Redemption Cemetery: Grave Testimony
Good if you don't mind an abrupt ending....
This game is interesting, with nice graphics and good story, but the SE is only a part of the whole. The game ends all of a sudden, without warning....!!! I don't like being put under pressure to buy the CE to see how it continues... So I won't recommend the SE.

Redeem three more ghosts (and solve very easy puzzles)
This is the third installment of the Redemption Cemetery series. As usual, this game has nothing to do with the 2 games that came before.
This time around the lead in is that you are dragged to an island waiting to be killed, only that your murderers are killed before you. In order to escape the island, you have to redeem three ghosts. Sounds wacko, but serves the purpose well.
+ graphics well done
+ three different stories
+ they tried a new way for HO scenes, works quite well
+ integration of real people flawless
o sometimes slow
- most mini puzzles ridiculously easy
Bottom Line: You will get more of the same ERS stuff that you came to expect from this series. For a change you don't have t forge anything. ;-) The story works well, but sometimes it's unintentionally funny (see: shark!).

Great game, but gameplay too easy
This is another in the Redemption series that continues the great eerie storylines and really good graphics. Unfortunately it falls short of being an overall great game due to some tediously easy puzzles. I feel that this series is becoming sloppy in the level of challenge available. Hello game developers: take a hint from some of the Mystery Case Files for interesting variations on puzzle themes. However, if you enjoy a good gruesome story with fun characters, then have a play and enjoy.

Truly enjoyed this one.
First I will say that it is good for kids but great for old people! You can use most inventory items soon enough to not forget where they GO! I LOVED that. The game is fairly easy because of this and the puzzles are not so hard you do not have a CLUE! It is divided into different stories and each one is very interesting, and the graphics are great. The HOS are VERY different, and many are totally interactive, where you find an item then use it to find another. Not so hard, just very entertaining. The game was not too short, but I liked it so much I wish I had bought the CE just for having extra game time. This is really a gem, and never frustrating..

This game was very good though I found it a tad too predictable. I did not enjoy the Bonus chapter and wish I had waited for the SE version.

Detailed Hidden Object Fun
I would like more like this. The visual was entertaining and was just frustrating enough to keep me going. I would recommend this one.

NOT FOR THE CHILDREN
Opening scenes really grabbed my attention but know that this game is not for children. Although it is not graphic enough to make you jump out of your seat, it is not for the faint of heart. There is physical violence, and the narrator gives vivid descriptions of some of that violence, like saying that some people were buried alive. Narrator sounds pleasant enough; the actors' voices sound forced. Artwork depicts the gangster era of Al Capone and Bugsy Siegel, which I like, but the actors? wardrobes have a few too many modern touches.
Puzzles were varied but very easy. The story seems well-crafted and if you don?t mind the disturbing scenes, it looks like a buy. But because the puzzles are not very challenging and there is little chance of not knowing what to do next are the reasons for me not giving this a 5-star rating like the prior 2 Cemetery Redemption games.

Lots of Fun but Puzzles too Easy
I have to admit I had a lot of fun with this one, mainly because of the different twist on the HOG scenes (and the fact that there weren't tons of them). Puzzles are my favorite, especially when they really tax the ol' brain. Unfortunately, there were only a couple that were a challenge at all. Most were way too easy but some took a while to complete, so I did like that aspect. I enjoyed the music. If a good game has good music it adds quite a bit for me. (I'm a big music lover!)
I can see where some players would be disappointed because of the low challenge level. But it's still a really fun game, so I have to recommend it. I played the SE and felt I got my money's worth.

I bought this game on accident, confused it with another but decided to keep it anyways and Im glad I did because I really enjoyed it. Let it be known, I haven't been a huge fan of ERS for awhile but this game was quite enjoyable. It has 3 subplots and each story is an hour give or take so this game took me a little over 3.5 hours. Not bad.
The storyline in this game is weird. I still can't figure out what gangsters really had to do with it because not all the stories were mafia related but I enjoyed the 3 stories and kind of kept an open mind on the rest of what was going on. Unlike some other reviewers, I felt like the SE had an actual ending. Yes, it was not an efficient ending BUT compared to other SE's I own by ERS this is a definite upgrade. After saving the 3 souls, I felt accomplished so I didn't really care about the rest because as I said the beginning was confusing so the way it ended made perfect sense.
I give this 3.5 stars but rounded to 4. The music repeats and gets annoying. I did like the "new" hidden object scenes but it also had the list. They were spread out quite nicely. I enjoyed the 3rd story the best. I thought the artwork was the best done in that chapter. There was lots to do. I would have liked the puzzles to be a little harder. They were alll so easy even on the most advanced mode. It was like here turn these 2 knobs and WAA LAA you've solved it! which is why I knocked it down to 3.5 stars. Other than that though, it was a pretty enjoyable game. Kudos.

Too short and abrupt ending
This game took about 3-4 hrs to play. Puzzles were all really easy and usually took less than a minute to solve. Ending was sudden and abrupt- I was thinking- that's it??
