Silent Nights: The Pianist Collector's Edition
Fair HO game
Liked the story line would of been better with more VO
Not any more difficult than others I've played
Loved the graphics and the surprise cats jumping at you while your playing.
I found it slow to change from one scene to another. My screen was black for a one or two seconds before scene loaded.
Every thing else was pretty standard HO.
I did not purchase because of the slow change from one scene to another. If this doesn't bother you I would recommend this game.

I didn't like this one
The purpose of the story was OK, looking for your kidnapped sister during or after the II World War.
There was a good 5 second delay between each screen that was frustrating. Hints were OK. I didn't buy.

An Okay HOG...
Graphics were nice, audio was forgettable. I tried casual mode and It had a little too much hand holding (glints and sparkles) for my liking. It's basically your typical HO scenes with mini games. I might buy it when the regular version comes out. A game has to have a wow factor for me to buy the CE, and this one fell short.

loved the simplistic exit...no are u sure u wanna exit ten times to get out the game......over all it was alright..played the game a thousand times already meaning it's just like alot of other games I own already..would have loved something more creative and challenging.

lag between scenes annoying
though the lag between the scenes is annoying makes for more annoying when you accidentally change scenes, which seemed to happen more often than usual for me. I DID like the HO list at the top of the screen. The "surprises" definitely got my heart going but since I played the trial at night I didn't really enjoy the jolts. For some reason it was too easy to leave the scene and then had to wait while gazing at a blank screen. I have to agree with some of the others, I would not pay the extra for the CE and next time around a nice "filler" of some kind between scenes would be welcomed. Graphics, voice over and music were nice as well as story line. But I'll wait for my next buy.

Not worth your time
This game is way behind industry standards. The inventory bar takes too much space. Clicking frequently in HO scenes breaks a window loudly in front of your face. Very annoying. The gameplay is so so. C+. Even the cursor looks ugly and unfinished. I spent only 20 mins playing it and had enough. The gameplay is super simple and not challenging.

Slow scene changes
I would have given this an excellent rating throughout if moving from scene to scene wasn't so slow. I have never played a game that had a problem like this.

NOT A WINNER WITH THIS ONE!!
I usually can't wait for the CE's of the week although I don't purchase all of them. This one I could definitely do without, it was really boring and not well made at all. The HOS are dark and hard to see the objects. The scenes are very dull and drab hardly any color!!! The puzzles where ok and not difficult at all and to get from one scene to another took FOREVER and I have a brand new computer that is fast!! Not a winner this time BF!!

My hopes were high but bottom line, just a little too dull. Played the demo and not even going to bother shelling out the $13.99 to finish it.

Not one of the better ones
I think that I am a pretty good gamer of Big Fish and I have played a lot of games, this one not that good.
I really don't like to give poor reviews but once in a while you have to get down and do it.
This game was not to fun, not diffacult at all and the story is boring, even when I got to the Extra play I hoped it would speed up and give some really last minute greatness. But it never came.
I bought this only because of the special on Sunday and I needed one more game to go along for the special and now I wish I had of just let that one go by.
So my oponion is that this is OK for beginners but anyone with a bit of experience I don't recommend this , SORRY and I am talking about the Collectors version which is not that much more or less than the reg game.
