Danse Macabre: A Lover's Pledge is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't miss What an excellent game. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline. The puzzles and hidden objecst were well thought out. Long story especially for a standard version of a game. I thoroughly recommend. Please try.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Not All Bad.. This is posted after playing the entire game. I think probably I'm being kind with thie review, but it really wasn't all that bad of a game. It kept me entertained for a cold FL afternoon and that's all that mattered to me. Yes, the quality, as compared to the other games in this series, was really low. I don't know if Eipix has a new set of designers or what, but it wasn't what I expected. I read so many reviews that were negative and I thought this is a great series. It can't be that bad and it wasn't. I did enjoy it. The biggest thing about the game were the graphics. They were really dull. I think the term cookie cutter would fit here. Normally I'm drawn to the graphics and will search each scene to see what all is there. Not with this game. A house was a house and a train was a train all with no frills. I didn't have a problem at all with the characters. I was surprised they were as good as they were. Voice overs were very well done. I do wish I had turned the music down a bit more. It started grating on my nerves. The map was a must. It was really difficult for me to follow where I needed to go next. It did a great job showing where there was something to do and then transported me there. Hidden objects were simple and unfortunately repetitious. By that I mean, find 3 of this and 3 of that. Not my cup of tea. The mini games were really simple. I did most of them and I know my patience level hasn't increased so I'm guessing they were easy. The story was well told. I didn't have a problem with it. The plot was easy to follow and I didn't get lost in the twists and turns. Could be because there weren't any I can recall. Give the demo a try. Keep in mind, this is not like the others in this series. If you do that, you might like it more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Opera and Love Ends in Death The first bit of the game shows a man walking, only to be attacked and presumably murdered (if the "hint" means anything...and he's a ghost...). Then we move forward to the opera. We meet Julia Belmont, who's performing in honor of her sister, Andrea, who committed suicide after her love was killed. Insert accidents and a death and we must investigate and learn the truth of what happened. We must set the spirit(s) free. The praise I have for this game is that the visuals were lovely. The sounds was decent and the the hidden object scenes were/puzzles were simple enough. They even had a alternate method (a matching game) if you didn't want to complete the hidden object scenes, which was fun. Complaints... the story was... well, it was okay. We soon learn that the spirit is the murdered love of Julia's deceased sister, Andrea. They insert a "somehow you are transported away from the "opera house" and to the former home of Mr. Belmont, the now deceased father of Andrea and Julia. We never see Julia again after helping her, before the teleport happens. We don't see her even at the end, though she's mentioned by Diego, the spirit, as he pledges about stuff. The game also states stuff like we already knew it, but we had not learned it prior to that. Diego? Who's Diego? Oh, that's the guy we saw get attacked earlier and was Andrea's love. Wait, Mr. Belmont sent Andrea away? When did we learn that? Not to mention that Diego goes nuts, even after he learns Julia isn't her sister, stating that if you don't find something for him in an hour, both you and Julia will die. He also wanted proof that Julia wasn't Andrea/that Andrea was also dead... and we found it, but never gave it to him... Overall, I liked the game mostly for the visuals/sound and a bit of the story. If you're interested in this game, I suggest playing the demo first...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ~~A LOVER'S PLEDGE IS IN NEED OF FINE TUNING!~~ Danse Macabre used to be an exciting series, with its sophisticated storylines and extravagant production. Things started to shift when Eipix chose to focus on quantity over quality when it comes to this once-promising franchise, A Lover’s Pledge is the third Danse Macabre game in 2017 – and the compromise shows. In this sequel, you play as a seamstress who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. You found yourself in the middle of a major drama when the lead actress from the opera show got kidnapped by a ghost, can you save her and yourself from this haunted theater? The storyline of Danse Macabre: A Lover’s Pledge is filled with HOPA cliches. From the vengeful spirit to the kidnapped performer, everything is just so predictable, even the alleged “twists” are not interesting anymore. It is no surprise that the gameplay in Danse Macabre: A Lover’s Pledge is of the recycled type. While there is a lot of tasks and interactions to perform in each location, the challenge level is dumb down by how simple and boring these tasks are. Not to mention, that some tasks are far from being logical and that a few objects are placed in irrational places. Eipix is usually pretty reliable with its high production values. However, the sights and sounds in Danse Macabre: A Lover’s Pledge does not exactly impress. Even though the overall quality of the visuals is still high, the basic artwork and the washed-out colors are not to Eipix’s usual high standards. The background music is pleasant enough, but the voice-acting is sometimes slightly awkward and inappropriately dramatic. Rolling in at the three and a half hour mark, Danse Macabre: A Lover’s Pledge is a tad short of the standard length for a premium HOPA. I hope Eipix game developers will listen to reviewers so that this series continues...Cheers!