Surface: The Noise She Couldn`t Make Collector`s Edition
I've played this game before.
After the first Surface game, I leaped at this one and bought it without even downloading the trail. Within minutes I knew that I had played the game before. I never finished before because there were problems and it kept on hanging. I also believe it was called something else. So, that was my first disappointment. I really believe Elephant or BFG should have acknowledged in some way that this was a reworked game.
Now to the game itself: it is a delightful concept, if again a bit dark, about the two sides of one girl being helped by the psychiatrist (you). It is an interesting story, but has a lot of to-and-fro-ing which irritates me. I hate having to cover the same scenes over and over again. In the fist surface game I was delighted by the artwork and freshness of the plot and scenes, but because this game was designed years ago, I found none of that.
I have not finished the game.

It is hard when you can figure if you like a game or not. I found some of the logic weird and that I really had to use the hint much too much. Was hoping it would be a keeper as the games coming thru have not been challenging at all.
Still waiting.............might also add the 1st of this series was great.

surface, the noise she couldn't make
TOO much jumping around without any direction. Not fun when time is a wasting.

I enjoyed the game play. The sound and voice over well done. It wasn't as good as the first surface game but it wasn't as bad as some of the games I have tried recently. Colors were vivid and story line was pretty well done.

Like a turtle
Moving around in this game is too slow. I only played the preview. I would buy it for this reason. I don't like to wait.

What the heck???!!!
For the first time in my life, I can't make up my mind about a game!
The intro is excellent, but after that... is it good? is it bad?
Normally the Elephant Games team deliver very interesting games, so I wonder.... are they testing the gamers' IQ's?
I can't recommend it. Notwithstanding, I can't not recommend it.
But I already had a good laugh about my incapacity to decide.

I had high hopes, but was disappointed. Don't like the storyline.

Well-Made HOG, though strange.
Based on the free trial, this game was easy in terms of navigation and HO levels. You can use thew map to travel instantly to any location (which I like in any HOG), and hidden objects are very easy to find. The psychic theme of the game is strange and it seems to go into the psychology of the human mind. In real life, I don't believe in psychic people, but I think this is a better HOG than others.

Fairly Ok, But Not As Great As Its Prequel
It was fairly ok, but not as great as its prequel, purely because of its predictable Noise storyline. Play to find out why...

When I saw Elephant had put out a new game I was excited but the game was nothing special, much to my disappointment. It wasn't BAD, it just wasn't great, either. It didn't seem to have very many HO scenes or puzzles; I guess it would be a good intro into the genre for beginners.
