Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's Murders in the Rue Morgue Collector's Edition 3.8 5 21 21
Fun...but lacked some things I began liking this game very much. It needed a map and a directional hint at times would have been nice. I enjoy HO games so I was pleased with the amount of them in this game. I did, however have to skip some mini games, which I don't like to do. Directions were poor. But, at least this game allowed you to skip the mini games. I would not advise spending the extra for the CE here, because it was the shortest I have ever played! And the extra story was not needed at all. I prefer the characters to speak and in this game, they don't...You have to read everything which is said. I also noticed an annoying click whenever I moved the mouse at all anything.....so, I had to turn the sound WAY down...which I don't like to do..and there also was another annoying sound of "music" which played with every click......I like to hear the sounds going on in games...except for an ANNOYING click:) BUT with all of that said...I did have fun!

It all starts here. Although this is the first game in the Dark Tales series, it was actually the last one of the five that I played. I think it's for the best that I came by this later, because I don't like it as well as the other four. It's not a bad game by any means - it was certainly worth playing - but ERS takes the formula they introduce here and continuously improve on it with the subsequent games. This is how you, as the unnamed detective, first become acquainted with C. Auguste Dupin. Once you prove to him that you're a worthy sidekick, he takes you with him on a trek through Paris to solve a baffling and chilling murder, and also a possible kidnapping. I don't care much for Poe's writings; his stories are a little too macabre for me. I really enjoy the Dark Tales, therefore, because they make the stories much more fun. I knew who the murderer was all along because of having read the original story, but I was curious to see how ERS would handle it and they rose to the occasion beautifully. My only real complaint was that I felt a little abandoned at times. Many of the puzzles have no instructions, leaving me to ponder exactly what I'm supposed to do with each one. This isn't really a bad thing, but it would have been nice to have the option of a little guidance. Even on the easiest setting, no instructions. It's still a good way to ease into the adventure, though, and you and Dupin will remain good friends for a long time to come! June 18, 2013
One HO Scene after another This was my least favorite because it had way too many HO scenes, I liked Black Cat the best, it had much more adventure and items to find and figure out. It was also on the easy side and a bit boring. March 30, 2012
Ok game. Pretty good game. Good graphics and puzzles. Was not crazy about the storyline. April 21, 2012
Middle of the Road Not what I had anticipated, given it's a Poe. Too easy, gets boring because of that. The graphics are great. If you like HOS period then you would like this. To each their own. I recommend this only if you are into a lot of HOS. December 25, 2012
It's just average Of all the Edgar Alan Poe mystery games this is the least fun. It still has the high quality as the other games, but far too many HOGs and a lot of the objects are in the dark and, to my mind, cheating the player as they are seriously hard to find and one is reducted to using the hint button more often than usual. I also find it irritating that the cursor goes off on its own if you click more than three times around the scene. The story line is fair, but the characters are not as believable. Compared to the other games of the same ilk it doesn't match up. Nevertheless it still passes the time pleasantly January 14, 2013
Lot of HO's I like most of the Dark Tales Edgar Allan Poe series. This one had a lot of HO's and no hint button when I got stuck to know what to do next. Only travel by map when it is time to travel. If there was a way to travel between site during a chapter then I did not figure it out. So I am a little disappointed. April 25, 2013
Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's Murders in the Rue Morgue Collector's Edition Was overall just Ok. Nothing else to add. November 11, 2013
Tedious Presentation/material is fine. Expect multiple tedious HOGs in each room. Puzzles are juvenile at best. A lot of text with little visual action and no voice over. I suppose this is definitely a HOG and not at all "adventure". Being Poe, it is of course very classical in pace. I didn't realize what I was getting into until after the demo and purchasing. If you're interested in the story go find the book. If you love frequent HOGs try this game out. April 2, 2012
No Action, HOG Only (NAHO) I bought this game because I have the other three of the series and I like all of them. Imagine my surprise when I bought this game during the sale (so I can't really complain, but I can't help it), that this is the worst HOG game ever made. I can't believe that there are 4 HOG scenes in one area.. Can you imagine that.. all corners of the room are sparkled and you are to find just one item from a pile of junks. The game itself is short and I think it's cheating us that the HOG scenes are there to prolong the gameplay. definitely not happy. Furthermore there is no hint button during the regular game, and it's only in the HOG scene. The button itself recharges very slowly. I am almost at the end of the game, only being given HOG scenes after scenes. Getting tired and weary over a short period of time. I am even dreading the bonus chapter and not looking forward to it. Will not replay this game for a long time. I am glad, though, that the games after this one is getting better and better. Can't wait to finish this game. Ugh! March 18, 2013
