    Like its setting, The Shore is both rugged and stunning. While lacking finesse and complexity in gameplay, the Lovecraftian horror adventure is unquestionably impressive as an almost one-man indie effort. Standing out from other Cthulhu Mythos games, The Shore is stuffed with cinematic moments that establish the scale and otherness of its universe. It’s very brief, but that helps make a detour to The Shore worthwhile.

    The Shore is short and has some truly questionable design choices, but its strong visuals and unsettling atmosphere will possibly make it worth a look for horror fans who don't mind being annoyed.

    Youre in search of your daughter and of course ocean monsters wanna help you find her.
    At firs I absolutely loved the shore.. it felt like pure ps3 nostalgia… the music, the level design, the environment.. it was like exploring an elder scrolls game for the first time… exploring the area to find items to place them in other items blocking my path, going to the epths of the ocean, solving simple puzzles but excited to see whats on the other side of the corner.. and im gonna tell you whats on the otherside of this gret one 3rd of the game.. pure mediocrity.
    The shore becomes unbearable at times beyond its intial hour… for starters, this game feels unpolished and buggy, youll get stuck having to kback out of the game completely to progress.. youre given an item to kill enemies and then youre immeditaly thrown into a section with overr powered 100 foot tall tree monsters that chase you, instantly respawn after you kill them, and are lighting fast.. one of the most frustratingly annoying sections ive ever played through in a game… what was the point of giving me an item to kill things and then instantly put me in a room where it doesn’t work? If you somehow managed to not put the controller down and walk away there, don’t worry. The shore does everything it can to make you want to stop playing, from puzzles and section with no logical epxlination.. to litrally a room full of hundreds of heads, and the game wants you to find the right one without telling you what to look for or even thats what it ultimately wants.. youre just in a room of heads…
    It breaks my heart to tare this game apart, especially because of how much I loved the beginning, sure itlooks and feels dated, but it felt like magic going back to a game that looks the way it does in the way playing a remaster of an old favorite feels… but the game just falls apart around its strong start and theres no part of me tha can recommend this game.
    I give the shore
    a 3/10
