    This is the only story driven game with great gameplay I have played. Games like last of and uncharted just focus way too much on story and cutscenes then when you get to the gameplay it’s disappointing. I honestly love the puzzles and the different approaches to many enemies.

    Well, turns out this game is a pain gameplay-wise. It's not refreshing, it's borring and repetitive. I wish it would have been shorter.

    Best game reviewer on RUclip. Your channel is the one I go to when trying to decide on what to spend limited time and money on.

    The best looking game I've ever seen, the soundtrack is simply superb, the voice acting is convincing and heartfelt (I played in French), the story just pulls you in, very intriguing and creative fantasy setting, and nice light gameplay mechanics.... simply put, this game is stellar and should not be missed out on by anyone who loves great story driven, linear single player games.

    This game is actually really cool. I held off on buying it for months. Once I finally got it I really enjoyed it.

    I still cant get over this game I usually do not play this type of game but damn it's one of the best stories and gameplay I've played in years and I really am not a fan of stealth at all, I'm a guns blazing type

    I loved it, but I think the rats could have been handled better (if you just watch them, they often move way too unrealistically). Also, the final boss fight, while kind of fun, felt really out of place to me. It's probably good that it's there, but I felt like I'm suddenly playing an older God of War game or something like that. Also, I think the blacksmith's son character was kind of underdeveloped and one-dimensional.

    Ive got 2 chapters left and so far this game has been fantastic.The lighting ,and the sense of medieval atmosphere,especially in the dark parts with candles looks phenomenal on oled tv. The strealth was really refreshing and it reminded me a lot of last of us.I can highly recommend this game to anyone:)

    I wanna play this but I get an 'Ashley in RE4' vibe from the kid. I can't deal with that for a whole game.

    I own almost every Triple A Title out there for the Playstation 4. But this is one game that I dont own.. Shocking to because I'm into games like this and I really loved playing Hellblade. Guess it's time to go out and buy this game. Graphics look amazing and sneaking around enemies and running from hordes of Evil rats. What's there not to like about that... I gotta go out and buy this game today or tomorrow.

    So glad that this game is getting the recognition it deserves. Managed to get it whilst it was on sale on Xbox a few weeks back, but would've definitely paid full price if I knew how good it was going to be. Definitely deserves to be up there in some of the GOTY categories

    I always like your reviews but man, you said that the antialiasing was amazing and at 4k I’m sure it looks good but in my opinion it’s a horrible implementation

    This is the first positive review I have seen of this - I looked forward to it and then didn't buy because I'd the poor reviews. I don't mind the interactive story genre - puzzles you don't need a walk through for, action you don't need 16yr old reflexes for, and no forced multi-player. Will check it out now.

    Great review, just completed the game today and overall I liked the concept. I had a few issues with the wonky targeting at times and the skills or equipment that under performed in certain sections. Definitely worth the time to play if anyone was on the fence.

    Just finished the game. Have to say that It is one of the gorgeous game out there and runs butter smooth on r9 285 2 gb at ultra 900p. Very commendable job from Asobo. What an optimized game and what a story!!!

    This reminds me of The Order 1886. Short and sweet campaign, well put together, good story. I do like the fact that it is only roughly 13 hours in length. I work a lot and drink a lot so I get overwhelmed by games like Odyssey or Borderlands with so much to do. Although I am a huge fan of utilizing the environment and this does not seem to do it, I will still be picking it up tonight regardless.

    The only complaint I have with this game is that most of the times the puzzles are way too easy and you have abundance of resources which normally is not the case with survival games. But the story, voice acting, beautiful vistas and interesting characters over shadowed these minor nuisances. I recommended this game almost to everyone.

    I adored this game, an emotional masterpiece. The last game I played that had any emotional impact was Witcher 3.

    The idea of "replay value" needs to be re-examined. People watch movies and read books that they like multiple times, even though they are completely linear. Art can be experienced multiple times without it changing; whether for experiencing its sheer beauty, or for different interpretations.

    The only DLC that this game contains is 3 different coat of arms robes that Amecia can wear during the game but other that that this game is amazing! And in my opinion it's really good to see a game portray the Black Death in such a creepy and shocking way it is very good and I'm a sucker for Medieval games it's amazing!! And the brother and sister relationship between Amecia and Hugo is quite relatable.

    "The two mains play off each other really well, and as more people are added to the story, including monks, thieves, and masked medieval versions of Revan from KotOR and others..."

    It is sad that these kind of story driven games are becoming rare and rare these days where microtransaction are shoved into our mouth and battleroyal games becoming a real plague. I really enjoyed the game and its awesome story, it forced me to get invested to main characters and worried about them especially Hugo. I hope we gonna have more games like this to play in the future.

    Focus and excellent pacing are probably two of the best factors of this game, and ones I haven't seen discussed that often. Yeah, it's a niche game gameplay-wise and even story-wise at times, but if it's your jam, this game should delight you. Fair review, thanks for the video.
