Redemption Cemetery: Grave Testimony Collector?s Edition
Good story, good challenge
This game was good right up until the bonus chapter. The SE is plenty long enough and the puzzles offer good challenges. Love the hint button, which will tell you (without reset) if you've cleared a room and need to move on. This is great for checking that you've gotten everything out of a space without giving away too much of what you need to do next. Having three separate mini-stories keeps things interesting and provides opportunities to take breaks without losing your place.
The videos are pretty cheesy - the acting, costumes, and dialects are so awful they're almost funny - and the audio isn't synced to the lip movements. This is a shame because the rest of the graphics, music, and sound effects are quite good.
The SE ending is abrupt, but completes the main story. The CE bonus chapter is entirely extra, so you won't be dissatisfied with just the SE. The CE adds a full additional story, but I was ready for the game to be over and felt like the extra gameplay dragged on a bit too long. If you really love the Redemption Cemetery series, however, you may really enjoy the bonus content.

Thoroughly enjoyed myself
I've always been a fan of the Redemption Cemetary series and this one was no different. I loved that they layed off the normal click and find HOS. They even made some of the HOS very interactive and entertaining. The puzzles were good and the story kept me going. I played it over 2 days of my weekend and I was completely entertained all the way through. Well done!

This game has great graphics, it looks like you're watching a tv show. The game is challenging and fun. I am put off by the demon aspect so I will not be purchasing, but if you don't mind that its a great game otherwise and the storyline is dark yet good.

Enjoyed the game up until the ending. Too sudden/abrupt. Expected more "fireworks" I guess.

Like it like all other Redemptions! Good time and worth the money!

So Not Worth the CE Price
I am not a seasoned HOG/HOP player. Most of the games that I have played have been challenging enough to make me sit and think, especially with the mini games. This game was ridiculously simple, the mini games were no-brainers that took me less than 30 seconds to a minute to complete. The other Redemption Cemetery games were much more challenging. I was VERY disappointed. I would rather have graphics that aren't A+ and a challenging game that will take me hours to complete, as opposed to something like this. I'm really sorry I purchased the CE. I say the SE would be worth the money, but not the CE.

Rush to judgement?
My error -- I was sure this would be a great game just from the opening cut scene. Oh yes, there is the stunning artwork, the live person video, but then it is just typical ERS. Even in Hardcore mode there was very little challenge. Unless of course you count the challenge encountered by some main game black bar info given in the wrong order.
Totally disconnected stories -- the first being the longest and best, simple puzzles, and a lackluster ending improved modestly but not completely by the bonus chapter?
Ah, the bonus chapter. Perhaps the most challenging of all. There certainly was some obtuse reasoning expected from the player. And one area near the end where you could not progress unless you followed the tasks in a precise order. That order, by the way, was given backwards in the strategy guide.
So, in the end, I felt ERS rushed this one out hoping the opening scene would lure you in. Unfortunately for me, it did.

Not as good as the others-Shouldn't have been a CE
After the demo I got it thinking it would get harded like the first but it didn't..I liked the different types of HO scenes, but the puzzles just didn't need much thought. I don't think I would have bought it if I knew what was pass the demo version

The least of the Redemption Cemetery Series
The earlier Redemption Cemetery games were far more satisfying. This is only mediocre. BAD acting by non-actors (developers' friends and relatives?), boring games. Sigh. Too bad.

While the graphics were great, I found the level of challenge very disappointing. I played on the most difficult level. The puzzles were EXTREMELY easy. I enjoyed the interactive HOS, but found them a little predictable. Also found the game was very short. Not quite what I expected for a Redemption game as I found the other challenging. Maybe acceptable as an SE but certainly not up to the challenge of a CE.
