Rated 3 out of 5 by from mediocre game this game didn't hold my attention like the others in this series. not sure why but it just didn't. it does have a custom level and a map. a good hint system. it is set up for a sequel but i hope it is better than this game.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What's not to like, I'll tell you I see Pennmom36 who is a top contributor like me gave this game a 3. I don't think thats so bad myself. A 3 is still a buyable game. That said I think my friend pennmom36 really summed up all you need to know and her review alone is all you really need. I don't agree with those who straight up bashed the game. Look the graphics are not very good but that doesn't take away from the game play for me, I enjoyed the game. So I'll keep this short, try the demo and be open minded. I have played the other games in the series and this was my favorite of them all. I thought the HOP's were on par with most games out there and the game play was pretty smooth. I was actually surprised I liked this game I def tried the demo first because I haven't liked any of the other games in this series at all. I recommend this game.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the others I enjoy the Dark Tales series and have them all, but although I enjoyed this game for the most part, I can't say it was a very smooth flowing game and they have changed Dupin and not for the better. Could be a bit confusing and not a great storyline. The ending was probably one of the worse I've seen in years. I was a bit disappointed in this one and probably won't play it again. Should have waited and bought in on a BOGO or with a credit...not a good full price one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so much I really thought I'd like this game but a few things kept me from buying it. Dupin looks wretched Travel cut scenes time consuming and unnecessary Puzzles relied too much on quick arcade skills and not actual thinking HOPs not that interesting This game may appeal to some but not me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blast from the past As soon as I started playing this game I got reminded of an old game; it was : Mystery chronicles , Murder among friends, released 2008; due to colour and sound . It actually took me back to the time when I started playing Hidden Object Games . The only modern thing in this game is the white Raven. Everything else we had before and much better . It is still ok to play and you might have fun . There are some good puzzles in this game. My favourite from this series is : The Fall of the house of Usher ! I recommend try before you buy !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This raven is almost a turkey! Although I own some of the earlier Edgar Allan Poe series games, I did not buy this one. The graphics and music certainly create the Victorian Era ambiance. I was not impressed with 'new and improved' Dupin. He looked seedy, worn, and in need of a bath and a shave. The game play is a little slow but, I guess, that's sort of in keeping with the less hectic time in which the game is set. The game has a useful interactive map, and that saves a lot of running around. The HOGs and puzzles are nothing new, nor very challenging. Most of the artifacts are congruent with the era, except for a dial phone but, okay, it's not that jarring. Although I recommend this game, it's with reservations. Play the demo and decide for yourself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Raising The Dead Allen Dillinger uncovered an ancient artifact during one of his archeological digs of a Sumerian King. It is believed that this artifact can raise the dead, if buried with the artifact. Something strange began to happen to Allen shortly afterwards, his nightmares became reality, reality became his nightmares. Insanity consumed him, and sadly he took his own life. Detective Dupin has been asked to investigate his suspicious death, the only clue lies within his suicide note, penned to his lover, Lenore. The only problem is, she doesn't exist....or does she? This is probably one of the better Dark Tales offered in a long time, and the hand drawn graphics are top notch. I'm still not blown away with this version of Edgar Allan Poe's: The Raven, because they all seem the same to me. The games always take place at night, the characters all look the same, the scenery always looks the same. There's just not much creativity, and in the Collector's Edition version, the only bling offered is "Little Devils" collectibles, and even then, there are only 12 of them, and they aren't hidden or even a morphing object which would have made the feature more appealing. One of my biggest complaints with all ERS games, is that on my large screen monitor, the game stretches too much and I don't have access to anything along the edges of the screen, so I have to play their games in a small windowed mode, or completely change my screen's resolution. The Hidden Object Scenes are sparse in the demo, although some of the vast Mini Games could qualify for an HOP. At least the scenes aren't repeated, which is usually the case from this dev. In this demo, really there are just a couple HOP's offered, an Interactive list find and a Multiple of the same objects find. The Mini Games are pretty good, and most are offered in a Casual or Hard mode of difficulty. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Ring the bells in the correct sequence as shown in the clue. 2) Get the scarab to the finish, avoiding enemies. 3) Follow the card with the green mark to defeat your enemy. 4) Arrange the weapon card halves to create the correct image matches. 5) Press buttons in the correct order. 6) Place the tokens beside the images they correspond to. 7) Decrypt and enter the safe code by figuring out the number each shape on the clue represents based on the equations. 8) Find the phone number by trial and error. 9) Use arrows to move the birds skull into the correct slot which will continue until it hits an obstacle or trap. 10) Find identical masks by selecting two cloaked figures at a time. The Collector's Edition has 23 replayable Movies, 29 replayable Mini Games, 20 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 11 Wallpapers, 11 Concept Art pictures, 6 Screensavers, 4 Music Soundtracks, 49 Achievements, 12 Collectible Devil Imps, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Adventure, enjoy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bleh. I like most of the Poe games, but this one was a big disappointment. I expect them to take me to 19th century Paris, or at least to somewhere in Europe. But The Raven seems to be set in some vague version of the American old west. What does that have to do with Dupin/Poe/gothic murder mysteries?? I couldn't suspend my disbelief at all. Plus the "Raven" character is so dumb: a supposedly sexy woman in a sci-fi bird mask -- a transparent attempt to inject some excitement into the lame world of this game. I ended up deleting it without even finishing it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What Have They Done to Dupin This is posted after playing the demo. I guess all good things must come to an end. This was a really great series. I have all of them, even some old enough they don't play on my computer anymore, but this one... it isn't going to join them. This one is for the "birds." Just lost the fun in the story and the game itself. Graphics were fine. A bit on the dark and dreary side, but that goes along with the genre. I thought the sound, especially the voice overs were very well done and was the plus in this game. I didn't think Dupin was all that bad in appearance. He does look different, but I like a little stubble on a man. The music was good and the effects went along with what was happening in the scene. I hated those mini games. I think I got though one or maybe two before I hit the skip button. Way beyond my patience and skill level. The hidden objects were fine, what there were of them. Not too many in the demo it seemed. So far as helpers, there are several modes of play, of which I chose the custom so I could set the skip and hint to the fastest setting. The interactive map was very helpful in getting around and knowing where there were things to do. Only difficulty I had was the inventory. Things were so small I had trouble seeing what was there. There are others who will go into the story for you. It has been so many years since I read The Raven, I couldn't tell you if it followed the original story or not. When the demo ended the white raven had been unmasked, I think, and I do wonder what she had to do with everything. Was she the Lenore spoken of in the story? Don't know and never will. Although this is not a buy for me, you play the demo and see it's something that tickles your fancy.
