once again Dana Knightstone does not dissapoint
can't help but love these. I actually bought and needed the CE - it was very helpful although the hint is good so not absolutely necessary. I don't use sound so can't rate that but over all a good story like usual. finding is reasonable not rediculously hard or complicated. you help save someone. I enjoyed the game.

A story come complete
I really liked this ghost story though it's different with real people vs. monsters in other adventures.
The graphics are not Boom Zap's highest quality, but it may be the preferred style of this particular team.

Excellent Hidden Object game.
Wonderful storyline as well as hidden object game. Very enjoyable and worth the money.

So in this game, you are writer who can see ghosts! You have to help your relative find out who is the ghost with the violin, and set the past mistakes right.
I think this game's strength is in the beautiful atmosphere. I found myself in another world as soon as I started the game. It felt like home, partly because I live close to Austria. The snow, the mountains, and the music just makes everything perfect. The hidden object scenes and the mini games are cleverly made and there are just enough of them. Plus you don't have to run to and fro all the time, the tasks follow each other logically. Although the mini games weren't too hard, I didn't mind because with all the other things it was complete. The hogs were my favorite, especially enjoyed when I had to collect a specific group of objects, like fruits. The story was captivating but nor overdone. I would have liked to participate more between the scenes (like catching the train to Germany etc) but overall it was a wonderful game, I really enjoyed it! :)

Another 4 Star Game
If I was to grade this game I would give it a "B'. I have 3 of the Dana Knightstone games. Besides this one, Under Tuscan Skies and Fairing Point.They all have nice graphics and interesting story lines. However they have too many puzzles for me but most game players I think would like all 3 games despite the multitude of puzzles.

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!
