The acclaimed post-apocalyptic adventure series from Mad Head Games is back with its third installment. This time, Tara is joined by Lennart at the village of Spite, the headquarter of the rebellions. For years, the Society has ruled the world with violence and injustice, and it is time for the rebels to rise! Will Tara and Lennart be able to reach the Elven Queen before the power-hungry rulers of the Society do?
We still remember how we were blown away by the first Dawn of Hope game, and while the second game did not hold the same magic, we still have high expectations for this series. Dawn of Hope: The Frozen Soul brings us back into the dystopian world for another exciting adventure. The storyline is a clever hybrid between fantasy and sci-fi with just the right amount of thrills, actions, and twists. The immersive environment always keeps us on the edge of our seat and the intriguing storytelling style makes the game as addicting as ever.
It is also worth noting how gorgeous Dawn of Hope: The Frozen Soul looks. The imaginative artwork, the bold colors, and the extravagant special effects all work together to create a breathtaking visual experience. The audio is no less impressive, enhancing the game through subtle, but effective soundtracks as well as stellar voice-overs.
No game is perfect, and so Dawn of Hope: The Frozen Soul has its fair share of flaws. On one hand, the adventure portion of the gameplay is surprisingly complex and entertaining. On the other hand, the hidden object scenes and the puzzles are quite disappointing. Although quite enjoyable, none of the hidden object scenes and the puzzles are challenging and certainly feel like a let-down considering the out-of-this-world theme of the game. Dawn of Hope: The Frozen Soul also includes a special gadget, which allows you to freeze or unfreeze objects. This is gimmicky and out-of-place at best and adds zero value to the game.
Dawn of Hope: The Frozen Soul has a run-time of roughly four and a half hours – a satisfying length. The Collector’s Edition also comes with all kinds of extras; a one-hour bonus chapter, a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, character gallery, soundtracks, replayable Hidden Object scenes, Mine games, achievements, collectibles, and morphing objects.
Despite stumbling slightly in terms of challenge, Dawn of Hope: The Frozen Soul is still an incredibly polished and brilliantly entertaining game.
