If Only The Dead Could Talk..... ......They just might tell you what you want to know! Detective Dupin is doing just that, listening to the ghostly spirit of Lola Saunie. Auguste Dupin hasn't seen Jacque Lumin since they attended the University together, unfortunately, this won't be a social meeting. Jacque desperately needs help unraveling a mystery that only a detective as skilled as Dupin could solve. (and of course you, his top assistant) Solving this case proves quite difficult for Dupin, when the best lead he has just happens to be dead, but that's never stopped us before right? Jacque's Grandmother gave him a Magic Mirror when he was six years old. Since he no longer has use for this mirror he passes it down to Dupin, which proves to be invaluable in this investigation. Any inventory item that has a green checkmark above it can be used on the Magic Mirror to reveal that items original nature, revealing sources and even codes and combinations. Personally, I thought this feature was ridiculous, why don't we just equip Dupin with some pixie dust while we're at it, it just doesn't belong in this kind of game. You will also receive an official Dark Tales Detective Badge, which will be stored to the left of the inventory bar along with the map and journal. The Hidden Object Scenes are far and few between, I believe there were only three in the entire demo, consisting of fairly interactive list finds. The Mini Games are very entertaining, smaller puzzles are abundant such as selecting bats in the correct order, turning 3 cylinders to complete a pattern or swapping books until the symbols on the book matched the correct genre symbols on the shelf. There were also longer, more complicated puzzle such as a Mahjong game with barrels where you click on two identical symbols that are free and available, or assembling torn poster pieces, using a rotation button to turn the pieces. Most games are available in Casual or Hard modes. The Collectors Edition has Morphing Creatures, Achievements, Movies, wallpapers, Concept art, Screensavers, replayable Hidden Object Scenes and Mini Games, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

My First Review I never do reviews but since I complained loudly about the tech status of the CE, I thought it would behoove me to leave one for the the SE which I purchased because the trial had only a couple of tech problems that basically worked themselves out. I'm going to list them here because they are part of my review. 1. Closed out of game, computer crashed. 2. Tried again, but when the computer crashed, the game's Save file was corrupted so had to start over with a new profile. Then, everything worked fine. I had been waiting for the SE to come out for what seemed like forever and with the hope that all the bugs would be fixed. I'm not going to tell the story, just going to keep it simple with just the information I look for in a review. 1. Beautiful graphics. Wow, gorgeous characters! 2. Unobtrusive, appropriate music. 3. Hardly any running around, most items needed for a scene are found somewhere in the scene. There is an interactive map. 4. Along with the normal selections, this has Custom game play (love being able to shorten the time it takes for the hint and skip to recharge). Hints will show you where to go next, or you can use the map. 5. You get to keep your matches throughout most of the game! I think all games should let you keep your matches/lighter and screwdrivers!!! 6. Satisfactory ending. Only mention it because of the complaints about the ending for the CE. 7. Completed SE in an afternoon, just the way I like it. I happen to like the shorter games. The longer games with soooooo much running back and forth (even with an interactive map) frustrate me because I just want to get on with the story. Too long with too much running back and forth and too much stuff to do and I forget what the story was. Anyway, that's just me So, there you have it. I hope this will be helpful to some. Happy gaming! March 20, 2015
What's Our Next Move, Inspector? Setting: the story is loosely based on a short story by Edgar Allen Poe (who is erroneously shown writing left-handed in the opening). You and the esteemed Detective Auguste Dupin are summoned to the aid of Dupin's college friend, Jacque. Marie Roget is Jacque's wife and her aunt, Madam Boulangerie, owns the local bakery. Of late Marie has been depressed and there have been strange occurrences at home. The story's location is not stated, but clearly everyone has a French-sounding name. To begin this seventh Dark Tales adventure, Dupin finally hands you an official Inspector's badge - which you sheepishly admit you've always wanted. The artwork, both in the still and cut scenes, is of the style and quality that is typical of this developer. The scenes tend to be fairly straightforward; that is, each one contains only a few active areas to explore. Despite this, my impression was that the overall play was slightly more complex than