Nearwood Collector's Edition
Nearwood Next To Perfect
Finally a game that meets my must have list. Beautiful Graphics. Charming and interesting characters. Nice flow to the game.
Puzzles and HO's were very good and lots to do. Some back and forth for those who hate that.
Just about had it all.

Although I dont like "mother dies" motive, this game was quite interesting.
Played only 30 mins but I guess it's gonna be a buy. :)

If you like enchanting visuals, this is for you. Could be nice for the younger audience with help. Graphics are very creative, and beautifully done. Characters are hilarious. And those cute little fuzzy little chirpers, what can I say, right out of a fairy tale to delight young and old alike. I'm sorry I only had an hour to play. I will keep this one on ice for future purchase. The only thing that was confusing in the beginning was the intro, didn't know when to hit start button until the whole fly over stared again.

Not really Hidden Object.
Opening video stunning! Not really to my taste. No "proper" Hidden Object scenes - lots of quite easy puzzles though. the "helper" is a bit intrusive.
Recommending for graphics only.

Play the game, don't just look at the scenes
Review based on demo. Not too difficult puzzles. Beautiful graphics. Unobtrusive music. Like those little red eared cuties. All in all a fun game.

Have you watched the intro animation all the way through?
If you haven't you really should. This is the only game I know of where you can really enjoy the game before you even start the game. The animated sequence loops, but I think it's enjoyable. The game itself is fun. I'm not fond of annoying little creatures/characters, but they aren't too annoying in this game. I like the puzzles and most of the artwork. But that intro is what earned it the stars.

Beautiful graphics, fun play
I won't go into describing the whole game play as it has already been done. However, I had to comment on how visually beautiful this game is. One of the most visually stunning games I've ever played. That aspect certainly added to the enjoyment of playing this game. I found the game itself on the easy side. That being said I play on Expert or Hardcore so it won't be easy for everyone. And I would still recommend to those who play on hardcore as there are a couple of challenging puzzles. I do wish the game was a little bit longer. Also, the cute creatures in the game won't be to everyone's liking. Overall though this is a high quality, fun game that I would recommend to every level player. At least play the demo to see if you like it.

Very short. Too much cutscreen stuff. Couldn't get it going faster...just a skip option. Shouldn't be a CE - just wasn't good enough. Bonus chapter even worse. Pretty, though!

Well, I normally never read the reviews before I buy because it sways me. I did read them and I bought it. Other than finding the "cute critter" extras..I find very little "common sense" in this game. Just why would one think to put a glowing ember into some plant dangling over a well?? What "logic" is there to toss an arrow at a "huge pillar?" I get so aggravated when there is a common sense article one would use..where is the thinking process??
One the very plus side...the graphics are spell binding...enough to draw you in immediately, it is beautifully done..i just wish it were more on a common sense level. Sorry!

Better for the younger set
The artwork was the hit of the show. I don't play with music so I cannot comment there. The games were nothing new; I cannot remember a puzzle in this game that I have not played in another game.
I prefer the less dark stories but this was not one of my favorites. The characters and plot were for the young.
