Customer Reviews
Grim Facade: Cost of Jealousy Collector's Edition is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from FOR THE GUYS: BEAUTIFUL WOMAN & MALE ASSISTANT The guys will be happy to know what your assistant in this investigation is a man (Aidan). You will be able to interact with some creatures/objects in the scenes which have nothing to do with your investigation (ex: cursor on the cat and watch him hiss). Your hints are limited, but you can get additional hints by finding fans in the locations, including the HOS (which may easily have 2 and which are not on the object list). You will also be amused by the antics of your fennec fox which you imported from South Africa. He, for example likes to run around in huge masks, causing him to trip. LENGTH: A little over 3 ½ hours playing very casually. STORY: Hugo Sanchez has been stabbed in his office and you have been called in to investigate. Your able assistant will compile a file of suspects and clues, as well as voice his admiration for your skills. He will also give you his insights. Hugo’s wife, Gabriela, is almost immediately considered a suspect (no surprise to crime show/books enthusiasts). Had a rather abrupt ending and it was not what you expected when you first were called in to investigate. GAMEPLAY PROGRESSION: Game is mostly adventure. Your first HOS is about 30 minutes into the game and is list-based. They appear periodically, but not too frequently. The color palette is muted, with variations of one or two basic colors with complementary colors thrown in. Nicely done – not too drab to be uninteresting, not too vibrant to be distracting. After about 1 hour, you encounter an interactive silhouette HOS. They are done as nicely as the list-based HOS. Thereafter, you can get either type. [NOTE: a lady bird is a lady bug.] There are also the Find X number of an object. Puzzles are rather easy and widely varied. You usually don’t need to go too far to get the missing pieces. Mini-games are also widely varied and differ in complexity. I did not find them too difficult, except for a couple with inadequate instructions. OTHER STUFF: Voice overs sound really good – not amateurish. And the sound effects are terrific. No map, but none needed. Automatic widescreen. Beautiful graphics – though it Ismeralda either wears the same dress all the time or has several duplicates. Other than poor instructions on a couple minigames, length was its only downfall - I play rather slowly, especially with a lot of lovely scenery to look at, so I think it should have been another hour of play. CE has the usual - up to you if it's worth the additional cost, though I usually like achievements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in the series! Grim Facade is my second favorite in all ERS series, after Edgar Allen Poes. It has many good quality story and this one is really superb, excels among all other games in the series. Although ERS again delivers with the usual graphic style, the background music is always different with every game in GF series. Also every game ends the story, not dragging them unnecessarily like PuppetShow series does. The extras in this game is also very nice, in my opinion. I really love the cute fox (hope we can keep him as our game helper!) and the game trivia is very neat. There is no map in this game but there're few backtracking so it is not needed. The game is quite easy so I even didn't use any hint button until chapter 5 or so! The bonus game, however is a bit confusing on what I should do and I have to consult the SG a few times. One downside is that our apprentice, Aldian, seems like boss instead of us being his boss. I feel like we exchange roles with Edgar Allen Poe series where we are the apprentice and Dupin is our leader. The ending of the bonus game is very good and explains what the main game doesn't. This is one of those games that have good bonus chapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Predictable, but the best in this Grim Facade series. The team that developed this has grown. Is it twisted with different motives, but it comes full circle at the end. Even with all this, members say ERS have become predictable, it's not like the first Haunted Legends. Still, for fans of this series, the best is yet to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Whodunnit Game Grim Façade: The Cost of Jealousy is the third game in the Grim Façade franchise. The story is as old as time – love, betrayal, jealousy, murder and revenge – quite a nice package. As always is the case with this developer, we are presented with a very visually appealing game. Of course, it goes without saying that the artwork is beautiful. ERS has given us those cute furry animals that they do exceptionally well, and I always have my ahhhh moment when I meet their animals in a game. The artistry of the facial expressions in their characters is so amazingly realistic as well. There is one scene in the beginning of the game when the facial expression of our victim is so revealing and goes through a range of emotions during a confrontation that a live actor could not have done it better. IMHO, this type of artistry is one of the great strengths of this development team. The music follows the developer’s branding and is pretty much the same as it is in all their games. Sometimes I long for quiet without the constant background music. The