Unique and entertaining
I didn't care for the first Dark Parables I played, Curse of Briar Rose, mainly because I don't usually like the fragmented HOS and am easily disoriented and would have liked a map or a directional hint. However, after reading the reviews for this game and learning they had changed a couple things (map and Hint) I thought I'd give it a shot. And I'm really glad I did. The story was captivating right from the onset. The graphics were quite stunning. I even found the HOS pleasant, very clear and not too difficult for this style. Another perk for me is looking for collectibles (although I missed quite a few morphing objects), which is something I normally look for in a CE and am thrilled when I find them in an SE. There could have been more puzzles and less HOS (especially toward the end) but that's my only complaint. A unique twist on a fairy tale that's completely entertaining. Terrific!

Love the Series
I've been off-site for some time, due to my computer being infected and all, but when I came back I was happy to see the next in the Dark Parables up...I'd already known it would be Red Riding Hood in some form (the Snow Queen mural on the wall hinted as such# but had no clue how they'd go about it, lol...when I started the trial, when I saw the first sister my main thought was "wow, she grew up". You get past that into the game, though, and how many differences in plot there are, much like the other Parables. This one's just kinda in your face, considering last you thought of little red riding hood she was, well, little.
Like the rest of the Parables, great graphics. I liked the voice overs, they were smooth. And the background ambience wasn't one of those "for the love of god, would you stop looping" ones, it was actually good.
I loved the surprise appearance of __ __#major spoiler if you haven't played to the end of game, lol#. Shocked me. And like all Parables, it left a major hint at what's coming next.
Overall, my favorite Parable will probably always be The Exiled Prince, so I WON'T say it's my favorite. But I like it as much as the others.

The hunters in the game seem to be a little lame, but overall it's a great game. Some sound issues, especially with the background noises, such as when the sisters are locked up. Should number the parable games because some of the prior hero/heroines appear in other games, such as Briar Rose, to ensure game players do the proper sequence.

Dark Parables: Red riding hood sisters
This game along with the others in the series is incredible.
I love this game so much that I own all but one and I'm going to buy that now.
I usually don't need the strategy guide but there is so much going on in these games it's pretty much a necessity. Love the game so much I'm going to buy them all.

Really liked the difficulty levels, I chose medium and found it challenging. The story line was good and overall kept me engaged for the entire game. I would definitely recommend this game to someone who enjoys hidden object games.

Good solid fun
I have played the other Dark Parable games and this one is as good as the others IMO.
A big plus for me are the HOS. I get bored with hidden object scenes where you are looking for objects that don't match the names and are so tiny that you squint at the screen for ages to find a match-stick that looks like a pin (you know the kind of thing. ;-).
What I love about the HOS in this game is that the pieces go to make useful objects which are a part of the story, and both the pieces and the scenes are beautifully rendered.
Okay, the challenge level is not all that, but that doesn't worry me when there is a good story, nice cut scenes and decent rendering, which this game has in abundance. I played in the normal mode and the game lasted about 8 hours, I was in no hurry, just ambling along enjoying the ride.
Any minuses? Not really. I had no problem with the "killing animals thing" because it's a fantasy game and the wolves bear no relation to reality. The map is not a "jump to" but it is useful and the travelling back to various points was quick and not annoying for me. Got no problem recommending this.

Pretty Good but Missing Wow Factor
I play hidden objects with my 4-year old, and he loved the storyline! Because my 4-year-old can't read and likes to work the controls while we play, I like when the hint uses sparkles/arrows (like this game) rather than written hints. The visual quality is good, but I prefer games with a spookier atmosphere. I loved the idea of building something useful in the hidden object puzzles, but it was mostly just random clicking of scrolly-shaped metal pieces to create things nobody would ever just innately know how to build from the pieces you're given. They could have done a much better job with that aspect. Overall the game was a bit cheesy, but decent. My kid liked it.
