There was never a moment of boredom playing the game. The Hidden Object Scenes are mostly Interactive List finds, the scenes are beautifully drawn and there are a ton of interactive items. I really got into the story when the demo ended. Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poes Morella does not disappoint when it comes to length either. Playing on the easiest mode, we spent over six hours on the main game.
The Strategy Guide, of course, tells you where they are. The Collector's Edition is also quite rewarding, it includes a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, a screensaver, soundtracks, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects, and a secret room. The game flowed quite well and is very easy to follow. Oh, and if you just don't like HOPS, you can always switch to a mini game to help complete the scenes.
Yes, the game will be a buy for me. Don't forgot to look for the Morphing Object in each scene. I actually don't mind easy puzzles, as long as they are fun. But if you want an easy, funny game then this game is perfect for you.
The graphics weren't all that bad. Game development team did a brilliant job getting the player to feel involved with the story and connected to the protagonist. Puzzles are simple and don't take any brain power to complete, but done well. The sound doesn't manage to match the top quality of the graphics, unfortunately.
what I like is a good balance between slightly more challenging gameplay elements and easier ones. If you prefer the CE version of games the Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poes Morella has collectibles, artifacts and morphing objects to be found. I Love this game and find it to be the perfect way to spend a rainy Saturday morning, in fact I had to pull myself away to finish my housework. They were creative.
You have an interactive, transporter type map to help you move quickly between locales. Many of the scenes offer Panoramic views, where you can scroll further to the left or right in an attempt to make the player feel like they are actually there. As always, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story to others to review. The HOPS are absolutely a delight with items that are well depicted.
The storyline does a nice job also.
