Role Playing Games have emerged as one of the top-most selling titles in the gaming industry for a while now. These games provide the player with an opportunity to put himself/herself in the shoes of the main character in the game, and switch to a whole new imaginary (read ‘virtual’) world to have a first hand experience of the challenges that comes in front of that particular character. Needless to say, with an ample supply of such games in the market, sometimes, they tend to get a bit more on the boring, and repeating side. However, that should not be the problem with Magic Encyclopedia First Story 1.1. The game, ever since it was released a few years back, has been able to bag some pretty brave feedback both from experts, as well as from fan-boys of the RPG genre.
Upon being launched, Magic Encyclopedia First Story 1.1, opens with pretty neat and colorful interface, with all the important options located visibly towards the top of the screen. The graphics quality is a pretty impressive, especially if you compare it with similar games floating around in the market. The main character in the game is called Catherine- and you need to put yourself into her shoes and proceed on to face the various challenges that comes in front of you. The plot goes like this- Catherine, i.e you, are just done with your exams at the Academy for Magic. And just when you are all set to kick start a new chapter in your life, unexpected turn of events starts unfurling themselves. You get an urgent message sent via a paper bird, and as soon as you read the message, you instantly find yourself transported to a weird jungle. The real game starts from there- you need to start exploring your surroundings, take whatever clues you can manage to get your hands on, and proceed on. The objective is simple - you need to stop the awakening of a monstrous dragon by all means.
All in all, the game has the potential to live up to the expectations of all RPG fans, and hence is rewarded with a score of three and a half rating points.
