    If you like horror, the macabre or the notion of taking a personal voyage through Dante’s Inferno with a touch of Gigeresque visuals… this may be up your alley (or down your abyssal chasm).

    If you are predisposed toward the infernal if you enjoy the gory and the journey this game might be for you. If you are looking for solid gameplay and perpetual darkness is an issue, then you will see more devils than this vast hell can hold.

    Agony is a survival horror adventure game with disturbing and grotesque visuals that sadly doesn´t match the high expectations we had on it. Most of the game mechanics are too frustrating, clunky and repetitive, but it also gives us freedom of exploration and shows a good level design. A game for the true hardcore fans of horror games.

    A truly inspired and horrific depiction of Hell, attempting to prop up a mechanically nonexistent survival/horror early prototype for a game. Even the toughest of pentacle carving black metal fans will have a hard time pretending that they actually enjoyed and ‘got’ Agony.

    Undercooked in all the key places, Agony is just a 10 hour trip through increasingly edgy content that isn't actually fun to play.

    Agony lives up to its name in the most dreadful way possible. The gory shock tactics try too hard to impress, and are ultimately a moot point given just how effective the game’s brokenness is at dispelling any palpable fear or awe I might have had and replacing it with aggravation.

    If Hell does exist, then it's surely the one depicted in Agony, because one can get used to pain and suffering, but these can't compete with utter and complete boredom. Madmind Studios' rushed, controversial cash-grab, is nothing more than one of the contenders for the worst release of 2018, and one of the worst survival horror games ever, full stop.

It is an action story with the unique atmosphere and some stealth-elements. But this atmosphere is perfect! Is is a real creepy hell without cloying stereotypes about horned demons and beauty succubes. This game is a trip to crazy Gehenna with a lot of mythology. 10/10 Expand

    Closest thing to a Hell simulator you'll ever see-- and not in a good way.
    Great idea and setting are completely ruined by monotonous, boring, gameplay. You can barely see 20 feet ahead of yourself, the environments all look the same, the level design is atrocious, and there is basically no story. SKIP THIS ONE.

Sadly this game does anything but deliver an " Agonizing " gaming experience. you are going to get a rather long campaign of horrendously low FPS, screen tearing, un-intuitive controls, poor story, and constantly corrupting save files. Ultimately this game was just a cash grab that was leaning on the shock horror theme that the game is centered around. Its all flash and no substance, and they don't even capture the "flash" very well. Just ignore this title and spread the word that this is just the horror game equivalent of No Man's Sky. Expand
