Witch Hunters: Stolen Beauty Collector`s Edition
A lot of traveling..
It's a long game. What took the 'fun factor' away from it for me, was traveling from one part of a scene to find one measly item and then do it all over again. If you have a lot of time to spare, with nothing to hurry you, it's fine. However, it gets long and tedious after a bit.

What Makes This A Collector's Edition?
This is an okay game. No better than others. Same old thing. A witch, dark rooms, black swirling clouds. Lots of hidden object games and nice puzzles. Graphics are good. The reason I gave this game just two stars is you pay for a Collector's Edition, but there are NO extras. The price for this game should have been for a regular game. Wait until it comes out as a regular game and save yourself some bucks.

No CE material
This review is from the demo only because I won't buy it, at least not as a CE.
These days a CE needs more than just some wallpapers and sketches.
There is a lot of running back and forth right from the start. No map, not to talk about interactive. Not even a journal!
I always turn the music down, so I can't comment on this.
Here even the sound got on my nerves from the very beginning and I had to turn it really low. This owl is just awful.
No hint system to talk of. Outside the HO-scenes the hint button is not really helpful, it even sort of led me astray one time.
HO-scenes are okay, but for the "interactive" bits you just have to click on the sparkles and the item will be revealed.
All in all, this game leaves a lot to be desired.

Really wasn't crazy about this game. I kind of couldn't wait for it to be over. The graphics were beautiful but very hard to figure out at times and inventory items didn't always seem to make sense where they ended up being used. I did like using the "special powers" but there was so much back and forth, back and forth that it just took a lot of the fun out of it and made it a bit aggravating. I wish there was a map. This game was only ok.

13 minutes..can't stand that ouuuu ouuuu no more....
Too bad, the game seems interesting, but when you play hard core and you stick into a scene or two 13 minutes like i did and you have that quite annoying ouuuu ouuuu screaming at each 10 seconds or so, well you quit!!!!

Very so-so, shoddy SG/hint system
Same old, same old. The storyline is very much a retread. The HOGs are pretty cluttered. The puzzles are very easy. The hint system was great until I couldn't find 1 of the 3 buttons I needed to continue. It kept telling me to look elsewhere, and the strategy guide didn't have the answer, either. I became stuck and frustrated, so I quit the demo early, which I almost never do. Save your money!

I just wasn't very impressed
I wanted to like this but didn't. I don't think it gave enough help as to where to go next and what I was really looking for or trying to do. I know "hard core" HO lovers probably liked the challenge, but I like to play the HO games for just plain fun and relaxation....this one didn't give me that. I just was never sure what I was looking for and why. Sorry to all those who did love it.

I couldn't stand playing this game long enough to make it through the demo. It's an awful, tired story that isn't even well told. The artwork is mediocre as is the game play. HOS are cluttered. There isn't much positive to say about this stinker. Make sure you try it before you buy it.

So easy it's boring
The first thing I noticed was the music, which was supposed to be Night on Bald Mountain by Mussorgsky. It seems the person who rearranged the score made his own changes.
The story is lame. Something about a grandmother who reluctantly tells a story and inadvertently conjures up an old enemy who tries to steal her youth. There is so much wrong with that concept, I don't know where to begin.
The artwork is bad. It looks sloppy.
The puzzles are so obvious and easy that they are insulting.
I didn't like this one at all.
