Grim Tales: The Stone Queen Collector's Edition
I found this game fun and entertaining, the story line was good, the ending to the game was good but the ending the to bonus game was lacking in that it didn't show the whole family reunited. It just stopped, leaving the princess out. It needed to be complete. The colors, the graphics the game itself was great. I look forward to their next release.

Fun game but not the best
Loved the story, puzzles and areas were fun to explore but too much back tracking. There was a map which I continued to forget about so I don't know if you could use it to jump to each location which would have made the game a lot more fun.
Graphics were good, creative characters and scenery. I definitely recommend the game but as a SE more than CE because the bonus game was not worth it - too short!

Good graphics, good storyline, lots to do. Puzzles were challenging although HOs were pretty standard. The only thing I didn't like was the backtracking, there is a lot of it! You do have an interactive map which is fab but kept forgetting what to do where which was mildy irritating so resorted to the hint button which I wouldn't do normally.
I am not sure why but this game (as others have said) is not as good as the others in the series, still enjoyable though.

A must buy!
I knew after about 10 min that this was a buy for me! Granted, the graphics aren't top of the line, but I like the story and it's challenging without being frustrating. I'll do a more indepth review when I finish. I've given it 4 stars for now just because I have not completed the game.

all over the place
I found this game to be a very weird mix of just about everything. First the graphics and locations were breathtaking. tons of color and really beautifully drawn. But the story was quite disjointed and often made little sense. There was everything imaginable.. a stone queen and harmony queen, dragaons, gollums, live people, stone people, elves, monkeys, three headed dogs, a pheonix and on and on. At one point one of the humans decides to help me and jumps up to do some welding to repair a pipe. It took a few minutes to realize that he was never going to stop. hmmm. If this had had just a bit more fluidity it could have been great. Also for me I don't buy CE's for one extra after thought chapter. I buy them for more game play which this developer usually includes. But this one had none of it. No morphing, no collectibles, no acievements. Disappointing. I will prescreen form now on to decide whether to buy the SE instead. overall this game was good not great, beautiful but it seems like they threw the kitchen sink at it. If you like the extra chapter it's probably worth the CE. If you like game play buy the SE.

Grim Tales: The Stone Queen
Just played the demo so far. I think it will be a good game. Not a spooky game. Puzzles decent so far.

A better one than "The Wishes"
Compared to Grim Tales The Wishes, this game has a better theme and somewhat clearer gameplay. Hints recharge more quickly and it's not difficult to figure out you next task. The graphics are pretty much the same though. You also have to travel frequently at time from level to level. Overall, this is a fine game.
