Nightmares from the Deep: The Siren's Call Collector's Edition
When I played the first game of this series, Nightmares of the Deep: The Cursed Heart C.E. I was floored by the graphics and animation and it instantly became one of my top 5 favorite games that Big Fish Games has offered.
Now with the release of this game, The Siren's Call C.E. I knew I had to purchase this game and boy am I glad that I did. I really love the iridescent colors that are portrayed which really add an errie quality, almost like in a dreamlike state. There's really some great haunting melodies that play throughout the game and in each scene as you progress through the game that added just the right touch to put the player in the right mindset and mood, I totally dig that!
Another feature I like about this game is the ability to jump around to each scene using the map, because I'm never a fan of any game that makes you have to back track to get to certain areas to complete the game, so kudos to the designers for adding this feature.
Also, as with most of the Collector Edition games lately, there are many achievements offered, which I've always loved because I find it to be much more fun than just solving puzzles and finding various objects through each of the HOS scenes.
So if you've played the first game and enjoyed it, then you will certainly enjoy this one as well! And if you happen to be new to this series, you don't necessarly HAVE to play the first game, Nightmares of the Deep: The Cursed Heart, but I do highly suggest getting that game as well because it is just as fun as this new addition, and you'll love just how beautiful these games really are.

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!
