    Observer System Redux is an absolute must-have, whether you played the original game or not. If you're keen on Cyberpunk and horror, you'll find here exactly what you want: a beautiful game, with a stunning universe and fantastic dialogues and storytelling. Improvements are more than welcome and offer a more attractive and intense experience. The best game Bloober Team has delivered. It clearly doesn't deserve to be lost in time like tears in rain.

    Observer: System Redux is one of the titles that has surprised us the most so far this year. A remastering of the title that appeared back in 2017 where the psychological thriller reaches its graphic climax proposing and convincing in all aspects.

    Observer: System Redux is a very high-quality psychological horror title, and truly one-of-a-kind (not counting the original, of course). While it may not provide players with many of the normal horror tropes and mechanics—choosing instead to almost entirely submerge them in atmosphere alone—it still manages to create a consistently unnerving environment, happily coated in a gorgeous cyberpunk aesthetic. So long as you don’t mind a more hands-off approach to horror, System Redux will absolutely not let you down.

    Observer: System Redux uses familiar sci-fi themes to create a compelling murder mystery in a haunting dystopian future. Though it takes place entirely in a derelict apartment building, the setting never feels restrictive, thanks in part to the clever mind-hacking sequences that let you explore the victims’ memories. It’s genuinely creepy, with the constantly building tension only interrupted by a few frustrating stealth sequences that feel like they came from another game. Even so, Observer: System Redux is a great display of survival horror storytelling.

    With all these new additions and improvements, I guess the answer some of you are looking for is whether Observer: System Redux is worth checking out if you’ve already played through the original. Well, there are several answers to that question. If you haven’t played it already, and you really dig horror and sci-fi stories, then you should absolutely play this game. If you played it and enjoyed it the first time, like myself, then yes, you should totally play Observer again. If you are looking for a game to show off your new toy to your friends or specifically want to see what cool new things Bloober Team added to Observer: System Redux, then you can definitely skip this one.

    The story is engaging and filled with noir goodness, the gameplay added to the feeling I was a memory hacking detective, and the visuals felt straight out of one of my favorite 80s movies. But the absolutely relentless and aggressive lights and patterns that invade the game a few hours in made it a hard game to finish. Because of this I still recommend it, but with a large and bold asterisk.

    La atmosfera del juego es bellísima, el unreal engine 4 luce genial, los efectos de sonido están bien cuidados, solo tienes que tener las ganas de jugar este tipo de juego, la historia esta separada por partes (los avances de trama se dan cuando Daniel usa el Observer) y es en la parte final donde el juego te va a explicar los puntos donde fue dejando huecos así que tienes que tener paciencia para entenderla porque hay momentos muy wtf, si lo juegas una segunda vez vas a entender mejor el juego y notar que de verdad el juego tiene una historia unida con cuidado, también tiene subtramas repartidas por el edificio, pequeños homenajes a bladerunner o P.T. ,se nota que el juego fue hecho con cariño.
    Recomiendo este juego 100%, sobre todo con cascos y luces apagadas es bestial.

Красивая графика, привычный геймплей как во всех симуляторах ходьбы типа леерс оф фир, ощущение гнетущего одиночества, психоделические трипы по глубинам разума - короче, отличный способ приятно провести пару вечеров Expand

I thought that I would not like this game because it feels like a walking simulator with no fighting but the more I played it the more I liked it. I ike that this game is different. It has Interesting settings in imagined polish cyberpunk city. Graphics are nice , it has good story, good horror elements. Artwork direction is inspired by polish city Cracow where the studio is located. Old "kamienica" is the example of the inspiration. (kamienica is the building that the game takes place). i would recommend it to anyone who likes horror or cyperpunk style games. (one suggestion: play this game with headphones, way better experience than with TV speakers) Expand

    Great cyberpunk, horror, detective game. The art and graphic scenes in this game are probably some of the craziest most creative I have everGreat cyberpunk, horror, detective game. The art and graphic scenes in this game are probably some of the craziest most creative I have ever witnessed. The gameplay itself can be very dull or slow but the story and atmosphere are something to behold. Not for every type of player as the game can be slow a walking simulator. This game should be in everyones library regardless. Expand
