Living Legends:  Wrath of the Beast

Based on both the SE and CE demos.


This 3rd game in the "Living Legends" series is based loosely on Goldilocks and the 3 Bears.  Very loosely.  Your character (a male for a change) has been having the same dream/nightmare since the death of his mother (that would be  Goldilocks) several years past (she was mauled to death by ...... bears).  This game takes place in the 17th Century.


The graphics were done very well.  The voice overs were pretty good, too, but I dislike when only the lips move ... no eye movements, etc.  Like having an entire cast of characters who've had way too much botox!  The music was melodic and hauntingly beautiful, although we have heard it before.  Sound fx were great!

Levels of Difficulty:  Casual, Advanced, Expert and Custom (although "Custom" seems to be a duplicate of the "casual" mode).

You are equipped with a map that shows 3 sections:  Fortress, Forest and Bear Lands.  The entire demo was played in the "Fortress" area.  It's very basic ..... shows where you are and where your open tasks are.  I like that it shows more than 1 task area at a time.  You also get a "crystal" that contains the memories of some of the characters in the game.  You are to unlock those memories.

The HOGs (hidden object games) were all interactive silhouettes.  The Mini Games have some new and innovative things to do, running the gamut of fairly easy to fairly difficult.

CE Bling:
Sadly lacking.  VERY sadly lacking.  There are the usual plethora of wallpapers, replayable games, music, etc.  In addition there are:

*  34 Collectible Runes.  I believe they do morph.  The "collectibles" area on the Home Page of the game (or the "menu" page) indicates that as you collect a certain number of runes, a story opens.  That would be ...... 3, 8, 16, 25 and 34 runes, respectively.

That's it.  That's all.




POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!!!!

While the village is under attack and someone is knocking at your character's door, you have to go through this and that and that and this JUST to get the key to open the door.  While 2 villagers are trying to contain a big, huge bear ...... you, again, have to go here and there and there and back again .... several times .... before you help them.  Once again!  While your father is battling a HUMONGOUS bear trying to push through the WOODEN gates to your father's farm,  off you go in a  gazillion directions before you actually help him ... and the bear gets through anyway.  Seriously?????  A real bear would have been through that gate, run off with your father and eaten him for lunch by the time you got around to helping him!  Instead, something happens to you.  Karma is a "b****", I guess.  LMAO!


Is this a story about Goldilocks?  Attacking bears and why would they attack anyway?  Magic bears?  Or is this story about what happens to YOUR character????  Or is it all 3??? Ergo .... confusing.

This game is a standalone game so you do not need to have played the previous games in the series.  Although I do recommend that you try the demo, the CE will not be a purchase for me.  I like collectibles, morphing objects ..... STUFF ........... and am not really into the wallpapers, etc.  I MAY get the SE.  I just didn't get my personal "wow" factor when the demo ended.  That "OMG I HAVE to have this game!" factor.  Just wasn't there.  So, I'm on the fence on the SE but it isn't worth a CE coupon, bogo sale or whatever.

For those who really got into this "tale of a bear" ......


Enjoy!

Overall Impression:  A real sleeper.  Definitely NOT worth a CE purchase.



Where am I going? And why am I in this hand basket!!!?
