Brought to you by Artifex Mundi, the creators of the Enigmatis and Nightmares from the Deep series.

Within the shadow of an ancient forest, on the bottom of the foggy valley, stands the lonely village of Ravenbrook. Its perimeter is protected by the villagers' charms, but beyond the legends and the magic, the gloomy forests and wailing wind, lies a chasm so deep and feared, it is known by the villagers only as The Abyss. No one knows what lies within, but when a strange visitor arrives in Ravenbrook just before a young bride is kidnapped, the villagers find justification for their superstitions…

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride Collector's Edition is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely SUPERB in every way! I can't even remember when I truly enjoyed a Hidden-Object game; and, even of those that I did enjoy, this one truly is the best! Yes, the graphics are great - but then, that's not saying much, considering almost all (possibly even all) of the Big Fish games tend to have great graphics. And, yes, the music is certainly wonderful - but then again, there are quite a few Big Fish games with really good music as well. No, what makes this particular game exceptionally great is its Storyline. Oh, it's a fairy tale, no doubt; and probably not an original one at that. But the game presents it in a uniquely interesting way, enjoyable by both kids and adults alike. And, yes, this game does have a "Bonus Adventure," as most Collector's Editions do. But in this game, the bonus game has not been just "added on," as is the case with so many HO games. On the contrary, not only is the Bonus game an intrinsic part of the story *and* a fitting conclusion, it is really the only way this conclusion could have been even presented to us. In other words, it is fitting both as a bonus game as well as a great conclusion to the story overall. So, to folks who like to buy only Standard Editions, I would urge you to make an exception in this case and buy the Collector's Edition itself. You'll be glad you did! :) Moving on now... Yes, this Collector's Edition does have Achievements. But, unlike most other games which require you to do a bunch of often quite silly stuff to get their achievements, the developers of this game have actually put a lot of thought in their Achievements, dividing them in the following four groups. TROPHIES. These are the kind of Achievements we often see in Hidden Object games. Unlike other games, however, this game has a very reasonable number of such "trophies" - only 11, to be exact. There are the familiar types, e.g., finish a HOP in less than a minute, finish half the HOP's without using a Hint, etc. But then, there are three trophies with a catch, requiring you to play Domino Games *instead of* the HOP's. Thus, you have to play both the main game and the Bonus Adventure twice, if you want to try for these trophies. I should note that one of these three trophies is extremely challenging: finishing a Domino Game in less than a minute. But then, you don't *have* to get all the Achievements, do you? And these Domino Games really can be quite fun in and of themselves. Then again, the game is interesting enough to be replayed even if you weren't interested in either those Domino Games or their related trophies. It's all up to you! STORY ACHIEVEMENTS. There are only 13 of these, and they are all pretty easy to get: just play the game and you get these achievements as you move forward! Easy, peasy! SPIRITS. There is a total of 30 of them and, as the Achievement section itself shows you, 3 of them are found in the Bonus Adventure. Again, these are pretty easy to find - in close ups. And what's most wonderful is that the close up will *not* close and deprive you of getting the Spirit (as is mournfully the case in most HO games) until you have clicked and gotten the Spirit from there! Now *that's* truly gracious of the developers. Once you get a Spirit, you can always go to the Achievements section and check out its name in the Spirit board there. A cute touch, indeed, but ... that's about all you get for this "achievement." ELUSIVE OBJECTS. These are really what are more commonly known as "morphing objects" in other games. There are 28 in all, and mind you - they are *not* always easy to find! But it's worth getting them, for the following reason. Check out the Achievements section and you will find an open book, right above the "Elusive Objects" count. Every time you find an elusive object, a paragraph in that book becomes legible. You can click on the "play" button to hear it. Thus, you actually get a synopsis of the game's storyline - told in a very much old-fashioned, fairy-tale style. The developers keep you from learning anything prematurely, of course, by controlling when and where you find the elusive objects necessary to learn the related parts of the story. So, again, it's definitely worth it to try to find these objects! Finally, I would like to note that all these Collector's-Edition achievements (or gimmicks, as I would call them) do bother and even annoy me in most games. But not in this one! On the contrary, I actually enjoyed trying to get this game's achievements, partly because the storyline was so strong that the achievements did not distract or bother me at all; and partly because the achievements themselves were so reasonable in number *and* nature, innovative, and interesting. They were also quite well-integrated in the storyline. In short, I really enjoyed this game; and I hope that you will too. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A surprising gem here! The CE is worth every bit! I was really taken in by the game. SO MANY things that completely blew me away like: -Highly polished game, almost no glitches, smooth gameplay. -Excellent and credible storyline. I wanted to finish till the end to unravel the mystery. -Astounding artwork, especially in the bonus play! -Audio on point, smooth transitions and very relatable to the game theme. -I personally enjoyed the cutscenes and the dialogues. Plus the voiceovers. -Scenes change consistently as the game/puzzle progresses which is very satisfying to find. -Practical improvisations of the uses of an object in the inventory. -A bit Harry Potterish, which I love no doubt. (E.g- Haugwitz. Chamber of Fire etc.) -Novelty of some of the puzzles a welcome fresh change. -Misclick Penalty. Yes! I think its a must on at least one difficulty level of every game. -HOPs had an option of Domino games which was fantastic. -Additional figurine+elusive objects search add to the game. -BONUS GAMEPLAY.....Loved it!! -Communicating with other characters and teaming with them for a task was really good. -I wouldn't mind replaying just to find undiscovered items. Some cons would be: -Only rare minor grammar flaws in subtitles but overall good language usage. -3D could be