Critics restrainedly met Layers of Fear

The first reviews of Layers of Fear appeared on the Web, a collection of remakes of the entire adventure horror series created by Bloober Team. As you can see, the assessments of critics coincide with the estimates of the previous parts, which, in the end, did not receive any revolutionary changes in the collection, although they were placed in a single narrative line.

In general, journalists welcome the use of the Unreal Engine 5 engine, which is an excellent demonstration of Layers of Fear. Almost all reviews agree that the narrative side is good, but the game systems are very boring, so that it is very difficult to feel a real fear during the game.

  • – 7.5 /10
  • Try Hard Guides – 9 /10
  • Altchar – 80 /100
  • Monstervine – 4 /5
  • Xboxera – 7.5 /10
  • Shacknews – 7 /10
  • Bazicenter – 7 /10
  • But Who Tho? – 6 /10

Some did not like the new plot added on occasion, others write that the second chapter could get more attention, but in general everyone agrees on good experience, which, however, does not much surpass what the originals proposed separately.

For example, the IGN portal noted the following:

The new Layers of Fear is a series of atmospheric and often surreal trips along the destroyed psyche of seriously exhausted creators. It has become even more attractive thanks to the Unreal Engine 5 engine, and adding a flashlight makes the gameplay more interesting, softening disappointment from meetings with pursuers, from which everyone suffered in original games. Nevertheless, screamers are often obvious, and this predictable formula bored before I reached the end of each of the main plot threads. Ultimately, Layers of Fear looks like a 13-hour crawl along a series of slightly eerie corridors, and not as a truly terrible journey through darkness.

The Poles could not cope with the Steam interface and failed to provide a one -time launch on all platforms, which can lead to negative reviews after the game is available to users of the Valve digital site.
