House of 1000 Doors: Serpent Flame Collector's Edition
Lovely but not a challenge.....
Great graphics, nice voice overs, lovely music and well done HOGs....but the puzzles are VERY easy. If you are looking for a relaxing game this is for you but if you want more you may find it very boring. I thought the puzzles were more suited for children.

why a collectors edition? wheres the standard version?
I was very disappointed with this game, i finished it in just a few hours, so, its not a very long game, even with the supposed bonus chapter. I would have preferred to have the normal version, and not pay for a collectors edition, but, sadly, it looks like supposed collectors editions are phasing that out. I think this game is a waste of money.. Still think the first version is the better one. Value wise. Nice graphics and quality, but, way too short. the second version collectors edition is excellent though. I have all 3 games.

There is plenty to do here and you won't get bored.
* Casual and Expert modes;
* Interactive map;
* Find 40 morphing objects; and
* Can replay mini-games and puzzles.
The story line is very good and easy to follow.
The graphics are superb. Everything is crystal clear and quite beautiful. Sound is very good.
The music is lovely with quite a lot of different melodies which fit in where you are playing.
The hidden objects games are interactive and very easy. Some are straightforward HOS and in others you have to put back objects. I enjoyed these.
The mini-games are very easy and don't take more than a couple of minutes to do.
The morphing objects do actually morph and are easy to find. I found all 40 without any problem. As you are looking around a 'hand' will come over them anyway so you can grab it. However, I just made sure that when I entered each scene that I looked for it first, so I didn't accidently forget about it and move on.
The game and bonus are very long. I think it took me about 7 hours all up to do.
So overall a good game. Sadly its not very challenging. I wished there had been a Custom mode which we could turn turn everything off and make it REALLY HARD. Some games do this and I've been spoiled and want it in every game.
Definitely recommend - especially for beginners and maybe intermediates.

I was thrilled when this came out and I don't even think I played the demo before buying the CE. The other 1000 Doors have been so good and followed their same theme, but this one went in a different direction. Didn't even have doors that when you tried to open them, they disappeared. This probably would have been an OK game if it wasn't in a series, but I feel they ruined it. I did finish it but got lazy and bored and used lots of hints. Very, very disappointed. I hope they never do this again and keep in the storyline of the previous awesome 1000 Doors.

nasty big snakes
Large snakes in a game? The topic has spoiled the game for me. The game itself is well done. Beautiful graphics, appropriate music, nice movies. But nasty snakes?

Can't finish it!!!!
The story line is fine and the new style of hidden object games (putting things back) is great. I enjoyed the mini games although they're not particularly challenging. Graphics are good, but the voice acting is absolutely dreadful, especially the boy.
However, I missed getting an item which I need to finish the game, due to a small oversight. I can't go back and get it because the portal is now closed and there is no way to open it back up. So irritating that I can't complete this after getting almost to the end. I feel like I've completely wasted my time. Please don't make areas inaccesible until all tasks have been completed!
