Mages of Mystralia 

 

Like the Apostle Paul I rejoice in the Lord, and again I say rejoice. My heart is thankful Borealys Games sent Family Friendly Gaming a digital download code for Mages of Mystralia on the Playstation 4. This game can also be found on the PC, and Xbox One. I could find no information on a physical copy version of Mages of Mystralia. Which is a shame since this downloadable only magic based video game is a thirteen gig download. You read that right. I almost choked when I saw the size of this game.

As you may have surmised from the name of this game, Mages of Mystralia is all about mages. They are oppressed, and treated unfairly. All I could think of was the radical far left attempts to redefine history and make witches and warlocks into the good guys, and try to redefine Christians as the bad guys. It turned my stomach and offended me on multiple levels.

This young lady (more radical far left extremism I guess) telepathically talks to her spell book. She goes on a quest to help the other mages because she has magical powers and the ruling class do not know her yet. Sneaky, under handed, and unethical mages huh? And they wonder why they are not trusted in the real world. That and the fact that they worship Satan might have something to do with it.

Mages of Mystralia feels like a Zelda game in many ways. We fight enemies, solve puzzles, and then kill a boss character. After the boss is beaten our health and mana (for the dark magical arts) is increased. We can also find four purple orbs and use them to increase health of mana. There is plenty of cartoon violence as we destroy many of the same looking creatures.

Along the way our character will find runes. These can enhance and change the magical spells in Mages of Mystralia. They are almost always needed to solve certain puzzles in Mages of Mystralia. The music is nice to listen to in Mages of Mystralia. There is no real voice acting. There are some noises that characters make. I guess that Zelda cloning went deep huh?

Mages of Mystralia is a bit on the short side, especially if you figure out where to go and how to do it quickly. There are plenty of side quests that can be ignored. I passed by most of them since I was working on the main story. The combat gets boring in my opinion. Characters will insult one another in Mages of Mystralia too. Maybe that was an attempt at humor. It is possible to get stuck in this game if you forget all of the spells, or can not figure out how to solve something.
