Tales from the Dragon Mountain: The Strix (PC)

  • Excerpt: A woman has been having dreams about her deceased grandmother's estate being engulfed in flames. To put this matter to rest, she took a train to investigate her grandmother’s house. Upon arriving at the estate, she discovers that her grandmother was killed by an evil demon. Apparently her grandmother spent her life keeping the evil forces at bay in her neck of the woods.
  • Pros: I like the idea of a built in hint system, but it’s only good for locating items.
  • Cons: One of our reviewers could not get this game to run on his Mac. I was able to run the PC version, but it had its share of glitches too.

Review: Tales From the Dragon Mountain: The Strix (PC)

Diehard GameFAN

  • Summary: Tales From the Dragon Mountain: The Strix isn’t a bad game; it’s just a mediocre one. Although the game has Cateia’s usual style and beautiful background visuals, it’s also extremely short, has some terrible voice acting, and some extremely generic and overdone puzzles. There isn’t much of a story to talk about as the game isn’t only two hours long, but the soundtrack is truly worth listening to.

  • Summary: Probably okay if you are going to be watching over a child’s shoulder and helping them play, but not a game to pick up for some fun to pass the time.

  • Conclusion: Overall, Tales from the Dragon Mountain: The Strix took me just a few hours to finish and far less time to forget. The lack of story and thought-provoking puzzles won’t turn seasoned gamers’ heads, but the vast array of helpful hints and soothing graphics may appeal to casual gamers and adventurers looking for a lite time-filler on a lazy afternoon. Take your time and enjoy the scenery, however, because really it’s all downhill from there.

Game Debate

  • Excerpt: Let me start by saying that this is not my kind of game.  I never played this type of game ( Adventure, hidden objective, Mystery ) before, so you can expect a review from a player that doesn’t know anything about other games out there with the same genre and so my opinion is based on this game only and I had absolutely no stakes set.
  • Pros: Clean Visuals, Sound Effects, Price
  • Cons: Short, No Real Challenge, Meh Story
