Dark Parables: The Red Riding Hood Sisters
Not so fun
I didn't care for this game. Found it difficult to get much story out of it or even know what I was suppose to do or reasoning to where I should go to get clues, etc.

I thought the graphics were beautiful on this game, but other than that, wasn't particularly impressed. There were an abundance of puzzles that didn't really tie into the storyline or theme and which really didn't make much sense (why do I need a mushroom to access a necklace or a bell to get a scepter?). There didn't seem to be much logic to it, other than to throw in a bunch of puzzles. I have played much better written HOGs than this.

Toooooo Many HOS's
Every other screen, an HOS. It gets tiresome. You can't move through the adventure. Very few puzzles. Thus, the variety is missing from this game.

Could be so much better
I played the free demo and was really surprised when the story line ended before the hour was up by 10 minutes. I am also wondering why Red Ridinghood has to look like a street walker. Playing the game was a bit frustrating with all the doubling back and the graphics were stunning but the objects you were looking for were often not well defined.

This Game was Annoying
I waited for this to come out in Standard Version before I bought it...it had such good reviews...Well, I just spent a Saturday afternoon playing it and I thought it was TEDIOUS & Boring....They used a lot of Grey graphics again on the hidden object seens, and I think that is a lazy and cheap way to put in hidden objects...And the objects didn't even match the panel pictures of them in the panel....the ones in the game were "darkened" much of the time to make it harder to find the; a cheap way to not get creative...I am sorry I even paid for the Standard version...I only played this through because I paid for it....I was stupid.

So very disappointed!
My biggest issue with this game is that there was absolutely no flow or next logical step in the storyline. My son and I play a lot of HOGs. He's four and can negotiate the better ones pretty well, but this one left us both frustrated. I am finding the bonus game much more enjoyable, which is sad. With this game it's a constant 'click the hint button to see where to go next since the HO/puzzle we just completed doesn't even seem to belong to this game'. There was no fun frustration... the kind where you know you've been given everything to solve a situation and it's just not coming to you. It was more like: OK. WTH am I doing HERE???
The next game we got was another Dark Parable (Curse of Briar Rose) as it was one of those buy one get the other BF promotions. THIS GAME I REALLY ENJOYED! The HOs were the images of the items, so my son could easily solve them all on his own. It was long and difficult and easy to follow where you needed to be headed next.
Another huge plus: No big-bottomed, big-breasted, tiny-waisted, scantily clad posing chicks with too much makeup. The story was stupid and I just didn't care if the whole world got swallowed up by some diva with a grudge over something ridiculous along the lines of napkin placement at the kitchen table---and if you're any kind of multi-celled organism you figured out pretty quick who she was.

to short and easy
The objects to find were not hidden very good, my seven year old kid beat this game in a few hours.

Same HOS over and over. Extra puzzles not very challenging. The Sisters looked like left overs from teenage sci-fi drama.
