Danse Macabre: Curse of the Banshee Collector's Edition is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Based on completed game (info on bonus content) The SE portion of the game took me 3 hours The CE bonus took me 40 min. Souvenir Room 6 min (unlocks after bonus play ends) Total gameplay- 3 hrs. 46min. I play all of these games on custom mode at an average pace. I always use the stopwatch on my phone when I’m playing. I try to complete the minigames but will skip them the minute I become frustrated. I’m just showing how I play because it could take you more or less time. Due to the less than stellar reviews on this game I wasn’t sure I wanted it at first after the demo. I bought it as a second CE in a buy one get one sale. I’m so glad I did. This is my new favorite game by Eipix. This game gets better and better after the demo and I had so much fun spending time in beautiful Ireland. Most of the scenes are in gorgeous outdoor locations. I would normally pick off a couple of rating pegs for this sad story (a tad too sad) but the fact there were no fantasy monsters or bizarre things in a mystery genre made me add them back. This game should have had a different title. Maybe, “Dance Macabre/ Mystery of the Irish Troupe”. I wonder where in the world “banshee” came from and believe it or not, I didn’t even demo the game for a while because I thought it would have a wailing banshee. Fear not, there is no annoying wailing creature of any kind anywhere in this game, thank goodness!! I’ve noticed the graphics by Eipix have improved dramatically since the last MCF The Black Veil. The graphics are drawn with computer assist and they were clear, with deep shadowing & just enough saturation plus the colors were great. Most of the game is played at night with dancing fireflies and added touches of various effects & lighting- such as dropping leaves that did not wash out or dull a scene. By Chapter 6, dawn breaks the horizon with splashes of pink and gold in the sky. The indoor scenes were also done with care. I kept saying “Ooh, and Aaah” with each new scene. There are stained glass windows streaming the sun, a library I wish I could live in, a beautiful garden and even a mansion with a lily pond. However, I didn’t like how the characters speak in this game. I don’t mean voice acting, I mean- The character remains in the scene with blinking eyes and no lip movement, and a talking head is on one end of a text box whenever someone speaks. I just prefer when they speak from within the scene or are zoomed in on the face/head area with a blurred background. I found it distracting to have the actual character still standing in the scene without moving at all. REMARKABLE MG & HOS- Chap. 2 has a HOS with matching the interior of various snow globes to a written pamphlet descriptive. Chap. 2 also has a great HOS with an aerial scene of a group of people holding colorful umbrellas. Chap. 3 had a MG I liked where you have a note and first you compare writing comparisons between 2 text items and the second part was to compare letters in each. There is a great narrated HOS at the train station in Chap.3. In Chap.4 pg.3 you find a photo album where you must locate the highlighted words in these photos. It had multiple pages and it was so realistically done. You learned more of the story and connected with the photos/characters and I thought it was brilliant. Chapter 4 also has an aerial type maze over a garden that you must direct your character past baddies through, in 3 different scenes. It was really addicting and not easy by the 3rd one. The end of chapter 5 had a good dexterity type “fight” scene where you must bypass several moving swords and accumulate several light spots. MUSIC- is also beautifully done. Several tracks are haunting, with harps and bagpipes. Some of the songs reminded me of the movie Titanic. There are 9 downloadable tracks and each is longer than most gaming DL. They are tracks you actually want the CE content for. I saw two composers that created the music & it is way cool that you can hit a pause button during the credits to see them. BONUS PLAY: I play the same character in bonus that I was in the main game, Shannon’s daughter. This time, I must save, Cillian my cousin, and get us both safely to my parents friend, Robert Flannigan who also has a dance company we hope to dance in. There are 8 areas to play in bonus. 3 areas are very slightly revised OLD AREAS, and there are 5 NEW AREAS. There are 4 HOS (2 are only list finds in secondary windows), there are 4 more MG. COLLECTIBLES- You continue collecting the signs in each new scene & the morphs in the HOS into the bonus play. The signs you collect also end up in their own scene that unlocks after bonus play. Bonus play is shorter than most CE’s & took me just shy of 40 minutes. TO GAGE THE LENGTH OF BONUS PLAY: The demo was Chapter 1 (this demo took me exactly 45 minutes to finish), and takes up 7 pages of the WTG…..and the bonus play is 6 pages long. This game has 6 chapters, & a bonus chapter and the WTG is 35 pages total. SOUVENIR ROOM: Unlocks after you finish bonus play. You reopen each of the 30 gorgeous scenes in this game and hunt for one object in the scene. They end up on two shelves in a scene within extras. It took me 6 min. to do this. These are a couple of other games that come to mind that also had consistently beautiful outdoor gameplay in a specific country/location…. So instead of Ireland, maybe check out Tibet & China with these two games here at BFG. And both are more grounded/mystery genre, like this game. 1. Enigmatis 3- The Shadow of Karkhala (set in the Tibetan mountains) I’ll add a link… 2. Mythic Wonders: Child of Prophecy (also way better after the demo) Thank you BFG; and a huge thank you to Eipix ~ This is my new favorite game by you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toe Tapping Danse Macabre Based on completed game From the intro, the dagger-wielding lady in white to the