  1. So we have a very atmospheric game with good storyline and puzzles. And it is retailing for only US$10. If you don't mind the dark story elements, then this game deserves a place on your shelf.

    If you're into the surreal, love your puzzles or you're simply sick of formulaic puzzle/adventure games, this could just be the perfect tonic for you. [Nov 2007, p.89]
  3. I hate to pound on a game that at least tries to be different, but Vigil needs a bunch more polish and a bunch more content before I’d even consider it to be a full game, let alone something worth buying, and so you should be wary of it, even at the $10 bargain price it has now.

    Superb artistic design, broken game. [Oct 2007, p.76]
  5. Play this game if you enjoy feeling hopeless and frustrated or are just plain curious as to how a game would specifically seek to bring about such a feeling. Otherwise, you'd be wise not to bother.

    The core game itself can't stand alone and captivate its audience as much as it confuses them. [Oct 2007, p.65]

    Decent adventure game worth the $9.95. It is not of the calibur of the SCUMM based games in the old day though. I am interested to see what Decent adventure game worth the $9.95. It is not of the calibur of the SCUMM based games in the old day though. I am interested to see what Freegamer/Meridian4 offer up in the next episode. Pros: Interesting art style, creepy music/atmosphere. Weird story. Cons: Game screams for some AA and AF settings, higher resolutions, and widescreen support. Also in desperate need of an actual save feature since what it currently offers is horrible. And a few technical issues in the audio area (hiss and popping). Full Review »

    The only way this could become an eight or higher if it were in color, and spoke English.
