Fairly Twisted Tales: The Price Of A Rose
Really bad game!
This has got to be right up there near the top of the worst games ever list. The story is just plain awful, and, unbelievably, the way the story is told is even worse. Horrible VOs. Lame characters and chatter. I almost couldn't stand to play this thing because of that.
Game play is marginally OK, with lots and lots of back and forth. The HOS include some fragmented objects that I hate - they weren't in the demo. There is an IA map, and the HINT button works well during game play.
I guess if you're an little girl or you wish you were, you might like this game. Otherwise, I don't think so.

Not my cuppa.
Didn't grab me. The music was quite nice, the voiceovers decent, but that's about it.
First of all, I couldn't get rid of the painfully slow custom cursor. And the cutscenes started and abruptly quit, leaving gaping holes in the story, which the journal didn't fill in. It's also VERY linear, and you find inventory and use it. The HOS were really hard to see, and while not junkpiley, they were overdone. Minigames easy - very easy.
The scenes were pretty static, the artwork very basic. And I didn't get sucked into the characters' realm at all. Not any challenge, just a mediocre, old-looking HOG with a few minigames.

I found this game boring, slow, no challenge. Leave it on the shelf. I couldn't wait to finish it. I will never buy another game without a test trai. Changing from one screen to another is extremely slow.

This game is so boring and much to read in the story. The graphic's are uninteresting and sounds are boring too. I regret purchasing it.

Please, save the money
I own many games and have never written a review, but I had to for this one because it is the WORST! I had to keep changing the screen options so I could find the items in the hidden pictures and the story dragged on and on. I honestly couldn't wait for the end to come.
