Customer Reviews
Death Upon an Austrian Sonata: A Dana Knightstone Novel Collector's Edition is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haunting Run In The Family Dana Knightstone thought she was the only one with the ability to see ghosts until a distant cousin, Sebastian Knightstone contacted her about his own experience with a troubled ghost. Sebastian has been ill for quite some time, his weakness has prompted him to retire as a famous musician. A fellow musician named Elise has been trying desperately to contact him from beyond, causing him to have repetitive dreams about her trying to hide her composed music before being murdered. What does this beautiful composer want to tell us about her murderer? The graphics are really good and every scene is packed full of inventory items to pick up and use, locks to tinker with and a ton of mini games so boredom isn't a factor here. The Hidden Object Scenes are very interactive, most have clues to uncover in order to open up locks and cabinets and they also have a zoomed in area to scavenge for additional objects. There are a ton of mini games such as placing torn paper fragments in the correct position according to clues given, rotating discs until they line up and then using those completed clues to figure out what stages fuses should be set at, red, green or completely turned off. The Collectors Edition has Concept Art, Wallpapers, Cutscenes, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME AND AWESOME AGAIN !!!! This is a beautiful game with hauntingly beautiful graphics, music and storyline. Long playing time. Many different locations. Fun puzzles (and I'm not a puzzle person). Great HO'S that were interactive and varied and NOT teeny tiny. Kudos to Boom Zap for a wonderful game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The game's great..but the trophies not so much I love the game and the story is amazing. The only prob I had was the trophies. Some are stupid and not really worth your time. The bonus game is a 70 like 30 dislike. I'm not a trophy person and it's my minor pet peeve. The sounds great as well as the music, the story and everything. But if i were you I would disable the showing of the trophies for this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pretty fun game Have good voice over and music is good. The graphics are also good. Not that hard to play and has a good flow. HOG are different and fun. Puzzles are also not that hard and makes it fun. The hint button tell you what to do and where to go. For me that is a little more info than needed but that is better than no hints. Different and fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another awesome DK game! I owe every title of DK game and this one I bought without trying the demo. The game, as usual excels in music, graphic and story. There is less number of puzzles, which makes me so happy. BZ is so well known to me for creating lots of puzzles in their games but this time it's moderate. Not too many, which is great. Can't wait to see the next game of DK novel!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lets have an adventure! This game is so awesome! I played the demo and even before the time ran out, i have decided that i will buy this game! STORY: Its quite different compared to everything that is being released these days. The ghost love story is just one part of the game. Dana having her own adventure trying to find out whats the story behind the ghost is so wonderful. GAMEPLAY: The puzzles are clever. Its not too easy and not too hard. The hidden object areas are very interactive and fun. Its a good mix of puzzle and hidden object. Great job to the developers! I can say that this is the best of this series yet! The hints are useful and helps me out when im stuck. I'm old and forgetful, so having the journal being clear and available is very nice. GRAPHICS: I loved the graphics! Its so clear and not messy. Its realistic and just my cup of tea. The ghost and the characters are so beautiful and handsome, they are too good to be true. Ship me now to Austria! MUSIC: Its relaxing and thrilling at some points. Very nicely done! I love the ambient sound effects. Makes me feel I'm really there. As a whole, I think this is a very solid game with good story. Just what I want to play to relax. I see myself as Dana having an exciting adventure! I've had enough of horror games already. This game is worth your money indeed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 007-ish Hidden Object game First time to play this game.. A good mixture of typical and unique hidden object games (like that sardines can that you have to open using that key-handle thing) with lots of other types of games along the way! Picturesque scenes from the first chapter down to the last with cool atmospheric animations and ambience.. Cutscenes are super cool! with all the necessary animations and stuff.. I love the drama ... and that James Bond action/chase in the beginning... Over all this game is really really good!!! makes me wanna buy the previous Dana Knightstone's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hauntingly beautiful... VERSION Collector's Edition demo DEVELOPER Boomzap Games GENRE Adventure/Hidden Object mystery STORYLINE You return in your role as Dana Knightstone, novelist and solver of romance mysteries. This time, you're called upon by your cousin, Sebastian, to investigate the enigma of a beautiful ghost of a musician. But you're not alone in your search to uncover the ghost's secrets! Your quest takes you to beautiful Austria. GAMEPLAY Your trusty journal holds your notes as well as clues you discover in your quest for the truth. To be honest, I became so engrossed in the game, I failed to notice the hint system and whether there was a map! This is more of an adventure game than a true HO game, in my opinion, as the HO scenes are so integrated into the storyline that they really seem a necessary part of the game, which is unusual. Some are of the list type, with a portion of the list requiring an extra step. Others are "find several objects that fit this category." TECHNICAL Hardly worth mentioning, but it is something that occurs in all Boomzap games…I have my trackpad set so that I don't have to press to click; I just have to tap. In the HO scenes and puzzles, the game doesn't recognize this; I actually have to press to click. No idea why. GRAPHICS The beautifully rendered 3D graphics are richly colored and captivating. CUTSCENES Sort of stop motion in style, but it doesn't detract from the story at all. MUSIC Haunting…really gorgeous. SOUND Both ambient and game sounds are appropriate and well done. VOICEOVER The voiceover acting is quite good, especially Dana's. SUMMARY Boomzap is one of my favorite developers, so I knew I'd enjoy this game. I'll definitely be adding it to my collection, but I'll probably wait for the SE (only because I have quite a few free game codes to use up). This one is worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just wonderful thank you BF for the bundle opportunity! I almost passed, sure glad I did'nt! I never played the first 2 games, so I looked them up and read the reviews and decided to try . these games are beautiful . major eye-candy! wonderful HOPAs I think they intricated every type of mini game / puzzle I've ever come across and some are in the HO scenes. very clever,absolutely loved it, but I'm a huge fan of the mini games and puzzles. loved the storylines , keep you thouroughly entranced. hint button though rarely needed tells you what to do next limited running back and forth in each scene then off to the next [new] scene. good narration and voice overs not too much talking in fact didnt need to skip it like in some games [cant shut em up lol] thanks again big fish for the bundle, hope alot of people took advantage of it. these games stay in my keeper file. happy gaming!
