Great set of videos, guys! I was looking for one of these for ages last night. I only watched the first video - partly because I love the sense of achievement when I figure out something by myself - but it was really helpful.

The quality of these videos are brilliant. Makes me think you guys should do video reviews for the website like you make for the DVD. Any chance of something like this in the future?

Cheers again. :wink:

This was just my way of not writing anything on Thursday... :wink: I especially enjoyed Elevator Action - I'll credit Edge with the actual discovery of the star, but the solution was 100% Xbox World 360 certified. Oh yes.

Elevator Action? Is that the one with the maze of cannons? Some brilliant puzzles on that one. How many of the 8 stars have you managed to get so far? I'm going to start the hunt tonight, after I get a hands-on with Soul Calibur 4.

:D

Is there that much to do? Talk about value for money. This looks more appetising than most retail releases out right now.

I can practically feel the smugness coming off the screen, Matthew. :lol:

I love puzzle games, but I am awful at them. I miss all the little obvious things and end up getting stuck on the simplest of puzzles. At the same time, I love perceviering and getting there in the end.

I'll try my best to get these 8 stars, but I can guarantee you that I'll find 7 and never locate the 8th.

Managed to find all eight on my own, though only after being tipped off about having to restart to get one of them because it needed some puzzle pieces separate.
Like I say, I found all 8 but I still need to figure out how to get the final one :? And I refuse to use a guide. I've gotten this far pretty much on my own, I need to get the final on my own too.

My opinion on this game changed quite a bit. Best 1200 points I've spent on Live so far. :D

That's a bit harsh!

Do you get anything for getting all the stars? I only do things if there's a reward.

I dont want to spoilt it for anyone, but what about the Ending?

Just tremendous, absolutley tremendous.

For those that dont think the game is worth 1200 MS points, have another think. Best game I have played in a while, easy. :D

Yep, I'd already picked up 2 stars already when I found that out so had to do it all again. Wasn't a bad experience though :D

No idea. I'll let you know when I get that last bloody star tonight :D

I bought this last week and haven't really sunk my teeth into yet, because I wanted to finish off Mass Effect.

It seems really hard though. I've got through a few puzzles completely, but the majority of them make no sense to me at all! I'll have a Braid evening tonight and see if I can figure out what's going on!

Dont listen to anyone who says you need an item to reach some pieces, thats bull.

I've spent the last few nights banging my head trying to solve these but finally got all 60 pieces and now theres more!! It really help when you;r struggling to just stop playing and come back to it. Some puzzles seem so easy later.

Honestly, BEST GAME EVER!!!!! A little on the expensive side but i really enjoyed it. Got all 60 puzzle bits, now just got to get the stars. This game deserves to win an award IMO. It's unlike anything I have ever seen before.
