I've always held judgement on this game as I found
the music and graphics to be AMAZING, but for some
reason the game play just didn't grab me. I have played
all of the way through (well nearly!), but it just
didn't seem to capture my imagination. It may also be
down to the fact that I'm crap at playing games ;-)
Rogers has played this game to the ending and found the
following for us all to devour...
JESUS! What an ugly
And now it's BALD!!!
Ahhhh ... that's better
:-) The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Tut-tut, Matthew. We can't believe you cheated! ;)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
After defeating the UGLY Deveron (see about first two
screen shots) the game loads the final sequence, which
is a superbly drawn picture of a princess accompanied by
a final message that reads, 'You have defeated
Deveron and his evil legions. Well done hero. Your final
score. I bid thee farewell. Till next we meet.'
I am actually pretty impressed with this ending, which
did appear on our original game ending web site
(previously called 'END OF THE LINE') a few years back.
I do remember giving it a good review then and nothing
has changed since - it still looks cool. There isn't
much to it, but it certainly gives you the feeling of
satisfaction and a good job done - not to mention some
cool music and graphics. I like it; I like it a lot :-)
7/10 from me.
- Matthew: This game is legendary - pure class from beginning
to end; it's a shame no effort was spent on the end. I'm
ashamed to say I cheated this time in order to get you
the ending quickly, but I can say I've done it many
times without cheating and it's a joy - but it takes a
while. Very disappointing for a game whose attention to
detail throughout is exceptional. 5/10.
FINAL SAY: You're going to have to judge this
one for yourself...
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FROM CHRIS ADDERLEY:
"The issue with the
well-drawn princess is that she also appeared right at
the beginning of the game, before the first level,
accompanied by a voice sample "Welcome to Myth". Her
being re-used at the end is understandable, but detracts
from the ending in a "seen it before" way, I suppose."
AH! Right, now I didn't know that. I will leave the G.E.
Rating as it is so that it justifies your comments, but
now that I know this information I would agree with
Matthew's rating. Thanks Chris.
