Mark, this is an exceptionally written review - nice work.

Love the headline & tagline - keep up the great job.

Think I'll pick this up, shame about the combat issues but it still sounds like something I would enjoy.

It sucks that the combat is so dreadful, as this game actually sounds quite promising. I can forgive shite graphics if I just pretend I'm playing an original Xbox game. I'll probably pick this up, but only when it's on sale.

Appreciate the review. Been anticipating this game.

The game could get a 0/5, I'm still supporting it just for the Lovecraft lore.

This is probably the most mediocre review of a game I've ever read, coming from a person who enjoys historical settings or periods set in noir type games. But, this is only my opinion.

Appreciate the review! Sounds like a perfect candidate for gamepass! Hopefully we'll see it on there down the line!toast

I was on the fence with this one, the combat may be the deciding factor for me.

'Squid' is plural :P

Oh, apparently 'squids' is also acceptable so I'll go away.
Play nice!

Oh phew, decent review. I just preordered this from Best Buy on Monday (roped in with a free $10 gift card) and was crossing my fingers that it wouldn't turn out to be some Agony-level disappointment that I wasted money on.

Great review, at least I didn't preorder it or anything....frustrating to see some of the issues with it, I'll probably wait for it to come down to $15/$20.

About as acceptable as legos.

How does this compare to Call of Cthulu? The premise of this game sounds very similar just with a bigger budget

It does investigations much better. The combat is just so bad, but I think if you like the detective part, this is the better one for sure.
