Grim Tales: The Bride
Far to easy
I read the reviews first and thought they sounded good, but i am glad i didn't go ahead and buy it. Because i found it too easy, HO and the puzzles too. It's not that often i manage to compleat the 1 hour demo game, but is did and still had 2 mins to go,,,,,,,,so that is why I am saying it is easy.. But it is up to you out there to try the demo first as it may-be what you are looking for..Good luck xxx

Missing Sister! Puzzles! Intensity! Deus ex machina???
As far as puzzle challenge, I really enjoyed the game. They were not too hard, but not too easy either. The art is fantastic, and I appreciate the attention to detail.
I tend to play games for the story line, and this game wanted some serious explanation as to your mysterious guide and your family's past. The ending was quick and caught me by surprise since I thought more would be revealed. Good game, some plot holes.

If it would actually WORK, it'd be better....
Decided to give it a shot for the 1hr free trial.... A fun game until it decided to freeze up repeatedly and not work anymore. My Mac more than meets the minimum requirements. The game would be MUCH better if it actually worked for longer than 20 minutes.

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.

This story was good. The explanation of the puzzles was very vague and often I had a difficult time even figuring out what I was supposed to do. I did like that I could use the hint button to find out where to go next when I was lost. Overall, an ok game. The end was anticlimactic.

Fun Hidden Object Game
I've played this game a few times. It was alright I guess except for the last part of the game when you have to rotate the tiles.

Grimm Tales-the Bride
I played this game again after a while, it lacks inspiration, clues are from one place to another and I feel I'm lost after a while. The puzzles aren't the best either.

An ok game, but....
I rated it 3 because it was ok. It's certainly worth playing, but I'm glad I got it on sale.
The graphics are great, the HOS are fairly easy, the puzzles were a mix. Some required some thought others were easy.
A few things kept this from being a great game:
Number 1 is that there is no sound. No atmosphere noises, no voices, just noises when you click. I always turn off the music because it drives me crazy, so I can't speak to that.
There is no map and a LOT of places to remember. If you find a place where you need an object, it will almost always be 8 clicks and turns away. I just hate that.
Then storyline was week and the ending was very anticlimatic and abrupt. I always feel cheated when they do that.
So, with all that, even though it has pretty graphics and it was nice and long, I can't see this as anything more than an average game.

Wow - not as good as I thought it would be
I really liked the story line, so I purchased the game. It has a lot of chapters, and it's a good length, but some things I didn't like:
Way too many HOS. Every time you find an item and put it where it belongs, your reward is a HOS. There are tons of them. And they're standard HOS, not even mixed up (silhouettes, pieces of items, putting things back). They're all straight "find the object", words only.
The ending is SUCH a letdown! I thought I'd at least see a nice wrap-up, but no. Right after solving the last game, it ended! Got the main menu suddenly. Really disappointing.
So here's my opinion:
If you love the standard HOS games, you'll love this
If you like more adventure and mixed HOS games, you won't.
If you like a good story line, you'll love this
If you like a good story line that comes to a real conclusion, you won't.
