Empress of the Deep 2: Song of the Blue Whale Collector's Edition
One of the most frustrating games ever!
I read all the other reviews, and the only one I really agreed with was the the one that said this game was torturous. I have played many HOS games with beautiful graphics, and this game did have those but that is where my positive comments end. I found the story line to be boring, and there was a lot of wandering around just to find a few objects. I found the whole setup of this game confusing. There were no real hints except to tell you an area to go to (if you could even understand where that was.Trying to find the place they were speaking of was very confusing. I have left and come back to play this game in an attempt to finish it, but every time I do, I just get aggravated. There is no Walkthrough available which may have made it more tolerable. For now...I quit!

This game was terrible
I can honestly say I have played this game style at least 20 times in other games. It follows the standard hidden object scenes, find some objects, solve some puzzles game formula. When a game follows this standard formula, the redeeming 'make you want to buy it' quality is the story line. In this game, the story was terrible.
Animals bow to your character asking to be saved, with these contraptions on their heads. Then you zap them to heal them, but only after you have collected enough 'healing power' by picking up blue dolphins and birds. I finished the demo in 45 minutes, if that gives any indication of how easy the game was. It is definitely not for advanced players.
I played the demo through just to complete it, but honestly it was a terrible game. I played the first Empress of the Deep game and enjoyed it very much, but this sequel was a complete disappointment.

This game was torturous. Slow and did not challenge me at all. I made it through 15 minutes before I could not take it any more. There were too many scenes and too many with only one or two tasks. Too much clicking for no result. I don't play for the music or the graphics, I love a challenge and this game did not provide a challenge.

Not As Great As The Original In Pure Comparison
Let's just say it proved to be not as great as the original by far in more ways than one; hopefully the next one will be even greater. Don't bother playing.
