In Myths of the World: The Whispering Marsh, you play the County Bounder sent to investigate a series of mysterious disappearances near the Whispering Marsh in Germany. Is this the work of the mythical legend ‘The Lantern Man’, or a setup by a villain?
Myths of the World has always been one of our favorite series from our friends at Eipix – each installment takes us on a new journey through a refreshing setting. The Whispering Marsh is a very captivating game for many reasons. Firstly, the story is really solid in this one. While the main plot has definitely been done a million times, there are enough interesting details and fascinating backstories integrated into the story that make The Whispering Marsh a very hooking game.
Moreover, the production in The Whispering Marsh is second to none. The visuals are absolutely stunning – with gorgeous colors and classy art style – The Whispering Marsh is certainly a feast for the eye. Besides, the animations of the characters are very smooth, the cutscenes are extremely well-executed and the visual effects are spectacular! The soundtracks are equally wonderful; they really help build up the suspense and the creepiness in the atmosphere.
However, no game is perfect. Myths of the World: The Whispering Marsh might have the some of the best sights and sounds, but its gameplay is a little bit underwhelming. On one hand, the multi-layered hidden object scenes are very entertaining, as well as creative. The puzzles also come in a variety of formats, and range in difficulties. On the other hand, the adventure part of the game is fairly linear and disappointingly easy. There is also no notable innovation, nearly every single task looks familiar to us.
It took us around 4 hours to complete the main game, and another 50 minutes to finish the excellent bonus chapter. The Collector’s Edition of Myths of the World: The Whispering Marsh comes with a handful of extras; achievements, collectibles, strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, making of video, mahjong, replayable puzzles, soundtracks, lore book, cutscenes and replayable hidden object scenes.
