We need more games like this, FANTASTIC! I didnt want it to end. If your going to purchase only one game this year, this is the one

A very nice game indeed
August 24, 2012

I find this to be a very good game. Of course, as always with Elephant, the graphics are impeccable. The soundtrack may be a little unnerving, but it goes with the overall theme. The storyline itself is quite interesting: the idea of being inside the head of someone and of rummaging through his - in this case, her - subconscious, allows for a lot of surrealistic combinations. There are not too many HOS - which I can appreciate - and they are easy to finish. Some new puzzles and minigames are introduced... most of them are rather easy, but others offer more of a challenge. There's some going back and forth, but the map allows you to see where you are, where you still have something to do, which locations are completed and which locations aren't open yet. Moreover, the map allows you to jump from one location to another. There are a lot of interactive objects to be used, but your inventory never gets overburdened. The actions themselves are mostly quite straightforward, but some of themrequire a bit more creative thinking. All in all, this is one of the better games that I have played lately.

Another Outstanding Surface!!! CE x SE
August 24, 2012

I've played (and bought) the CE and today I played the free trial of SE to see the differences. I was glad to have chosen CE because it is more complete and provides much more entertainment (as bonus chapter, SG, flowers to collect, with which you go shopping for your office, bonus mini games and HOS, so on). You are a psychic who will try to communicate and understand "the noise", reading the mind of a girl found unconscious near a bloody knife... Great and interesting story, with a splendid narrator's VO, and perfect cutscenes with real people (and you can review the videos in journal). The game is very well developed, rich in detail. The ambiance is nice, the sound is very appropriate, immersive atmosphere. In all places has a lot to find and much to do. The objects you find are used nearby and you do not have to keep going back and forth. Hint is very helpful, explains your next step. HOS with good visibility, not too difficult, no need to use hint or stick your eyes on the computer to find the objects. Brand new excellent mini games, very amusement, like the "boat and apples". It has a interactive map, with indications of where you are, the places you've been and where it has something to do. It also contains what must be healed, on the girl! Highly recommended!! Assurance of a great weekend !

Better Than I Anticipated!

I wasn't too sure about this first, as I delved into the story further I became intriqued by not just the storyline, but by the unique puzzles. Also the storyline allowed for very imaginative scenes, characters and puzzles. The graphics were crisp, the HOGS were rather easy. I felt a little frustrated on one of the unique puzzles, I did however feel the satisfaction once I completed it! The use of video really brought the story to life and pulled you into the SURFACE! I really enjoyed this game!

cannot stop playing

BEAUTIFUL graphics ... just the right amount of interaction with the storyline ... GREAT storyline! ... don't know the ending yet ... i really LOVE when the game keeps taking you on the journey, and doesn't leave you stranded with a long dry spell of HOs ... wish there were a few more of those unique puzzles ... but ONE OF THE BEST! ... bought this after 15 min ... absolutely recommend this game!

Great Fun
August 24, 2012

I have to agree with the first 4 reviewers. I bought the CE and I'm glad I did for the extras and the strategy guide. The artwork really appeals to me. HO scenes are nice and clear and not just junk piles. The map is interactive (one of my favorite features in any game). Lots of VERY imaginative locations ... my favorite was the desert.

great fun game play it

The graphics are one of the best and the music is good. Easy HOS. Clues can be somewhat hard to find at times but the hint button is great. Has a map that shows you areas needed to find clues. Just a fun game. The other surface was good also. You will not be disappointed in buying this game. Do not forget to look for blue flowers.

Nice story for a challenging game!
August 24, 2012

Again a good Elephant game! The story is really interesting, you travel in different locations to help "Jane Doe" who is unconscious... I played in Advanced mode - no sparkles. - The graphics are clear and the objects in the HOS easy to find. - The puzzles are really interesting and sometimes quite challenging, but not impossible to solve. - There is no journal. - There is an interactive map, that is very useful. It shows you where there are tasks and you don't have to walk back and forth. - The hint system is very good. It took me 3 hours to finish. I played an Elephant game just before this one, and I must say the quality of these games is high! Just the right level of challenge, great graphics and good game length!

Truly 5 star, quality game.

(I played the CE. The main plot is 100% tied up here in the SE. Full CE vs SE differences at bottom if interested, but worth noting there is nothing to collect (flowers) or any extras in this SE version.) An exceptional game from elephant, a worthy successor to the first in the series (surface: mystery of another world). I'd say game of the year but they would be competing with their first surface game! This is a stand alone game, completely different characters to the first surface game, it?s not a sequel. Here it?s a psychic who goes into a girl?s mind to try and save her, and the ending I loved. This gives the opportunity to create fantasy places for gameplay and it was so fun and beautiful. There weren?t many HOS (my kind of game!) and it?s mostly adventure with some pure gems of puzzles, a lot original. They brought back the live actors and the problem of lip synch has been solved. The hint button is the usual spoiler/mini guide so no need for the SG. There is the usual 3 choice of hardness setting but all can be changed mid game. Hardest no skipping, no hints. The main thing I love about surface series is that every chapter is a brand new environment, new transporter maps and you don?t go back into old areas (apart from throne room & outside of it but it has been changed). With live actors being integrated really well into a scene, along with other type cutscenes, propel the story along there is no diary but if needed you can refresh your memory and replay cutscenes. The music in one part with the musicians was just so. You can swap between 3 levels of hardness during play, so no need to worry if you choose hardcore. HIDDEN OBJECT SCENES- All were non active, list type, mostly junk pile but no tiny items, no random click penalty, non repeating, very clear. If you are looking for the innovative, inventory style HOS of the first game you will be disappointed as these are straight HOS. PUZZLES - A lot original, and I'd say nearly all were between mediu
