Difference between collectors edition and regular edition?

[Post New]by danny_kiddo on Feb 8, 10 1:31 PM
Hi everybody, I already finished the collectors edition (good game btw) and I was wondering if there are any major differences... I'm guessing the collectors edition has more features but I'd like to know exactly what's the difference

Thank y'all!

Haven't finished the game yet and haven't played the collector's edition but the differences I have heard about are:

access to an in-game strategy guide
you can download the soundtrack
you can replay the hidden object scenes and puzzles
you can replay the cut scenes

I have seen the CE being advertised as having additional hidden object scenes but the feedback from the fish here is that it's just the ability to replay the scenes.

Mostly these CEs seem to have extras I am not interested in such as wallpapers, music to download and the ability to see/play scenes again (you can always just replay the whole game). Also there are a lot of games out there with no CE edition that still give these type of extras.

The in-game startegy guide means that you don't necessarily have to come out of the game if you are stuck to look at the forum or the walkthrough. However, I don't feel this is worth paying nearly 3 times the price of the regular edition as you can get access to help if you have the regular edition and if you look at the forum for the CE there are still plenty of people asking for help there even though they have the strategy guide.

It seems that what you are really paying for is the chance to play the game a few weeks earlier than those who want to buy the regular edition.

Thanks for the info. I bought the reg version and after I did, I saw the extras on the options and felt like maybe I should have gotten the CE. You have put my mind at ease, now that I realize I wasn't really missing anything! Thank you so much!
