Dark City: Budapest Collector's Edition is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fangs A Lot As others have noted this is a perfect Halloween game. I love this series and where else would one expect a plague of vampirism more than Budapest? Aspiring investigator Agatha has called in The Detective to assist her in solving a sanguinary crime involving, in part, her brother (note: never be the relative of a budding detective. Only bad things happen.) Pros: excellent graphics. As always with the Dark City games I was left wanting more exterior shots of a beautiful city. The ones on hand are very, very nice. Spooky atmosphere enhanced by some wonderful music. Engaging plot - is this real vampirism, or fake, or both? And if so, why? Agatha's complaint that women aren't allowed to be detectives is met by the fact that they can, and they can also be damsels in distress, and...and villains. Which will it be? Some nice references to vampiric lore - Inspector Helsing, indeed. Add Agatha's brother's cat Lester to the mix, a not-quite-assistant who turns up at opportune times. Cons: some minor annoyances. The sound is a little unbalanced as The Detective's voice comes booming out of speakers at a stentorian volume. Agatha's accent is from that part of Budapest that is closest to the American midwest, apparently. No one attempted a Hungarian accent, probably fortunately as Bela Lugosi has that one wrapped up for all time. Puzzles are a little on the easy side. Bonus game: here we play as Agatha, now fully occupied in her own detecting. It's a very good coda involving two of the other characters in the main game. Overall, a top-notch entry in a great series. I played it twice and can't get the music out of my head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh this is a good one! I really like this series and this game is the best of them all thus far. Some halloween themes thrown in with a good detective story. There are morphs and cards to collect and a side bar lets you know if you've found them all in each scene... a nice touch. Has a really good ending plus a great bonus chapter. I was able to do quite a few of the puzzles and I'm not a puzzle person. I loved the HO scenes too. Give it a try. Also, we should all try to note our favorite game or a game we really enjoyed in the space Big Fish alots for it. Ive found lots of great games this way. Enjoy fishies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is THE Halloween Game! I really enjoyed this game, especially the surprize ending! The music was time appropriate, the scenery was gorgeous and gothic without being super saturated with the dreaded pink and purple. Some of the puzzles were very challenging, the HOGs were not annoying and I enjoyed the variations. The VO's, although not geographically correct (American) were nonetheless delivered very well and very smoothly. The VO actors did not sound like they were doing a project for Acting for Beginners 101. The actual characters themselves-excellent artwork, but the devs could have employed a bit more fluidity in the characters' movements. However, this does not take away from the game or the very engaging storyline. This is the fourth Halloween game I've played so far and it'll be my seasonal last 'till Christmas. I'm so glad I saved the best for last. Great job- loved it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A VAMPIRE GAME THAT CAN BE ENJOYED ANY TIME OF THE YEAR Dark City Budapest is an excellent game from one of my favorite developers. At least for me, this is a game that will become a Halloween favorite that I will replay each year. Although I am not a huge fan of vampire type games, I did find myself enjoying this one. Not only is the game great for the Halloween season having a detective theme makes the game one that can be played at any time of the year. The hidden object scenes are excellent and have the variety that we have come to expect. However, I happen to prefer the list find style of HOS to the other styles. What surprised me is that I enjoyed the puzzles more than the HOS. As has become the trend, there were more puzzles than hidden object scenes. If you purchase the CE version of the game, then you can replay most of the puzzles. Overall, I enjoyed the storyline that had me guessing throughout the game. The story moved along at a good pace and did keep me entertained. For me the game was a long game and it probably took me longer to complete because I spend a lot of time making sure that I find all of the collectibles. Even though this is a game purchase for me, please play the demo to see if Dark City Budapest is a game you will enjoy. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Are Vampires Getting A Bad Rap in this great new Dark City adventure? I'm eager to find out what's going on and my curiosity is growing while Agatha is busy trying to solve the mystery killings. I love the Dark City Series and this new installment is a good one, IMO. Something is amiss as Agatha's investigation uncovers evidence of foul play that goes deeper than anyone imagined. Budapest is a perfect location for this kind of story with its drab looking landscape, and the atmosphere is dark and brooding which adds an extra touch of menace to the surroundings. I love the appearance of the characters and the voice-overs sound pretty good. The scenes are full of things to keep my interest from going downhill. To my eye, the graphics are excellent and color-appropriate. There are a couple of collectibles to watch for, one of each per scene. Although they are easy to spot in most scenes, it is still fun as an extra challenge. I am, as always, thankful for the indicator bar to keep tabs on the collectibles for me. It's a great feature, sorely missed when not available. I very much like all the HOPs and most of the mini-games. There is a good variety of each, but I did skip a few puzzles because they were more tedious than fun. The game is nicely paced, not too task-heavy and everything is located without much time involved. But I do wish developers could come up with some new tasks, especially ones that make more sense. I don't have a clear picture of what it's all leading to as we look for the baddies in this vampiric tale, but it is very entertaining for me, so far. I am 3 chapters into the game and, as always, I am hoping for a surprise twist to the story and a suitable ending. If there are any loose ends left at the finish, I hope the Bonus Chapter continues the story and gives us a satisfactory end to Dark City: Budapest. The