Maestro: Dark Talent is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Let's (Not) Go to the Opera! The game starts with "dark spirits" hunting for a grave, which happens to be for "Diva". Upon finding it, they dig it up and bring her back to life. Though the story doesn't end there. It turns out that Diva's singing has the power to drain the "life essence" out of you, and that this was the reason why she was banned from performing in life. As a spirit, however, she needs to find a body. And this is when someone sets their eyes on your friend. Now you have to save her and the rest of Diva's victims! Insert tragic backstory with a twist. Discover the truth about the past and this mysterious man.You're given an amulet by a man who is also investigating Diva, and he's hidden the gems that power it throughout the city. I would have enjoyed that more if they didn't break every single time you used it, causing it to be useless until you found some more gems. Diva's story is...sad... and I'm torn on how I feel about it. Still, as far as games in the Maestro series go, I did enjoy this one. If you're interested, I'd recommend trying the demo first before you buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great graphics, but... Technically this is a great game. There weren't any bugs and player controls are steady; there aren't any of those fiddly click/drag problems. ERS has done its usual fantastic job with the artwork: drawings and actual animation are tops. Static/textbox "dialogue", so no out-of-sync lip movements to disturb that impression. The downside: The important characters each have one face, no matter what is happening; only Kate has 2. Sound: The environmental sounds change abruptly and were often grating. The music is repetitive and doesn’t really match anything. The voices are only ok. The male helper is almost whispering. Kate, in particular, sounds half asleep, definitely not frightened/excited. Maybe that’s just as well, because Kate spends about 1/4 of the game play standing on the opera house staircase (Face 2) being threatened by boggles while you, the detective, stumble around the same 5-6 scenes trying to get stuff to complete pictures, locks, etc. When you finally find enough jewels to deal with the boggles, Kate has apparently gone quietly to her seat inside the theater (Face 1). The whole game is like that. There are 5-6 sets of scenes, each with a multitude of broken/ blocked/ locked/incomplete things. You search/collect/fix/complete/open and then move on (mostly with an empty inventory). So while there is a lot of backing and forthing, it is within a set of scenes, with rare backtracking to an earlier set. And you don’t carry stuff around for long, a plus. Downside: that means you throw utility items away…HOW many boxes of matches? I was playing full screen, and map indicators were VERY hard to see. When I clicked on a major “place” and squinted really hard, I could see task completion or task action indicators. Clicking on the Map often just triggered Hints. Hints simply point the way to the next place where action was needed. None of this was really an issue. After I figured out the game play, I was rarely stymied. I had the Walk-through, but used it only for 3 puzzles. A plus for me: The puzzles were numerous and some were moderately challenging. There were a couple of puzzle variations I have not encountered. One let me select Casual or Hard. A few of the puzzles had Reset, and Directions, but many did not. One I found impossible, because after I finally figured out the unusual way the pieces moved, I already had the wrong sequence of movements going. There was no way of reaching the solution without Reset so I Skipped it. HOS sparkles were almost hysterical in their intensity! The often-repeated HOS were less numerous than the puzzles (fine by me), were bright and not particularly cluttered. I appreciated the HOS interactivity and other-than-list variations, but those seemed to peter out by the end of the game. There weren’t any of those off-the-wall item names, and items mostly fit the time period, though there were some slips towards the end. The Match-2 was an easy HOS alternative when my tired eyes could not find the last couple of items. Glad I waited for the SE. This was too short a game for CE prices. I’ll keep this for another more play-through… with no hysterical sparkles or near-invisible map indicators.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Short Even though the game was fun and the visuals were good, it was way too short. Definitely not worth the money!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from JUST GOOD ENOUGH BASED ON DEMO ONLY: This seems to be one of the best of the offerings we've had lately, at least for me. Playing on the easiest level, the hint and skip buttons filled quickly enough, although I do wish this developer would give players a choice of custom settings as some others have done. I did run across a couple of mini-games that gave no instruction nor could they be skipped, but those were straightforward enough to figure out what to do. I thought the game was a bit clunky at times, especially following the cut scenes. I think some fishies will find this game too easy for their tastes, but I'm happy to have a game that doesn't involve fairies, talking piggy banks, nor HOS that cause me to go blind looking for objects.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh... The game was a bit of a disappointment to me, I have played all other Maestro games before and bought the game immediately. I must say it was a mistake to buy it, 1 hour play is enough cause it doesn't get any better and finishes too quickly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Half a Game A very brief poor excuse for a game. Despite the short length I was glad when it was over. The locations were brief, the puzzles not very challenging or interesting. It's playable, but nothing amazing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a bad "little" game I usually do not do reviews. I enjoyed the game as I do all ERS games, but I'm sorry to say it was too short. Glad I got it free.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This Diva doesn't have what it takes I'm sure I have played other Maestro games but they were probably as bad as this one and that is why I can't remember them. This is a definite forget me game. Game play is your typical back and forth find this to do this type of game that gets nowhere and accomplishes nothing. Kate gets trapped when the opera house starts to collapse and you have to save her but, wait, you have to run off and do these 20 other things first and then, maybe, you can save her. Sorry Kate. Characters are about as exciting as watching grass grow except growing grass actually moves. No emotion at all except for Kate and hers is limited to a couple hand gestures. Although this is not drawn in the dark colors that seems to be prevalent in HO's these days, these colors seem to be washed out and bland. Detail is pretty good though. Although some gamers seem to rate this rather high, I can't agree. The excitement just isn't there for me and I have played probably hundreds of this type of game and this is about average compared to the others. I don't recommend this game, like I said, because of lack of excitement but I encourage you to play the demo and decide for yourself. But do yourself a favor first, play the demo before you decide to buy. Have fun!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Easy This game, playable wise is too easy. The puzzles are not difficult at all. It wasn't challenging even on the hardest difficulty. The story feels half baked, and is predictable. The characters' voices felt like a tack on. The time played for this game is very short. I finished both the main story and the bonus game in less than 2 hours and that's with listening to all the dialog and watching the cut-scenes. If you want a more challenging game don't play this one. If you're new to the whole hidden object gaming scene then this is the game for you. You don't need to play the other Maestro games to understand what's going on, but it might be helpful to understand the letter scene. Other than that, Maestro Dark Talent could have used more work in developing the story, mini games, voices, and everything else. If you really like the Maestro series, skip over this one, it's not worth darkening your love for Maestro with this game.
