Maestro: Music of Death Collector's Edition
Good suspenseful game - had it all
This game Maestro - Music of Death - had it all, suspense, adventure, hidden objects, puzzles, good music and background noises. A mysterious black cloud and eerie music emanated from a town whose inhabitants age quickly and die prematurely and the task is to locate the trapped little girl, discover the source of the music and free the town of the Music of Death. The dialogue is acceptable and notes in the diary record progress and events as they happen throughout the game. The graphics are good and clear and reasonably colourful for this eerie type of game but some areas of some scenes are a little dark, especially in the corners. Having said that, the hidden objects are clear and well defined and do not present any great difficulty in locating most of them. The puzzles are unique and varied and quite ingenious and most were comparatively easy to solve but of course there are some tricky ones. One task that made me smile though was that a giant tree had fallen over the road and had to be cut with a little hand saw. Mission impossible. In general a very good and exciting game, I really enjoyed it, including the bonus section.

Loved this game!
I give this game high marks because I enjoyed it so much. I loved the HOS's, the puzzles, the music, the scenery, and the very, very wicked old music teacher! Beautiful game, and wonderful that it carries on in the sequel!

Maestro: Definitely HO
I felt that there was a little TOO much traditional HO in this game and not enough other puzzles. Finding the objects in a scene, especially after the 2nd or 3rd time in the same scene got tiresome.

I really enjoy this game from beginning 'til the end. Also all of this series is one of my favorite games I ever played!
Thank you ERS for making this eerie yet good game! I adore your gorgeus graphics.
Good job, dev.

OK but nothing new
Surprised as I was myself, I found myself lightly disappointed. Having played moren Maestro games (or should I say: more games by the same developers) I found myself getting a bit bored by the same graphics, the same pointer, the same music... and the "coincidence" by which all items you need are to be found quite easiliy, really.
I did play Advanced Mode.
But still, you need a knob for a drawer and - gosh - quite soon you just happen to find one... I don't know. Maybe I played just a bit too much of these games and I might be yearning for something new.
For less experienced players, it is a nice game: good graphics, not crisply bright but beautifully made; intriguing story if you haven't played like 80 of those before.
The only really technical flaw for me was the slowness of the game. Every time I wanted to enter another scene, it took my pc quite long to open it. And I don't think my pc is THAT slow, really....

The storyline of this game was nice and easy to follow. The game play was long, and loaded with puzzles, hunting for solutions to the puzzles and hidden object scenes.
The graphics were okay, nothing spectacular, even a little blurry in some areas. The hint buttons charged at a rather slow pace, as did the skip buttons for the puzzles.
The extras that come with the collector?s edition include wallpaper, screensaver, concept art and additional game play.
The additional game play was long and of the same quality as the game itself.
The things that I felt would have enhanced the game play would have been at least a map, preferably an interactive map so you would have to keep back tracking, and the ability to skip the cut scenes.
Over all, it was a fun game and I would play it again.
