Grim Tales: The Bride
great game play
I really liked this game, the graphics were good, i liked the fact there was brain teasers and other games within it and not JUST hidden object. The story was a little cheesy but not the worst. really enjoyed it and it was a long-ish (not in a boring way) game.

Fun Game, But Abrupt Ending
This was a really fun game, with challenging puzzles and an interesting story that unfortunately falls apart at the end. There's a lot of running back and forth between locations, but there's not a lot of clicking necessary to get from scene to scene, so I didn't mind that much.
Really the only complaint I have about this game was the sudden ending with almost no explanation as to what actually happened. If you don't mind looking past that flaw, this is a great pick for fans of hidden object/puzzle games.

This was a good game. beautifly done. The HO games were fun and clear. The game was long, which was a good thing. The only thing that was kind of crazy, was the ending. It was not very good. It stops quickly and abruptly.

Good Game but Story was not well developed.
The puzzles were very enjoyable. The graphics were wonderful. The story was kind of a let down though. Not to give anything away but, after completion of the last puzzle, I looked away a max of 20 seconds. When I looked back I was back at the menu. Bummer :( Plus the overall story started out really interesting, and then they lost me. Good game.

Puzzles and visuals were good
You are off to save your twin sister from a sinister situation!
Innovative puzzles plus gorgeous visuals and ambience (realistic rain and snow) drew me in to this one. Unfortunately in the end the threadbare storyline let it down, leaving me feeling a little hollow inside after finishing it. Too much use of keys & locks really dulled the gameplay, especially towards the end.
There were moments of creative inventory item use which had me smiling, but these were rare in the second half of the game. Glitch alert -- quite a few of the puzzles had reset buttons which did not work properly.
Admittedly however, I was hooked on this game and finished in hour-long spurts (total 4-5 hours). I also liked the big and colourful hidden object scenes ? no eye strain :) Hints also told you exactly what you needed to do.
I?d recommend this game to puzzle-lovers, and you?ll enjoy it as long as you don?t take the story or game too seriously! Giving this 3.5 stars.

Good Game Deplorable Ending - Get the CE & save on frustration.
Overall this is not a bad game, but the ending was atrocious, the game simply stopped.......very frustrating. I understand the proper ending was included as the bonus in the CE version, which is disappointing - bonus means extra, not completion!
As I said though overall, not a bad game. Nice visuals & sound, interesting puzzles. A bit of running back & forth, but not to badly. If the ending wasn't so bad, I would rate it higher.

Okay to try, but not to buy
Looked at the reviews and thought to give it a try.
Enjoyed the story line and was good to find out that the scavenger hunt aspect of the game was actually pertinent to the story, however, there is too much running back and forth for my liking. The hidden object aspect of this game was an afterthought and lacking in my opinion. Some of the mini-games were challenging.
The free trial offer was not an hour and did not convince me enough to buy this game.

Too much going back & forth between scenes
There is a lot going for this game; it is from Elephant Games, one of my favourites, there are stunningly beautiful graphics & 3 modes of gameplay. Easy with lots of sparkles, glints, a hint that recharges in about 15 seconds & a hint that tells you exactly what to do next to boot. Advanced mode, no sparkles anywhere & a fiendish Hardcore mode, no sparkles, no mini game skips & no hints.
The mini-games were relatively easy & I love the cursor ? it turns into a beautifully slender & elegant hand on objects to pick up.
The diary tells you the story of the game although it does little else, unfortunately no voiceovers but????.I have never had to go back & forth so many times in a game, there is no interactive map so you can?t jump to scenes; you just walk back again & again & again ad infinitum.
I would buy at a sale price & keep for a rainy day when I have run out of games to play but this does not rock my world
