Eleusis – Review (PC)

voletic.com
1 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Eleusis is not a terrible game at all. It’s a serviceable entry into the recent pantheon of survival/horror games. What it does do right is to introduce a unique setting and attempt to integrate a survival/horror experience into a traditional adventure story – a combination which could result in something truly special if it were to strike the right balance.
  • Pros: Impressive visuals, Great tense atmosphere, Unique setting
  • Cons: Vague plot, Repetitive missions, Bad enemy AI

  • Conclusion: The very last scene of the game either teased a sequel or mocked me for having done everything in vain. I’m not certain which, but if it’s the former, I’m cautiously optimistic (if it’s the latter, it would simply be another page in the story of my life). I wouldn’t mind going back to Eleusis, but next time, I would like more of a game to go with it.

  • Excerpt: The review below is based on the original Eleusis version 1.0. What is it? Like a lot of things in modern Greece, behind the modern city of Elefsina, there is a trail of ancient history, architecture and culture. In the specific case of Elefsina, its past hides under the alternate name of Eleusis.

Eleusis

Adventure-Treff
20 March 2014
  • Summary: "Ein Horror-Spiel muss man bedingungslos ernst nehmen, wenn man sich gruseln möchte. Aber aufgrund der doch etwas schwachen Geschichte und der spielmechanischen Unzulänglichkeiten hat es Eleusis nicht geschafft, mich in seinen Bann zu ziehen. Ich habe viele schöne Ansätze gesehen und gespürt, dass sich hier jemand viel Mühe gegeben hat, aber für ein bemerkenswertes Spielerlebnis war das nicht genug.
  • Pros: Freie Bewegung und Erkundung, Grafisch insgesamt gute Präsentation, Abstellbare Gegner, Intressante Ansätze im Gameplay, Konstruierte Geschichte, Fehlende Hotspot-Suche führt zu Sucherei, Eher schwache Rätsel, Nerviger Geschicklichkeitsteil

  • Excerpt: "Etwas riecht hier aber angenehm", sagt mein Alter Ego, fügt "Es ist Minze" hinzu und bringt mich so dazu, die Pflanze anzuklicken. "Ich nehme sie mal mit." Aber natürlich: Das hätte jeder in dieser Situation gemacht.
  • Pros: düsteres weitläufiges Dorf und Umgebung, plastische alte Mauern, feine Details an Möbeln u.a., knisternde akustische Kulisse, Gegner können abgeschaltet werden
  • Cons: schablonenhafte, spannungsarme Gruselgeschichte, leere, lange Wege, spröde, einfallslose oder unsinnige „Rätsel“, mitunter kein logisches Hinleiten zur nächsten Aufgabe, nichts zum Entdecken, keine Geheimnisse, spannungsarme Verfolgungsmuster von Gegner, umständliches Hantieren im Rucksack, kein manuelles Speichern, praktisch keine Sprache, steife Animationen, komplett Englisch

  • Summary: Het is de maand waarin Halloween plaatsvindt en dat betekent een hoop games die een enge ervaring beloven. Dit blijken vaak loze woorden te zijn om gamers te lokken. Soms zit er echter een enge creatie tussen die je doet beven van angst. Eleusis belooft een ervaring met een duistere sfeer en een spannend verhaal vol verontrustende ontdekkingen. Of die woorden meer zijn dan marketingpraat, het zal mij benieuwen.
  • Pros: Vermakelijke puzzels, Sfeervolle setting
  • Cons: Extreem veel lopen en backtracking, Zwak verhaal, Geen horror

Eleusis - Recensione

Everyeye Network
11 August 2013
  • Summary: Se è vero che al giorno d'oggi non esiste genere videoludico con il quale sia semplice confrontarsi, è altrettanto esatto definire quello delle avventure horror come uno dei più difficili nei quali lasciare il segno: Eleusis ne è la dimostrazione lampante, non riuscendo ad imporre la propria struttura di gioco al di sopra di difetti come un'eccessiva semplicità degli enigmi, un affidamento a meccaniche di esplorazione ampiamente rivedibili e un backtracking invasivo e...

  • Summary: Eleusis prova a mescolare le nuove tecnologie con il concept classico delle avventure grafiche
  • Pros: Tecnicamente valido, almeno in relazione alla natura indie, Atmosfera buona e arricchita da qualche tocco di classe
  • Cons: Poca sostanza in un contenitore troppo grande, Enigmi banali e resi difficili solo dalla dispersività della formula, Backtracking eccessivo, Engine pesante

L’inquietudine del chiaro di luna

Game
8 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Traendo ispirazione da una concorrenza indie dagli spunti tanto funzionali quanto non facilmente imitabili, Eleusis si contrappone fra la tipica accezione di horror e il condizionamento psicologico del giocatore. L’obiettivo può definirsi centrato ma non in pieno: l’atmosfera cupa e tetra assicura una tensione non indifferente, soprattutto essendo coscienti di ciò che potrebbe succedere non appena ci si accinge a proseguire nel proprio cammino, ma una realizzazione...
  • Pros: Narrativa semplice ma con un intrigante alone di mistero, Atmosfera cupa e tetra davvero riuscita, Graficamente lodevole per un indie
  • Cons: Ambientazione con qualche caduta di stile, Enigmi non sempre ben congegnati, Collisioni ed altre accortezze tecniche da rifinire, Longevità non eccelsa
