Grim Tales: The Bride Collector's Edition
fun hidden object/puzzle game
I really enjoyed the free trial!

I could not wait to finish the game.
The usual puzzles. No map for teleporting. All items are as far as possible apart for use so it is all clicking and clicking an clicking and clicking to backtrack back and forth. The boat ride several times was so boring. Puzzles were super easy or hard to understand what the objective was. Lots and lots of HO segments so much so that I who usually love HO segments just wanted to get it all over with. Music okay, but story was loosely woven together. Might have been considered good a few years back, but not in 2012 or 2013. I do not recommend this game standard or CE.

BRAVA! It really is so goood!
From my first bigfish game installment, I can say that it had a great start.
Most of the time I-and may I say we-have fun in playing the entire game. I dislike when i get confused sometimes but haha its entirely based on me anyway.
The graphics are good and the voicing of the characters. I love the storyline, it creates a very helpful thing with the gameplay.

A Great Game ~ From beginning to end ~
Just finished this game and just ready to start 'Grim Tales The Wishes'. I can't wait to get started. This 'Grim Tales' CE edition is just one game you don't want to pull away from and to get 'Bonus Games' is just more excitement. The Graphics are great and the story line is one you can really follow. The only downfall is that I played 'Legacy' first and it was such a long game, I thought this would be as long too but alas not to be. There was the 'Bonus Game' though, so it made the whole game worthwhile.

Beautiful, with a few technical issues
This game had a great story, and the imagery was superb. The length was good (quite long, and the bonus game in the CE edition made for another hour or so of good play).
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I didn't understand some of the mini games (although there's no penalty for skipping), and because there was no interactive map. To be fair, most action scenes weren't more than 4 or 5 clicks away.
Overall, very well done and entertaining.

Good Storyline & Graphics; GREAT Puzzles
LOVE HO games but most new ones have too much back and forth between locations. (ex: acquire an object then back out 3 times. Use object then go forward 4 times).
How about more games like the original MCF Huntsville.
I did enjoy the variety of puzzles in this game but some were unclear as to what had to be done.

A good time
This game was fun and engaging, but I do have a mixed review.
What I liked about this game is that game play was quite long, the graphics were beautiful and the music and sound effects were tastefully done. I played on expert mode and found that the adventure, HO scenes and puzzles were challenging enough without being too difficult or frustrating. Also, for me the bonus chapter was one of the most fun and enjoyable parts of the game.
There were two things that I did not enjoy about this game:
1. The first was that the HO scenes are completely random, junk piles that don't relate to the game. It's almost as if someone else designed the bonus chapter, because the HO scenes there were much less cluttered and random.
2. Endlessly running back and forth between scenes. This usually isn't something that bothers me in this genre of games, but in this game it did. The game play is largely divided into stand-alone "chapters". A lot of the game play was finding an object at one scene in a chapter and then having to run all the way to the other end of the chapter to use the object which would then give you another object that required you to run all the way to the other end of the chapter to use, endlessly back and forth, to and fro. Thankfully there are only 5 to 8 scenes to a chapter, so it wasn't too far to go; but I finally got to a point where if I ever got stuck I just went to the farthest scene from where I found an object and usually that was where it needed to be used.
In spite of the two things I didn't like about the game, overall I did find it to be a good game that I would recommend, especially the bonus chapter.

Great Hidden object game
Many hidden object games within the game...great story line
Best of the hidden object games I've tried

The puzzles are ridiciolus. They are not clearly explained in info as how to complete them. The story is boring and incomplere.
This game has you going from one end to complete a hidden object then running back where you just came from to do another thing, then back again to do something else. All you do is go back and forth.
Hidden objects are very easy to find. Puzzles to hard to have fun with then. Do not reccomend.

Grim Tales: the Bride CE
I liked the advertisment and I practically bought it without playing the demo, turns out it is not as great as I expected. Yes, the storyline is nice and the graphics are excellent, but I felt something missing. There is no creepiness or sudden feeling to it, and you are basically just go finding items in the HOG and solve mini games but luckily it's successor, the Legacy is super awesome!
