Maestro: Dark Talent 3.5 5 14 14
Wow! Thumbs UP Dark Maestro! Very nice game - I really enjoyed it and played the whole game in one day. I am glad I decided to purchase it based on the trials for both Standard and Collectors. (and glad I didn't bypass it because the reviews for the standard) were lukewarm (less than 4). Ironic that today is Halloween and one of the main things that sets this game at 5 stars in my mind, is how really scary those weird bat-ghost things are that come out of everywhere! LOL! The sounds were far and away SCARY! Very OTHER-WORDLY. It even has vague elements that remind of the puppet show series which i consider artistically superior to almost everything on earth. ;o) October 31, 2014
Really liked this game! For a non Collectors game, this one was really fun. The story line was great, the puzzles fun, but not impossible, and the HO's kept my interest and challenge level engaged. I would highly recommend the purchase. It's well worth your time and money. November 20, 2014
Some People Never Learn From Their Mistakes! Diva sang opera so beautifully that it was to die for, quite literally her melodic voice would drain the life essence out of anyone who listened to her voice! She was eventually banned from performing in most of Europe causing her to become a recluse until the angry family members of her victims took her life when they burned her house to the ground. But evil cannot be suppressed for long, and the opening trailer allows us to see evil reborn before our eyes as two evil minions search for the Diva's coffin in a dark cemetery. "I feel her presence near" is hauntingly spoken by one of the minions, and before you can blink an eye, the minions peel open her coffin lid to expose Diva's rotting corpse, "Rise Diva we've given you back your life" For now the show must go on, unfortunately when you arrive at the opera house to meet Kate Halbreits and her family for Diva's latest performance, you watch Kate being sucked into the entrance by those same evil minions! Your investigation reveals that the Diva needs Kate alive, but why? As you try desperately to gain access into the opera house you are summoned by a young man who claims to be a "Knowing" some use their powers for good, others evil. The Knowing has given you a Medallion capable of stopping evil forces, however, each time the Medallion is used it requires new crystals to reactivate. The Knowing has hidden these crystals all around the theater just before the show and you must find these crystals before using it's powerful forces against the entities you come across. You will also receive help on occasion from a pesky and mischievous little ferret, who actually does more harm than good (and I might add that the animation graphics on this ferret is horrible, his face is out of proportion and he's just plain ugly!) On a personal note, I wasn't all that impressed by this Maestro, the other's in this series are fantastic and entertaining. I think this is a good game, not a great game and at times the game moved along so slowly that I became bored. Some of the inventory items have gears shown above them indicating that further action needs to be taken before using that item such as combining that item with another inventory item. The Hidden Object Scenes are a variety of finding multiples of the same item such as 12 chain links, interactive list finds and progressive interactive silhouettes where you find the first item that matches the silhouetted shape and then use that item to interact with another item in the scene which exposes the next item and so forth. The mini games were entertaining, some smaller games are actually in the HOS such as sliding tokens around a grid formation with some stationary blocks that you use as a stopping point to maneuver the blocks into a specific color coded slot, and you can use each of the sliding tokens as bumpers too. Other mini games consist of matching two halves of a token to complete a picture by clicking on the tokens to rotate them as you use the center hub to exchange the two halves. I wasn't paying that much attention this time but in the CE, the Hidden Object Scenes have an alternate pair matching game available for those of you who don't like the HOS, just not sure if that option was available in this SE. The Collectors Edition version has Achievements, Music, Concept Art, Wallpapers, Screensavers, Movies, Re-playable Puzzles and HO's, a built in Strategy Guide and of course a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Is the Diva's Singing Voice Deadly? Maybe not Deadly, but she sure is a control freak! LMAO In the Opening Scene, skeletal ghosties have robbed the grave of the "Diva", bringing her back to life in a gorgeous young body. The graphics were done really well. The music and sound effects were excellent. I was disappointed, however, because we got voice overs but no lip syncing. Seriously? In this day and age of computer gaming ....... how hard is it to make a mouth move???? The HOGs were varied, interactive, and fun. I did not find any of them difficult. There IS an alternative game you can play instead of the HOGs. It's a bit like those games where a row of "balls" or whatever is moving towards a "pit" and you have a "shooter". This "shooter" moves in a stationary circle and whichever color "ball" is showing, you shoot it into the moving chain of multi-colored balls to make a match of 3 or more like-colored balls so they'll disappear. In this particular game, there is no "pit", just a never-ending continuous circle of colored balls. The mini-games were also varied and while some were quite easy, there were others that required the old "patience and perseverance" - lol. I do, however, really enjoy the "story" ones. You meet a "knowing one", who seeks your help in destroying the Diva because her singing affected affected the audience. Before he can speaking, he is also grabbed, by whitish-grey matter ................... and arms! OH NO! The Diva drains the life energy out of her audience. She's been banned from other towns and cities that recognized the danger associated with her. As a result, she went into exile ........ until .......... now. This is amazing game! Fun, interactive games, suspenseful storyline. But, the rumor mill, water cooler crowd, gossip-mongers, what have you (people I trust, in other words), say this game is way too short. So, for ME, it's not a purchase. But, I encourage everyone to play the demo and make your own decision. Enjoy! October 10, 2014
