Contrast - Teaser Trailer
Nov 13, 2013Despite these setbacks, Contrast crafts an amazing world and continuously invents clever new ways for you to interact with it. The story is fantastic, bolstered by strong voice performances and a jazzy soundtrack that nails the mood. Few games can consistently grab your attention and wow you with each passing moment like Contrast can.

It's nice to have a game you can take your time with and not have to play at a blistering speed of impossible hand/eye coordination talents. My entire family has really enjoyed playing this game.… Expand

Full of interesting puzzles, fantastic artwork, wonderful music, an engaging story, and somewhat above average acting.
There is no fast action in this game, save for a few timely maneuvers that need to be made while solving puzzles. The whole game can be completed in 1-3 hours. The camera and controls can be quirky at times, causing some slight annoyance; but I never encountered anything game-stopping or overly frustrating.
It's not until late in the game that some puzzles become slightly challenging; but only the ones in the first Act (out of 3 Acts) are pitifully obvious. I was able to find all collectibles except 2 on the first run through the game; and the 2 I missed were simply because I went somewhere that forced a scene/Act change before I thoroughly explored.
The story is quite engaging, if (like me) you are attracted more to a story in a game than the actual game itself.
The voice talent in the game is pretty good; however some of the flow is quite sub-par. Primarily, this complaint is directed to fact that you basically do everything in this game, while the character you are aiding in the plot for the most part just tells you where to go and what she needs you to do next.
Pros: Artwork, Music, Story, Concept, Puzzles, Talent, Somewhat Easy
Cons: Brevity, Control/Camera Glitches, Maybe Too Easy for Some, Little-to-No Replay Value… Expand
Jul 15, 2014Contrast might not be as clever or challenging as it could have been, or even as it already believes itself to be. Fact is that the so calledContrast might not be as clever or challenging as it could have been, or even as it already believes itself to be. Fact is that the so called puzzles are rather easy and the hours of the game scarce. But what it does actually deliever is a beautiful and atmospheric adventure with a nice little message to all of its players.… Expand

As I understand many of the initial bugs have been patched, but playing the game as it was originally released led to plenty of frustration in terms of the character getting stuck somewhere, being able to "cheat" using shadows, etc.
However, it's a short enough experience that it deserves a play through, not to mention the obvious appeal of it being free to PS+ subscribers at the moment.
It wasn't a particularly memorable game, but I had fun with it.… Expand

It honestly did not make me feel like i was playing a next generation game. The concept is actually very interesting. You play as a girl's imaginary friend who can morph in and out of shadows. You use this power to solve puzzles, some of which were pretty difficult, especially towards the end of the game.
The graphics do not look good. Yes, i just go ahead and drop it like that. I did not think it looked appealing, especially considering this is a PS4 game. It just didn't click with me. The gameplay is fun though. I enjoyed solving puzzles in the "shadow world". There are box puzzles though. That is where the game drags, having to pick up boxes, move boxes, move them again. Also there is a fair share of bugs and glitches, some forcing me to restart the game. On a final note, i love the 1920's atmosphere of the setting.
Contrast is not a game i can really recommend, or i would go back and play again myself. 6/10… Expand

However, way too many bugs and glitches from being trapped in small spaces, boxes being lowered slowly to the ground, random character freezes during object interactions. I also did not like the fact that there are no people, only shadows (makes no sense anyway but in guess the protagonist is a shadow jumper) it is eerie and not in a good way, it feels hollow. It was a bit hand holdish in places too.
That said I liked the concept and it isn't a bad game so in my view deserves more than 5. I think a 6 is fair. The game 'should have been" like the princess scene. That was fun. Like a 2d Cave style platformer
I don't normally go back to games but given it is such a short game I may try and get all the trophies… Expand

It is just completely a non entity. As for a replacement for Drive club at release... I am astounded it made it in. Such a bad game. Don't even waste the band width downloading… Expand
