Grim Facade: The Cost of Jealousy
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.

Top Ten Worst Endings
This is definitely up there in the worst endings list. Needed some morphing objects or something. The SE version was really stripped down but I wasn't too interested in the extras the CE had to offer. Decent game, but too short, and needed a better ending.

The game was great with one exception, it was too short. I played in expert mode and was done in a couple hours. come on! (2013)

not as good as the others
I bought this game, but wish I bought the CE version. This game was ok but, I thought it was not as good as the other series games somehow. The visuals were more grainy and the game was less involved than the others. I love collecting the fans and the HO but something was missing in this game. I also hated the abrupt ending. That was a big downer.

I am an avid reader of reviews before purchasing a game but normally never write them. I have just finished the game and enjoyed the storyline, hidden object scenes and puzzles. A little simple but enjoyable nonetheless. I am so disappointed in the ending however. I felt the story was over before it had really reached the climax and thought I had at least another half hour to go. Very disappointing.

really too easy
Nice graphics, fun music but really easy puzzle and HOG, no challenge for the adulte player use to that kind of game

Grim Facade not so great
I thought the game play was just OK and the graphics looked like an old game. Fuzzy in a lot of scenes.
Would not recommend.

Game pretty well follows the pattern in the two previous episodes. The ending however is abrupt and leaves the player hanging.
