Myths of the World: Fire of Olympus Collector's Edition
Eipix Entertainment has come up with a new release from the Myths of the World series based on an old myth we all know. Myths of the World: Fire of Olympus Collector's Edition is a remake of a story about fire and the wrath of gods that can hurt you just as badly.
Playing as Lysandra, Prometheus daughter, you are now to not just survive in the world of mortals, but also to regain your powers and rescue your father before his spirit is crushed by the punishment he has received.
The words 'fire' and 'Olympus' have probably given it away that it is going to be a story of Prometheus and his generous gift to humans, fire. But this part is history now and we are dealing with the consequences of that act. It seems that Zeus is pretty pissed off by this decision and looks for ways to punish Prometheus as harshly as he can.
He basically takes Prometheus and his daughter that you play as to court. The trial leaves you two guilty and the punishment for your father is to be chained to a rock at the end of the world. You as the goddess (that can be tried and convicted - weird definition of a god if you ask me) of Eternal (not literally eternal if it can be taken away) Frost (in Greece?) get to stripped of your powers and turned into a mortal and sent to Earth.
Playing as Lysandra, Prometheus daughter, you are now to not just survive in the world of mortals, but also to regain your powers and rescue your father before his spirit is crushed by the punishment he has received. There is also a bonus chapter where you are helping out your old buddies.
As you make your way through the world of mortals (being one of them now!) you get to choose the difficulty mode you will play it in - Mortal, Hero, Demigod, or Olympian. The hints and skips are adjustable to your liking, too (10-120 seconds and 10-400 seconds accordingly)!
You get a map and a strategy guide to make your way through the game. You don't have a helper here but you get to use an orb that freezes things for you. 38 collectible signs will keep the game challenging and expand (or refresh) your knowledge of the Greek mythology. There are 12 achievements (some are multi-step) and a whole lot of media extras (music, concept art, videos, a souvenir room etc...) to enjoy after the game. Some of the hidden object scenes and puzzles are available for replay. The only thing is that most of the puzzles are super easy and the hidden object scenes department does not offer much innovation to the genre.
Myths of the World: Fire of Olympus Collector's Edition is a neat game with a classic story. Great for younger players!
