    The Uncertain is an story-driven adventure game by ComonGames studio set in a post-apocalyptic world. Humanity disappeared from the face of the Earth and has been replaced by robots. In the first game The Uncertain : Last Quiet Day the main protagonist was an inventor robot RT, who finds himself among a small group of robots, trying to help surviving humans. In the second game The Uncertain: Light At The End we will see this post apocalyptic world through the eyes of one of the survivors: a girl named Emily. Together with her, the player has to find out the cause for humanity's disappearance: was it a rogue AI or something else entirely?

    Overall, Uncertain: Light at the End is a good, small-scale science fiction story. I don’t want to punish the game too harshly for its technical issues because the developers acknowledge them and are working hard to fix them in future patches. In the next year, the game is planned to be released on consoles as well. Hopefully, the developers will be able to fund the last part of the trilogy, so that Emily, together with an unlikely ally she met in the end, will finally be able to figure out the reason for the robot invasion.

    I feel weird rating The Uncertain: Light at the End, since I haven't played the prior title or the upcoming conclusion, but I also think that a game, whether it's part of an intended series or not, should stand on its own. Light and the End does not. The story is all right, and the premise behind the game is stellar, but the broken mechanics and omitted quality of life options made it really frustrating to play, and I didn't enjoy it. Hopefully the next game makes up for these shortcomings, but in the meantime, if you value your time, I would suggest skipping Light and the End in its current state.

    The Uncertain is a difficult game to discuss because it seems so hell-bent on getting in its own way. For every great choice that has been made, a new issue is just around the corner – Good voice acting? Terrible sound design. Great world visuals? Poorly designed characters. It’s truly a shame, as this game had so much potential and definitely wasn’t awful, but overall it just seems rushed and unfinished, with a story that’s over way too quickly.

    The Uncertain: Light at the End is a very rough project with a weak plot, outdated animations and a myriad of bugs.

    Post-apocalyptic settings can be many things, but boring should never be one of them, and The Uncertain: Light at the End is unfortunately exactly that, with its mediocre to bad writing, forgettable world and characters, and okay-ish to lacklustre puzzles. Even the best thing on offer, which is the design of each area, fails to leave an impact. The graphics are nice, but visual appeal and atmosphere are almost non-existent.

    Nothing about The Uncertain: Light at the End demands investment, unfortunately. A lot of work has gone into producing the game in terms of world design and presentation, albeit rather uninspired and derivative in execution, but the game design choices keep you at arm's length at all times. There are many alternatives to The Uncertain: Light at the End out there, more deserving of your time and money.

    The strong work done on its setting is consistently undermined by technical and storytelling problems, while its position as the second part of the trilogy means that its story beats are never successfully concluded. This could all be resolved with its final episode, but as it stands there's a lot of improvement needed.

    This game is the sequel to the game named "The Uncertain: The Last Quiet Day" (Episode 1). So it's basically Episode 2 of the series.

    It was quite an underwhelming ending and the game could have been a lot shorter if it wasnt for some of the missions that are just a waste of time.
