Artifex Mundi has created a worthwhile experience with Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride that any player can appreciate. The Forsaken Bride utilizes new gameplay mechanics and derives off the path of the usual hidden object game-type.
Adventure fans shouldn't pass up the chance of another easy completion even if it involves two playthroughs instead of one. For those who don't normally play this type of game, Grim Legends, or any Artifex Mundi game for that matter, continues to be a great starting point for their entry into the genre.
The overall low difficulty of the puzzles, the short game time, and the stuttering cutscenes may be a huge turn off for many. However, if they give Grim Legends a try, they will find a game that visually is very enjoyable. I found problem solving in the game to be worthwhile and incredibly fulfilling.
The palatable fantasy-based story, gorgeous hand-painted still locations and good balance of fun, albeit easy, puzzle types may not be everybody’s cup of tea but those willing to give it a taste may find themselves being pleasantly surprised.
