Royal Envoy 3 Collector's Edition
It's fun..., but
Number 12 is impossible. They forgot the bank. If anyone were able to finish number 12 with three stars.., let me know, and how? Because sometimes you cannot go by the instructions given to you. This is a mistake.

Another Good One!
This is what you get in this collectors edition:
Regular levels = 82
Bonus level = 32
It is basically the same as the other Royal Envoys. It seems to me that there are more dark levels in this game. In the Regular levels, you have 8 levels in smoke, 8 in fog and 8 in dark. If, like me, you do not like those "can't see what I am doing" levels, you will be glad to know you can still get to the bonus levels without getting perfect scores. As well, if you run out of time in the dark/smoke/fog levels, you can continue to play without time until you complete the level.
In the bonus levels there are no dark levels which was great as far as I am concerned.
The other bonuses for the Collector's Edition, other than a walk through you can access at each game level with numbered instructions how to complete it with 3 stars, you also get Wallpapers, Original Soundtrack (you can download to your computer) and an Intro Movie.
I think the Collector's Edition is worth it for the Walk Through alone because I cannot get through those dark levels. I hate them! But still on this one they did let me keep playing until I completed it so I could keep advancing in the game. Also 32 extra levels of game play is a pretty good deal.

Pretty much the same as RE2
This is a fun game, and I went ahead and bought it because I've enjoyed all the games in this series. However, this is basically a new set of Royal Envoy 2 levels, with not much new stuff introduced. if you're looking for something new and different, this is not it, but if you just enjoy the RE games and want some new levels, it's definitely enjoyable.

2 stars off immediately since this is a replica of the previous games.
I have the RE #1 and 2 (not Campaign for the Crown). This game is EXACTLY like the first 2. It does seem to get more difficult in the earlier levels. They claim there is a relaxed mode, however, all that means is that you can continue playing after the timer runs out instead of restarting. A true relaxed mode doesn't have a timer. There is a sort of strategy guide included, but I can't see how this is a collector's edition of any sort. I will be passing on this game as it is a replica of the first two (especially the 2nd one in particular). Also, I was taken right to the developer's site when I entered the game and the price for the game there was drastically lower. Just saying, although I don't intend to purchase it at either place. About the game itself, the graphics are clear and bright, the workers are the same, the kingdom is the same, Cedric is the same, and yes, the workers talk. Personally, if I don't like the music or sound effects of a game, I turn it down or off. So many larger problems this world is facing compared to the talking workers.

Do you call that UNTIMED?
I bought this because someone said it had an "Untimed Option" in the reviews, but it really doesn't. You are still TIMED - the only thing is that you can continue to play on after the allotted Time has ended. That is NOT an Untimed Game. That IS TIMED.
The Game was cute. I especially loved the Elephants chasing the carrots. The Game could have offered way more Buildings to construct. 3 Houses was hardly a WOW! What happened to the Tax Collectors collecting Rent? They were missing from this Game. The Bonus Game plays were nothing special, no WOW factor, just the same sceneries repeated over again.
All in all, an OK Game but I wouldn't play it again. Definitely NOT worth the full price of an Collector's Edition.

Yet another Royal Envoy
Don't get me wrong I like playing Royal Envoy and that's why I bought this game. But I'm up to 30 levels and the one and only thing that is new is that it's harder to get 3 stars on every level. You have to work faster and harder to get those three stars. Other than that, there is nothing new here. Tried the demo and almost didn't buy it, but I saw there are 114 levels in this game, so I'm not rushing through it. Some of the levels are actually stupid to be frank. I think each level should have a productivity-based goal. But I finished one recently that had a goal of 8,000 wood. Thus, didn't matter what I built or how much gold I made, it was all about the wood. One last thing- only buy this game if you love Royal Envoy. If not, you're gonna get bored.

Much of a muchness!
Royal Envoy 3 based on the trial 60 mins holds no surprises for people who have played previous Royal Envoy Games. If you are playing the "Timed" version then you really have to be quick to gain 3 stars on each level and that is the same with previous games..
Never played any Royal Envoy games? Then buy this one. I only gave this game an "Ok" fun factor because of my comments above.
Will I buy this game? Not in the Collector's Edition but if it comes out in "normal" mode then probably yes.

but seriously, why do all these types of games make it seem we're always in training/learning mode, and that's it for the game? Why can't we have a sandbox mode part at the end once we're done "learning" or in "training"? What's all the learning for anyway if you can't have a sandbox? ..just to rush through the game, to beat a clock and then it's all over? :(
This game was okay, but I can't/don't recommend this game because you get the same thing as the last version.

Such a disappointment
I have loved the RE games in the past, and have bought each one in turn. This one was a missed opportunity - not enough new or interesting developments to make the purchase worthwhile. Most of the games are reworks of RE2, with only one or two new ideas to make it fun.
I want to see more challenge, more houses not just a few, more variety, more characters, more fun, more story. this is too easy and too similar to RE2 - a huge disappointment

Not as Good as its Predecessors~
I am huge fan of the Royal Envoy series, so of course there was no doubt I would be purchasing this game. However, I was very disappointed. Graphics are excellent and the story line is okay - helping his Majesty in all his pink gloriness expand his kingdom. However, I was so busy rushing around trying to beat the clock, building then destroying, I realized I wasn't having any fun! People who are looking for a fun game and not a time management game done to the nth degree - do not play this game, I would highly recommend its predecessor - Royal Envoy Campaign for the Crown. Overall, a much better game. I felt like a chicken with its head cut off. Build 8 dovecotes, then destroy 3, but then build four more, then build a sawmill then destroy it 3 minutes later, etc. etc. Suffice it to say, I wasn't having any fun, and found myself getting aggravated way too easily. I was at the point, I didn't even care if I got 3 stars, I just wanted to be done with the level.
