You’ve just arrived home to discover that a witch named Cassandra has cursed your family. You and your mother have been cursed with an aging spell that causes the body to rapidly deteriorate. Your sister, Nikki, has also been kidnapped by Cassandra. Now you need to hunt down Cassandra and lift this deadly curse from your family, but you must do so before your body crumbles to dust!
To kick things off, we want to say that we were never big fans of the Witches’ Legacy series. It is an undeniable fact that the series is an extremely successful one, but somehow we just couldn’t get into it. Well, Elefun Games has finally managed to convert us into fans after this one!
Unlike the previous installments, Witches’ Legacy: Awakening Darkness does not tell a story that revolve around the beloved heroine, Lynn Watson, but rather her husband. Kudos to the developers for morphing the saga into something more refreshing, without straying too far from the original plot. As said, we are more excited about the plot in this installment than we did in the past with its predecessors – there was not a single moment of boredom from the start to finish.
Witches’ Legacy has always featured quite an odd theme; one that is on the verge between horror and humor. Awakening Darkness basically takes that concept one step further, and things are even more bizarre in this game. Throughout the game, you will be able to interact with peculiar characters, deal with weird situations and witness many quirky things. Moreover, we really appreciate all those random animations and interactions in each scene – they might not be necessary, but they help freshen things up.
As expected, the production of Witches’ Legacy: Awakening Darkness is top-notch. The graphics are wonderful, with just enough use of vibrant colors to keep the energy up. The cinematics and most of the animations are also well-done, even though we have seen better. We have nothing against the audio in this game, nor we feel like they are anything to write home about.
The only major flaw in Witches’ Legacy: Awakening Darkness is the slight lack of challenge. The adventure portion is straightforward, the puzzles are easy, the hidden object scenes introduced some interesting concepts, but are also easy. Nonetheless, Witches’ Legacy: Awakening Darkness is an entertaining game through and through.
Witches’ Legacy: Awakening Darkness took us about four hours to complete, and the bonus chapter took us another hour – a pretty standard length. The Collector’s Edition includes a strategy guide, achievements, screensavers, collectibles, concept art and soundtracks.
