    The title is a perfect match for gamers looking for the kind of survival horror title that the genre was founded on. The game might not offer the same kind of jump scares as titles like Resident Evil, but with a story inspired by the real-life cruelty of history, Whispering Willows might actually be scarier.

    Whispering Willows is suffering from the curse of mediocrity. It feels as if this game could have been more, but unfortunately never reached the heights to become a classic.

    Whispering Willows is by no means a masterpiece, but it is a beautiful world and an engaging atmosphere that unfortunately is wrapped in undeveloped gameplay and a not very compelling story.

    Whispering Willows is a game that sadly doesn’t stands to its premise and concept that, from the beginning, looked great. With a slow paced gameplay, null difficulty and ideas that feel incomplete or bad implemented, the game offers a pacific experience that could easily end up turning into a boring one.

    What lies in this shallow grave may still be enjoyable, but let's hope a second effort comes that digs deeper.

    It's a pity this gets disturbed by excessive loading times which drag themselves for far too long and that too much repetition of its ideas can make it dull and uninteresting after a short amount of time.