better but its still good work. -Some puzzles wayyyyyy too easy, didn't even feel like a challenge. Would I recommend....definitely YES! Not just for the amount of detailed work that has been done, but for the player satisfaction I felt overall. Thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ARTIFEX MUNDI MARATHON! After playing one of the best pc games ever--Enigmatis 3, I decided to go back and play or replay all of the Artifex Mundi Developers' games in my BFG Collection. How did I miss playing The Forsaken Bride is a mystery to me, however, a happy and pleasant surprise! Ever excellent, this older game was ahead of it's time in every aspect and even better than most games today. An interesting, absorbing unfolding story line is my personal top of the list in gaming excellence along with unparalleled, exquisite cut scenes that flowed ever so smoothly. My only regret is I got so caught up in the ending excitement, that I forgot to collect the last Morphing Collectible for the Achievement! Ah! Played all day with some minor breaks. Much to do in both the regular and bonus chapters. Enjoy! Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Fun! I really enjoyed this game and as a collectors edition too. I loved the challenge of finding those fairies and the elusive objects. I loved the finished products! I loved the book that told the story of the witch's life and that you had to collect a piece at a time to bring it to life. That was so great! I was over the moon about the fairy board too. Each fairy had a name and something that inspired their lives, the giggling and breathy noises they made when clicking each one was adorable. The developers put a lot into this one! This is one of the best CE's. I loved the graphics, the music, each scene was a new wonder. This is a long game too. The Bonus is short(about the same as other games) but its worth the CE for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phantasmagorical I found this game to be Incredibly good! As a pagan, I've found most adventure games to be hostile to practitioners of the occult. It's nice to find game developers who do not use witches as target practice for homicidal Christians.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game! Another game with an extremely high standard. Woman scorned inadvertently curses a family (never speak out in anger!), go forward 25 years and you're travelling home for your twin's wedding and a bear with odd eyes attacks your carriage... and then the fun starts. It begins with you rescuing a really cute kitten and never stops. The map was a god send to me because I tend to forget where I need stuff. The graphics and voices were well above par too. Quite a long and involved game, I played it in one sitting - about 3-4 hours and the bonus game is well worth playing too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wow loved it This one starts out with gorgeous locales that have tons of color that are really detailed and well drawn. Very interesting storyline told throughout the game. Loved how the achievements, collectibles and morphing objects were set up with their own location and the morphing objects completed a storybook. The game play was not overly easy and the morphing items were sometimes quite difficult to locate. good. At least for me, a too easy game will start to lull me to sleep. I did play on the expert setting as that was the only one that would earn an achievement. There was plenty of interaction with characters in the game, many cut scenes and quite good VO's. A little helper cat assisted without being overly sappy. Mini games were varied and numerous but for the most part very easy to finish. The HO scenes were interactive or you could play a game of dominos instead. But it really was the storyline in this game that kept me involved from the beginning all the way to end of the bonus chapter which seemed to fit very well and give the game closure. I didn't find all the morphing items.. missed two. (and I was really trying) nor did I get all the achievements so this one has some replay value also. Overall I really loved this one. Bright, beautiful, charming with a well done story, lots of HO scenes, many puzzles, morphing objects, collectibles and achievements. What else is there? enjoy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This developer is consistent I was beginning to think that I had grown out of adventure games. I found myself getting bored halfway through them or not finding the demos engaging enough to inspire purchase in the first place. Then I played this game. I love adventures! I just haven't encountered a good one in a long time. With this game, I experienced that I-MUST-STAY-UP-UNTIL-3AM-TO-FINISH feeling of excitement that I have been missing of late. The STORY is phenomenally engaging. Something I found interesting was that even after you kind of figure out what's going on, there are more surprises. The story is complex enough to keep you engaged even when you think you already pretty much know what's going on. The bonus adds to the story nicely, but the main game ends conclusively (Good Job Devs!). As with most games like this, there are 3 difficulty options. HOS are clear but well hidden. There were times when it took me a minute to find that last item! Objects are not replaced in repeat scenes, which I appreciate. PUZZLES are fun. A couple of them even related directly and plausibly to the story rather than being forced like every other puzzle, though of course there were some of those too (I mean, surely you've caught yourself thinking "Not even the most eccentric person locks their chests like this.") COLLECTABLES and MORPHING OBJECTS are very well hidden. Collectibles are fairies with leaves as wings and they tend to be hidden on the ground in close-ups, so you have to look carefully. The morphs are collected into a story book. They are also hard to find, I think because they don't morph back and forth as frequently as they do in other games. In sum, keep your eyes peeled! If there is one of either in a scene that you haven't found yet, the relevant bottle at the bottom of the screen will glow slightly. It isn't too intrusive of a hint if you don't want one, but it's there if you do. I was going to recommend Ravenwood if you like this game, but it was listed along with other games by this developer under "premium adventures" (upper right corner of game). I've played all but two on that list and they are all worth checking out. Unlike some well-known developers, Artifex Mundi has maintained a high level of quality in their games since that groundbreaking first Enigmatis. So to go beyond that list, I would recommend Child of the Forest (link at right). The story is thematically comparable to this game, and if you liked the way this CE was structured, the Child of the Forest game is structured similarly.
