    Husk is full of great purposes, but sometimes its great plot is not able to recover of the gameplay's repetitiveness. The game doesn't add new ideas to the overwhelmed genre of the first person horror adventures.

    One could also make the argument that if a game’s story is poor, the gameplay can at least make up for it, and vice versa. Husk manages come frustratingly close at times, leaving the game undone by its inconsistency.

    There are some great ideas and some good moments in Husk, but gameplay-wise, the experience isn't that good, and sadly it isn't what you would expect. The developers have promised to listen to the feedback and improve the game, so keep an eye on it, because even if now it isn't the game we want, it could end up being it.

    Husk is a psychological horror game with broken combat and stealth systems that consistently undoes any sense of tension it tries so hard to build.

    Despite its ambitious stride to tell a gripping tale of a father/husband striving desperately to look for his missing family, Husk‘s end delivery is anything but. With a host of mechanical and structural oddities breaking numerous points of immersion where it’s seldom gained — both before and after post-release updates — across environments that, though blended rather well into one another, could very well be found in ample other titles using horror as an attribute, Husk is a frustrating game to recommend. Marred by technical difficulties that come to question just how “finished” this game truly is/was, Husk is another example of a studio that have mistaken basic nostalgia for the wealth of enjoyment.

    HUSK is full of technical issues and bugs that affect the progress of the story. Great setting but very poor execution. Unplayable.

    The only positive thing I can write about Husk is that its soundtrack is decent. [04/2017, p.58]

    + Сюжет, банальный, но подан интересно;
    + Графика симпатичная, правда модели людей не очень;
    + Атмосфера;
    + Звуки и озвучка нормальная

    Что не понравилось:
    - Анимация монстров топорная;
    - Монстры глупые болванчики, которые не представляют особой угрозы и не умеют ходить по ступенькам;
    - Игра перестает пугать уже на 3й главе;
    - Несколько раз случались незначительные баги, застревания в текстуре:

    Игра пройдена мной за 5 часов и 15 минут. 5/10 с натяжкой

    Очень затянутый симулятор ходьбы. Информация для спидранов и просто людей, которые держат кнопку бега в таких играх постоянно или часто: оченьОчень затянутый симулятор ходьбы. Информация для спидранов и просто людей, которые держат кнопку бега в таких играх постоянно или часто: очень часто карта не успевает подгружаться (чаще приходиться ожидать, когда прогрузиться карта чтоб пройти блин дальше), да что уж там просто камерой поворачиваешь и боком видишь быстрые подгрузки стен. Нестрашно. есть 2 версии игры отличающиеся мелкими изменениями в полицейском участке и наносимом уроне пистолета. Сюжет толсто намекает на концовку. Не рекомендую.
    Итог: 5.000/10

    This is really an incredibly miserable game. 1. Unforgivably bad graphics with incredibly high demands. This is not even a bad optimization.This is really an incredibly miserable game. 1. Unforgivably bad graphics with incredibly high demands. This is not even a bad optimization. This is a complete inability to make computer games on the Unreal engine. From the first seconds, the game scares ... the ugly doll faces of the wife and children of the protagonist. 2. Awful gameplay. There are “interactive game elements” in the game, but they are made extremely poorly and do not bear any benefit in the game process. 3. The lack of logic in the gameplay and poor design locations. The hero can run several kilometers without problems, but is not able to cross the fence 1 meter high. 4. Awful combat system and physics. No, you can’t find such a bad fight even for the most unsuccessful PS1 games. 5. As a technical task, the composer was told to plagiarize several well-known connoisseurs of the genre of compositions from Akira Yamaoka. 7. Hundreds of bugs. A tombstone hanging in the sky. Glass shatters before a monster flies into them at the police station. Wind swaying trees through one (+ terrible animation). 8. The plot. He is not in this game. Just a set of clichés and second-rate plagiarism. Expand

    I played this game for about 15 minutes before I gave up. Horrible controls, ugly visuals and terrible game play mechanics. Clicking andI played this game for about 15 minutes before I gave up. Horrible controls, ugly visuals and terrible game play mechanics. Clicking and dragging to move stuff is not immersive nor fun. Got this in a bundle and it shows. Perhaps it is the greatest psychological thriller ever, I'll never know. Expand
