A Plague Tale: Innocence (PS4 / PC / XB1)

With a compelling storyline at its heart, A Plague Take: Innocence is a breath of fresh air in an almost never ending wave of multiplayer shoot-’em-ups. This single-player affair features (mostly) non-violent gameplay which is more akin to a series of puzzles that must be solved in order to progress, all in the atmospheric setting of medieval France. Are you ready for something a little different?

Gaming Heaven

  • Emotional storytelling at its finest. As the older sister of a five year old, the designers have done a sterling job of making you feel overprotective of your younger sibling.
  • With armed guards and rats around every corner, you must solve a series of puzzles to move past them, all with two simple rules ; rats are afraid of fire and guards easily distracted.
  • Graphically hard to fault, both in terms of visuals and animations.
  • The voice acting is superb, full of character and realism.

Gaming Hell

  • Bizarrely after all the effort that has gone into this game, the rats themselves look rushed and artificial.

Final Verdict

The blend of challenging puzzles and rich atmosphere blend together to make one of 2019’s most unique playing experiences. Forget all those AAA titles on the market vying for your money, this is game of the year material right here.
