    There are only a handful of titles that I come across that I would truly recommend gamers to experience — Get Even is one such example. If you enjoyed titles like Quantum Break and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, with an element of thriller thrown in, you’re sure to enjoy this.

    Get Even might be the Inception game we deserve. The script and the constant plot twists present one of the most twisted scenarios I’ve ever played. The tense atmosphere that surrounds the game will catch us until the end while revisiting the memories of a dramatic event.

    Get Even is a winner, and if you like film noir, dark crime stories and/or games that make you think, then you need to check it out.

    It's not a shooter, nor a survival horror or a graphic adventure. Get Even is a mix that creates a terrifying experience that could've been written by Stephen King. It has some mistakes in the gaming design, compensated for by a lot of hours of gameplay.

    Get Even is better as an experience than as a game, but it’s an extremely evocative experience. Even still, what could have been a completely unique gaming experience is hampered by its desire to be a more action-oriented, generic thriller.

    Get Even uses some light brushstrokes of cliches but ultimately paints a picture much more unconventional than it may at first seem. In both story and gameplay, your expectations will be subverted several times over. Not all of its risks pay off, but when they do they ensure the game is a refreshing addition to the medium. Part shooter, part exploration and investigation while always compelling, Get Even is the strange mashup of Saw and Eternal Sunshine we never knew we wanted. If you play games for story and can forgive some forgettable shootouts and visuals, Get Even may someday be a fond memory of yours.

    Good ideas are drowned out by a confusing story and frustrating controls. [Sept 2017, p.72]

Klimat gry jest po prostu świetny, podkreślany przez genialną oprawę audio. Początkowo niełatwo mi było przyzwyczaić się do nagłych przeskoków do różnych wspomnień i lokacji, ale pod koniec, gdy wszystkie wątki zostały ze sobą połączone, a wiele wydarzeń pokazano w zupełnie innym świetle, przez długi czas wpatrywałam się w ekran z otwartą gębą :D Expand

    I really enjoyed this game but there are some issues that kept it from getting a higher score. The biggest problem I have is the gameI really enjoyed this game but there are some issues that kept it from getting a higher score. The biggest problem I have is the game punishing you for using all the weapons you work so hard collecting. The forced stealth that is so difficult when you can't really see and can't use devices to help you see without losing your map. Worst of all are the choices to get the "good" ending which is almost identical to the "bad" ending. In my opinion these endings should be reversed, I think the bad ending is a more just outcome. Really, don't waste your time going for the "good " ending unless you need the gamer score because I think you might be really mad for putting in all that effort for such a slight change. Overall for the price this is better than most full priced games so you will get value for your money. One more thing, be careful not to explore too far off the beaten track as you will get stuck in the environment and have to reload but the game does have a good check point system so this isn't too big a deal.. Basically a good game that could have been much better. Expand

    NOTE: VERY EARLY IN THE GAME REVIEW, ABOUT 90 MINUTES PLAYED

    Already I can tell that the combat is rather clunky, and that some of the investigation mechanics are sort of half baked, as opposed to a game like Criminal Origins. Nevertheless, I believe that it is a solid game because of an interesting story and character, and manages to do something very well that isn't found in a lot of games; it immerses you. I want to find out what happens next, I don't want to put my controller down, even though the game isn't perfect. I think that its shortcomings are made up for because it only costs thirty bucks. If the trailer seems interesting and you like a linear story, I highly recommend.

    I liked the early atmosphere. I didn't really like much else. The gameplay is clunky, full of too many ideas that do not work harmoniouslyI liked the early atmosphere. I didn't really like much else. The gameplay is clunky, full of too many ideas that do not work harmoniously together. Every new location becomes a bore to navigate, with little to grab your attention. Its bloated with dialogue and storytelling, with so many unnecessary narrative sequences that i was desperate to get over with. The overarching narrative turns out to not be worth any of it.

    Its not an awful game. It functions. There is enjoyment to be had. However, its essentially a narrative experience with a mostly uninteresting narrative. Maybe my expectations were too high, but sadly this game was massively underwhelming.
