  1. There are sidebars on the left of the screen which indicate the number of those jigsaw pieces you have found. Rating: 2 B. Voices were the same as in the other games, but again, we do not speak. A hooded evildoer has emerged and is on the prowl. As always, give this one a try and see what you think.

  2. There are sidebars on the left of the screen which indicate the number of those jigsaw pieces you have found. Help him escape the clutches of the person s involved and investigate the motive behind these kidnappings and apprehend the culprit s. Rating: 1 F.

  3. Although I do think this is a wonderful game, please try the demo to see if you will enjoy this game as well. They were large and full of color and not washed out. We all have different taste in games so I always recommend that you try the demo before you buy the full game. For a poorly scripted, poorly plotted, poorly acted, trite, banal, and boring game.

  4. However, even casual games are sometimes hard to play and to understand. Our little black-eyed child truly makes this game. There is nary one challenger during the demo and this causes the drop to 4 star status. I could barely here the voices in some places.

  5. What drags the game down a bit are the too easy HO segments and puzzles. Opening these cookies reveals jigsaw puzzle pieces used to play puzzles to play at the end of the game. We play the game as a detective who tags along with the ever changing Dupin.

  6. That being said, I found that the Dark Tales game — Morella — is really quite good. Sound FX weren't too bad, even with the annoying chime when an item was found, but we did have very nice storm FX when outside. Dupin's final line made me laugh as he all but invokes Poe himself by name. For a poorly scripted, poorly plotted, poorly acted, trite, banal, and boring game. Opening these cookies reveals jigsaw puzzle pieces used to play puzzles to play at the end of the game.

  7. The bonus chapter is a story by the male housekeeper in the main game. Assembly puzzle. Yet, this one isn't like that. If I wrote nothing more about this game, those three words sum it up to a certainty —as they did for the last six games of this series that I reviewed.

  8. Rating: 1 D. When I play a game, as when I read a book or watch a play, character development is a large part of my enjoying that particular media. This could have been a very nice game without much work, but it definitely needs to either be updated or retired. Instead of time-consuming HOP scenes, this game has many mini-HOP scenes which help maintain a good pace within the game. You have to run over the thing that needs the item.

  9. Rating: 2 B. Ligeia is a great addition to the series! Reproduce 3 symbols onto a grid. The morphs don't change into something else, they simply disappear, and reappear again after a fairly long pause. The boat maze took me a little while to see how they were doing it but I got it.

  10. You can't go back and get any collectible or morph. When arrows disappear, you must start over. The graphics were well done and sound effects were within expectations. When your in the boat to just change to walking you just move there. This is my new favorite game in this series.

  11. And the writtings, subtitles and the events in the game like the definition of the medecines, the collectibles, are too small and really hard to read. Furthermore, I have long suspected that Anna from Nightfall is the player character, and there's something in the bonus chapter that suggests I'm right! Prepare to aid Dupin on another case. Still, he doesn't show any emotion when speaking. I just can't and won't.
