Mystery Trackers: Raincliff's Phantoms Collector's Edition is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game with an abrupt ending--must buy CE format This is a great game, but the ending is extremely abrupt. This game heavily relies on the bonus chapter to wrap things up, so do not buy the regular edition unless you mind sudden endings!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellence in Gaming!!! I have purchased over 400 Hidden Object games from BFG since 2012. I know that at times I have purchased a game, started playing it, purchased another, started playing it...forgetting about the game I had already purchased and played only briefly. I'm retracing my steps and trying to take advantage of this large library of games I own. MT: Raincliff's Phantoms is my most recent stop on the "recovery tour." AM I EVER GLAD I COMPLETELY REPLAYED THIS GAME. From start to finish MT: Raincliff's Phantoms is an excellent game. Is it the most difficult? No. Does it have all the qualities that I'd check on my "prefer to have" list? No. Is it the most entertaining? It's absolutely near the top of a short list of "elite" games. . FUN FACTOR: As with any game I've really enjoyed, I kept coming back over and over this Thanksgiving weekend to play Raincliff's Phantoms. It is definitely fun. I do not exhibit such alacrity for just any game. This one is special. VISUAL/SOUND QUALITY: What you see: Crisply drawn set designs and well-animated characters. The game is beautiful to watch/play. It's bright when necessary and darkish when appropriate. The character's aren't hastily drawn. While I won't ever confuse them for "live" actors, they look as good or better than any "cartoon" characters I've seen. I couldn't ask for more. What you hear: The background music is never dull and it is never intrusive. It doesn't steal scenes, it enhances them. There is a fair amount of dialogue between the few major characters and the voice acting is quite good. The sound effects (including, or most especially, the pitter patter of your canine assistant, little Elf's feet) are perfect. LEVEL OF CHALLENGE: Hidden Object Scenes: Not one HOS is a disappointment. The level of challenge isn't particularly high, but in each scene there are items which are VERY WELL hidden and take quite a bit of time to locate. The HOS are straightforward list finds. There is a degree of interactivity but not much. Items are well named, with none of the confusing misnomers we are familiar with in other games. Mini Puzzles: I am always attracted to puzzles more than HOS and Phantoms doesn't disappoint in either frequency or challenge. At the time of release some games may have been original. I don't recognize anything currently that is outside the norm of what we usually encounter. Most important, there isn't one "dud." Every game makes sense and is integral in moving forward with the storyline. Collectibles: There are collectible, humorous "toad" characters, like Anatoly Toadakov and Talmadge T. Toad, ESQ. These are well placed and require a little effort to find..but on the whole, these don't present much challenge for one, very large reason: when hovering over the item the game cursor changes to a hand. While the items are amusing, the hovering hand voids any challenge quotient. Morphing Items: Each location has a morphing item. The cursor changes to a hand when hovering, but there is a little delay at time. They are not immediately apparent when entering a new location. Game Playing Modes: There are two modes of play: "frost mode on" and "frost mode off." This is a stunt to add an extra level of challenge. The setting of Phantoms is the snowy, freezing cold city of Raincliff. In frost mode, the temperature gradually drops until a morphing item is identified, at which point the player is "re-warmed." If the temp goes too low, gameplay freezes. I did allow this to happen once to see what game playing ramifications ensue. Nothing, really. Inventory items are not highlightable and no activities can be completed until the morphing item is found. This is a gimmick. It doesn't get in the way of the game but it does not improve the game in any way. STORYLINE: The game is just as it's described in the "blurb." What is important is that, while "fantastical," the story still progresses logically/sequentially. If you accept the premise that there are "phantoms" or "invisibles," then everything that occurs makes sense. Some games have very loose story lines, the purpose of which is to provide an excuse to present a series of HOS and Puzzles to the player. MT: Phantoms of Raincliff has a taut storyline that guides play and provides the raison d'être. The HOS and mini-puzzles are well-integrated and help push the game forward. They don't just appear out of nowhere and for no reason. This is my strong preference in a game. This version is a Collector's Edition. It costs twice the amount of money so there needs to be a significant additional contribution in order to justify the price. In the CE, the "extras" include, the typical "who cares" collection of wallpapers, concept art and music. There is an integrated strategy guide that is more than adequate. The morphing items and collectibles are also "extra" features of the CE only. There are several achievements all having to do with either speed, completeness, or using no hints to hasten progress. Finally, there is a bonus chapter. The morphing items (and the accompanying "frost mode") and the collectibles are not challenging, as a consequence of the hovering hand cursor. If there is no challenge, there is no benefit. If there is no benefit, there is no value. As for the achievements, we know what we accomplish and no one else will ever know. They may be gratifying to acquire but...once a game is over, have you ever watched ALL the credits just to get one more achievement? If there is real value in the CE, it is found in the available strategy guide and the Bonus Chapter. In length, the bonus chapter is about one-third of the standard game. The storyline of the bonus chapter follows logically from the standard game. It is not an alternate ending, but, rather, a more complete ending. It's the same high quality as the rest of the game. Despite the collection of value-less extras, I recommend the CE on the basis of the bonus chapter and