The Dark Side of Notre Dame
As a fairly new gamer, I found the Dark Side challenging. I sometimes had to refer to the Walkthrough to figure out what I should be doing. As an editor, I found that the English language should be reviewed and improved in the Walkthrough. The HINT sometimes issues erroneous information. The music is nice but quite repetitive. But the challenge had me persist with it to see how it ends.

The Dark Side Collector's Edition
I bought this on a whim, and it turned out to be a good choice. The HOS were challenging without being imossible. Items were well hidden, but distinguishable from everything around them. Game play great! It stayed on point, always going forward. I recommend this game.

Not a fan
I was probably a bit jaded by the poor quality CG in the opening sequence, and the 20-second loop of music in the first room, but this was really not of the quality I was expecting, given the amount of advertising it received. The Hidden Object Scenes were interesting, but I ended up skipping the majority of the puzzles, simply because the hints on how to solve them were completely unclear. For example, one hint was, "Find the correct sequence." What sequence? How will I know if it's correct?
The story was also quite fragmented, so it loses a star just for that. People were talking about characters I hadn't met yet, doing deeds I didn't know about, for reasons that were unclear. Overall a disappointing title.

I wanted to like this game, but in the end, just didn't enjoy it that much. Played on advanced. Graphics were great. Voiceovers suited the story and were done reasonably well. HOS were really nice. No clutter. Detailed images. Only knock on HOS were found items were not completely marked off the list. They were just grayed out, which blended with the white open items. The storyline was pretty good until about 2/3 of the way through and I began losing interest. The biggest drawback was the difficulty of the puzzles. Unless those who have reviewed this game already are members of Mensa, these puzzles are "hard". Hint system was borderline worthless in some instances. Bonus chapter was long enough, but given my annoyance with the puzzles by that time, I just wanted to get through this and go onto something else. May try it again on the first level and see if that makes any difference. I do recommend it with reservations.

It was okay.
It was okay. No, really. I thought long and hard and it's all I could come up with... :) It was just okay. Nothing else.

For Those Who Like Puzzles
If puzzles are your thing
This game has many
and More than a few are Quite Challanging
I prefer Great Adventure Games
and this just did not do it for me
I don't like Any HO scenes to begin with
but the ones in this game were more often than not
I could not see a large number of hidden items
and found that
I had to click on dark spots
just to know if an item was there
The story did not excite me at all
Many of the mini games were challanging
and I do appreciate them
but outside of that...
I found the game a Disappointment
The extra game play was nothing special
If I had known I would have not purchased the CE

Storyline was good initially, but nothing new as far as graphics or puzzles. Didn't purchase.
