Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's The Black Cat
I expected better
I purchased this game largely because of the description and, more importantly, the reviews.
I started playing it. I keep getting caught in circles with nothing to do. The "action" is difficult to find and very obscure.
I looked on the blog. Seems that other people also get stuck for long periods of time, can't find items, have restarted the game multiple times. Items are missing.
All in all, this is a very difficult game in that you know what you need,but finding it and then using it (you must click exactly the right part of an item, or it doesn't work) , well let's just say, that the game is not user friendly.
There is no map function so if you can't refind a room, you are just stuck. There is no hint function so that if you are stuck, you are given a point where to go. There are items that are clicked and they have no purpose.
All in all, this game is just frustrating and annoying,
Don't bother getting it.

A study in eye strain
Two problems, no hint system whatsoever outside HOS and in those, the items are so small it strains not only the eye but the patience. I used the hint on some items only to find something so small and many times just a little tiny outline hidden in a dark area of the scene that there was NO WAY I would have found it. Spending so much time in the HOS's took time away from the game and they were many...It seemed that every time I turned around...another HOS that I got frustrated and quit the game.
