Lost Legends: The Weeping Woman Collector's Edition
I enjoyed the game. The visuals were appealing but the storyline was way too transparent. Like knowing the ending of a book before you get to it. That was disappointing but it was not a fatal flaw.

A Festival Should Help Just About Everything Including Kidnapping
Maria and Domingo fell in love, married and had two children and lived happily ever after, the end!
Nope, that's not how this legend goes, because Domingo left Maria for a younger woman, he took the children as well, driving Maria insane, until she drowned herself, gone, gone forever. Today is October 17th and the festival begins, Flores de Los Muertos, flowers will surely warm the heart of Maria and spare the children, a child has been abducted on this very day for the past three years!
I'm not going to lie, I was not over the top excited about the quality of this game, a bit subpar in my opinion. With that being said, the game is still likeable, the graphics are okay, the game mechanics a bit clunky. This is a bit unusual for a BF exclusive. There are 25 golden skulls to find which are hidden under rocks or behind cabinet doors, just search each scene until a hand shows up and bingo, that's where the skulls are. There are also 25 morphing flowers to collect.
The Hidden Object scenes are interactive list finds and most have a small mini game within such as connecting dots to make a star or finding keys of various colors and then turning those keys one at a time in a specific order. The mini games are fairly easy, such as rearranging skeletons until they are touching each other, or placing figurines on a board according to the clues given one at a time.
This isn't a bad game, the story is fantastic to be honest, but this game seems low budget and not at all what I have come to expect in a Collector's Edition.

Really enjoyed playing this game. The scenes were interesting, pretty and colorful. The HO games were very easy and that was ok with me. The story line and bonus chapter were interesting and the game played quickly. I bought this CC game on sale so I feel it was a fair price. While the game was not fantastic, it was a solid game and fun to play.

Solve the mystery in San Cristobal, Mexico!
For many years, the children of San Cristobal slept peacefully. However, three years ago, a child went missing during the festival for real, with another child vanishing each year since! Now another child has been taken ? right before your eyes! Has the Weeping Woman truly returned to take revenge?
Another fun case for the detective (you) to solve!
The story line is a lot of fun. The visuals are wonderful as is the sound quality. I truly enjoy long playing games and this is one of them. The HOS and Mini-games are great, getting around with the map is helpful, as well as the bonus game.
I give this game a 9/10. Great game. Highly recommend it!

Children with accents? Really? Apart from that it had lovely brilliant bright colors. The Graphics were OK. The Story line wasn't too bad either. Surprise endings were Good. Something to play on a Rainy day! I would NEVER pay full price for this, but wait until you get two for one Sales deals.

WAIT FOR THE SE
For a CE this was appalling. The story was pretty stupid, very easy HOS and the entire game (including the Bonus) was too short. Though, for me, that was a bonus in itself.
As for the Bonus Game....oh man....that was REALLY short and such an unbelievably pathetic, unimaginative story!
My advice.....WAIT FOR THE SE!! This is NOT worth the cost of a CE....in no way, shape or form!!
So, I DO recommend this game but NOT as a CE, only in the SE.

All over the map
Game locations seemed to be all over the place and it was easy to get lost as to where the next activity was to take place and location map was interactive, but did not offer areas within that location. I did like the story and that's about the only thing that was good about this one, as every other aspect was just OK. Seems as though they are putting out games as quickly as possible without taking the time to make a quality product; not too many excellent new games being offered lately. I'm on the fence with this one, but feel because of the continuous jumping around, the strategy guide is needed for this one but not sure it's worth the extra price. I'm also concerned about the game length as the demo took less than 45 minutes and seems you've gotten pretty far into the game just thru the demo.

Beware the Flores de los Mertos festival!
You are a reporter who arrives in San Cristobal to find the missing children. It seems Maria and Domingo were happily married with 2 children, when Domingo decides to leave her for another woman, and took the children as well. So Maria drowned herself in Rio Cristobal, and now steals children near the river to make up for her own lost ones.
The best thing about this game is the voice acting. The character's lips move to match what they are saying. Otherwise, it is a bit boring. The HOS are lists, and the mini-games quite easy. You ramble around the town looking for clues, using a map that doesn't actually represent all the areas in the town. Activities are marked, but you may not be able to carry out the activity at the time.
You can collect 25 golden skulls and 25 floweres, plus 14 achievements. I quit playing the demo after about 15 minutes or so, because I was using the hint button too much. It is not intuitive where to go or what to do next.
I am afraid I'll have to pass on this one.

Beware! VERY short game!!
Very easy game. But surprisingly SHORT! Not worth the money of a CE game,
