Curse at Twilight: Thief of Souls Collector's Edition
Not well done
I liked the game until I had to find the fractured pieces to make up an item. The graphics were great up until finding the pieces. They were not well hidden like some of the other games I've played, so I gave this game a lower score than it should have had. The pieces were like an afterthought. The hidden object scenes were fine and finding items to use were rather difficult. Luckily, I could use the hints and the tasks along with the stategy guide to direct my moves. I would not have advanced without it, since one of the first things I had to find the screwdriver and I would never had been able to guess where it was. I don't think I will purchase this game. It is different that they combined the various game play, which makes it interesting, but it's not very intuitive and this distracts from the fun of playing.

Not my cup of tea
I just played the demo and it was not my kind of game.
It was too hard to find things, and the story got lost in the
difficulty factor for me.
Would rather be drawn into the story than spend so much time trying to find things in the dark.

I Really Tried to Like This!
So excited to read that this game is a long one, so immediately downloaded it. Started playing and noticed that the graphics were so-so. A bit disappointing, so increased the brightness to see if that would help. It didn't.
Found the game irritating with how the HOS were set up and the items you were supposed to find. Broke my cardinal rule about using the hint button, but that really didn't do anything either!
Sorry, not a buy for me today.

I Really WANTED to like this game
This game looks like it would be right up my alley, but upon playing it, I discovered that there is not a whole lot to like. The hidden objects in the game are sometimes regular HOS but other times you have to find pieces of a whole object. The size perspective is wrong and the objects are sometimes very difficult to see. The game does allow you to adjust the brightness, which is a plus.
You spend a great deal of the game going back three locations to get some object that you need to move forward. I don't mind that once in a while, but when it is the basis of the game it is a bit frustrating to me.
The game is also VERY slow at loading and loads a lot!
The plot looks typical but perhaps intereting, but to be honest, I could not muster up the interest it would take to delve deeper into it.
I may end up getting this game when it comes out as a regular edition, but with all the great CE games out there, this would not be on my CE want list.
I would recommend trying out the trial, it may be a game that you will love, but it is not one of my favorites.

I like the storyline, but the game itself was boring.

Coulda been a hit...
What happened here? Good plot, fine art, and spooky background music helped create a nice, creepy atmosphere. But there are so many irritating glitches in the gameplay I didn't even spend the full hour playing. Somebody rush to get it to market, or what? Too bad...

This game has one excelent thing; a button that allows the control of the brightness of the graphics, which are are good, The voice off is very nice and clear.
But then, right on the first scene that are lots of details locked, available only in the CE. Which means that just by playing the demo I cannot judge the interest of the CE version of the game.
Based on the demo, after just 25 minutes I got bored to death. And so, If the forthcoming SE version is just like that, then this is a no-no for me.
And that's why I can not qualify or recommend the game, nor will I buy it, because I feel I didn't have material enough to form an opinion.

Not sure why, but this one bored me. I quickly finished the trial and deleted it.

Too dark, not challenging
Not at all challenging. The brightness can be adjusted but I did not find that helpful. I thought the graphics could have been better. I played 30 minutes of the demo, that was all the boredom I could stand....
