    Goetia is a beautifully crafted and intricately complex game set in a fantastically spooky world. It’s a must-play for horror and supernatural mystery enthusiasts, though not for those afraid of a little challenge.

    A dash of fresh air and a game that's a must buy for fans of point&click adventures. The story and atmosphere will grasp the player until the very end, letting him visit various locales. Goetia isn't high-budget but delivers a high-excitement experience.

    I did like Goetia, and I especially liked the visuals which were truly entrancing. I also liked the plot and the way that I could play it for a prolonged period of time without realising just how long I’d been on it. That sheer feeling of being engrossed is something I look for in a game, especially with horror games being my favourite genre. Goetia can be difficult at points and can lead to frustrating moments, but overall I was definitely impressed.

    Goetia is a pleasant surprise by the french studio Sushee. It is a well-written, intelligent, challenging and attractive game. A good price too.

    Goetia is a difficult point-and-click adventure that tests your resolve, with an engaging story and some beautiful visuals.

    It has beautiful graphics, a truly intriguing storyline, and just enough creepiness to keep you on the edge of your seat. If you’re thinking of giving Goetia a try, I’d recommend turning off the lights and playing with headphones to really get the most out of it!

    Goetia is a bewitching good point and click with a fantastic atmosphere and a few flaws. The difficulty of the whole experience can be repulsive to some players. But old school lovers who love to look around and read before finding a solution to a puzzle, will surely get what they want.

The atmosphere is excellent,This game is oddly underrated, I easily considered it one of the best point and click adventures ever created. The atmosphere is excellent, the writing sophisticated, the puzzles challenging, the story intriguing to the very end. Some people say the puzzles are vague even nonsensical, I say rubbish to that. It took me 3 days to finish the game on my own and I only needed two very specific hints. But to be fare, I needed one or two hints playing almost all the point and click adventures I played in my life (and I hate cheating really). This is a very old discussion, what's challenging to some might not be to others. But if you go through a physics book and can't understand most of it don't claim that physics are nonsensical, maybe you lack the wit, just saying. But back to Goetia, I humbly believe it's a little jewel that deserves your attention. Expand

    Goetia is a beautiful game but it has some severe flaws

    1. Information needed is often scattered to very distant parts of the game, or, it’s unclear if the information needed is near or to a completely different zone. Sure, that could in theory be not a problem for some people but I believe recent history has proven games have advanced from complete disconnection to a more tidy fashion for collecting information and at least for most people parts of the game may prove frustrating.

    2. The inspected items that are almost completely irrelevant to the story do not disappear after examined once, or at least they are not shown with an altered color. Sure, like 1, that could be considered good, but mainly by elitists and a minority.

    3. Some puzzles seem almost nonsensical, though point 1 might be to blame since even if the information is available, it might be unclear where that is to be found in scope. In general, it seems to flood the gamer with more info than it should.

    Goetia is a strange but very positive point and click adventure where you play as a ghost of a young lady, trying to solve a mystery.

    With nice visuals and a very dark and ghostly environment with the game is a challenge and some times not in a good way. The puzzles are complex and sometimes difficult to make sense, I need hours to figure them out and sometimes only with random guessing. Something that after a while becomes frustrating and we end up giving up.

    The music is great and fits like a glove into the environment. But despite I really liked the idea I cannot recommend it. Maybe a new future chance will change my opinion.
