Nearwood Collector's Edition
Such a wonderfully artistic game
The art style, the details, the landscape! They were all simply breathtaking!
I absolutely recommend this game to anyone who values the visual quality of the games! I loved doing the challenges as well! Almost everything was perfect! I'm definitely going to be looking for other games by this team!

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.

WORTH THE BUY...GREAT GAME
Nearwood CE Review
The game is quite fun and I really got into it. It was quite a long game, I did not time myself but I know it was at least 6 hours or more of game play plus an extra 40 minutes to hour on the bonus part and I usually finish games fairly fast. I did have to use my hint button a few times which I don?t normally have to do.
Perks of the game?
-the game is very long
-the hint button recharges quite quickly
-the music was good and set the game
-voiceovers were well done
-graphics were beautiful and very nicely done
-there were not a lot or to many HO scenes
-there is a map that allows you to travel and shows you were things of interest are
-finding the little creatures was fun however I found over 100 and still did not find all of them :(
-the puzzles were not too difficult but fun and challenging
-the story line was good and very enjoyable with a great and happy ending thanks to the bonus chapter :)
There are a few cons but they don?t measure up to the pros of the game?
-it was hard to find all the creatures in some areas
-there is a lot of back and forth between scenes and at time for getting were you were or were to go next
-even though there is a map it only lets you travel 2 or 3 times and then it has to recharge before traveling any more
-the bonus features, besides the bonus game play, I found to be kind of lame
So that?s about it I hope this helps ya all
Have fun and enjoy:)

good game. Little short and not much HOS
Pretty good game. Needs to be longer for a CE. No real HOS if you are used to finding what is listed under the HOS. The HOS that are there are good and interactive. Puzzles are good but not really new. Have little critters to find. Story is good and graphics are also good. I think you should wait and get the SE when it comes out.

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.

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.
