Gravely Silent: House of Deadlock Collector's Edition
This is the first time I have every done a review of a game I didn't like. The graphics were nice, so that I rated higher. It started out ok. But that changed quickly. The HOS are cluttered and the things to find are VERY small!!! I pride myself on being able to do them with out the hints, well in this one I HAD to use hints or I would still be on the first chapter... The story and gameplay started out well then seemed to become "rushed". The first "Ring" seemed to take longer to find and you had to do more, after that, there wasn't as much. Also in the HOS they will ask for a "Star" and there will be 5 different kinds of stars in it and they only want a certain one #and if you click wrong too many times branches grow over the screen, but it doesn't really count against you.# The Puzzles have VERY little instructions with them.. so some I just skipped. But the one thing that surprised me the most is there is NO journal/diary etc... they give NO back story to the game, this you only some what learn from the CE and then only a little.
I am going to go ahead and recommend this game but only as a SE NOT a CE!!

Absolutely love this game! fantastic graphics, brilliant HOS which are a joy to play and nice and smooth. Love the story, only half way through and I've not needed the strategy guide yet. Quite creepy in some scenes and the music is beautiful. The puzzles are just right without being too easy or frustrating and some new ones I've not seen before. Another fab game fro BF.

Played the demo after reading all the reviews for the SE and CE.
The HOS were terrible and I used hint after hint just to get through all of them.
Find the rings is the story line, boring!
Not many items to keep in storage. usually you need to use the 1 item you have and need to run around to find where to use it. Then you can move on.
This game is not my cup of tea. Too many bad HOS, dark, hard to find items and where to use them.
If you like a challenge and hage good eye sight, then this game is for you, but if you're like me and want a fun game with puzzles and only a few HOS, plus a good story line then don't get this one!!

Gravely Silent: House of Deadlock CE
I bought the SE before I bought this one, thought that it was nice, too bad the CE wasn't as nice as I thought it would be.
The graphic is great, there are not many spiders, as I thought there were. The graphic is great, and very much detailed, the storyline is not new: you save your sister from evil husband, and help save his past wives as well. The story progress slowly at first, but as you move on from one level to the next, it is getting quick and you seem to finish faster than you thought you would. That is disappointing, as I wish to play longer. Still, a great game to play and I recommend this game.

Definitely one of the better ones, long enough to be worth what you pay for it and definitely fun.
Enjoyed the story, and the dark overtones, interesting characters and all.
Nice clear graphics good for searching without problem.

Lots to do and I loved it all!
Great game! Fun of stuff to do. I loved the blend of puzzles and hidden object screens. I thought they were very creative. I also enjoyed the "sets" which thought were really well put together.

good not great
The game has no voice over. Music is ok. I do not like the hint button, only says nothing to do here and since you are going all over the place to find items to use you get lost sometimes on where to go next. The HOS are not hard just a little dark to see good. Puzzles are ok.

I liked this game very much, nice challenge. I would buy even at regular price.
BUT nothing I played has come close to my favorites.

Love the macabre theme of this game!! I have found very few games on Big Fish that I do not like.
