Fantastic Creations: House of Brass Collector's Edition
More of an SE game
Whilst the game was okay, i felt it had too many short-falls to be a CE game.
First and foremost it did not cater for wide screen. The game did not run smoothly, and had big pauses between scenes. Also [for me] the voice-overs were out of sync with the scenes.
The hidden object scenes were slightly different to normal, but were all very easy, and after a while became monotonous. The puzzles were also very easy and nothing new offered.
The storyline was a little different to normal, and was relatively interesting but not captivating.
The bonus chapter was a prequel to the story, and not an essential part.
Both the game and the bonus chapter were on the short side.
Whilst I recommend this game, I'd suggest the SE version as I didn't think it was a CE quality game.

Had Great Potential......but no, didn't happen
This game's premise was good, story was working, but something went terribly wrong. It showed signs of being a top game, and it could have been, but they dropped the ball in a big way. Story became boring, challenges were simple and repetitive, and for a collector's edition, it was SHORT! Even for a SE, it was still too short. Wait for it as a DD to buy.

It was just OK
Too childish ! A bit too easy and condescending !

Sorry, but this was just "okay". Not bad, but not really good either. The puzzles were easy and fun, but the story wasn't original.A good game with a coupon.

All of the HO's are not the usual HO's. Instead you look for a # of the same type of item. They want you to play with the sound to improve your playing. I never play with sound but thought I would give it a chance. I think it is geared to a younger group. I would recommend this to children.

Great fun but for the price not nearly long enough, i'm not a fast player but finished in 3 hours, not good value for money! I wouldn't have minded so much but there was no bonus- disappointing

I am not mechanical minded, so this was not the best game for me. If you like connect-the-pipe games and untangle the ropes games, then you will probably like this game. Those are two of my most un-favorite games so skipped lots of those, and the Skip button was slower than I like. I prefer putting together jigsaw puzzles rather than clicking and moving a group of 4 pictures and trying to make a picture. The voices were not great. I didn't hate this game but I didn't love it either, but, as I said, I am not mechanical minded; I would recommend it for someone who is.
