Review: Shattered Haven

Everyday Gamers
25 April 2013
  • Excerpt: We’ve seen a glut of zombie games, and I’d argue that the runaway success of Telltale’s The Walking Dead is only going to further open the door for more.  Arcen Games took some interesting concepts and used them to bring zombies to life in Shattered Haven .
  • Pros: Branching storylines and multiple endings, Innovative Gameplay, Challenging Puzzles
  • Cons: Clunky combat, Repetition can be daunting

  • Summary: Shattered Haven is a well-meaning game with crippling communication issues. At times, it underestimates you, offering blatant written solutions to its environmental puzzles. These moments leave your brain tightly wound and ready to solve problems if only it were given the chance.
  • Pros: Good variety of tools and weapons to use, Some levels require strategic planning
  • Cons: Most levels are similar and bland, Game too often solves its own puzzles on your behalf, Can be tough to find your next challenge

  • Conclusion: Overall, Shattered Haven is a decent game for its low price. It features a standard narrative with a few twists and turns to keep things interesting. What it lacks in visual excellence, it makes up for with its fantastic soundtrack.

Shattered Haven Review | Happy FamilieZ

  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Shattered Haven is a refreshingly unique take on puzzles and zombie-themed survival horror, but never quite manages to make the most of either side of its split personality. An acquired taste, then, but one that rewards logical thinking and patience with a bevy of content.
  • Pros: Effective environmental puzzling, Plenty of levels, upgrades and surprisingly compelling storyline, Can be genuinely creepy, masterful soundtrack
  • Cons: Erratic challenge curve with some stupidly easy and obnoxiously obtuse solutions, Businesslike utilitarian structure makes the story, world and horror difficult to invest in, Frequently fails to sustain tension and atmosphere
