Summary: I played Dark Tales: Edgar Allen Poe's The Premature Burial. I could NOT wait to get my hands on another Poe story. This game definitely makes my top ten list of one of the worst. The graphics are very nice, but it is ALL hidden objects frame after frame after frame after frame.... It's ridiculous! The challenge? Find the objects. That's it. Not where to go next or figure out any crazy puzzles, etc... It is 3 stories and I just completed the first.
Summary: Purchased it, recieved it, put it on my computer, started to play it and my computer shut down! Cause- the game introduced a nice bug via the games bar you had to download to play the game. Needless to say, I really would'nt advise buying this game. Wasted time, money and patience!
Summary: This is quite a disappointment given how very wonderful Midnight Mysteries: Devil on the Mississippi (about Mark Twain) was. The art is so-so, and it's basically one Hidden Object scene after another, with few and not terribly good puzzles. After awhile you loose the thread of the story -- it's not that great, anyway -- and loose interest in the game in general.
Summary: I really enjoyed the Houdini and Mark Twain games in this series but this Poe one is really a let down.My first problem with it is that it is much shorter and feels like only half of a game compared to the other two I have played. A bigger shortfall is a lack of "re-playability" - does the game have features that make it interesting to go back and replay it several more times.
Summary: I downloaded this game from Amazon to my PC. I've tried to play this game twice and it suddenly freezes and this is the message I get.-----Access violation at address 00534E3B in Module 'Midnight Mysteries-Edgar Allen Poe Conspiracy.RWG,'Read of Address C6B1E448. If anyone knows what this means or how to fix it or what causes it to do this. Please Help. My husband and I have downloaded other games and no problem.
Summary: not a good game for me. It is just HO scene after HO scene and weird "conversations" with ghosts inbetween. I often had no idea why I had to search for items at a place and I often quit the game because I just didn´t want to search endlessly for obscurely hidden objects anymore.
Summary: Wishing I had tried it first, though $2 is not much of an outlay. The graphics are alright, but really it is not much of a game. It is almost entirely hidden pictures. You can click around randomly and find most if not all, and the hint feature will pull up the rest. I am not sure where the game component is. It is more like a weak story which you need to click to reveal the next line. The graphics are OK.
Summary: This game didn't do it for me. The graphics and the moody music are there, so those are pluses, as is the hint system with the raven (with the cat hissing and scratching at you if you go on a random click search). But I just couldn't get into the game. Waiting to get all the items on one page before the next page turns, well, I found it irritating. I've played games where there are a lot of items to find, but once one is found, another pops up and takes its place.
Summary: Looks like I am also in the minority here. I purchased this game because I love spooky HOGs. But the spooky factor in this game is only about 25% of it before it evolves to regular, non-scary scenes. In this game, the artwork is lavish and the background sounds are excellent. But there are too many interruptions with things to read. Don’t get me wrong, I like storylines, but I don’t like when it interrupts the game.
