We were never big fans of the Mystery Tales series, we didn’t feel like any of the games is special and deserves such praises. Regardless, we were impressed by the storyline of Eye of the Fire. While it is certainly not the most original idea, it still manages to bring enough excitement to keep us moving forward. The constant face-off with the main villain also helps make the game more intriguing.
Despite the solid storyline, other aspects of the game are quite sub-par. There is nothing seriously wrong with the production, but it could have been much better. The artwork is amazing, but the fuzzy graphics and the odd combination of colors are certainly turn-offs. Additionally, we didn’t find the soundtracks to be very memorable either, mundane at best.
Mystery Tales: Eye of the Fire is a very well-crafted game, just not an especially exciting one. Everything in Eye of the Fire has been done before a thousand times; from the predictable gameplay to the annoying, gimmicky glasses that allows you to see the past. We do appreciate the option to switch between Easy and Hard modes in most of the puzzles. However, there is no denying that the puzzles are extremely formulaic.
It took us around 3 and a half hours to complete Mystery Tales: Eye of the Fire. The bonus chapter opened a new set of locations for us to explore and took us another 50 minutes. The Collector’s Edition of the game comes with wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, achievements, a strategy guide, collectibles, morphing objects, replayable hidden objects and a witch book.
