The game provides its players with top-notch picture quality and a feast for the senses that the mobile platform has never had before. In the game, the world is shrouded by dark mist, where light is dim and mysterious. People there become lunatic, and nobody knows the secrets behind that. Players can play multiple characters to experience the strong storyline and reveal various hidden areas of the map. Along the way, they will fight unbelievable enemies, confront epic bosses, and embrace overwhelming death and truth. All the while, they'll be engrossed by a magnificent soundtrack performed by a world-class orchestra. Expand

    Overall, Pascal’s Wager feels great to play despite its quirks. The combat is great and more than makes up for the graphical flaws and dubious voice acting, the character swapping mechanic is new and interesting, and it is delightfully dark. Despite its problems, I can’t wait to spend more time with it, and very much look forward to where it’s taken in the future. It has without a doubt exceeded my expectations and, with a little help, could readily meet my hopes. All it would take is a bit of polish, a few fixes, and a lot of editing.

    Pascal's Wager is a real soulslike game, challenging and compelling, set in a disturbing, cursed world full of hideous creatures to fight with.

    Pascal's Wager has ticked every box to draw in a gamer who enjoys realism, anticipation, and intrigue centered around combat that offers challenge. With a few tweaks, I have no doubt this game could go down in history as one of the best souls-like games to be released on a mobile phone, paving the way for many more titles similar to its level of entertainment.

    A deeply challenging iOS Souls-like that begs to be played with a controller, Pascal’s Wager indicates a true maturing of gaming on Apple’s platform.

    Pascal's Wager doesn't quite match the impressive standards of its inspiration, but Dark Souls fans should check it out.

    Though it's a very difficult expansion, Tides of Oblivion is a great side story for Pascal's Wager.

    While it’s undoubtedly accomplished and has console-grade production values, it’s never as feverishly gripping as its inspiration. Its viewpoint feels too narrow, and it has a nasty habit of letting the controller go unresponsive at the worst possible moments. It also only shows Xbox button prompts even with a DualShock connected.

    Um excelente jogo para dispositivos mobile, aliás um dos melhores jogos ja feito para esta plataforma. Uma ótima história, uma direção de arteUm excelente jogo para dispositivos mobile, aliás um dos melhores jogos ja feito para esta plataforma. Uma ótima história, uma direção de arte incrível e uma trilha sonora impecável, além de conseguir ser o melhor jogo do estilo "bloodborne" para a plataforma. Só não dou nota 10 devido a alguns bugs e em alguns momentos a inteligência dis NPCs ser hilária. Expand

    Really great soulslike game, that can give you 20-30 hours of amazing gameplay, good PS3 level graphics, interesting and original plot andReally great soulslike game, that can give you 20-30 hours of amazing gameplay, good PS3 level graphics, interesting and original plot and brilliant music. I didn't expect anything from Pascal's Wager, but not it is one of the best 2020 games for me. Only some very difficult bosses and strange voices of some characters are disadvantages of the project.

    this game became real surprise for me from that moment when i first saw it and play for a while. this was my first experience when completethis game became real surprise for me from that moment when i first saw it and play for a while. this was my first experience when complete full game on mobile device, and the main reason because game have pc/console quality (may be it just in my opinion but anyway). today every mobile game just time killer but not "PASCAL'S WAGER". pascal's wager haven't any time skip for real money any advertisement or another garbage from f2p mobile, you bought game once and achieve true console experience also if you connect your game-pad to your phone. but lets talk about game itself it classic souls like game with all this mechanics what every souls like fun's love. i mean secret area with some loot, interest lore of dying world, enemies in ambush and a lot of hard bosses. the final boss was really hard for me =D he made me connect gamepad and farm for a while and after that i was able to win (but i think you probably can win this boss fight without gamepad). but lets talk about every aspect of game little closer and first what i wanna say u cant change your Armour or weapons but have ability to use different character with different weapons and play style also can equip different jewelry and upgrade it to improve your stats. you have ability to visit interest and kinda pretty looks locations (bases on how a mobile game can afford) with different kind of enemies. what really enjoyed me that secret areas on every location it was kinda fun while i saw a locked path and have no idea how to achieve that. so in conclusion if you ever wanted to play soul like right in your smartphone pascals wager will be excellent choice.

Having paid once, you will receive a full-fledged gaming experience from the project in the spirit of souls-like.

    However, the following should be considered:
    1) wooden voice acting
    2) the appearance of the characters is openly copied from other games
    3) the requirement of an Internet connection every time you enter the game
