Fairly Twisted Tales: The Price Of A Rose
ANOTHER FRUSTRATING EXPERIENCE
When I first started playing this game, I was really liking it and was thinking it would get a high rating from me. But it turned into a game that sent me from place to place and back again until I had no idea what to do next or where to go. I had to use the hint button because the strategy guide was not built-in, requiring me to exit the game every time I got stuck on what to do next. I hate games like these and I think the developers of these kind of games do this just to make the game longer,
This game had an interactive map, which really impressed me since it isn't a collector's edition. But the map was not much help because I couldn't figure out where the next logical place for action would be. Thankfully, the hint button was good at sending me to the right place, but it took forever to move around the game that way. At the end, I was so frustrated that I just wanted the game to be over.
It is too bad that this game went down hill from its first promising play. I liked the storyline a lot, as it was sort of a Beauty and the Beast story with a prequel. But even this wasn't enough to make me rate this game any higher.

Gets irritating at the end.
Good storyline with nice settings. The only problem is that a by the end you are trying to find HO secenes in rooms that you already visitited,with no idea which ones It is bad enough to backtraci when you have some idea of where to go, and another, looking over scene over scene. Specially at the end when we are told that time of the essence, you are scratching your head ;where can I find a tree? where can I find soil? Since thre are too many palces to pick. Makes more sense to acquire these at the outset and carry them for "later".
This makes the transporation map a bit useless....
Still, a nice take on Beauty and the Beast.. with a nice backtory as to why the Beast was curse.

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.

Befuddled and the Beast
Beautiful Game to look at, but a nonsensical storyline and a lot of jumping from place to place made is less than enjoyable for me.
Pros: Beautiful music, look, background. Puzzle challenge: low to medium. Long lasting game.
Cons: Another story merged into the traditional B&theB story makes it very hard to know what everyone is talking about. Plus - the story is strung out over the entire game so half the time you really aren't sure which of the stories you're following.
There is a lot of jumping around - go to the castle for one thing, go to the town for another, carry stuff forever, and the use it in a completely different place.
Non-intuitive stuff. There is no clear path through this game so there are a lot of times when you need to use hint just to figure out what in the room you need to do. Also a problem, the instructions on the minigames aren't very clear so you have to kinda guess how the games are played.
Overall, looks like they tried too hard. Next time a clean simply story would help everything along.

OMG: Click, click, back and forth
I don't usually review a much reviewed game but felt compelled. Loved the first half then monotonous clicking back and forth to pick up an item that you have no idea where to use it. Yes, the map is interactive but, if you don't know where to go, not of much use. Sorry developers, but, I think, you just extended game time with the need to go all the way to the beginning to find a shovel and then all the way through to find where to use it.

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.

This was ok. I got bored within the first five minutes, though, and the transitions between environments took a while, which definitely contributed to the loss of interest.

Storyline has been told and re-told...Visual's are flat---way too much "talking"...HO's and mini-games are fairly easy--not much to them...Good game for novice ..

I was really excited when I saw this game but after playing for about 10 minutes felt it was really boring. It was very slow when moving from location to location - more a children's game - would not recommend buying this one.
