Fear for Sale: Nightmare Cinema Collector's Edition
First off, I will say this type of game is right up my alley. Spooky, dark, creepy. That''s all good. Hidden object scenes were ok. Interactive. Puzzles were very easy. I hate to say it, because I don't have much patience with real difficult puzzles, but they were too easy. Music was good and creepy. Visuals were dark, but that's to be expected. No misclick penalty for HOS. That is a huge plus. That penalty annoys me to no end. Map is interactive and transporting. Another plus. Now for the downside... the game was short. Yes, there were a lot of collectibles and achievements, etc. But collecting things, IMHO, doesn't equal selling a game at twice the price of a SE game. I would much rather see a high quallity game, then all the collectibles and "fluff" that the developers are putting into games lately to make them appear CE worthy. Again, just my opinion. I will gladly wait for the SE game. I don't use wallpaper, etc., not did I use the SG once.

I recommend this game to everyone who likes hidden-object games. I was surprised in a positive way because there were so many collectibles. The graphics are very nice and I enjoyed solving the various puzzles. The plot and the scenes are satisfyingly spooky and I loved the bonus chapter, too.

VERY GOOD VALUES
Interesting story and facts. Liked that the ticket taker knew it wasn't your ticket before he locked you out of the theater - added more mystery. Seems the people who have been invited to prior showings and disappeared are still around somewhere. Questions are: Where are they? What are they doing? What is their purpose to the culprits?
You get an interactive map of sorts, showing where there were outstanding tasks, which I like in casual play. There are other levels of difficulty, if you so choose. HOS had nicely spaced and detailed objects.
Graphics are slightly bland, which fits the mysterious atmosphere and time of night perfectly. Voice overs and sound effects are natural sounding. Puzzles are nicely done. Seems to be a limited number of locations. Nice that the "map" shows a picture of the location, so you can better recall where you want to be.

Great game with big mimus
I really liked this game until it came to the bonus chapter. It was the shortest bonus chapter I have ever played. 10 extra minutes of game time in my opinion was not worth the extra money I paid for it. Don't get me wrong, it was a good game and I was really into it. I just expect more out of a CE. I almost always go for the CE's because I love the extended play time, but this time I was very disappointed. Sorry!

Great Game - But A Little Short
Great Graphics, Great Sound And General Ambience ... With Nice Cut Scenes To Guide You Through; Giving Some Feel Of Being Involved In The Adventure ...
Lots Of Collectibles In Addition To The Other Realm Items ...
The Main Story Concludes Quite Well; The Extra Chapter In The CE Is A Nice Follow-On Final Conclusion ... Works Well ...
Worth A Small Premium For The Extra Chapter Of The CE ... But I Waited For The Better Deals To Own It As I Don't Think The Overall Game Length Is Worth Double The Price Of An SE Game ...

Get me more of these games !!!!
I really, really liked this game.
The story was very well put together, and even though I didn't find all the morphing objects - it's my favourite kind of extras-stuff.
Only complaint is the length - I finnished the whole game including the bonus chapter in less than 4 hours. That is way too little gameplay for a CE game - I am no expert and am always taking the time to find the items in the HOS - I only skipped one puzzle as I didn't figure out what to do.
If the next game in the series/from these devs. isn't any longer I am done getting the CE's from this developer.
But .nevertheless.... a very enjoyable game, and I know I'll replay this one.

Pros: lots of collectibles and achievements; good lenght ( 1 hour of extra game to play); possibility to choose your own level of challenge manipulating the features of the mode; possibility to switch from HOS to puzzle; full screen.
Cons: portals game architecture

THIS IS A KEEPER
This review is based on the demo. I only played for 20 mins. and decieded to purchase it. This particular addition to the Fear For Sale series is a welcome reprieve from Sunnyvale. the producers have picked up their collective socks in my opinion. The background sounds and music suit the story line and voice overs are acceptable.It seems to start out a little on the slow side as I keep wanting it to move along faster.[I have no patience]But so far so good This game is definitely not for beginners . BRAVO ZULU TO ALL INVOLVED!!!

I really liked the demo. Lots of morphing objects and things to collect. There is the option of a jigsaw puzzel instead of HOS, which I really like...HOWEVER; some of the things to collect or morph are IN some of the HOS.
I went with the jigsaw puzzel for my first HOS and ended up missing a collectable item...now I have to start over. This is a buy for me!!

Just misses 5 stars
This game was great until I got to the bonus round.
It has lovely locations, a superb map, a great hint system, terrific Hidden Object Scenes, cool storyline, interesting characters and excellent voice-overs. Lots of collectables, morphing objects (in the game and in the HOS). As a SE, this game would have been an easy 5 stars for me.
Unfortunately, I couldn't complete the Bonus chapter and neither could many others as I learned when I visited the game's forum.
I will recommend the game as an SE and as a CE if/when the Bonus chapter glitch is resolved.
