Just finished the CE version. This is the fifth game in the series that I have played. Some weren't all that impressive. One game (Lost Tides) had such VERY easy puzzles that it wasn't much fun, and another (Deck of Fates) had such a punitive and "brutal" aspect to it that I didn't go beyond the Demo Game. But The Perfect Show and Child of the Forest both were good, so I tried The Sword and The Fury. Was glad I did.
Sword and Fury was long, with a mixture of too-easy versus challenging puzzles. Some were so easy as to not be puzzles at all (!), while a couple of them were difficult, indeed. Some people might hate this "range" of difficulty. On the whole, though, I found them all easy enough to complete without needing any help or having to Skip any. I've played games with MUCH harder puzzles.
Finding your way around was no problem, and I never needed the Map. Some scenes could be finished with the items found in it, but other times, you'd carry something around for quite a while before figuring out where to use it. ha ha I did have to ask for a Hint a couple of times, when I found myself stumped about where to go next. This was mainly because the hot spots in many scenes were quite small by casual game standards, and it was easy to overlook something and then be missing an item you needed. It was a satisfyingly long game without a lot of shagging your butt around needlessly. It was not overloaded with HO scenes.
As for CE versus SE: The Bonus Game was a short prequel that explained the motivation of the character who started the Main Game but is not vital to the story, if you want to buy just the SE version. In the CE version, there are the usual morphing and collectible objects, for those who like that sort of thing.
I gave this game my second highest rating and plan to Replay it at some point.
