Dark Cases: The Blood Ruby Collector's Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Better Games Ever!!! Took a while for me to actually get started, however, just finished this game and it was totally magnificent from story line, puzzles, objects, voice overs, cut scenes, artwork, music. I could go on an on, the game was very enjoyable. Each time I started playing for some reason, I got distracted. That was my loss. Glad I went back to it as it's now one of my favorites. The Bonus Game is just as great and blends very well to the main story. More, more, more! Bravo! Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game with a great story I didn't expect too much from this game but once I started playing it I got hooked. Great graphics, a good story to follow, not too many HOS to interfere with the flow of the game, over 8 hours of gameplay, an interactive map, good voiceovers, and lots of good puzzles. Really enjoyed this game and it's rare I give 5 star ratings in all four categories but this game deserves it. I played in casual mode and didn't need the hints or strategy guide too much, but it's also challenging enough with a big play area to explore. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very immersive, interesting, good-looking game and a dark case, indeed! "Dark Cases: The Blood Ruby" was an amazing, very atmospheric and very entertaining game to play. Not only is it one of the most beautiful games I've ever played, but it has a great cast of gripping characters and it possesses a very somber storyline. The story is all centered in the small town of Easthaven and in the famous "Blood Ruby", possessed by the woman who founded the town. By being given a second chance of saving your father's life, you find yourself involved in a web of deception that leads you to the background of the town itself and, of course, of the murderous ruby. One thing that disappointed me in the game was that there are no other types of hidden objects scenes besides the ever-present "shopping list". Almost every game nowadays brings lot of different types to these scenes (one of my favorites being the ones where you put objects in the scenes), and, so, I was really let down with this. The main game is really long and it will always keep you on your toes, dying to find out what happens next. However, the bonus chapter, although really interesting, is very short, and besides that you are left with the usual extra content: mini-games, wallpapers, music and so on. Besides the gripping bonus chapter (being in the skin of Diana at the moment she finds the ruby and entering the Temple of Blood, while trying to resist its power was just amazing), and the beautiful concept art that you can save! (no kidding, it's the best concept art I ever laid my eyes on), there's nothing more when it comes to the Collector's Edition. So, I recommend that you play the Standard Edition first, and, if you find yourself loving this game like I did, then maybe go for the CE. I loved being after one suspect at first and then going for another and so on. I actually felt in the skin of a detective, but also never forgetting why I came to Easthaven in the first place: to save the main protagonist's father. The storyline and the artwork all helped to make a really immersing and atmospheric game (I just loved the '20's setting), as well as the voice overs, who were believable and nice to listen to. The music was another wonderful thing. It wasn't annoying whatsoever and was really calm and beautiful. One track was even reminiscent of the '20's feel, really! Nothing but an amazingly produced and created game here. I loved this game. I really hope my review will help you in deciding whether to buy or try this game or not! Some people may find it a bit slow and too calm, but I just loved this. If I ever want to watch a movie (nothing but pandemonium), I turn the TV on! A casual game is to make you think and to make you engrossed in its story and setting, all the while relaxing you, too. "Dark Cases: The Blood Ruby", has all that to offer you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An unusual Murder mystery with a twist! I was captivated by the story in this adventure. The beginning is mature content because you witness a shooting and a knife stabbing. I was so intrigued I couldn't break from playing. When you go back into the past you witness a boy doll come to life via the blood ruby. Keep your eyes on him...You get double the inventory items for solving HOS/Puzzles and a map. Distubingly different and brilliantly conceived. Bonus tells back story of the blood ruby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent in every way! Based on Full Game I will remember Boolat Games after this one. I am not familiar with this developer and hope they can keep up this level of interest and gameplay. Most everyone has summed up the plot.....so I'll skip to more of the fun. This was not gory or violent or dark in the sense that some games are so demonic and sickening with rotting corpses and bones and evil everywhere. THIS was a THRILLER! YAY! Just what I've been waiting for. There are still several murder scenes, but they are hardly violent and even the bones are not gory. They get the point across that this Blood Ruby is a source to be reckoned with. There are a lot of twists in the plot that leave you guessing who might be the real antagonist. One thing that I have to mention and hope they can change, is that the screen shots with this game title above have NOTHING to do with the full version of this game. They are shots from the Bonus game that is set in an entirely different part of the world. I have no idea why they did that. It is very misleading and not in a good way.. This game really captured my interest from the very beginning. I played it on and off for over five days ....like a good book you don't want to put down. The CE had the SG which I never used. The map is interactive and gives you several choices of places you can return for an active area. I personally loath the "collectables animals, or trophies etc" and HAPPILY this does not have any. I don't understand that attraction, but each to their own interest. The hint button does not recharge very quickly so this is a bit more challenging to find other ways to move along. It does at least point a direction when no action is needed in the current scene.....but the map is more useful. There are just enough HOS which have a little turn where you must find three outlined items that interact with the HO inventory. This was a little confusing, but the developer added in a two step tutorial just on the first HOS. It helped and I appreciated it, even though I did not opt for the full tutorial. One reviewer objected to this, as they said "no tutorials means no tutorial." Which I would agree if they forced you through a full series of "help", but this was more of a starter tip on a creative NEW change in game play. Don't be put off by it. You'll understand when you see it. The graphics are fabulous.....and the MUSIC was outstanding. This has been a pet peeve of mine for a long time.....when you play a game and the music just loops throughout the game and you want to go bonkers or just mute it. This developer has been listening to customers and thought out the music to adapt to the mood of EACH setting. It was VERY helpful and entertaining to hear a soft tune in a calm setting, or hear tension in escalating violins playing an eery off beat sound that added excitement. The Extras have a nice Bonus Game that gives you a hint to the origin of the Blood Ruby and how it got into Lady Campbell's hands. There were also repeats of some of the strategy games that were challenging. It's nice to go back and test my brain teaser skills on the ones I chose to skip. I HIGHLY recommend this game. More please!! It has bumped up to the top as my newest favorite game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game If you're like me and a bit over the doom and gloom of HOG's then this is a lovely surprise. The graphics are life like and crystal clear, there is an interactive map, great mini games and story line. I brought the CE based on the Trial which I don't usually buy CE's but had to have this one.
