You have just landed in your hometown, Amsterdam, when your old friend called you asking for help with a series of ritualistic murders. As an investigator with psychic abilities, can you withstand the dark forces and catch this vicious serial killer? From the developer of Whispered Secrets and Reflections of Life, comes a new mystery – The Unseen Fears: Body Thief.
The main plot in The Unseen Fears: Body Thief is certainly not original, the concept of supernatural murders has been overdone by the HOPA genre. However, what makes The Unseen Fears stand out from the rest of its kind is the delivery. GrandMA Studios manages to breathe life into this recycled plotline and makes it their own. There is something happening at every turn on the road, the characters all have their own fascinating backstory, and the fast-paced nature of the storytelling keeps us hooked.
It also does not hurt that The Unseen Fears: Body Thief has amazing sights and sounds. The graphics are elegantly drawn and vibrantly colored, the animations are top-shelf, and the special effects are spectacular. While we do find some of the voice-overs to be a little unnatural, the quality of the audio overall offsets that minor flaw.
Avid HOPA players are not likely to find The Unseen Fears: Body Thief very challenging, especially during the adventure portion of the game. Still, the game delivers some of the most creative hidden object scenes we have seen as of late, and the puzzles are also pretty solid. Furthermore, The Unseen Fears: Body Thief includes the ability for you to see the “unseen” – an increasingly helpful feature as you progress through this thrilling adventure.
The standard section of The Unseen Fears: Body Thief took us around four hours to master. The Collector’s Edition also comes with two bonus chapters, which lasted around one hour in total length. Other bonuses include a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, movies, achievements, collectibles, replayable hidden object scenes, and replayable puzzles.
