Dark Dimensions: Wax Beauty Collector's Edition
I really enjoy most hidden object games, but this one was awesome.

Don't waste your time. It's not worth it.

I love the game! It's fun, the musics and sights are beautiful, and the game was fun. It was a little scary, but fun.

The storyline is basically sis won a beauty pageant and jealous twin brother rises in the ranks of town's new wax museum. But what happened to the residents after freaky deaky earthquake. Early on it's not hard to figure that mystery out. But as to the game, it's called "dark" for a reason so the dreariness did not bother me and I have "old" eyesight. The HOGs could be difficult because a LOT of them were interactive and the areas were dark and overly jumbled. The mini-games were relatively easy. The voiceovers were clear and concise for me, although I noticed others complained about this. The hint button recharged fairly quickly. I like to play both the CE and SE free trials when available as I did this time and finished the SE with 27 minutes to spare. I will probably not purchase the CE based on the reviews of the bonus chapter. But, overall, I loved this game and Glam-Ma says go for the free trial, that's what it's there for.

Good game, not as great as others
The game was Ok. The storyline was more on the odd side. The ending was kind of lame.
Graphics were great, however, I could only play it in the evening because the colors were so dark that I could barely see what I was doing in the day time.
I also did notice, when the characters were talking, their words were not in sync with their lips......conversation was over (no more talking), but their lips were still moving.
All the HOS and puzzles were fairly easy. Did have to use the hint to direct me to next location. Towards the end when I was in the cave under the floating museum, I couldnt find what to do next so I used the hint. The hint directed me all the way back to a house (the one near the robot).....there was nothing to do at the house. So I did have to glance at the strategy guide due to the hint glitch.
I finished the game in about 3 hours.

I played this immediately after I played City of Fog so I can compare almost immediately between the two. Although City of Fog was released ages ago, I don't see much different with this one except that it has a faster skip button (I play casual) and that it is widescreen now. The story is not bad, but the SG is the same style, no index, bunch of sentences piled up together and it's not even interactive. If it's released as a sequel, it should have had better navigation. There is no map and interface is the same. One disappointing thing is that the quality of graphic which seems to go downhill. City of Fog has excellent graphic that is so lifelike. I tried to make it fullscreen, but there is no such option. Quite disappointing. I don't really care about live actors, to me they add nothing. Voice overs is better in City of Fog. Those who like City of Fog may find this game lacking. For a CE it lacks the special factor like achievements. Nothing here, quite a bland game. If the dev. ever going to release another sequel, they better fix those things!

Another Dark Dimension
Overall I enjoyed this game. It has some annoyances, but I'll start with the good things. You are off to another abandoned town searching for another dark dimension. This time all the townspeople you meet seem to have been turned into wax.
The good: Your mission is to discover what happened. The graphics, music and background sounds are excellent. The storyline is good, although it got a bit muddled at times. The mini games were fun, some were on the easy side, but still fun. The journal was useful and the built-in SG was well done. The ending of the main game was satisfying. The bonus chapter was a nice addition and the ending set up the next installment in the series.
The annoyances: The HOS were fairly dark and some items were almost impossible to see. They seemed to get darker as the game rolled along. The voice overs were so-so. Some of them were excellent, but some were poorly done. The cut scenes were done with live actors. Some of the actors were good, but some were overly dramatic.
Even with the annoyances, I enjoyed the game and recommend it.
