House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets Collector's Edition
I enjoyed the game immensely. A good relaxing, do not have to think to hard game. It is not to hard and not to easy. Plus I always like bonus games after the main game. It is a pretty good story, although the story is not as important to me as the mini-games. A decent amount of mini-games-not to difficult. I would recommend this game. ENJOY!!!

Collector's version well worth it.
I haven't purchased a collector's game in quite awhile. I was wondering if the game play would be worth it and I was pleasantly surprised. It has great graphics and was pretty extensive. I don't usually spend this amount of time on a game but the makers put a lot of time and effort into this! If you play a lot of strategy/adventure games then you will find the little puzzles pretty simple at times, however the game itself was worth it the collector's price because it was about the length of two games and very well done.

At last a long game
At last a game that last's more than 3 hours. I enjoyed the layout of this game and plenty of HOG
This was a must buy for me and hope a new one comes along soon.

Great hidden object game
I'm used to Mystery Case Files, this was not Mystery Case Files, but over all...it was a very fun game. The puzzles in this game weren't that hard, but still required a good skill level. I really enjoy this game and didn't have to ponder over the puzzles for hours. They were able to be figured out at a medium level, Also, the in game strategy guide was very helpful on the few (ok i'm lying) occasions that I needed it. The hidden puzzles didn't take hours to figure out either. There wasn't anything I didn't like about the game. I really loved the story line... a house that could appear and disappear at will. The audio as well as the visual were up to par and really made the game enjoyable. I also like the fact that during the hidden puzzle you had to use object a and b in order to get the clue. Meaning if you need a to find a red swan, you needed to click the red paint and then on to the swan to make it red. The applaud the designers and creator of this game. This game all-in-all had a great feel, great story line, great characters and excellent game play. I recommend this game to everyone. It deserves it's number one stop on the top ten, Great game!

no standard version?
I really like this one. Cool story, great visuals, intriguing atmosphere. The puzzles were challenging and fit the story and weren't impossible to complete. It seemed to be interesting and time consuming, but I tried the trial on this one and when it was up I would've purchased it, but all I could find is the "collectors edition"... The CE's offer nothing for me to justify paying twice as much. Good game though.

Good Intermediate Game
Graphics were great, sound was good. The mini games were simple, but the game itself was a lot of fun.

What Happened To The End??
I have played both the Standard Edition, and have just finished playing the Collector's Edition, of House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets, and I have to say the Collector's Edition was a bit of a disappointment, and I feel slightly cheated. Not the game itself, which I love, but the abrupt, unsatisfying ending. This and the other House of 1000 Doors games are among my favorite Hidden Object games, and I have purchased both the Standard and the Collector's Edition of each one, and think they are fantastic. I love the stories, and the games are beautifully done, with clear graphic, unlike some games, where the rest of the game is great, but when you reach a Hidden Object Game, the artwork is so blurry and indistinct, you can barely recognize a dog as a dog. I never have the music playing I find it annoying and distracting, so I can't comment on that, but I love the story line. Having played House of 1000 Door: Serpent Flame, Collector's Edition, and absolutely loving it, I expected something similar from this game, but the ending, or in my opinion lack of an ending, meant I am less enthused about this game. If I had stuck to the Standard Edition, and not played the Collector's Edition, I would have given 5 stars, but this one only rates a 3.5, (I gave four, because I couldn't bring myself to give it 3, but there isn't a half score). I really hope there will be more 1000 Door's games, as I think they are wonderful. But I will stick to the Standard Editions in future
