    Shoots for scares, but elicits yawns.

    Saibot offers an interesting first person adventure here, but Doorways is very short. The story of each psycho killer is dissolved and the puzzles are no problem. But above all, despite a fairly "nice" sordid atmosphere, we cannot say that we have been frightened while playing.

    It doesn’t rock and it doesn’t shock. The biggest scare of Doorways is imagining that there will be more episodes like this one.

It starts a bit weak but then you play and still play and it become really... really great, you wouldn't probably stop just for seeing the scenaries, but you will anyway that is how you feel a game in the same atmosphere it has. I don't know why, but this game is one of my favorites, and the best thing I would mention is how well done are the scenaries, also those amazing cinematics and the game itself has life when you encounter fear, I kinda feel great & enjoyed to be scared on this game. I think I prefer chapter 2, I'm not so sure because I'll have to finish them again to remember the parts of each one. I'm waiting for Chapter 3, and I'm really waiting it... this game is big and scary, it doesn't abuse of jumpscares I think, and it's scary in a manner of admiration and... replayability. That's pretty much it, love it, so I will give it a 9.5/10. Doorways Full Review »

    CHAPTERS 1 & 2

    The main protagonist is a cop/detective who is tasked to find 4 criminals, all while trying to avoid being killed by various traps, ghosts, and animated statues. The setting is creepy, dark, and beautifully done. Levels vary from being outside with walls of spikes all around you to the interior of old, dark castles.

    The game tries to scare you, but doesn’t do a great job doing so, but there are some pretty scary moments, like being chased by a huge statue when you can only see 5 feet in front of you, or when you’re running through the darkness hoping your torch doesn’t die out leaving you vulnerable to the ghosts that dwell there. The fear from this game comes more from psychological things instead of physical objects or beings, like seeing a man being tortured with a device intended to rip the flesh from your bones. All that and the grainy visual effects still are not enough to make this game reach the level of horror they were probably attempting to achieve.

    There are notes and small statues you can search around for, while the statues unlock achievements, the notes are basically the only story there is in this game, and it could have been done better.

    Pros:
    Beautiful environments.
    Some fun moments.
    Voicing by Sam A. Mowry.

    Cons:
    Controls are bad.
    Very short (60-90 minutes).
    Boring for most of the game.
    Tries to be scary, but fails most of the time.

    Score: 5/10

It got atmospheric and scary music, a good gameplay and it scares you to the bones. Especially the second chapter is so well made that you have to play it. I've already gone through the first two chapters so many times and I really look forward to the release of the next chapters.The start was great and I know the game will become even better.
