    For those wondering where the great classic survival horrors have gone – Signalis is right here, ready to welcome you. Rose Engine have taken inspiration from the greats in the genre. In some ways it pushes the genre forward. You may not vibe with how it plays on occasion but beyond that is an incredible story, with a memorable dystopian sci-fi aesthetic you’ll find hard to let go.

    Signalis is a pleasant surprise explicitly inspired by the best-known survivor horrors of the 1990s. The title adopts typical 32-bit mechanics and aesthetics to build a sci-fi horror that manages to establish an immersive and thought-provoking identity.

    For several years rose-engine channeled their creative prowess to create it's own take on Resident Evil and Silent Hill. The results are weird, purposely uneven, while at the same time beautiful and ambiguous. Basically it's everything and more you could have hoped for by listening to this radio frequency.

    An engaging story and a disturbing atmosphere are the best features in this game that recalls the gameplay style of classics 90s survival horror. A repetitive combat and bland stealth elements drop its overall value.
  5. For some players, Signalis will summon to mind the halcyon days of playing the original PS1 version of “Resident Evil 2” in the late ’90s, or even its miraculously faithful replica on the Nintendo 64. Signalis is itself something of a faithful replica, an acolyte in thrall to an old — and supposedly antiquated — master. But the game finds the classic survival horror genre in fine health.

    A stylish replication of survival horror’s roots, which manages to capture and refresh the unsettling horrors of the genre’s 90s origins.

    SIGNALIS does a decent job of offering a retro survival horror experience yet it doesn't do much to make it stand out from the crowd.

    Inspired by classic Survival Horror titles, Signalis is an engaging and unnerving adventure from start to finish. All of the hallmarks ofInspired by classic Survival Horror titles, Signalis is an engaging and unnerving adventure from start to finish. All of the hallmarks of Survival Horror are here; limited inventory, puzzles, backtracking, and strategic combat. The gameplay is solid, with puzzles that are just the right level of difficulty (your mileage may vary), and engaging combat. I do find some later game areas to be annoying to navigate without a map, and the aiming mechanic can be finicky at times, but overall it's enjoyable throughout my 11 hour playthrough. Sound design is well done, with a great soundtrack and an unnerving ambient soundscape. There is no voice acting in this game, so be prepared to read. I found the story enjoyable, although it is vague and filled with mystery. There are tons of notes left behind to fill in the world and I found the lore to be very interesting and I would love to learn even more about the world you inhabit. The game is absolutely worth every cent; if you're a fan of classics like REmake, Silent Hill, etc. go get this game. Expand

And absolutely beautiful ending (got "memory" on first playthrough). Expand
