Thank you Scarlet City Studios for sending us a review code for this game!

Episode 3 is the season finale for The Aetherlight Chronicles. Here are links to our reviews for episodes one and two for reference. In this episode, the Snowmoors are melting and it has to be stopped. Fortunately, the intelligent Jefferson is already formulating different theories as to why it’s happening.

Along with the new character based off of Joseph, there are several new enemies introduced and they are much tougher. Thankfully the level cap is raised and you’ll need the extra health and power to defeat them and the new bosses. One of the battles you’re meant to lose and you’ll find yourself imprisoned with Jefferson.


Strong Points: Great retelling of Biblical stories; safe game for children to play online
Weak Points: Graphical glitches; not many players online
Moral Warnings: Battles against mechanical enemies

Do you know somebody that is annoyingly intelligent and talks down to everyone else? That’s how Jefferson is and it’s no wonder that you find him trapped in a pit presumably from his siblings that had enough of him.

The battles remain the same with a spinning arrow that determines if your weapon of choice will hit, do a super attack, or miss its target. Since all of the enemies are automatons there is no blood or gore to worry about.

Crafting is still essential to complete quests and for modifying your weapons to do more damage. Some nice modifications let you add fire, water, lightning, and oil attacks to your weapons. Fire is strong against the ice mountain automatons. Be warned that as you upgrade the attack power of some weapons, the ability to miss increases along with it.

Score Breakdown:
Higher is better
(10/10 is perfect)

Game Score - 84%
Gameplay - 17/20
Graphics - 8/10
Sound - 8/10
Stability - 4/5
Controls - 5/5

Morality Score - 93%
Violence - 6.5/10
Language - 10/10
Sexual Content - 10/10
Occult/Supernatural - 10/10
Cultural/Moral/Ethical - 10/10

As expected, the voice acting is still well done with the existing and new characters. I like how you can continue to play the game and complete optional quests after the main story is finished.

Most of the time I fought alone, but occasionally I would have the help of an online player. I like how the final boss battle had two characters fighting beside me. I wish the boss would attack them too, but I was always the primary target. There seems to be a handful of players online at any given time, but there is plenty of room for some more. I like how Scarlet City has added the family pass that sells for $19.99 and lets up to five players connect simultaneously.

Overall, The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance is a fun and family friendly series that teaches Biblical stories in a new and exciting way. I hope that more people check it out since there is a way to try it online for free. Check out their website for more details. I look forward to the next season and more offerings from Scarlet City Studios!

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
