There seem to be a lot of releases of this album. Are they visually any different?

The disc art for this one is different, yes. I'll upload an image when I can be bothered to set up my scanner.

Regarding reprints, if it's from a different publisher in a different region, but more or less the same disc, does that warrant adding a reprint album? Or should they be consolidated into a single entry (with conflicting publisher, price and release date information etc.)? I notice a scan of the Russian version of the disc has been uploaded to the German/Austrian/Swiss entry for example. The entry for Dreamfall also has scans from different enclosure versions added to the main album, instead of in separate child albums.

I think that generally they should be given separate entries, especially since collectors might want to specify which one they have. Those different-region scans that were uploaded to other editions should eventually be split out to their own album page.

On the other hand, when they just take the same disc and put it in games in multiple regions, those should get a single entry.
