House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets Collector's Edition
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

Not interesting CE Ever!
Well, Just another Boring CE, I dislike it coz the HOG scene are Hard ( the object sometimes small) , Boring Music , but great in Graphics and Voice over ! not Stunning like other CE ~
I think Stray Souls and Sacra Terra is Better than this!
P/S - Try it First, Then U will know :)

Now this is my kinda game!
Haunting, cool, doesn't try too hard like many others do and it delivers a great story line! Enough said.

Good, But Not Five Stars
The Story line was a little disjointed and I never really knew why I was helping all of these dead people, but it was pretty fun to solve their problems and provided a premise to play the game.
The challenge and variety of game play was the strength of this title. Visuals and sound were acceptable, but didn't really convey a pleasing atmosphere.
The bonus chapter was very good and I felt it was worth the price of the CE. There are also 35 beyond objects to find.
I did enjoy the game and will play it again some time.

The Other Side Of The Coin
I'm a senior citizen and I can't keep up with the depth and speed needed to play most of the games the youngsters seem to go for. I played this one, got through it without having read cheats and for someone of my age I found the game intriguing and delightful to play. At very good game at a comfortable speed for the "not so Young" Quite good overall.

After a bit it just seemed like I was going through the motions. It was fun at first, but the visuals were rather horrible. Some scene noises were annoying and I had to turn them down. It was fairly easy, even with some of the puzzle scenes. I am not sure I would play it again though. Pretty good for a beginner, I would think.

This is good. Graphics are excellent. Puzzles are fairly difficult, takes me hours to solve it. Storyline is good too, keeps you on the edge. And the CE is totally worth it. The bonus game is equally difficult and I'm addicted to it.
I would definitely recommend it.

I absolutely loved this game.
The storyline was awesome, graphic were great, music was just okay.. but definitely not as bad as some I have played. The voice overs were well done, as were the characters.
What I loved about this game in particular was the map. Not only did it show the active rooms but you could also travel from place to place with it.. which in my eyes was fabulous. It gave you a lot more time to experience the game and mini-puzzles without having to go back and forth the long way.
If you are looking for a great game, give this one a try.. I doubt you will be disappointed.
