Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's Lenore Collector's Edition is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Fine "Dark Tales" This is a far cry from Poe's "Lenore" that I enjoyed reading, growing up with his poetry and grim tales. But in the gaming world, this rendition works just fine. Actually, this is a very entertaining game and I always love our very handsome Dupin. I never miss an offering from Dark Tales, they are exceptional but for one or two "bad eggs". There is much to like about Lenore: The graphics are gorgeous, the colors rich and beautiful. The characters and voices, as always, are rendered perfectly, the period dress and scenery indoors and out are very detailed and interesting. All the games and puzzles are quite enjoyable, the challenge good, for me not one disappointment. I am a huge fan of the Custom Level for lowering the hint and skip recharge times. Also the choice of levels offered allows everyone to get in on the game, regardless of skill level. The Poe tales always have provided excellent adventure, mystery, crime solving, games, interesting visuals, the game pace is never slow or boring.. I've never experienced a tech problem to spoil the fun. I'll not add description of the story/plot to my ramblings. Don't want to spoil someone's fun and description has been covered quite well by reviewers ahead of me. Not many extras this time around, but my main reason for purchasing CE is to get the Bonus Chapter and the Guide. Well, I'm eager to help Dupin solve this case, so off I go to thwart the evil doings of the Crows League. Faith....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from And now for something completely different Puzzles-not too hard but definitely different than the norm. Music-very good. Voice overs-very good. I liked the voice overs in this game because they didn't sound too stilted in the actors' speech. So far a bit different from the usual HOP's. Will definitely buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mysterious adventure .... Another case for you as assistant to the unforgettable Dupin. (Admirable, how he’s been able to keep his looks.) Your skills are needed in Goldstone: the mayor has written a letter, in which he asks for help in the recent disappearance of children. Even his son was abducted and he suspects, the mysterious Crows league could be behind this. Before you can meet him in person, you have to undergo a test in the town’s inn. The ghostly owner has you solve riddles and thereby you learn about Lenore. When she was an 8 year old child, the inn was raided, he and his wife were murdered and only she could hide and survive the incident. Now she is the fiancé of the mayor’s son. The Crows league seems a sinister cult, sort of secret society, claiming to protect children. We will have to learn more about them, in order to free the children. This is one of the best games in the Dark Tales series: fast paced, puzzle-intense and equipped with quite creative HO scenes. We have feathers to collect as well as morphing objects. Many cutscenes contribute to suspense in the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IMMERSE YOURSELF IN A GAME WITH A “MURDER” OF CROWS 5 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter - Strategy Guide: 41 Pages Debonair Dupin returns in another exciting game! You are off to the town of Goldstone as the assistant to the ever-handsome Dupin, who has just received a much-needed face-life from the game’s illustrators. Children are disappearing within the town. Summoned by the mayor, you learn that the Crows League is involved in the abductions. After writing a letter to his father to abdicate his position, it seems that the mayor’s own son may be involved with the cult as well. After passing a test by the town tavern’s ghostly owner, you learn about Lenore, a young girl orphaned at a young age who is now betrothed to the mayor’s son. What sinister plot is being concocted by the secret cult of the Crows League? And, why are the town’s children being kidnapped? This is my favorite series by this developer. The graphics are incredibly beautiful as always with AMAX. The story, for a change, kept my attention and the pace is active with plenty of activities. The HOP scenes and puzzles are creative and well-done. You collect extremely large feathers, which practically jump out at you from the scene There are morphing objects as well which are not as easy to locate. To me, this game is an improvement from recent games. There are NO HELPERS (alas nevermore - a raven, crow, cat, dog, or hybrid-ferret will help you) within this game. It is puzzle-intense and fast moving. There is a wonderfully crafted escape room puzzle at the end of the demo. One of the best puzzles I have seen from AMAX in quite some time. Kudos AMAX! HOP SCENES: They vary in style and difficulty in locating the items. There is a storybook sequence in the beginning of the game which has items so large, you cannot help but see them. You will not even have to search for them – most are highlighted within the scene. However, there are several mini-HOP scenes locating a small number (four to six) of crows, buttons, chalk and numbers. In some of these scenes the items are somewhat difficult to locate. There is a very creative and well-designed multiple step scene in which the player locates three each of different items followed by a matching scene in which two symbols are combined to create a larger symbol. PUZZLES: The puzzles are incredibly well-designed. To me, they are the best part of the game. The puzzles are of easy and middle-level difficulty. There are some which give you the option to choose between Casual and Hard settings. There is a maze puzzle involving crows, a jigsaw puzzle to recreate a mirror, a couple of switch puzzles, a