    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

    What is real? That's the game's tagline and it permeates throughout the game. Going through memories, exploring the past you never know what to expect. This is psychological thriller at its finest. The game has some slight horror themes and creepy atmosphere but it is not a horror game. It actually is a multitude of genres. Part adventure, puzzle solving, fps it does all these very well and tells an amazing story as well. In fact this game is heavily focused on story that some of the gameplay seems like an afterthought but that doesnt mean it isn't fun to play. The shooting mechanics are nothing new or exciting but some of the weapons like the corner gun are fun if a tad bit difficult to use at times. The graphics while not the best still look pretty good. It isn't a triple AAA game by any means but it looks decent and has some cool particle effects and visual effects at time. The sound design however is a huge plus. The sounds from footsteps to the sound of guns are all great and sound heavy. The music is also one of the best things about the game. It's a great soundtrack and just fit so well with the game. There is even a track that follows the characters loud breathing and one that follows wit a ticking clock. It's just so unique and sounds wonderful. The length of the game is good as well. It took me around 9 hours or so to reach the credits but I still don't know the full story as there is a ton of documents and items to find to fill in the blanks. A little plus I liked is once you find all the clues in a memory, you unlock a code which you can then enter the same memory and find an optional door that unlocks more back story and even new guns for your "mind palace" the mind palace is alittlw hub of information on the memories you've been to and your gun locker. It's a neat little place an reminds me of Sherlock. The best thing in this game though, aside from the Excellent soundtrack (seriously it's that good!) Is the story. It has so many moments where youll be confused, sad, angry and just what the hell is going on. O don't want to say to much about it because this game is super easy to spoil. Just know that it's worth experiencing. There are a few issues like dumb ai and muddy textures bit overall no real complaints Im so glad this game was worth the wait and you can see how much detail and complexity the story offers. It's a great little game and again it's not a AAA title. It's actually half the price of a full game at $29.99. it's well worth the money and time just to experience something different and unique. I highly recommend this one as it offers one of if not the best story in an fps, an amazing soundtrack and lengthy experience.

    The story is pretty good but far from masterpiece some are trying to make it. Graphics a bit shabby and outdated. Shooting mechanics are badThe story is pretty good but far from masterpiece some are trying to make it. Graphics a bit shabby and outdated. Shooting mechanics are bad but without it the game is a boring walking simulator, which comes in direct conflict with how the game is trying to make you avoid the combat. Music was very annoying at times. I liked the voice acting though. Got stuck in environmental textures about 5 times. Most frustrating, 90 percent of the time you have no idea what to do and where to go. You just “explore” with zero goal and zero direction Expand

This is my first review on here, and I'll say this game was so bad that it is the sole purpose I signed up to leave a review and warn people. Yes, it has a good story(so do movies..and I bought a game,or so I thought). The developers try to sell this as a shooter/survival horror game, it is a walking simulator. Period. You're so heavily discouraged from using any weapons or really doing anything except for walking from place to place to see a cutscene. Also, random note. Not ONE characters lips move for any talking parts (of which there are a ton) just looks and feels cheap. I paid 40cdn for this and I regret it so much. If you want a GAME, don't get this. I have yet to see a reviewer say "they pushed this game as a survival horror shooter, and it's a lie. You walk maybe do some puzzles, shoot nobody and walk some more." Seems to me a certain developer might be flooding the reviews with positive ones, just to make their money back on this ....playable movie? Rant over. Save your money! Expand
