Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's Murders in the Rue Morgue
Although it was pretty short, it had a good storyline. I liked the variety of puzzles and hidden objects. It was certainly not my favorite but it was fun to pass the time.

This is the most awesome game I ever played.
I love Edgar Allan Poe's stories.
I olso have played The Black cant and Premature Burial.
I hope Big Fish will continue making the next one :)

This was a pretty fun game, the hidden object scenes were fun and the puzzles weren't really dificult. Although, if you're a fan of Poe and have read his stories, then you already know the killer and the ending isn't a huge surprise. Overall, I think it was worth the purchase.

This is my first game in the Dark Tales series. This review is based on the SE.
I was disappointed in the length of this game. I finished this in a day.
The visuals/graphics were excellent. The storyline was just ok and the puzzles themselves were easy. A bit too easy.
I look forward in playing the next games and hope they are better.

Good game for any Poe fan
The first story in this trilogy is truley a must for any Poe lover. While the were no VO, the music was soothingly appropriate and the graphics crisp and clear. Loved the map that transported you to the next area. Not a lot of going back and forth either. While the puzzles offered no directions they were simple enough to sovle anyway. Slightly on the short side, the story is classic Poe and a good game to have.

I started out really liking the game, but as I got further into it, I found it boring and frustrating in parts more than anything else. I just cannot recommend this game as fun and worth buying. Sorry.

Better than the black cat. A good fun game to play. Not difficult at all.

Having played the other Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's hidden object games I beleive this must have been the first attempt. I was easy to play and not a long game. I was a little disappointed because had I tried this one first I would never have played the other two which are excellent HO games. If you get stumped at the table with the microscope put the snail shell at the middle of the pitcher not up at the top like you are dropping it in or you will be there forever. LOL GL Have fun.
