Dark Parables: Rise of the Snow Queen Collector's Edition
Another Great Series
I have to said the second one from the Dark Parables series sort of disappointment. It is a lot easier than the first of the series the "Exile Prince" and like it better than this one.
The storyline is pretty good but not to the extend that I would call excellent. As for the visual/sound quality it's just as good as the first of the dark parables series. There is some challenge in this hidden mystery game but not hard enough for a five star. I still enjoyed this game regardless how it may disappointed me in manner of speaking.
If you just want to play this game not worry about bonus content or extras then a regular hidden version of this game will be excellent choice. Since I was some what disappointed by the main game but with the bonus content it help dissolve that disappointment a little. It worked out in the end.

The Snow Queen & Other Parables
After playing Briar Rose and the Exiled Prince I found this game a bit confusing. There was so much to collect that had nothing to do with the main game. Morphing objects that I can see no point to. I hope they do not become common in games. It has a good bonus chapter and dispite the above I did like it

What a disappointment!!!
Yes it had great artwork, the storyline was good, the level of control you can adjust the game to was nice to see.... BUT
No variety in the puzzles!! the same two throughout the WHOLE game. "connect the dots useing the required colors from one end to the other OR match the item to the picture. What happened to the wonderful variety from the previous two games from this series? This would have been such an awesome game if the developers hadnot gotten lazy about the puzzle content. Dont know if i will continue with the series, and that makes me sad.

I love playing hidden object games. Unfortunately, this one left a lot to be desired. It has great graphics, but I didnt care for the storyline and it wasn't that challenging. I prefer to play MCF.

Good Graphics but Not Challenging
This was the first CE that I purchased, at full pice, and I was disappointed.
The scenes were great. The HO was okay, but not too difficult. I would even say that this could be a beginner game because it was that easy. The sound was muted most of the time, from what I did listen to, I can't complain, it wasn't like a bad kung fu movie or anything for the voice overs so I'm happy about that.
Around the middle of the game is where it got interesting for a moment, but then it fizzles again. However, I did like that we got to choose between the mirrors, which could change the ambiance of the scenes. I also enjoyed the Bonus of this game too, it was fun switching from Snow White to Hansel and Gretel. I wonder which fairy tale will be next.
Overall I would recommend this to a beginner or someone who is looking for a some good artwork but not to someone who's looking for a challenge.

Where to Next?
Story line was okay but sometimes boring. Wasn't always sure where finds needed to be placed because they didn't always have a logical placement that was evident. Bonus game, to me, not worth collector's edition price.

I enjoyed Frog Prince more
Pro's: non-static scenery, original puzzles, not HO (instead you collect fragmented pieces of objects like in Treasure Seekers), collecting morphing objects, map. I also liked the winter scenes.
Con's: puzzles were too easy, basic graphics, not HO (it's too easy to find the fragments to collect; I didn't even have to look at the bottom to know what to collect, i just had to look for out of place items in the scene). Most annoying was the mouse cursor changes to a magnifying glass for just about everything, including if there's some comment on an object (this doesn't make sense, the magnifying glass cursor is universal with "click here to look closer".
I forced myself to play through the demo to see why I didn't like it but so many others did. It's not bad... I just don't think it has any elements that make it a GOOD game.

Not as thrilling as I wanted...
I was disappointed with this one. Didn't like the graphics, and not much into the puzzles. Also, the hidden objects are pieces of things used to create other objects, so you don't look for things, you look for parts of things. Not as fun...

Too many HOS. I got bored. The only way to get inventory was the HOS and it was not much of a challenge to figure out how to use everything.

Change It Up Please....
I have enjoy the Dark Parable games. Though this game fell short of the stander of the other two in the challenge of the puzzles, there was not a lot of variation as to what the puzzle it was either a color pattern game or what object go with that.... though there was one that was different from the other that I did very much enjoy and had the feel of the last two games,form the previous games I enjoy the different challenge the mini games offered. It look as though they are make another one I hope it is an improvement from this one...
