    A Plague Tale: Requiem is the game of confirmation. That of a sister's faith in her little brother when the world crumbles at the foot of their defeat. Then, that of the great talent of Asobo Studios. Offering richer gameplay without upsetting the formula, this sequel never forgets the essentials in relation to the genre it targets. Amicia's desperate fight is at least as magnificent as the graphics and soundtrack that drive the work. The infiltration mechanics can challenge, and we would have liked a final finishing coat, but none of the defects encountered tarnish our judgment: with Requiem, the Bordeaux studio delivers a great vintage. Dark red as death.

    A Plague Tale: Requiem is a beautiful follow up to Innocence, ramping up every element that made the prequel so captivating. Its gameplay expertly combines puzzles, action and stealth with a story that absorbs you into its mystery and makes sure you feel every emotional beat along the way.

    A Plague Tale: Requiem continues the story from A Plague Tale: Innocence in a perfect way. Though its gameplay can become repetitive, this doesn’t take away from what is one the best games to come out this year.

    A Plague Tale: Requiem turns out to be a great game and practically everything in it manages to grab us. While it's true that its gameplay can be a bit clunky at first, if you decide to keep playing its deep and sentimental story, you won't regret However, it's a shame that it had to come to Nintendo Switch as a cloud version which limits the game in comparison to other platforms.

    We won’t mince words here: do not buy A Plague Tale: Requiem for the Switch, unless you have no other hardware to buy it on and are absolutely dead-set on playing it. This otherwise excellent narrative-driven stealth action game is torpedoed by cloud tech-related issues that blunt its best moments and offers an experience that is distinctly beneath what this game deserves. Technically, it’s better than not playing the game at all, but not by much. Do yourself a favor by either playing this excellent game elsewhere or by spending your money on something that’s tailor-made for the Switch.

    When Innocence came out, it took a lot of familiar things, like stealth action and environmental puzzles, and put them together into an experience that was unlike anything I’d ever played before. Requiem doesn’t have that advantage. The novelty isn’t there anymore. The puzzles are more complex, the world is a little bigger, but you’re still doing a lot of the same things. The good thing is that those things remain intense and terrifying, and Amicia and Huge’s plight continues to be fascinating to watch unfold. After two games, I still cringe at the site of thousands of ferocious rats and hold my breath until the kids find a momentary safe space. Many of the additions feel more like padding than necessary changes, and so the sequel doesn’t hold quite the same punch as the original — but that doesn’t make the rats any less scary.
