for $ 13.99 only!Hello, my dear friends, who want to play only the best casual games! Today we will review newest Hidden object game, which claims to be included in this list of best games - Surface: Mystery of Another World. As usual, Big Fish Games for now released only Collector's Edition of Surface: Mystery of Another World game, but that's enough to test the game and find out, does it really belongs to the greatest HOG, or it boring and ugly. Let's find out.
They say: it's better to see once than hear a hundred times. Lets check this claim and watch Surface: Mystery of Another World gameplay video.
Game graphics is incredible: there is 100 percent feeling, that you watching Hollywood movie, and not a и or c-movie, no - real blockbuster! Motion captured and face animation are realized just great - sometimes it's impossible to find differences between the designed characters and real people. Music and sounds in Surface: Mystery of Another World are also well, including the part, exclusive for Collector's Edition. But let us talk about Mystery of Another World storyline and gameplay, the most important parts of any game.
Everything in Surface: Mystery of Another World starts with an usual train ride. Your protagonist is a young man who already has a wife and son Bobby. With a Bobby you are heading to the coast, going on your first vacation for a very long time. You wife didn't make it, so you are going without her - let the girls work while the boys will be have fun! But the game wouldn't be called Mystery of Another World, if all you have to do - is just lay on the beach, drink cocktails and swim with your boy.
So, thinking about best vacation ever you travel to Marysville with Bobby and sit into the train, full of other children and their parents, heading to the sunny beaches. You gained vacation voucher for you and your son, so he won't be bored without other kids. And for the first look, everything in Surface: Mystery of Another World started well. Train moved, you relaxed, peacefully watching Bobby playing with other kids. But then problems came to you, and those problems are huge.
Lulled by the swaying of the wagon and the kids playing (in your coupe there was a beautiful young mother with a daughter, perfect couple for you and your son), you fell asleep. And when you has wake up, the situation in the compartment has dramatically changed. You are alone - mother, daughter and, the most important, your own son Bobby are missing, disappeared. Everything in the coupe is flipped and scattered. So it's time to show that you are real dad and to find your son! To do so in Surface: Mystery of Another World, first you must investigate the strange occurrences that are happening in a train and all around it.
Investigating the whereabouts you will find out, that train is gone way off course and stopped in the middle of nowhere. Strange things are going on: people you saw a moment ago, goes missing without a trace, and in water reflections you can see faces and not only faces of some strange persons. Moreover, someone from the reflections are real enough to kidnap people through the water into some place elsewhere, maybe even into Another World (you saw how hand are risen from the bath, filled with water and drag the children into it). So now your son and his new girlfriend are likely there, in mysterious another world too, so it's time for you to go through the reflection below the surface and visit this another world.
Looks like some man in a dark round glasses are living under the surface here in mysterious Another World. He's watching you, and you barely can imagine someone else to kidnap your son. So now it's time to find four-eyes and stop him, before he will do something horrible with Bobby! Soon you will find out, that mystery man in glasses is planning to create an army to gain power in our world, and the situation is such that you are the only one able to stop him and to save your son. You must save Bobby and get him back to surface! But beware: maybe your foe will made you to choose between your son and other survivors. Will you be able to made such choice, or to overwhelm your rival?
As I said before, game graphics is absolutely extraordinary. I saw something almost as good character animation in Hallowed Legends: Templar, but the game itself wasn't so interesting. And even in that game you can clearly see, that characters are only animated. Surface: Mystery of Another World is much better. Surface gameplay is entertaining and not dull, game has wide variety of different puzzles. Collector's edition of Surface: Mystery of Another World includes pretty impressive set of features: some bonus content (chapter + bonus minigames), single screensaver, concept art, wallpapers, bonus videos, soundtracks (only for tracks by Den Derry) and Integrated strategy guide.
Now let's summarize. Surface: Mystery of Another World is a really great game, it will be pleasant revelation for anyone, who likes Hidden Object games. You should try Mystery of Another World at least for its beautiful graphics and characters animation that is a generation ahead other modern hidden object games. Story is interesting and unusual too (hallelujah, no ghosts!). If you don't want to pay too much, take a look on a Standard Edition. Try this game - and you will never forget it! Good luck.
