[PS4] Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride Review
Grim Legends: The Foresaken Bride is another release from Artifex Mundi for PlayStation 4. Are you looking for a rich story and some very colorful and vibrant graphics? Then read our Grim Legends: The Foresaken Bride to learn more about this one!
One dark and very stormy night a woman runs through the darkness of a forest. As she is perched quite precariously on the edge of a crevasse, she looks at her ring and throws the it into this bottomless crevasse. She wasn’t as alone as she thought she was… an evil entity was waiting in the shadows. You’ll have to play the game to see what happens next, but rest assured that the story for the game is something you’ll enjoy.
This one is a standard point and click game where you need to search a variety of locations for clues and items that will help you solve puzzles. There is a nice variety of puzzles for this one, from the expected hidden objects puzzles to those with interactive items or for fragmented pictures that must be put back together in the correct order. You also have the option of playing the dominoes mini-games instead of the hidden object puzzles if, well, if you really don’t like hidden object puzzles.
At the start of the game, you will have a feline companion who is capable of reaching places you can’t, or who can go to places you would rather not enter. If you get stuck, try clicking on the kitten and see if he does anything. If it can, it will leave his place and disappear into the game’s backdrop on your behalf.
As with the previous titles from Artifex Mundi, this one follows the same general formula. Every item you collect has a use, and it will certainly help you to complete a puzzle. Click on everything, check everything. Sometimes clicking on things will provide you with valuable information. Sometimes it will give you an item that is required for progressing in the game.
You can skip puzzles if you are not a very patient person, but doing so will prevent you from getting that all important Platinum trophy since skipping puzzles will lock you out of some trophies. Speaking of trophies, you’ll also need to complete the game on expert. The only difference between playing in normal and playing in expert is that expert mode penalizes you for your mistakes and hints charge at a much slower pace.
All in all, I have had a blast playing Grim Legends: The Foresaken Bride. Once I completed the main game, I unlocked an extra story which was certainly a pleasant surprise! There’s plenty to do in this game and lots of puzzles to solve, not to mention that being able to play the dominoes game instead of the hidden objects puzzles will make it so that anyone can enjoy the game’s story and setting. I’m sure being able to skip puzzles is also a big plus for some of you, but you’ll have to remember you’ll lock yourself out of the Platinum trophy and will need to do a second run if you want it.
