Sea of Lies: Nemesis Collector's Edition
Another hit from this developer
Sea of Lies: Nemesis, Collector's Edition, is a great game, in my opinion. The graphics are wonderful, not too dark and very clear. Hidden object scenes are not obvious, but quite do-able. The player is, once again, a detective who must solve a murder (which becomes several murders during the course of the game). Characters' lips move when they are speaking, making the game a little more realistic. Voices are excellent. I can't comment on the music, because I turn it down, but it was not intrusive. If you don't care to play every HO scene, you can play a match three game instead. Best of all, for me, the storyline actually makes sense, and I didn't need the hint button just to figure out what should follow in every scene! This game never crashed once, for which I was grateful because of some problems I have had with another game lately. When you finish the game and bonus game, you can go back and pick up souvenirs and any treasure chests you might have missed during play. And once again, I have to tell you to watch the credits at the end, because this developer always has amusing lines there. I urge you to try this one - it's a keeper!

A CE worth buying
This game had everything! It was long, fast pace, and had unique puzzles to solve etc. After you finish the game it had many extras that surprised me.The only thing that irritated me, and I don't know if it was just me, but in the beginning the characters seem to talk slow.

had to stop, didn't know what to do
You have this fingerprint-kit and are supposed to get a fingerprint... but... first you have to find the kit and if you don't use the hint, you might never find it, as it is situated in the left corner, almost unvisible if you don't know already what it it... 2. you use the brush in order to make the fingerprints visible... but you can do that for hours without anything changing... then 3. you turn to the guide - hoping it tells you how you can stop this brush and finally get your fingerprint... ha, they don't explain it in the guide... the moment for me to stop this game. If they don't even care to give proper instructions, why should i care to buy their game? Frustrated! It might be a beautiful game, i would have loved to play it, but i don't like being left in the dark, when it comes to how to get a task done.

Loved it !!!
Love this developer. Loved this game. HOS are unique and have a great variety of things to do. Puzzles are done with great artistry and even have sound effects. The story held my interest for the entire game, which is rare. Graphics were top notch. You do get to customize mode of play. You can switch to match 3 instead of the HOS scenes. The artwork was beautiful and the music was upbeat and apropos to the story. My one complaint would be that the game could have been a little more difficult. Other than that, I recommend this game without reservation.

I LOVE THIS GAME
BEATYFULL SCENES and many diffrent mini games. The Story is Very Good... I Wish the game was longer.
I just have one thing i would have wished was in the game.
A book i could turn back to to read The Story Progress.
Hope there will be more games like this one...

The Bar Just Got Raised A Little Higher
This game certainly sets the bar a little higher for expectations of a Collectors Edition! First of all there are several modes of difficulty including a customizable setting. There are a ton of extras too, the making of, pictures, movies, music, a souvenir room (you can buy souvenirs with the booty you find) chest room (where you store your plundered chests full of booty) chest hunt (you have to find them all first) match 3, HO, puzzles. a bonus game and of course a built in strategy guide.
You are sent to an investigation in a cloak and dagger manner because a murder in town doesn't help those of political importance, so for now this death is on the down low. The victim is Rafael Ramirez and as you investigate you will learn that Rafael believed the ghost of Nemesis was after him, all that is clear is that someone was after some artifacts but who and why?
There are achievements to earn, such as using the map to jump quickly to another location, and there are 40 hidden chests full of booty to plunder and buy souvenirs with. You also have a fingerprint kit that will allow you to investigate certain areas a little more in depth. The Hidden Object Scenes are a variety of every different type available, interactive list finds, picture finds, silhouetted shapes, progressive silhouetted shapes where you use the items you find back into the scene to find other items, and even finding multiples such as 3 spoons and 3 forks. If you don't enjoy any of those you can opt for a game of match 3. The mini games are twists on older versions such as connecting pipes with stretchable tubes that have different shapes on them so they can only be used in specific places.
I must admit that I was disappointed that this game didn't have that nautical theme that was such a delight in the previous investigation, but this is still a very entertaining game. The developers have obviously spent a lot of time on this game, the graphics are well done, there are plenty of active areas in each scene and it has a nice mixture of HOS and mini games, enjoy!

Shame about the bonus game storyline !
I was delighted when I was able to buy the collectors edition with a coupon that I had been given. I love the graphics and gameplay and thought that the story line at first wasn't too bad as so many of the games these days are to do with the 'supernatural' which I really don't like. So imagine my dismay when towards the end of the game I had to enter the fortune tellers hut, yuk :-( Then imagine my even greater dismay when I went onto play the bonus content and had to deal with the fortune teller and her mate :-( As much as I loved this game if I had known about this 'super natural' content I wouldn't have purchased it. I would have found a game that hopefully didn't have this sort of content. Sadly, for me most of the games in the last few years have way too much supernatural content for me thus making it quite difficult to buy a game. So if you are happy with the supernatural then I would recommend this game, but if you are not, then don't buy it.
