Dark Tales:Edgar Allen Poe This is to cover AL of this great series as many of us hav read the books & the games have ALL been top class & popular with us die hard HOG players,the storylines have been No1 & very well done,my only down comment is that like most games now a lot of needless going back & forth for one item to go back where you were to use it,this is obviously done to make game appear longer but with this series NOT needed,the game itself is enough & as I usually buy CE version the length is great without this needless part to it so hope in future this will be made more practical,nice creepy games Kudos to developers November 14, 2011
ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO THIS SERIES I have to admit that this is one of the series of games that I always look forward to. The Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe series of games never disappoint (frustrate sometimes) and lends itself to engaging you, the player, as an actual assistant rather than a bystander. The graphics, storyline, voice overs, interaction and inventory items are logical and instructive -- making the game play and thinking less stressful as to what do I do (or where do I go) next. If a game player reads and listens to the dialogues and points of comments, the need of using the walkthrough (for me) becomes less frustrating and less necessary; I found that if I followed my intuition, I was able to go alot further playing this game rather than having to frequently refer to the walkthrough than I would in playing other hidden object/adventure games.

Great Hidden Object Game Nice storyline, scenery and music. Very challenging - requires a lot of thinking. There are many areas to explore, codes to crack and lots of mini-games. It's a very long game and keeps you busy trying to solve the crimes. The HO's are mixed with one and two-step selections. This is a very nice, well thought out game. The graphics are very good. The ending is very good. Enjoyed this game a lot. August 21, 2012
Classic Love Story Aww, this is so lovely. A classic tale of good and evil, and of course you are on the good side with Detective Dupin. He even includes you in his conversation by turning towards you. The graphics are great. Quite a long game, and I must admit I had to view the blog a couple of times. Not too much jumping here there and every where, the story flows very well. December 5, 2011
Kept me up past bedtime I started playing this game last night intending to stop halfway and go to bed, but there was always one more task to do, one more puzzle to solve, one more HOG... and I ended up finishing the whole game. This is a testament to how well the game is structured (a trait of all ERS games); you always have something to do (use inventory item, solve a puzzle or hidden object scene) that doesn't require much backtracking and you open up locations at a good pace. The music is good, and I liked the art (although it was a little washed out), however it's very much like the music and art in previous games by ERS. I really enjoyed the puzzles. There was a good variety of them and they were more difficult than average for a HOG. I took some time to some of them, but I was never stumped or frustrated. August 22, 2012
Excellent hidden object game Have paused this game to give this review - excellent hidden object game (and i play a lot of them) love the storyline, love the graphics, game not too hard, great five stars November 28, 2011
dark tales:premature burial I'm new to Mac games and I'm so excited by all the fantastic games on offer. I was playing BF games on my iPad but the games are not half as good as they are for Mac and this is the first game I've tried and i must say "fantastic"!! brilliant storyline,brilliant graphics! look forward to playing some fantastic games soon January 27, 2012
Great Game! I really - visually - enjoy ERS games. They are visually beautiful to look at. One feels like they are in an old, very artist painting and the game play and challenges are just right. Challenging enough to say that the people who create these games are great thinkers and keep us gamers on our toes. The story line was very good and easy to follow and the music fit the ambience...old world European. The HOG are very good with the flair they use for drawing. Again one feels like they are in an old world painting and not a computer generated game. The length of this game definitely makes this game worth buying along with all the above things I mentioned. January 13, 2012
Great game well worth purchasing Loved this one. Great story and challenges. My only grumble was delay loading time between certain scenes or games but hardly anything major to grumble about! the hidden objects are not too dificult but that makes the game play flow well and the adventure aspect makes a lot more sense than other IHOG games I have played. I loved the others in this series and this one did not disappoint (unlike the new ravenhearst). December 4, 2011
Another win with Detective Dupin Plus = Another interesting story line, with a slight twist, featuring one of my favorite detectives. I have enjoyed the two other games in this series, so was pleased to have a new game to play, and I hope this series continues. From the opening cutscene to the last scene of the game, the graphics were stunning, with bright colors and crisp detail. I like Hidden Object scenes, and found the HO scenes to have just the right amount of challenge, with great interactive things to do to finish the scene. I also liked having to find all the flowers to make a bouquet, and I was pleased with the ending. Minus = The only minus for me was that I wished the game was slightly longer (but I did not want to pay the CE price for a bonus chapter, so that is my own problem!) November 27, 2011
