    The Crow’s Eye is a strong experience that even those not as interested in the genre can access and enjoy.

    The Crow's Eye is a first person adventure of puzzles and platforms with psychological terror elements. Developed by the independent Spanish study: 3D2 Entertainment, we are transported to the mysterious University of Crowswood, where we break through a series of tests and discover an interesting and disturbing history.

    Creating effective horror depends on powerful moments of the the unexpected juxtaposed with long stretches of calm and the mundane. In general, The Crow's Eye understands the basics of the genre, but frustrating puzzles and platforming both dispel the drive of the narrative and alienate the player. Kudos for looking at a somewhat tired format through a new lens, but points off for implementation. Suggestion: give the player control over save points, pare the platforming to a highly-tuned minimum, and don't repeat the puzzles. Despite these caveats, The Crow's Eye is still worth a look for fans of dread-inducing exploration.

    A puzzle game with a pleasant narrative, and a decent voice acting. Still, the gameplay relies on puzzles not always satisfying, and the physics is not so precise in some occasions.

    The Crow's Eye is a strange title. It's a horror game in some ways, with great atmosphere for the most part. However, it's also not scary. For the most part it's more of a puzzle game, than horror game and has side-stories far more compelling than the main plot. In all, it offers an interesting, if flawed experience.

    Thrilling adventure with logic puzzles offers a decent drama from the "University of ghosts." However, it is missing originality and does not exceed the limits of the genre. It is a decent, but not breathtaking adventure.

    Crow’s Eye just doesn’t hold up to the greats. The juxtaposition of horror mystery against puzzle-platformer gameplay is jarring; as if gameplay and storyline were drawn up independently and then forced together during early design meeting. Perhaps the first-person puzzles were the intended focus of the title, but horror-genre theatrics proved more popular during limited focus testing, steering the development team’s world building and scripting down a weirdly counterintuitive path. I will admit that does seem like an oddly sceptical look at the game’s make-up, but it simply doesn’t feel organic. Serviceable gameplay mechanics are clouded by a confusing and unimpressive horror aesthetic that do little to elevate the proceedings above a quaint distraction.

    This game is absolutely fantastic. Although it was made by a small studio, The Crow's Eye has some important points to be considered.

    - The story that you can read in documents and hear on tapes is awesome, with a few plot twists that make this an interesting story.
    - The voice actors are so good. In particular William Holtwick who reminds me of Hamil's Joker.
    - The music is outstanding!!
    - The graphics are really good, bearing in mind it's an indie game.
    - While many of the puzzles involve pulling levers and moving boxes, they are short and satisfying to ensure they don’t become too repetitive.

    A good game where you can understand that it is not necessary to be a big company to make a fantastic project.
