Dark Tales?: Edgar Allan Poe's The Mystery of Marie Roget Collector's Edition 4.1 5 51 51
A Mystery Only Detective Dupin Could Solve Only Edgar Allen Poe can write a book this suspenseful, and only Dark Tales can convert those stories into a suspenseful thriller Hidden Object Adventure. Detective Auguste Dupin's investigative skills have been requested by an old friend, Jacque, who's not sure what to make of his wife's strange behavior. Shortly after their marriage, Marie Roget became depressed and strange things occurred throughout the house, floors creak, the sound of a woman weeping can be heard all night, and anything made of glass, shatters! Even Batman needs his Robin, so naturally Detective Dupin needs your help to solve this mystery, The Mystery of Marie Roget! Jacque's grandmother had given him a Magic Mirror, and once you discover this mirror, it becomes a vital piece of equipment to your investigation. Any inventory item that has a checkmark, can be combined with this mirror to reveal it's original origin. Even a threatening note written to Marie, and found in the fireplace, badly burned and illegible can be restored! Personally I think magical items should be saved for fairy tales and otherworldly games. There are two pull down tabs at the top left and right, one to access the Achievements you have earned, the other accesses your Aquarium which gets decorated with the Morphing Creatures you locate during the game. There is a circular icon located on the bottom left next to the inventory bar which allows you to access your Notes, a Map, your Badge, the Menu and the Strategy Guide as well. The Hidden Object Scenes are mostly interactive list finds, however some of the scenes are repeated in the same scene with different items to find. I was disappointed with this feature because in my opinion, the second time around is boring and to easy. The mini games aren't complicated at all, with mostly small puzzles such as remembering codes in a correct order, or placing books in the correct order according to associated symbols on the binder and the bookshelf. The Collectors edition has Collectible Morphing Creatures, Achievements, Movies, Wallpapers, Concept Art, Screen Savers, replayble Mini Games and Hidden Object Scenes, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

We got a winner! This one I am truly loving. And I love Dupin's VO again. No, I don't hear the English, but this one fits him well. The VO's of all actors are done really well. And tidbit of info for me not knowing his first name was Auguste. If it ever was mentioned, blond moment for me. Also so far I had a few jump out of your seat moments. Love it! lol. There is 16 morphers for collectibles and your achievements. No animal helpers that I ran into yet. I do love them, but I think this series doesn't have them. Story: We are trying to unravel the story of Dupin's friend Jacque and his wife Marie. Marie went missing supposedly, and we are trying to help Jacque locate her. We were on our way to see her Grandmother Madam Roget but she was of no help and it's like she is hiding something. When we were eavesdropping it sound like granny was talking to Marie or was she? The mystery unfolds and am curious to see where it leads. Graphics: Awesome ERS style. Couldn't be better. Music: Fits the game beautifully and adds to the suspense. Mini Games: Not too hard or easy. Just fun! H0GS: So far I only ran into the list type with the extra step words. Map: Has the red exclamation points for your indicators, a top hat for 'You are here', and a green checkmark for the areas completed. It is also a jump map. Hint Button: Tells you where you can go next and which item needs to be used on the scene as well as in the H0GS. Again Kudos to the team for a very well done game! Thank you! February 19, 2015
Return to Paris To Solve A "Mystery Within a Mystery" In a "Phantasmatic" Cliffhanger A "must have" five-star whodunit from the GamERS for all mystery enthusiasts . Detective Dupin, is back in a spellbinding ghost story - a mystery within a mystery. The storyline keeps the gamer guessing. It is more puzzle oriented with only three HOP scenes in the demo. There are nine puzzles - one of which allowed you to choose between Hard and Casual modes. The graphics are beautifully done with muted colors and life-like characters. There are four levels of play, morphing objects to fill an aquarium, achievements and the use of a magic mirror to add a nice extra touch. To me, this is the BEST one of the series so far and will purchase immediately! I want to know what happened and not going to wait for a sale! HERE ARE THE DETAILS BASED ON A CLIFFHANGER DEMO: BE WARNED - YOU WILL WANT TO PURCHASE THIS GAME AFTER PLAYING THE DEMO: You play the assistant to the ever handsome, Detective Dupin. Dupin has been contacted by his college friend, Jacque who is now married to Marie Rogt, the daughter of the owner of a famous bakery. She has been acting strangely and the house itself seems possessed by some unearthly presence demonstrated by apparitions and unearthly sounds. Something or someone seems to be upsetting Marie; however, she is not divulging the cause of her angst. She may be in danger, being stalked by a dark sinister character. You must collect all the loose ends and tie them together before you can solve this case. Tied to this mystery is the theater manager, Leblanc, and the death of his ballerina girlfriend, Lola Saunie, surprisingly a virtual "lookalike" of Marie. What happened to this