For bells and whistles.....I'd go with Macromedia Authorware. I don't know too
much about the other programs, but I do know Authorware to be quite versatile
It does, however, have a steep learning curve. This can be helped if you know
other Macromedia products (Flash, Fireworks), committing the time to learning
it, and by having a team work together on a program (ex: have one person focus
on sound, another video, another artwork, and someone to oversee things and
assemble it all).
Also, I've found the Authorware community to be very open and helpful (check
out the user's group through the macromedia site).
