Death Under Tuscan Skies: A Dana Knightstone Novel Collector's Edition
Nice Story, OK Graphics
This game was a nice hidden object and challenge game, but for being a large sized game, and a collector's edition I expected something more in the graphics. They were ok, not really spectacular. Some of the artwork was hard to see depth or when there was a hidden object located in it. I did like the built in strategy game, because there were some mini games that were a challenge to figure out. Overall it was a good game.

Not too many HOGs
This game deserves high marks for the visual quality and the atmosphere. The HOGs are not too difficult to play and there are very few of them?I've loved that. The mini games and the puzzles are predominant, but on the easy side. In general, I wouldn't say that this game was challenging at all, but still worth playing. The bonus chapter is rather short, maybe, but it boasts of a more macabre atmosphere.

Not just a HOG...
Enjoyed the game. It has lots of puzzles, not just hidden object scenes. The graphics and music were good. Not much interaction with other characters. I don't always buy CE games, but overall glad I purchased it.

This is the 2nd Dana Knightstone Novel game I've played and I think they're both great! The graphics are beautiful and very detailed. The story is interesting to follow. The game a great balance between puzzles and hidden object scenes. Not too hard but still challenging. I'm looking forward to the next Dana Knightstone Novel game. Enjoy Death Under Tuscan Skies!

Death Under Tuscan Skies
deserved & would have got 5 star from me BUT the sparkling book in left corner at bottom very distracting & annoying & as I never use these a waste of space,the Statergy guide is much more help for those who ned is & as it is becoming more often we are seeing things like this in games I hope the developers do see our reviews,as if they continue sales will drop,I buy a LOT of BF games,most days in fact but these type are becoming more annoying to often don't even finish the game
A great game spoilt

Enjoyable Hidden Object Game
Story is nice. Gameplay fairly straightforward. Agree that the book in the left lower corner is a bit distracting whenever it sparkles (quite often). All in all, an enjoyable hidden object game that keeps your interest.

Very good for puzzle lover
This game contain more puzzle then hos, but some of them are original and sometimes not very challenging. But the graphics are very good and the storylime is also very good.

This was a really enjoyable game and I spent a few pleasant hours with it.
I liked the flow in the adventure aspect, it was not a wild ride back and forth and there was logic to the items you needed and how you used them. The mechanics of the game were great, transitioning from scene to scene and working on the puzzles was really smooth.
The art and stuff was all really well done - as is always the case with this developer. The the music got a little boring after a while, that could have been better but I liked Dana's voice. It was clear and crisp and pleasant.
While I wouldn't call this a great, fabulous, must have game of the century- it was certainly a good one and I definitely recommend it!

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.
