Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's The Masque of the Red Death Collector's Edition
I was so so into the game, when time ran out. I wanted to purchase at once, sorry to say budget you know. But it will be first, on my list when possible. I loved what I played so far. Can't wait to purchase. Thanks Big Fish.

Yipee!! Another Dark Tale!!
To have another Dupin mystery to solve so soon after the last one is great. These are not the most difficult games but they are fun and interesting. The hidden object games are inter-active with little things to do or find inside the games. You even get to bake some bread!! There are many things in the scenes that need to be found so look all over. You are able to pick up little animal helpers along the way to do a few chores for you which is fun. The story line is good and the sounds is good. The game is drawn in the usual way where everything is slightly fuzzy but at the same time it is easy to see all the objects. There is a lot to remember about where to go and where you have been. The map is interactive and the help button is good. There are some new added twists to the game like "Scales of Justice" and photos to take and look at and other little things to help you find the guilty person. It makes the bottom of your screen a little crowded and takes awhile to figure out what you really want to use and look at on a regular basis. I always enjoy these games and they are great to play over and over as you will find things you did not see before. Enjoy!!

great hidden object game
I have loved all the Edgar Allen poe hidden object games, but this storyline wasn't as good as some of the others, still a great game though

Just like Premature Bride
The Collector's Edition Bonus Chapter takes this adventure to the max.
It mirrors Premature, and thus gets the highest score!

I love this series
The Dark Tales series is my favourite hidden object series so far. I live the story, the graphics and the challenge level was great.

VERY GOOD INDEED!!
I love and played all dark tales games and must say this one also didn't dissapoint me! It has very good puzzles, good storyline and most of all worths every penny for the CE. The bonus game is long enough and has good puzzles as well. You should buy and play this game!

Best in the series!!!!
Love it!!! This is so much better than the other in the Dark Tales series. Much more interactive and not just a simple hidden object/mystery game. The hidden object scenes are actually interactive. For example, in one game, to find a series of paintings, you'll have to find one, which in turn will need to interact with another to continue on. Plus, you have a cute side game where you find objects for your interactive kitten to play with, who is in your office. Feel like taking a break, go back in the office an pet the kitten. :)

The Best In The Series
Thank you SO SO much for the Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe series! I have been a fan of Poe since I was a child, and I've passed that love on to my daughter. We've collected all the games so far, so I downloaded The Masque of the Red Death as soon as I saw it available.
This latest in the Edgar Allan Poe series is the best yet! I love the scales of justice - so awesome! And I absolutely love the trophy/achievements room! You get to take photos of all the scenes for a scrapbook AND you get achievement certificates and awards for all the previous Dark Tales: EA Poe games you've completed! I don't know if this is exclusive to the CE version. I'm playing the trial version of the CE right now, and I'm on my way to buy it!
I already can't wait for the next one! Please pass my gratitude on to the developers because they have done a great job!

Who is the Villian???
Another Edgar Allan Poe Story. Yay !!! I love all of his books and have enjoyed every game in this series. We have Dupin :) And a pet cat also, for whom we are able to collect items. There are achievements, a transportable map, journal, a camera to use whenever you like. Being an ERS game, its format is very similar to their other games ( cookie cutter games ). However, I cannot pass on Poe !!! The hidden object scenes are good, interactive. The inventory bar at the bottom is crowded for some reason. I do not like that. I personally thought the Gold Bug was better, however, this is a great game. Enjoy :)))
