Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poes The Fall of the House of Usher

You and your colleague, Detective Dupin, have accepted an odd case at the ancient House of Usher – to find the twin sister of Roderick, who has vanished without a trace. As you delve deeper into the mystery, the connection between the twin's malady and the old estate appears even more entwined. Why are townspeople disappearing? What secret is locked in the forbidden library? And can you and Dupin find the answers before more innocent victims are claimed?

I have since enjoyed all the Poe books and movie adaptations. Mini-games were interesting and as customary with these developers, some were even challenging and required some time and effort to solve and I think that is what these developers excel in. There are mostly easy puzzles 13some with a new twist, and a few hard ones. I think ERS did a really good job of these new characters and a really good job of this story. Dupin, and of course, ourselves. They outdid themselves. It shows the developers Hollywood Files: Deadly Intrigues put a bit of effort in to them. Certainly not cute, it is interesting and visually striking. I think the thing I loved most about this game was the gameplay. This game has everything you could want in Iron Sea: Frontier Defenders game. These graphics are just as good as they were a few years ago. You have you SG and on you right side of the screen, there is the bottle with the Reborn One that has the power to being life to stone. The Reborn One is an interesting character visually, but has nothing to say for itself.

Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by rosekaufmann from SUPERB This is a superb game with outstanding voice overs, crisp graphics, sound and logical but complex nonlinear gameplay, plenty to do and see. But all the same, I would probably buy the SE just to see how this amazing story pans out. Of course you have a very nice map of the house and the grounds, plus your hint button, but you also discover photos that match up to areas within a scene that provide additional clues. Now, Roderick is deathly ill, and Madeline has disappeared! Parts of a message appear on the back of each photo and the message is compiled in the journal. This is still a 5 star game as are all of the Dark Tales games. One issue I have is that the character's lips no longer move. Oh well, the voice-overs are still there as is the music in the background. Adventure game play was interesting and surprisingly challenging and somewhat confusing if you opt to disable your blackbar tips. You have been summoned to the Usher estate by a Dr. I loved every second of it. Rated 5 out of 5 by smoovasbutter from Decent entry in series but nothing outstanding Pros: Extras: Good wallpaper, ability to take photos and save them, screen savers etc ERS have given us the choice of puzzle difficulty once again. There is so much to do, so many locks to unlock by finding items, so many unexplained story items - the lake turns into a mysterious swamp. There are no extras which sometimes I do prefer if the game holds enough challenge which this game does.

Great job and a Juliettes Fashion Empire for my library! There is so much to do, so many locks to unlock by finding items, so many unexplained story items - the lake turns into a mysterious swamp. It was the voice-overs! The Hoise HOS has clues that are riddles. God Bless Everyone! I must admit I found it entertaining when he fell off the perch or drug a huge sunflower seed up to nibble on, but, the purpose of this rat is an unsolved mystery to both Detective Thd and myself Detective pennmom36!


Definitely good. Certainly not cute, it is interesting and visually striking. What can I say, I love Dupin, I love Poe and I love these developers, and despite the RAT on my screen, I loved this game as a CE and for those who wish to try a simpler version without any distraction, they may find the game play a bit more challenging and interesting. The demo barely gets you started on the story and leaves many things unexplained. Check out "The House on Usher" for some different fun on this subject. I really liked the hidden object scenes where they would give you a short riddle or description and you had to find that item, the entire HOS was done that way! God Bless Everyone! The last specific feature to this game was The Reborn One. More people begin to disappear on your watch and so it is up to you and your colleague, Detective Dupin, find Madeleine and unlock the secret that plagues the House of Usher and all who are connected to it. Main menu offers you three game modes along with customized settings which is much appreciated. Very, and I mean VERY loose adaptation of the classic story Very abrupt ending cinematics The bonus chapter didn't seem to make a whole lot of sense Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by RoyBoy from Longest game I've ever played. I encountered only a few puzzles during the demo but one of them was very tricky and difficult to get right so I am hoping that this is indicative of the puzzles for the rest of the game. I really enjoyed it, but if used too much, it will become tedious, and it was used quite a bit in the demo.

Roderick has given us a code handed down from his Grandfather and naturally we know how to solve this ancient riddle and find "the Reborn One" who is able to turn anything made of stone into reality. Definitely good. ERS is still right up there with Eipix for my favorite developers. Unfortunately the RAT is back, perched right there in the left side of my screen, squirming around and occasionally nibbling on a seed. Dupin, and am sure it is only a matter of time before the detective agency becomes a family business. There are no coins to collect like in the CE which actually did not bother me. I wouldn't say this is your average HOPA. The interactive transporter map that indicates where you have tasks to accomplish and I find it one of the most valuable tools I can have in a game. Map- The map is interactive and very helpful. What can I say, I love Dupin, I love Poe and I love these developers, and despite the RAT on my screen, I will forgive them for this one discrepancy and immediately set out to purchase the game. The back story is delivered to us in various ways, some character reminiscences, combined with sepia animated sketching. Puzzles are many and vary widely in difficulty. The Reborn One is an interesting character visually, but has nothing to say for itself. The story takes me back to the old ERS: Haunting, creepy and addicting.

