    One hell of a ending with this game. It opens the way up for a sequal that is currently in the making. You find that many of the stories are all linked in one way or another and learn more about the spiritual world. Another great game from Wadjet Eye Games.

    Weak intrigue is a traditional soft spot of the Blackwell adventure games. The investigation is predictable, and all of our burning questions are answered in such a dull, ridiculous manner that all build up flies out the window.

    A textbook example of a 2D point'n'click adventure game. Probably just a handful of players will decide to give it a chance but they will be rewarded with a good story served with 'early SCUMM' visuals. [January 2012, p.73]

    Blackwell Deception proves that adventure gaming is far from giving up the ghost. [Christmas 2011, p.70]
