Surface: The Noise She Couldn`t Make Collector`s Edition
Only played the demo so far, hardcore option, but haven't needed any hints or skips yet. The text which flashes up makes it obvious what to do and what with. Liked the puzzles which are different from the usual ones but not difficult, map for getting around very handy. HO scenes quite easy, not interactive. I probably won't buy it because it's a CE and I don't think they're worth paying double for, but if it ever came on offer I'd buy it straightaway.

Enjoyed it--good game!
Played the full hour of the preview, and enjoyed it. Not as difficult as some of the other ones out there, but sometimes that's a good thing! HO scenes were clear, and items not too hard to locate.
Will probably buy the SE when it's released.

A refreshing change of game style
I just started playing the bonus chapter and This game is pretty cool! The setup of entering the girls mind to solve the tasks is very original and awesome.
One of my biggest peeves in HO games is how to solve a puzzle in one room, you have to go to 3 or 4 other rooms and do stuff there and THEN you can go back to that puzzle. Some HO games it feels like every step foward you take 4 steps back. However since we're in the poor girl's metalscape, it makes a ton of sense that thing are all twisted and surreal. It doesn't feel like we're wasting time going thru more than one room as time barely passes in the astral plane. so there's not much pressure to hurry even when we have to out out the girl on fire. It also explains the random piles of stuff to go thru. I love it when the game designers actually give a explanation for the piles of junk with that hourglass that you ALWAYS find on the list. There is an hourglass in every HO game I've ever played.
The CE bonuses are so-so. I'm not happy with the wallpaper, as there was some BEAUTIFUL backgrounds in this game and the wallpapers are of people. It bugs me when it's people and not the awesome backgrounds.
at the end of the game the girl comes to work for you the psychic, and that's cool and all, but I find the bonus chapter is her having some sort of relaspe. It would have been way cooler if the bonus game was a new patient and Liza was still ok.
All in all. I am glad I bought this game, but I wish I bought it when BigFish was having a buy one CE get one free and I would have made this the freebie.

Throw in a little psychology!
Although the actual graphics of the game and the HOS were less than I had hoped for, I did thoroughly enjoy the storyline. It's not often you get a little psychology with your gaming lol :).
I also thought the interjections from Jane's mind to reality were neat too.

Another good game
I liked this game right away. I just wish the topics would change and not be so morbid but I guess we have to have the good and evil stuff.

Almost five stars
I like this game the only thing I wish for more is interaction in the HO scenes. Story was great music was good and the help button really helped when stuck.

Good game, but have played better
I did really like the story plot in this game, but nothing really special.

Played Demo and was not my cup o tea
I found this game very confusing as to the story line.
I definitely needed help with hints as to what to do and I did not care for the puzzles, but I usually am not a puzzle person.
I guess I am in the minority in not really liking this game all that much.

Good; like the other Surface games better
This a pretty good game, but I dont think it was as good as other Surface games (first and third one).
Graphics were excellent, although the acting by characters was not good in my opinion. The acting was actually annoying and lame. The subtitles did not match up to their actual speaking; it was way off time wise.
Storyline could have been better.
HOS were very easy and not too many of them.
Puzzles were also very easy.
There was a map which was useful since there was so much backtracking.
Hint button was not useful when trying to figure out where to go next. It would just have a pop-up in center of screen telling what you need to do, but it didnt always tell you where exactly to go.
Bonus play was ok, but I did not like having to return to the girl every time we found one of her memories. She was so slow putting her hand out for you to give her the memory.
