Family Tales: The Sisters
Way too short and too frustrating
The hint was useless, I hate hints that say "nothing to do here" or "I should move on", etc. No help. The puzzle directions were pretty useless as well and a lot of times I had to try the inventory item several times before it actually worked. Big surprise when it was suddenly over. Maybe forty minutes playing over two days because I only could on my lunch break.

Good for a coupon only
One of the worse I have ever encountered. Very bad story, hard to make connections as to what had to be done with what and where. No instructions as to mini games. Glad I used a coupon for this Did not finish the game, too terrible.

Had so much promise
I am so disappointed in this game. The music is horrible and so turned it off. So strange to play without. I also wished they had voice overs which really makes a game. The graphics were good and I really could see potential in this game but I would not purchase this game at any cost as it is so poorly put together Back to the drawing board on this one I DO NOT RECOMMEND

Full of Glitches
The story line is dark but interesting. Nice graphics.
Several types of HOS with a lot of interactivity.
I played on the middle level which is where I usually play these games.
Puzzles are very interesting but instructions are awful.
In the third chapter it falls apart. Pressing the hint button a second time after it recharges can point you to a different hint. There is some glitch where the game thinks I have something in my inventory which I do not have and the hint points me to the task- it is obvious what is needed and I know where it is but I don't know how to get it.
I have played other games and felt dumb after using a hint but this is different. There are also some incorrect translations in the HOS.
Summing it up unrealized potential.

Try Before You Buy :(
Family tales: the sisters
What to say about this game?.well to start it only took me about 3 hours to finish the game so it is fairly short. The graphics were very poorly done. I found no real story line to it. No voice over and you have to read fast to catch what is being said and done. To be honest the only thing I really liked bout it was the HO?s which was a nice change from the normal, in fact I found myself wanting to play the HO?s more than the game which is not like me. I much rather have a tory line and have few HO?s I normally get board of them anyways. I will say the beginning looked promising but only went downhill from there.
In summery I found this game to be way to short and very poorly done?..Not worth the money?..They blew when they made this one. I RECOMMEND TRING THE TRAIL BEFORE YOU BUY
Good Luck all!

I couldn't even finish the game I was so bored. Some of the HOS were so dark that even with my monitor at full brightness, I had trouble seeing some of the objects. The music was annoying. There really did not need to be a sound with every move (there was this annoying swooshing sound with every mouse click). I ended up turning off the sound which made the game even more boring. The storyline was unimaginative. The HOS were a mix of interactive, except the interactive objects were not in a different color, so you had to scroll all over the screen to find them. I will admit I am a little biased on HOS like this because I do not like them. I don't need an added challenge to the HOS. Some of the HOS were the type where you were given the shadow of the object to find, and again, you had to find certain objects to interact with other objects to complete the HOS. I also hate HOS like that. This game was definitely not for me.

This game is one of the worst for explaining what you are supposed to do with the puzzles. The instructions were muddled and made no sense. First time I've ever had to get guidance from the Community.

I wasted a Free Punch on this and am very sorry. There is NO MAP. If you like wandering around with the HINT button - go for it. Very frustrating for me.

This game took me 20 min to play. It is simple all over. Do not buy,
