Mystery Tales: Dealer's Choices Collector's Edition is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This Joker isn't funny... Hello friends! Unless my count is off, this is #10 in this series. As usual, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story to those who do a much better job than I. The graphics in this game are fairly nice, except for the usual blur you have when going in and out of a close up scene. Colors were really sharp and clear, but not over powering at all. Didn't see the usual purples in this addition. The voices were very well done, with some emotion, but our Joker needed a little more sinister added to his voice. You can click through the dialog if you read faster than they speak, without missing any hidden clues. Game play was excellent, with no problems during the demo. Sound FX are very good when we had them, but they seemed few and far between. Animation was fairly nice and most movements were smooth. I didn't really hear that much music, but what we had moved with whatever was happening at the time. This one just seemed to be a little quieter than others in this series. We don't have a helper, but we do have a smartphone that allows us to speak to ghosts for help throughout the game. HOPs are not bad. You have a combination of silhouettes, line up the pictures and highlighted words. The scenes are fairly clear and items are not difficult to find. There is a match 3 game, if you get bored with the HOPs. Puzzles are not difficult, and nothing new. The map is the usual with this developer, which I like. Areas are clearly identified and it is easy to follow. It also shows you where you have missed a collectible. The hint system is very helpful and opens the map to show you where you need to go next. There is a lot of back tracking in this game, to pick up or use one item. Collectibles aren't bad. We need to find 60 poker chips, which can be hidden anywhere, but are not difficult to find. We also have 14 morphing cards, which are very small, morph quickly and not as easy to spot as you think. Then we get to find 15 cocktails. These aren't difficult to find, you just have to remember to look for them. The story wasn't anything really new, a little different, but predictable. Unfortunately, it moved rather slowly. This addition needed more character interaction to keep you interested, even with a slow story line. There really wasn't any challenge to the game either. As much as I like this series, this one was lacking fun and excitement. I'm sure there will be those who find this one challenging. This would be a nice lazy day, nothing better to do game, so I would probably get it with a really good sale. For now, I'll just recommend it for beginners and put it in my puddle for maybe later. I gave this one a 3.5. As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find this one to be exactly what you are looking for. Thanks for the reviews. Play on!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Miss This Time I'm sorry to have to say this, because I like the Dev and the game was great to a point, but it simply fell apart about halfway through. Meandering, cliched plot, colorful scenery, colorless characters. Pros: sharp, colorful graphics, plenty of game play for the buck. Some interesting puzzles and some that needed clearer instructions to be interesting, with selectable difficulties (I love that) that usually were best set to Hard. HOs were varied and some of them quite good. Voice acting was as good as the lines allowed. Cons: the writing, bad enough for a separate mention below. A couple of spots toward the end showed slip-ups in QA (clicking on a hot zone revealed a debug message for one, a game whose correct answer didn't work but the incorrect one did for another, and a third when we revisited a scene to find the lock we'd just opened was re-locked as if we'd never been there, only this time we no longer had the key. Fortunately the last one wasn't critical to the game). Production values alone cost them a star. Writing: the plot was simply awful, veering between the overused and the outlandish. Ridiculous villain(s) whose aim was to conquer the world with...no, I can't say it. For one, it's a spoiler, for another, it's too silly. One classic scene where the villain calmly explains all his plans to the detective and then scoots, probably out of embarrassment. (Actually two such scenes including the Bonus Game). A cruise ship deliberately run aground with the passengers in lifeboats and nobody cares? William Gladstone? British players are probably rolling their eyes. There may have been a great game there waiting to get out but the writers wouldn't let it. I was fortunate to be able to beta test this one and it looked terrific as far as it went, and from there a real disappointment. This one felt like a shiny new car with no engine, with good game mechanics and very good static art, but no horsepower at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ANOTHER COOKIE-CUTTER GAME WITH A REHASHED THEME Mystery Tales Dealer’s Choice is the latest in the popular Mystery Tales series but unfortunately it has cookie-cutter written all over it. It took only about five minutes to know the gist of the story – someone stealing souls in order to bring a beloved back to life after a tragic accident. The game begins with your