Redemption Cemetery: Curse of the Raven Collector's Edition
More bang for your buck!
I am an avid HOG player and this game was probably one of the best in all areas of play. What I thought was exceptionally good with this game is that it is separated into 3 individual games, which are linked as well but you get to explore brand new locations for each one. I played the CE version and was rewarded with yet one more bonus game. The story line is easy to follow, graphics are excellent, mini games are not too hard but still challenging. I wish there were more games like this one as it took me several weeks to complete only because I played other HOG in between. I will definitely play this one again!!!

This is my favourite game, I must have played it a dozen times and still I really enjoy it. The storyline is great and I love the fact that it goes onto different areas. The graphics are good and the stories are great.

beautiful graphics but the game didn't resonate with me
It's a dark and stormy night and you crash your car next to a graveyard. dazed, you stumble into the cemetery seeking help. But the iron gates slam closed and now you are trapped in the graveyard. the ghost of a grieving father appears to you, pleading for you to save his daughter who he tried to save from a tragic housefire. since she is buried in the plot next to his, he was obviously unsuccessful in his attempt to save her.
graphics: beautifully detailed. the hidden objects scenes were well done, there is no click penalty and the hint button recharges quickly (60 seconds). but the puzzles were few and disappointingly easy. the transition between scenes is annoyingly sluggish, sometimes taking as long as 15 seconds, and that quickly became very frustrating.
music and sound effects: music was alright, nothing special, but it wasn't annoying, either. it did fit the tone of the story. the sound effects were too quiet to hear so i had to specifically adjust their volume a few times so i could hear them more easily.
storyline: um, predictable. the car crash opening scene, the graveyard setting and the ghosts/time travel scenarios have all been done before.
weather report: dark and stormy.
my interaction: one hour demo, normal mode (this game has two modes of play).
this game will likely appeal to many gamers, especially fans of hidden objects scenes and mysteries. since it has three novellas as well as extra play that is unlocked after the three novellas have been completed, i'd guess this game is also fairly long, which makes it tempting to purchase. however, i was not impressed by the sluggish scene transitions nor was i particularly impressed by the storyline, so i will not be adding this game to my collection. thus, my four star rating.

there all good
Cool game and ERS has added new ideas to this one.
Has a map and hint button works good.
Good voice over and graphics. Music is also good, not distracting.
Has a good flow with not too much going from one seen to another. Has a map which helps.
You have to find things also for the dog.
Some of the puzzles are harder than others. I did not find too many HOS but they are normal.
I have all the redemption cemetery games and they are all good, this one I think could be the best.
You have a crow that will also help you.
Again good game.

Lengthy game..keeps you interested
I loved this game... I like how creative it was and it was like a bunch of mini stories within one big plot. The only drawback was the amount of HOS. I normally expect a few throughout the game but it seemed every time I acquired a new item there was yet another hidden object puzzle to conquer. I wouldn't have minded so much except my eyes were overwhelmed with the amount of items they crammed into one scene.
Still.. the pros outweighed the one con :)
I'd definitely recommend this game for sure.

Great game overall, but needs a major fix.
The good news is: I like this game. The bad news is: I like this game...
I really enjoy playing this game; the storyline is new and unique, and I love the fact that it gives me more than one episode to play through, keeping things new. The graphics are good and the interaction keeps you on your toes.
The bad thing about me liking this game so much, is that I spend so much time doing the HOS that I feel like I"m missing out on the actual game. I mean, come on. There is an HOS every five minutes or so of playtime, and having to find mulitiples of the same item (such as "5 butterflies") on a list of 15-25 items, to me just seems rediculous. Don't get me wrong, I love a challenge, but there is really no reason to have to spend up to 20 minutes on one HO scene, finding 25 unrelated items just to get one or two "useful item" that you are going to use immediately, then move on to the next list. I spend more time on the HOS than I do on the actual game. I still really like this game, so it leaves me disappointed that all I"m doing is HOs. If the HO item lists were shorter and more suited to a Hidden object "adventure" rather than just an "I Spy" book, I might enjoy it a little more. Because now I'm at the point where whenever I get to my third or fourth HOS in one play sitting, I find myself just turning the game off, and not wanting to do antoher HOS becuase I know I'm going to waste a lot of time on it. Really disappointed by that. Great game, I'd still recommend it for a bit of fun, just really rediculous HOS!

I liked this game. The story line was good and though it took place in a cemetery, you travel to different locations to help ghosts move on - shades of Ghost Whisperer. There are two levels of play - regular and expert. The graphics are rather good, the music was nothing obnoxious which I count as good because it doesn't distract you as you are playing. It was a bit "loopy" during the HO scenes.
The HO scenes were also good. You could find everything in a reasonable amount of time. Objects weren't distorted in size or color. I thought the puzzles were easy and there were a reasonable amount of them.
There is a journal but it's help was minimal because it was mostly for noting clues in. On the regular level, the hint button refills quickly and is helpful when you get stuck as to what to do next.
I bought the collectors edition. It opened up another "chapter" which leaves me wondering how the regular game covered this challenge.
