Fierce Tales: The Dog's Heart Collector's Edition
Wished I had purchased SE Instead
This is just an okay game
I did enjoy the visuals and atmosphere
Story was not bad but nothing great either
Game play was adventure type
Mini games were nothing special
Bonus game was nothing special either
I would recommend getting SE with a free credit
or on sale
and pass on the CE

seems like a first attempt
The game itself wasn't too bad although some of the drawing was medium at best. It does have a map but you can't jump between places and no hints in the map on where interests are. I found I had to refer to the strategy guide quite a few time to figure out where to go next and sometimes it was several areas back to a place I had already completed and wouldn't have had any idea I needed to go there again because the HO scene was back. Some of the minigames were too fussy for me in that you had to click EXACTLY in that very specific spot and I did skip a few which I normally try not to do. I don't even bother anymore with the ones where you basically guess a random order of items that have no hint or reason to the order. It is fairly nice in that there's no major gore or scare although the bad guy is creepy but don't assume just because of the dog theme that it is fine for all ages. I'm recommending the game with caution because there's nothing really bad about it but nothing really great either.

FIERCE TALES:THE DOG`S HEART COLLECRORS EDITION
THE ONLY THING I DID NOT LIKE ABOUT THIS GAME WAS THERE WERE TOO MANY HOS.

Grrrrrrr not the dog, me
I am a very avid HOG player. This is the first game that I HAD to stop playing more than three times due to an extremely annoying phrase that is used every and I MEAN every time you click on something that you know must lead to something else. "Something can be used here" OMG I couldn't take it anymore and have now stopped playing yet another time. I usually play for hours (if a game is good enough to take that long) this game No Way. Otherwise it was a good game, just can't get part that phrase. Bet I have a nightmare about it!!! Anyone feel the same?

Wish it was better, doggone it!
Just finished the demo & because the game involves dogs, i'm wishing i loved it, but so far i'm only hoping to love it later. The story begins in a town full of dog lovers who are in a quandary over a pack of canine type beings that have been attacking, stalking, killing, & even puppy-napping, for reasons we must learn. It isn't presenting as gory or Dark & Eerie; more of a mystery adventure so far. The intro involves a human & said canine types that are cartoony, and not even good cartoony. Thankfully, upon entering the game the graphics were pretty nice, even tho characters appear to remain on the primordial edge of game graphics, giving it a dated look. I haven't noticed much as far as atmospheric sound fx, & music isn't intrusive. The HOscenes are minimally interactive & not difficult. I've only caught a couple of puzzles thus far, easy also. Typical 3 modes of play, hint, journal, & a map that takes you there. Haven't had to check out the SG yet, as gameplay hasn't been tough so far. I'm intrigued to know what these "dog like creatures" are & how they are being manipulated to do their dastardly deeds. But, tho' it seems like it probably provides some decent entertainment, Fierce Tales is coming across as too average compared to some of the amazing games that have come around lately, so i'm passing on the CE, & will check out reviews by folks who finish the game. Then maybe the SE.

Very simplistic game
I didn't think it was challenging at all and the graphics weren't that great either. Weak storyline and easy puzzles.

This is a cute game with a cute little plot. However, for Expert level the game is far too , even on Hardcore level. The game is fun to play though. For Easy levels I would recommend!

Mayzy's Reviews - Fierce Tales: The Dog's Heart Collector's Edition
I can't remember why I bought the CE version of this game. I don't normally. I'll start right off by saying that I stuck around and played this game through to the end, but was not engaged enough to actually play the bonus material. I think that sort of sums up the game in general: decent, but just not something worth writing home about.
I'm a big dog lover, which is what initially attracted me to the game. The dog bits were excellent. Why don't more HOGs take advantage of dogs? Alas.
What really turned me off was the characters. The scenery itself was beautiful but the characters had that look of being creepy Barbie dolls that so many games succumb to when trying to put 3D people on a 2D background. They were so incongruous that they just jolted me right out of the game ambiance. Oddly, though, the 3D dogs were pretty well done!
The game WAS fun and worth a look if you've got a discount, but I personally would not get the CE addition, were I to do it again.

I love dogs and was drawn to this game because of the dogs. They were, overall, a disappointment. The puppy at the beginning was cute, but the rest were just okay. The graphics were fine, the characters were a bit out-dated but acceptable. I muted the music early on because it was beginning to annoy me. The SG was good, very detailed, and came in very handy. The map was so-so. It allowed you to jump back and forth between locations, but didn't tell you if there were still items to be collected/puzzles to be solved.
The bonus chapter was, in some ways, more fun than the main game. The main game started out strong, but lost steam as it rolled along. The storyline was okay, but parts of it were just odd. There was a lot of back-and-forth between locations, which got old after awhile.
I recommend you try the demo first or wait until a BOGO sale and make this your "get one" game.

It was really just okay
The graphics were fine, the storyline was weak, the hidden object games were fun and some of the puzzles were challenging. Overall, I have played much better games than this. I couldn't make myself finish the extra chapter. This was really just an OK game.
