Grim Tales: The Bride
Not 1 hr trial
Disappointed as I did not get to try this game for the full hour. Had only a short trial. Not going to buy if I can't get a decent trial first. Apart from that it seems to be a good HOS mystery game.

A well developed game
This is a good edition to the Grim Tales series. As the story unfolds, you are taken to different places to solve that part of the game. Then back to the house and than whisked away again. FUN!!
Long playing time
Lots of HO'S and puzzles
It adds another dimension to the saga.
A good buy for Grim Tales fans.

NO ending in SE
This is one of those games where you just want to strangle the developer. When it first came out, I loved this game and then it has one of the most abrupt endings ever and no info about what happens after that. People who bought the CE say the bonus chapter didn't really sum up anything for them either just had an intro that Luisa and her husband sell their house and get married and move on and since there are now other tales in this series, it makes more sense maybe to why the developers left the story so abrupt and open ended.
When I played this game, I was so disappointed that I boycotted this entire series for years. Its only in the last couple months I have allowed myself to take a closer look at the next few games in this series, read reviews and I ended up getting them because they have closure. It was a REALLY big disappointment in this game because the rest of it was sooo good and sooo different for its time. Elephant games really dropped the ball on this game but I think they learned because since this offering (one of the first I believe) they have really come along as a company and I support and love most all of their games.
Its a necessary game for the series but don't expect any closure. Luckily for you, the other sequels are already out so you can keep the story going. For us that bought this when it first came out, it was despair and WHY?

this game is a fun one. you do go back and forth but great story line and great games in each story line. has strategy and hidden objects and need more assistance at first which is good and makes it fun to do more than once.

Grim Tales: The Bride
I absolutely loved this game so much I had to buy it and I am glad I did. The graphics are awesome and I really enjoyed the hidden object scenes as well. The sounds went really well with the game, I enjoyed the game play and the story line was really good, I guess if there was anything I didn't like it was the mini games, never have been a mini game fan, but no biggie I always say thank God for skip buttons other than that it was in my opinion a perfect game.

The game felt thrown together
I found myself wanting to just finish the game. It could be the mood I was in but I am tired of these games that make no sense. I just had sissors and cut some tape and I walk upstairs and there is more tape but I don't have the sissors anymore since I threw them away and there is no possible way for a person all by themselves to get past police tape. How I long for one of these games that makes sense. Where a short fence doesn't stop me and I don't need a hammer to open a crate when I have a crowbar. A game where I don't throw away useful objects once I use them and am forced to find something new when I should be able to just go back and get that sissors, hammer, screwdriver where ever I threw it away.
Too many weird keys. Too much backtracking. It seemed that the item I needed was always in the farthest place. Objects I could have smashed or pried open I was forced to get a key for - although this is standard gameplay in these types of games.
The HOS were just junk piles. Why would I open a piano and find a pile of junk and some of it perishable. Sometimes junk piles are ok but the whole game was a junk pile of illogical objects. It barely mattered what the location of the pile was, the junk was the usual fare of objects.
Maybe I missed some of the journal or story but I have no idea what the villian was trying to do. The last part where I opened the villian's journal and picked up the item the journal immediatly closed and I never had a chance to read what the master plan was. The storyline was minimal and half-done.
On the plus side, there were some interesting puzzles I have never seen before. Counter to that, some of the puzzles were just following instructions, once you figured them out. And several of them I never understood what you were supposed to do so I just skipped them.
As I stated before, maybe it was my mood and I have played too many of these games but there was nothing here that really stood out and too much that made me want the game to end.

ONE OF THE MOST ENJOYABL IN PAST COUPLE OF YEARS
This is one of the best adventure-HOGS I?ve played in the past 2 years. 3 levels of difficulty with the ability to change during the game. There is a lot to do and places to visit as you investigate the circumstances of your sister?s death (or is it merely a disappearance ? there doesn?t seem to be enough evidence either way).
Gorgeous locations with amazing detail. Good variety of HOS (no magnifying glass needed), interesting mini-games and puzzles, which become more challenging as the game progresses. Instructions weren?t always clear, but you?re able to work them out with a little logic. Gameplay is straightforward. If you get stuck on what to do next, it has one of the most helpful hint systems I?ve seen. Ending left open one or two minor questions, but was otherwise satisfying. Very polished and entertaining.

Mayzy's Reviews - Grim Tales: The Bride
I just finished this game and I'm still scratching my head. The ending was so abrupt that it ruined what may have been a decent game. Perhaps the CE would explain better? I don't know and I'm certainly not about to pay to find out.
The graphics are lovely and the music is not bad. The plot has some huge gaping holes but otherwise is pretty predictable. There are a lot of HO scenes and they're nice in that they make sense. Call me crazy but I appreciate when there's actually music related stuff in the piano HO scene rather than... pickles and old fish.
Altogether it was a decent play up until the end and worth a look, but only if you've got a discount.
