a marketing decision of how to maximize profit by calling it a Collector's Edition and doubling the price?
