Hidden Expedition: The Crown of Solomon Collector's Edition
I had time to do the ironing!!
Storyline, nothing special. Puzzles easy. The 'morphing' between scenes was exhausting - total blackout most of the time that made me think the game had frozen - very frustrating. So I didn't get far in the 90 minutes trial period. I won't be buying this collector's edition.

wait for the SE
I hope someone will let us know if the CE is worth it for the bonus game and other parts. That said, it is a good game, but way too easy and simple. Yes I enjoyed fumbling for the umbrella to get the parachute, but I would have liked that to be an aiming game with consequences...
There was a certain amount of confusion in finding things that would do the trick to solve some part that had to be retrieved but were not what the DEVs had in mind so one had to wait and come back later...but there was no logic to not being able to get that thing nor to be able to get the next thing among a variety of things to do.
I liked the use of technology to guide us on our quest to find the infiltrator and so on. I liked that the setting was modern but neither dark nor ugly...no garbage and moldy stuff. Although the HObj scenes were very easy, there was some fun and variety in the layers of activity they provided. There were words and pictures and some interactive things as well.
I think I'll buy it, but really want to compare with the SE when it comes out.

not my favorite
seemed short for a ce game. it was ok but nothing special. I usually try to buy the regular games because it seems to me when you pay for the ce all you get is a lot of hidden objects to find in the extra play and that is the least favorite part of these adventure games to me

Could not get into it !
I really did not get into it, I kept playing as if it was a chore, so I tossed it ! Thank god I bought it on sale ! It was boring, the other
hidden expeditions games were more captivating, I don't know I felt a certain arrogance in the main character that I did not like....It certainly was not suspenful or creepy, so I did not care......

Same old, Same old
I found this pretty boring, especially with plot because it's all been done before. HO are waaay too easy

I was unfortunately disappointed. The game, for me, was very predictable and the graphics, imo, were not the finest. The murky blue water scene was frustrating & I found myself hitting the hint button just to get through the scene. Perhaps my expectations were too high.

What a Yawner!
I don't know where to start on why I so disliked this new game in the Hidden Expedition series, but to say I found nothing good or fun with this one. I guess my last real favorite in the series was Amazon, that is not what games are today, but I still play it from time to time. I won't go into all that was bad, as the list would be way too long. I will not get the CE, nor the SE, but will pass on both.

Not a good one !!!!
I got bored with it. The treating of HO'S was not for me. I like to see great ones. They did not excite me at all. Some boy did I strain my eyes. It's a shame it could have been so much better.

I finished this entire game, including the bonus game, in two hours. This is not worth the money! Minigames are easy, collectibles are okay, story is meh, but above all the developers seem to be mocking us with these short games. I would never have bought it if I'd have known.

Are ALL THE CHARACTERS in Hidden Expedition series KINS?
Hi fishies. Did you notice the resemblance between the faces of "all" the characters in this series, as if all they are members of the same big family? I wonder if the painter is drawing only his own face for every character with a mirror in his hand, lol. Do these stereo-type faces suggest some indifference on the part of the devs ?
I also declare that I'm not and in the future will not be buying games with "supergirl" heroines who turn the games into comics. If the main character must be a lady then please let her be a normal lady. Otherwise she looks ridiculous and ruins the game, at least IMHO.
In short, I skip this game.
