Customer Reviews
Dreadful Tales: The Fire Within Collector's Edition is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dreadful Tales #2 The Fire Within BASED ON COMPLETED GAME (& bonus chapter) This game should have a *Warning- disturbing content* Obviously, I don't suggest this one for kids. It took me 4hr 35 min to complete the SE portion. and 45 min. for the bonus chapter (but I skipped most the MG). Total gameplay for CE: 4hr 20min The other bonus content that unlocks took me 15 min. total There is no paranormal in this one. It's a suspense thriller/ serial killer type of game. I give 5* based on the demo which is played in beautiful autumn woodland areas. I adored the demo and would rate it higher if I could. At the start of chapter 2 you get to hike through several forest scenes during a MG and it was so fun. I didn't care for this game as much after the demo, because most of the areas of play are in dank, dirty, indoor locations which I would rate 3*. In the end I decided on a 5* rating for it's entirety because I loved the storyline bumped the rating back up for me. The best thing about this game (other than the demo) was the fact you play as 3 family members. As the story progresses, the storyline for the character you’re playing ends with a cliffhanger and starts up with another character. So you watch the game from several perspectives. In the bonus chapter you play as a 4th character. The first game in this series did this also, but only with 2 characters. Also, Eipix used these perfect sepia color tones. What a breath of fresh air! The colors are natural and I bought the CE within playing only 10 min. of the demo because of these color tones. Since you play as 3 different characters, each one has its own collectible so just be aware you are looking for different items. I think they were green cups, a rock with a red band, and lost posters. It also has a morph to look for and just a few magnetic tapes to collect which you continue collecting in the bonus chapter. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ JOURNAL: This game has an awesome journal that holds the storyline step x step. Be sure to keep looking back and reading new entries. I spent a good deal of time re-reading the journal from the start too, just so I knew exactly what was going on. The main story ends a bit too quickly and leaves you speculating what happened to a couple of the characters. That gets resolved in the CE bonus play. I wish Eipix would incorporate the cut scenes within the journal. It helps to understand the story and you don’t have to exit the game and enter “extras” whenever you want to brush up on the story. Quite often I'll wait to buy a CE on sale and play other games in between so it's great to have a journal that holds the story and even better when it holds the cut scenes AND the diary notes. Storyline is one of the most important things to me in these games. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ BONUS CHAPTER: The storyteller sets the scene again, mentioning the people from Paranormal Hour that had been visiting the area and we are now playing as Kate with Barry as a side kick from this ghost hunting crew. 7 scenes are played in this chapter. 5 are areas we played in the main game (and they aren’t even really revised), and only 2 areas are new. I counted 2 HOS and 5 MG (2 of these were easy & had no skip). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WTG: CE has a 57 page in game strategy guide. 52 pages of that are actual gameplay. Demo-Ch.1 Jill Weaver is 13pgs, Ch.2 Josh Weaver is 10pgs, Ch. 3 Jill Weaver- part 2 is 11pgs, Chapter 4 Emma Weaver is 11pgs, & bonus chapter Kate (and Barry) from Paranormal Hour is only 7 pgs So to give you an idea how long the bonus chapter is compared to the demo… The demo is 13pgs long and the bonus chapter is only 7 pages. WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE: 1. The music was perfect for this game but they played it way too much. I just prefer a lot of environmental sounds during long stretches of gameplay. 2. THE GAME EFFECT SOUNDS: They are on the same options slider as the environmental sounds in the menu and every time I’d bump the curser into the inventory bar it makes this noise. Also the “NOPE, try again” sound. I had just finished 3 other Eipix games back to back and these same noises are just so annoying to me now and you can’t shut them off without turning off the environmental sounds. 3. CLARITY OF GRAPHICS- They seem to be using some kind of camera-like filter over all the scenes to make them look painted. The problem with this is the graphics start to get fuzzy and undefined. I loved the older games that just used computer gen graphics like the console games. If you liked this game, I thought these were similar in some way: 1. Bonfire Stories #1 Faceless Gravedigger 2. Enigmatis The Mists of Ravenwood (also played in a campground-like location) 3. Shiver: Vanishing Hitchhiker (same sepia tones- it’s an old game, may need to adjust options) 4. Brink of Consciousness: Dorian Gray (psych. thriller- serial killer type game- older though- I’ll add a link). Thank you Big fish~ Another great job Eipix!! I’m such a fan. I can’t wait for the next one in this series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extras If you are anything like me and don't get all the 'hidden extras', this game is positively for you. They give you an opportunity when you finish the bonus game to guide you in the game to get all the collectables you may nave missed. I could play and play and play this game. I love a game