first Dark Tales I have played
This is the first Dark Tales I have played and for the most part I enjoyed it. Of course it's a great story but I didn't think gameplay was much different than several other games. There is no map or Hint besides the HOS but the travelling wasn't that bad. Everything tends to flow forward. Some of the puzzles were a challenge but most were moderately difficult. Really I had no complaints until approaching the end. First there was several misnamed items in the HOS and way too many of them jammed into the last quarter of the game or so. I found myself losing interest and was glad when it concluded. Others seem to really like these games and think it's definitely worth trying. I'm sure this is only the first I will play of the series.

A good game for the most part
This is a fun HO game with an engaging story and puzzles. For the most part, it looks great. If you like the demo, you'll most likely enjoy the whole thing.
A few things hold it back from five stars...
Voiceovers were great for some characters, but for others... no.
While the visuals are mostly great, during the moments when a character was talking to the player, the animation just didn't look good.
Names of a few objects in the HO scenes had apparently been mistranslated.
Personally I find it really irritating when a game won't let me progress without finding a particular puzzle item when I have, or can see, identically useful items. In this game, I had to hunt quite a while for a pack of matches to light a bunsen burner... in a room full of candles!
Some odd writing choices, too-- the player is a detective who's meant to be trying to discover whether a woman has been buried alive, but at one point he won't climb a tree without a ladder because it will mess up his clothes? Sort of detracts from the urgency.
Even with all these caveats, I had fun playing the game. It looked great, I liked the HO scenes, and the puzzles kept me involved.
After a while, I started skipping the dialogue scenes, and I was happier then. All in all, a good game.

This game is now my favorite among all ERS games. The story is easy to follow yet flows very nicely. It's simple yet creepy. I love the music, the voice overs, the graphic. Everything in this game is top notch for me. The very last scene, is what I was hoping for, so it's perfect. Well done!
