PC Review - 'Cryostasis'

WorthPlaying
12 July 2009
  • Summary: Cryostasis is a first person horror/action game where you play a meteorologist caught inside the "North Wind," an old nuclear ice-breaker, frozen in the ice many years ago. This steel beast once fought for its country, but it fell into an ice trap as did every living thing onboard.

A Chilling Adventure

  • Excerpt: Cryostasis is a game with a lot going for it, and quite a few flaws as well. Kudos has to go to Russian developer Action Forms for trying to make a unique game the likes of which American gamers have probably never experienced before.

  • Excerpt: Russian developed Cryostasis is a chilly cult masterpiece thanks to its unique story and visual style. Unfortunately, the game's technical issues and slow-paced combat are valid concerns against wide-audience approval.

  • Summary: Crysostasis: Sleep of Reason saw its initial release just this past December in its home country of Russia, and finally it has made its way here to the states. This is one game that should have stayed overseas. The atmosphere, story, setting, and game play are all severely lacking.

  • Summary: The title makes no sense, but ironically 'Reason Of Sleep' would work quite nicely…

  • Excerpt: Horror-Schocker wie Resident Evil gibt es wie Sand am Meer. Ego-Shooter werden sogar noch weitaus zahlreicher auf den Markt geworfen. Ein Spiel, das eine Mischung aus beiden Genres darstellen will, sollte also etwas ganz Besonderes bieten, um aus der Masse hervorzustechen.
  • Pros: sehr intensives Spielerlebnis dank gut eingesetzter Stilmittel, coole Effekte - im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes, anspruchsvolle Handlung, Geschichte bis zur letzten Minute spannend
  • Cons: leider gibt es so gut wie keinen Anreiz, das Spiel zweimal durchzuspielen, nur ein Schwierigkeitsgrad wählbar, Hardware-Hunger nur mit modernsten PCs zu stillen, teilweise eintönige Spielumgebung, starke Linearität lässt euch kaum Freiraum

  • Summary: "Hru Cryostasis mají na svìdomí vývojáøi ze spoleènosti Action Forms a nutno podotknout, že se jim práce na této høe opravdu povedla. Žánrovì se jedná o sci-fi akci, jejíž dìj vás pøenese do roku 1968 na Severní pól.

Review: Cryostasis

zachseinblog.de
23 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Ich habe lange überlegt wie ich diese Review beginne, dennoch soll zu allererst gesagt sein: “Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason” ist eine russische Entwicklung. Wie bei allen russischen Geschichten, sitze ich nach Abschluss einer solchen immer relativ ‘unbefriedigt’ vor dem Bildschirm bzw. Buch.
