  1. A truly excellent and innovative adventure game.

    For anyone who loved the first title, this one is an obvious pick-up. For everyone else, if you love puzzles and creepy scenery, pick up both titles, it would be well worth the money.
  3. More or less a good game with some good concepts. Could be done just a little better but in the most part fun, especially if you’re bored with the same-old same-old murder mystery games.
  4. If you happened to be among the first to solve some of the component puzzles for Haunted Apiary or another such ARG, or you simply have the patience, love the feeling of being a hardcore puzzle solver, and on top of that have a pretty strong stomach for disturbing, offensive, and humiliatingly subtle imagery, then the International Committee For The Phoenix Arrest could use your help.
  5. If you enjoy a good horror mystery there’s definitely a lot of meat here to dig your teeth into provided you have the patience for the places that move a bit more slowly, or require a lot more dig. I think I’ll go play something warm and fuzzy now to chase away the chill.
  6. Its "Se7en" -inspired serial killer lunacy is good for a genuine chill or two. It ain't perfect, but it's different and interesting enough to be worth a good look.
  7. Given how much I loathed playing it, I’d like to give it a really low grade. (Is there a Z?) But I can’t in all fairness do that, because this game is exactly what it’s supposed to be. What it does, it does well, and many of you will enjoy it. I didn’t.

    This game is beautifully executed. Something I've learned to do with MetaCritic is ignore their Website reviews, and read the player This game is beautifully executed. Something I've learned to do with MetaCritic is ignore their Website reviews, and read the player reviews - they're usually higher. Evidence is a great game that appeals to intellectuals who like a good puzzle and a good thrill. A friend and I are playing the game together and getting scared out of our wits. It's a good challenge and great gameplay - just be sure you know what to expect before you buy the game. This is NOT a first-person shooter or a sports simulator. This is a mind-bending puzzle ARG.

    Interesting format....kept you going for more. But I would like to think of myself as intelligent and too many of the puzzles/clues were too Interesting format....kept you going for more. But I would like to think of myself as intelligent and too many of the puzzles/clues were too obtuse and you never got there logically. I don't like to HAVE to have help to play a game. Unfortunately there were times when I HAD to go to a walkthrough and found out that I would have NEVER gotten there alone. Not that puzzles were too difficult...just didn't always follow a logical or available path of solving. Expand
