    Being a tormented soul which travels between bodies to escape Hell is a great idea. And there are some good design choices made in Agony, but everything falls apart because of its mediocre graphics, poor controls and unpredictable AI.

    A depiction of hell that hasn't really been fully realised before, Agony is marred by frustrating stealth sections and some poorly explained mechanics. The horrifying imagery is generally effective and the overall presentation manages to survive some glaring technical issues, but this is very much an acquired taste in every sense of the word.

    Agony is, true to its name and intentions, a hellish experience. My excitement for the game was quickly quashed behind bugs, crashes and unbalanced gameplay, failing to live up to the potential of the game’s core ideas and outstanding visual design. I hope that I can travel back to Hell following some substantial patching but, as things stand, Agony is torture in all the wrong ways.

    Agony represents everything that a horror videogame should never become.

    Frustrating stealth sections, uninspired puzzling, and dull action make Agony gaming hell. [Aug 2018, p.73]

    Agony clearly deserves its name. The gameplay mechanics are chaotic, at best, the AI is plain dumb, the level-design is muddled, the scenario is boring… Well, there’s nothing to save here.

    From the muddy, jagged visuals to the slow and poorly paced gameplay, Agony would suit as another circle of hell. It’s horrifying, but certainly not in the way it was intended to be.

A very imaginative design in theOriginal horror game whose main attraction for the player is the setting where the story takes place. Hell. A very imaginative design in the levels where the grotesque and the beautiful merge to offer us a unique experience. There is no other offer than this one to explore hell, from the point of view of a soul in pain.

    This is a survival horror game that follows the precepts of games like those developed by Frictional Games or Bloober Team. Linear development where we must advance solving puzzles, looking for clues and avoiding the grotesque hell creatures to achieve our goal. After finishing the first journey as a soul in pain, we can continue unlocking the succubus mode, which allows us to enjoy the journey from a slightly different perspective and with other skills.

    Recommended if you find it at a good price. It is also available in several platforms.

    Agony is a decent try but unfortunately fall short.

    The Graphics are medium towards bad, the gameplay is interesting but the lack of in game map presents a dull overall experience.
    The plot is good but since i have not yet finished the game i am in no position to judge that aspect of the game.

    For the current price is certainly worth your time, and believe me the title Agony is spot on for that game. ( Remember me when your character die, see what happens)

With gratuitous amounts of violence and masochistic overtones, this blood-soaked adventure is not for the faint of heart. But while its bold and detailed environments depict Hell in the most nightmarish ways possible, even the fantastically obscene sights and creepy sounds become mundane and dull by the end of its series of repetitious mazes, unimaginative item hunts, and weak stealth gameplay.
