A Vampire Romance: Paris Stories
Another "Extended Edition" Failure From This Developer
I have seen only one awesome game series from this developer and that was the classic epic Syberia, which I own on CD. After that, it's almost as if their budget or resources were cut and they started putting out cheap, cookie cutter rubbish. So, whenever you see an "Extended Edition" game by Mzone/Solilab . . . RUN!! Run far, far away. They are the only developer I know who can take potentially great storylines, or timeless tales like Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, and turn them into horribly tedious games. I tried to play this particular game for an hour because I saw some promise in the vampire storyline. But, I didn't make it. Graphics are flat, and some characters don't even have faces -- they're just black silhouettes.. The dialogue is silly and juvenile. Instructions for gameplay and minigames are sketchy. I agree with all the other reviewers who hated the subway to get around. There were two minigames I ran into that I wasn't allowed to skip. Once I figured out how to solve the second minigame, my "drawing" wasn't deemed correct and I was forced to start over. After the third time of starting over, I decided I'd had enough. Seriously, don't waste your time on this one.

Overall the game was ok. The graphics were good. I felt the storyline was weak from beginning to end. When I finished I said you have to be kidding, I was still waiting for the good part to start. In all fairness if you are a new game player try this but if you have played any HO games I think you will be disappointed.
I finished this game in less then a day.

I Really Like This Game
This game has great scenes of Paris. If you really like HOG games then this will be a good game for you. The only thing I didn't like about this game is that it's to short. I hope they come out with a second game that starts up where this one ends. Also if you really like love stories then you'll love this one.

I bought the game without the free trial, because of the hype and graphics advertised seemed worth while. I could not glean what was expected of me. I never got out of the train station. I really love hidden object games, but never got to a hidden object scene. I'm sorry I didn't use the free trial. I won't make that mistake again. I may go back some day after my feathers get unruffled, and try again. Right now I have nothing good to say about the game. I would not recommend this game. I would warn away instead.

Waste of time
I'm glad that we can previews of the games. I wouldn't spend a cent. Confusing subways, stoooopid mini-games, what is the clue pattern? I gave up after 20 minutes.