that shows me exactly where everything is. I am one 'happy camper'. Thank you Eipix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creepy & Scary ! This is one of the best horror games i've play on BFG. The artwork is amazing with hand drawn scenes and beautiful colors. The music is perfect for this type of adventure and the characters are realistic with good voices over. The story is creepy with a monstrous killer in the town -- not for the faint of heart ! Some scenes are disturbing and more horrifying than the average games on this site. The hos are good but too numerous versus the mini-games. The collector content worth it - many collectibles to find with a short but good bonus chapter (prequel). This series is one of the best for creepy horrors stories. Waiting for the next installment ... Happy Gaming ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DARN fine coffee! I honestly just started this game a few minutes ago and I just wanted to say "Thank you" to Eipix for all the great references throughout to Twin Peaks, probably my all-time favorite tv series. The game's fun, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Good Game I don't play many Hidden Objects but when I do, I demand more from them than I do my preferred Timed Resource Management ones. This has most, if not all: atmosphere, lovely graphics, a banger of a storyline and decent HOs and minis. Indeed, the scenery is so aesthetically pleasing, I've already clipped one scene and set it as my desktop background. The story? In a nutshell: desperation in finding a suddenly missing girl in an desolate woodland, with the added frightmare of a burned maniac running around, as legend has it. There are morphing objects and collectibles to find. You have the typical four game modes. You can turn off voices and sounds--I turn off the music and voices to get a more granular feel of the artistry and the story. It's now a part of my games library. Good game, please try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Story, Spooky Music, Great Atmosphere, Fun Puzzles I'm only an hour into this game but cannot wait to review. This game has an exceptionally fun, scary, story. The music is appropriately spooky, and, although there is a lot of hidden object activity, there are also different types of puzzles. The Fire Within is just like your favorite scary movie, only YOU are in it! Have fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistically Creepy Story, Believe It or Not I really enjoyed this game, although it is darker than the usual HOPA storyline, both visually and in story arc. Not much is resolved in terms of story as we are told two myths or urban legends (the bonus chapter is another myth but related to the main game). We get to decide if we believe the story or not. This HOPA is realistically creepy. As with the first game in this series, this is a dreadful tale and again, I find the game play excellent. I can always do with fewer HO scenes but these were a challenge at times. This developer's puzzles make me think, and I enjoy that. What I think is best about this series is the way Eipix integrates the HOs and puzzles into the storyline fairly seamlessly. I liked playing as three different characters, as well. Obviously, there is no one game for everyone but for everyone there is game. Play the demo and see if this is a game for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Stars all Around .....and 5 stars deserving, why? The game had a good story. The games story had interesting characters and the introduction of this production timely for the spooky season. Can hardly wait for the next game to compliment this winning series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The creep factor is cranked to 20 on this one! I honestly don't know where all these negative reviews are coming from! DANG! I sure got my money's worth with this one! Not only is it a long game (roughly 6-7 hours), but it made me rethink whether I should even go hiking again! I would not recommend this one for kids because it's pretty intense at times. The storyline was a little thin, but overall the game play was amazing. You play as 3 different people (one per chapter), but it's not like those Romance games were you switch around within a scene. The HOPs were some of the best I've ever played. I really had to look hard for items that were staring me in the face! The morphs, collectibles and tapes were fairly difficult to find. You have to find all the collectibles to be able to access the souvenirs. Luckily, you can find the ones you missed at the end (THANK YOU DEVS!). I was impressed by the creep factor without the use of pop-up ghouls to make you jump. There were some moments where the story takes you back to another view point from another person angle, which I thought was a nice touch. To be honest, I don't remember the first game from this series (even though I did buy it). But after I recover from this one, I'll definitely be checking out the first one again! As always, please try the demo first... but don't play it alone at night unless you really into that sort of stuff (like I am!!!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from and now for some light entertainment.... not always my favourite genre, zombie stuff leaves me cold but I found this quite entertaining and maybe a little spooked at times. But it kept my attention and I didn't feel like stopping to look for a different game halfway through.HOPS fairly standard but there are only so many variations on a theme, I throw down the gauntlet game developers!
