    Mages of Mystralia, as one of the biggest indie prospects of 2017, presents an amazing adventure that, by an incredible magic crafting system and a gorgeous setting, offers an unforgettable journey, which will everlast with deep attachment.

    Mages of Mystralia is definitely an enjoyable game, maybe one of the most fun games of the year, but undoubtedly it had the prospect of something more grandeur. Perhaps the inevitable sequel will do the trick.

    Mages of Mystralia’s colorful atmosphere and great spell mechanics are more than enough to make up for a slightly muted narrative.

    Mages of Mystralia is for gamers looking for more than hack-and-slash action RPGs. It has a unique magic crafting system, puzzles, and challenges that compel you to play more, unlock more spell customization options, and grow stronger. Designed for the Steam Controller, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, you’ll master your magic and empower your destiny as you save the world of magic users.

    Borealys saw a winning formula, gave it a little glitter, and came up with something that plays well to both young and old audiences without relying on any gimmicks. My only regret is that in playing so much to its narrative strength, it left a lot of environmental world-building and magic-mastering hidden in the background when those well-designed elements deserved so much more than that.

    Clocking in at a modest six hours after an average first playthrough, Mages of Mystralia still leaves much to be explored with the plethora of hidden chests, optional puzzles, and a special mage trial combat event to take part in. Though unfortunately it feels more so for the sake of clearing the way to a 100% completion rating, as opposed to needing these items for the quest. With that said, those first six hours of Mages of Mystralia stir up a lot of the same feelings as the old-school games that inspired it, offering a spirited and endearing romp with a charming mage and her impressively complex magical abilities.

After a few hours of playing it gets slightly boring, because there is no exploration but just puzzle solving in exactly the order which the developers have intended. The game itself is quite short, and replaying is no fun at all. Expand

    Unable to adjust Resolutions (16:9 only) and AA. Sound and music are boring.
    No highlight NPCs who gave you quests and no map area. The puzzles are not easy at the beginning.
