Fear for Sale:  City of the Past

Based on the Beta and CE Demos.

A lovely young couple sits beneath a statue in the park ... lovingly gazing into each others' eyes.  Then, the statue ...... reaches out ...... to grab them!  Statues in Eastwood are attacking the people.  Your character, journalist Emma Roberts, is there to investigate.

Graphics were very well done.  No over-use of those crayon colors that drive people crazy.  Ok. Ok. Me.  They drive ME crazy.  lol.  Music, especially when the game started, was on a very short loop (annoying) but it did get a bit better.   I really can't comment on the Sound fx, however, the 'special fx' were amazing.  If you want the absolutely BEST experience with this game, point and click on EVERYTHING!!!!  The 'visual' effects were just out of this world AMAZING!  Yep.  Just click on everything.  lol.

Voice overs started off kind of slow ..... literally.   H-e-l-l-oooooooo, woouuuullldd yooouuuuu plllleeeassseeeeee haaannndddd mmmmmeeeeee thaaaaatttttt pppppeeeeen.  Ultimately, the voice overs got much better.  Whew.

Casual, Normal, Hard and Custom difficulties.

Instead of an unobtrusive diary/journal, you have a humongous briefcase that has your notes and objectives.  You do get a transportable map which has a gold star show up if you've found all the collectibles and morphing objects in that area!  The 'hint' button is NOT transportable.

HOGs - 28 - ran the gamut from silhouette to find 'x' number of something to list type and all were interactive.  There is an alternative jigsaw puzzle.  Sometimes, I just could NOT cope with the HOG because it was sooooo 'busy'.  So, it was nice to know an alternative was there.   Mini Games - also 28 - were quite new with some being lengthy in that there were several parts to it.

CE Bling:  The usual fare of wallpapers, music, replayable games and ..........
*   Collectibles - 25 - (5 each of 5 sets consisting of toys, ocarinas, postcards, actress' things and I forget what the last one is.  Bad me).
*   Beyond Objects (Morphing Objects) - 36. 

Every time you collect something you earn  invisible coins that go onto your Press Pass (which sticks out of the left side of the screen), thus upgrading you from cub reporter to journalist, etc.

Is it CE-worthy???  Collectibles, Morphing Objects and a Bonus Game.  The extras were just too easy to find. 

A nice storyline and I LOVE the special fx so it's a definite purchase for me.  CE?  Don't know.  Maybe with a great BOGO sale.


Where am I going? And why am I in this hand basket!!!?
