Death Under Tuscan Skies: A Dana Knightstone Novel Collector's Edition
Grande gioco! Absolutely enjoyed this CE edition!
I love the previous Dana Knightstone mystery, and this is no exception. It started out easy but let me tell you the puzzles were at times 'puzzling.' Beautiful scenery, great narration, and text. There was a variety of things to do. I wasn't bored the least bit with game. No VOS except for Dana's narration. Still it was a great game with lots to do and again, flow is important to me and this game did just that. Pretty much up-to-date with flash drives rather than scripts with floppy discs! The bonus game was great. I rated this a 4 1/2 stars. Sure, there are more sophisticated games with special effects, you know, the works. I chuckled, however, at the character, Paolo, who always had a smile on his face even during danger. Some of the characters were quite handsome, I may add. But this game, in and of itself, was excellent and lots of fun. I highly recommend it.

I just got boored
I tried to like this but it is slow and the music puts you to sleep. No voice over and the hint button is really not much good to me. Tell you where to go but you have to remember where that place is. Most of the puzzles are easy and the HOS are also not hard and different. Just better games out there.

not as good as the first
This game isn't as good as Death at Fairing Point, for several reasons. The plot isn't as cohesive or as well developed. There are way too many "rotate and place the pieces" games and many less HOS. The bonus game is somewhat related but really should have been developed into a game of it's own. Again there is no way to turn of the lead character's overdramatic voiceovers, the puzzles are too easy, and there is a lot of leading in the black box comments. This is a bland, easy CE, not scary or violent in any way, so if you like that type of game, this is for you.

Good but complicated...........
I really wasn't happy with the amount of puzzles and how complicated and frustrating and time comsuming they were. Almost took away the fun of the game and most definitely, the plot. Anyway, no buy for me as I want a game that is fun and just hard enough to make it challenging, not work. LOL.

Recommend for Lovers of Romance Novels
Played demo only on advanced level. Beautiful artwork! Game definitely is a refreshing change from dark and gloomy, however, not my cup of tea. Moved rather slow for me and became disinterested, but that is just me.

Pretty good game. Very nice visual. Nice mystery and good puzzles. I would buy this even though no voice overs or map and no HO's.

Death to Death Under Tuscan Skies
I enjoyed the first game in this series, which is why I bought the second one. What a disappointment! Way too many logic puzzles for a hidden object game. Strategy guide is awkward to get to. Game goes on 'way too long.
