It’s with a sense of nervousness that I return to the blog after a long hiatus. Partly because I haven’t written anything here in a good, long while. But also because I have to pick up with a series where I left on a high note. And now it’s in the hands of another developer.
I wasn’t going to review this game. Then something happened… no, actually, nothing happened. Up until right now when I started writing this, I was unsure whether I was going to review it or not. But then I realized… I don’t speak enough about mediocre HOPA.
I’m back from Madrid and we’re leaping head first into a new series of HOPA from Mariaglorum that really has me drooling for more. Fairy tale-based HOPAs are nothing new, might even call them dime a dozen, but it’s rare that I find one that more or less crafts its own fairy tale.
I wish I could say it was a diamond but there are some serious missteps that keeps this game from being a favorite.
Is it irony or tragedy that what seems to be the last entry in a franchise is also the best?
