It successfully combines horror, action, survival, combat and story in a way that so few games do in this modern age. A Plague Tale: Innocence is also a reminder that the world still needs single-player story-based games, especially those that are as wonderfully beautiful and heartfelt as this one.
A Plague Tale is a narrative adventure whose true protagonists are the rats. It is set in a realistic Middle Age Europe, during the Hundred Year War, and delivers an interesting story, and some well designed puzzles. On the downside, it is short (about 10 hours long) and some mechanics feel repetitive.
A Plague Tale: Innocence doesn’t nail everything, but it still manages to pull off the things it absolutely needed to succeed. For every clunky stealth section or awkward animation, there’s a heartfelt interaction between Amicia and Hugo. It’s a story about the inevitable end of all things and how tragedy makes people long for a time before innocence is stripped away. Amicia didn’t ask to become Hugo’s guardian--that’s just the way life panned out. Much as she would like to shield him from the brutality of their circumstances, it’s not possible if they want to survive. Innocence is akin to fire; neither lasts forever and, eventually, every flame fizzles out. However, if we stick with the people we love, it’ll burn for as long as we need it to.
The developers of A Plague Tale managed to create an emotional story seasoned with stealth elements - not very demanding, as the game is really easy. Nevertheless, the title remains a very compelling experience that I finished overnight - which might be the best review I can give. Also - it's insanely pretty.
A Plague Tale: Innocence deserves respect for daring to be different, funnelling you through a bleak European backdrop that’s seldom seen. Despite some neat ideas, though, the stealth and puzzle mechanics drag, and the story can’t quite make up its mind about what it wants to be. Furthermore, while the presentation is spectacular, the project lacks polish in key areas and overstays its welcome at times.
História fantástica, com personagens muito envolventes.
Gráficos fabulosos que ficam ainda melhores na PS5
Jogabilidade muito boa, com períodos de muita ação e outras de exploração. Também considero muito bom a possibilidade de fazer melhorias aos diferentes equipamentos.
Está guay el juego pero le falta cosas en todo. Historia bien pero le falta personajes, más "problemáticas" situaciones, la jugabilidad también le falta más forma de combatir, ya que se vuelve repetitivo. En general bien pero escasea y no es nada del otro mundo este juego
A terribly boring game that repeats dumb mechanics once and again, with a clumsy, slow control, and a story that, being the best of this game, it isn't special at all, making the whole thing totally not worthy. Furthermore, you constantly feel that all your actions are scripted, so you can only do whatever is expected at any time. There is not more than one way to overcome the situations the game lays out, just one, and the lack of freedom feels really anoying. Comparisons between A Plague Tale Innocence and naughty dog's games do not benefit the first in any way, because make more evident all the strengths it lacks. Finally, dubbing it to French and German is ok, but not dubbing it to Spanish, with far more speakers around the world, seems to be an ilogic decision. One more among many.
SummaryA Plague Tale: Innocence offers an adventure supported by an original scenario, with gameplay that blends action, adventure and stealth phases. Follow our protagonists Amicia and her little brother Hugo, both orphans and on the run from the terrifying Inquisition. Our young heroes will also need to survive against an even greater danger:...
