Name: Dark Romance: Heart of the Beast Collector's Edition
Release Date: 24 April 2015
Developer: Domini Games
Dark Romance 2 definitely has a pretty intriguing story, which is told through two perspectives - Beatrice and the Prince. This unique feature was also included in the previous installment, and we are glad to see its comeback in this sequel. The problem with the plot though, is that apart from the two main characters and the witch; other characters are fairly unmemorable. We also found the voices of the characters to be very average, they could have been more exciting.
The presentation is one of the strongest aspects of the game. The graphics are basically wonderful, with bright colors that are not overwhelming and enough details to keep our eyes glued to the screen. However, they do look a little bit fuzzy, especially in the adventure scenes. In addition, the soundtracks flow well with the mood of the game, very beautiful indeed.
The gameplay of Dark Romance 2 is similar to those of other games in the genre. The adventure part is neither groundbreaking nor super challenging, but it is certainly professionally executed. The hidden object scenes are slightly more difficult, they come in a variety of formats and featured a Match-3 option. On the other hand, the puzzles are the same-old and dead easy - in fact, most of them can be solved quickly without the need to look at the instructions.
The Collector's Edition includes three different sets of collectibles, achievements, concept art, wallpapers, strategy guide and soundtracks. The bonus chapter is 50-minute long, while the main game took us only a little over 3 hours to complete.
Dark Romance: Heart of the Beast has an engaging plot and delightful visuals, but lacks the challenge and the wow factor.
