Call of Cthulhu review

The Good:
  • True to Lovecraft’s vision of cosmic horror
  • Fascinating story with a wealth of defined characters
  • Variety of gameplay and set pieces keep the game feeling fresh
  • Convincingly emotive voice acting
  • Multiple horrific endings
The Bad:
  • Not as open-ended as the game suggests early on
  • Puzzles are simple and few
  • Poor character animations mar the otherwise engrossing presentation

Our Verdict:

Horror fans, heed the Call of Cthulhu and plunge yourself into an expertly produced Lovecraftian mystery in a finely paced, hybridized adventure/RPG package that, while mostly linear, delivers more depth than its contemporary genre rivals.