usual choices of game modes make this game fun for all skill levels. I feel it is a worthy addition to my Halloween collection and the demo helped in my decision to buy right away. Sometimes I sit on the fence a long time because a demo didn't offer enough to keep me interested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in show so far this season. Loved this game. Knew two minutes into the demo that I would buy it. Decent storyline and although I'm not a puzzle lover found many of them to be task oriented puzzles (I mean the type where you do something to get to the next part) rather than mind bending puzzles that detract from the story. Anyway, I really enjoyed playing. The only problem I had was sometimes it took a few clicks to get or place an item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Series! I really enjoyed this game. As is typical of the games in this series, you get a lot of information as you move along, and I read every bit of it, as it adds dimension. This is a complete, well developed story. I love the music and the cat. I also enjoy playing detective and assembling the clues. The voices of the characters were normal, not irritating in any way. There were times when I just stopped what I was doing to admire the scenes. And I didn't have to worry about whether I had collected the morphs and collectibles, because it tells you whether you have collected them all or not, which I appreciate. Bravo Friendly Fox on another great game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A BLOODY GOOD GAME YOU CAN SINK YOUR FANGS INTO REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME 4 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 42 pages (My Time: 6 Hours) STORY: Detective! Is prophecy being fulfilled? Is a lunar eclipse portending the resurrection of Dracula? Vampire bats have invaded Bucharest creating chaos throughout the city. Vampire hysteria is rampant! The victims are young men in their twenties, found dead with red eyes, seemingly the cause of a vampire bite. After her brother is a victim, a budding detective, Agatha, has asked your help in sleuthing this case. Has Dracula returned or is there an elaborate hoax being perpetrated by an unlikely suspect? OPINION: This is a “fang-tastic” vampire themed game. It is a nice addition to this week's Halloween games. I enjoyed this detective game with a story which turned out to be nothing what I expected it to be. I found the story behind the game well-written and loved the surprise ending. It is a fast-paced game with beautiful graphics portraying Bucharest of the late 1800’s. I love the layout of this game. There is a sidebar at the left side of the screen which indicates if there is a collectible within the scene and if it has been located. I wish more developers would provide this feature. There are two collectibles within the game, morphing objects and playing cards. There is one of each in every scene. I found most easy to locate; however, I did find a few well-hidden. At the end of the game, you will use the playing cards to play an additional card game. As you play the game you will make deductions in two formats. In one, the player analyzes a murder scene searching for a list of clues within the scene. In the other, the player is presented with six suspects or items from the game and places them into the blanks of a narrative summarizing the events just witnessed. MECHANICS: • Four (4) levels of play including a customized version. • 24 achievements – some with 3 parts. • Collect 28 cards to play a card game at the end of the game. • Collect 28 morphing objects, mostly bats. • 9 wallpapers and 8 screensavers along with concept art, music, and video sequences • Replay 18 HOP scenes and 13 mini-games BONUS CHAPTER: It is a sequel. Play Agatha, a character from the main game, who has earned her detective stripes. The chauvinistic policeman, Laszlo, now realizes her talent for detective work and has asked her to help him with a case. Monsters have invaded Bucharest and are tearing up the town. These creatures have superhuman strength. Where did these creatures come from and what Frankesteinian nightmare has been unleashed on the city? I liked the story behind the game. There are five (5) mini-games and seven (7) HOP scenes. The scenes are reused as well as some of the HOP scenes in this chapter. One of the mini-games was a repeat of one in the main game. It is a decent; nevertheless, I liked the main game better. HOP SCENES: There are eighteen (21) scenes in the game. All can be replayed at the end of the game. Most are lists of items, silhouette, or matching pairs. There is also scene in which items are identified by their pattern or based on a small segment of the item. My favorite is one which involved taking papers with punched out constellations and overlaying them over those on a star globe to remove them from the globe. MINI-GAMES: This game is a puzzle-lovers dream! There are twenty-nine (29) mini-games, thirteen (13) of which can be played at the end of the game. I found them creatively designed. There is one which can be played in either a “hard” mode or “casual” mode. I wished the developer had provided a few more puzzles with that option. There is a wide variety of different styles of puzzles as well. SPOILERS: LISTED BELOW ARE SOME OF THE MINI-GAMES AFTER THE DEMO: A. Connection puzzle. Rotate 5 cylinders with path segments on them to create a continuous path for each of 3 tokens to reach the other side B. (Hard/Casual) Maze puzzle. Move through a maze collecting parts to build a ladder. In the hard version the maze is dark, only displaying a small lighted area as you move through the maze. In the easy version the scene is lit up. C. Matching puzzle. Match up like bats D. Switch puzzle. Switch masks and clothing on 3 mannequins so each has the appropriate mask and clothing BONUS CHAPTER: E. Jigsaw puzzle. Rotate and connect pieces together to form a picture of a vampire F. Rotating tiles puzzle. Rotate 3 dials so that the correct number appears through a hole on each of the three dials G. Math problem. Move a dial on a pressure gauge to a green zone using two valves to move the dial either 3 spaces to the right or 5 spaces to the left.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Liked it! Didn't Love it! I purchased it after the trial thinking that I would love it. It was a decent game. I probably would have loved it, if I had not recently finished playing Maze 360 which set a new standard or Grim Tales Heritage which I also enjoyed.
