  1. Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Puzzling Pages is a great choice for puzzle game fans. The art, music, and narrative enhance the atmosphere.
  2. While not quite as immersive as the tower-defence style gameplay of Chaotic Conflicts, the game's unique puzzle elements do offer up a nice change of pace from the other Tales of Bearsworth Manor release.
  3. Puzzle elements are not remarkable enough, and the game is more a challenge of ability than of intelligence.
  4. Great idea, lovely design, but badly let down by seriously poor controls. [Sept 2010, p.94]
  5. Solving puzzles suits the bear-hurling format. It's a shame about the terrible motion controls though. [Aug 2010, p.76]
  6. 55
    So while the spooky style of Bearsworth Manor is sensational, both Chaotic Conflicts and Puzzling Pages fall flat in offering actual fun or real value for your dollars. Save your Wii Points for another day, and go explore a different haunted mansion instead.
  7. Its concept feels almost thrown together. [Sept 2010, p.103]
