Grim Facade: Mystery of Venice Collector?s Edition
A dull game for entry level players
This game was developed in a big rush. The environment is very small, puzzles are simple, you do not get a feeling of being in Venice. Everything is squeezed, minor and annoying.

Beautiful, but a little too easy
The art, music, & animation is breathtaking, but I found the minigames & hidden object scenes to be a little too easy. I finished the demo in about 20 minutes.

Love the Game . . . Great Opportunity to Store Up On CE
I don't know where I was when this game came out, but I love it. The storyline is pretty good and the hidden object scenes are graphically well done. I don't know what the standard addition offers, but this, CE offeres the following -- strategy guide, earn extra hints by finding extra fans, and golds coins throughout the game. The mini-games are interesting and not at all difficult. However, you have the option to skip in the casual. Speaking of modes, you have casual and advance modes. I only played 30 minutes and with this price -- $6.99 -- I'm off to purchase.

Ers Games Studios always offer challenge Games
It is a very interesting story with gorgeous graphics and lovely puzzles.Certain puzzles were more difficult .Personally I skipped 3 of them but with a little more insistence I believe I could be solve them. Music could be little better.There are a lot of HOGS but not boring.Be carefull to colect the Fans in some of them.I enjoyed this lovely game and do not hesitate to buy it.

Not to easy for a beginner. You have to remember to get the coins during the game. The HO and puzzles can be difficult for some. You do have to move around to get clues to use. Still a good game and fun.

Very good game, and beautiful!
I absolutely loved the music and Venetian scenery, even if it was a little gloomy. Giovanni at the store was a nice touch, you can buy things from him to help you in the game.
I can't say enough about the beautiful hand painted graphics, and there were plenty of locations to give you a nice view of Venice. I've been there before and it looked familiar to me.
There isn't a ton of running back and forth, you will gradually use previous locations less and less.
There are a lot of HO scenes, more than I would have liked, however they weren't terrible.. no junk piles, objects weren't replaced after you've found them (yeay!), and the locations were inventive and realistic.
The hint system was the typical "nothing to do here" which was aggravating, but besides that it was a very relaxing game.

Beautiful, good puzzles, stilted storyline
Stunning graphics and music. Solid good quality game but missing some pizzazz.
Areas for improvement...gameplay and storyline is a bit stilted. Puzzles are great, but too many standard hidden object scenes for my liking (might be OK for others) and they are not always on the scenes you expect them to be ie, you have to wander around randomly
Decent extra gamplay.
Slow to load between scenes

I really enjoyed the demo of this. Wonderful scenes, the voice overs are great. The developers have achieved that one really feels to be in Venice. The puzzles can be challenging, I had terrible problems with the first one I ran into and it took me ages to figure out how to set the code for the door lock. The HOS scenes are very well done. Nothing is impossible to find. I loved the characters and their movements. Excellently programmed. A really impressive game. I would have bought this one, especially today as it came up as the first part of the 10th anniversary sales campaign, but I won't, because one the first reviewers let slip how the game ends and how to take out an enemy, so sadly I now see little reason to buy the game :-(.
However, I can highly recommend it.

A Fantastic, Twisting, Turning, Hidden Object Game!!
One of the best games I've played in my 3 years of Big Fish
Club participation. Storyline is a make-sense continuating
story. The challenging story makes sense to follow. Vivid colors and items the correct size in relationship to the people help in finding the hidden objects. Completely interesting in
every way. More like Mystery of Venice Collector's Edition? Bring them on!!!

A game full off variations, and a fine story.
