  1. Dull combat, countless boring gray rooms and an abandoned story make Cryostasis as appealing as frozen dog droppings. [Aug 2009, p.76]
  2. Snail-paced frozen nonsense. [Apr 2009, p.66]

    You know, I live in Ukraine(country where this game was made), An to my mind Criostatis is the best game of the gaming companies in our country. I know that it requires good computer system but however here are the best monster appearing, cold effects and story giving that I saw. I hope, the next part will be soon! Full Review »

    This game i found to be slow to start but as the game wore on it became addicting. The story line was beautiful and this game had me jumping in my seat at certain times in the game. Overall it was a great game Full Review »

    This game gets a 3/10 for it's storyline only. The game itself looks awful, the water effects are extremely cheesy and bad... and not to mention on top of looking awful it also RUNS AWFUL! This thing would probably lag even with a GTX-285 or something, I mean my god talk about terrible optimization. The gameplay is stiff and boring, I can really only see playing it for the story... which is slow as dripping molasses mind you. On the plus side this minds me of Call of Cthuhlu, so I give it a 3/10 for nostalgia and having an 'alright' storyline. Full Review »
