Grim Tales: The Wishes Collector's Edition
I was looking forward to playing this game based on other Elephant Games offerings. I was very disappointed. The story is one of the hokiest I've run across, very bad. The production is poor to say the least, with bad VO, bad characterizations and mediocre artwork. The HOS are clear, but the objects needed are disguised - white on white, etc. The map is very good, and the in-game hints are good. That only makes playing this game go from pure torture to semi-bearable pain.

YAWN - what a bore
I bought and played the CE. Was a terrible disappointment.
I found the story line herky jerky and as a whole the game did not flow for me.
If you're going to purchase it, I would recommend waiting until it comes on the $2.99 special.
Prolly the best part of the game was the hint system. They did that part well.

sorry, loved the other grim tales but this one I found tedious as constant back and forth and back and forth. The puppet had a very annoying voice. some of the puzzles were good and new (to me) graphics were very static and in my view rather poor. Seemed to me as if this was a completely new dev to the other grim tales. rather regret buying.

This game is a must for people who do not know what a door is or a fireplace. When your cursor passes over these items, the word "door" or "fireplace" or "window" pops up.
Great for little kids. Need something to put you to sleep? This is the game.
Can't figure out how anyone can give it 5 stars.
Plus, it's blurry

Slow Video Was Too Much
I'm sure I would have loved this game if it hadn't been bogged down in a way that made the speed AWFUL. And before anyone says it's a hardware/software problem, the Grim Tales Bride game did NOT have the same issue. It's too bad I couldn't even get beyond ten minutes of the demo. I probably would have ended up buying this game.

I really don't like it when the cursor has to tell me what everything is... "Fireplace", "Lawn", "Doll".... That alone made me quit after 5 minutes. I don't care how good the story is, or the challenge of the puzzles, if a game is just going to irritate me with labeling everything, acting as if I'm just learning the language...
