Margrave: The Curse of the Severed Heart Collector's Edition
I thought this game was simply OK. The graphics weren't as crisp as other games I've played recently, and the storyline was lacking. The bonus game play was very short, almost like it was an after thought.
The HOS were numerous and a bit challenging (I like mini games more than HOS so take it for what it's worth). The mini games were not complicated except for several that were the same premise, but changed; for example same game each time, but different shapes had to be formed...kind of hard to explain.
Not sure I would recommend this game or not. I only completed it so I could say I completed it.

Not what I expected
The game started w/ great potential but went downhill quick imo. Storyline was bland and wasn't fun to explore. The upside was the HO areas, which were done great...not tiny objects but well blended into place making it a challenge. Overall all, game was short (about 3 hrs for me), puzzles were boring and I wasn't thrilled w/ the card game. I wouldn't recommend at full price but perhaps a DD.

witchcraft and spirits
I do not like games with witchcraft and demon spirits, therefore this game is not for me.
If you wonder - then check out the trial version before buying. I am thankful I played the trial version first.
I will not buy it.

Short and dull
Very short game with repetitive puzzles and corny voice acting

Trite! Nothing about the game was very challenging. Disliked the awful music and pretentious soundtrack.

Interesting storyline...I had not played any of the other Margraves prior to this one, so certain things were unexpected. The graphics were good, stunning in parts. One drawback...the voices. Ugh! Edwina was fine, but some of the others were seriously lacking...actually took away from the enjoyability of the game. Once you get past those, fun game.

This is surely one of my favorites now! Gorgeous graphics, the kind that you wish you could actually explore physically. They provide a truly great aura for the playing experience.
Love the story line, the multitude of great puzzles, and there is not a plethora of HOS, but still just enough for me. I love the challenge of the puzzles more than the HOS. The voice overs are really good and your inventory is separate from your info, such as flyers, pieces of newspaper etc. Those info sheets carry some major clues. I am looking forward to the next Margrave!
I had so much fun doing this one!

good game the other one is better
This one is ok. To much talking. At least it did have voice over but a little to much. The HOS were very hard because of the dull screen and small objects to find. The puzzles were ok. Lots going on and have to go from one area to another just to not find things needed. Have 2 sets of item board which was a little confusing to me. The other newer game is a lit better.
