Death Upon an Austrian Sonata: A Dana Knightstone Novel Collector's Edition
Spoiler Free - Death upon an Austrian Sonata, Dana Knightstone
I enjoyed this one.
It was a nice balance between hidden object scenes and story. I played it on easy and I think it may have been a bit too easy. The mini games were simple as well.
I believe I used the strategy guide all of two times which means that I did well on my own. It also means that I didn't really need the strategy guide. I don't know how long the bonus gameplay was but I hope that it was enough to make it worth paying the extra money for the CE.
It took me just under 5 hours to finish - it tells you how long you took, that's how I know. At this point I don't really feel that it was worth it to get the CE. Perhaps that will change when the SE is released and I see how much of the game was bonus gameplay, but right now I wish I'd waited.

SO FAR THE BEST I HAVE EVER PLAYED!!!
A writer with the ability to sense "ghosts" is called to Austria by a distant family member, he also can sense "ghosts"...and the fun begins...
-The storyline is beyond brilliant~
-The story takes you to so many different location, I mean a
a lot!!! More then I have seen in any "Hidden Object" game,
I was absolutely amazed, this was way beyond any game I
- The crisp and clean visuals made it impossible not to like
this game 100%~
-The HOS were very different in so may ways..you will see.
I looked forward to the HOS~
- The music was appropriate for the concept of the game,
not loud and annoying~
I LOVED THIS GAME, MY FAVORITE BY FAR, and I have
over 50-60 games I have bought
BUY THE GAME AND HAVE AS MUCH FUN AS I DID!!

I really like these games!
Here's another gem in this series. I love the story line and the artwork. The mini games are mostly great and the music is fairly easy to ignore. A very enjoyable time for me!

No demons - hurray!!
I have played all the games and loved them too! HOS are easy but that's OK! Better than getting frustrated. LOL. It's a pleasant change from all the demon infested games out now. I have played the others and yes Dana Knightstone fans will love it!

Simply Breathtaking ...
This is by far the best game I have played on Big Fish Games since I became a member almost 2 years ago!
Beautiful graphics, gripping love story with bittersweet tragedy, excellent voice-overs and a nice mix of mini-games and HO scenes.
I didn't want this game to end, and loved the added Epilogue Chapter that comes with the Bonus Content. Going to be buying the two previous games in the series and can't wait for the next one!

A Haunting Ghost Story with a Touch of Romance
As with the previous game, Dana Knightstone novels offer classic ghost stories with a touch of romance. This time Dana is out to help her dying cousin who also has the ability to see ghosts. He is being haunted by a beautiful violinist that apparently drowned under mysterious circumstances. Dana must find clues and locate the missing musical score in order to uncover the mystery behind our Musician's tragic death. The storyline is good and Boomzap have managed to once again design a game that offers stunning graphics, good voice-overs, a haunting musical score and somewhat interesting game mechanics. There are three playmodes to choose from; however I found that even in hardcore, there was too much guidance with the black bar tips. I liked the fact that there are no sparkles throughout the game but like I said, there was still to much hand-holding. There were different varieties of HO scenes and they all were interactive and fun to play. Some of the Puzzles and mini-games were unique but were not very challenging. You have a diary that also has the SG which follows your progress. There is no map and there are achievements to earn throughout the game. I enjoyed the overall look of this game; it looks very stylish and it did run very smoothly. There are six chapters and I managed to just complete the first chapter during the demo period. I personally enjoyed the game mechanics although I thought it could have been a bit more challenging. I cannot give this game a perfect score as I thought it was a little too easy to play but I did find the game rather entertaining. I am also a sucker for romance and do think that there might be more to the story and am eager to find out just who is behind the tragic death of our beautiful violinist.

Great winter fun!
This one's great fun, I promise! There is a lot to do and to explore, unfortunately without a map, but thank god, with a very good hint system, telling you what to do next. We have a good balance of interactive HOS and welldone puzzles, some new and not too challenging. - Wellmade notebook. - 3 modes to play. We can earn 14 achievments, but there are no collectables... Graphics are sharp and clear!
Yes! I recommend this game!
