It was 20 years ago when Jackie’s parents, Natalia and Alexander disappeared. Now that the police has finally discovered their bodies, you can use your special time-travelling gift to go back in time and solve this mysterious case, which might involve the infamous serial roadside killer!
We always find Grim Tales games to be especially thrilling. We enjoy following different members of the Gray families – thus, after nine games, we somehow feel personally connected to these characters. In that sense, Grim Tales: Threads of Destiny succeeds. Threads of Destiny delivers a captivating story, being told through smart story sequences and professionally-written dialogs.
As always, Grim Tales: Threads of Destiny excels when it comes to presentation. The graphics are sharp and clean, every single location is filled with stunning details, attractive colors and spectacular visual effects. Threads of Destiny is a relatively quiet game – there are moments in the game that lack background music. However, when they do exist, they sound absolutely epic and fit the scenarios pretty well.
Grim Tales: Threads of Destiny does not differ much from its predecessors and from other games of its kind. The tasks we were asked to do in the adventure portion of the game were all that we have done before – and as you might have guesses, not exactly challenging. The hidden object scenes are interactive and fun, while the puzzle, which ranged from easy to moderately difficult, could have been more innovative. There is indeed, a concerning amount of backtracking – at times, the game feels tedious even with the aid of the interactive jump-map.
For advanced players, Grim Tales: Threads of Destiny should take just under 4 hours to complete. The bonus chapter, which is great, adds another seventy minutes to the total length. Other extra materials in the Collector’s Edition are achievements, collectibles, concept art, wallpapers, soundtracks, archive and the secret room.
