Penumbra Requiem - review

carlyle | Jan. 7, 2013 | See all carlyle's reviews »

Penumbra Requiem recycles everything you have seen in previous episodes, related graphics, sound and gameplay. There has been no change as both scenarios as special, the only pleasure we experience is the feeling of anxiety and fear fueled by dark areas, lighting and well-dosed sound that always portends something terrifying and imminent . Things have already seen and experienced, and perhaps the only positive side of the game, the rest is monotony. Turn to the various levels without a narrative link them to associate, to recover the diaries and artifacts, only the spaces created to implement the well-proven and innovative gameplay. Levels are nine and the only purpose will be to activate the portals to the next level, then turn to the level, understand what to do and how to get out, find and take the artifact and go to the next level. For fans of the series who were expecting a concrete conclusion, it is certainly a cold shower and lie in his hands a simple platform, undoubtedly very dark and mysterious, but far from the call expansion as it should be heard, only the addition of levels without a purpose.

Interesting puzzle game

The last chapter in the Penumbra series is not an horror game like Overture and Black Plague. In Requiem you start in a room where you must solve some puzzles using the particular control system that Frictional games developed to manipulate objects. If you manage to solve the puzzles in the room you can reach the following room where you can solve other puzzles. There are no monster and each level is separated from the other. The game is quite short and the story behind the game is not so interesting like in the previous chapters

A great addition to the Penumbra series

Even though Requiem is not as good as the past two games (Overture and Black Plague) it is a definite mustbuy. It keeps that charm and atmosphere of all of Frictional Games' games. The puzzles and challenges are satisfying and enjoyable. The story is really deep and interesting. It picks up where Black Plague left off, but I won't give any spoilers. I would say the only bad side of the game, is its lenght. It's about 3-5 hours, but the experience is irreplaceable. I recommend Penumbra Requiem to everyone!
