One of the reason's I liked this game better than the last, is that there are a ton of Mini Games, most of which are super easy. Music wise, carries the mood of the game very well. I Love this game and find it to be the perfect way to spend a rainy Saturday morning, in fact I had to pull myself away to finish my housework. Yes, the game will be a buy for me.
I don't like to give too much detail about the specific HOPS or puzzles because it is far more fun to discover for yourself what a game holds in store for you. I hope all fellow gamers have a good and very healthy 2017. Graphics are really nice in this game, though, just like the animations. The graphics are beautiful and, yes, icy but perfect for a cold and rainy day here in my town.
The Mini Games are very doable, most are of good length and entertaining. There is a good jump map available, that shows where an available task is located, The puzzles are more challenging, and they are smartly integrated into the storyline. Music is soothing until something is either happening or about to happen, then it cuts loose.
The scenes are fairly clear and items are not difficult to find. Most of the HOP's offer a small interactive puzzle to solve. Dark Realm: Guardian of Flames does not disappoint when it comes to length either. Playing on the easiest mode, we spent over six hours on the main game. As always, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story to others to review.
I really got into the story when the demo ended. This Collector's Edition has 9 Achievements to earn, 14 VG Team pictures, 11 Music Soundtracks, 6 Wallpapers, 12 Concept Art pictures, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy! The graphics are excellent with good voiceovers but it is a bit odd that the lip-syncing seems to be a hit or miss sort of thing. Many of the scenes offer Panoramic views, where you can scroll further to the left or right in an attempt to make the player feel like they are actually there.
This Collector's Edition has 10 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art pictures, 9 Avatars, 6 Screensavers, 16 replayable Mini Games, 4 Music Soundtracks, 22 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, a built in Strategy Guide, a Bonus Chapter. Each game in this series has a little different story line and they have all been interesting. Game play was excellent. I'm really liking what I'm seeing from this new game.
They were creative.
