Otherworld: Omens of Summer
Great value for your money!
For a moment I went back to make sure I did not play the collector's game. L O N G game (in a good way) beautiful graphics and medium difficulty (played it with a tween).

I really enjoyed this game. It was different that the other hidden object games I played. This game you find objects that you need to use to progress to the next object.
The story line is really great. It's one of the few that I actually didn't skip through.
I played this game on expert level, where there are no hints. The didn't present my any challenges.
In all I really did enjoy this game.

good but not the greattest
Graphics are great. I really liked the first one but having a hard time getting into this one because it seems harder. Seems like I cannot figure out what to do next. Must be me. The puzzles do not give much directions and not many HOS. I'll keep pushing thru.

A fun game for a rainy afternoon. (based on demo)
The graphics and sounds are good. The game play is easy to follow. I liked that you did not have to watch the cut scenes if you did not want to. The hints are easy to use and the puzzles are easy to figure out. I only had to skip one of them so far.
I think if you want a HOA game that is fairly easy this one is it. I liked it because every once in a while I like a game that isn't too challenging.

More Mature Sequel
BASED ON COMPLETED GAME
Another WONDERFUL Otherworld game, Omens Of Summer brings us all the things we loved about the first game in more ?grown up? TALE, with not-quite-so-cute but unbelievably GORGEOUS CHARACTERS & LOCATIONS and MORE DIFFICULT & ORIGINAL PUZZLES.
There is still a very wide range of HO SCENES, including MORE LISTS, MULTIPLES, FRAGMENTED OBJECTS, and PAIRS, as well as a few FIND THIS PIECE OF THE PIC. All the objects are clearly visible, although some are very well hidden.
The PUZZLES & MINI-GAMES include even more ORIGINAL ones than the last game, and some very IMAGINATIVE TWISTS on older ones. So much so that the majority of the games are MUCH HARDER.
Having saved Fiona in Spring Of Shadows, we now must continue to protect her from the EVIL SHADE, a really well conceived CHARACTER. This time, we have the help of Fiona?s old school teacher, but the SHADE has now got RAVENS and MINIONS. Ms Thomas has been researching MAGICAL ARTIFACTS that will help us, and has created 3 PORTALS to where they can be LOCATED, and these are our destinations.
This game is chocker block full of amazing and beautiful characters on both sides. One CHARACTER on our side that I really loved was the SCARECROW, a staunch GUARDIAN and FRIEND.
This is quite a difficult game (at least for me) and it reduced my fun factor a little because I had to skip so many puzzles. Even still, the game took me five and a half hours to complete.
I think the CE, with its SG, ACHIEVEMENTS & COLLECTIBLES would actually be the better game, but this is wonderful.

Glad I bought it.
The game has a pretty good plot line and the map was a great help in getting from one scene to another quickly. While there were more puzzles than I would like, they weren't horribly hard so it made the whole game enjoyable This was a good game but for me, I would have preferred more ho's and fewer puzzles.

Better Than the First
I like this one better than the first Otherworld game. The visuals in both were excellent (though it's kind of amusing that this story is supposed to be set in Britain but very few of the voiceovers have British accents), but the story here was more interesting and less monotonous. There was also a map, which was a vast improvement over the first game in the series! The minigames, too, were more challenging, varied, and interesting without being too hard (though a few were still simple and one or two were frustrating, particularly the last one). The HO scenes were very easy but there weren't many of them, so it didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the game. I particularly liked that this game, unlike most HOA games, let you keep two very useful items throughout most of the game (a knife and a lantern), which makes a lot more sense than having us drop things after one use and then requiring the exact same type of object less than ten minutes later. It's not a great game, but it's a good one and definitely worth a sale price or game credit.

Otherworld: Omens of Summer
The SE version might confused people as it has a tab at top saving "Collector's Edition". This just lets you purchase that if you wish. I thought the graphics were great and there are lots and lots of puzzles. Not many hidden objects which was okay. However, the hint button was not that helpful in some areas. I did find a walkthrough when I got stuck. The map is also helpful.
