Sacra Terra: Kiss of Death Collector's Edition
Sacra Terra: Kiss of Death CE (hidden object puzzle adventure)
Gameplay was really smooth.
Graphics very clear and bright.
Puzzles okay - nothing I haven't seen before but played in full screen and bright so made them a joy to play.
HO scenes - find by word list - interactive.
Map - yes, transportable and shows active areas.
Tasks - no.
Any hidden extras i.e. morphing - Yes.
Achievements - no.
Voiceovers - very very well done.
Inventory - doesn't lock in place.
Journal - yes.
Can't comment on hint or skip times as I don't use them.
My verdict - a buy for me.

Great Puzzle and Adventure Game
just into about an hour and a half of the game and so far am having a great time. Morphing objects! Yea!! Logical game play; great interactive map. Haven't needed the SG yet nor a hint button. Good HO scenes where items are not obvious but neither are they impossible to find. If there are achievements, I haven't earned any yet but good stuff all around. Plus a decent plot, decent graphics, just enough voice overs that I don't get bored waiting for them to tell me their life story. Definitely a replayable game.....a must for me.

Outstanding in the beginning then boring to bones
I wanted to love this game and it had a great potential. Very challenging in the beginning but down the path it turns to a complete annoyance and map travelling walk around want to be travelling. I did not bother to play the bonus chapter since I had enough with the primary game plot. This game does not feature anything new but small objects in the HOs and morphing silhouettes that are pretty much impossible to find. B- is a fair rating. Better than average but truly not ideal.

All-Round Good, Very Entertaining
I didn't play the first Sacra Terra, so I had no idea what to expect when playing this game, but I have to say, I'm impressed!
(based on demo)
Best thing would have to be the storyline. The opening is great, and the cutscenes are awesome. Have to say there was not one bit of the story I found boring.
Great graphics, especially with the bright colours. Artwork is well-done.
Voice-overs are great.
HOS are good, icnlude some extra step objects and one zoom in mini scene. The HOS were a challenge, and weren't too hard either.
The map is very useful. Allows you to jump from locations and saves a lot of time.
Hint and skip recharge fast.
I actually liked the puzzles! I can;t say that about many games, but in total there was only 1 I needed to skip.
Fair bit of backtracking.
Had to refer to the hint a lot. Did not know what to do for most of the game.
The skip took too long to recharge, and if you accidently backed out of the puzzle, you would have to start the recharge all over again.
Sacra Terra: Kiss of Death is not great, but it's not terrible either. It was nice to play for the demo, so I'd definitely recommend downloading the free trial!

I always go into playing a sequel to a personal favorite game with some abivalence. I loved Sacra Terra: Angelic Night. It & the original Phantasmat are my top two favorite games. Of course, I had no doubt that I was going to buy it once I played the first 20 minutes or so.
While the storyline is nothing new, it was well told and flowed smoothly. Everything you collect along the way makes sense, and it wasn't completely overloaded with hidden object scenes. It had a great jump map so you didn't constantly have to travel from place to place. While it certainly wasn't the most challenging game I ever played, it certainly did present a certain amount of challenge.
I have to admit to liking the first one better, but that could be because I found the seven deadly sins storyline a little bit more original than this one.
You don't have to play the original to play this one, though it does make reference to it in this game, and one of the characters does play a more substantial part in this game than in the original one.
The graphics and voiceovers were very good and clear.
I enjoyed the bonus chapter, and it was a decent length.
while I enjoyed this game very much and it was a definite buy for me, I would say play the demo and make sure it is your "cup of tea" before buying.

too dark and demonic
I really liked this game insofar as fun and easy to get around. The storyline is good and the graphics are good. It's an easy to figure out game but is still challenging. However, as with so many of these games, it is demonic, but even more so than most so if you have a problem with that, don't even play the demo because it's pretty bad. I will recommend this game, overlooking that aspect of it.

Good not Great! Still Worth the Play!
OK, So I enjoyed the first Sara Terra: Angelica Night more. This game was still a good play.
BTW that was no hedgehog in one scene. Looked more like a Javelina or a very small wild boar, just saying.
Hidden object scenes tracked with first in series.

I loved this game. The atmosphere of the game is dark and scary, just the way it should be with a succubus on the loose. The items to locate are fairly easy to find. The map is extremely easy to use and transports to where you want to go. The hint button fills fairly quickly and only used it to see what it would do. Got so involved in the game though didn't check how it worked outside hos. The strategy guide was well done. Extra great fun finding morphing objects in each scene. The hos are interactive but not difficult to figure out. The mini games I came across were fairly easy, but and fit with the game. It was a great game and will purchase after my review.

Not a CE Game!
I probably will be the most unpopular reviewer here by saying that I personally think the game is good, not great, not worth 5 stars and I for one will wait for the SE
A story that is also too familiar: Girl loses fiance, girl goes after fiance, girl battles with supernatural forces and rescues fiance. Game menu offers two play modes to choose from. Graphics are good, clean with 3D animation. Personally I found graphics slightly dated and voice-overs a tad stilted. I actually liked the music but needless to say, the game does look so very familiar which is why I only gave it three stars.
Game features a journal, a map that will transport you along with 35 morphing objects that are too easy to spot. Gameplay is your standard find objects, solve puzzles and play Hidden Object scenes. I liked the HO scenes; they were interactive and clever. Mini-games were far too easy alos very familiar. The game lacked any form of challenge.
I suppose I still year for games that have that WOW factor, like the MCF games that first came out. Games that offered you not only great storylines but game mechanics that had you glued to the computor for hours and sometimes even days. Sacra Terra , while still relatively a good good game, is is unfortuantely highly forgettable. I would rather go back and play my favorite oldies than spend double the money.
Like I said, I will propbably be very unpopular with this review, but in all honesty, I cannot just recommend a game as a CE when I have played better Standard Edition games that were well worth the time and money.
