Chimeras: Tune of Revenge Collector's Edition
Forgot about the extras
Game kept my interest with the storyline being so interactive that I forgot about the collection of animals.
Hidden object scenes, puzzles, finding the items to interact with were all not mind blogging.
If you like a semi relaxing game this is it. Not frustrating.
I didn't care much for the "extra" game time for CE and didn't complete it.
I played this game over several days, so I would say it took me about 4-5 hours to complete, not including the added bonus game.

This is the first time in a longggg, longggg time that I've started a game and finished it in the same session. Once I started this, I simply could not stop. The storyline was great at first, got a little weird near the ending but overall was really good. The bonus chapter is not needed for a satisfactory ending of this game but it does show what happens after the fact and how you save the town. It took me about an hour. The entire game took me 5 hours and it was so incredibly fun and interactive.
The mini games/puzzles were quite easy but it didn't faze me because the overall feeling of this game especially the amazing voiceovers and soundtrack really give this game a WOW factor that I have not experienced for quite sometime. The hidden object scenes were interactive. Elephant games has collectibles in this one. 10 pets to find and they go into the bonus chapter as well. I found all of them.
This game surprised me because it had no journal and no achievements and I found myself really enjoying that as I never use the journal anyways AND it was nice to play a game without popups coming up all the time for "getting 3 objects in 3 seconds" etc etc. The bonus section features the pets you find, the cursed cards, wallpaper, soundtrack, PUZZLES! which were so fun. 9 of them, a bonus chapter and another mini game which was really just playing music on the organ grinder itself.
For once, I never got bored, never lost interest. Since I kept on going, I never got lost. You can change your difficulty level in the options menu. The map is very useful and is a jumper which is nice because there are a lot of locations you need to go back to. I just had an overall feeling of happiness playing this game although the story isn't really all that happy until the end. Its all about revenge and how love can make you into a better person. After all....an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
I definitely recommend this game. I found it creative, fun, genius, a great storyline that is different from most!, lots of interactive areas, lots of tasks to do and the bonus chapter is very good too not just a bunch of hidden object scenes thrown together like some! well thought out! A definite game of the year contender!!!

Six Stars out of Five
I seldom review games, especially some time after they come out, but I just finished this one for the second time and I have to say it is pitch perfect. It is the only game that I have ever played that I kept the music on because I wanted to hear it specifically and the organ grinder singing 'The Raven' at the beginning just blew my mind. I love the music. I love the voices, particularly the organ grinder. I love the story. This is one of two games that I have rated six stars out of a usually five. A game not just to be played but to be viewed and listened to and enjoyed.

STOP THE ORGAN GRINDER!
This game was great in all aspects. The graphics, sound quality, and storyline were so interesting that I was hooked! This is another one of Elephant Games masterpieces! You need to stop the organ grinder from taking revenge. I was really excited right up until the end of the game. I bought the CE edition and although I don't use the strategy guide I did use it a couple of times on this one but really enjoyed myself. All I have to say is buy it and see for yourself what a great game this is!

Wow! This game is fun!
Just finished the CE bonus play, and I had to write a review (this is my first review on Big Fish). I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. It seemed to have just about everything.
My background: I play games to relax, but I don't have a lot of time, so I usually play on casual (even though I've been playing long enough to "upgrade") and don't mind if a game is on the short side. What I like is beautiful graphics and a great fantasy story, and this supplies that in abundance. Plus, Chimeras: Tune of Revenge has something extra that is hard to explain, but this game is just fun.
For the CE: There's an interactive map, a strategy guide (of course) and a cute pet to carry along. There are 10 collectible "lost pets" and the extra gameplay includes 9 jigsaw puzzles of the game's beasties.
The bonus play took me 1.5 hours (I took my time), and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I usually think the bonus gameplay is just something tacked on the end, but I really liked this bonus.

Can't Say Enough! FANTASIC!
This is probably my absolute favorite HOP game I have ever had the pleasure of playing.
Storyline: REFRESHING! I can't tell you how many games I have been excited to play just to find out it's the same scenario....Basic D.I.D.'s or Who Killed Him/Her, or Where in the World is Carme...Never mind. You get the point. The HOP industry is getting a bit stale and this is exactly what we needed. The storyline is extremely entertaining, and is more than just who done it and why.
Graphics: EXCELLENT. What more can I say? The color scheme is wonderful as well as the voice acting.
Overall...AMAZING GAME! What are you waiting for? PLAY IT. No really...Play it now.

Another great game!!
Another great hidden object game!! It great from the intro all the way to the end. If you like great graphics and a storyline you can follow - then you have got to try this one.

I couldn't leave this game alone until I finished it! It was exciting. And it wasn't so hard. Unlike some people, I don't like hard games.
It was colorful and very interesting.
