I enjoyed the game because I like anything to do with Poe. I found the storyline interesting and objects were not too difficult to find.

Love this series
The Dark Tales series is my favourite hidden object series so far. I live the story, the graphics and the challenge level was great. The only thing I didn't like was the voice for Julien although I can't quite put my finger on why.

I started in the middle.
While this is actually the third game in the Dark Tales series from ERS, it was the one that introduced me to the series. I had the great fortune to be one of the beta testers for this game, and I was so disappointed when my trial ran out that I was absolutely determined to buy the game when it was released!
The idea of being buried alive terrifies me, as it would terrify pretty much any sane person. So to have a game where you confront that very fear is really spellbinding. Unlike its two predecessors, this Dark Tale (and all those that come after) includes voice acting for Detective Dupin and the other NPCs you meet. Dupin has a NICE voice!
The graphics are beautiful, the settings seem real despite being animated, and the mystery demands that you stick with it to the very end. The bonus chapter only makes everything that much more disturbing too. Definitely worthwhile!

Poe doesn't even have to promote this!
This is a great module in itself.
Starting out talking to a ghost raises the suspense already.
As you learn more about what happens, you learn how the good defeats the evil.
I can see what Poe fanatics want every one of these dark tales.

I love the SE so I also bought the CE. There's a lot of improvements in this game, from the voice overs, less HOG and more adventure. However, the hint is still not available during gameplay, except the HOG scenes. And the skip button is super slow although I played it in casual. The bonus chapter is fine, but I think it should be given more time to reveal everything. I played the bonus chapter for about 40 minutes. The rose collection is great, they didnt tell what it's for until the very end but it's fine. The SG helps a lot in finding the roses or I have to go through the scenes again one by one. Anyway, a great game. Cant wait to play Gold Bug.

I enjoyed it a little more than the first one simply because it was a longer and more challenging game. I recommend this game.

Best game I've played in a couple of years!
I love this game. My favorite is Macabre Tales: Curse of the Nightingale because of the visuals, plot and fun factor but now it's tied with this game. The plot was excellent and fairly new to me. I loved the cut scenes and voiceovers- very well made and easily understood. The mini games were very inventive and easy to understand even of the hard level. I'm personally not a fan of HO games but there weren't many in this one and the game lasted hours. Will revisit the game and play it again in future!

Throughly enjoyed this one! Lots of great puzzles and HOS. The story line was good, and the extra playing was great. Graphics were very good. The HOS were challenging.

I really enjoyed the game it had a great storyline and I enjoyed how the Detective made you part of the game. The music and visuals were great althought the HOS could have been better. I don't like having to randome click or use hints because the items are mislabeled in HOS scenes and there was plenty of that here.
The CE kept you just as busy and was enjoyable but it did not add to the story enough to make you miss anything if you had not purchased it. In fact I didn't really like the storyline enough so I was bummed I payed extra for it.
