Having just escaped from the Dark Army at the end of Darkness and Flame: The Dark Side, Alice found herself waking up alone from a surreal dream. In this unfamiliar new reality in which her friends are corrupted by the monster’s curse, Alice needs to rely on her strengths and wits more than ever. Can Alice survive her most dangerous adventure yet in Darkness and Flame: Enemy in Reflection – the latest installment in FIVE-BN Games‘ Hidden Object series?
Darkness and Flame is arguably one of the HOPA’s genre most consistently acclaimed series and this fourth chapter definitely continues that trend. The post-apocalyptic theme was a mainstay through the previous three games. However, with Enemy in Reflection, the series takes a slight left turn to focus more on the actual adventure rather than all the dystopian glitz and glamor. While the series loses some of its distinctive qualities by having less dystopian elements, the storyline in this chapter is complex, fast-paced, and intriguing all the same.
As expected, the production values are superb. With lifelike animations and massive scale locations, Darkness and Flame: Enemy in Reflection feels like a Hidden Object Adventure epic like no other. If only the characters were more realistic-looking and the graphics were sharpened up a little bit, this will look very much like a Hollywood blockbuster. On the audio side, the game is simply flawless. The background music effectively builds suspense and the voice-overs are fantastic.
If you enjoyed the previous Darkness and Flames games, you are most likely going to love this one as well. The creative hidden object scenes and the challenging puzzles together with a thoughtful gameplay, create an exciting and engaging experience. All the way through its four-hour runtime, Darkness and Flame: Enemy in Reflection keeps raising its stakes – there is not a moment of boredom in this game.
With Darkness and Flame: Enemy in Reflection, the Collector’s Edition is definitely the way to go. The extras section includes a thrilling 50-minute bonus chapter, a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, videos, replayable puzzles, bonus tile-sliding mini-games, achievements, collectibles, and morphing objects.
Darkness and Flame: Enemy in Reflection wows with its breathtaking production, stellar gameplay, and excellent world-building. Another win in FIVE-BN’s basket!
