Mythic Wonders is a new fantasy adventure game by Organic 2 Digital, the same team who has brought us Vampire Legends last year. This game is completely opposite to their previous work though, Mythic Wonders is bright, magical and beautiful!
Name: Mythic Wonders: The Philosopher's Stone Collector's Edition
Release Date: 05 January 2014
Developer: Organic 2 Digital
The base story in Mythic Wonders is nothing truly original to be excited about, travel to fantasy realms, we surely have done that before. However, the way the developer presents it in the game makes Mythic Wonders unexpectedly interesting to play.
The graphics are wonderful, they are very beautiful and cheerful. Still, they are not mind-blowing and are not the best we have seen in fantasy HOPAs, we feel like the colors can be a little faded and pale at times - anyways, the visuals are definitely lovely. There are a lot of dialogues in this game, especially the ones from our heroine - the voice overs are well done as well as the soundtracks.
Mythic Wonders: The Philosopher's Stone is fun to play, offers us a little more challenge than some of the games lately. The Hidden Object scenes cone in various types, there is a jump map included, morphing objects to find and achievements to collect - all of the expected features are there as you can see. On the bottom left side of the screen, you also have the access to your power elements which can help you complete your quests along the way.
On the other hand, although the puzzles are nice - they do have problems. Most, if not, all of the puzzles do not have a Reset button. We occasionally stuck trying to complete the puzzles, you basically cannot make a single wrong move, which is pretty frustrating. Also, there are only two difficulty modes in this game - we probably got spoiled by three modes or the custom mode being offered recently.
As for the CE value, it depends how much you enjoy the game. All of the CE extras are very typical, and despite the solid Bonus Chapter, it is not necessary to complete the story. We still feel though, that Mythic Wonders lacks some bells and whistles.
With beautiful sights and enjoyable gameplay, Mythic Wonders: The Philosopher's Stone is definitely worth playing. Nonetheless, we would recommend only the Standard Edition since the extras are all the norm and the WOW factor is missing. But as usual, do try it for yourself!
