Customer Reviews
Dark Parables: Curse of the Briar Rose is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful series Wonderful graphics, well done FROGS, original puzzles, good length, morphing objects and a good amount of backtracking. The only complaint is that there's just one game mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game! This is a great hidden object game, where the hidden object scenes involve finding all the pieces of one needed item. I love the graphics on this one, as the scenes are beautifully detailed. The story is good, but for me the fun was wending my way through the castle and grounds. Nice take on Sleeping Beauty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely GORGEOUS but... I LOVED this game!!! I've never been a big fan of FROGs but this completely changed my mind. There were certainly a lot of them but unlike HOGs you could whip right through them and when I came upon "one more", my stomach didn't sink with "not ANOTHER one!!!" Lots of mini games and puzzles and almost all of them had more than one step which was so cool and quite a surprise. Just as I'm thinking, "Dang this is so easy" there'd be a 2nd and sometimes 3rd step. Wow!!! And they were all certainly do-able but definitely required a, "Hmmm, let's see." Absolutely loved that it made me think! Gorgeous, gorgeous graphics and lovely voice over..of course it's supposed to be taking place in Scotland and Briar Rose has a definite American accent but hey...my one and only complaint, and it's a big one, is that I finished in about 2.5 hours!!! And I am not a fast player! The story definitely could have been fleshed out more. It's gorgeous, it's fun, it sucks you right in, but it's ridiculously short. So I DEFINITELY recommend it, but don't pay full price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Curse of the Briar Rose This game was amazing. I enjoyed the story line and can't wait to play the Frog Prince. The HOG were not as hard as I would have liked, but the other puzzles gave a variety of levels to keep it interesting. The graphics were great and very gripping. Overall I would suggest this game to anyone who loves adventure games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool beginning I really love this game but why not in Collector's Edition for MAC? Oh well. Gives it a good started to the Exile Prince anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 stars I really enjoyed this game. The graphics and storyline were both good and the puzzles were just right in difficulty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful sleeper hit This game was very enjoyable to me. I like the fabricated object searches rather than looking for random items in piles of junk. It doesn't force you to go a certain direction as my order of doing things wasn't always theirs. As long as you finish the objectives they give you, you'll move on to the next chapter. The puzzles were minimally challenging, but not so simple that it didn't take some thought. The hidden object scenes were relatively easy. Usually, I would have found most of the fragments of the item before I would need to look down and see what I was looking for. Play the scenes enough, and you can begin to tell what was out of place. Other than that, an enjoyable way to spend several hours. After I played the trial on this, I bought it right away and wish I had bought the CE instead of just the SE. Maybe one day I'll splurge and buy the CE of this one and the 2nd one in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue Tea games does it again Blue Tea Games makes undoubtedly the best games on Big Fish. The Dark Parables series are all wonderful. This one is the first and is a little less complex than the later two. More puzzle than HO. Perfect graphics and sound. Lots of back and forth between scenes. I didn't want this to be over when it was done. This is a game for casual game connoisseurs. If you like some easy fast fun this isn't for you. If you buy this game (and you should) GET THE COLLECTOR'S EDITION! It is worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best hidden object games out there! I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game from beginning to end. Instead of blitzing through it in one sitting like I do many other HO games, this one challenged me to where I had to complete it over several days. (However, even though it took me longer, I still feel it was juuust a teeny bit short.) I had been looking for more challenging and engaging games, and this one is one of them! Beautiful art. Music that isn't annoying and flows nicely. Interesting and engaging story-line. I just wish I could get the Collector's Edition for the Mac!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting and fun The storyline and mini-twists were great and it was a lot of fun to get into the story and not just be consumed with trying to figure out what to do next. A little on the easy side - particularly because the objects are all just pieces of one object -- but nice and relaxing. Art is very well done, and the hint system is helpful but not too leading. This one made me want to try the other two in the series.
