    An engaging metaphysical thriller that oozes charm and gore, Cognition is a series with such a breathtaking storyline that makes us want to beg for a TV mini series.

    Cognition is a little like curling up with a good scary book on a dark and stormy night. It has some annoying flaws and the story isn’t for everyone, but for those looking for a morose and gloomy game, Cognition may be right up your alley.

    Cognition Episode 1 ($3.99, iPad) is a deluxe point and click adventure that isn’t perfect, but does deliver an engaging overall experience that you will want to keep diving into.

    If it weren't for the controls, Cognition: Episode One would be a must-buy. But it's worth playing all the same.

    Despite its problems, Cognition succeeds at immersing you in its emotionally charged, supernatural mystery. If you are fond of mysteries and adventures, you won’t regret the time that you spend with the first episode of this promising series. While it shares lots of flaws with its brethren of the genre, this point-and-click adventure game has enough going for it with its story and cognition mechanics to make it worth playing.

    Cognition Episode 1 is an otherwise dark and engaging adventure game that's left feeling crippled thanks to a poorly optimized adaption.

    Serious adventure fans will be able to look beyond Cognition's warts to appreciate the story and puzzle challenges, but it's bound to be a love-hate relationship.
