    Well Worth CE Price

    In fact, I have reviewed this game 3 times already, back not long after it was released (2011) and again in March of this year and again for the CE, even though I own the SE game, which I’ve played about 8 times, the last time with walkthrough handy, because even after all those tries I still end up skipping and hinting too much.

    This has a little of all 3 in it...

    This is a top notch game, with beautifully crafted graphics, good environmental sounds, and unobtrusive music. It even has changing weather! The story is one we’ve all played a million times before. Tragedy, ghosts, you must help them or the world will end. As I say, the usual, but well told. It ends neatly and satisfyingly, but leaves one little question unanswered, and had I known, I would have bought the CE for that alone.

    The journal is actually quite helpful, besides keeping codes etc. it fleshes out the story a bit and draws conclusions that can help guide you to the next task. The game play is great too. The HOS are very interactive, where items on the list go immediately to inventory where they can be used to find others on the list. Common enough now, but unique when this game was first released.

    My one gripe with it was over the hint/skip buttons and the difficulty of the puzzles. Hint only tells if there is a task to do in the location, but does not differentiate between ones you can complete immediately and those for which you do not have the items needed to start the puzzle. This has caused me so much frustration! Then, you finally try to do the puzzle, as often as not it’s too hard. And skip takes forever. (No choice of difficulty levels).

    Which is why I’m writing this review. If you are thinking of buying this game, CE or SE, go with the CE. Even without any bonus game at all, and none of the usual CE bling, this game is worth the price, for the integrated strategy guide alone.

    I recommend this game!

    I thought this was an excellent game, too.  I really feel that it didn't earn the recognition it deserved.

    Never be a prisoner of your past.
    It was just a lesson, not a life sentence.
