Reveries: Sisterly Love Collector's Edition
Silly and Childish
This review is based on the one hour demo, which I didn't finish because I was so bored with the storyline. Yes,the graphics are excellent, but that's about all I can say as far as what impressed me. Is it me, or does it seem that we are suddenly being inundated with fairly tales and silliness? Childlike is how I would describe it. I guess it's a personal dislike with me. I am so ready for some serious games with a good adult like feel. If you are into fairytale like games, then you will probably love it.

An Exspensive OK Game
Fun Factor: 3.5 stars
Visually stunning; voice overs done by bad actors
Challednged: used hint button and strat guide quite a bit
Storyline: good idea, but done with a lack of finesse

Not to bad!!!
Like I say often, to each is own. I will still wait, for superior games. Also the more exciting developers. I love of course Mystery Trackers. The game scent of desire just can't explain, the excellence of this one. This game, can't come close.

Sad, sad, sad.
Once I found I was expected to comb coarse grass with a hair comb I began to suspect that most of the items I was to use would not really match the job they were supposed to do and this was the case.
The visuals were good, the HOs reasonable, but not brilliant as there was some cheating there.
I found that the use of the hints and map became necessary as time went on and, in the end, I was, sadly, glad it was over.

ERS does it again.
for me, this is a 4/10 game. (4, not 0... which means i DO like some things about it!)
and, for those wondering, this is game number EIGHT this year... five months... i listed them on the third page of the "our 50th game for you" thread on this game's forum page.
so, doing the math, that's one CE every 2.708 weeks!!
how can they keep up this break-neck pace? i think we all know... many of us have said it. and we keep repeating it to no avail: same, same, same. cookie-cutter.
anyway, i keep asking for no more cute animals... i get more instead of less.
10n more! that's like... infinite numbers of animals, or so it seems to someone who wants NONE.
the graphics are so loud and busy they almost vibrate.
game mechanics are fine... no lagging cursor, no pause between scenes, jump map (never used it, but i hear it jumps) etc.
i played on the hardest mode and there were, indeed, no black bar tips, at least not by the end of the beta or demo. i like that!
but, level of difficulty? non-existent. gee, the little (cute, furry?) mole is blinking cause we all know moles don't live above ground, soooo... yup, sun glasses. that was hard!
there are some major leaps of logic.... as in the logic regarding the use of the comb the first time (outside of the HOS). it made me laugh out loud! really? a comb for THAT?
also got a chuckle out of the note from sybil (? the witch)... a mean, threatening note... signed "sincerely, sybil" like one would sign a formal letter! LOL!
a singing main character? well, the witch did a sing-song-y "you'll never find your sister!" or whatever she "sang"... didn't get any further to see whether anyone else "sang".
rhyming dwarf? meh. doggerel.
the "puzzle"? a maze... i think i solved it in six clicks. not my concept of a puzzle.
the silly walnuts to collect... hidden in plain sight?
and the silly achievements that are SO easy to achieve...
bottom line? this is a kids' game. bright and shiny to keep their attention... evil witch... handsome prince, cute animals, talking trees.
i'm still waiting for an ADULT game... maybe even an adventure game (my preferred genre, but most adventures are HOPAs, so i have to settle) with difficult puzzles... that are, indeed, PUZZLES. my wallet stays shut until then. completely shut... no CEs, no SEs. quality, please... not quantity!
ERS, you've done it before... a year ago! why not again?
shall i say "dark alleys: penumbra motel" ONE MORE TIME? sure, maybe SOMEONE at ERS will listen.

Not for adult gamers ... was falling asleep halfway through the trial
I had high hopes for this game but I was wrong ... IMHO It would be fine for a younger player but I found it lackluster and too childish. The artwork was grainy and too cutesy, reminding me of a children's library storybook. The storyline itself has potential but the execution is like a painful session of Saturday morning cartoons. Collecting little golden nuts in a case as "fortune cookies" was just a tad ridiculous. The voice-overs in the cut scenes were horrible acting. The rendering of the girls in the story look as if they should be in their early 20s but the characters behave and sound like young teens. Overall it just irritated me more than intrigued me. But if you have little girls (say under 12) who like this type of game then I think they'll enjoy it immensely.

THIS? is a 50th game special?
So not what I was expecting for a 50th game. It is boring. Seems to be made for kids not adults. What has happened to ERS games? Downhill all the way.

Pathetic Story ...
My goodness, what a terrible waste of a money! I should have trailed this before I bought it but then who would have thought the Story line would be so bad? A lot of running around doing pointless tasks ... gave up after one hour and uninstalled it. Terrible!

Not for me.
Found it childish, illogical, boring, graphics the old style cartoonish kind. Won't buy the SE either.
