    Blair Witch is a great horror experience. It's frightening and agonizing. It takes us back to our deeper fears. Despite not being technically impressing, gameplay and story manage to shine. Bloober Team shows us, once more, why is one of the best horror studios in the whole videogame industry.

    Some technical hiccups and out of place combat isn’t enough to stop this from being Bloober Team’s scariest game to date, and the best Blair Witch entry since 1999.

    Blair Witch captivated me in a way that no other horror game has ever done before. A brilliant story that is complimented by even better gameplay allows for an enjoyable, yet terrifying experience. It has a few issues in terms of gameplay but iron those out and it's near perfect.

    Managing to make the forest seem oppressive and claustrophobic, Blair Witch is adept at creating a tense and foreboding atmosphere, while weaving a compelling narrative that still proves exciting, even if you've sussed out the final twist hours before the end. You'll never look at trees the same way again.

    Blair Witch is a decent adventure… with an absolutely perfect ending. When Bloober Team do what they do best, it turns into a horror masterpiece, but you’ll need to endure a few hours of less inspired exploration to get to enjoy this. It is worth it, though.

    Blair Witch has got some good premises, but stumbles with a banalized plot and an overall boring and not so scary experience. Bloober Team's hand is still noticeable, but the game could maybe have benefited from a longer development time.

    Blair Witch, much like the rest of the franchise, is a disappointment. It's not scary, it's rarely interesting and it's not particularly fun to play. It has a solid look, but is lacking in just about every other department. I say this begrudgingly, but you're better off watching the films.

Joguei no xbox one X, o jogo tem problemas de fps, roda muito baixo, da enjoo e dor de cabeça... O game é só andar andar andar, com som apelativo e um cara (inimigo do game) falando merda do seu ouvido o tempo todo... O jogo se resume a passar horas tentando achar o caminho.