very end - an absolutely delightful game! I enjoyed every minute of it, although the heatwave must have affected my brain and I got lost several times in mini-games. Some of them I found quite tricky, yet very entertaining. The story was very gripping and well told, graphics are fantastic, gameplay smooth. A shoutout for the HOPs, they were simply first class. The „umbrella hunt“ from the tower top was my favourite one, or was it the one where you have to find five music notes first and the xylophone plays a melody? I replayed all of them, several times, just because they were so brilliant. Details as „the unforgiving rose bush“, the lemon tree in the trailer, the „Honeymoon“ clue in the first HOP made this game another great gaming experience for me. The Bonus Chapter is a sequel to the main story. The happy ending was very pleasing and I really appreciate when all the threads run together. The music was not always up to my taste, I prefer tunes that are motivating and uplifting. I found some of the tracks were a bit on the tame side. But no real problem, I used the track „Cry of the Banshees“ whilst playing. This one kept me on my toes! Now I’m looking for an Irish tap dance centre in my surroundings, so I can practice what I have learned :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Screamin' Mimi, no. I remember this from the Beta checkups. Graphics are good. I feel it's easy to navigate through. I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is She A Bride Back From The Dead? Or A Mad Banshee? What ever she is, I am quite interested to find out. Eipix Entertainment provided another great fun game for me. This game holds a lot of suspense, and unanswered questions. While playing the demo, I could not help but to enjoy the Irish music, which added a matched flair to the Irish Step Dancers, and their title, "The Swift O'Connors," great fit. The graphics are great -- real eye candy. The morphing objects and the hidden collectible insignia were not too difficult to find, but still enjoyable. The puzzles were challenging just enough to hold my interest. The storyline is very good; almost original. This is really a fun game with one exception, which I agree with some of the other reviewers, that it ended rather quickly. I still had 34 minutes left to play, and I got up for a drink and came back. At any rate, I am still hooked on finding out what she is, and why she is doing what she's doing, so I will be purchasing this game in the near future. I think this is a good game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Very Enjoyable How refreshing to play a wonderful game with such crisp graphics. Everything in normal color. I enjoyed this demo very much and will be buying the CE for sure. The story line kept my interest. Even though the puzzles were not extremely challenging, I still enjoyed them. The demo seemed to be pretty short even with doing all the puzzles, it said I had 45 minutes left. Others give a much more in depth review, so I just wanted to say I really like the game and well worth the buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blarney? Maybe Or Not! I viewed the Sneak Peek of this game and it was very good and the Irish Step Dancing added something different to the theme. I'm sure the entire game will be of fine quality. The story is about the O'Connor family participating in a dance performance, but the fun and carefree evening is interrupted when Finn O'Connor believes he sees a banshee in the audience. He's pretty shaken up even though he could have imagined her. But why?? So that's the basis of our story and the beginning of trying to solve this very good mystery tale. The graphics and characters were excellent, as were the voice-overs. The colors were rich and beautiful. I loved the music! The puzzles and HOGs were very entertaining, with just the right amount of challenge. My favorite game was the one with putting the dance steps in correct position. I've always found the HOGs in my other Danse Macabre games to be very good and this game presented the same quality. The game itself however, I felt, was much better than a few of the previous ones. I didn't find many of the extras in my allotted time, but it didn't bother me. My main concern is always a good map, which we have here, and the strategy guide. Was happy to see the custom mode, as I always like to adjust the hint and skip. Since I am anxious to discover the connection between Finn O'Connor and the mysterious woman/banshee, I will definitely buy this game. I am sure it will not be a disappointment! God Bless....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EIPIX IS “STEPPING UP" THE PACE WITH THIS GAME 5 Chapter plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 38 pages OVERVIEW: Who is that veiled woman in white? Saints preserve us! Could it be a banshee wailing away to warn you of the impending death of one of the kin of Fin O’Connor? You are off to Clifden, Ireland to play the daughter of Finn. You and your whole family are part of an Irish Step Dance group, the Swift O’Connors. During the festival of Lunasa, this “banshee” appears, sitting in the audience, unnerving your father. Although your father is wearing his medallion to protect himself from the likes of this “banshee,” you think it is pure blarney. You believe she is a flesh-and-blood woman up to some shenanigans, perhaps even involved with your own kin. Wander around the town of Clifden searching for clues to discover of mystery behind this “banshee” and what she is up to. You will need to “be on your toes” and open your eyes and ears as to solve the mystery behind this “banshee,” before tragedy entraps your family. EIPIX is “stepping up” the pace with this game. It is not as outstanding as some former games from EIPIX; however, it is a decent game, and for me, much better than their last two games. It has an excellent story which kept my interest along with excellent gameplay. It is missing that