lock puzzle, a rope puzzle to untangle live wires. FAVORITE PUZZLES: (A) Escape Room! Escape a room by passing through three sets of booby traps. Find that “proper time” to enter while avoiding swinging blades, spikes, and knives. Very creative! (B) Maze puzzle! This is a fiendish little puzzle in which you must move a scarab through a maze without getting killed. You lose life force when you are hit by a blade. You must open locks with keys you collect of the same color. You can also collect repair kits to repair your scarab. The difficult version is truly difficult! LEVELS: Casual, Advanced, Hard, Custom Hints and Skips: 5 to 200 seconds EXTRAS: Map is provided as you play the game 16 Achievements Collect 66 feathers and 32 Morphing Objects Replay 16 puzzles and 21 HOP scenes 10 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art, 5 Screensavers, Music, Movies HERE ARE THE DETAILS (SPOILERS) ON THE HOP SCENES AND PUZZLES IN SEQUENCE: HOP SCENES: (A) Storybook. Locate three (3) each of a series of items within a ghostly scene. (B) Locate 12 of one item (C) Mini-HOP scenes. Locate a small number of specific items in various scenes - 4 crows, 4 buttons, 4 pieces of chalk and six (6) numbers. (D) Multiple step. 1. Find 3 each of different items – animals, sharp objects, game objects, and 6 lock parts. 2. Matching. Locate two symbols which combine to create a larger symbol. PUZZLES: (1) Easy 2) Moderate difficulty (3) Difficult A. Choice between Casual and Hard. Maze puzzle. Rotate and switch (in hard version) four (4) rings to create paths for two crows to travel to the other end of the maze. B. Jigsaw puzzle. Take shards and replace them into a broken mirror to restore the mirror. Rating: 2 C. Switch puzzle. Switch parts of an insignia so they match with those on a given letter seal. Rating: 1 D. Lock puzzle. Enter a given code to open a lock. Rating: 1 E. Rope puzzle. Untangle a series of live wires so that none intersect with the each other. Rating: 2 F. Assembly puzzle. Create a chemical compound to expose a message written in invisible ink. Rating: 2 G. Physical puzzle. “Sock it to the Crow.” Sleight of hand. Follow a tile with a fist on it as it moves rapidly back-and-forth with other tiles. When they stop moving, choose that tile from the rest. 3X Rating: 2 H. Choice between Casual and Hard. Maze puzzle. Lead a scarab through a maze which contains keys and knives. Collect the keys to open locks to proceed while avoiding the knives. You lose life force when you are hit by the knives. You can also collect kits to repair your scarab if you get hit with a knife. Keys must match the color of the lock. I. Switch puzzle. Switch four diamonds on a box according to color. Rating: 1 J. Escape Room puzzle. Escape a room by passing through three sets of booby traps. Find that “proper time” to avoid swinging blades, spikes, and knives. Very creative! Rating: 2

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best Dark Tales so far With a good tempo and a strong game play, this episode was really fun, but with some minor issues here and there and some frenzy puzzles to solve. You get to collect golden feathers (usually 2) in every scene and bird-like morphings that light up. I liked the idea of a lit, caged crow as a hint icon in the Menu bar. And the bonus round is equally strong. The scenario good be better...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from it was confusing I didnt really get the main story, was this supost to be a continue of the last game or what....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Am I Just Shallow? I have to say I used to love the Dark Tales games--wonderful puzzles and interesting storylines. Now, though, I can't play them anymore...because what have they done to Dupin? He looks like he hasn't slept in weeks, and the stubble is more alarming than sexy. I used to love to look at my debonair friend as we adventured together, but now I'm afraid I can't stand the change in him. Other people seem to like the new look, though, so... is it just me?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Middle of the Road Addition to the Series I really enjoy the Dark Tales Poe games (even though they have virtually nothing to do with anything Poe wrote.) This one looks fantastic, has great music and sound, and Dupin is still one of the sexiest drawings ever. :-) On the other hand, the "Lenore" plotline is tedious and the mini-games are ridiculously easy. I prefer the installments that feature dark, gothic Parisian streets instead of characterless caves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Skip, Skip, Skip... This is based on the demo. I will leave the plot description to others. This is another game that bears no connection to what Poe wrote. Why not choose an original name and stop trying to convince players that it is something it isn't? The colors and graphics are nice, but not spectacular. The premise is same old, same old. The morphs did require some attention to spot, but the collectible feathers were very obvious. HOPs were standard and objects easy to find; puzzles were easy. Nothing compelled me to be interested in the characters or their stories. I might have considered buying this game if it weren't for all the conversations required before you can do anything! When I play a game, I want to be active and moving along, not wasting time with having to keep clicking 'continue' and 'skip' several times before I can touch things or move! I know there will be those who like this kind of constant interaction, but it seems more like a way to stretch out the game rather than serve a useful purpose. I would recommend this for beginners and those who really enjoy this sort of storyline; if you are looking for a challenge and something new, this isn't it. Try before buying!
