Dark Parables: Portrait of the Stained Princess is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the best dark parable games In my opinion Dark Parable game series are the best hidden object games around. Its not the colorful drawn graphics, or a good story line Its not even the great puzzles that I have to skip through as I don't have to much patience! It is the whole package that gives you good value for money, Hours of entertainment and lots of fun. Try any of the Dark Parable games you wont be disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PORTRAIT OF THE STAINED PRINCESS IS A TRIBUTE TO THOSE EARLIER DARK PARABLES GAMES Dark Parables Portrait of the Stained Princess is one of the best DP games to come along in several years. It takes me back to a time when the original developer of the series created some masterpiece games. At one time I waited for each new Dark Parables to be released as they were brilliant games but that all changed when the series was “farmed” out to a new developer. Gone were the gorgeous FROGS that sparkled with a luminescence that at times kept me enthralled as I played each scene. Now, with the Portrait of the Stained Princess the new developer has almost hit the mark with a game that is very reminiscent of those original Dark Parables. After playing the beta release for the Stained Princess I have been waiting to purchase the full game and I did as soon as it was released for sale. No second thoughts here as the game is wonderful and has captured everything I loved about those earlier games. My only TINY complaint is that some of the FROGS seemed a bit muddy and lacked the sparkle of those original scenes. It is minor because overall this game shows attention to detail and is a tribute to what made the Dark Parables games excellent. At this point, I’ve not yet completed the game but what I have played has kept me interested and wanting more. As with those earlier games, I imagine that this one will take several days to complete. I don’t want to skip any of the puzzles as I find them very good and not quite as easy as some might find them. Although I do enjoy puzzles, I am not fond of the brain-drain types and the ones in Portrait of the Stained Princess are perfect for me. The items in the FROGS are at times difficult to find and I have used the hint button once or twice. At times the items to find are large but for the most part they are well concealed within the cluttered scenes. Although some of the luster is missing the FROGS are still beautiful and enjoyable to play. Thank you to BFG and the developer for creating a Dark Parables game that is everything I hoped it would be. As always, please try the demo to see if Portrait of the Stained Princess is a game you will enjoy. Happy gaming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from THE BIG "E" HAS WORKED HARD TO MAKE THE LAST TWO GAMES SEEM MORE BLUE TEA-ISH ~ w/o the non-linear morphs of course :( ~ Completed Game approximately 6 hours (including completion of all mini-games & CE Bonus Chapter) Benno and Siegfried, two art apprentices stood in disbelief as the Princess stepped out of her portrait and exchanged places with Siegfried. Everyone has heard the story of the Stained Princess of Cisneros, a Princess cursed 300 years ago over a Forgotten Promise, a curse that won't be lifted until she remembers what that promise was, but the real mystery is whom she made the promise to! I've always loved the Dark Parables series, especially the original Blue Tea versions prior to this dev purchasing the franchise, because of 2 original Key Features, the FROG type of Hidden Object Scenes, and the Parables you collect (within the CE versions) to read 5 different Parables that elaborate more on key features of the story (The Ugly Duckling, The Water of Life, The Ugly Princess, White Swan, Black Swan, The Clan With No Hearts and in the CE Bonus Chapter, The Swan Knight and the Realm of Darkness) Clearly, Eipix has worked hard on the last 2 games in this failing series to bring back the Blue Tea nostalgia and let go of the Eipix-touch that just didn't fly with true Dark Parables fans, My biggest disappointment that disappeared along with BT was the incredible Non-linear Cursed Objects that didn't morph the first time you visited a location, it required a triggered action in another scene, but you never knew what or where! There are still Cursed Objects (21 in the CE version) but they aren't the clever non-linear Cured Objects beautifully created by the Master of Morphs, (Zhao) There are 16 FROGS (Fragmented Object Games) +3 within the CE Bonus Chapter. FROGS require you to search for several fragments that are shown in 3 separate groups. Once you find all the fragments in a section those fragments join together and the completed fragment sections will join to create a useful inventory item. There are only 16 Mini-Games spread over the 10 Main Chapters and another 4 within the CE Bonus Chapter. It seemed to me that they didn't bother being creative with the puzzles and focused all their energy on the FROGS. Below are brief descriptions of some of my personal favorites: 1-Rotate 3 plates with partial images to match the design shown when stacked. 2-Diorama puzzles that require interacting with several key features related to the story's paragraph. 3-Connect Tokens by the number of spaces next to them. 4-Rotate and connect identical colored pipes. CE BONUS CHAPTER: We play as Benno in this CE Bonus Chapter titled "The Knight's Name Taboo" It's not long before the recently freed Princess finds herself in dire need of a Knight in Shining Armor. Benno and Siegfried set out on a heroes' mission to rescue the kidnapped Princess. There are 4 Mini-Games and 3 FROGS (Fragmented Object Games) and you'll pick up the last 3 Cursed Objects and 13 Parables to unlock the final 2 Parables, The Swan Knight and The Realm of Darkness. Collector's Edition EXTRA'S: 8 Wallpapers (all with characters :( 6 Concept Art Pictures, 8 Music Soundtracks, 6 Movie Video Cutscebes, 12 Achievements, 19 Replayable Mini-Game Puzzles, 2o Replayable Hidden Object Scenes (which are actually FROGS) 10 Chapters +Bonus Chapter (The Knight's Name Taboo) and a Built-in Strategy Guide.
