Call of Cthulhu the video game is a truly bafflingly bad game; this game is so bad I'm confused as to why it has a 4 star rating when a 1 star is what it deserves. The worst part is that I'm not exaggerating! I was very excited for this game, I love lovecraftian horror and detective games and I was so excited I spent a whole day playing it...which is to say it took me less than a day to play it in its entirety. The graphics are unrefined, it looks like it came out in 2009 not 2018, the voice acting and character model movements are awkward and hard to watch, the basic controls are very glitchy and awkward, and the overall story is okay but leaves much to be desired.
There is a scene in which the main character is being choked by the villain and I kid you not, it takes more than 6 whole minutes to get through and all the while the character is supposed to be choking the two are having a very awkward "antag explains motive behind evilness" back and forth that's hard to watch. There's also another scene where a character is pointing a gun at you in a cutscene and it's embarrassing because all chambers of the gun are seen to be empty, anyone with a basic understanding of revolvers can see it.
This game should be $4 with a money back guarantee.
