Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's The Premature Burial is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 155.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best Games I have Played! Loved this game... The storyline was excellent...graphics were good and the puzzles were a bit challenging in some cases but otherwise fairly straightforward. The background music was just average compared to the Ancient Guardian series but all told this was an excellent game and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is after a bit of a challenge and likes the Edgar Allen Poe series of games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kept me up past bedtime I started playing this game last night intending to stop halfway and go to bed, but there was always one more task to do, one more puzzle to solve, one more HOG... and I ended up finishing the whole game. This is a testament to how well the game is structured (a trait of all ERS games); you always have something to do (use inventory item, solve a puzzle or hidden object scene) that doesn't require much backtracking and you open up locations at a good pace. The music is good, and I liked the art (although it was a little washed out), however it's very much like the music and art in previous games by ERS. I really enjoyed the puzzles. There was a good variety of them and they were more difficult than average for a HOG. I took some time to some of them, but I was never stumped or frustrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game!! I can honestly say that this was indeed like a mystery for me at first. I figured out who the ghost was waaaay before I even made it to the town. I'm not gonna spoil it but overall it was a very great game. You may get frustrated though like I did. But after I turned the game off at night and sat in my bed, I used to think about the game, kinda like you would when you take breaks from reading a novel. I used to sit and think.. "where haven't I checked yet?"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun game Such a fun game, loved it. It's definitely my favorite one out of the series with a good balance of adventure/HO/puzzles. Great story, graphics, voice overs and play. Highly recommend. Black cat and Rue morgue were bugged down with a lot more hidden object games which i didn't care for....I like balance and get burnt out on pure H.O.s

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must have game that leaves you wanting more! The end of this current trilogy was by far the best of them all! Wonderful graphics and amazing story. Best of all, this is the first one with VOs and they were very complimentary to the story. I was so into the story I would forget about the real world! It has just the right amount of HOS and the puzzles were nicely ranged from easy to med-hard. The cut scenes are something I usually don't watch, but these were definately worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely one of the better HO games! Being based on EA Poe makes for a great storyline, so this is a VERY compelling and satisfying game in that regard.. The HO scenes were pretty forthright for finding stuff, but I liked the items that required an extra step. Not quite as simple as most so, even though you might be able to pick up an item, it required a little thought as to how to use it. There wasn't a LOT of running back and forth, but I did miss a HO scene and had to use the walkthru to figure out where the wrench was that I needed right at the end. The SE was relatively short, but it was a good enough game that I was anxious to get through each step just to go on to the next. Will definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long and Thorough This series is truly ERS at the top of their game. I’ve played all of the games in the “Dark Tales: Edgar Allen Poe” series and they have been fantastic. For a Standard Edition, this game is long and thorough. Everything feels complete and thoughtful. The graphics are good and there are a lot of locations to visit. Just when I thought the game was ending it kept going. You truly get more for your money with this series. If you’ve played the others, then you don’t want to miss this one. Some people don’t like the odd animated characters, but I think it’s rather humorous along with the voice acting which is fine. The characters in their games are always entertaining. I was able to do the majority of the game without the walkthrough, but I did have to check a couple of times. I did use hints for the hidden object scenes. I’m looking forward to the next in the series. I just wish that all of the ERS games were this rigorous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Third Game in the Series This game continues with the excellent Dark Tale's both in quality and in style. Some better visuals have been added to enhance the story, which is well written and executed. I still find the second game in the series, The Black Cat, to be the best overall, but this is an excellent addition and I really recommend it to those who liked the first two. Only quips I have are: addition of anachronistic items in some of the hidden objects scenes, and we get no clue what city we're actually in. Dupin lived in Paris, but it is definitely not Paris. Getting back to gameplay, it is easy to get into, perhaps a bit easier than the Black Cat but harder than the Murders in the Rue Morgue (I have played all three games on expert mode). There is nothing really to say there. The music is good, sounds are good, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hidden Object Game Nice storyline, scenery and music. Very challenging - requires a lot of thinking. There are many areas to explore, codes to crack and lots of mini-games. It's a very long game and keeps you busy trying to solve the crimes. The HO's are mixed with one and two-step selections. This is a very nice, well thought out game. The graphics are very good. The ending is very good. Enjoyed this game a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Wonderful Story Third in a series of Dark Tales games, this is one of the best. Quite long for a standard edition, and very captivating in mood and storyline. Although this is a well known tale, as are most of Poe's stories, this one will captivate you with how it is told adding a new and refreshing angle. No longer are you a spectator, or mere reader, this time you are part of the story. Filled with intriguing puzzles, and beautiful hand-drawn scenery, this game will keep you playing!