Expected More I love ERS games, usually, sat down to play this one expecting it to take a while to finish, was surprised how quick i finished it!! As usual the graphics and sound were good, but it was not challenging enough. The puzzles were easy, the hidden objects were very easy to find. There was no running back and forth, which i suppose was in it's favour.But overall i was disappointed with this one.If you just want a game to pass a couple of hours this is it.A few of the puzzles are similar to ones i have seen in other ERS games, which i have to admit, i enjoyed doing. October 15, 2014
More please... I really enjoyed this one - the challenges and the way to find and use objects were different and interesting. The story had great potential and it looked beautiful. But it was way too short!!! I found myself thinking "is that it, am I at the end already??" (and it wasn't just because I had got so caught up that I didn't want it to end, like in some games), and that was disappointing. So, interesting but short... March 11, 2015
find out why you r friend kate was taken there is a custom level and an interactive map. you have been invited to visit to hear "diva" sing by your friend kate. you get there and kate is taken by some force. every time you get near her she is taken again. something wants her in particular. there is something going on with "diva" when she sings and kate was warned not to go to the concert but she didn't get the message. you are searching for the truth and trying to save kate before something awful happens to her. sequel...yeah, i feel am sure. December 20, 2015
Don't listen to her voice! A fun game to play! Dare you listen to this Diva?s tunes? What?s going on and why? Will the warning be delivered in time? Will you save the day? An all round good game I thought. July 28, 2015
Great graphics, but... Technically this is a great game. There weren't any bugs and player controls are steady; there aren't any of those fiddly click/drag problems. ERS has done its usual fantastic job with the artwork: drawings and actual animation are tops. Static/textbox "dialogue", so no out-of-sync lip movements to disturb that impression. The downside: The important characters each have one face, no matter what is happening; only Kate has 2. Sound: The environmental sounds change abruptly and were often grating. The music is repetitive and doesn?t really match anything. The voices are only ok. The male helper is almost whispering. Kate, in particular, sounds half asleep, definitely not frightened/excited. Maybe that?s just as well, because Kate spends about 1/4 of the game play standing on the opera house staircase (Face 2) being threatened by boggles while you, the detective, stumble around the same 5-6 scenes trying to get stuff to complete pictures, locks, etc. When you finally find enough jewels to deal with the boggles, Kate has apparently gone quietly to her seat inside the theater (Face 1). The whole game is like that. There are 5-6 sets of scenes, each with a multitude of broken/ blocked/ locked/incomplete things. You search/collect/fix/complete/open and then move on (mostly with an empty inventory). So while there is a lot of backing and forthing, it is within a set of scenes, with rare backtracking to an earlier set. And you don?t carry stuff around for long, a plus. Downside: that means you throw utility items away?HOW many boxes of matches? I was playing full screen, and map indicators were VERY hard to see. When I clicked on a major ?place? and squinted really hard, I could see task completion or task action indicators. Clicking on the Map often just triggered Hints. Hints simply point the way to the next place where action was needed. None of this was really an issue. After I figured out the game play, I was rarely stymied. I had the Walk-through, but used it only for 3 puzzles. A plus for me: The puzzles were numerous and some were moderately challenging. There were a couple of puzzle variations I have not encountered. One let me select Casual or Hard. A few of the puzzles had Reset, and Directions, but many did not. One I found impossible, because after I finally figured out the unusual way the pieces moved, I already had the wrong sequence of movements going. There was no way of reaching the solution without Reset so I Skipped it. HOS sparkles were almost hysterical in their intensity! The often-repeated HOS were less numerous than the puzzles (fine by me), were bright and not particularly cluttered. I appreciated the HOS interactivity and other-than-list variations, but those seemed to peter out by the end of the game. There weren?t any of those off-the-wall item names, and items mostly fit the time period, though there were some slips towards the end. The Match-2 was an easy HOS alternative when my tired eyes could not find the last couple of items. Glad I waited for the SE. This was too short a game for CE prices. I?ll keep this for another more play-through? with no hysterical sparkles or near-invisible map indicators. October 14, 2014
JUST GOOD ENOUGH BASED ON DEMO ONLY: This seems to be one of the best of the offerings we've had lately, at least for me. Playing on the easiest level, the hint and skip buttons filled quickly enough, although I do wish this developer would give players a choice of custom settings as some others have done. I did run across a couple of mini-games that gave no instruction nor could they be skipped, but those were straightforward enough to figure out what to do. I thought the game was a bit clunky at times, especially following the cut scenes. I think some fishies will find this game too easy for their tastes, but I'm happy to have a game that doesn't involve fairies, talking piggy banks, nor HOS that cause me to go blind looking for objects.
