Grim Facade: The Cost of Jealousy
I wish that I had waited to purchase this game after I found out that ERS games are on sale.
I really enjoyed the game itself. I got the collectors edition mainly for the strategy guide.
However, when I got to the bonus game.... I found a glitch. There are two square pieces that go on a suitcase so that it will open. One has a tree and the other has a sun. Be careful, if you place these on the wrong symbols - the squares will be placed but then .... nothing. The cursor remains the viewing only not the hand to pick them up and put them in the correct place. :(
Play the game but if you mess up the bonus - you have to replay the game again to unmess up the bonus. - no reset button here :)
I recommend the collectors edition if you need the strategy guide like me. Overall the main game was a lot of fun to me. The bonus is not so much.

Great Graphics, Superficial Story
Like all the Grim Facade games, this one has beautiful graphics, varied puzzles, fun challenges. The story is weaker that some of the others.
Pros: Beautiful graphics, varied puzzles (easy to medium), challenges to earn money for clues.
Cons: The new "assistant" is annoying and useless - stating obvious things "Wow, maybe we should go in that door!". The cute little fox just disappears with no explanation, and when you get to the end there's no motivation for the characters to do what they are doing then BAM! It's over.
Overall, it was a fun game - but plays like they took 6 months on the first half, and 6 days on the second.

Good game, but . . . . .
Really good game, but what is up with that terrible ending??? I had to hit the play button again only to be told I had finished the game! Arggghh!

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME I LOVED, GRAPHIC, VOICE OVER, EVER ITEM YOU FOUND YOU USE VERY QUICK, SO THERE WAS NOT A LOT OF BACKTRACKING, WHICH I DO NOT LIKE. THEN IT WAS OVER, I DID NOT LIKE THE WAY IT ENDED, IT HAS TO CONTIUNED.

Another great game but a little short
Interesting storyline. It keeps you interested in playing because of the theme. Good variation of games. Varying scenery and many areas to explore. A little short. Not as long as needed to be.

Was very nice to play. Nice graphics. HOGS - some easy, some are hard parts. Mini games - I was not always able to play a few - so just used Skip. Did not take away my fun in playing. And sometimes I used Skip just because I didn't want to play the mini-game.
- as for audio - i don't know because I seldom if ever listen to the audio of any game. Used to try but the music/sounds became annoying......
- This game will be more fun to some and not as much fun to others but I do suggest that you check out the trial before deciding you don't want to purchase this game.

Lovely graphics and setting. Interesting storyline. Level of challenge is about medium but still fun!

Typical ERS game, great graphics, voice overs were good, collect fans for hints, really cute fox to help too. Hint button excellent depending on how many fans you collect.Not exceptionally long but as always with this developer you get your money's worth, clearly defined HOS, nice easy puzzles.The only disappointment for me was the very very abrupt ending.It left me with, What was that!!! I only hope there will be another episode.

Too short with an open end!! :(
This is meanwhile the 3rd Grim Facade: Played and loved the first two and was really looking forward to this one.
Graphics are unmistakable ERS-style - clear and detailed. Story is thrilling. Wellmade voiceovers. 3 modes to choose from. No map, but found items are used topical.
Good mixture of slightly interactive hidden object scenes and interesting minigames, quite easy.
To get additional hints, we have to collect peacock-feathers, also hidden in the HOS. And we need to find coins along our way, to buy needful items in a shop (if you take a closer look there, you'll see a picture of the shop-owners of the 2 previous games...;))
Differences to the Collector?s Edition: In addition to the usual bonus-content (wallpaper, concept art, screensaver?), the CE contains trophies and the bonus-chapter is needed to complete the whole story... (like in the last Grim Facade)!
I don?t recommend this SE, as it is far too short (2,5 hrs.) and leaves you with an open end.
