    It successfully combines horror, action, survival, combat and story in a way that so few games do in this modern age. A Plague Tale: Innocence is also a reminder that the world still needs single-player story-based games, especially those that are as wonderfully beautiful and heartfelt as this one.

    The way the narrative and gameplay fit together to make Amicia and Hugo’s journey both compelling and emotional is an impressive accomplishment that put A Plague Tale up there with the best of them. If you are in the market for a somber, story-driven game, I cannot recommend A Plague Tale enough.

    A Plague Tale – Innocence is the type of game that comes around rarely in the risk adverse gaming space. Bleak and beautiful it will leave an indelible mark on any gamer willing to enter its rat-infested world.

    A Plague Tale is a narrative adventure whose true protagonists are the rats. It is set in a realistic Middle Age Europe, during the Hundred Year War, and delivers an interesting story, and some well designed puzzles. On the downside, it is short (about 10 hours long) and some mechanics feel repetitive.

    With a breathtaking atmosphere, an interesting story and a gritty realism applied to the late Medieval period, Asobo Studios offers a strong and memorable experience that overcomes its somewhat repetitive & by-the-numbers gameplay.

    A Plague Tale: Innocence is a morbid adventure. The engaging mystery is highlighted by an endearing cast of characters and their ever-growing trust in one another. Combat and puzzles rarely push back, but they make it easier to engage with the memorable narrative. Through it all, the omnipresent scourge of rats leaves a lingering impact as their shrouded forms slowly work their way through the corners of your mind and settle deeply into your bones.

    A Plague Tale: Innocence deserves respect for daring to be different, funnelling you through a bleak European backdrop that’s seldom seen. Despite some neat ideas, though, the stealth and puzzle mechanics drag, and the story can’t quite make up its mind about what it wants to be. Furthermore, while the presentation is spectacular, the project lacks polish in key areas and overstays its welcome at times.

I found out about this game by chance, this gem came out of nowhere, and what an experience it is! The story is fantastic, the gameplay, the dialogues, everything is very well put together. Also the setting really draws you in and the world exudes with art and really makes you feel the unsettling feeling of plague as you roam around the village. Kudos to the developers for this incredible game! Expand

    One of the best gaming experiences I've ever had. The story and character progression is fantastic. The overall immersion and the worldOne of the best gaming experiences I've ever had. The story and character progression is fantastic. The overall immersion and the world building is extraordinary and so is the music. Yes, the enemy AI isn't the best one, but the writing and pacing does save it from breaking the immersion.
    The puzzles aren't the hardest ones around but that is to not mess with the pacing of the story telling. And the solutions are often so well crafted and clever, making them really enjoyable.
    The visuals are stunning and perfectly crafted for what this game is.
    I never encountered any frame drops, any bugs or any issues at all.
    This game was a 10/10 experience for me.

Это великолепная игра! Отличная история, интересны геймплей, запоминающиеся персонажи. Отличное вступление где сразу тебя учат основным механикам игры, Графика на уровне ААА проектов. Кто то скажет что без русской озвучки не интересно, я скажу что на французском или на немецком языке играть интересней, ведь только так можно полностью погрузится в мир средневековой Европы во времена чумы и страшной инквизиции. Прекрасная игра! Остальное вы сами поймете когда поиграете, только есть одна маленькая проблема, При включении вертикальной синхронизации ФПС игры лочится на 38-ми. а так играть можно.

Amicia, protagonista de la obra, llevará a Hugo de la mano durante las distintas aventuras que tendrán que recorrer, enfrentándose a dos claros enemigos: la plaga (enormes agrupaciones de ratas) y la Inquisición, una agrupación que los perseguirá sin descanso para conseguir un fin malvado. La crueldad y crudeza de la historia choca con la inocencia de un Hugo que, por descontado, es lo mejor de todo la obra. Recomendadísimo, uno de esos títulos que todo el mundo debería probar. Expand
