White Haven Mysteries Collector's Edition
I read the reviews of this game before I downloaded it but decided to give it a try for an hour anyway. Unfortunately the poor reviews are correct. The graphics weren't really all that fantastic and I got the impression this game was rushed to production forfeiting quality. The storyline was boring and almost predictable. The HOS were simple and frankly a couple were just irritating. I would rather do without the fancy pop-up windows in exchange for a smoother, more interesting storyline and scenery. It just seems clunky and definitely not one of the better products the developer has released. This is one of the few times I will not be purchasing the CE.

Should not have been a collectors edition ....
Completed the game in just a few hours....not really up to the standards of Bigfish I didn't think.

To me the game ran slow when you selected an item. I also was not happy with the way, when you "found" an object, that slowly appeared in a scroll looking box. I don't usually have problems with slow games. I know I won't be buying this one.

Bored beyond expectations!!
Simply not worthy of being called a CE. The story is as old as HOS games. No imagination, no creativity. The HOS could have been good, but I could hardly tell they were so dark. In my opinion it falls way below the acceptable level for enjoyment and not worth the time or money.

I found it to be a little too creepy. If you like that, then you'll love this. No music just awful sounds and screams. Yuk

Very choppy effects. (and yes I have all my computer's updates) Every time you pick something up you get a message that you have to close saying you picked something up. It's an ok game, but I wouldn't pay for it.

One of the worst
While this game has plenty of hidden object scenes the game itself is pretty awful. It ends while you still have items in your inventory and the "bonus content" is just an extension of the game. The 'real End' if you want to call it that ends abruptly with several unused inventory items. Its just weird.
The story line makes very little sense and you as the gameplayer don't escape. It was frustrating in the sense that the hint button would make you go out of the way to place one item when you needed multiples to complete the puzzle. The constant backtracking just about drove me nuts.
My advice is find another game: this one should still be in the final tweaking stages.

No real puzzles. Hidden objects were all really similar, and previously found objects reappeared when returning to the site for a second round. And the logic was stupid, there was a sponge and water, what's the need to go through a whole rigamarole to get a bottle of cleaner to wipe a window?

White is to dark
To dark of a game and WAY TO MANY HOS' . Every other scene is a hos of the type I really dislike. The story looked interesting but as far as I got in the trial, it was very easy and predictable. Quit the trial which is unusual for me.