voices are done very well, and I am happy to say that ERS has ditched the game title announcement at the beginning of a game as it was just a bit of annoying, unnecessary fluff. As long as I am mentioning something annoying, I have yet to determine why Aidan keeps popping up so often. He is an addition to the game, that at this point, I find a bit intrusive. As with the other Grim Façade games, The Cost of Jealousy has the inclusion of fan and gold coins to use as we did in the first two games. We encounter IHOS and puzzles during our crime-solving journey but they don’t seem as abundant as in some other games, which I like. However, that being said, I can never have too many puzzles in a game. Needless to say, I own every CE game from ERS and love them all. I am looking forward to finding out who killed Hugo, and I suspect there is more to the story than is at first obvious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Splendid game and great bonus game! Like the previous games in the series you're playing as the detective. Great graphics and voice overs. The HOS aren't too many and they're very varied in lots of ways, so I really never felt fed up with HOS in this game. Minipuzzles are perhaps a bit too easy but they also come with lots of variation. Only complaint is that it's a bit short (3h on casual mode). On the other hand the bonus game is great and continous the story so you get kind of a different ending;) I loved the first game in the series about Venice and was actually a bit disappointed by the 2nd. In this the 3rd one I have no such complaint since this is really as good as numer one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it!! I got hooked on the Grim Facade games when the first one came out - Mystery of Venice and then Sinister Obsession. I look forward to next one. What I like about them is when an area is completely done you will know it as your cursor will not hit on anything and you won't keep going back to that area. The hint button is a good helper if needed and you can skip the games if you choose to and there are some new and interesting games in this one. The game is very well drawn and holds your interest and will not bore you with repetition. It goes smoothly from one scene to the next. There are helpers in this game but you are the lead detective as always. I really enjoyed it and hope you will too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, high fun factor... Based on completed game: An entertaining & colourful CE. Fast-paced gameplay. Enjoyable yet predictable detective plot. Lots of fun adventure tasking. Aiden assistant is annoying, but the fox is a sweet pet, well animated/drawn too. Lovely music, cutscenes & some clever hos along with standard hos. Not too many hos, either! Nice challenge level on hardest & not boring. Puzzles a bit easy, except for one toughie, yay, in bonus part. BONUS gives a nice plot twist <SE ending will still be 100% okay>, good action, all-new settings, fun to play. To me, though, bonus has too many boring standard hos just for filler/padding; BUT other bonus extras are very good: replayable mini-games, hos & movies (which I love); a short, fun trivia game with clever non-usable rewards; & I'm one who adores the concept art & world of colours! On hardest, game took +4.25 & bonus another 1.25 hours. Good value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! excellent and intriguing storyline,with a really charming spanish setting! Very nice graphics, good soundtrack, many different beautiful locations to explore, great HOS and funny minigames, even if on the easy side..You also have the help of the sweet little fox... The main game took more then 4 hours to complete in expert mode (hint and skip button available, you can change it while playing) and ends conclusively but the bonus chapter, more or less 1 hour of gameplay, is also interesting, almost totally in new areas and with a different surprising conclusion...You have a diary but not a map, there are no collectibles and trophies can be earned only playing the Trivia (not during the adventure) but is anyway a great CE I recommend..if you want something different this is the perfect game to buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I truly enjoyed this! Perhaps this game was too tame for some of the other reviewers, but i truly enjoyed it. Low pressure, low frustration, not a lot of running back and forth with one object to get to the next....the graphics were beautiful...only one mini game was confusing so the skip button came in handy. Game has a nice progression to it, so you can play a bit, walk away, and come back knowing exactly where you left off. Just the right amount of a challenge for an easy play day. Bravo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Triangle - Or Square??? ERS have brought out another beauty!! Didn't think they could do better than 'Sinister Obsession' but they have!! Played on casual. You have to collect fans to boost your hint button which can also be found in the HOS's which are interactive and quite clear to see, mini-games up to now are easy. You are a phsychic detective and can collect coins to buy items you need in the shop. Like the way the devs put interactive animals in the game #cute#!! Nice bright colours and very clear graphics and also change the play mode during the game. Love the story and definately a buy for me.
