    BASED ON COMPLETED GAME

    Interesting, Engrossing, & Beautiful

    I loved the opening video to this game, but I’m blowed if I understand its relevance to the story that follows. The story was handled particularly well, I thought. Not just dialogue, but also video, notes and narration from the ‘respected Raven’ Hamlet, spread out well throughout the game. Never boring, even on my second playing. I like what this series does with slightly exotic legends, adding a little credibility to the story through recognisable bad guys.

    Everyone else has told you how beautiful this game certainly is, its graphics, cutscenes and sound content are all first class. Have just finished my second playing, and I’m as thrilled as the first. And tired – this is a long game. There weren’t so many locations, but there was a lot to do in each, with plenty of interactive HOs and new, intriguing but not overly difficult puzzles.

    Some of what makes this game special is the Book Of Fire. Not only is it an invaluable weapon against this icy goddess, it comes with a new type of mini-game that is excellent fun. I hope to see more of it. The game also has few of the usual clichés – I’m not sure, but I think there was only code to collect.

    Although it has no journal, it’s not missed, and the interactive jump map will get you where you need to go.

    Bonus Content Review

    Bonus game play was short (about 25% of the main game), included 4 new locations and 7 old ones (but they were all radically altered). The story itself is a little odd, more fanciful than the main game, but fun anyway. I’m glad I bought the CE.

    The other extras included are:

    Strategy Guide – very good. I didn’t use it often, but to push for all the achievements, I used it instead of Hint

    Achievements – The usual

    Collectible Goblins – Not easy to find, 22 in all, one per scene. Last page of SG will give locations.

    Wallpaper (excellent), Screensaver, Concept Art, Music
