Resurrection, New Mexico Collector's Edition
Mum's love rules the day over baddies
This is a wonderfully enjoyable game for mums who know the pressures of having to work and the guilt at being away from your kids.
It is a terrific story line with a wonderful array of different hidden object and puzzles you have to work your way through to get out.
One of the best story lines I've played in a while.

Very well done!
I was lucky enough to do the beta test on this game and loved it then. But didn't expect to see it so soon. This is a game you are not going to want to stop playing!! It has elements of several types of games, HOG, Inventory Finds and Putting things together. Only thing is, you will need the Strategy Guide, it can get a little confusing. The art work is great and the story line is really good too. I am really glad I bought this one!!

First-Class Action Game
Great storyline, full of threats and some funny scares !
There's a lot of different locations, and characters that let you a bit confused - as the little girl and the policeman ! You do not know if they are helping you... or not
A great action game with several mini games, many HOS (not so difficult), ...well, so many things to do, and places to go that let you glued to the computer.
Graphics are gorgeous, and sound too.
Game very well done, with neat details.Worth the value!

very cool game
Haven't finished yet, but am really enjoying this game. Excellent story, that immediately caught my interest. Especially appreciate the little real-life touches; guilt over letting her daughter down, anxiety due to her inability to contact anyone. Nice contrast with the fantastical elements.
Found the HOGs a bit deceptive (in a good way). I'd be moving along alright and then "Uh, wait a sec... where the heck...?" And I'd be pretty stumped, but not frustratingly so. Also, some animated items, which I always like.
Love the graphics! There were some very cool, creepy visuals. Some of my favorites were small morphing elements that made you look twice. Keep your eyes peeled for those. There's also an excellent scene in the beginning. It's a bit of a whirlwind moment; you can't miss it. I loved it!
I liked the atmospheric music and there were some great sound effects. All in all-- a fun, creative, engaging game!

I was hooked from the first 10 minutes of the demo. I enjoyed this game more than any I have played for a long time. It was creepy, clever and a good mix of hidden object and puzzles. Difficult enough to be fun but not so hard it was frustrating. A great balance.
Only bad thing - it ended too soon! The levels seemed to get shorter towards the end and I didn't want the game to wrap up quite so fast.

Enjoyed this game and couldn't put it down as i wanted to know what happens next. Is she in Purgatory or a coma? had to find out and spent the next 4 hours doing so, loved the storyline and the HOS were clear and not too cluttered and the mini games were something new. The only reason i gave it 4 stars is because the bonus chapter was completed in 1/2 hour!!! and it just finished abruptly!! i didn't feel ready to end, for a CE i would of expected a bonus chapter to have lasted a bit longer. Overall, was a great game.

Awesome game, very well done.
HO were well hidden, but graphics are great, so they were perfect. Puzzles were not very hard but there is plenty to do in this adventure game besides HOS. The music is amazing. Story is consistent, intelligent and creative. This was a nice, long, enjoyable game. Cute, clever and suspenseful. Loved it!

Enjoyable despite bad graphics
There was a menacing atmosphere in this game that made me feel like I was truly going up against evil. Being trapped in "old" Resurrection town, yet being able to see the modern city heightened the sense of urgency to escape and return to the real world.
The location graphics didn't look very good; they were grainy and bland. The hidden object scenes were junk piles but looked better than the locations, and the puzzles were of average difficulty, with nothing too original.
I liked the adventure game portion of the story, figuring out where to use items, and also talking to the various characters in the game. Some had sad stories, and it was very satisfying to help them all out.
The bonus game is a prequel featuring one of the characters you meet in the game and it was cool to see the "other" side of existing locations. I liked the story, but it was pretty short. I probably would have just gotten the SE instead if I'd known how long it was.
Overall, a fun game that I enjoyed playing.

First rate game - enjoyable HOS, beautiful graphics (with some startling surprises that made me jump), challenging, but not impossible. Try it!

7 deadly sins
Great HOS & really good story line. The puzzles were fun & I actually got startled w/a couple of the effects! The intergrated strategy guide was helpful.
