    I was very pleasantly surprised by A Plague Tale. Don't let its setting or theme cloud your judgment and keep you from playing this game. It's a fun and rather unique game, and one that will compel you to keep playing it until you reach its end.

    A Plague Tale: Innocence delivers a brilliant story, innovative mechanics and truly immersive gameplay. Yes, the whole dying and repeating exercise occasionally borders on the the fine line of annoyance. But when you consider the visuals, the audio and the experience as a whole, I would highly recommend this journey into the past.

    A Plague Tale: Innocence is a refreshing take on stealth, riddles and RPG elements. Amicia and Hugo's story is well written and, as characters, they show one of finest and strongest relationships in videogames. A Plague Tale: Innocence mixes perfectly fairy tales, death, Plague and 14th century hardness. Just enjoy one of the best AA games of the year.

    One of my favorite moments is when Amicia spots another wildflower in a lone trek across the city, nestled among the decay of the rats’ revolting nests. Without her brother around, she picks it up, and places it gingerly in her own hair--a personal reminder to keep trudging on amidst the hardships, and a testament to her growing strength and tenacity. Despite flashes of predictability, moments like these will bring a lump to your throat, as it did mine.

    A Plague Tale, at times, feels like a missing early chapter of the Assassin's Creed catalogue. Its ability to bend a truly fascinating point in documented history into a fantastical, mythical story that keeps you invested from start to finish is remarkable. It's a cinematic journey that is uncomplicated in its delivery, managing to occupy gamers without distracting from the game's narrative and the bond that develops between the de Rune siblings which, in the end, is A Plague Tale's undoubted strength.

    A Plague Tale: Innocence brings a really good balance between narrative design and game design. The duo, well written, explores a rich universe during 14 to 15 hours of infiltration, puzzzles and tense sequences.

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

No pude evitarlo, y me he lanzado a por él.
    Es increíble, a pesar de ser de bajo presupuesto tiene acabados buenos en todas sus facetas, y sin duda es una compra recomendada.

    Voy a empezar por su apartado negativo, la IA deja muchísimo que desear dando incluso lugar a algunas situaciones un tanto rocambolescas y empiezo por esto pues el resto es sencillo de analizar, obra maestra! es absolutamente inmersivo e inolvidable, os gusten o no los juegos lineales, las películas interactivas, juguéis a lo juguéis, independientemente de dónde lo hagáis, vuestra lengua materna y hasta vuestra puñetera religión!!!!, haceros un favor y viajar a la Francia del S IV!!!

    That time when you launch the game just because and got stunned by its quality.
    Only 1 flaw for me is gameplay, its feel outdated like x360 times

    This game, for the majority if it, was surprisingly good, even great, but its handful of flaws start to wear on you towards the end.

    While the gameplay does have a few unique tricks up its sleeve, it's *extremely* derivative of games like The Last of Us (the stealth, crafting, AI companions, environmental puzzles). The story, for about the first half of the game, is very intriguing and has a great sense of mystery, but it takes a turn for the ridiculous at around the 4th quarter.

    My biggest complaint is the sudden difficulty spike during the final chapters. The difficulty was almost perfectly balanced leading up to this, then suddenly devolves into cheap trial and error.

    For a budget game, it's definitely better than you'd expect, but it's not something I'd encourage anyone to rush home and download. If anything, I'd say wait for a price drop. It's worth your money, but not $50 of it.
