Initially, Demon Hunter seems like a B-grade HOPA judging from its sub-par opening cutscene; but then, it gets much better. We do agree that the visual quality is not amongst the best as the graphics can be too dark and grainy at times, maybe a little cartoony as well. Still, we cannot deny that all of the locations are very attractive, the artwork is surprisingly beautiful and the hidden object scenes are very detailed. The music remains quiet most of the times, it is peaceful and relaxing – the voice overs are fine too.
The story in Demon Hunter is pretty weak; it starts out with a lot of promise but it turns shallow after that. This goes the same with the gameplay, although well-built; it is very predictable and not revolutionary by any means. The hidden object scenes are classics and some of the puzzles are challenging while most of them are not very original.
Demon Hunter is a Standard Edition game which is honestly much better than most of the weak CE games in recent memories. The developer is so generous that the game even contains a whole lot of Collector’s Edition worthy extras such as Wallpapers, Concept Art, Soundtracks, Achievements, Collectibles, replayable Hideen Objects and Puzzles as well as a 1-hour Bonus Chapter in addition to its solid 5-hour main game length.
