Phenomenon: Outcome Collector's Edition
MORE OF THE SAME
Played a few minutes of this "more of the same" game over the shoulder of another player. Glad I did not buy. The HO scenes are actually boring. What has happened to our games?

Kind of a disappointment
I've played the other Phenomenon games and love them, but this one was definitely a disappointment. The story idea was good, but didn't really keep me interested, I didn't feel like part of the game!
Everything was just OK.

Poor graphics make this game unplayable
The HOS in this game have such poor graphics that it is unplayable. I could not see the items even after getting a hint and had to click blindly. I don't mind a good challenge, but small items with extremely low contrast and fuzzy images do not make a good HOS. I trashed the trial version and am done with this series. A shame because previous games were fun and interesting.

The game ran fine on my PC, no problems. Voice overs are decent, music did not quite fit the game play. This is basically the same game I have played before. There is nothing really new and the story line was feeble. I am sorry Devs but I really think it is, the story did not flow well and was disjointed. I was bored half way through but decided to push myself and finish it because I bought it. I am getting very leery of the multiple 5 Star reviews off the bat, you play and fine out you were duped as it is more of a 3 star game. I can at least end this on an up note, the game was not too tweeny and you don't have some silly baby animal helper.

Not my Favorite
The length of the game is great. I found the music annoying didn't capture the moments and the graphics were not to my liking at all. maybe cause I am not such a Si Fi person.

i have just finished playing three of the best CE's BigFish has produced in a while namely Cadenza, Off the Record, the Italian Affair and most recently New York Mysteries. I thoroughly enjoyed each one and could recommend any or all to anyone. Then this one comes out with reviewers immediately giving it five stars as if its even in the same league as those above. It was poorly produced, the graphics were dreadful and the story was without any originality. I was completely unimpressed and uninstalled after playing for a short while. I cannot see the point of giving every game that comes out five stars just to be the first reviewer off the rank.

Overdosed on double hidden object screens
Everyone has a preference in a game, for me it was Cadenza that makes hidden objects fun. No long lists, keeps it interesting, interaction, short list. If you like double the hidden object screens this game is for you. If you prefer more adventure with unique hidden objects like me you may want to pass this by. I love riddle hidden object, with much interaction. I find too many hidden objects break up storyline for me. Try it you might like it, but I hated it and won't be buying. I love mini games with storytelling the best. Sorry this game just isn't my idea of fun.

For This Quest----Count Me OUT!
Based on Demo: Where do I begin reviewing another horrendous mediocre game??
Graphics: nothing stunning, just the same flat uninspired artwork.
Characters: usual unrealistic looking with eyebrows that bounce up & down like they have a facial tic. If truth be told, I found the "dancing" eyebrows the best part of the game!!!!
HOS: There are now 2 of the usual messy junk piles to tackle each time. They were not challenging & minimally interactive.
Mini-Games: I only found one. You had to move a bug but the instructions were nonexistent unless you went too the SG. There were S O many moves to solve it that my eyes glazed over & the first move I made was to the skip button.
NOT a complex game/story, just slow moving & plods along with way too much back & forth. Five minutes into the game I was praying for it too, mercifully, end soon!
If you are looking for something new/surprising to excite your game playing, sorry this isn't it.
