Dark Dimensions: City of Fog Collector's Edition
I have the SE and I haven't played this game for so long, but then the sale came in and I bought the CE. I think this game is getting better since the last time I played it, of course this may sounds weird but I never really pay attention that time, now that I see the graphic is really detailed, nice story, good puzzles, I am glad that I also bought the CE. One thing I don't like is that they don't have widescreen. The SG is also pretty basic and there's a lot of backtracking since it has no map feature. But all in all I love this game very much: nice music, creepy atmosphere. Really good to play at nighttime. I can't wait to play the sequel in the series!

This is a very fun game! I love the storyline, the sights and musics are very pretty, and it is awesome.

This game is not too complicated, only had to use the guide a few times.
I wish I had bought the SE game as the extra game play didn't take me long to complete. However, it was nice to have the built in guide. I buy the CE games for the guide and extra game play only.
Over all, I enjoyed the game as it had a lot of HOS.
I recommend this game to anyone that does not like the harder games!

good game with only few flaws
Not a bad game. The graphics are good and so is the music. The HOS are different in that you have to use items in the scene to complete other items there also. Not hard. The puzzles can be hard and the problem with me is the skip button takes forever and I mean forever. Has a pretty good flow to the game.

It took me a few weeks to even give this game a trial as I just assumed it was another creepy abandoned town game. Well, it sort of is, but the graphics are so well done that it makes the game play pleasurable. It may not bring anything new to the table but what it does bring, it does very well. Also, the CE is rather long, clocking in at at least 4 hours.

Fun with Fog
I enjoyed this game. You travel to an abandoned town covered with fog to attempt to discover what happened. Along the way you meet several ghosts of townspeople who help move the story along. There are lots of places to visit in and around the town. The graphics are excellent, the voice overs are well done, the music is not annoying, the HOS are fun (a mix of traditional and interactive), the mini games are excellent and the story had a satisfying ending.
The bonus chapter was a nice addition, but not necessary to the main story. The SG was excellent and very helpful when you get stuck. The journal was helpful.
My only complaint with this game is some of the HOS are very, very, very picky about where you click things to select them. Some items are incredibly picky. It became really annoying by the end of the game.
Overall, I enjoyed this game and recommend it.

I enjoyed it
It took me a little while to get into this game and I was almost put off by the number of HOS. However, most of the HOS were very interactive, others were simple and all were crisp and clear. The graphics and story were well done. There were few VO's but they also were done well. Puzzles were average difficulty. There was no map and it did create more challenge but the back and forth was not severe. The journal was sometimes helpful in pointing you in the right direction. The Hint button showed an objective in the scene but not necessarily one that can be completed. It stated when there was nothing to do. There was a nice Bonus Chapter in the CE but no collectibles or achievements which I found disappointing. Otherwise it was a fun game. I enjoyed it.

Fun Game to play!
I am playing this game right now and I haven't finished it yet. I have come to an area where there is the theme of "black magic" which I DO NOT like in these games. I probably wouldn't have purchased it knowing it was in this game...and so far, this is the only negative with this game for me. So maybe that tells you something...it really is an enjoyable game otherwise. I enjoy looking around and looking for things and trying to figure out what to do next. I will say when I began this game I missed something at the first scene and because of that, I had trouble figuring what to do next at a later point...so That was when I used the strategy guide to see where I went wrong...when I backtracked to the missed item, then all went smoothly again. I had to skip some of the puzzles after trying them for a few minutes...I would have appreciated a "start over" button on the puzzles. All in all this is a good mystery game and the HO scenes change from looking to find the items listed to using a "tool" found in order to find a listed item...anyway, I enjoyed all of those! I can't say if the CE version is best yet or not...from what someone else has said, it should be worth it for an hour more of play!
