Otherworld: Shades of Fall Collector's Edition
Review of a finished game...
Colorful, as well as entertaining. From the very beginning I was hooked. I have played the Otherword games and this one does not disappoint. Fairys to collect. This one, you keep your dagger through out the game to use, instead of using it one time and the searching for another, I liked that small detail. The CE does not have screensavers. PLz dont forget to post ur fav. game so that others can chk it ou as I do... ty
game on gamers...

Loved this game! :)
Loved the otherworld series and it is only getting better with each series! Can't wait for the next series to be out!
The graphics were extremely beautiful, the characters/creatures are interesting, music is great. Storyline flows really well because sometimes I don't get the story when I'm playing.. Most of the puzzles were challenging and fun! Overall the game is fantastic and I highly recommend this game!
What I love most about this series is how you can change between worlds using the locket!

Dark but beautiful
I usually play games with my daughter, but this one I think she's probably too young for. It's very beautiful, but somehow haunting... not scary like many other games, but still not a game for kids. I loved the story, can't wait for the next episode.

Based on the demo: very nice game. good quality sound and visuals. This is my favorite of the Otherworld series.

How many times can you use the word "fay" in a game?
I really like the Otherworld games, and this is a good next chapter . Beautiful fantasy graphics as always, I really like this developer's imagination. Voiceovers and music can be turned off, always a plus for me.
HOS scenes are fun, and some games actually have a little challenge. Played on hardcore and easily finished the game. Strategy guide keeps pace, but doesn't have solutions to games, just the final solution.
Game is a very good length, well worth the CE price. Plot fits in nicely with the series, but it's hard to understand why the main character keeps having to regain the "Sight".
Collectibles are fairly obvious but beautiful.
bonus epilogue sets up the next game.
I recommend this whole series for adults who like fantasy games with a twist.

Enjoyed this CE
I really liked this game. Graphics were excellent, not too much hand holding, music was pleasant and storyline was easy to follow and not quite as silly as many are.
Loved the HOS; few of them but nicely interactive, some FROGS, some find 15 of this or that...I really dislike junkpile HOS, and this game had very few of those.
Puzzles were either quite easy, but enjoyable OR I couldn't understand the instructions so skipped. Some puzzles relied on you taking in all the characters, and their role in the game. I rarely follow stories that closely, so had to skip those.
There were collectables in each scene...and I don't know what I was collecting. Whatever they were they had wings!
Played advanced mode, no sparkles but fairly fast skip and hint refill.
I did have to use the SG, which at times opened at the scene I was in and at other times didn't. Fairly easy to follow, and I only got totally stuck in the game once. The map was mainly helpful, and you could jump to scenes with tasks to do. Hint system took you to the scene you needed too, so was mostly helpful.
We pay double for CEs, and I didn't think the bonus chapter was up to much. To start with a couple of HOS, and I thought "here we go" as there were more HOS in bonus chapter, than there were in the whole of the main game! With few exceptions, bonus chapters tend to be disappointing, and this one was too.
All in all a fun game, that took 5+ hours to finish, and I played to the end.

Better than some
Based on demo..but plan to purchase.
I have other Otherworld games and as with the others, the graphics are lovely. I don't listen to the audio so I can't comment on that part. The casual option was just that; was easy to follow and didn't get lost. However, what I did like about this particular game is the addition of a map. Makes it much easier to hop around without having to count how many walk up/down needed for the next directive. Was a bit "troll-y" for me but willing to look past it. Can't comment on if it's worth the CE price as I didn't complete the game, but for me an easy choice.

The Shade Is Back
This was a great sequel with a few flaws. The music and the artwork were beautiful. The voice-overs were well spoken and not over-acted as so many are. There are 3 modes of play with 9 chapters and an epilogue to complete. There are 60 Dragon Collectables and 22 Achievements. The HOS were interactive and a few were fragmented object scenes. The hint button and strategy guide were helpful, but I didn't really use the guide much. The map was an interactive one and would show you where you had tasks to complete. The game starts with Fiona getting turned to stone and you lose The Sight. You get it back but you occasionally lose it. So you are in the real world and the fay world back and forth. That was fun. There are dragon collectables in both worlds. Some dragons are in the epilogue too, so when you finish the game don't be alarmed that you have not collected them all. Beware if you have not collected all of the dragons when you finish the tasks for the the Troll, the Queen, and the Selkie, you cannot go back and retrace your steps...you are DONE. Also BEWARE...the last scene of the epilogue you are facing the headless woman. DO NOT talk to her before you collect your dragons or you do not get to collect them. Ask me how I know that...soooo I did not collect all of the dragons :( I did not care for some of the mini puzzles at all. Some were very difficult and some were just moving stuff around. A lot of them had instructions that were not clear enough to be able to understand what to do. The game took me about 4 and a half hours and the epilogue was about an hour. Overall it was a lot of fun and I am eagerly awaiting the final chapter.
