Surface: The Noise She Couldn't Make
Fun and easy, too
I liked this game. The video/voice-overs could have been better, but all-in-all it was fun, not too challenging, but not so easy that I felt bored the entire time playing it. I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a variety of puzzles, those aren't just hidden objects.

Very intriguing story
I played this demo when it first came out in CE and didn't purchase until a sale on this game in SE tempted me to buy. I wish I would have gotten the collectors edition because I love the feature of searching for "special" hidden objects throughout the game with added achievments as well and this version didn't have either. With that being said this game was still fun to play with wonderful graphics and a really good storyline. I liked the fact that as a psychic delves deeper and deeper into "Jane Doe's" mind you get a different setting to play in such as a desert, an oasis,a house,a town etc. Very clever way to be able to use different scenery. The HO's are very well done and puzzles are somewhat challenging. It also has a map for traveling and checks off the areas that have been completed. Overall this is a good game to purchase.

I really liked playing this game. One of the things I thoroughly enjoyed was that the HOs were pretty. I've been getting tired of ugly games....destroyed or dark graphics. It's nice to see pretty scenes. I liked the story line as well and how it related to the game play physically. The mini games are fun and doable! which always makes the game more fun as a whole. the only thing i can say i didn't care for was alot of talking....more than usual. All in all this game rocks and you will enjoy playing it!!!

Too many cut scenes but it makes the story. I liked it. Lots of fun. It is different from other HOG's more adventure like. To me that's a bonus.

I gave this 4 stars because all it lacked was interactive HO's. Other than that it was almost a perfect game.
-didn't need the SG
-games a little on the hard side for me
-hint button is great

Return to Surface
This is the second Surface game I've played. It is an excellent adventure although I did not find it quite as absorbing as Mystery of Another World. The game map now includes indicators for areas with open tasks which saves a lot of running around, searching for missed inventory. The HOS are all static, which is also a change from the first game. The story is a bit more abstract, with the game world as a beautiful and creative representation of someone's mind that you are probing. This, coupled with scenes linking to a parallel story that is occuring in the 'real world' made for an interesting experience. Hints are provided but, in most cases, inventory is used in ways that make sense and you are guided by clues if you are paying attention. I am looking forward to the next Surface release!

What a great game!
People seem to either love this game or they don't. I loved it. Wow, what creativity!
Thank goodness for the hint feature. It worked very well for me. Actually, it advances the story nicely, so I didn't feel too bad for relying on it once in awhile. After I got into the story, though, I found myself using the hint system less and less.
Some of the mini-games repeat themselves. I skipped a few because I didn't want to repeat them, and there are some obvious repeats in scenes, but the creativity is definitely there...to the point to where this game is truly deserving of the high praise it's received.

I like this little game.....nothing offensive or too outlandish about it. The story became more interesting as you played and realized why she can't talk. Definitely need the CE addition. The graphics and hidden object scenes were excellent.
The only negative distractions were the poorly done cut scenes with the nurse and the actors. Not sure why this seems to be a problem in a lot of games. Possibly the actors are not in sync with the level of intensity or storyline when they shoot their parts. Some of it is just poor script.
Overall.....play the trial and make up your own mind. It really does get better.

This was a high quality game..
I really liked it:
Excellent graphics and Sound
Story was ok
Challenging with some nice new mini games
Loved that the HOS games were less than normal, they get old to me a bit... More time to play!
Really love the animal interaction, this one did not have as much, but still cool...
Not too long.,... I didn't lose interest, this one was the perfect length and had lots of different scenes.
The quality is outstanding, I would definately recommend!

Should come with an age warning!
This game is typically Elephant game, very good graphics, storyline, etc. I do protest the theme of the game in that it is about a teenage girl with a split personality; at one point, her other (evil) personality wants her to kill her uncle. Definitely one of the more over-the-top themes. Sorry, Elephant, you went too far with this storyline.
