GSY Video PC

With its will to pay tribute to Silent Hill, Husk really got us intrigued, but the 90 minutes or so we have spent with the game have failed to convince us so far, despite its rather nice visuals.

This new horrific walking simulator manages to set a pretty good atmosphere, mainly thanks to its lighting and special effects, and though not a real looker, the game is convincing enough to be engaging at first. Sadly, its very linear structure, in which all items of interest are simply given to the player, takes away the exploration aspect we expected from a Silent Hill heir. The stealth mechanic included in the game is a letdown too, as the poorly animated enemies can be outrun in most cases - which is a relief as they can spot you in what seems to be an haphazard manner. Finding a gun does not make the game a lot more interesting and we don't really see how the next few hours will ever be able to match what the series that inspired it brought us back in the days.

Note:

We're having quite an annoying technical issue with the game. When we launch a new game, it's like performance resets and framerate falls down around 30 fps. It also happens every time you die and the game has to reload the latest checkpoint. The only workaround we have found is to apply the selected resolution again (in our case 1080p). We believe the game changes resolution on its own, forcing 4K for us (since our TV is compatible) - despite what the graphics options indicate.

It's a debut of a very small Polish indie team, but it's still a pity that the game has issue.

    MrWhite People don't read books. They'd rather listen to some dickhead talk smack about shit they haven't a clue about, despite them claiming they have an education in a certain field. Its enough to convince (3 Days ago)

    jmd749 Yes, we live in the information age, but most have lost the skill/ability of assimilating and interogating that info. That's why the small misleading sound bites on twitter/facebook is preferred. Sad (3 Days ago)