dancer and how does this all relate to Jacque's wife, Marie? Marie's inheritance is at stake and blackmail also adds to the intrigue of this case. Why is the ghost of Lola Saunie haunting her Marie? Who is stalking Marie? This case will leave you "hanging" at the end of a suspenseful cliff at the end of the demo. HERE ARE THE DETAILS FROM THE DEMO: LEVELS: Casual (Sparkles) Advanced, Hard, Customized Each vary with amount of time for penalties, hints and skips. Skips and hints are timed from 5 seconds to 200 seconds. GRAPHICS: Beautiful as usual for this dev, including mouth movement for the characters. Muted pastels and so well-done. Almost like a work of art. INVENTORY: It is NOT interactive NOR puzzle-like. However, is locking and I believe if it were puzzle-like it would be overkill as this game has so many puzzles. HOP SCENES: Somewhat interactive and puzzle-like. In the demo I encountered: A & B. A list of items in a closet. Same closet is used again for a second HOP scene. C. HOP scene is a carousel with well hidden images. Nicely done devs PUZZLES: They are varied with differing levels of difficulty. There is a choice between CASUAL and HARD for some puzzles. In the demo, I encountered: A. Pushing 4 symbols in correct sequence on a clock B. Matching cultural books with appropriate symbols for those cultures C. Opening a lock by pressing 4 symbols in correct sequence D. Choice in difficulty in creating a picture in a variation of as tile placement puzzle for a box. E. Variation of a gear puzzle and movement of a ball along rotating slides to open a lock F. Variation of mah-jong using barrels G. Variation of a maze puzzle involving a ball to move keys to exit point H. Opening up a safe with the help of the magic mirror for a combination I. Variation of jigsaw puzzle with a poster EXTRA GOODIES: A. Interactive map is provided at the beginning of the game B. Your very own detective badge and you didn't even have to purchase any cereal C. 15 Morphing objects to end up in your aquarium (What I counted) D. 12 Achievements plus an additional achievement if you collect all to gain access to an additional mini-game E. Magic mirror to answer questions about items in your inventory F. Strategy Guide I RATE THIS GAME 6 MAGIC MIRRORS OUT OF 5 MAGIC MIRRORS. HOPEFULLY THE EXTRA MIRROR WILL HELP YOU SOLVE THIS SOMEWHAT COMPLEX MYSTERY. OTHER GAMES IN THE SERIES: Some have asked to list the other games listed from the series: They are listed below: DARK TALES: EDGAR ALLAN POE'S: THE BLACK CAT DARK TALES: EDGAR ALLAN POE'S: MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE DARK TALES: EDGAR ALLAN POE'S: THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER DARK TALES: EDGAR ALLAN POE'S: THE GOLD BUG DARK TALES: EDGAR ALLAN POE'S: THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH DARK TALES: EDGAR ALLAN POE'S: THE PREMATURE BURIAL February 19, 2015
Dark Tales and Esgar Allen Poe - What More Could We Ask Warning: I am a die-hard fan of the Dark Tales games and know only a little about E.A.P. I mention this because I suspect those very familiar with his work would not be as enamored of these story-lines as I am. In my ignorance I find them fresh, charming, and enthralling. The animation is very good, the background ambiance and music is appropriate. The artwork is beautiful, neither too dark nor strangely colored. I find most of the characters interesting and their voices, while not always of the highest professional dramatic tenor, at least reasonable for the role. All that being said, I really enjoyed the game. Four levels of game-play including custom let you fine tune your difficulty level. There is enough of a story to carry you along with the detective and game-play does keep moving right along. The HOPs are somewhat interactive and objects are clearly drawn and sometimes cleverly hidden. Mini-games were varied and interesting. There are morphing objects to find, one of my favorite extras. And, oh happy day, there were no cute little animals in sight. Is it perfect? No. Is it fun and entertaining? Yes. And that would be why I play these games. Please try this one for yourself. Relax and enjoy. February 19, 2015
Review based on completed game The story has been described several times by previous reviewers, and in the game description itself, so I?m not going to repeat that. But the following are my thoughts on the rest of this fabulous game! PLAYER SETTINGS: Include: Casual, Advanced, Hard, and Custom ART AND GRAPHICS: Great graphics. Nothing dazzlingly over-colorful. Well -constructed, composed background settings. Beautiful lighting and shading creating a ?3D? world. Opulent houses, and olde worIde Paris alleyways. SOUND: The music is separated from the ambient sound! Hurray! And there is a separate voice volume. The music is appropriate. ATMOSPHERE: Mysterious atmosphere from the get-go, and I got that feeling immediately that said that this was a game that I was going to lose myself in for a while...Lovely magical night-scenes and sounds. HOPS: Slightly more than in more recent games, and I thoroughly enjoyed them: Mainly word lists, with minimal interaction, a few that are more interactive, some in which you place the image in the picture correctly, and finally, some in which you take the image out of the picture to match up with its silhouette. I really enjoyed these mixes. PUZZLES: Mosty very straight-forwards, but some a little more difficult. MORPHING OBJECTS: 16 Morphing objects to collect for an aquarium. BONUS CHAPTER: Bonus chapter as enjoyable as the main game, and continues the story. OTHER: Strategy guide, achievements, movies, wallpapers, collectibles, screensavers, music and replayable mini-games and HOS. February 19, 2015
