Grim Tales The Wishes CE Review

Pros: Grim Tales The Wishes continues to provide an enjoyable HO adventure, as the previous 2 episodes. With the next installment in your sister’s story. This time helping her to save her son from an evil presence! There are plenty of challenging puzzles and mini-games throughout. And interactive HO scenes to play. The story begins is a seemingly normal neighborhood. But quickly moves to unusual and fairy-tale like locations. From swamps and forests to huge secret underground passages. All depicted with gorgeous and colorful artwork. The music and sound effects add to the atmosphere and suspense. And even if you play in casual mode, you get hours of gameplay.

Cons: I personally found the voice-over acting a little clumsy. And sometimes the dialog in the cut-scenes, especially with the nephew, Brandon. Were a little off-putting when the visuals didn’t play in sync with the voice-over. I also found the puppet’s voice a bit grating!

Overall: Apart from the minor issues with the voice-overs! I found Grim Tales The Wishes a fun and challenging game. With all the high quality of visual, sound, game play variety, story line and length. That you would expect from a great hidden object puzzle adventure game!
