    Asobo Studios needs to be applauded for creating something so stunning and fantastic in every way. It’s not easy to make you care about characters in a short dozen or so hours, and the fact that A Plague Tale will be etched into my memory is no small feat. I don’t like to loosely throw around the term “Masterpiece”, but this is absolutely one of my favorite games that I enjoyed whole heartedly in recent memory. Needless to say, this is one plague you won’t want to avoid.

    A Plague Tale: Innocence is grim, dark, and constantly provocative, and yet, it effortlessly manages to remain emotionally radiant throughout. This isn’t just another survival game, it’s a tale that consistently and articulately interlaces beauty with brutality to excellent effect. Whilst the gameplay could have benefited from a bit more depth, the overall journey is mechanically well balanced, and to its credit, unlike anything else. This, is a must have.

    A particular strength of the game is that it alternates between perilous action and periods of reflection where the characters process the changes they’ve observed in the world and in themselves.

    A compelling plot, grounded characters who aren't instant heroes, crafting and upgrades without arbitrary levelling and some beautiful environments to solve your way around.

    The story never lets you settle – it never guarantees the safety of Amicia or Hugo – and, even as some of the mechanics grow a little stale, that keeps A Plague Tale feeling breathless across its 12-hour runtime. [Issue#178, p.88]

    A Plague Tale Innocence is an intense and beautiful tale of Amicia and Hugo De Rune, about bonding and surviving. The solid story of the game combined with the nice level design and gameplay, make for a solid adventure.

    Given how believable this plague-ravaged world is, it’s unfortunate that A Plague Tale’s story falls short of its technical accomplishments.

But it really is. Amazing game, great story, cool graphics. Only downside is the last 3 chapteres felt a bit rushed in my opinion, the mystery behind plague and inquisition should be explained a little better. But maybe after awesome 3/4 of the game i had too big expectations. Anyway it really deserves highest score. One of the most satisfying AAA game i played in years, next to DOOM Eternal. Expand

    No le doy el 10 porque el juego es corto y la historia a veces suele ser un poco raro, pero, no por ello deja de ser una obra de arte.

It's a light game which is quite the opposite of dark souls with great narration and story. There are are 17 chapters with story progressing with each chapter pretty well. Overall, loved the game and 9 since I'm nitpicking a little because of a few bugs I found ( Ex: In one of the chapter, the textures didn't load at all so I had to restart the game). Expand

    Pay $49.99 for "indie" game?
    If you ever watch all-cutscenes in Youtube, you'll never buy this.

    Cons
    - Bad movements. You walks like skating.
    - NPC moves like robot. 90s 3D games are better.
    - Face expression is worst like overdone botox.
    - This is not a game. This is a collection of cutscenes.
    - Playable contents are extremely easy like mocking player.
    - Moving -> Cutscene -> Throwing rocks -> Cutscene -> Moving -> Cutscene -> ...

    Pros
    + You want to play for only Good Story?
    + Then watch all cutscenes youtube.
    + Save your $49.99