Morris has filled us in a bit, it would seem that the Usher twins, Madelein and Roderick, share a physical bond, when one of the twins is injured the other will feel this same pain, to the point of physical impossibility, if one is given a vaccination they both bleed! Again with the similar graphics, visuals, sounds and effects; it seems that time does not deter them from their methods and techniques. Hopefully you have fun with The Fall of the House of Usher, too! Mini-games were interesting and as customary with these developers, some were even challenging and required some time and effort to solve. Madeline sounded like a hick from North Carolina no offense, but I expected a different voice from a Gothic story, this wasn't even the biggest disappointment, her twin brother had an African American voice. Quite fun and fast paced. I feel the explanation for all this, when it comes, is unclear and somehow unsatisfying. What is missing is the FG and to tell you the truth, I enjoy playing a game without having easy access to help. I cannot wait to buy this and get answers to all my questions! Always a quality game, it's a guarantee! It was the voice-overs! It was so exciting, I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. There were also regular list items, slightly interactive such as putting a sugar cube into a cup of tea to make sweet tea, and there were HOS that required you to find 12 feathers for example. I have missed Dupin and his adventures and at last, I find myself assisting him in what is one of my favorite Poe tales: The Fall of the House of Usher. Every item to be found was put in the form of a riddle one at a time such as what has several arms and only one leg with the answer being a fork.

11 thoughts on “Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poes The Fall of the House of Usher

  1. There are mostly easy puzzles 13 , some with a new twist, and a few hard ones. There's nothing like an Edgar Allan Poe Mystery to help you wile away the hours on those days when weather isn't inspiring and you just want to sink into a good book or a good suspenseful game and let yourselves go! It is sad to see a team that was once at the pinnacle of innovation in game development now take a step backwards. Extras include the normal movies, wallpaper, art, screensavers, music, mini-games, HOS, the story, a bonus game, and the strategy guide.

  2. Compelling music and cutscenes. You will earn achievements and when you come across a dollhouse and use a magnifying glass to collect a certain amount of coins which will be used to equip your criminal laboratory. In MHO, this is a great game! I loved every second of it.

  3. Detective Dupin and I have enjoyed the Fall of Usher because it requires some thought as to what to do next, and the puzzles were well thought out. I encountered only a few puzzles during the demo but one of them was very tricky and difficult to get right so I am hoping that this is indicative of the puzzles for the rest of the game. What we have here is an entertaining HOPA game with all the bells and whistles that you can imagine, including collecting coins and visit the shop to buy equipment for your lab.

  4. Is he a pet? Like all of the Edgar Allan Poe's The back story is delivered to us in various ways, some character reminiscences, combined with sepia animated sketching. I have since enjoyed all the Poe books and movie adaptations.

  5. It was really fun and a little challenging to figure them out. The mini games are very easy such as matching up alike doves on a gate but the one I liked the best was training the mouse in a series of mazes. A few things have changed with this latest edition of Dark Tales, the graphics are still beautiful, but it seems a bit on the cartoonish side to me, it's not bad just different. You have to tinker with it a bit by opening certain paths that would allow you to keep the door to the key open.

  6. Dupin's voice has changed. I have come to expect the same type of artwork, voice-overs and music and I have to admit, their games continue to entertain me and thrill me. I wasn't disappointed! Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by patrickjoseph from Stunning graphics! Yep, I went overboard and purchased all of them!!

  7. Perhaps it is just me; I seem to remember that their graphics use to be a bit more vibrant. We learn of the strange disease shared by the twins that is rather unsettling and soon discover that there is a link between the illness and the old estate. Unfortunately the RAT is back, perched right there in the left side of my screen, squirming around and occasionally nibbling on a seed. I loved everything in this collectors edition, graphics, music, puzzles, HO scenes, wallpapers, achievements, collections, screensavers, the works. Every item to be found was put in the form of a riddle one at a time such as what has several arms and only one leg with the answer being a fork.

  8. Certainly not cute, it is interesting and visually striking. Puzzles are many and vary widely in difficulty. As always, you have dark corners to explore and items to find in order to unlock doors and solve puzzles. The thing I love about ERS is they stick to designs they're good at. I don't think I'd recommend this game for beginners, to be honest, because of all the strange new features.

  9. Enough to curdle the blood. This makes the game slightly more unrealistic Normally, I wouldn't have an issue with voice-overs, but with this game I do. In this game, our story begins with a new case which involves the disappearance of Madeleine, twin sister of Roderick. You and Dupin occasionally exchange quips and you pick up clues and also use your camera to take pictures for your album which also earns you an achievement.

  10. The first one gave clues via riddles and this was a great addition. And unfortunately, Madeleine has disappeared and the twins' condition is deteriorating. There are a lot of things to do and to find. Built-in Strategy Guide- great for help with puzzles. You can switch to puzzle mode and play a unique game that requires you to match three but the items are not linear, but in a triangle.

  11. The CE has some nice extras, so I may go for it. But this is an exceptional game regardless, and delightfully dark. You have a diary that contains your notes as well as the photos that you collect. I loved the mini-games that come in hard or casual mode to choose when solving. It shows the developers actually put a bit of effort in to them.
