Weird Park: Broken Tune Collector's Edition
Very fun and creepy... but drags out.
I absolutely loved the majority of this game. The puzzles were never too hard and the hidden object scenes were creepy without being downright disturbing like most HO games out there today. The atmosphere was great a lot of the time and the story was good... up until things got weird near the third act of the game. I understand the game is called 'Weird Park', but right when you think the game is about to end at the perfect point, you are taken to this weird other world type place with surreal visuals and nonsensical puzzles. It doesn't completely ruin the game, but it's definitely not something I look forward to re-doing if I was to replay the game.
Overall, Weird Park: Broken Tunes is a very nice and creepy game with an interesting story that sadly falls apart near the end of the game.
I'm very interested in playing the second game that was just recently released!

Great hidden object game
If you like hidden object adventure games this is for you. Just when you think you are almost done, you are not. Plenty long and fun.

An easy fun not spooky game.
The game was easy with fairly easy mini games. The help button will tell you what to do next if you get stuck. It also recharged preatty quickly. The story was not really as spooky as it could of been. Also the ending was lacking for me. It well you will see when you play it. If you are looking for a fairly easy fun game to do this is for you.

I think this game might have been overlooked a bit. It has great graphics, some difficult gameplay and a fun storyline. I am playing it through for the second time and I only do this for really compelling games - so it must be good. it offers a Difficult mode (which does not seem to work in the bonus chapter). The best part features in the second half once you crack the theme park and head into the Void - the planet you go to is magical and fun.

Fun - Fun - Fun
What a great way to wile away the time. This game would have been rated higher for me if not for having to press the menu button to get to the screen guide. And of course there should have been a map for such a large game. But with that said, I really did enjoy the game. The colors are bright, the hidden objects are quite easy to locate and the story simple enough to follow without getting confused as to what is happening. The bonus chapter is also a good length. I really recommend trying this game. Have fun.

This game is like Dreamland...only better!
This was a hugely entertaining game with just the right level of difficulty and totally perfect for a rainy afternoon :) The graphics were clear and crisp and there wasn't too much running around, although I don't mind doing this! No technical glitches at all. I turned the music off as it became irritating - wonder why developers don't rank music as important as it can TOTALLY make or break a game. The bonus chapter was fun too and I was thrilled to be able to buy this game for the SE price over Christmas - definitely well worth the money :)

Weird Park: Fun but Easy
It reminded me of Dreamland but the HO scenes (HOS) were much clearer which helps immensely when playing on a laptop. Some of the HOS were replayed and the original items were back in place which I find slightly annoying but not overly so.
I enjoyed the 1 hour trial but found no real challenge to the game. There is no choice of difficulty so there are sparkles and arrows showing where to go and where to look. I much prefer to find items and HOG scenes myself and not be shown the way. As such I would only buy this game on sale or with a PCC to while away a few hours if I have no other games to play. This also makes me question the replay value. Had there been a choice of levels, I would probably have bought this without hesitation and also given it 5 stars.
I didn't use the strategy guide at all during the demo as most of the objects needed are used not too far from where they are found, so for those that don't like going backwards and forwards (or even round in circles) this may be a game for you. I also have a tendency to get lost without the use of a map but had no such problems in this game.
All in all, although I enjoyed my hour this was not something I could really get my teeth into but think that this would be a great game for beginners and for those that just want an easy few hours.

Artwork a Ten, Plot Not So Much
For some reason, game developers seem to love being stranded in a carnival setting. Not sure why, but it works here. This is a "mystery" and the plot is rather disjointed to say the least, but it's a very entertaining and colorful ride. Scenes are fantastic, particularly the last quarter of the game where you switch to a Salvador Dali-like setting.
There are voices in the game, although they are bland and might be the same gentleman doing all three or four. He does a mean Tim Curry impression though. Music is nothing special but not bad. You do have access to a journal, although I highly doubt you'll need the strategy guide provided in the collector's edition. Hidden object scenes are mostly piles, although very well drawn, though you will find some of the scattered object variety as well. Puzzles are fairly mundane and not that challenging, although they did a nice job incorporating the carnival theme.
I enjoyed the game overall, despite its flaws. The bonus chapter has a decent length, and the art is really well done. Some great cutscenes and visual effects. The game borrows heavily from both the Haunted Legends and Puppetshow series, so if you enjoyed them (as I did), then you'll like this.

It is a wierd park!
I enjoyed this game! The HO scenes were better quality than most and the game overall was able to draw me in and keep me there until I finished it!
