Customer Reviews
Dreadful Tales: The Fire Within is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I PREDICT THAT THIS ONE IS ANOTHER WINNER When the first Dreadful Tales game came out earlier this year, I really didn’t care for it and had no desire to play the second game. However, as the earlier game had almost a 5-star rating I decided to try this new one – The Fire Within and found that for me it was a much better game. For one thing the scenery in the game was not nearly as dark. Before long I found myself totally involved in the action and I was hooked. Everything about The Fire Within is a vast improvement beginning with the lighter graphics. Although some of the HOS are dingy, I could at least find the items I was looking for. The HOS are very creative and even with some of the items being small, I still could find them. I think I only used the hint button once which shows an improvement over many of the past HOS from this developer. For someone who doesn’t care for a lot of puzzles, I found those in The Fire Within to be excellent. They were not over-the-top difficult and with a little patience I was able to solve them. There were some of my favorite puzzles included in the mix and some that were very well-designed. Overall, I found myself enjoying each new puzzle as it came along. It is also a good thing that I didn’t feel like there was a new puzzle to solve every time I needed to The storyline held my interest, even though it made me cringe to see fires being intentionally set in the forest. I live in Northern California and we have huge fires here, some that only last year wiped out entire communities, so the subject matter of The Fire Within was a bit difficult for me. That being said the story is very interesting and progresses in a way that it kept me playing in spite of my misgivings. Overall, Dreadful Tales the Fire Within is an excellent game and one that I predict will have as many high ratings as the first game in the series. As always, I recommend that you try the demo to see if this is a game you will enjoy as well. Happy gaming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from COLDFELL: POPULATION 0 REVIEW FROM COMPLETED GAME AND BONUS I actually really enjoyed the game. Its fast paced, you play different characters and it has that feeling of dread of "what's going to happen next". There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Scout, Hiker, Ranger and Explorer modes; * Interactive map. The graphics are very good. Colours are well defined and items you need are clear to see. Sound is good and the music is fast and creepy. The hidden object games are mainly straightforward and silhouette. There are no morphs in the HOPs. Items are very clear to see and each one only takes a couple of minutes. I liked the variety of mini-games. Most are quite easy so you are not bogged down with lengthy and complex puzzles - especially if you are not a lover of these. Only one took me a while towards the end of the bonus game - until I got my head around it. It wasn't hard - just took a bit of time. So, do you get the CE or SE? In the CE, there are 20 Achievements, 19 replayable puzzles and 15 replayable HOPs. There are also 38 collectibles, 19 morphs and 10 magnetic tapes to find throughout the game and bonus. The morphs are not in every scene, but at the bottom of your screen on the right hand side you will see a moving spiral to show if there is a morph. It will stop and glow when you have found it. So just look at the spiral to know if there is a morph or not in that scene. The collectibles change for each character, so keep an eye out. Get them all and you get an achievement for each. However, you can look for these after the game has finished if you miss any or want to find them later. After the game has finished you can solve the clues to get into the Souvenirs Room. Go into the Collectibles box and do the puzzles to get the combinations. When you have these, then you go to 19 different locations to find items. All up the game, bonus and extras took me about 6 hours, not skipping anything. Its a thoroughly enjoyable game, so it went very fast and I was disappointed when it finished. Overall, its definitely worth checking out this game. I liked the characters, the gloomy town and all the other locations. Happy playing fishies. I recommend the CE for this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A NOT SO DREADFUL-DREADFUL TALES Completed Game approximately 5 hours (Including completion of all mini-games & CE Bonus Chapter) *38 Scene Locations* Difficulty Range: Beginner-Intermediate Bravo "Big E"! Nowadays I'm rarely impressed with HOPA games by this developer because they are so linear, so easy, so boring, so "I know where to look, when to look and why to look" kind of games with very uninteresting graphics and storylines, but I gotta tell you, lately, these guys have really stepped up their game! This time they actually set-up the plot the right way. I've said this over and over, game after game, "Never show the monster/bad guy till the time is right" but they almost always showed the cheesy monster 5-10 minutes into the game, but chapter one passed by...what just happened? Chapter two comes and goes...who was that? Chapter three...was that a...yep, that's the way a good creepy movie/game is made, ya gotta keep 'em guessing! (especially when most games have such cheesy, fake-looking, laughable sticky-mist-monsters) I wasn't bored with the tasks, I wasn't bored with the plot, in fact, I wanted to keep playing because I wanted to know the who's, what's, where's, and when's. I LOVED the graphics, I loved the CE morphs, (because again, they did it right, if a mushroom morphs into a baseball in the middle of a forest that's gonna be so easily spotted, but if it morphs into something you'd expect to see, as a branch, for example, it's