Game description

FBI agent Erica Reed has an uncanny talent: she can see the past and piece together how a crime unfolded. But not even this sixth sense could save her younger brother, Scott, from a brutal serial killer. Three years later, the investigation into Scott’s murder has gone cold -- but Erica’s work has only just begun.  

Jump into Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, the exciting four-part series that brings Erica face to face with the deranged demons of her past. A serial killer is loose in Boston -- one who seems to be leaving deliberate clues that only Erica, with her unique post-cognitive abilities, can uncover. Is she finally on her way to solving Scott’s murder? Or, blinded by vengeance, is she falling into a trap that could cost Erica her life? And how does this new killer know her secret?

Developed by Phoenix Online Studios (makers of the King’s Quest spin-off The Silver Lining), with contributions from veteran game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter) and comic book artist Romano Molenaar (Batman, X-Men, The Darkness), Cognition is a thrilling adventure that grips you and won’t let go.

Exciting and dark point and click game

Cognition is a point and click game about a FBI agent, a woman called Erica Reed, which solves criminal cases at her town while trying to uncover the mystery around her brother's death. The graphics are good, there's even movies for some scenes, the characters are voiced and the plot is amazing and kind of dark, because the criminal cases are, sometimes, kind of disturbing... Anyway, it's a very good point and click adventure. However, if you gets scared easily, I wouldn't recommend to play it, because some cases are kind of macabre (not with monsters, but with horrible deaths and psicopats)

awesome adventure

this game is an adventurer's delight, easily my favourite game ever! Even the soundtrack is great. Wish there were more games like this.

A great 90s cop thriller/drama

With a unique talent to see pieces of the past, Erica Reed must try and solve a series of murders that are personally connected to her and the people around her that she loves. Through four chapters you must use your cunning and special gift to stop the killer, but will you be too late? PROS: + Excellent storyline that is set up like an episodic TV series + Dark atmosphere like a 90s thriller (Profiler, early X-Files, Millennium) + Overall very good puzzles with little frustration + Really good music/SFX/voiceover work (for the most part) + Interesting/fleshed out characters CONS: - Some animations are weird - Some pieces of the puzzle aren't obvious - Some parts of the story seem dumped on you Overall, this is a very good point-and-click adventure game. I was very surprised! I loved the whole 90s cop drama atmosphere and interaction with the characters. Over the 4 episodes you really start to feel for the characters as they descend down this path. The puzzles are well done. I didn't have an issue with a puzzle that couldn't be resolved by logic or by coming back at a later time. Well worth it if you like police adventure games!

Great adventure

Gameplay is well done. A traditional point and click interface adds a thoughtfully designed psychic angle, giving play an extra dimension. I normally find point & click games tedious but this one was fun. Agent Reed's powers develop as the game goes on and new mechanics are introduced right up to the last chapter, which keeps things fresh. There's no pixel hunting, as you can always highlight interactive items in any area. The built-in hint system has a very light touch - it was enough to get me through the game without ever consulting an external walkthrough, yet it wasn't a big enough crutch that it felt like cheating.

Nice aesthetics, a little unrefined

Interestingly presented adventure game. Its strongest part would be the artwork cinematics, along with a quite interesting storytelling and a good soundtrack. The gameplay is fairly comfortable, the riddles mix well with the overall plot and the voice acting is generally ok, if not falling short in some parts. The game's low point would definitely be the graphics: the characters' skin has a weird shine on it, while movement is unnatural and glitchy. Overall, I hesitantly recommend it, if you don't think the glitchy graphics would ruin your experience. It is a shame however, that it was not built around its strongest point which is its art style.
