DARK PARABLES – CURSE OF BRIAR ROSE Collector’s Edition

by BLUE TEA GAMES; BIGFISH GAMES

Jud’s Game Rating:

Graphics **** Player participation (PP) ***** Satisfaction Factor (SF) *****

Frustration Factor (FF) **   Fair Play (FP) ***  Tedium Factor (TF) *

Like DARK PARABLES -Rise of the Snow Queen, CURSE OF BRIAR ROSE is excellent.  It is gripping, the story is well integrated with the Gameplay, there are extra items to collect, and the Hidden Objects are in fragments of items you will need in your Inventory.  There are no ridiculous items to collect – they all belong to the story and game.

There is much to-ing and fro-ing but that adds to Player Participation, though it can become rather tiresome after a while.

My only quibble is with the dark, gloomy, and blurry graphics for the HO sites.  There are always a few last parts that are almost impossible to see.  This is a little frustrating and wears you down a bit as the playing continues.  It spoils the game and is unnecessary.  The game  should be allowed to be a pleasurable experience instead  of a frustrating one.

I enjoyed it, and was peeved when my time ran out.  I really recommend it.