harder to spot!) I kinda even dug picking up the CE collectible trash lol. I've always loved the creepy abandoned, everything got left behind n a rush, I'm the only one here scenario and they really did pay attention to the detail to make it seem realistic, to make the player feel like they are playing as a character within the game, not just pushing an avatar around in a game, does that make sense? (just a thought to share if I may) I read a review once where someone stated a game shouldn't receive a 5-star rating unless it's a perfect game. I disagree, the rating is a personal preference which is why it says "I loved it, I liked it, it was okay, I disliked it, I hated it. I include the in's and out's of the game so that other gamers can decide if it has the features they are looking for in a game, but the star-rating is how I personally felt about the game. Just because I give a game a 2-star rating or a 5-star rating, it doesn't mean that the game is a really bad or a really good game, it doesn't mean the developer is a bad developer if I disliked the game either, it's just my opinion as to how much I enjoyed or didn't enjoy playing that game. This isn't a perfect game and it's not a "brain-burner" hard to figure out what to do next kind of game (which I actually prefer) but I really enjoyed playing the game, it just worked for me. I know I speak for many of my fellow reviewers when I say, we love playing games and we love writing, but most of all, we love being able to help other gamers by sharing our thoughts and opinions, We all enjoy different plots, tasks, and game features, but we're also required to give a star rating in order to submit our reviews, so let's all agree to disagree once in a while, if you don't agree with someone's star rating, that's awesome! It proves we aren't all the same right? :) I just don't want reviewers to get discouraged from sharing their opinions when the reviews get voted on according to the star-rating or profile and not the content because this is now the only way we have of telling the developers what works and doesn't work :) :) :) Hidden Object Scenes: There are 14 HOP's +3 in the CE Bonus Chapter. I loved that most of the HOP's required you to enter a code you discovered, or solve a puzzle first, it was kind of like unlocking a treasure chest! Most of the scenes were Interactive List Finds or Silhouetted Shape Finds. Although there wasn't a whole lot of variety, the scenes were decent and the scenes were located in somewhat interesting locations. Mini-Games: There are 32 Mini-Games +3 in the CE Bonus Chapter. Most of the puzzles are easy to solve but for the most part, enjoyable. Below are brief descriptions of some of my personal favorites: ?~Gather all the leaves in a single pile by clicking on highlighted spots to combine smaller piles into larger piles until only one remains x3. ?~Use directional arrows to roll a barrel sideways or top to bottom to reach the X. ?~Place cash register buttons so that each column and row equals the sum of 15. Bonus Chapter: (Collector's Edition version) This is a somewhat short chapter that takes place over 7 Scene locations, most of which are scenes you visited in the main game. There are only 3 Mini-Games and 3 Hidden Object Scenes but the collections continue with the remaining 7 Collectibles, 4 Morphing Objects, and 2 Magnetic Cassettes Tapes. Once the Bonus Chapter is completed, the Souvenir Room becomes available to search for 19 hidden objects after completing 5 puzzles. Collector's Edition Extra's: 4 Wallpapers, 4 Concept Art Pictures, 8 Movie Videos, 7 Music Soundtracks, 20 Achievements, 19 Replayable Puzzles, 15 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, Secret Room with 19 Souvenir Room Hidden Objects (Souvenir Room requires 5 Codes & 5 Puzzles) 38 Collectible Acorns/Cups, 19 Morphing Objects, 10 Magnetic Tapes, 4 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a Built-In Strategy Guide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TERIFYING WOODS Others have described in detail, so I will just say that I thought the game was good. You play different characters and try to discover who is the "burning" person.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slow story, same old gameplay. OVERVIEW Cookie cutter storyline and gameplay. Nothing new. Nothing interesting. Nothing challenging. STORYLINE Missing relative...again. Eldritch hooded villain...again. It would be nice to see an original, creative storyline again, but I'm not getting my hopes up. GAMEPLAY Childish and repetitive. There are about three times as many mini-games as HO scenes, and the HO scenes were too easy. The mini-games: • Copy the clue to enter the code into the fire warning sign. • Copy the clue to create the map. • Match the rocks to their outlines. • Swap pieces to restore the image. • Combine piles of leaves into one, then click on footprints (three levels). This is elementary school level gameplay and a waste of time. PRODUCTION Mixed. Cutscenes were pixellated and blurry, but objects were fairly well-rendered. The palette, thankfully, lacked those eye-searing neon colors that prevent immersion. However, the voice acting was stilted. CONCLUSION I recently replayed MCF: The 13th Skull. Compared to the immersion and enjoyment of that game, this one was torturous and could cure insomnia. I miss the days when devs offered immersive storylines and innovative gameplay instead of copying one another's substandard cookie cutters. I have nine game credits and can't find a single game to spend them on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Borrriinnggg I tried to get through this game but I couldn't stand it. It's about a family going camping and fire and the teen vanishes. That's as far as I got. It took a long time to get there. I had to stop at that point. It was too much of nothing.
