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

    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 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.

    Pascal’s Wager brings a little bit of everything to the table. You’ll be faced with challenge after challenge, but overcoming those challenges never ceases to be satisfying. The game emphasizes tight combat and quick responses from the player to survive and it works well on a mobile device. Still, the best experience requires the use of a controller, but it’s tough to look past all the great elements of gameplay that this title presents. Those wanting to jump in without the confines of the mobile device can look forward to the PC and console release in the future.

    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.

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

    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.

    Неожиданно хорошо для мобильной игры. Хотя и есть некоторые недочёты, которые своевременно исправляют - игру поддерживает разработчик. В целомНеожиданно хорошо для мобильной игры.

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

    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.
