Dec 23, 2022Not a bad story about the "Slavic" Baba Yaga with bad gameplay. I don't support Russia but I have doubts about the developer. During the time when Russia invaded the territory of Ukraine in this game you can hear a song with Russian words and "Slavic" culture. In any social network of developers, I did not find a word about the support of Ukraine, although they are from Poland. If theNot a bad story about the "Slavic" Baba Yaga with bad gameplay. I don't support Russia but I have doubts about the developer. During the time when Russia invaded the territory of Ukraine in this game you can hear a song with Russian words and "Slavic" culture. In any social network of developers, I did not find a word about the support of Ukraine, although they are from Poland. If the story about the game is interesting, the main character is written well, the voice actor played perfectly, these are all the pluses of the game. Of the minuses - the map is huge, but empty, there is no point and interest in fully exploring it. Enemies can block you and kill you without giving you a chance. In mini-games, I found several bugs because of which I had to start from the beginning. I don't like the souls like genre, but the game handled it well in terms of story and some of the battles. If you want a game with an interesting story, a huge map, and most often difficult opponents of the soul genre, then you can try it. We need to stop Russian culture in the world!

Jan 23, 2023Great story and really solid game play. its quite short but that's why its a lower price. Finally a developer who doesn't over reach. They decided kept it within their capabilities and nailed the core game! Well done!!

only worth 20 dollar
- 10 - 20 hours long.
- very repetitive gameplay, little enemies type, stupid ai, only one weapon with 3 type arrow, choices dont matter, long boring 2d sections.
-good atmosphere, Slavic folklore, mashrooms, black cat, good soundtrack, great optimized didnt get any glitch.
Feb 15, 2023Blacktail has a solid foundation, and incredible open world, but lack of weapons, spells, and enemies. Therefore, it will soon become stereotyped and less attractive.
Jan 24, 2023BLACKTAIL is an RPG full of exploration, crafting, and magic. Based on Slavic Folklore, this isn’t your typical happy story; this is a dark tale full of difficult choices. It may take some time to learn how to use your bow well, but once you figure out the proper timing and technique, you will be more successful in battle.
Jan 3, 2023Blacktail is a great game with some minor flaws here and there, but nothing that really takes away from the experience. The morality mechanics do a great job at shaping your abilities and what you’re able to do and the storytelling is pretty well done. If you’re not great at survival games you might struggle a bit with the game’s resource management, especially since your bow and arrows are your only physical weapons. Overall though, as long as you remember that survival is priority one and firing arrows at everything in sight is priority zero, you should still have an enjoyable time with Blacktail.
