Diehard GameFAN: Relics: Dark Hours Review

DHGF: Relics: Dark Hours is not only meant to be a tribute to the old full motion video games of the 1990s, but also the first in a series of point and click adventure games. Unfortunately for it, it’s not a very good game meaning the first game will probably also be the last. The game suffers from gameplay issues such as disappearing hot spots and others that are hard to find, which will leave all but the most ardent adventure gamer frustrated. Throw in the fact that the game is also as cheesy (if not moreso) than the early FMV games it is trying to emulate, and you have a product that only a small percentage of gamers will have fun live. I like FMV, kitsch and adventure games, so I found the game fun at times, but I also found it to be a game I can’t really recommend to anyone. Relics is not a terrible game by any means – it’s just a sub-par one with a nice soundtrack.
