Dark Parables: Jack and the Sky Kingdom Collector's Edition
My least favorite Dark Parables
Dark Parables is my favorite series, but this one is boring. The games and hidden object scenes are repetitive, the story line uninteresting.

kind of "old school"
predictable, graphics flat, kind of lame, actually. Dark Parables has been a good series of games but the last couple have not been very good.

Should have know it was blue tea.
A lot of members love this developer. Beautiful everything. I just do not like the hidden object presented. I did however order once or twice to learn they were through game.

Disppoints this time
I love this series, and have played them all. But this game isn't mine kind of game.
Visuals are nice and there are extras, but don't know if I would burn my credits on it.

An OK game
Not as good as the previous titles.

Not for Me
I'm not sold on this one at all. The grainy graphics appear again. Many many (too many) FROGS. I am not a fan of them at all, however, I cannot dislike the game because of them, being it IS a FROG game. I just think there are an overabundance of them. Pretty music, bright (although blurred grainy) colors. Usual story line. This to me, if you take away the glitz, is a standard FROG game. Put your pieces together, move on the next FROG. Many people love the familiar aspect of this game. Fairy tale, FROG, a couple puzzles, etc. I expect more from a game. Also, as a CE, this game is very sorely lacking. This is a pass for me.

I was really disappointed by this game. The graphics is beautiful, but low resolution and the game does not support wide screen (it just stretches 4:3 picture).
Puzzles are extremly easy and repetitive. Things are just scattered around so you basically just pickup dozens of similar items and put them to sockets two rooms away. Even on hard more, the game is very easy.
Fragmented HO scenes are easy as well, most of the time you don't even have to look on list of items, you just click obvious misplaced items all over the scene and you are done.
There are no collectibles besides "cursed objects" (morphs), there are no achievements.
The story is average, typical king/queen/child girly stuff. Voice acting is above average.

I used to love this series and honestly I bought it without really trying it. My bad? I'm really disappointed and i'm going to erase the game before finishing it. I just can't go on being bored like this.
The game is crowded with way too many HOPs, which are all the same, puzzles aren't really challenging, you can't move from one place to the next from the map (!), music is nice but repetitive. Scenes are in low resolution, grainy and HOPs are as they always were: unclear.
I felt like I was back about two years ago? I had just finished Cadenza and after that, not many of those games pass the test! I may become very demanding but there are quite a few games nowadays that meet all the criteria of fun, beautiful graphics, music - and challenge!
All in all: boring, boring and boring? I don't recommend it.
