Otherworld: Omens of Summer Collector's Edition
This is based on completion of the full game. I will not repeat what others have said, but mainly want to comment on the "mature" player issue. I believe this was given because it has fairies, which are usually cute and harmless. The Shade is a "fey creature" who is a nasty character and makes the world dark. No one dies. No one is transformed into a monster. It is no worse than the original game, "Spring of Shadows." However, I can see a young child seeing a cute fairy and thinking this is a typical fairy tale with Barbie and Rainbow Ponies. It isn't. But it isn't going to send anyone to bed with nightmares either.

I loved the first game! This game has great graphics and very clear but the story line is getting a bit wore out! You find yourself hitting the hint button more than usual because you are zipping back and forth! A sequel to the first, but definitely not an equal.

very good sequel
I rarely buy CE's, but I had 2 credits that had been burning a hole in my pocket. I loved the 1st Otherworld so much, that I bought this one without trying the demo, and I wasn't disappointed.
The story is very engaging. And I love achievements. The graphics were lovely. The HOP were very spaced out and not overwhelming at all.
My only complaint and the reason I couldn't give it 5 stars was the puzzles were far too easy. I rarely even had to look at the directions to figure them out.
But other than that, this game was a perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon.
On expert mode, playing at a casual pace, the core game took me 4 hours and the bonus took me 1 hour. If you buy the SE you will be left out of the ending (which leaves it open for the next game).

Great Game But Very Easy
I played this game in Hardcore mode and finished it in 3 hours and 45 minutes. The storyline flows very well but the challenges and puzzles are extremely easy. Even if you're a beginner, I would recommend playing in Hardcore mode.

Unique and varied
This game was fun because it included some games that were unique and varied; not the typical fallback puzzles and such. The graphics were colorful and interesting and the storyline was good.

Awesome game... loved everything, accept the downloading part, wich took me 4 hours. But the minigames were too good. Finally a new angle on minigames. If the downloading and installation were flawless too, the game would had given a 5 star by me!

Just don't get the hype
I read the reveiws when the game first came around, sounded good to me. Played the demo and thought it seems like a nice game. beautiful graphics and music. Well, after buying and playing a bit more, the story became so ridiculus it took alot away from the game as a whole. This is the first time I have found this in a game. Graphics were the only thing that kept me playing. I found by nearly the end I couldn't wait to finish.(gotta finish cuase I paid for the game) . Well No playing bonus content it probably would just be more annoying story line. Uninstalled without even going to the bonus. Just not for me.

Was there a story line to this game? And why is there a warning? There should be a warning for it to be suited to only those under 14.

I wanted to like this game......
graphics were clear and bright, nice details to scenes........but overall the challenges and games were tedious and a bit boring. granted I only played the free Hours worth..but was not intrigued to pay for the full version. This game does have potential if the story line were tweaked a bit to provide a bit more mystery and "pull" to discover.
