At an opening of a new exhibition featuring an ancient artifact at Deborah Whitwick’s historical museum, an unknown virus has leaked and infected all the attendants. Two weeks later, this deadly virus has spread all over the continent and legend has it that it can only be cured with the heart of the Tree of Might. Can you locate the Tree of Might and put an end to this epidemic?
FIVE-BN is definitely one of the most consistent developers in terms of delivering quality HOPA games, and The Legacy: The Tree of Might does not disappoint. The game starts out with what at first feels like a generic plotline; another contagious virus, another cure that needs to be found. Luckily, as the game progresses, it expands into a much more fascinating and complex Sci-Fi story. This is mostly done through richly developed characters and intriguing storytelling style.
The Legacy: The Tree of Might surely features a heavy load of cutscenes and dialogues. But rest assured, because that rarely translates into hand-holding. In fact, The Legacy: The Tree of Might is quite a challenging game. The adventure gameplay is logical and smart, without resorting to an excessive amount of backtracking. Similarly, the multi-layered hidden object scenes are both clever and entertaining – we actually wish there were more of them in the game. Compared to the hidden object scenes, the puzzles are simpler and more familiar, but are still creative enough to showcase FIVE-BN’s eye for detail.
As expected, The Legacy: The Tree of Might’s sights and sounds are top-notch. The slight fuzzy quality of the visuals is made up by incredibly lifelike animations, epic special effects, and breathtaking location design. The soundtracks are equally mind-blowing, and the voice-overs are definitely some of the best in the genre.
The Legacy: The Tree of Might hooked me right in from the first second and never let go. I completed the game in one sitting, with the timer clocking in four hours. The bonus chapter serves as a decent prequel to the main game and it is relatively long with a length of roughly 80 minutes. The Collector’s Edition comes with all the usual; a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, cutscenes, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects, bonus puzzles, and replayable mini-games.
