Otherworld: Spring of Shadows Collector's Edition
Better than expected
This is a VERY beautiful game and the story is not boring. It's one of those games that just sucks you in this magical world that you will end up playing for hours and in the end you'll feel glad you did.

I must say, the info on the game is sort of misleading. I had expected a simple search to discover a girl who had run off to some sort of mythical area, but then suddenly I'm bombarded with the view of a scary creature who shatters a mirror Fiona has been hiding in and crawls out only to scare the living daylights out of you. Or, in my case, have me hugging any cat I can find and turning all the lights on. I scare easily, and though the sound quality is great, it definitely gave me a fright when the Thing popped out.
The colours are astonishingly beautiful, and the backgrounds are creative if nothing else. I did appreciate the style in which the creeps are drawn, but I just wish they were less creepy. I suppose that's my fault for not turning the game off the moment I heard the line 'I was not alone in my new house'.
All in all, if you like a scary game, I do recommend it to you. If you're ok with it but would like to be sure just in case it's not your thing, I'd play it during the day-hours and keep something warm and cuddly around. If you aren't one of those hard-core scare-your-pants-off gamers, then do not play this game. Seriously. I mean it. Don't try it and act all cool 'cos you'll be afraid to go to the washroom at night.

Good story with challenging puzzles
A good story that didn't make me want to skip the cutscenes,
good range of puzzles that had me thinking and the right level of challenge whilst avoiding the urge to hit the 'skip' button.
Overall a good balance, now where's the sequel please?

ANOTHER ONE OF MY FAVORITES!! Adventure, suspense, great storyline. Beautiful graphics.
Bonus is almost another full game. This one is definitely worth the money! Very little HOs, which I love. Puzzles are great; some of them really make you use your brain!
If you like puzzles and adventure, you will love this one!
Go for it!!

The best Hidden Object game I have played so far......
This games graphics were AWSOME!!!!! I really enjoyed the fact that this game was not as short as the other HO games. It was a confusing sometimes, I thought that the mini games were not explained enough. At the end of the game I was totally confused how to defeat the Shadow. It took me a while to catch on, this is why I think some parts of the game should have had more detailed instructions. This was a good challenge overall. The story was great, kept me in suspense.
