Dark Parables: The Red Riding Hood Sisters
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.

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.

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.

Tedious, frustrating, and non-challenging
I bought this game because of many favorable reviews but while I generally agree with other reviewers and at times even exceed their reviews, this one left me completely cold.
Overall, DP-tRRHS is a tedious frustrating game, one that I literally gutted my way through only because I have never not finished a game. Sometimes a game gets better the longer you play it but this wasn?t one of those times. It consists of only 3-part HOPTPs (hidden object put together puzzles) that were a far cry from challenging. While I do enjoy such games to a degree, this wasn?t one of them. I enjoy a little more challenge and variety in the games I play. At times, there were multiple distractions in the scenes that showed activity as part of the story but it was difficult to know if a game action was called for. Many of the clues were cryptic in nature and some to the point of not making a great deal of sense. I rarely use hints but had to a couple of times with this game as it seemed to lose a sense of direction and some of the moves needed were confusing at best.
Characters were childish as was the story and the dialog. Some of the scenes had subtle activities that could only be picked up by a careful and intensive search of the scene. There was a reasonable amount of scene interaction across the breadth of scenes. The graphics and sound were of grainy quality, and the map is of some assistance although it doesn?t have transportation capability. There were only a few types of other puzzles presented, they were used multiple times, and the level of difficulty was only slightly above easy. In addition, the story, although understandable, was somewhat of a jumble at times. Some of the interactive 'story vignettes' were more of a nuisance than story embellishment. Further, the number of scenes and the length of the game was somewhere between short and average while the number of actions per scene ranged from 1-5 with an average of 3. Normally, I would expect more scenes and more actions per scene than DP-tRRHS presented. Overall, a below average game that I recommend only because I am sure there are those who like this type of game but it wasn't the type of game I enjoy. While it wasn?t the worst game I have played, it wasn?t far from it.

Do not purchase
Poor story line. Too much confusion on task to complete and too much back and forth to different places.
