Summary

Masks of Mists is a first-person adventure game whereby you go around solving puzzles and fighting creatures as you learn new spells and find weapons. Sounds alright but it’s so safe and lonely it’s a game that is hard to recommend, you start off with no direction, no help on what to do or why you should be doing it. Eventually, you fumble into a sense of adventure and a very broad idea on a mission. Then the game just descends into a basic maze and puzzle scenarios with no payoff but opening a door to another puzzle, monsters will be sprinkled in but the combat is spammy and all about just moving in circles around said monster to avoid getting hit. Overall I found the game to be very plain, slow-paced, and ultimately not that fun.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
