  1. 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.
  2. The only thing that holds Evidence: The Last Ritual back is its excessive difficulty; otherwise, The Adventure Company has yet again crafted an amazingly vivid game that breaks expectations of what an adventure game can do.
  3. 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.
  4. Although insanely difficult at times, Evidence is a compelling take on the tracking of a serial killer. You'll need a lot of patience to see it through to the end, though.
  5. The main flaw in Evidence is not in its puzzles but in its storytelling. Evidence makes the mistake of many narratives: the only interesting character is the villain.
  6. Evidence is an experimental serial-killer tale that will raise goose bumps and tempers.

    For more literate-minded gamers who want a different sort of experience, this is a distinct and interesting attempt to broaden the adventure game genre.
  8. 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. Full Review »

    I'm not a gamer at all, but when I played this game for the first time, I was hooked. Its soo addicting and mind bending.
