We highly recommend the Collector's Edition as it comes ready with tons of bonuses: a bonus chapter, a strategy guide, wallpapers, videos, concept art, soundtracks, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects, a souvenir room, replayable hidden objects, and replayable puzzles. I've been playing this game for 2 hours and I still quite a ways to go. This Collector's Edition has 10 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art pictures, 9 Avatars, 6 Screensavers, 16 replayable Mini Games, 4 Music Soundtracks, 22 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, a built in Strategy Guide, a Bonus Chapter. In my opinion, seek and enjoy!
Graphics: They are absolutely gorgeous. The animals are totally adorable. And I just like looking at the scenery. The voice overs seems to be recorded by some really bored actors and the soundtrack doesn't excel either. For some the puzzles might seem very easy but I am guessing that most gamers enjoy puzzles that are not "rip your hair out" difficult. The graphics are beautifully hand drawn which the production team has become famous for in all of their games.
This is the newest game in the Punished Talents series. what I like is a good balance between slightly more challenging gameplay elements and easier ones. Voices are age and character appropriate, with emotion for a change. As always, try the demo first.
I found this game surprisingly fun and interesting. Game play was excellent. There was never a moment of boredom playing the game. If you prefer the CE version of games the Punished Talents: Dark Knowledge has collectibles, artifacts and morphing objects to be found.
Music is soothing until something is either happening or about to happen, then it cuts loose. I really got into the story when the demo ended. Most of the HOP's offer a small interactive puzzle to solve. Colors are quite nice and bright, very true.
Punished Talents: Dark Knowledge has a terrific gameplay and an excellent storyline. The HOPS are a lot of fun and there is the usual variety but I still prefer the list type. The CE version of the game is rather light on extra content although there are morphing objects and some fairly "in your face" collectibles to find. I just don't get what's up with the cartoonish graphics.
As always, try if out for yourself and see what you think.
