    A Plague Tale: Innocence is all about surviving in an odious and decadent medieval Aquitaine, using your wits. The gorgeous art design and taut, realistic writing make for a heart-wrenching juxtaposition to its rat-infested underbelly and a journey that you'll not soon forget.

    A Plague Tale: Innocence is a superb stealth adventure with excellent gameplay, gorgeous presentation, and a fantastic story that shows how the worst of what the world can throw at humanity can bring out the worst of it.

    We’ve got another outstanding adventure game. It’s not without technical flaws, but delivers a pleasant impression. Perhaps the next game of the studio will become a real gem.

    The scene of crossing a battlefield, with hundreds of lifeless bodies piled over each other, only to see a swarm of rats bursting out of a horse’s bloated corpse is just one of multiple sights that A Plague Tale: Innocence inevitably etches into your mind. Although its stealth and puzzle mechanics aren’t exactly fresh, having what’s, quite possibly, the most powerful representation of the Black Death in the medium, even if stylized, is reason enough to see Amicia and Hugo’s journey to its end.

    A Plague Tale: Innocence features excellent narrative and atmosphere, but the gameplay is a little bit dull.

    At no point did I truly dislike Plague Tale. Quite the contrary. It almost never fails to give you something new to think about or look at, even if you tend to be doing the same three or four things while doing so. The art and environment design is on par with or exceeds some of 2019’s biggest budget titles, and while its core gameplay wears thin by the end, Plague Tale never seems to run out of unique scenarios to throw you into.

    A Plague Tale: Innocence is a stunningly beautiful, and finely-crafted… ok. It's an ok stealth/action-adventure, with ok characters and drama, and oceans of rats that add an ok survival horror vibe to it. Certainly a fun title, but not exactly a big recommendation.

    That time when you launch the game just because and got stunned by its quality.
    Only 1 flaw for me is gameplay, its feel outdated like x360 times.

    It is 2020 and game doesn't support ultrawide, developers really need to put effort as ultrawides are getting more and more popular.
