Fabled Legends: The Dark Piper Collector's Edition
No one does color, design and graphics like Blue Tea. This is a stunningly beautiful game, which allows you to lose yourself in the fantasy. I do wish that all developers would bring us games this good to look at, but for $13.99 each I also wish they would find more cheerful subjects - enough with rats, skulls and cemeteries already!

Not your average mouse tail...
I don't usually buy CE games, but the reviews sounded like I should start with this one. I wasn't disappointed in the least. The story line is a dark version of the fairy tale in which the piper brings the black death back to the city he once saved. Beautiful artwork and subtle music that adds to the feel of the story without having to adjust the volume. Mini games are easier to complete than some other games, but won't slow down the speed of the story so much that you have to review what you already did in order to move on. I think that I've found my new favorite game. One last thing, beware the red herring objects in the HO scenes and have fun

Enjoyed but some solutions VERY hard.
This was a fun game but a couple of the solutions to get something or do something were "not typical" and I would have never tried shooting a blow dart ...for example at a lamp shade. The game is divided in two main chunks and bonus game play after winning. The bonus game play did not have the same quality of graphics - but it was still a good game.

Definitely worth the CE
Long game and good length bonus game play makes it a good CE. There were plenty of places to go but I felt there were areas of the town like the shops in the main part that could have been utilized and were not.
It was slighty confusing of where to go at times, and boring at times which is weird because I thought it was a good game, maybe because the characters were a bit drab.
The graphics were good but a bit dark in some areas. Still very detailed. This should have been and excellent game but I feel it was lacking some fun in it and I can't pin point what it is. I thought it was creative, I liked the buttons on the right for the rat and crow whistle...
The puzzles were good, but not great. A bit easy and not varied enough.
Overall I think it's worth buying and I did enjoy it but it could have been more fun. I should have loved this game, what I loved was the length and bonus play.

A Classic Twist on an Age Old Tale
This game was great, Here are my thoughts:
Built-In Strategy Guide
Quick recharging hint
Horror-Movie like storyline
A new twist on an age old tale
The puzzle at the beginning. It was cute
Interactive things were hard to figure out
All the rats. What's with that?
Many of the items yo needed to complete something were found very far away from the scene
Overall, it's no surprise this game was developed by Blue Tea. It's thrilling and exciting, and I definitely reccomend it

Warning to those with a fear of rats!
Apart from all the rats, this game was fun and entertaining. Had the usual hidden object scenes, but was a good story and great visually. Also has the usual extras to look out for.
