Nightmares from the Deep: The Siren's Call Collector's Edition
Aww Poor Calliope
The first Nightmare of the deep was excellent, This new installment does even better taking it to the "Wow amazing!" level. This time around, The museum curator opens a box containing an artifact on arrival only to be mugged by fish-men and having it taken away. The graphics and music are excellent but for me, the sound effects make the game. The storyline is non-stop action, just the way I love it. A little later in the game, you have to free a siren named Calliope (Aww I felt so bad for her.) The hint button is very helpful, The HOS are interactive instead of just plucking junk from a pile. This is an epic adventure/HO game with all the bells and whistles. Some of it is a little scary but not quite as scary as the NOTD cursed heart. But still. where it lacks in spookiness is made up for in spades with awesome cut scenes, Great storyline, and lots of puzzles. This sequel is one that does not disappoint. I'm really looking forward to the next NOTD installment. The devs took their time with this one and it pays off. Hats off guys and girls for making a series that could be on par with the dark parables series.

Second Game as Good as the First
I played The Siren's Call after completing The Cursed Heart and was delighted that the second game was equally enjoyable. The graphics, music, and story were excellent. I admit that the story did not grab me quite as much as the first, but it was still a good tale. This is a very easy game with variations on the HOS screens and Mah Jong as an alternative. Maps are provided which minimize the backtracking to use items in previously visited locations. This is the first 'Collector's edition' game I've purchased and I remain neutral. I don't care about the 'extras' and the additional game chapter did not add much to the overall story - it is simply one more errand with a lot of collecting. I think that I would have been equally pleased if I could have purchased the Standard Edition.
Nightmares of the Deep are two games that I would highly recommend!

This game has it all. Three different collectables including one morphing, beautiful graphics, achievements, detailed storyline, a jump map and a great length. Like the first game, I loved this one. I loved the treasure chest and it's goblin guardian. I liked how he told you more of the story for gold coins. And the story was front and center the entire game. It starts out with lots of drama and suspense and for the most part maintains it well throughout. I really liked mixing the sleeping potion for the guard who should " go wench himself" . Lol nice touch. A really good mix of HO scenes, adventure play and mini games. Don't miss this one. It's well worth your time and money.

After a while HOG's become kinda boring, repetitious and predictable. This game was so exciting from the beginning and I love this series and am very impressed.

Loved this game. Followed the previous game called Nightmares from the Deep: Cursed Heart. Flow of the game was excellent. Music and sound great. The ambionce was like Reese Peanut Butter Cups, if you like chocolate and PB.

This is an excellent sequel! This game is so much fun. You are a museum director and are recruited to help save the siren. This game is a bit more serious than the first, but was so much fun to play. The graphics and cut scenes are excellent, the voice overs are well done, the HOS are great, the mini games were fun (some very unique ones, although not too difficult). The story line was so engaging. There are achievements and morphing objects to find.
While the main game was excellent and had a satisfying ending, the bonus chapter added a new dimension to the story and set up another sequel.
The SG is built in, the map allows you to jump to various areas and shows you where the "to do" items are located. The music was nice and appropriate for the game. The extras consisted of concept art, music, cut scenes and HOS to replay.
I highly recommend this game!

ENTERTAINING AND FUN
Help Sara find out what is turning the citizens of a little fishing town into sea creatures after she's attacked (does every delivery man come with weapons and fighting ability?). There's lots to do and places to explore. Quite a few lengthy cutscenes. Voice-overs are very well done and don't sound contrived, although you can turn them off.
Graphics are beautifully detailed and storyline is well conceived. Lots of achievements in the CE, like morphing parrots, hidden octopi, finding seahorses, and various achievements for playing the HOS and meeting game milestones. If you like these, the CE is probably the way to go, since there are so many of them. In addition, there are the normal CE bonus game, soundtrack and cutscenes. You'll also like the puzzles, which are not too difficult. Very good production values.