the average game. The voice acting was adequate. With all the french names, I felt the American accents sounded somewhat out-of-place. Dupin's friend is called "Jack." I couldn't help thinking that the story would have had even more draw-in power if the characters had even nominal french accents. The first puzzle was literally as simple as 1-2-3, but after that both the hidden object scenes (19) and mini-games (12) were not quite as easy-peasy as many games have become. That is not to say that they are difficult, but the brain cells will get at least a little bit of exercise. Hidden objects scenes are standard interactive. There are four difficulty settings including one Custom. Hint and Skip can be set anywhere between 5 and 200 seconds to refill. There are also game notes and a very, very nice transportable 3-D map. In the other version (CE) there are morphing creatures (12) which will populate an aquarium. There are also 12 achievements, bonus level and strategy guide. Then there are the usual pseudo-extras like wallpapers, music and concept art. This game is very well made like most others in this series. It has an engaging story line and the play is refreshing because it is not quite so easy. Because of the so-so bonus content, I rated the CE version only 4 stars but this SE version deserves more. Five stars and that coveted Inspector's badge for The Mystery of Marie Roget. March 20, 2015
Edgar Allan Poe's The Mystery of Marie Roget I have just finished playing the game and I loved it. It has a great storyline and the graphics are superb. I love all the Edgar Allan HOG's and have played them all and this one is no exception I couldn't leave it until it was completed. Once again well done big fish for another fantastic HOG. March 20, 2015
Walkthrough listed none found I loved the game and bought the SE. I really didn't need the walkthrough but like to have one so I can check it once in a while. Why list a walkthrough and then find there is none. I checked this yesterday when I bought the game, and again today and still none found. That being said the game was totally enjoyable. Everything worked well. March 21, 2015
Poor Poor Marie This is posted after playing the entire game. This is a really good game. I played the CE demo when it came out and have been waiting patiently, kind of, for the SE. I'm glad I did! I believe I have all the series, and this one is just a tad bit different. The graphics were excellent as usual and the sound was good. I do wish they would come up with a different melody, but this has become synonymous with the series. There is an interactive map which was quite helpful and the hint and skip buttons are quicker than usual. Way to go ERS! I gave it a lower rating on the challenge, because the hidden objects, while varied in type, were simple. Those who like to rack their brains on the mini puzzles are going to be disappointed I'm afraid. They too are on the easy side. I even played some. The only trouble I had was figuring out what I needed to do in some of the mini games. There wasn't the usual instructions, but not so difficult I couldn't figure it out. Having said that, this game was just right for me. I play to relax and not do mental gymnastics. I would rate this for beginner and intermediate. The story was absorbing from the beginning and kept me guessing. It was true to the game and actually made sense. I think you will like this. Give it a try. March 20, 2015
Great game Wish it was longer I really liked the game, but I found it was pretty easy and to short. I have all the other games in this series. I enjoyed it, but like I said to short, only took a couple of hours. March 23, 2015
Inspector Dupin does it again! As with the previous Poe and Inspector Dupin games, the graphics here are great. There's a wide variety of puzzles; some ridiculously easy, and others wickedly challenging. Most puzzles have a casual and harder option. The storyline started out quite interesting, but I was confused at the end. I also think the game was a bit on the short side. Still, lots of fun and it will hold your attention. March 21, 2015
very nice game I enjoyed this game. The story line was good and held my interest. The HOS were also enjoyable. Not that many mini games, but they were entertaining. I skipped one, which was a 'slider' puzzle, simply because I dislike slider puzzles... but the rest I did. The graphics were wonderful, too. All in all, to me it didn't have that 'wow' factor, but it was relaxing and kept me interested from start to finish. January 5, 2016
what the........... I didn't like the voice of the new detective! I want the old one back! and yes, it did seem to take away from my overall experience of the game having to listen to the new guy. The game is very simple and you can play with in custom mode with everything turned off and still not miss the help. the game play is on the short side. This one missed the mark overall compared to the others in the series. 2015 April 21, 2015
