Fun ideas, but gameplay not great

  • Summary: As other reviewers have noted, the atmosphere and ideas behind this game are great. However, I rate it lower because I found the gameplay to be, at times, frustrating. The puzzle and exploration aspects are fun. But in some parts of the game (notably the Requiem chapter, but others too), I found there was lots of jumping about, where if you jump at the wrong time or slip slightly on the keys you'll fall to your death and have to restart.

3 related, but different games

  • Summary: Penumbra Overture This was the best of the 3 games, but it leaves you hanging, which means you'll want to play the second one (Penumbra: Black Plague). Overture tells an interesting story. There are some creatures to avoid. There are puzzles to solve. There is a LOT of creepiness. I kept waiting for something to jump out of the shadows and go "BOO!" I enjoyed Overture the most. And if you want to stop at Overture, then I think you've made a good choice.
