    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.

    There were some bugs, but the material was fresh.
    I hope there are more sex erotic horror games like this.
    I look forward to the next series.

    This is the sort of game a church reverend would make a misbehaving child play.
    I don't normally play anything outside of action types of games, but this one is great. I know its supposed to be on the horror side, but the graphical depiction of a romanticized Hell is just fantastic here. Highly recommend.
    Tip: play the unrated version, and IDK about the bugs, seemed to be fixed, at least in my experience.

    All shock, and no substance. The take on hell is amazing, but the underlying gameplay is frustrating.

    Poor desing. Terrible gameplay, just stupid horror imagery flooding the screen. Just disgusting and stupid game for stupid "edgy" people.

    A disappointment on all levels, and the developers squabbled their chances to make a unique game by submitting to censorship. A shameful display.
