House of 1000 Doors: The Palm of Zoroaster Collector's Edition
This does not have any of the fun and unexpectedness of the first one. While the first one wasn't exactly original storywise, the gameplay so fun. The puzzles and HO were fun and integrated very well into the whole game.
I'm sorry but this round is absolutely boring. I wish I could be more specfic about why it's not as fun as the first one, I just don't even care if I get through this one.
I think you'll get a full picture if you play the demo because beyond the demo there is nothing different or new you'll be missing.
Too bad really looked forward to this.

Same Ole, Same Ole
The sequel to House of 1000 doors: Family Secrets. With the same familiar characters. The graphics are very good, music eerie but not annoying or obtrusive. The text is awful small. Very hard to read unless you lean into your computer.
There is a map that lets you ?beam/transport? yourself to different areas, eliminates the to & fro. It also indicates if an action is available to perform. Makes it easy to find something to do if you get lost, it also is a deterrent to figuring out stuff on your own. Options for screen size and casual or advanced mode. There is no penalty click for HOG.
Having played the predecessor I was excited to see this game come out. After reviewing the demo this is a no purchase for me. The story is basically the same. There are a lot of HOG?s. I am so tired of adventure HOG. This is the second demo I played today, the other being Sprits of Mystery Song of the Phoenix CE, it cannot compare. The HOG?s there are much more interactive, not just a point and click. While I am not fond of HOG, the way they are used there may just change my mind. My money will be better spent there.

I would have really liked this game if it were more challenging. I played on hard mode but the number of tips given to you took away any possibility of challenge. The puzzles were super easy as well. If you enjoy the challenge of the Mystery case files games you might not enjoy this.
the graphics and story line are cool, in fact, the game would have been great if it weren't so boring. Good if you want something relaxing.
