    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.

    An impressively unique stealth adventure which mixes a gothic horror atmosphere with a touching tale of two siblings surviving against the odds.

    Powerfully ghoulish depictions of the plague and rats aside, Innocence is ultimately an emotive story of resilience against harrowing odds.

    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

Studios making original, unique single player games are too rare in 2019 and we should all be thankful and encouraging when something this gorgeous and thoughtful is released. From somebody who doesn't generally love linear games, all I can say is "This game is as perfect as it set out to be." I love it so much. Expand

    I don't want to talk much about this game because i want everyone to enjoy it and not be spoiled of the many breathtaking moments in thisI don't want to talk much about this game because i want everyone to enjoy it and not be spoiled of the many breathtaking moments in this game. A Horror game with heavy focus on stealth?! well sign me up!
    This game fills the void in my heart that the disappointing, low quality AAA games has left me with.
    Its a very beautiful looking game with.. hm not much focus on combat so the boss fight seems a bit funny but hey, it can be forgiven. The level designs are brilliant and the rats!! oh my god! are insane. I was thinking about Prince of Persia level of tension in some chase sequence which is really good!
    I suggest each an everyone of you reading this review to buy this game and try. Its an adventure worth it all.

    what a masterpiece, really. I wasnt expecting all that from this game. Hope it became a serie (and it will, i`m sure), there`s just some things they need to change so it become a perfect 10/10 game, like better enemy (and ally) AI, and different ways to pass each puzzle, but just minor things
