The Sacred Rings

Game Over Online
10 August 2008
  • Excerpt: What a disaster. The Sacred Rings is the sequel to 2004’s Aura: Fate of the Ages . Aura was a decent enough Myst -style adventure game. It had a few moments, but it wasn’t exactly novel or memorable.

C.O.P. The Recruit

  • Conclusion: Playing C.O.P. The Recruit one can’t help wondering what could have been. The strong graphics remain unsupported by the rest of the game, making it feel as if they are the shell of a powerful engine with nothing inside.

The realm of game design, in particular, allows for a unique perspective in a world of fantasy.

  • Excerpt: The Sacred Rings is a direct sequel to the 2004 graphic adventure Aura: Fate of the Ages. Although a direct sequel, the game does work reasonably well as a standalone title. The prologue offers a summary of the events in Fate of the Ages, which I felt brought me up to speed just fine.

HonestGamers
24 May 2007
  • Excerpt: There's nothing like a good adventure game. Being thrown into a mystery can be thrilling.
