Customer Reviews
Dark Realm: Guardian of Flames is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from THE GAME AND FEATURES ARE AVERAGE BUT I LOVE THE STORYLINE OF DARK REALM Mad Head games never disappoint me, and right from the get go, this has been one of my favorite MH games as far as storylines go. The last couple of games in this series have been a wee bit too easy for my personal tastes, and some of the characters tend to be a bit hokey at times, but if you play this game from the beginning, I'm sure you will enjoy the storyline as well. This game is a solid game throughout, nothing spectacular, but decent enough. I purchased this game in the CE version during a 2 for 1 sale, however, this Standard Edition version is the better value, not just because of the price, but because the CE extras aren't worthy of twice as much money. Here's a recap of my review so you can decide which version, if either is right for you: Queen Valera is the last remaining Mage of the Firewielders, sworn to protect their world from evil, by harnessing the elements of nature to cast spells. The first Mage of the Firewielders, Erasmus, was the Master of eternal flame. Because of his unique abilities and life commitment, the Firewielder lineage became the strongest of all Mages. Erasmus was the only Mage capable of closing the seal that was breached, between our world and the Dark Realm, which allowed Azomond the Dark Lord to enter the Kingdom. The Dark Lord has been banished to the depths of the Dark Realm for a long time, long enough to gather an army of evil minions, and plan his next resurrection, Vae Victis! Yes, this story has been told a thousand times, in a thousand different scenarios, but somehow, Mad Head games was able to pull this one off, making the plot just interesting enough to play it for the 1,001th time. I Beta tested this game a while back, and they did change one Collector's Edition collectible, which was a colorful Leaf in the beta version, but is now a Jigsaw Puzzle piece. I'm not sure why they made this change, perhaps the colorful Leaf was too apparent, but I actually preferred the leaf over the bland jigsaw puzzle piece. I also found the graphics to be crisper and more colorful, than in the beta version. The Collector's Edition also offers a Morphing Object within the Hidden Objects Scenes, which is a feature I love, but hate when only offered in the HOP's, mainly because I get too wrapped up in the scene and forget to look for them, and you can't go back to find them once the HOS is over. The Hidden Object Scenes are in classic Mad Head form, they always have the same style to them with the same music, but in a good way. Mad Head always has some interesting scenes with interesting interactions. A couple of my favorite scenes required interacting with trap doors, sliding figurines, and even opening a skeleton dinosaurs mouth to find different symbols, and another scene where you had to pick up items in one cubicle, open up another, and replace the items in three different drawer pull outs. There were also Interactive List Finds that left fragments behind to collect, finding 4 of each symbol on each page of a story, and even Spot the Difference between a painting and the scene itself. One scene I thought was actually challenging was finding valves and gadgets that matched the silhouetted shapes shown on a panel, and some of the valves were hard to find because there were so many similar shaped valves. Most of the HOS have a Morphing Object available which is another typical feature for Mad Head. The Mini Games are decent, and doable, ranging from super simple to medium difficulty. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Recreate the constellations in the clue by selecting a point of light and placing it on an available spot. 2) Recreate the tiles based on the clue shown, using the press to to form and forge the tile pieces. 3) Use a map to navigate the labyrinth, using objects you find to interact with different tasks. 4) Repeat the sequence order of symbols as demonstrated. 5) Pick the lock by using rotational arrows. 6) Spot the difference between the painting and the scene.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprising High Quality SE Game Although I get tired of all the demons, magic, etc. themed games, this one was a definite buy after completing the demo. Great graphics Challenging puzzles and objectives No running needlessly back and forth to fulfill tasks Good voice acting

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good but too easy/short Looks good, sounds good but not enough of it. Finished it in about 3 hours first time and there's no real replayability as once you've done it's easy to do it again no matter what difficulty setting you use. Don't buy if you want a challenge but good for newbies to the genre or for children. Would prefer to neither recommend nor not recommend but have to pick one so on the basis that there are better examples out there .....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Couldn't wait to finish Most times I'm quite sad to reach the end of a game but with with this one I couldn't wait to get to the end. When I started I was happy with the graphics; really clear and well done but it all went downhill from there. There is too much storytelling and not enough gameplay for my liking. The mini games weren't much fun, the hardest part was working out what you actually had to do. The descriptions were hopeless. I found myself using the hint button over and over just to get to the end which is a bummer because like I said it LOOKED awesome.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from unlogical story and just not fun The game was not fun for me at all. It looked really bad, especially the characters and little movie bits. The characters were not believable and strange. The story was really not logical. I can usually take a leap for the suspense of disbelief, but it was so bad I could not even do that... The only thing I was glad of was that I only downloaded the demo and had not bought the actual game.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tedious. Based on the demo: To me, the gameplay in this demo was tedious. The activities engaged in thus far haven't been particularly interesting (to me), & the only time they've proved challenging is when they've tended toward the unintuitive. The only challenge in the mini-games presented thus far has been in figuring out either (a) what exactly you're supposed to do, or (b) the order in which you're supposed to do it. HO scenes have mainly revolved around moving things to find other things, though there's one of the "find & replace" variety that was a bit more fun. The graphics are about average; the storyline (save the world) suffers, in my opinion, from a lack of interesting characters to support it. The latter is something I think is a weak point for this dev, which is unfortunate, because interesting characters can be a rehashed storyline's saving grace. All said, even the "hook" presented at the end of this demo doesn't provide reason enough for me to want to play further, & nothing I've seen so far makes me think that, were I to play it through, I'd ever want to go back & replay it. As always, though, I recommend doing the demo, & seeing what YOU think. ;) Happy gaming, all. :)
