Nevertales: Shattered Image Collector's Edition
I expected so much more because I loved the last Nevertales but this was awful. I was really not feeling the demonic/witchcraft element. The storyline is very dark and just plain disturbing. This game was creepy and not in an entertaining way. I cut it off after ten minutes.
It's got all the bells and whistles but the storyline kill its.

I didn't like this game at all. It confused me, I got irritated and finally quit. I think it could have been quite good, but it just didn't flow for me.

The only shattered image here is that of the developers!
*Based on completed game
While the storyline is more intriguing this time around, I still was not impressed.
It did not appear to have the same 'bugs' that the first installment had (and still has). But I have the same complaint. The 'puzzle pieces' to collect are too easy. The morphs are more accurate in terms of their difficulty. But I, again, had to skip over a few puzzles.
While the instructions are okay, the strategy guide is often useless. It only gives you the solution - not how to solve it, which means you'll have to skip the puzzle anyways.
I like a challenge and I CANNOT stand when a game is too easy, but I cannot stand it when it's so frustrating it makes you just give up on the game. I don't play games so I can skip over seemingly impossible puzzles. I like a challenge and I like completion.
The only positive I can give this installment in the Nevertales series is the storyline.
If you are a follower of the Nevertales series and really want to follow the storyline, I highly suggest going with the SE - only get it with a coupon or on sale.

Most Boring Game I've Ever Played.
I look forward every day to playing the "Tomorrow's Game Today". So I began the demo -- OMG this is such a slow moving game, I couldn't even finish it.
The main character, Alice, is a 12-year old girl who looks more like she's in her 20s, has magical powers letting her move in and out of mirrors into other worlds. Why her parents didn't smash every mirror within a hundred miles is beyond me. Anyway she ended up in a coma and then vanished into a mirror. Her parents also have some special talents, of which I can't even remember although I played the game this morning. As if that weren't enough, there's also been an earthquake which has left lots of things in shambles. The mother ends up "transporting" to a tropical island where she meets up with a witch doctor (or the like) named Maria, a character we've seen in past games in this series, and that's where I ended my demo.
Please play the demo to get a good taste of how this game will interest you and read some reviews. For me this game is just too boring and I won't recommend it.

Give me a Break
I had to stop playing the trial after about 10 minutes because every single scene is so dark that I can barely see it unless I want to stand up at my PC.
I really don't think having everything so dark that you can't see it lends a single thing to the 'scariness' or 'mystery' -
If you want real people to play the game you need to make it at least a little 'user friendly'.
That issue over shadowed any other concept or function of this game -
