Customer Reviews
Dark Romance: The Ethereal Gardens is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A DUTIFUL SON OBEYS HIS MOTHER – BUT SHOULD HE? Dark Romance the Ethereal Gardens is the 11th game in the series, evidence of BFG’s ongoing love affair with never-ending serial, cookie-cutter games. I guess if something worked once you simply kept on doing it again and again and again. The thing with series is that the individual games within said series all have the same premise and basic storyline. In the Dark Romance series, the theme is boy meets girl, falls in love, but either their families or an evil entity strives to keep them apart, but love eventually conquers all. That being said The Ethereal Gardens is a game that I very much enjoyed and think is the best of the last several games in the series. This developer, who I think creates some of the longest and best CE games, is one who listens to the gamers and what we want. They have a Custom setting that allows the gamer to set their favorite way to play a game, plus they allow us to select our preferred range for hint and skip times beginning at “ZERO” seconds. The HOPS are excellent and I enjoyed all of them but my favorites include the traditional list finds and the ones where we must find a specific pattern that will be found somewhere in one of the paintings on the wall. Most of the scenes were very creative beginning with the first HOP in the game. Surprisingly, I even enjoyed the storybook scenes in this game even though they are usually my least favorite. The PUZZLES are good but some were very difficult for me since the directions were not much help. I had to skip one early in the game, but fortunately that puzzle is included in the Extras section and I will be able to spend time figuring it out later. For me the game is a long one and I have not yet played the Bonus Game. For the most part, I have found the game enjoyable but it did seem to lag in some parts. Overall, the game is excellent and one that I think other gamers will find entertaining. I happen to enjoy most games from this development team that gives us a lot for the money. Each game is packed full of extras, which is something we no longer find with most CEs from other developers. Even though I think this is an excellent game, please try the demo to see if The Ethereal Gardens is a game that you will enjoy. Happy gaming!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SIX LONG CHAPTERS THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN WRAPPED UP IN FOUR Completed Game approximately 6 hours (including completion of all mini-games & CE Bonus Chapter) Once again we have a story about a poisoned King and a Queen who pleads with her son to take on an entire rival by himself, to save the day and resurrect dear ole dad from the dead. I know how this dev likes their King & Queen run Kingdoms but the plot is slooow and boooring. There are 12 Hidden Object Scenes +5 in the CE Bonus Chapter. There is Interactive List Finds Keywords in Sentences Finds, Multiples of the same Object Finds, Silhouetted Shape Finds, Replace or Reverse Finds, and my favorite was finding object placements by selecting items in the scene that match swatch tokens. There are 19 Mini-Games +10 in the CE Bonus Chapter. The games can be played in an Easy Mode or Hard mode and you can choose your difficulty preferences in the custom settings, but you can change to the mode you want individually before starting the game. I thought the games were decent but very easily solved even in the Hard mode. The Collector's Edition Bonus Chapter fast-forwards to focus on Prince Liam's now-grown daughters and Queen Henrietta's sister and an icy battle between them. There are 5 Hidden Objects Scenes, and 10 Mini-Games and you will find the remaining 3 Morphing Celeste's Jewlrey, 3 Beastiary Pages, and 7 Amulets to finish the garden collectibles. The Collector's Edition Extra's include 10 Wallpapers, 19 Concept Art Pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, 44 Movie Videos, 17 Replayable Games, 17 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 39 Achievements, 70 Collectible Amulets to purchase 14 Garden Items, 15 Bestiary Book Pages, 15 Morphing Celeste's Jewelry, Missing Journal Pages to find, 6 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a Built-in Strategy Guide.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A standard romance This is made by Domini Games and is set in what looks like Medieval times - as are so many games about Kings, Queens and fairies. The main character is a male - a Prince of the royal line, and the plot hinges on the revenge the Prince's mother wants on Queen Celeste, the evil fairy queen. The challenges are quite the usual stuff - the most interesting thing for me was the first HOP, which had sliding vertical panels - an interesting challenge. Other than that I found the colours quite gaudy, the game play quite simple. If you like this kind of game then it's for you
