Dollhouse (PS4 / PC / XB1)

A psychological horror game in a noir setting, Dollhouse takes you through a nightmare journey into the mind of a female detective suffering from amnesia. Can you recover her lost memory (bizarrely stored in film canisters) before darkness overcomes her? It is a race against the clock as you are constantly stalked by a mysterious creature and the freakiest mannequins this side of Dr Who’s Weeping Angels. Bring on the nightmares…

Gaming Heaven

  • Being a horror game, you will be pleased to know there are plenty of chills to be fond here, the mannequins themselves will be enough to keep you awake at night.

Gaming Hell

  • The gameplay is extremely repetitive, and you will find yourself repeating the same tasks on each level.
  • Controlling your character is a chore, and extremely glitchy affair. This just adds to the frustration, coupled with…   
  • …eye-straining graphics to look at. The designers have just made this too dark, and even with the brightness cranked up, you will still have trouble finding your way around the levels.
  • It is far too easy to die in this game, with each death meaning you have to restart an entire level and begin again.

Final Verdict

A missed opportunity. Dollhouse comes with some bright ideas that get lost within difficult controls system, horrible dark graphics and repetitive gameplay.
