Dark Parables: Queen of Sands Collector's Edition is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Had Forgotten How Much I Love Dark Parables While my favorite will always be The Exiled Prince, this game made me remember what I love so much about these games. The game was just beautiful, and, with fountains running everywhere, it was kind of like a therapy session. The artwork is spectacular, and the hidden object scenes are even more challenging that they were the last time I played. I found myself looking forward to each fragmented object scene--more than I recall in the past. The soundtrack was also really nice. I played the complete Collector's edition, plus the bonus chapter. Gameplay was pretty long, and I spent several hours playing over the weekend. I found it difficult to stop playing and go to bed. :) I kept thinking, "Just a little further, and I'll stop for the night." There are morphing objects in each scene. In the CE extras, you get wallpaper, the soundtrack, a few concept art images, and collectables.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sands of time I loved this game. I am still trying to find some of the "morphs". Great maps. Different types of puzzles make this interesting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shackled By One Man's Dreams I have always been a fan of the Dark Parable series, purchasing each and every parable that was released sight unseen.....until everything changed including the devs. Dark Parables has always been a nonlinear type game, where an action in one scene activates a feature with a previous scene. DP are famous for their clever Morphing Objects, and they were difficult to "see" because you had to complete an action in one scene and then return to previous scenes to look for the Morphs, but you never knew which action would actually trigger the reaction! Dark Parables are also famous for their FROG's, beautiful scenes with fragments of three sections of an item that will combine to complete a single inventory item. This part hasn't changed, but the music that accompanied each fragment found has changed, and I missed it dearly, it was a recognizable and distinguished sound. Queen of Sands is an excellent game, but it just doesn't feel like a Dark Parables game because the devs are straying away from all the features that made DP such an enjoyable series. Collectible Parables are another famous feature of this series, several items are required to complete each parable story. When a group is complete, you will get to play a short tale about that parable. The parable items can Morph, so keep alert. There are collectible Herald of Montafleur's, hidden throughout the game, for a total of 39, one in each scene. This Collector's Edition also has 12 Achievements to earn, mostly the usual achievements such as using the map or finding objects quickly in the FROG's. Dark Parables is all about the Emblems. Every door, and just about everything else will require at least one emblem to open it. Therefore, you will scour each location looking for the correct emblem, often traveling back and forth several times as you try to accomplish each objective. Several inventory items are plus items requiring you to combine that item with another item or putting broken pieces back together. This Collector's Edition has Concept Art, and Wallpapers (within the Art Gallery), replayable Mini Games and FROG's (play against the clock for a better score) collectible Parables (morphs), collectible Herald of Montafleur's, a Souvenir Room, Bonus Video's, Movies, beautiful Music, Achievements, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter (The Seven Ravens) Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully done! Others have stated the details so I'll pass on that. This is a lovely visually beautiful game. It's also great to see the HO scenes done this way again. The items are well hidden and to me that makes it more of what a hidden object scene should be. The artwork that goes into these games is astounding. The glitch of the recorder in the beginning "What a HOOT" I wonder if they were seeing if anyone was watching?!! Have a try you might find it fun too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too Enjoyable! The game has beautiful graphics, and I feel it's quite challenging. I miss the music quality from the earlier DP games though. I thought the DP series was over after Little Mermaid and the Purple Tide, but I was excited and happy to see another DP game!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too awesome, shut up and take my money! I do not simply give 5 stars, but this game really blew my socks off. I only played 2 chapters off the game at the moment, but it already appealed to me, the first time that has ever happened to any Dark Parables games. It definitely worths a try. DP 9 for the win. I really liked the arts and voiceovers in the game, and also the puzzles. They are reasonably playable :) To all casual game lovers out there, this is a must-try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Game I love this series and these developers. Glad to see that they are finding new ways to keep us all challenged. The familiar puzzles have new twists. The hidden object games create objects that are actually used in the game, not just collected for an animated narration of the story. So, give it a try! I'm not sure why there are any disappointed players. Perhaps Big Fish has spoiled us? :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful game! I enjoyed very second of this game great storyline, Frogs and puzzles. I'm glad that Eipix has taken over from Blue Tea Games and continued the series I'm also glad that Eipix put more of the Blue Tea Games effects like the chapters coming up. I only wish they put the FROGS into the SG so people can find the pieces more easily instead of using hints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! From what i see, the working together of Blue Tea with Eipix is a very good relationship. This game is for me the best of the serie's so far! Interesting story, nice twist that one gets the red riddinghoud attached, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful graphics - not so delicate elaborated as the first installments, but just this makes them better and not worse. It feels as if Eipix has sharpened the lense and therefore the games are now not only good, but great!!! Thanks for the joy of playing:-)
