    Get Even is one of the most atmospheric games I have played. The music and sound effects do a remarkable job in setting the tone and the story proceeds nicely as your detective skills and memories build the narrative. It is primarily built around exploration and discovery, but does it in a way that is wonderfully entertaining. The combat elements work well, and the sleuthing and stealth all combine to make the game a fulfilling experience, one that has you sitting on the edge of your seat until you reach the conclusion.

    This is an extraordinary gaming experience. Somewhere between shooter, stealth, sleuth, sci-fi technology and psychological horror The Farm 51 relinquishes conventions. Imagine a party where The Matrix, Inception and Total Recall celebrate with Layers of Fear, Metal Gear Solid and Alan Wake. Sounds weird? Yes. And then some.

    Like Spec Ops: The Line and Alpha Protocol, Get Even is a flawed game whose strengths dwarf the mechanical weaknesses. Expect it to start popping up on podcasts or in long-form articles in the next few months, accompanied by the ever-present caveat “well, the combat bits aren’t particularly good” and then praise for almost everything else. It’s probably going to pick up 6/10 type scores in most places that aren’t here, and I can completely understand why. The shortcomings are easy to point out, but Get Even delivers a complex, non-linear narrative full of clever misdirection, shifting truths, and conflicted characters in a way few other games can match.
  4. Get Even offers to players a quite different survival horror experience from beginning to the end. It has a different gaming experience, dramatic story and atmosphere for a survival horror game.

    The biggest reason to finish the game is its multi-layered and complex story that’s prone to turning everything you know upside down at the drop of a hat. From medical drama to corporate intrigues to family problems – Get Even delivers what’s expected from a psychological thriller. [Issue #222, p.60]

    Get Even creators have probably lost both fans of horror games and shooters by layering the story and dosing it through shorter memories. But they attracted both the fans of thrillers and fans of exciting stories – which is definitely quite an achievement.

    There's no questioning that Get Even offers a different dimension to the first person shooter genre, yet it struggles to maintain the aspects that make it most unique, quickly devolving into a repetitive cycle.

Klimat gry jest po prostu świetny, podkreślany przez genialną oprawę audio. Początkowo niełatwo mi było przyzwyczaić się do nagłych przeskoków do różnych wspomnień i lokacji, ale pod koniec, gdy wszystkie wątki zostały ze sobą połączone, a wiele wydarzeń pokazano w zupełnie innym świetle, przez długi czas wpatrywałam się w ekran z otwartą gębą :D Expand

    The graphics are good, my necro-laptop pulled on the average of 40 fps.
    It's a shame that the game didn't say right away that "stunning" from behind = murder...well, I can't read easily

    It's a very interesting game. Thriller and shooter. Get even no doubt inspired by the Condemned. We were promised photorealistic graphics, butIt's a very interesting game. Thriller and shooter. Get even no doubt inspired by the Condemned. We were promised photorealistic graphics, but its not even close. But it does not hurt that the graphics are so good. The game also has good music, which in conjunction with the picture makes the atmosphere, and you sit there in suspense. The plot to Get interesting and even catchy at times keeps the tension. But the gameplay itself is very boring. The plot is not so you cling to experience this terrible gameplay routine. You walk from your cell and you're scanning. Sometimes you shoot. But even shuterny gameplay to make sad, while you have an interesting gadget that helps you to shoot from the corner. Sometimes you solve a puzzle, they are not difficult, but there are curious. I would like to play the game to the end, but it's boring, and takes place in the bleak scenery, the gameplay is dull - it's almost a Walker, but we still shoot. Yes, the game is atmospheric, Yes, the plot is twisted and interesting, but the people who made Painkiller are unable to do intersny gameplay. The game can be completed just for the sake of the plot, and just endure the dull gameplay. Expand

    A video game that tells a great story but does not take care of the other sections.

    A very interesting story, with a good narrative thread, good twists of plot and a grand finale.

    While there are interesting things like puzzles, the action scenes do not convince at all.
    The mobile phone is used correctly; some functions do not feel good, however.
