Riddles of Fate: Wild Hunt

Elephant Games is back with a brand new potential series, Riddles of Fate. In Wild Hunt, you will get to investigate the town of Osville where the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are out roaming the streets in search for a young girl. 

The story consists of many interesting twists and it develops pretty fast through dialogues and note pages. The voice overs of the characters are great most of the times while there are few characters that sound a little odd, however, it is a pity that the characters do not move their lips when they speak as the still images are quite unpleasant to look at. 

Anyway, Elephant Games still continue to deliver us with gorgeous visuals. All the scenes in this game are very crisp, beautiful and extremely detailed. The music is absolutely stunning as well as the game's amazing visual effects.

Riddles of Fate is not a HOG-heavy game as it mostly focuses on the Adventure side. Despite that, the Hidden Object scenes are yet fun to play and are very made. The puzzles are fine although they are not very original and are not very challenging. What annoying about this game is that there is a ton load of backtraking as you are trying to complete objectives and collect objects. There is an interactive map offered but it does not show us where the actions are needed at the time. 

Due to the game's repetitiveness and simplicity, Riddles of Fate can very well be a short game for expert players which can be completed under 3 hours. Luckily, the Bonus Chapter has a solid 1 hour length in spite of its not-so-good storyline. 

Riddles of Fate: Wild Hunt is a game developed with care but it does nothing to really stand out. This is definitely not the developer's best work but it is still worth at least a try!
