Loved it! As usual, another awesome game!! Incredible cozy scenes, amazing graphics and very good story line! March 30, 2014
Long fun game This was a great game for me, the puzzles were not to difficult (also you can adjust the skip time to fit you). Lots of places to explore - loved the animals. March 27, 2014
Play It Best game from ERS. Tricky around the circles, check forum. Loved the hidden games. March 26, 2014
Candy Really loved this game. I am a fan of all the Edgar Allen Poe games. March 26, 2014
Love Poe and his stories ERS did a good job Great game, love the colors and graphic's and I thought it was a great game. I really like ERS games. March 25, 2014
Usher Looks Fantastic .... BUT ..... I have every Poe story - and I was going to buy this one without even a test drive. I'm glad I didn't. Very early in the game - just inside the mansion - I needed to zoom in on a tree covered in ravens. The Hint said so, and the SG said so. But I couldn't. So I can't go any further. Bummer. This series is one of the very best out there. What I saw so far was great.All the bells and whistles - plus a few new ones. I really hope this gets fixed soon!!! I'm rating it 5 stars - even with the glitch - because I'm sure it's a great game. March 20, 2014
the fall of the house of usher one of the most delightful games I have played for quite a time. loved rat-a-tat made the game so much more amusing. keep up the good work bunny March 30, 2014
Another Great Game In This Series ... Enjoyable Graphics, Sounds, Voice & Video Bits ... More To Come In This Series I'm Sure, And Look Forward To It ... Wish The Bonus Games Were A Little Longer ... Worth A Deal Or Wait For The SE ... March 29, 2014
another great game. after playing the demo i knew i had to have this one too... i have the other Dark Tales and this is my new favorite.. March 20, 2014
House of Usher Is Definitely A Fixer-Upper You and Detective Dupin have been summoned by Dr. Morris to the House of Usher to investigate the disappearance of Madeleine. Madeleine and her brother Roderick are twins who share a special bond in which they experience each others painful experiences. Dr. Morris had been treating them until Madeleine disappeared. A quick check in my inventory revealed that I?ve played five previous Dark Tales games, all of them either good or very good. The strength of this series has always been the stories. So how does this one measure up? As you would expect, the House is creepy looking and contains all sorts of weird objects, doors and locks. In fact, the exterior of the house bears an eerie resemblance to the house from the movie ?Psycho.? The drawing style is consistent with the others in the Dark Tales series, with very saturated colors and a slightly grainy and flat look. Game play is characterized by variety. The hidden object play varies from scene to scene, beginning with a riddle type, then find 12 of something, and so on. Objects are mostly correct for the period. There is a match-3 option not explored by this reviewer. Mini games were not too challenging, but were well animated. Along the way, you also collect a spirit who can bring certain objects to life, and a pet mouse to get to those hard-to-reach places. Voices are not up to the usual high standards. For starters, the developers re-used the same person?s voice for at least three characters. They just tweaked it a little to try to disguise it. I found the voice of Roderick to be the weakest, and his voice did not fit the look of the character either. Options are highly customizable for whichever level you choose to play, including a switch to simply turn off the sparkles. The Collector?s Edition includes a lab that you can purchase equipment for. Coins are found by searching model buildings throughout the game using an x-ray lens. The pseudo-extras include wallpapers (6), concept art (15), screen savers (5), hidden object (17), mini games (17), and movies (14). There are also the usual achievements. Other extras are a strategy guide and bonus chapter. There are no collectible items (other than the coins). Verdict: Unless there is a sale, the SE would seem to be the better value. The game will not ?usher? in a new era in gaming, but is still worth playing. March 20, 2014
