Summary: I don't know what happened with this series ever since I finished DC4 and was like "that's it?". If only the game were any longer, it won't be critized by gamers so wildly. I had great expections for the new trilogy, but it turned out to be a huge letdown.
Summary: 2.5 stars. I loved the original Dream Chronicles games but the launch of spin off games using the book of one element at a time per game release was just not that exciting. The book of Air was so-so and didn't get a good review from me. This book of Water was just the same. It had great graphics but the story/plot was lackluster & kind of getting nowhere to being boring. It was the same usual gameplay but I was just not intrigued enough.
Summary: Graphics were beautiful, the first (only) game in the series that I played. It was a game of finding things and using them to do the next thing. It wasn't very difficult or easy. The three stars are because I didn't like how it ended abruptly and without much relativity. I won't be trying/buying the others in the series - didn't see the point. Anyway it is pleasantly different from all the ghoulish games of curses, devils, witches, magic, spirits, etc.
Summary: I've played all five currently existing editions of Dream Chronicles. The art nouveau scenes are beautiful and the puzzles are challenging, but fun. DC: Book of Water takes you to, well, places on or near the water. It's a great installment of the series and I look forward to Book of Fire when it comes out later this year.
Summary: I love all Dream Chronicles games. I always wait for the next one! The story line is great. The puzzles are terrific and the graphics are so beautiful and different then any other game has. Someone has a great imagination and I love that.
Summary: This gets 3 stars because of the graphics. The artwork is really wonderful. Other than that, the game is way too short, reuses much too much from the previous game and does too much for you. Some of the puzzles are good, the voice over isn't bad (I usually hate them), but it is definitely the weakest in the series. I hope that the Book of Fire, when it is released, is an improvement. I know that they can do better.
Summary: The art is gorgeous, but the gameplay is quite dated. You wake up in a beautiful fairy tale treehouse, but you've lost your memory -- which means your identity. A mysterious man comes to help you, via a crystal ball. However, the game offers no speaking voices, just a lot of text dialog; the hint system is poor; and you have to keep searching for really very very tiny things like itsy bitsy keys and jewels.
Summary: This was as enjoyable as the first three. Same characters are involved and some of the rooms from previous games are revisited. You are able to skip certain puzzles after a certain amount of time which I liked. I remember getting the walk thru on a previous one but that wasn't necessary on this one. I felt it was a little short. The ending ensures you that ther is more to come. Looking forward to it.
Summary: I agree with the Gamezebo review for the most part. Really disappointing length, considering the fact that the scenes were rehashed from one of the previous games. As always, beautiful scenery and decent puzzles, but they don't make up for the fact that the game is extremely uninspired. Hopefully they do better with the next one (there's a hint at the "Book of Fire", maybe they'll realize where they went wrong with this one.
