The Torment of Whitewall Collector's Edition
Mostly HOS, with puzzles as well
Graphics are crisp and clear. Very good strategy guide with pictures and text. Map that lets you teleport. Outside of HOS, hint points to task, or in direction you need to go. Beautiful Latin music, which seemed out of place in old England. Good story about a mad scientist, but there are so many HOS. I like a good adventure/story, but this story is broken up with the huge number of HOS.
Good vocals, except the characters' accents were from all over the place. The little boy who helps has an American accent, and a few others sound American as well.

Good little Detective Story
Yes another detective story, many women have gone missing, and you have to find out why. Its been done before, but this was pretty good. There is inneraction with the characters, your not going back and forth to find items alot, It takes place in the 1700's, maybe early 1800's. Characters do help you thru the investigation, Some of the HO scenes were hard to click and receive an item, but overall not a bad little detective story.

It's a go for me :)
I think the reviewers are a bit harsh on this one,,,but each to his own. I am enjoying this game. There is a lot to do and I think the story line is just fine. I bought this game and I do not regret it one bit.

A Great game!
I didn't really think I would care for this game. It started off kind of slow but as you get further into the game and the storyline takes affect you become so involved you won't want to stop playing. I was disappointed when the FT ended. I did get to play both the CE and the SE but didn't need the Strategy Guide at all - the hints worked great. The HOGs were not difficult to spot the items, even the "hidden" ones and the hint button regenerated very quickly both in and out of the HOG. If you follow the hints you can follow the game very well. The graphics were bright, the voiceovers clear and concise. I think this is a game for everyone from beginners to experts. This glam-ma gives both the CE and the SE a two-thumbs up. At least give the FT a whirl - what can you lose?

Think its a pretty good game.
I saw alot of bad reviews on this game an its not a bad game, voice overs where done well, story was not so bad, The game really kept my interest, so I dont understand what was so wrong. HOG's where a little easy but all in all this was a great game an deserved better reviews in my opinion, I bought it an I'm not regretful that I did.

Same old thing
Once again it just seems like we're playing the same game over and over with just a tiny bit of difference and for a collectors edition I prefer something a little more original. For me there are far too many h.o. scenes and the mini games are far too easy even though I am playing on a difficult mode. Not for me I'm afraid.
One day we might get something original again.

Meh! Not for me.
A little too linear, the story is poorly put together and the HO scenes are boring, In fact the whole game is boring and under the circumstances the characters are much too complacent, the dialogue is very poor..

Does In A Pinch
This game is just ok, but with nothing else to play, I'll probably buy it when it goes on sale. Doesn't merit CE status. HOS are not clear enough. Dialogue is too lengthy. But at least you can click to continue. Cut scenes are slow and take up a lot of time.

Not CE length or really quality
With the bonus added to me playing the regular part of the game on normal mode - there was easy/normal/hard. With both parts of the game together it was still a lot shorter than some SEs ive played in the past... Quality of graphics were I felt lack of sharpness and clean edges in both scenes and HOGs.
I have seen Worse graphics and tons better... If it was a SE I would say they could have gotten away with the graphic quality... Not enough active spots in each scene led to some boredom...
A plus was decent voiceover.. The bonus didnt take long at all.... Def. not worth twice the price of CE... Easy and didnt need their map. which was of every active spot only about where you were.. Mini games were easy... Never even used or Opened the Strat. Guide... so I bought and played but most CEs I will go right back in and replay.. Not this one>> they got my money cause I needed a new game.. Not worth it.. I do recommend, But as a SE...

Not a bad game.
Hmmmm. Not a bad game, not exceptional either. Graphics are pretty good, but a bit grainy. Nice voice overs (always a plus for me). Music not bad either. Game play seems good. Didn't care for the constant swaying of the characters..made me think of Captain Jack Sparrow.
Hint system worked well. SG not bad, not wordy like a lot of them. On the fence about this one. Yes, I do want to find out what is happening, but I prefer knowing how long the game is before I purchase one. I did like this one (not love it) and will probably purchase later, but not sure it is worth the CE price. Just didn't feel like a CE. Seemed too short, but I could be wrong.
I actually want to give this a 3.5. For now, this one goes in my puddle for later, before tossing into the pond with the rest of my games. As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may really like it, or not. Thanks for the reviews.
