    If not for a few clunky gameplay mechanics, Little Hope would be the perfect horror game.

    With a more engaging cast of characters and an intriguing mystery at its core - leading to an insane mindfuck of an ending! - Little Hope is a definite improvement over its predecessor and hopefully a sign of even better things to come.

    The second chapter in the Dark Pictures Anthology is a major improvement over Man of Medan. With better pacing, a well written story and a great multiplayer mode, Little Hope is ideal for fans of horror and their friends.

    There are certain things that don’t quite connect and a handful of plot holes that stick out, but Dark Pictures: Little Hope is definitely worth your time if you’re a fan of the genre or liked Until Dawn and were disappointed with Man of Medan. It’s a game that’s best enjoyed when being played with a group of people to shout out which decisions to make and pass the controller around. At its best, Little Hope is chilling and gripping and creates an internal conflict in the player between wanting to press on and being too scared to see what lies behind the next door.

    Little Hope makes the direction of The Dark Pictures anthology clear, but it makes up for its evident formula with an interestingly convoluted story and increasingly nuanced branching paths.

    Little Hope doesn't have the charm of Man of Medan and its story is too predictable and not terrifying. Even so, it is a good option to play in the company of 5 friends.

    There is nothing offensive about the story in Little Hope, and nothing immediately sets off warning bells or narrative decisions I would tell players to consider before going into it. At most, the game is just boring and uninteresting.

    I’ve very much enjoyed the game. The dark and foggy setting has given it a Silent Hill feel. There are definitely a few scares along the wayI’ve very much enjoyed the game.

The thought the characters were much better compared to the last. Well done to everyone involved, I look forward to the next. Expand

    I love supermassive games, they play out like an interactive horror/ thriller movie, and I was so hyped about the next instalment Little Hope,I love supermassive games, they play out like an interactive horror/ thriller movie, and I was so hyped about the next instalment Little Hope, great to see Pip Torrens return as the curator I cant imagine anyone else playing him he does a superb job again, and this one stars Will Poulter as one of the main characters and he also does a very good job, very impressive voice acting for a certain part he plays, the game as they always do looks stunning, they obviously have some very talented designers working for them, the town of Little Hope looks great with some very eerie/ stunning looking locations and a special mention to the monsters/ demons they look amazing its easy to tell so much work/ effort and thought has gone into them, I was shocked at the writing of the game with its many twists and layers again it stands out a mile they have alot of very talented people, if the thought of a interactive horror with many twists/ outcomes and deaths lol sounds good to you, you will love this, I cant wait for House of Ashes!
    9/10 superb game with amazing writing, design, great acting and Pip Torrens! ^^ Very talented team of people

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. From somebody who unironically loved Man of Medan and also adores Until Dawn this game was a huge letdown. Not only for the twist that ruins any kind of replayability since nothing really matters and is extremely linear but all the characters suck. Daniel and Andrew are devoid of any personality, Taylor is annoying from beginning to end and is needlessly difficult for most of the game always trying to argue over anything. John and Angela are basically the only two I gave a rat's ass about since they were fun characters. Angela with her snarky comments but badass attitude by the endgame and John development from a scared old asthmatic man to a badass person who tries his best to help people (depending on your choices he can literally save every other character except Andrew). The plot was somewhat intriguing until the twist happens completely nullifying the experience since they basically do the same twist from the previous game but MUCH worse. Technically speaking this is a much better produced the game, movements are fluid and it's a bit more action packed than Medan but it just takes to much time to get started and first two hours are a bit of a bore (mostly due to Daniel and Taylors side of the story which is very boring if you don't really care about them). Overall it's fine I guess but the twist and the 3 of the 5 characters really makes me just not give this game anything higher than a 6. I also forgot all characters basically live or die by ONE decision you make in the whole game. Yeah, this game is really bad compared to Medan, Hope the next one is much better cause this one was not really worth it. Expand

Could you guys check what you’re selling before loading it up to store? The worst game from supermassive so far. Clunky animations, long loading, missing voiceovers, unlocalized parts of dialogues.
