Luxodetta – A Unique Wii Game
A few days ago, I got to play the recently released « Drawn To Life » from the talented studio, Playpark exclusive. A game with an interesting story line, it put me in a steam cabin with my girlfriend to witness a strange, supernatural event firsthand. The visuals are breathtaking, filled with amazing color and awe-inspiring scenes. If you enjoy adventure games, then you will definitely want to check this one out.
As seen in trailers and concept art, the game is set in a city called Luxodetta. You play as Dan, a young video game designer who gets the opportunity to visit Luxodetta, a city under threat of supernatural beings from another dimension. When your father asks you to come and work at his new game design studio, you hesitate. You have never done anything like it before, and there seems to be so much to learn and grow from this adventure. However, when you finally agree to go on a trip with him, you find yourself trapped under the mountain – and you don’t know how you will get out.
The story is told from two different perspectives, telling the point of view of Dan and his father. It’s clear that this isn’t your typical adventure game as we all are used to. This one mixes adventure with mystery, horror, and even comedy. It’s a whole new experience. This adventure takes you to some fantastic locations that you would have never been able to discover otherwise. The environments are rich with detail, the scenery is beautiful, and there is nothing more that you can ask for in a game.
The action in the game is done in first person view, adding to the realism of the game play. In this perspective you get to control every aspect of the game. You have Dan’s movements, and every single action is controlled with the keyboard. This adds an entirely new level of interactivity. You can explore the surroundings, listen to conversations, use objects, and choose what actions to make. You are literally a part of the action in this game.
If you have played other titles in the first person adventures, such as Jade Empire, then you will know exactly what I am talking about. In fact, the visuals of this game look and sound as well as they did in Jade Empire, providing a truly immersive and exciting gaming experience. The environments are beautifully detailed, and the story is told very fast, so it is easy to follow along with. All in all, the game has many positive points, which really goes to show just why it is one of the best adventure titles for Wii.
The action, puzzles, characters, and overall experience in Luxodetta are well worth the price. Even the Limited Run bundle comes with the game for a discounted price, so it’s well worth the money spent on this one. If you have never played this type of game before, then you should definitely purchase it. You will be happy you did.
