Yes, it could have been better, but Doorways fails in something so concrete I can't say I don't recommend this title. This is one of those adventure horror games from a first person view. The premise for the game could not be better: you are some kind of "mind detective" literally getting inside the criminal mind to uncover all of its secrets and to understand the way he thinks and the motives that led him to that situation. You will explore the mind of two different criminals (one for each chapter) and face some of the horrors that are hidden inside of them. This a very atmospheric game, and it builds up tension the way it should be built. The only problem (and a big one if you ask me) is that this tension is built for nothing, since there is no real horror behind this game. Once you realize that this is not like Amnesia or other horror games where you need to hide from monsters you just relax and feel safe all the way. At that point, this game becomes a walking simulator with some puzzles and a few jump scares, but no real horror in it. Anyway, story is good enough and the setting is worth it.
Doorways is a first person horror gimmick , you're in the shoes of some guy as it's not clear who you are and you're working for an organization called Doorways or utilizing a machine called Doorways, either way , you enter the minds of criminals and you experience their actions and their thoughts to solve puzzles and face horrors it sounds interesting at first glance and thought , but ends up feeling dull and not well presented. Graphically , the game isn't much of a looker , but the shadows and darkness atmosphere is one thing that is well done , with pitch dark spots and bizarre yet scary ambient noises , this is one of these things that keep you a little bit hooked to see what else it has to offer , the rest of mind exploration is just uninteresting and ends up without and good feedback. for example you explore the mind of a professor that kidnaps and tortures people with some old torture devices and tools , the level is just a forest at night time with torches scattered here and there trees are lifeless and spiky and you have a torch in your hand that you need to keep lighting in order to avoid getting caught in a dark area , if you do however you hear a scream and you start over at the beginning , and then you do some platforming on some wooden wreckage in a big space with nothing around you but the sky and clouds, then you enter a fortress with cages dangling from the ceiling where you have to activate some pressure plates or tiles in certain sequence and if you make a mistake you will be hit with spikes from below, finally you get to visit the torture basement with the torture device in it , then you need to assemble it by guess where each part goes, when done you see a cut scene where the professor is torturing someone and then the level is over. it's the least interesting way to actually execute such an interesting idea and make it mundane, even the level design does not represent in any way what you'd imagine you would experience inside a criminals mind. gameplay wise , none of the stuff the game asks you to do is new to gaming really , platforming, pushing things,fetching things and collecting hidden objects, more platforming and just some shock moments where you make a mistake making these things , it's not an overall bad game , but it's definitely a bad HORROR game.
