In this installment of Witches’ Legacy, you play as Edward, who is Lynn’s husband. Lynn has been possessed and is now in the Otherworld. As all good husbands should do, you need to follow her into the dark world and rescue her before she uses her power to destroy the world!
Six games into the series, we are now getting a little tired with the whole good witch versus bad witch story. Although the story in The Dark Throne is probably one of the more exciting ones in the franchise, we couldn’t help but feel a little bored with the same-old theme of the game.
Nonetheless, Witches’ Legacy: The Dark Throne still feature some mesmerizing visuals to keep us entertained. In fact, the graphics in this game is the best we have seen so far from this series, or even from this developer. There are a number of scenes that look totally splendid and we would totally make them our desktop wallpapers. As for the soundtracks, they are pretty dark which fit the game really well – we have nothing against the voice-overs.
Gameplay wise, Witches’ Legacy: The Dark Throne does not bring anything new to the table. The hidden object scenes are quite fun and interactive, even though you have to play most of the scenes twice. There is a nice array of puzzles, the majority of them is of medium difficulty and are fairly standard. Also, the fan-favorite Imp helper is back – helping with our obstacles through his cute animations.
One thing we appreciate in Witches’ Legacy: The Dark Throne is the amount of interactions at each location. Apart from the normal areas of interest, you can practically interact with every single object in the scenes. These interactions are definitely not necessary, but they did add some value to the game.
In case you are wondering, Witches’ Legacy: The Dark Throne is a very long game. The main game took us nearly 5 hours to complete; the bonus chapter is equally pleasant, and lasted around an hour. The Collector’s Edition has Wallpapers, Concept Art, Strategy Guide, Screensavers, Soundtracks, Collectibles and some cool Achievements.
