In The Heart of Desolation, you arrived at a small village in the middle of the Himalayas where you found the terracotta warriors attacking the locals, along with its leader, the Earth Dragon. You soon learnt that there was a myth that the powerfully evil Dragon King was captured in the Golden Heart by the five good dragons and their allies – but now that the Dragon King has escaped and lived in the body of the Earth Dragon; you, as the chosen one, has to help the good dragons and defeat the dragon king once again!
Myths of the World: The Heart of Desolation sure has a very exciting story. The game opened with a terrific cutscene and continued its awesomeness from there. The characters in the game all have distinctive personalities, they are beautifully drawn and featured high quality voice-overs. The game greets us with interesting events at nearly every turn of the corner, continuously keeping us captivated and glued to the screens.
Despite the adventure part of the game being a little too straightforward, the overall quality of the gameplay is beyond impressive. The Heart of Desolation featured some very cool multi-layered hidden object scenes, with a variety of formats to keep things fresh and a Mahjong mode to switch to. The puzzles are even better! The game has some really innovative puzzles that are cleverly designed to fit the storyline and the Orient theme of the game – many of them are satisfyingly challenging, while there are some simpler ones as well.
Anyhow, the biggest selling-factor of The Heart of Desolation is definitely its presentation. The graphics are simply splendid, the cutscenes are utterly epic and all of the locations look absolutely magical on our screens. Each location realistically portrays the Orient settings of the game and we were so absorbed into the game to the point that we really felt that we were floating in the center of the Himalayas. Moreover, the soundtracks are exquisitely composed with soothing melodies.
There is nothing to worry about the Collector’s Edition either, since Myths of the World: The Heart of Desolation has one of the most heavily-loaded bonus-content sections we have ever seen – the complete list can be found below. The bonus chapter offers an entertaining continuation to the main story, it lasted about an hour – brings the total length to a delightful 5-and-a-half-hour.