EAP never fails to impress What can I say? EAP always raises the stakes and his new one is no different. Graphics are clear and concise; voices are good sound quality as are all the other features. The mini games and HO are splendid and would challenge the brightest of intellectuals. I bought it straight away, even before finishing it. A definite bonus addition to any avid collectors collection! February 19, 2015
The Poe series always delivers This newest Dark Tales is a fine example of what a developer can produce when it takes a good piece of literature and translates the novel into a delightful game. In the Poe tale, Marie Roget is a woman recently murdered and it is up to detective Auguste Dupin to solve the mystery. Of course, in the HOPAs he needs our help. Having only completed the demo to this point, I'm not sure how faithful the ERS game is to the Poe work. In past Dark Tales the 2 story lines are not very conflicting and the game maker surely must be given a certain degree of poetic license. In this edition of Dark Tales, the hidden object sections and the puzzles are fairly straightforward. I have always enjoyed that ERS sticks to a particular pattern and rarely deviates from it. This is part of what makes ERS on of the better game developers. The player knows what he/she is getting at all times. I have one minor gripe and it is minor . Being someone who speaks French it annoys me a bit when someone named Auguste is referred to as August in pronunciation that sounds like the month following July spoken by an English speaking person. The same can be said of Jacque being called Jack. These little things diminish the voice overs a tad. Excellent game, one soon to be added to my collection. I failed to notice any morphs or collectibles in the demo because I was that engrossed in the telling of the tale and the action in the game. I do recall seeing a fish tank that can be filled with items so I guess the collection is related to said tank. To me some of these extras are overrated. I'll get a CE version for 1 reason. I like the game and therefore want the bonus chapter. All the rest is fluff. Thanks ERS for another winning game. February 19, 2015
The Raven Returns! This Dark Tale is based upon a more obscure Poe tale, but that only makes it more interesting. Every tale in this series is well-done, and this is the sixth one, so if you haven't played the others, you will want to! The opening scene of Poe writing the story is a keeper! You once again are an assistant detective - with your own badge - to Auguste Dupin, who is summoned by his handsome friend Jacque to determine who is haunting his house and what is the problem with his new bride Marie Roget. Turns out Marie Roget is the niece of Madame Roget, who owns the Boulangerie Bakery, but has left the bakery in her will to the actress Lola Saunie, who looks just like Marie, but is unfortunately dead. You receive a Magic Mirror to help you decipher certain objects -- but it is not intuitive as to how it works. Good thing for the Strategy Guide! The map is also a bit vague -- one spot on the map represents the entire house of Jacque. The HOPS so far are only lists, and the mini-games are a bit familiar, but fun. My favorite was a mahjong puzzle. There are 16 morphing aquarium items to collect, and you must be patient because you can only collect the object when it has morphed. There is also a mini-game puzzle that unlocks if you collect all the items. You can also replay the mini-games and HOPs. The game has four modes, including custom. The best part of the game is the storyline. Try it and see! February 19, 2015
Best one yet I have purchased all the Dark Tales Edgar Allen Poe games and think this is the best one yet. Who is the real Marie Forget? Graphics were excellent. Voice overs, while Americanized, one would expect the Inspector to have a French accent, n'est pas, were good. Puzzles and HOS's were varied and some contained puzzles within puzzles. While usually I would take a couple of days to complete a game, this one was so compelling I finished both the main game and the bonus chapter in one very cold February afternoon. February 19, 2015
Poe's chilling tale brought to the gaming screen Thought I ought to wrtite a positive review for once.... I loved this demo - yes, it's got creepy scenes and spine-tingling moments but it was good to play and I will be buying it. Story by Poe was based on an actual murder; however, I am intrigued to see how they are going to explain away some of the phenonmena occuring in this game! Voiceover is good even though you have to click to progress through the speech. Some weird bits like why is Dupin locked in his friend's house?? But otherwise - lots of click and find, search and use some HOS. Challenge not too difficult but I would be wary of letting younger children anywhere near this- although with some of the stuff on Nick and children's TV I think I must be getting old and they could cope with this! Gameplay is good - story is excellent - what is going on?? Visually good - music not too intrusive- fun factor excellent Only managed to collect three collectibles- if you collect all the game seems to reward you with extra play! I will be buying this as I haven't read the story so I want to know what happens. February 20, 2015
