Great SE value
Wow what a great game and with a SE price tag. Long, beautifully drawn, good story and a decent ending. The game started out a little iffy for me as it seemed to have some misques. (The father picks a rose while in a blizzard, it's raining in front of the house but not out the side.. things like that) but no matter it soon turned into an interesting mystery. I found some of the HO scenes to be qute challenging..that's good and that they were sometimes HO's and sometimes FROGS. I also liked that there were many characters/suspects and a good storyline. Lots of beautiful locations with an excellent jump map. Some intricate mini games, a ton of inventory objects and some good VO's. The hint system worked well with directional arrows if you were stuck. Good journal with an outline of current tasks. Overall I really enjoyed this one especially the graphics and some tricky inventory objects. Nice job very well done.

A unique twist to a favorite fairy tale.
What a beautiful and enchanting game. I would have liked the Beast to have been more involved in the story, but ? The voice over (especially for Bella) left A LOT to be desired. The back stabbing scandals gave a fun and unique twist to a favorite fairy tale.

Great Hidden Object Scenes
I usually prefer puzzles to hidden object scenes, but this game made me like the HO parts of the game. They were fun and challenging. They were not piles of unrelated junk, and there were several scenes that required me to use the hint button- something I rarely do. Great game over all- not perfect by any means but a whole lot of fun.
Must have if you enjoy challenging HO scenes

Really good HOG
This SE game packs in a lot for its size. It's a variation on the Beauty and the Beast story with HO scenes, some normal and some finding parts of items to assemble. Mini games are good and can be skipped in casual mode. There are a heap of locations so the fast travel map is useful, if you can figure out which location you should be at.

Fun challenging game with good variety
I didn't know what to expect from this game but I was very impressed as soon as I opened it.
It's nicely polished - has a nice menu, a great journal, an interactive map, and you can use the hint button outside of puzzles.
I played on the more difficult setting.
The game is good length with lots of depth to the locations.
I played this over a couple weeks, but it probably took 5-8 hours all together.
Someone else described very accurately in their review the amount of puzzles, etc.
I'll just say it was nice to have multiple types of HOS.
Decent music, barely ever annoyed me.
The voice acting itself was better quality than most (excluding the little boy obviously played by a man) but sometimes the sound on some characters was muffled or jarring.
It had some really nice twists to the story and some surprising sources of humour.
Oddly enough there was a scene strongly reminiscent of the film Stardust...
And one of the final scenes was obviously a homage to the Disney film, but unfortunately done with much less feeling.

It was a fun game. Graphics are good and the story is interesting. Hope they make other games like this one.

Nice game. I like it.
Put the music real low so it would not be annoying. Even though on a newer computer with a big screen the game was slightly too big for my computer and had to quit while hunting parts because they were off screen.
I know there is a way to adjust my resolution to play this game and it was quite a good game. I would buy this on a rainy day. Love the interaction with critters. I liked how some were regular HO's and other were find pieces of things.

Not the best but not the worse
Fairly twisted tales: the price of a rose
So I don?t have a lot to say about this game I found it to be quite disappointing. It was a long game but that is mostly due to all the back tracking and there is tons of it in this game and there is no way of knowing where you need to go or where you need to be. The map does allow you to travel but its not much help if you don?t know where to go next. The puzzles where good and there were two kinds of HO?s throughout the game and tons of them. The story line was good but it didn?t make up for the graphics and set up of the game. I?m sorry to say I would not recommend this game.
Good luck :)

I was very excited at the thought of another fairy tale so close to xmas...well tis the season to be jolly..lol.
After only a 45 min demo however, this one missed the mark. The graphics are good and the storyline had possibilities but I found the game far too linear, with no real challenge. HOs were standard and too abundant for me, and puzzles very easy.
All in all very much a beginners game.
