Dark Parables: Ballad of Rapunzel Collector's Edition 4.3 5 107 107
too much of everything My first review was rejected. Not sure why, but the guidelines state we are to say what we dislike/like about the game and that's what was done. I stated that there was too much color, too much reading and scenes that were so busy, we didn't know what to do. Maybe because I mentioned that the cursor was too big/too small it was considered a technical issue. Anyway, we own all the other Dark Parable games. They are fantastic. This one, not so much. This won't be a purchase, even with the half price special. June 29, 2014
First disappointment from Blue Tea First let me say that I have purchased and played all the Parables games except Briar Rose which constantly crashed after a certain point and enjoyed them all. Also I am not a huge fan of HO games. A few are fine but they become boring to me if there are too many. This review is based on the trial. I was happy to see a new Parables game and although I planned to purchase it I thought I would just try a little to see what it was like. After about 30 minutes what seemed like the millionth ho game came up and I just sighed and exited. After reading some great reviews (and not so great) I decided to try again. There were not as many ho games in the next part so it was better but....yes, the graphics are fuzzy and the scenes are all way too crowded and not well organized and frequently it is difficult to see what some things really are until you click on them. I think there are 90 minutes of play and I have yet to finish 60. Usually I run right through the first hour of a game I like.I won't finish the trial. All in all I think most people will be ok with this game but I did find it a little boring and did not enjoy it like I did the earlier ones. June 28, 2014
Not my cup of tea I was surprised to see the high rating of this game since I base many of my purchases on user ratings and am rarely disappointed. I tend to prefer games that are graphically similar to real life and objects are placed realistically. This is a pure fantasy setup that uses visually interchangeable medallions, statues, awards, emblems etc and only a few identifiable items out of your inventory. The graphics are the typical hazy/ill-defined smoky look of fantasy HOGS. I generally like the Dark Parables but this one was too boring and frankly un-fun. June 29, 2014
Too boring for me I played for 45 min, but found the game a tad boring for my taste. In addition, I'm not a fan of the fairy-like graphics. Not buy for me. June 26, 2014
Dark Parables: Ballad of Rapunzel Great game for little kids. Another fairytale. I like to escape but not back to the crib. 3 stars just because it's pretty. July 4, 2014
I thought this was going to be great Ok not a great lover of fairy tale games. I did buy The Frog Prince from Blue Tea which I thought was excellent. Recently have bought none of them because frankly they are not up to the first ones that came out. The graphics in this one were grainy. When I read the review about the scenes being too busy I really thought that was a poor criticism but sorry I agree. They were so busy you could not see what you were doing or where you were going. This will be a winner because so many gamers love fairy tales whatever the story line or presentation. Me I have not even bothered to finish the demo I am so bored. June 28, 2014
This Ballad is NOT Top Ten Oh My this is one of the most BORING games I have ever played! Story dragged along until my eyes started to glaze over. Art work is dreadful, over colored & muddled. There is just too much going on. HO's are interactive & VERY messy. I had a difficult time trying to sort things out. Nothing special about the mini-games. After 30 minutes I just couldn't stand it any longer & had to exit. Sorry devs it's just NOT my Cup Of Tea! June 26, 2014
Not a long enough game! I have quite a few of the dark parable games, which I really liked but this one was really short! I beat the whole game in about an hour! I am so disappointed with this game and wish I never wasted my money on it! July 3, 2014
Rapunzel, meet Rip Van Winkle Plot: Rapunzel sings, "ahhhhhhhhh, ahhhhhhhh, ahhhhhh." Monster plants sprout up. A bratty sounding Gerda keeps getting caught and you have to rescue her. Drawing style: colors, colors,lots of saturated colors including the *always popular*? pink and purple. Voices: average to below average. Game play: very very, easy, little or no challenge here. Puzzles are so easy that they are merely "completed" rather than solved. Fragmented objects stand out for the most part, can't miss 'em. Lots of reading about childish legends, fairy tales, etc. Repetitive actions, i.e. find this medallion, put it here. Find another, put it there. Definitely a step down in the Dark Parables series. There is a lame attempt now and then to pay homage to the earlier titles. A game only a very beginning player or a child would possibly like. For anyone else, as well as this reviewer, it could qualify as a cure for insomnia. zzzzzzzzzzzzz June 26, 2014
Ballad gone bad Each scene is filled with so much stuff it's hard to keep track of what is what. I'm not a fan of fantasy world stuff and that's what this game is about. The HO's are not challenging, no morphing, no hard puzzles. I was bored and I didn't even finish the free trial, I got tired of the game really quick. June 28, 2014
