    Like most movies of the thriller genre when you go and replay the game you will likely find things you missed and understand things a lot more but even if you play it only once it does a good job of explaining everything and has a very satisfying ending (regardless of which one you end up getting).

    Get Even is going to be a surprise hit title in my opinion. It just has that certain something to it. I do think it will be one of those sleeper hits that many will miss, but hopefully fans of the genre get behind it and spread the word. It certainly deserves it. A lot of thought has been put into the game to make it something memorable.

    Get Even is an interesting hybrid - you'll find pieces of a walking simulator, a stealth game, a shooter, a puzzle adventure and a really well written thriller. Not only the story is pretty exceptional - so are the audio and music. The overall quality is good enough to prevent mediocre graphics and some level cloning from having fun. Good job.

    Despite some technical failings, the narrative and the atmosphere make the trip to Get Even worth taking.

    An unusual, occasionally powerful, must-play game. [Issue#189, p.79]

    Despite its flaws, Get Even is still a very worthwhile experience. The game’s narrative is a little predictable, but it’s told well. It builds tension unlike anything else, and uses jump scares sparingly to give maximum effect. It’s a great game, with unfortunate quirks holding it back – which will hopefully get patched out.

    Get Even had a good base of neat ideas, but the execution of the overall product is so poor that many areas feel unfinished. Combat is quite simply a disaster, the graphics look like they’ve been taken from a 2008 PS3 game, and the soundtrack crushes your enjoyment far too often. The plot may well grab your attention, but the act of actually playing Get Even is nothing but a chore.

Klimat gry jest po prostu świetny, podkreślany przez genialną oprawę audio. Początkowo niełatwo mi było przyzwyczaić się do nagłych przeskoków do różnych wspomnień i lokacji, ale pod koniec, gdy wszystkie wątki zostały ze sobą połączone, a wiele wydarzeń pokazano w zupełnie innym świetle, przez długi czas wpatrywałam się w ekran z otwartą gębą :D Expand

    Unique experience.
    Great athmosphere, amazing music and very interesting storyline. A game that is different from any other that I played. Its not an AAA title but it's not priced as AAA and it is definitely a great AA game, that gives a lot of fun, if you're into games that require thinking.

Even though it had the somewhat usual story tropes through flashbacks/memories I felt like it was handled good. The concept for the game is extremely original and it is really cool. The combat on the other hand has some cool things they do with the guns and morphing abilities, but feels like an average FPS during it. The game really shines when you are not in combat and just trying to figure things out with a little bit of puzzle solving. Overall really good game especially only paying $30 for it is great with a roughly 6-8 HR long campaign too isn't bad at all. Expand

Although a twisted story that you have to follow its events step by step to capture the overall events but the revenge part is apparent when you make it towards the end. Was a bit surprised this was called a shooter. Expand

    Word of advice stay away from this game not worth $20 or $30 . The trailer is very misleading your going into the game thinking they're goingWord of advice stay away from this game not worth $20 or $30 . The trailer is very misleading your going into the game thinking they're going to be enemies and some fight scenes but it mostly a walking 3D simulator. The graphics are bland and boring almost thought it was a late ps2 game or very early crossgen ps3. Music and sound effects is lame and forgettable. Story very convoluted and all over the place and feel like the groundhog movie where it repeat over and over again. this felt like an early access steam game . I Couldn't get around to beat it and that rare for me unless i just lose interest . But This is obvious for completely different reasons, If you're bored and got nothing to play there like approximately over 900 plus PS4 game this generation try some of them before you play this one.
