:santa: Hello Ana....

You are going to love this game, or maybe you already had the pleasure of playing it? I wish I had waited until after work to open it as now I don't want to go. I haven't played much as I have to get ready for work, but the little that I played........LOVE IT!! The graphics are awesome, HO scenes not to hard, not to easy. You can play expert or regular modes and the story so far got me wanting more. I am so excited. Thank you BFG for another great game. :yay12:

I bought the game this morning and have now played the whole afternoon. it's a great game, beautiful pictures, very good story and nice puzzles, not to easy, not to difficult. I have now arrived in a restaurant and that reminds me that I must stop playing and cook dinner. tonight I go on with this game.

Sounds like a good one then--games that keep you playing for hours without realizing it are the best :happydance12:

Can someone tell me the size of the game please?

I am on satellite internet so I must consider that too.

It sounds like y'all are pleased with the C.E.!


So many games, so little time.

On the link to the game, it states under requirements you need 391 mb free on your hard drive so it is not too big. Dire Grove stated you need 614 mb free.

I'm tempted to get this game because I also bought the collector's edition of Dire Grove. I could have done without the extras for Dire Grove, but I mainly paid a premium just to get the game early. I'm hoping the extras in this game are a worth the extra cost as it isn't a mcf game.

I wonder what it means by "4 additional Adventure scenes." Does it mean 4 screens with adventure elements?

On a side note, I played Dire Grove 3 times. Once by myself, Once with my Grandmother, and Once with my 9 year old cousin. He was actually able to solve the Hunter puzzle and the Blacksmith puzzle with only a little help from me.

after you've finished the game you can play a new screen with 4 levels. if you do this right, you get extra content with music, wallpapers and a preview of the next Edgar Allan Poe game. you can find this all in the option extras.

Sorry Darlene03 but left for work and didn't see your post until just now. As I stated I really didn't play that much yet to really determine what it's like......the feel though is more like RTR I think more than DG...but I will let you know for sure once I play more......I don't think it's fair for me to make a comment until I at least have played a little bit more.

I bought the game and have just started playing so don't have much to say about it yet, but it's worth noting that this game's developers are the same ones who did Puppet Show: Mystery of Joyville (a game I enjoyed very much).

Hi, Marian

I am trying to determine if its worth $20.00 dollars....

Dire grove is a Great game & worth $20.00 for the extras...Although I bought the $ 6.99 version..

So I guess the similaires to RTR & Dire grove are not the same..

This is why I like demo's...There is no way to get a feel for the game without a demo...

So I have to rely on Boomer reviews or wait for the 6.99 version.....There really should be a demo for this version... duh

BFG-Guy said today on the Big Fish forums that they do plan on having trials for upcoming CEs but that it will involve a new Game Manager update that is being worked on. So, I believe we will see trials for CEs in 2010.

After I have a chance to play the game, Darleen, I will definitely post some impressions about it and whether I think the additional cost makes this a worthwhile purchase. I needed a nice relaxing game this evening and I splurged. I'm going to play the game on expert mode and try not to use any hints or help, and hopefully it will last me a good long while. smile

Having been burned a couple of times in the past I also will not purchase without a demo, so I was glad to see that the new Game Manager will include the opportunity to demo the $19.95 Collector's Editions, particularly since BFG anticipates releasing 1 or 2 such versions per month.

I intend to rely on my experience with the demo to determine whether to purchase the $19.95 enhanced value Collector's Edition immediately or whether to wait a couple of weeks to purchase the game at a reduced price and with reduced functionality - or, I suppose, not purchase the game at all.

It means that one of the games in your Game Manager has an update/new build. Did you buy the Samantha Swift game yesterday? An update for that game was released last night. You can download the update directly from the Game Manager, and it also gives you information, I believe, what the purpose of the game update is, so that you can choose to update or not.

That's interesting, Richard; I bought Dark Tales about three hours ago and I just checked my Game Manager and it doesn't show any updates. So, I don't know why that update is showing or what it is for, but I suspect that it certainly can't hurt anything to click on it and let it do its thing. It should give you some information after you click on it about what the update is for; let me know what it says, okay? I'm curious. smile

Ok Darlene03 I played for awhile now and I still LOVE it. That being said, I don't really think it's like DG or RTR. I mean it plays the same in that it's an IHOG and the story is great and keeps you wanting to know more, but for some reason I just don't feel MCF here. That's not to say it's not a Great game in it's own right, because it is, I just don't want to compare it to either of them. I think it's worth $20.00 because I love a great game and like Marion, I needed something to play and this was it. I also splurged (Hey, it's Xmas, I deserve something). But I'm one of those that don't mind spending a little if I like it and want it now. That's just me and probably why I'm broke most of the time. I play my computer alot however so this is my outlet. Others spend alot of money on other things, I spend it on games. It's not like it happens all the time so $20.00 once in awhile for a good game is okay for me. Again, this is just me and I have no patience so I can't wait 2-3 weeks (again, probably why I'm broke most of the time). Anyhow, I hope this has helped a little. Again, I'm not the typical person and I pretty much do what I want so I may not be the best person to ask if it's worth the money or not. : )

I also just purchased the game. I have not even opened it yet but I hope it has video and voices in it like Dire. Guess I will find out shortly. Big relief others are saying it is a fun game. I loved the last Edgar Allan poe game and hoped there would be more.

EDIT......................
I have started to play the game and the graphics are very crisp and clear and beautifully done.

However for those expecting another game like dire with voice and video alas thus far it does not appear to be this one.

I can 't but help wonder what the voice of the main character would have been like. I do hope BFG will do another collectors on the caliber of Dire.

Oh well, this is still a game I highly recommend, I already love the interactivity of finding and using objects. The storyline is intriguing also.

So, the way yall are talking...
This is going to be a new 'thing' with BFG?
I just feel like $20 for a downloaded game
I can't even share w/anyone else is
a bit much to pay.
I purchased the Coll. Ed. of "Dire Grove",
and it was okay....
but there are other great games on BFG for $7 that are much better.
Like Nikopol, Syberia 1&2 and the Verne ones.
IMHO
