New York Mysteries: The Lantern of Souls Collector's Edition is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly worthy of CE price I played this game in advanced mode and found it had the right balance of being easy enough to intuit most actions to develop the plot with some mini game challenges along the way. There are tons of objects to collect throughout the scenes--morphing, souvenir cards about NYC landmarks, plaques, musical treble clefs, etc. Number of HOS piles was average to low, but many chapters to play. The bonus chapter was decently long. The storyline and mystery is decently plausible. It takes place during 1940s US and the main character Laura James looks like Scarlett Johansson. The map feature is nice and allows you to see locations with more tasks and transports you instantaneously. All in all, this is a great value for the money. It took me several nights to play the game with bonus chapter. Probably could play again and try to find all the morphing objects and collectibles.I liked it enough to research about the other titles in the series. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Much Bang for Your Buck!!! I generally don't leave reviews, but I really had to give high kudos to this game. An Adventure Game that's high on the fun and intrigue factor and low on the bugs, ghouls and death. Well, to be fair there are some zombies, but they're well in the background and not so in your face as I find in other games. The main focus is on finding the clues, solving the crime, figuring out the puzzle and all with HOs that are very diverting and much more like mini games than the usual click'n'finds which are beginning to bore me to tears. I was astonished at how many locations are presented, the quality of the graphics and the sheer escape factor. It's a great game! I know you'll enjoy it and all for half the price of some other great games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He must finish what his daddy started!! Yep, poor Richard Hardstein and his whole, new army will attempt to..."Forge the world in fire and create a new, ideal order!" Enter: Laura and her side-kick helper to the rescue! Of course, we mustn't leave out Mr. Bishop, and oh, no, not those tunnels again! I just completed the entire CE version and must say, I really dug this game and the storyline. I think this is my favorite of the series. There is one quick scene where I almost jumped out of my seat but there is nothing really spooky about the game--again, it's all about this madman and world domination, and his army of zombies, who will never need to eat or sleep, nor will they ever grow tired! Will wonders ever cease? Usually in many of the CE games I’ve played, I would either miss some of the morphing objects and get all the other collectibles or vice versa. In this case, I was able to obtain all of the collectibles in the Main Game, and not because it was easy but because I remembered to and took the time to search, plus the map was a great signifier for that. The flow was much better in this game compared to the others. And speaking of collectibles, there are quite a few: 9 apples; 9 shields; 9 treble clefs; 8 statuettes; 16 collectible cards and 35 morphing objects. Again, bear in mind, there are no left-over collectibles for the Bonus Game. The map was fantastic; the voiceovers were very good; there wasn’t as much music as in other games but it’s possible I was so engrossed in the game that I didn’t really notice. The graphics were wonderful as usual. The HOPS were great—interactive, silhouette items, some were tricky but attainable. The mini-games/puzzles were pretty cool. Not particularly hard but more tedious than some. I enjoyed those. Very nice balance of things to do!! My only gripe with this game and games like this is the logic behind many of the tasks. I’ll use an example from another game I played: I finally get to an apparatus that will take me to safety, but oh, wait, I can’t leave because there’s one item I need elsewhere, so whether there is a good map or not, I must go out of my way to an area way off limits to retrieve the item then trail my way back to the aforementioned apparatus to complete the task to safety. Illogical! Senseless! Another example: Why do I need a piece of shard with a rag around it, (for safety sake), to cut a piece of curtain when there is a pair of scissors in my inventory, which I could have used as well, but was intended for another task. Go figure! But it is what it is! I’m not sure there is a perfect game out there. I do think all developers need to take heed to the reviewers' comments, though. Logic and rationale are important factors for me, but it is, after all, only a game and nothing more! So for its genre, and for the mere fact that I had fun playing this game, I am giving it a low 5-star! Ironically, this game worked for me and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride! Devs, super job! You did good! I highly recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this game! I don't know what it is but I just love the New York Mysteries series. Maybe it's that I feel like I'm actually in the game everytime they say her/my name, maybe it's because I love NY so much or maybe it's do to the stellar game. I'd say it's all of these things + more. Storyline was as good if not better than the others in the series. Longer you play the more it makes sense. I loved the fact that we had that adorable young man from the lab working with us and he got to finish the game up alone in the bonus game. I would have liked to see him a little more throughout the game so you'd really feel more like you were in it together. Sorta how they did it in Beyond Light Advent. The voices sound great, the scenes were so well done without being overly done and colors were perfect, normal, & appropriate for the scenes. I have trouble with my eyes and neck and get a terrible headache/migraine with many of the newer games because there is just way way way too much packed into every darn scene, I'm craning my neck to see everything and the colors and lights kill my eyes after a while plus the colors are just so overdone almost bordering on lurid! This game had just the right amount of items in each scene to make it beautiful and/or interesting to look at, yet easy enough to figure out what you need to do or where you need to go. The game for the most part made sense and the flow was very good. Yes there were times I needed the hint or skip buttons but that's why they're there. I think if you base this game off of just the demo you are doing yourself a disservice because the game does get better and better the longer you play! Length was just right too not to long but not extra short like many of the games that have come out recently have been. There are very few times I purchase the CE instead of the Se but this was well worth the price of the CE! I'm so glad I got to play the bonus round as that handsome young man! All and all I truly had a lot of fun playing this game! Highly recommend you buy this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this Game! I'm a big fan of New York Mysteries and this CE game did not let me down. The story line was unique and kept my interest throughout the game. The bonus game was frosting on the cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He just won't die! The heroine of this series is Laura James, and you get to solve another mystery as this hard-boiled lady detective. I'm all about murder mystery HOA's, but Lantern of Souls takes the genre to another level. Thomas Martell's widow seems to be celebrating his death with champaigne, when - horrors! The corpse reappears in her house! Later the police call in Laura James to solve the mystery of the missing widow, and you're launched into a very tricky, absorbing adventure. The main part of the game is solving puzzles and putting pieces together to open drawers, doors, and toolboxes. There's a chemical compound you have to mix (always one of my favorites) as well as the usual hears, keys, and batteries. If you like a murder mystery with paranormal overtones, this is an excellent addition to your Game Manager.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Game (completed) I really loved the interactive HOS scenes which in this game replaced the old school endless lists and junk piles. Enjoyed the storyline, the cut scenes and the way the game kept me interested and involved in the story. I appreciated the labeling of items in the HOS inventory since that is often not done in other games. (most games don't label the found silhouettes and they can be so small you can't tell what they are or how they interact in the scene). On the plus side, HOS and minigames were replayable, and the missed collectibles could be located at the end of the game allowing a few extra jigsaw puzzles to be played. However (and this was a problem) there was no active hint button to help you locate them. I had to go to the strategy guide under collectibles and morphs to look at the scenes, then find them on the map, teleport and finally locate the pesky missing items. The only downside for me was getting lost frequently, not being able sometimes to remember where to go in the several locations. Items in the inventory were kept for a long time in some instances, but I much PREFER having a little challenge than having things handed to me to use in the very next scene. Besides the hint button was very helpful. Bonus game lasted about an hour or so and was decent. Minigames were on the easy side, and I wish more developers would use the megapuzzles more, but on the whole, a very good game, worth the "collector's" edition assignment, and I will probably play it again (rare for me)
