Strange Investigations: Becoming Collector's Edition is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strange New Game I really enjoyed playing this game once I got into it. It is a little different than some, and a lot like others but still interesting and gave me some excellent playing time. I'm looking forward to more just like this, and I'm hoping that it won't be long.Good game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strange Investigations Becoming Collector's Edition This is a marvelous game and unique in it's approach. I would love to see more games created in this fashion. Not your typical murder mystery, this one keeps you wanting to know who did what as the characters change. No boredom and plenty of fun for all. Try it, and see for yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strange Case - Awesome First Entry Best-written mystery game I've enjoyed in a long time, although it has a disturbing beginning and a brilliant but somewhat ambiguous end. This one is definetely not for the kids - the premise of this story is very, very dark indeed. Our heroine is a grieving, wounded young woman who questions her own sanity, and with reason. What is she seeing? Is it real? No magic here, no amulets, just a gritty cinema noir treatment of a stubborn detective and her cinema noir case. Pros: Mystery readers will love this one. Plenty of play, plot twists, red herrings, false trails, and a narrator who questions her own reliability. Great graphics, nice mix of puzzles and various flavor HO scenes, but the story's the thing. Cons: The time sequence is a little difficult to track at the beginning of the game. Dana is attempting to recall her original tragedy, what she thought was a resolution, and her subsequent history up to the present, all at once. It does make sense but leaves the player a little uncertain where he or she is entering the sequence. No spoiler, but it's 1966 and Dana has a lot of pain behind her, and some challenges ahead. Bonus game: Some bittersweet back story here along with the play. Mr. Freeman's grocery store seems to have attracted a haunt, and he asks for Dana's help. Dana has a fan. It's rather sweet, really, but there are echoes of darkness that won't go away. Great atmosphere throughout. Mini-game difficulty kicks up a level here, beware! Overall, a terrific and very adult game, and a very strong entry into what I hope is a new series. Can the Devs keep this level of excellence up? We shall see. If I could give this one six stars, I would, but I certainly will give it a whole-hearted recommendation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite Loved it from the beginning, Just played a partial of the trial and I knew; this is for me. Loved the story line , the puzzles and of course the art work. I have to say that the casual mode is very easy , this makes it a perfect game for beginners. The more advanced players need to set it to a more challenging level. However I had fun playing it and I hope we will see more of Strange Investigations

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish all games where this good. I loved this one. Lots of reviews already so I won't go into detail. But I do feel compelled to say that this game is one of the most engaging games I have played in a while. The story is interesting and the gameplay is diverse and very well done. Even the puzzles are more creative than I have seen in a while. So give this game a try. I bet you will enjoy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoying the new series I played the full version, I am not sure why it has only 3 stars, when I do not like a game I am not shy to say so but this game I truly enjoyed the storyline. I love a good detective story and this one did not disappoint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best game in a while I can’t get enough of creepy murder mystery games, I think that there’s too many “mystical and sci-fi” games to be honest and this game has a crazy interesting storyline with a serial killer! Such a fun game that draws you in as soon as you start playing, I didn’t find myself getting bored or disinterested one time. Nothing I really didn’t like about this one. Please, keep making more of these types of games!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hmmm, That's Strange! Detective Dana STRANGE is called upon in STRANGE Investigations to solve a STRANGELY familiar crime!! Very STRANGE that the abduction is so similar to her sister's that occurred 15 years ago. The culprit is still locked away for that terrifying crime. Or is he?? This new whodunit is just what I needed! I felt the demo was a great sample of what's in store in the full game. It was an easy decision to buy and as I move through the game, I'm not disappointed. The storyline is excellent as a creep is aloof doing all that makes this a good crime mystery. Sure wish we had more of these detective stories at BFG, with the more adult subject matter. I've been well entertained as I continue on. The game is busy with many activities and the pace is good. The tasks are not grueling and I don't expect to become bored at any point. The graphics are sharp and the colorful scenes have plenty to investigate as we search for clues to solve this case. The characters are well depicted in dress and voice-overs, they add extra interest to the story. Especially Dana. I feel the music is appropriate to this type of story and the more mature theme in this game is a big plus. The HOGs and puzzles are just average. Creativity is somewhat lacking, challenge is minimal. But still fun, just not enough of it. There are book pages and puzzle pieces to collect, 2 rooms to continue search. This time, for me, the collectibles and extras don't warrant the price tag. If not for a CE coupon about to expire, I would've waited for the SE. I always hope the Bonus Chapter is a good prequel or sequel to the story and I do enjoy the few extra games included. I hope that Strange Investigations is a sign of good things to come. A new series is always good news. IMO, each game in the series should bring a new detective with adult themed mysteries to solve. I tire of seeing the same characters umpteen times and the storyline going in crazy directions, it eventually diminishes the quality. This new release is entertaining, the story has held my interest, no tech problems interfering with the fun. There are 4 play levels which include a custom mode, so you can pick the challenge you enjoy most. I think the demo may give you a positive opinion of the game, at least it did for me. If you like detective stories, I recommend for a few hours of mystery-solving fun.
