Face the realities of a collapsing society as you make difficult choices in seemingly lose-lose situations. The plague isn't just a disease. You can't save everyone.
    The plague is devouring the town. The chief local healer is dead, and you are now to take his place. You'll have to look for unexpected allies. The local kids are hiding something. Try playing by their rules.

    You only have 12 days.

    FEATURES
    * 12 days in an odd town ravaged by a deadly disease.
    * Time is of the essence: if you don't manage it carefully, it'll simply run out. You'll have to choose how to spend the priceless minutes you have.
    * Survival thriller. You'll have to manage your bodily functions, offsetting hunger, thirst, exhaustion, and so on. It doesn't boil down to scavenging resources. Surviving on your own is hard; you'll have to win over allies.
    * An uphill battle. Managing your bodily parameters may seem bearable at first, and as time goes by, it becomes harder and harder. Your own body is only waiting for an opportunity to give up and betray you. Things are changing from bad to worse and the odds are stacked against you.
    * A duel with an enemy you can't kill. Your main foe is the plague itself, an incorporeal and malevolent entity that you have to defeat without having the means to. It's more powerful and more treacherous than you can imagine.
    * Loot, murder, mug, steal, barter, beg or don't. You need resources to survive, and it's up to you how to obtain them.
    * The fights are short, ungraceful, and vicious. They're not always lethal though. Many people, yourself included, would prefer to exchange their wallet for their life.

    The best way to describe Pathologic 2 is to imagine a parallel world where Tarkovsky is a video game maker. Pathologic 2 shows a world on the verge of annihilation, and a hero who is looking for redemption on a dark path.

    Ifbyou can stand the jank and that esoteric intro section, this is one train you definitely don’t want to miss. [Issue #175, p.76]

    Pathologic 2 does a fine job of capturing the feelings of a town under distress, though it can feel like a painful chore to play with technical glitches and loading times hindering the experience overall.

    "Magic game". This game is more interesting than Death Stranding. Yes, Kojima is genius, but Death Stranding is worse than Pathologic 2.

    Not bad, real not bad. I'm very love Ice-Pick Lodge's projects, particularly "The Void". This game can give a real challenge for hard player.

    I think that the game has a great simulation of a town in need of help.
    There are however some issues.
    The game has crashed several times for me.
    And when you enter a new region it takes a long time to load unlike the steam version.

Ледорубы видимо забыли, что игру нужно оптимизировать, а уже после выпускать продукт, который хоть слегка будет играбельным. Учитывая его цену на пс4, разработчики просто плюнули в лицо, как фанатам, так и новым игрокам.
    Патчи не выходят до сих пор, абсолютно никакие. Пару раз, сейвы ломались на четвёртом дне и на восьмом, приходилось начинать заново. Подгрузки каждые пять секунд, нет, я правда не шучу. Пробежал метров 15-ть, подгрузка, открыл карту, подгрузка, открыл инвентарь, снова подгрузка. Эти самые подгрузки, бывает затягиваются до 10-ти секунд. Так же, ледорубы и не думают отвечать на вопросы о патчах, приятнее писать спасибо тем, кто хвалит игру.
    Я знаю, что на ПК тоже есть проблемы, но это не повод прятаться при любом техническом вопросе от игроков.
    Лучше всего, купите на ПК за меньшую цену и насладитесь игрой, если нет ПК, то ещё лучше, забыть о игре от ледорубов, до выхода патчей, которых наверняка не будет.