friend Virginia receiving an invitation from William Gladstone the billionaire owner of a gambling cruise ship. What could be better than a relaxing vacation with your best friend as you play the onboard games of chance? This developer always provides us with long games that are filled with extras and for the most part excellent gameplay. My issue with Dealer’s Choice is that I dislike a game where the premise is to steal the gamer’s soul. I find this theme in games much more difficult to accept than a good old cloak and dagger mystery theme. I wonder when developers will use their amazing creativity to come up with something other than soul thieves and demonic entities. This gamer is rather burned out by the same old rehashed storylines. Not only is the storyline a rehash but Dealer’s Choice is simply puzzles, puzzles, and then more puzzles. Yes, the puzzles are fun and some are challenging even when the “easy” mode is selected. The puzzles were enjoyable but there were simply far too many of them with twice as many puzzles than HOPS in the game. Even though a few squeaky wheels seem to demand more puzzles in HOPA games, there are still many of us who play hidden object games because we love HOS. The HOS are very good and they are well-crafted, some are even very creative. I found them very enjoyable but wish there had been more rather than finding a puzzle at almost every step in the game. As mentioned earlier the puzzles are very good with some of my favorites included in the mix. The overall gameplay was excellent and there were a lot of activities to keep me busy. Even though some items were used almost immediately after they were found. Several lived in my inventory to be used later in the game and I had to remember exactly where I had seen the locations where they should be used. Mystery Tales Dealer’s Choice is an excellent game that many of you will love but for me it was simply another cookie-cutter game with a theme that I didn’t like. Please try the demo to see if this game is for you. Happy gaming!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from same old game This game is typical HOG. Man loses wife. Sells soul to devil in exchange for wife. Do a bunch of hidden object stuff and killing people, until detective defeats devil and man recants. Boring and long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seems to be marketed to pre-teen girls, not adults. STORYLINE Narcissistic actress with the obligatory tiny dog invites you to a casino cruise ship, the owner of which is a soul-stealing entity. Amazing how many of those darned things there are in HOPA world. GAMEPLAY Bribe animals. Fix broken stuff. Have you hand held firmly and your actions steered every step of the way. PRODUCTION Well-rendered graphics, but the palette was, apparently, subcontracted out to Lisa Frank. The characters' facial movements hit the uncanny valley. Voiceovers are pretty bad. RECOMMENDATION I don't have one. This dev's games are clones of one another. I bought one, once, and regretted it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's a mystery to me why anyone would buy this!! Wow, this game is full of surprises! I was surprised to find yet another soul-stealing evil entity! And I was surprised that I had to find a pin to open an item that I owned! And I was also surprised that I had to find two pieces of a broken stick, put them together using tape that I also had to find, and then use it to get a key that was just out of reach! Okay, so I really wasn’t surprised. This re-hashing of old plots, use of old ploys, are what far too many game developers keep doing in their belief that we are stupid enough to spend our money over and over again for the same stale games. Of course, there is at least one reviewer who gave this trash a five-star rating. Really? This is the same reviewer who frequently mentions having played a game in beta —in spite of a Big Fish customer service agent assuring me that beta games were assigned on a random basis. Right, I certainly believe that! Come on, I'm sure Big Fish will continue feeding you beta games even if you post an honest review now and then. Don’t waste your time or your money on this piece of rubbish!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just Awful. Seriously......The Worst I'm sure my review will be posted a month from now, but I can't just delete this one and move on without saying something. This game has reached a level of stupid that I honestly thought we'd never see again. As someone who's been here since "Mirror Magic Deluxe" was new, I've seen some real stinkers and this one is among the top 10 of those. The story line was boring (like, REALLY boring) and the characters were so stale and dull that by the end of the demo I couldn't have cared less about what happens to them next. As for the mini-games and HOP's, stupid. Just stupid, tedious and forgettable. There was no fun to be had in any of them. I swear I don't mind games that might have stuff we've seen before (I mean really, how many variations could there possibly be in HOP games?) as long as the story line and characters are intriguing, creative and the games are fun I'll happily shell out the money, but this one hits none of those things. I'm really hoping we haven't reached the end of creativity in the HOP genre......I really do love them.
