If you are the sort of person who gets their kicks from hidden object/puzzle games, you may get a few hours enjoyment from Dream Chronicles. However, with a hefty price tag and with better games of this style out there, you may be better off looking elsewhere.

Eigentlich ist Dream Chronicles gar nicht schlecht. Die verträumte und mystische Atmosphäre wird von der Musik klasse unterstützt und die gerenderten Hintergründe beinhalten viele Objekte zum Suchen. Dafür sind diese optisch veraltet und nicht überarbeitet. Die schreckliche Bedienung, die wirre Hintergrundgeschichte und die langweiligen Suchbilder machen das Spiel schließlich eher zu einer Qual als einem spaßigen Erlebnis. Außerdem ist der Titel mit ein wenig Anstrengung schon unter einer halben Stunde durchgespielt. Wenn ihr Fan solcher Spiele seid, tonnenweise Geduld habt und euch mit den Mängeln bei Bedienung und Technik anfreunden könnt, darf die Demoversion in eurer Warteschlange landen. Allen anderen können wir von dem Spiel leider nur abraten.

Una direzione artistica apprezzabile in linea con l'atmosfera fantasy e un comparto sonoro di buona fattura sono i pregi principali di un porting su console ambizioso ma destinato a mancare il proprio obiettivo: con una trama praticamente inutile ai fini del gioco, una longevità piuttosto esigua e un'eccessiva semplicità degli enigmi proposti che si alterna a un pixel hunting impietoso, l'adventure proposto da PlayFirst manca di profondità, ancora prima che di appeal, per far breccia persino negli appassionati del genere.

Dream Chronicles bjuder på humor, i den bemärkelsen att många gåtor är skrattretande enkla, och ett äventyr som tagit ur en saga, förslagsvis en barnsaga. Dream Chronicles är perfekt för dig som är sugen på ett leta-hitta spel (vilket ingen är) och för dig som vill kasta bort dyrbar tid.

Sadly Dream Chronicles fails to deliver for me. With a poor story, out-dated graphics and no real depth to the puzzles and with so many great titles in the genre already available for the same price, I would suggest you steer clear of this one. Spend those 800 MSP on something that isn’t going to entertain you in a single lunch break.

PlayFirst seems better suited to stick with their ipad or iphone game apps where touch screens rule supreme, than to take on some excellent games like Monkey Island or Sam & Max that make this genre feel at home on a console. The gameplay is rudimentary and doesn't provide any sort of challenge to an audience who wants more bang for their buck. With last generation inspired graphics and music that drives you crazy with any type of extended play, 800 Microsoft Points feels awfully steep. There are better Indie Games for sale on the marketplace for 75% less, like the massaging controller app. Dream Chronicles is best suited for your HDD as a demo only since it doesn't contain any affirmative qualities that warrant a full purchase.

There is ultimately nothing here to make me recommend Dream Chronicles. It's a bad port of a PC game that feels lazy. When other casual games are dominating both the PC and XBLA (Plants vs. Zombies, Bejeweled, Peggle), Dream Chronicles really misses how to make a casual game fun. It's uninspired, boring, and way too simple for its own good.

The puzzle themselves, too, are usually hilariously basic, or are just drawn out and tedious, like having to play seven piano loops back, one after the other. But the really depressing thing about PlayFirst's spirit-crushing little game is that it'll probably sell enough to result in a deluge of the bloody things, and force us to question the sanity of mankind. Again.

Dream Chronicles will appeal to a very niche audience. Unless you want a watered down point and click adventure title with no voice overs and an uninteresting story, you do not fall into that niche. It’s a joke that this game costs 800 Microsoft points when I can’t imagine anyone, even fans of this genre, playing this game for more than an hour or two. I wanted to like Dream Chronicles, but this XBLA port feels rushed and uninspired. PlayFirst couldn’t even add button controls to the opening menu screen. And if the developers aren’t going to put effort into porting such a simplistic title, I can’t recommend anyone actually taking the time to play it.
