Ominous Tales: The Forsaken Isle is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do NOT pass this one up!!! I truly enjoyed this game. I did NOT get tired of playing it...it was NOT the back and forth gameplay like most of the games. You even have a custom level to skip all the puzzle games that you don't like. I have said time and time again...I hate most of them and asked the Devs to give us the choice to go to HOG instead of the puzzle games. They have NOT listened to me as of yet. There is NO cons about this game to tell you about...just plain enjoyable. Has a great ending as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This is a great SE game! It plays with a nice level of challenge on the "expert" setting, and the graphics are amazing...I particularly like the notes that reflect the action as the they are being read! The plot and the voice overs are good and the demo just flew by! Try it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love Ghost Stories And This Is A Goodie! Have always had a fascination with tales of the sea with all the ghosts and pirates, the lost souls who went to a watery grave. This story is so engulfed in mystery, supernatural creatures, ghostly pirates. Danger is all around our main character. Then, of course, Vincent brings his anger and wrath into the picture to help us see how all this tragedy came about. I can't believe what a superb Standard Edition game this actually is! It contains unusual collectibles, lots of extras, a good journal, and a nice map to get us around this forsaken island. So an excellent package for the SE price. The storyline is so engrossing! It will be a very long game for me since I'll be taking my time enjoying all the surroundings. The HOGs were interesting and challenging. Rarely do we see skippable HOGs, but here they are. I can't imagine ever by-passing one of them, they are so much fun. There was a lot of interactivity in the HOGs and throughout the demo. It gets me frustrated at times, just wanting to complete the task pronto, and get on with the game. As for the mini games...they were challenging but doable with a little extra patience. The few I encountered included arranging puzzle strips to complete a picture. Another with little ships to deliver to their assigned ports, using arrows to guide them. The last involved symbols on the ships wheel which had to be turned in a particular sequence. They were different and interesting. All were fun, not frustrating! The graphics were just okay in the demo. But I'm betting they will greatly improve once we are out of the gray, watery environment that is involved. The colors had to be murky and dull to depict the wreckage scenes. The voices sounded good, but if you care about the lip-sync, that wasn't so good. I only saw a couple of characters, but they were nicely rendered, the best example in the demo was the fearful boatman. I hope he survived the trip to the Forsaken Island. He was paid handsomely for the job. I am certainly anxious to get onto that island and solve some of the mystery and maybe even say howdy to that wicked Vincent. Thank goodness I'll be safe, in the reality of the game! I can hardly wait to buy it and get started. God Bless....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CAN YOU RELEASE THE LADY ANNABELLE? You have been having nightmare recently and often wake up in a cold sweat as you feel your ancestor the Lady Annabelle Stark calling you to release her from her torment. It is not long before you realize that you must go to the Forsaken Isle to research your past and the Lady Annabelle who mysteriously disappeared, never to be seen again. It is not very often that BFG presents a new and very good SE HOPA game during the week. Ominous Tales the Forsaken Isle is a very good game that was most likely meant to be a CE but for some reason was released as an SE. Aside from the missing Strategy Guide and Bonus Game everything else is here including collectibles, wallpapers, concept art, music, and stories. The graphics are good and colorful in spite of the dark theme of a ghostly mystery. The game offers a custom mode of gameplay but there are not many options available so you will need to turn off the tutorial early in the game if you don’t need the extra help. You will find a transporter type map early in the game that will show where you have current tasks available. The HOPs are well done and some are quite lovely although they are fairly basic with minimal interaction required to find some items. Even though we might visit the same HOP more than once the style will generally change. Revisiting HOPS has never been something that bothers me but I know many gamers don't like it. Fortunately the scenes are easy on the eyes with gorgeous graphics. The puzzles are good and some are a bit challenging. I happen to dislike the puzzles where spinning or turning one thing changes other adjacent items and there is one of those puzzles fairly early in the game. Since it drove me nuts fairly quickly it didn't take long to become a skip for me. Fortunately there were other excellent puzzles that I enjoyed solving without the frustration level tagging along. As noted above the game has a lot of the extras found in CE games so it became a nice bonus game for me. I always struggle to find games that I like where I can use my free coupons so today’s surprise became an instant addition to my gaming library. Although I like the game and the storyline there were moments when the gameplay seemed a bit clunky but not enough to prevent me from enjoying the game. I like the storyline of the Lady of the Isle and her lost love. The bad guy Victor is certainly an evil madman and one you must defeat in order to release the Lady Annabelle. As always, I suggest you try the demo to see if you will enjoy the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aarr....Tis