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The dangerous spectre can destroy the opera with my blessing.. This game is dire...all the characters are wooden and lifeless, in fact, the game is soul-less.I was looking to play a free game on this first day of 2018 but even I couldn't do that...much happier resurrecting some of the great games from the good old days, particularly Witches Legacy..so good and well-made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PHANTOM OF THE OPERA WITHOUT A PLOT When I played the demo in the Collector's Edition version, I was skeptical that the plot would thicken afterwards. I needed another game for a BOGO sale, and since I had already purchased most of the games this month, I decided to take a chance on A Lover's Pledge, after all, many of the games in this series are pretty decent. Well, I'm sorry to report, that after several attempts to finish this game, I simply can't do it! At first glance, the graphics appear to be stellar, but if you really pay attention to the detail, there isn't any detail. The buildings are plain Jane and basic, the decorations, shrubbery, plants and trees lack definition , the statues, the sky, the rooms, have no texture or intricate patterns to give them depth. A bell looks the same as a vase both in and out of my inventory. The objects within the HOP's are at times difficult to find, not because they are well hidden, but because it's hard to tell the difference between a scoop and a sickle, they are cartoonish looking and blurry. The biggest problem however, isn't with blah looking graphics, the problem is with the plot. Actually, I should say the lack of a plot, because this storyline is stretch far too thin. This is just another example of how 5 meaningless chapters, are far worse than 3 epic chapters. I kept forgetting what the story was about, and how this character related to that character, which is bad, really bad when playing a game that doesn't allow you to hit a rewind button! I gave up, perhaps too soon, but my intuitions say probably not. Just in case you may be able to stick with it, here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version, if either is right for you: This game is so boring I don't even know what the story is about! Through sheer boredom, I either muddled through the demo on autopilot, or they have done a terrible job of relaying the plot. A Lover's Pledge? I met two women and a ghost in the demo, Julia Belmont and Clementine Lambert. The third character, Andrea Belmont had already committed suicide, so who pledged their love to whom is a mystery to me! One things for sure, I'm a Master Costume Designer, how exciting. Danse Macabre is sliding down a slippery slope, one game at a time. The first few games in the series were really good, and they received a 4.4 average rating. By 2016 they slipped under the 4 star ratings, and by the end of 2017 the games are nearing the base of the slope as they dip dangerously close to average ratings below 3 stars. The truth of the matter is that this dev produces nothing but cookie cutter games, same story, same HOP's, same MG's, same Hidden Signs, same features, same graphics. Lover's Pledge has everything you'd expect, it's predictable, and it's just more of the same with a different title. Of course the Collector's Edition has 30 Hidden Signs, all Eipix games have Hidden Signs, and it's a feature that becomes so boring to look for after just a few scenes, that you don't care if you look for them or not. There's no challenge in finding them, they stick out like a sore thumb, and they aren't used for anything, they don't unlock special features, they just are what they are, "here's your sign". Other than a handful of Wallpapers and a Strategy Guide (which you won't need, it's an easy game) the only bling you get with the CE version are those not so hidden signs, unless you count a Bonus Chapter as a plus. (which surely is just another chapter of boredom) The Hidden Object Scenes are located in boring scenes with boring items to search for. The only HOP remotely interesting, was finding multiples of objects that pertain to a riddle, at least you have to think about what you're looking for. There are the standard, Interactive List Finds, Progressive Interactive Silhouetted Shape finds, Multiples of Objects finds, and Riddle Description finds. Some of the HOP scenes are repeated in the same location, something Eipix never did before, but have been doing so in the last few games offered, a feature most gamers hate because it's too boring a second time around! The good news is that there is an alternative Match 3 game to play, the bad news is that it's not a great Match 3 game. The Mini Games are just okay, neither bad nor good, and certainly nothing new offered. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Click on pie shaped sections in the correct sequence as demonstrated. 2) Guide the ball through the maze to the center using directional arrows. 3) Complete the decoration by dragging sections of the decoration to empty slots. 4) Move all tokens to the frame located in the center, by selecting numbered buttons on each row and column, to push the tokens a specified number of spaces on the grid. 5) Arrange the four colored switches between their matching circles on the right by dragging groups of switches along the wheel or across the bar.
