PuppetShow: Souls of the Innocent Collector's Edition
A definite thumbs up!
Graphics are incredible! No blur or excessive darkness and beautifully done.
Story line is logical and interesting.
Music not intrusive.
HOGs are clear and memory retentive. If you come back a second time the articles from the first search are still gone.
Hints are endless and refill fairly normal.
Skip button for mini-games.
Many different mini games. No repeats that I remember.
Guide is game accessable. No having to go back to menu. I did not use the guide so not sure how clear instructions are.
Worth the money to me. This game is very well done.
About 4 hours in length for the game (though I was up from my desk a few times), and about 40 minutes for the extra game play.
Extra story line sets up for next game in series....YAY!
I must say I did find this one much easier than the first but still entertaining.
The spider robot is back......and still kinda creepy in IMO.
On the whole I'd give this a high rating!

If you liked the 1st game, yes; otherwise no
I didn't care for the game, but that is not to say it's a really a bad game. The graphics are gorgeous and detailed, the puzzles are challenging without being impossible, and the background music is haunting and beautiful. My complaint revolves around the main villain, whom I find shallow and cliched. Unfortunately, the villain is also the center of the plot - not the setting, not the mystery you set out to solve, and not even the mystery of the villain itself. This is not a mystery game, this is a solve-the-puzzles-and-stop-the-villain game. It also left several mysteries completely untouched, which really disappointed me. That being said, if you like the first game, you might enjoy this one as an installment in the series. Again, it is not a bad game. I just feel it could have been so much better than it was.

This game gets my vote
Puppet Show Souls of innocence is an intriguing, fascinating and exciting game with very good graphics,magnificent scenes and a perplexing storyline.There is just enough dialogue to keep you abreast of the game and the music is some what creepy in places to make a great atmosphere.This is a typical Collectors edition game As we have grown to expect with C.E. games lots of bactracking to re visit scenes to find out why everybody is asleep.The built in Strategy Guide is not really needed in the first couple of chapters but as the game progresses it is an essential element to let you know how far back or forward you need to go to continue through the game and not try to stumble on 'blindfolded' as it were. The puzzles and mini games are very good, some take some nutting out, others are reasonable but all can be skipped if need be. The hidden Objects are clear and precise, some are small and challenging and take a bit of time to spot and the hint button is not really needed as all can be spotted eventually.
In summary a very good and interesting game, well worth the money and a great addition for any collection.

Loved it, but too short!
Absolute Gem of a game and just as creepy and dark as the first in the series, brilliant crisp clear graphics, fantastic storyline and some really creepy art! Loved the finger lock! My only gripe about this game is it's far too short! I completed it in less than an hour and half and couldn't believe it was the end...really looking forward to playing the 3rd instalment right away. Brilliant fun :-)

get them all
The puppet show games are all worth buying. They are fun and not that hard to play. Good HOS and puzzles. Hint button works good if needed. Has good flow. Great adventure game.

Excellent! They done it again!!!
Love the Puppetshow series... Bring more of them on... Unfortunately, I did this one after the newer ones as I didn't know it existed, but saying that, it made no difference to my thoughts on this game...

Nice game :)
I tried this game after playing the next Puppet Show, so this one was a little disappointing. No voice overs, a little slow on my pc and every time you quit, it shows the preview of the rest of the game which is kind of annoying. But overall it has a good storyline and the grafics and soundtrack are very good ;)

Aaaah, they made another one!
Well, of course I had to get the sequel to my favorite HOG!
The sequel was great and I liked how it really opened up the locations and had so many completely different scenes and places. Introducing it in Collector's Edition was the best! I love the extra level and all those graphics and music; but I'm also a huge dork.
Again, I really can't say enough about the stunning artwork in these games and the detail in the HOS. I found the puzzles a little easier in this one but finding and figuring out how objects worked harder, so an even trade.
I just love these games!