A Pirate Ghost Story...And A Good One At That! Thirty miles off the coast of England, lies the infamous Forsaken Isle. Folks around here know that once you step foot upon the island, you will never return, because this island is home to ghosts, necromancers, and man-eating wolves. It is also home to Lady Annabel and her star crossed lover Vincent. Lady Annabel has been coming to you in your dreams, begging for your help to escape her never ending torment. And of course your curiosity compels you to the Forsaken Isle, but you know what they say about curiosity killing the cat, will you be the Isle's next victim? This is a fantastic Standard Edition game, with decent graphics and voiceovers, not to mention all of the extra content available. There are 8 collectible pages from Annabelle's Diary, 9 Tormented Souls, 12 Claw Marks and 8 Character's Biography pages to unlock. There are also Wallpapers and Concept Art offered. The Hidden Object Scenes are good, but they are repeated in the same scene, usually with a different type, like an Interactive List find followed by Silhouetted Shape finds. This game does allow you to skip the HOP's which is a rarity in most adventure games. I thought the graphics were less clear within the HOP's than in the main game. The Mini Games are actually fun and not too easy or difficult. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Swap horizontal tile strips to recreate a picture. 2) Use directional arrows to guide several color coded ships to their matching ports using anchors and other ships as bumpers. 3) Rotate the ships wheel using the center symbol as a clue to turn the wheel in the correct direction and the correct number of revolutions. This may only be a Standard Edition version, but it has a lot of extras including 8 Character Bios, 9 Tormented Souls, 8 Annabel's Diary Pages, 12 Claw Marks, 10 Concept Art Pictures, 10 Wallpapers, and 3 Music Soundtracks. I didn't hesitate to use a coupon for this little gem, it's well worth it, enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Passably good game Found it rather short but enjoyed playing it. Music was quiet and not distracting, puzzles for the most part I skipped, hidden objects were easy to find and all in all an easy game to pass the time when wanting a break from more complicated games.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, but unfairly short! The problem with the people who review a game after just the demo is that you can never get a full sense of the game. This game was great, but.....it was ridiculously short! I completed the whole game in 1.5 hours. The game had such potential and reminded me of the Midnight Mysteries series which I love. Definitely recommend it, but use a free game token because its not worth spending money on. Such a shame!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DEFEAT VINCENT FAULKNER REVIEW OF COMPLETED GAME This is an enjoyable game which I played virtually non-stop. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Easy, Hard, Expert and Custom modes of play; * Interactive map; * Notebook; * Find 9 Tormented Souls, 8 Annabel's Diary Pages and 12 Claw Marks. The liked that I could turn off Hint, Skip and Skip HOPs in Custom mode to make it a little more challenging. The graphics are pretty good. Everywhere is clear to see and to find items you need. There is plenty of colour. Sound is good and the music is orchestral and creepy sounds. The hidden object games are slightly interactive straightforward and silhouette which you will do twice. These are easy to do and items are clear to see. There are a good selection of mini-games to play. These are not taxing on the brain and you can get back to the game quickly. I enjoyed doing these because its been a while since I've done them. Throughout the game you will find the tormented souls, Annabel's diary pages and claw marks. These are easy to spot, however a hand comes over them anyway, so no chance of missing them. The interactive map show where tasks are to be performed if you get stuck. All up the game took me about 4 hours to play and I really enjoyed it. Overall, definitely worth having a look at or using an extra coupon. I remember that I have played a couple of other games by this developer which are 'Greed - The Mad Scientist' and 'Mystery of Neverville - Runestone of Light' which you could also have a look at. Happy playing fishies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Perfect, But a Giant Step in the Right Direction In a previous century, Lady Annabel had disappeared on the island she was visiting. Her father had sent her to meet his business partner, Lord Vincent. After Lady A. vanished, wild man-eating wolves attacked the locals and the island was abandoned. You have visited after a hundred years and recent visions of Lady A., one of your ancestors, begging for your help to release her soul. Things go rapidly from bad to worse as you are snatched off your boat and stranded on a wreck in the harbour. You will have to fight the wolves and the raging warlock lord to save your life and help the spirit of Lady A. Good stuff: Collectibles, HOPS of varying types and interaction, mini-games, and extras like wallpapers, artwork, and character stories. The story was well done and given a good bit of development, while maintaining some mystery. Did I mention there were collectibles and extras on this standard edition game? Bad stuff: Mini-game directions were less than helpful. The game play was reminiscent of a lot of other games. I really like finding not only a good story, but also extras, in a standard game. Those two elements together mean a buy for my extensive game collection. Please try the Demo for yourself. This game is not perfect, but it is a nice little present for Gamers. You too may find a hidden gem!
