Midnight Mysteries 3: Devil on the Mississippi Collector's Edition
Midnight Mysteries 3: Devil on the Mississippi Collector's Edition is a great hidden object adventure game. The plot has you again playing the writer/detective with an affinity towards helping famous ghosts set right their afterlife. This time, you are helping Mark Twain. I found the story to be very interesting.
I really enjoyed this game. I loved the graphics, music, cut scenes and game play. Everything was top-notch. There are achievements in the game for attaining different goals. There is a bonus chapter, a bone-collecting game, and unlimited hidden object mode.
The puzzles were creative in this game, which is hard to find after playing so many of this type. The main game took me about 3 hours, 15 minutes to complete. The bonus game took me 45 minutes to finish. The game would be complete without the bonus chapter, but it does add to the story. Overall, this game is definitely worth trying. I certainly enjoyed it!

Great way to start a HD Strategy Game
I liked this -- it had more strategy than I originally planned on, but it was not too hard. The hints section was helpful without totally showing you the full game. Great graphics with some spooky scenes. Good use of the Hidden Objects. This is the one that got me hooked on Big Fish!

Worth the Collection Edition Price
Thoroughly enjoyed this game. A lengthy game with unusual puzzles combined with a good story line. Clovers need to be found to release an unlimited HO game. There is also a bonus chapter and a bone hunt. Needed the help of the strategy guide which kept pace with the play. Hints also available by finding ravens.
One of the best

Impressive Game Well Worth the Price
This game was absolutely amazing! The graphics were beautifully done, sharp and clear. The game lasted far longer than many HO games I've played. The storyline was interesting and unique. The best Midnight Mysteries yet!

This is one of the best HOA games I have ever played. The story, music, and the graphics were all wonderful. The ghostly element of the game is so chilling. There were times that ghosts popped up that actually had me scared. I wish I could find 10 more games like this. This is definitely the best in this series. Salem Witches was really good too. I can only hope that they make another one.

A Devil on the Mississippi...
...kept me engrossed until the bonus section was unlocked, and I had to try to find at least a few bones before closing. I've purchased all Midnight Mysteries and this was the best yet: as good as the Puppet Show series for story-telling.

Not my Favorite "Midnight Mysteries" Game
This was an "okay" game. I had some problems with it though. First of all, quite a few puzzles made no sense to me and I had to "cheat" more often than I wanted to by using the SG. Secondly, each time I opened the game, the strategy guide began at the beginning instead of where I left off. Third, the story was ridiculous and definitely could've been better. Now the good--love collecting the clovers and being transported to various places. I like the bonuses that come with Midnight Mysteries games. Hudini was my favorite though and the story was much better. I wouldn't recommend paying 13.99 for the CE to this game. Maybe if it was 1/2 price I would say try it.

It was okay.....could have been better for the CE
I think I would have liked this game better if the hints didn't depend on just finding the crows....which was only about 1 in a scene. I prefer the hint button that recharges and gives unlimited hints. I don't play a HO game for stress....I play them to relax and, if I know I'm running out of hints, that's stressful to me. I didn't play long enough to give the rest of the game more thought.....run out of hints, stop playing the game. You may like it better than I did.

JUST WHAT A GAME SHOULD BE--AND MORE
This game sets the standard for what all good games should be like. The storyline was very interesting and flowed smoothly. Being based on a real person, Mark Twain, brought an interesting historical figure into the mix. Since I was born and raised in Missouri, the home state of Mark Twain, and have visited Hannibal, Missouri, this game held a special interest for me. It made me want to buy a book about Mark Twain.
And this game has everything; a built-in strategy guide, achievements that can be won, extra HOS that can be played if you obtain the necessary achievement, an additional challenge of collecting 80 bones, good mini games, fantastic graphics, etc., etc. There was some back and forth, but not enough to be annoying. The inventory items were used quickly and provided a good indication of what needed to be done next.
By finding the ravens in a scene, you can win extra hints, but I didn't find that I needed hints that often. And the hint button was great, not only in the HOS but also when you might need to know what to do next. I did need to use the strategy guide a few times, and it was excellent.
I just can't say enough good things about this game. I intend to purchase the other Hidden Mysteries games and hope they live up to the standard set by this game.

Mystery with a Twist
As a MM detective, you can interact with ghosts of famous novelist and people! I like the creepiness of the set, and as I am not American, I can learn a lot about American novels and literature. This is game you surely don't want to miss.