boring back-and-forth motion from their previous games. The demo is not very long, so it is difficult to ascertain the quality of this game; however, it did pique my interest enough to purchase it. The graphics are beautiful capturing the spirit of Irish Step Dancing. HOP SCENES: There are only four in the demo, including a creatively designed scene with items to locate listed on a newspaper. There is also a mini-HOP scene searching for a small number of one item. The standard EIPIX scene returns which involves locating five of two items following by a list of items. Finally, there is a silhouette scene. PUZZLES: Most in the demo are multiple-step ones. They are creatively designed and easy. One of them is a multiple-step one using dance steps which you move into location and then click on them as they come cascading down a board. There is a rotating tiles puzzle to create an image, a matching puzzle with musical notes, an extremely easy mathematical puzzle involving ropes and a tracing puzzle which also uses a rope. LEVELS: Easy, Medium, Hard, Custom Hints: 10 to 120 seconds Skips: 10 to 400 seconds EXTRAS: Map is provided as you play the game 14 Achievements – Some with 3 parts Collect 38 Note signs 14 Morphing objects within the HOP scenes Replay 14 HOP scenes and 19 puzzles along with Match-3 game 8 Wallpapers, 4 Concept Art, Music, Videos, Souvenir Room, HERE ARE THE DETAILS (SPOILERS) FOR THOSE WANT MORE INFORMATION ON THE HOP SCENES AND PUZZLES IN SEQUENCE HOP SCENES: You can play a Match-3 game in lieu of the scene. (A) List of items in BOLD letters on a newspaper. (B) Mini-HOP scene. Locate 6 wheel stokes. (C) Standard EIPIX HOP scene. Locate 5 of two items which opens a list of items to locate. (D) Silhouette. PUZZLES: They are all easy A. Multiple step. (1) Maze puzzle. Unique puzzle in which you move numbered feet into proper sequence on a stage floor. (2) Physical puzzle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHO IS THE VEILED WOMAN IN THE WHITE DRESS? IS SHE REAL OR A GHOST? Does Finn O’Connor truly see a banshee in the audience of his dance performance or is it just his imagination? This is only one of the questions you must answer as you play this excellent new Danse Macabre game – Curse of the Banshee. Curse of the Banshee is the eighth game in the series and from what I played in the demo, it promises to be an excellent game. Because I really want to know about Finn’s relationship with the woman in white the game is an instant buy for me. Technical aspects of the game include excellent graphics and realistic voiceovers and soundtrack. There are four modes of gameplay including the custom level where hints recharge in a range of 10 to 120 seconds and puzzle skips can be set in a range of 10 to 400 seconds. Your tools include an interactive map that you acquire early in the game. The HOP scenes are varied and excellent although there is nothing new. I found the scenes interesting to play and very well crafted with maybe a few new touches. However, if you don’t enjoy searching for items in the HOPS, there is an alternate match-3 game available. The puzzles were excellent and included some that I haven’t seen before. It is always fun to come across a puzzle in a HOPA game that is something new because it presents a new challenge to the game. Even though many of the puzzles are those we often see, they are still fun to solve. Generally when I play a demo I will use the skip button if I don’t want to chew up time but I didn’t skip any puzzle during the demo this time. Some were entertaining so I didn’t mind chewing up the time. There are a couple of puzzles that I really enjoyed – one was getting the dance steps in the correct position and another was to repair a wooden bridge. The game includes 14 HOPS and 19 puzzles. If you prefer the CE version of a game, this one includes: Collectibles and Morphing objects to find, as well as achievements to earn. The remainder of the extra content is fairly standard with a bonus chapter, 37- page strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, music, replay of HOPS and puzzles, and a souvenir room. Sometimes the Danse Macabre games are hit and miss but the last two games have been quite good. I think that Curse of the Banshee is one that I might enjoy more than the others in the series. I rather like the Irish theme to the game and the folk tales that may evolve during gameplay. Even though I am sure this will be a game I will enjoy, please try the demo to see if this one is for you. Happy gaming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Based on the entire game plus bonus game. I found this game to be very interesting. I loved most of the game and the bonus game. I did NOT think I would like this game from the demo. Like I have always told all of you, you can NOT judge all games by the demo! I have hundreds of games and I take a chance when they go on sale. MOST end up to be great and some NOT so great. What I did NOT like was the back and forth that most of these games have. Yet, the story was a tear jerker, that is, if you're a mother! I don't like to give too much of the story away but, because of all the low ratings on most reviewers that ONLY played the demo: I shall give some things away. A man and a woman were betrayed for the sake of the troupe. This man and woman suffered for other peoples, selfishness. Very interesting story all the way to the end. Bonus chapter tells what happens after the fact...I hope I did NOT spoil too much of the story. I don't buy CE's for all the extras but do like the bonus chapter. CE's went on sale last weekend, two for the price of one and when you are a game club member...even a lot more cheaper! So, I bought this game and Witches' Legacy Covered By The Night CE. Huge surprise, Witches Legacy: Covered By The Night, became great after the demo...even, a big surprise about one of the main characters, to boot! Hope this review helps those that are in doubt...
