    Fortunately, the exquisiteness of such a raw and visceral infernal representation overshadows all the technical and game design problems. But when the gameplay becomes so insistent that it manages to break the horrible enchantment, it's trouble.

    Agony is a game I really wanted to love and visually, the game looks rather impressive, even some of the early gameplay moments feel well crafted and fresh, yet, as a whole, Agony just doesn’t hold up against other games of the genre — at best, Agony feels like a lovechild between Red Barrel’s Outlast series and id Software’s 2016 Doom reboot, and at its worst, Agony feels like a game that probably needed a few more months in the crucible before inviting us all to join it down in Hell.

    Agony is a survival horror adventure game with disturbing and grotesque visuals that sadly doesn´t match the high expectations we had on it. Most of the game mechanics are too frustrating, clunky and repetitive, but it also gives us freedom of exploration and shows a good level design. A game for the true hardcore fans of horror games.

    Agony does not quite reach the expectations we had for it. However, its ambiance and portrait of hell are quite disturbing.

    While its bold and detailed environments depict Hell in the most nightmarish ways possible, even the fantastically obscene sights and creepy sounds become mundane and dull by the end of its series of repetitious mazes, unimaginative item hunts, and weak stealth gameplay.

    A game for succubi, but not for humans.

    If Hell does exist, then it's surely the one depicted in Agony, because one can get used to pain and suffering, but these can't compete with utter and complete boredom. Madmind Studios' rushed, controversial cash-grab, is nothing more than one of the contenders for the worst release of 2018, and one of the worst survival horror games ever, full stop.

    Pour un jeu survival horror je n'ai jamais quelque chose d'aussi bien. Une vrai claque. Le jeu créé un stress chaque virage peut être un vraiPour un jeu survival horror je n'ai jamais quelque chose d'aussi bien. Une vrai claque. Le jeu créé un stress chaque virage peut être un vrai danger.Le niveau du labyrinthe est excellent. On avance en tâtonnant et une énorme partie de ce niveau est sonore. Des cris, des gens qui psalmodient, le bruit des sabots des créatures démoniaques. On est faible est on le récent. Pourtant il faut passer, résoudre les énigmes, faire le bon choix.

    Aujourd'hui le moindre jeu ne propose qu'une solution couloir avec une seul résolution.
    la tout est permis.

    Félicitations.

    Bien sur le jeu est beau une petite claque graphique.
    Juste un petit soucis pour moi avec l'animation des pnj humain qui ne fait pas 2018.
    Bon par contre les pnjs empalé de la tête au pied et qui vivent encore en hurlant de douleur....j’avoue JAIME ! GG a Madmind studio

Не вижу смысла играть в игры, где большую часть геймплея нужно идти в слепую. Expand

    Closest thing to a Hell simulator you'll ever see-- and not in a good way.
    Great idea and setting are completely ruined by monotonous,
    Closest thing to a Hell simulator you'll ever see-- and not in a good way.
    Great idea and setting are completely ruined by monotonous, boring, gameplay. You can barely see 20 feet ahead of yourself, the environments all look the same, the level design is atrocious, and there is basically no story. SKIP THIS ONE.

    Complete broken trash. It looks like trash, controls like trash, and is riddled with game-breaking bugs that will stop your game and force youComplete broken trash. It looks like trash, controls like trash, and is riddled with game-breaking bugs that will stop your game and force you to reload, losing maybe 15-30 minutes of progress at a time. These bugs are VERY frequent and easily recreatable, I have no idea how they didn't catch them in testing, if there was ever any.

    made an account just to rate this hot garbage, what an absolute disappointment.
