    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.

    A really great idea for a horror game, but it simply fails to deliver. Boring gameplay, bad voice acting and a lot more.

    A truly inspired and horrific depiction of Hell, attempting to prop up a mechanically nonexistent survival/horror early prototype for a game. Even the toughest of pentacle carving black metal fans will have a hard time pretending that they actually enjoyed and ‘got’ Agony.

    Agony tries very hard to depict a sadistic and nightmarish hell and provoke the senses. In the end it fails, due to repetitive environments, excruciating stealth sections and a lack of any material worthy of provocation. Even if the censored material depicted truly intense scenes it would most probably still not be enough to overcome the numerous technical and gameplay issues.

    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.

    All shock, and no substance. The take on hell is amazing, but the underlying gameplay is frustrating.

    Keep in mind before reading review
    *The dev promised a uncut version for backer and PC.
    The promise that they announce "cancel" 1 day before

    The promise that they announce "cancel" 1 day before the game launch.*

    The game has good theme, but bad execution.
    Map design is bad, item are invisible due to lack of indication and bad item placement.
    And the running, oh the running.
    No, running away from thing that will kill you didn't make it horror game. No matter how much you bath the thing in blood and organ. When will people realize that?

    I would has give the game 3-4 for art design, but decide to give it zero for broken promise.
