Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's The Gold Bug Collector's Edition 3.8 5 112 112
Good, but short for a CE Based on the Poe story "The Gold Bug". Inspector Dupin helps search for Captain Kidd's treasure, and finds plenty of trouble along the way. Excellent speaking characters Beautiful graphics HOS standard with interaction and fragmented Puzzles good, short skip button Puzzles also in HOS Nice music Lovely Newfoundland helper Bonus chapter gives a little special ending, tho not needed for main story Time: 4 for main game, one hour for bonus, total 5, casual play January 20, 2013
Attractive game but a shame about the puzzles Based on the completed game in "True Detective " mode, I would class this as an enjoyable yarn with excellent graphics and apt sound track but it is let down by the simplistic puzzles. The HOS are varied and require quite a bit of interaction of different elements. Altogether a worthwhile CE but not for the keen puzzle solver. January 15, 2013
Fun and not supernatural I was delighted to play a game with such beautiful graphics and music that wasn't supernatural for a change. Only reasons it is a 4 star instead of 5 is that the puzzles, while some of them were different from the run of the mill, were a bit too easy and the game was way too short. It's annoying how much shorter the games have gotten since they introduced the collectors edition. With the bonus chapter this was about the length that a standard edition used to be - maybe even a little shorter. Other than that it was a great game. I hope more like this keep coming!

Well well I like this game line but have never bought them because they freeze up my computer. This one did a bit also, but for the first time ran smoother then previous trial runs of their other games. I think the puzzles were great. Was not real crazy for their search and find HO's, but the rest was busy and characters were great. Love the animal interaction. The music was good too. Not famous but good. If I ever own a higher grade computer I would buy this game as well as those before. January 10, 2013
Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe' The Gold Bug CE I have liked all the Dark Tales Games so far and I bought them all, this one is good, although a little easy to play in some parts and a little confusing in others, good voice overs, and nice clear scenes. I liked it. I wasn't quite sure how I was supposed to find some of the items as you have to find them in a certain order it seems before you can pick them up. If you click on them before that order you cannot pick them up and assume you are wrong, but try again as you can get them after all, but overall a nice game January 10, 2013
Good Addition to the Dark Tales! Review is based on the Beta trial version and this demo. Visual is colourful and good graphics, not great but good. Nice additional with the Newfoundland sniffing out clues and seems to be more mini-games than HOS's. Mini-games up to now very easy to do (may get harder as the game progresses). Sychronised voices and characters well done. Like this series so will be purchasing. January 10, 2013
Good story line I just did the trial version but I really did like it. I generally start in the casual mode as this is an easier way to evaluate the game. I think even the most experience gamer would like it. It seems to run the same gambit as the story. objects are hidden but not too hard to find. January 10, 2013
DON?T GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR I LOVE the Edgar Allan Poe's games collection! I am sorry to I was not very pleased with ?The Gold Bug Collector's Edition?. I completed the collector?s edition in about 2.5 hours, with taking breaks in between. Maybe I?m expecting too much but a CE should last longer than that. The story line is good and the graphics are beautiful! I would have enjoyed a bit more dialog in the game and the ending is so ? short, confusing, unidentifiable, etc. I do recommend the game, just not at the CE price. February 26, 2013
Great Game It is a challenge keep you looking. I like the puzzle in between the different scenes great game. February 6, 2013
Wunderful BUT too short What a dissapointment! This is the shortest CE I've ever played and payed for. But it was fun. Do not pay for the CE! January 26, 2013
