    Eleusis Nocturnal Works fails to impose the gameplay structure, due to excessive simplicity of the puzzles, annoying backtracking and bad exploration mechanics.

    Eleusis is an atmospheric, but mechanically very superficial adventure.

    Eleusis starts off promisingly enough, but well-appointed graphics can’t make up for the lackluster story and generally poor gameplay.

    Eleusis aka Backtracking The Game. At first it looks very awesome and atmospheric game, atmospheric it is indeed. Then you find out that youEleusis aka Backtracking The Game. At first it looks very awesome and atmospheric game, atmospheric it is indeed. Then you find out that you have no idea what you're supposed to do. You have to jump around like an idiot and hope that you have found every item. If not, go jumping back. Compared to Amnesia, this game is not very player friendly. I lost my interest to it completely when I noticed, that you can't save the game. You have to play same parts again and again or you must have balls to solve puzzles and get new checkpoint. In addition when you get stuck in every tree and slope, it will ruin your day easily. Full Review »

    pretty good game imo, i personally enjoyed it more than some of the other more talked about 'survival horrors' out right now, it is apretty good game imo, i personally enjoyed it more than some of the other more talked about 'survival horrors' out right now, it is a relatively short game but has a decent story and gameplay, however if you decide to get this game get the original and not the latest 1.2 update that added wolves to the game, all that really did is made a good game frustrating.

    not so bad, especially for an indie game... yeah, the game is short, there are some visual bugs, sometimes it is hard to solve some puzzlenot so bad, especially for an indie game... yeah, the game is short, there are some visual bugs, sometimes it is hard to solve some puzzle (without solution), but it is fresh idea - using fps engine to make adventure game, it has great atmosphere - most of time keeps you in tense and it had rather nice graphics, story is also not so bad and most puzzles are logical :) Full Review »