SG. CONCLUSION This game was introduced in early 2014 yet it has only a couple of the "special" features sometimes present in Mystery Trackers and Mystery Case Files games: There are no live actors; there are no "super puzzles" or "rube goldberg" puzzles; there are a number of well-crafted cut scenes driving the storyline; there is a "helper" character, Elf, an adorable little dog. Some players love live actors and others hate them. Some gamers live for the super-puzzles while they are confounding to others. Elf is an annoyance to some players but a lovable little poocher to me... What makes this game special is the overall accomplishment of its design. It is an exceptionally crafted game. There are games with many more bells and whistles but still fall flat as a whole. This game, on the other hand, is greater than the sum of its individual parts. I strongly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The phantoms strike! The sixth game in the series of Mystery Trackers by Elephant Games ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I bought this game without trying the demo because Elephant Games is my most favorite game developer, and I know they always deliver excellent games. The story begins by finding a journalist who has gone missing while investigating Raincliff. You and your loyal dog Elf are assigned to find the missing woman. The plot sounds boring but it gets better with the presence of shadow people or the Raincliff phantoms. In this game you have to collect heat source by finding morphing objects. I found out that from previous MT game (Silent Hollow), EG doesn't use live actors anymore, to my relief. I would prefer simply just characters, they are more believable. I also realized that the background music is not as annoying as their games usually are, with sudden upbeat/loud music at the end of every cutscene. This time, although still exists, it is much more bearable. While playing you will also need to collect video tapes, watch them and get photos to match a certain spot in the game to earn items. The extra contents in this game is the usual stuff, and you don't have to even play the bonus chapter, the main game itself is sufficient. But still, if you are a fan of MT, like me, you might want to add this CE to your game collection. Totally worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raincliff Redux! The Mystery Trackers series is easily one of my favorite series that Big Fish offers. Suspenseful plot without being too scary (I'm not a fan of straight-up horror games), and the narrator's self-deprecating humor KILLS me! The original Raincliff was my favorite of the series, but this one is just as awesome. I was hooked within the first scene--I wish more games were as well-crafted as the MT games!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mystery Trackers.Rainclif's Phantom.A GREAT GAME I am a fan of the Mystery Trackers of Elephant games and this one seems to be the best .It could be a 5 stars game with superb graphics, an appropriate music, a very useful Hint and with elf, the cute dog, helping you when in trouble!!Puzzles were great .Some were more difficult but with a little patience I believe you can solve them. Personally I skipped 2.This game will please every Big Fish games player. There is a challenge bonus chapter as well..Buy it .You will enjoy a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YET ANOTHER RED CARPET GAME BY THIS DEVELOPER GENERALLY: If this were a movie, the developers would certainly win an academy award or two. There are collectibles and achievements in addition to the usual CE amenities. There are four modes - casual (relaxed which is my preference), advanced, hardcore (with absolutely no help) and detective (which has less help than hardcore - but what help is left - so this must be absolutely for those who hate any type of help or guidance). GAMEPLAY: (in casual mode) Elf is back, though I don't know why he sits in the inventory tray instead of off to the side where most helpers sit. He helps in tight places. More adventures than HOS driven, with lots to see and do. Objectives are specifically given, which I like. Also, liked the ability to choose whether or not to play in freeze mode. I preferred the freeze mode and finding the morphing articles to help keep me from becoming a popsicle. HOS are typical. Puzzles are varied and not so difficult that you can't solve them (unless you're a beginner). Color palette and graphics are outstanding as all the Mystery Tracker games. Map and journal are normal. Flawless gameplay. Carefully crafted environments and nicely-told story. SUMMARY: I don't think this is my favorite Mystery Trackers, but then they all are terrific. I don't understand someone not liking them - maybe they are newbies and the game is too difficult for them. If you play a lot of HOGs, can't help but love this series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mystery Trackers: Raincliff's Phantoms CE Based on the one hour demo only: Brr. You are sent to see what happened to a reporter who has gone missing in a spooky and very wintry town called Raincliff. You can play in frost mode or not (I chose not to). This has a great storyline, invisible people that do not want you there, but you get a little dog who will help you, so do not forget about Elf. One thing about this, you get more than three levels of play, I think you get about five, ranging from casual to very, very expert. So, you can really challenge yourself (or frustrate yourself, because on the hardest level, there are no helps whatsoever!) This game does not take as long to really get going, it is easy to figure out what you need to do. As with many HO games, you will need to go back a few screens to get what you need in the screen you are currently in. There is a map you can use that will take you where you need to go directly, and that cuts down 'travel time'. When the game cut off I was at the 'Oh, darn, an hour has gone by already?' So, I will be getting this game. If it carries on as it did in the demo, it will be a great one to add to your collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Game I loved the different levels of difficulty one could choose. It really did get to be difficult. I believe the story could've been a little better written, however.
