Eternal Darkness is an engrossing adventure map in which players get to set foot in a chaotic game world in which there’s danger at every turn. A lot of adventure maps tend to have the plot as their strongest suit but that doesn’t seem to be the case this time around because Eternal Darkness doesn’t really put that much thought into the story. However, the map more than makes up for it with its incredibly addicting gameplay that’ll probably keep players coming back for more, even after they’ve played through the map. Basically, if you don’t really prioritize the story that much and would much rather trade it for higher quality gameplay, this map is for you.
In Eternal Darkness, you experience a nightmare about the Princess being sacrificed by the Demon Lord and are suddenly forced to wake up by a fairy who tells you that everything you saw in your nightmare will become true if you don’t end up stopping. After hearing the fairy’s words, you set out on an epic adventure to prevent the Demon Lord from making the sacrifice. As you can see, there’s not really all that much depth to the plot but, all things considered, it seems to flow quite smoothly as the map progresses further.
Onto the gameplay itself, Eternal Darkness is absolutely packed with things to do. There’s a pretty massive game world to explore, eight different dungeons to fight through, tons of mobs to slay, challenging puzzles to complete, and a whole bunch of other high-quality gameplay features for players to enjoy. The Eternal Darkness lasts for around three hours depending on how skilled the player actually is but, even after you’ve played through it once, you’ll probably want to go through it again because of how addicting gameplay it is and this is something that can’t really be said for most adventure maps.
