Datura Review

PlayDevil
5 July 2012
  • Summary: " Datura " could only loosely be described as a game; it is more like a piece of interactive art. It conveys a message and emotion that I as the audience had as much a part in creating as the developer. Though for the price it may not offer much in terms of longevity, the two hours it lasts are worth experience at least twice to see each of the vignettes alternate outcomes.

Datura review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Waking up in the back of an ambulance. Throwing potatoes at a pig. Taking a trip down a mine shaft and ending up on a water slide. Yes, these things are connected, at least in Datura, the latest PSN release from the surreal minds at Poland-based developer Plastic. While it feels more like an interactive thesis presentation for someone’s psychology degree than a game, Datura has a sense of foreboding and mystery that we couldn’t shake, even after its abrupt ending.
  • Pros: Being immersed in a surreal world, Solving a mystery piece by piece, The detailed sound design
  • Cons: The Move controls, The abrupt, “play me again” ending, Getting called pretentious for liking this game

  • Conclusion: You get the feeling Datura’s elusive narrative and moral ambiguity was intended to be the subject of rampant speculation. If only it were complimented by proper tactile feedback, or if the whole detached hand mechanism managed a legitimate grasp of Datura's nebulous constructs, we'd be talking more about Datura as a great game and less as an atrophied experience.

  • Conclusion: Datura isn't for everyone. It isn't even for most, but the few that really get what Plastic was going for will realize how well-done it all was -- and it was very well done. Not perfect, no, but Plastic's future looks bright.

  • Conclusion: Ist Datura ein seltsames Spiel? Definitiv. Aber genau deswegen macht es mir so unheimlich viel Spaß und begeistert durch die simple, aber trotzdem unglaublich vielschichtige Art und Weise, wie es mit uns Spielern umgeht. Es ist das Gesamtpaket, das so stark überzeugt. Datura passt nicht ins aktuelle Schema der „Größer, schneller, explosiver, hirnloser“-Titel, es regt zum Nachdenken an, welche Taten jetzt „gut“ oder „böse“ sind.

  • Summary: Het moge duidelijk zijn dat Datura een uniek puzzelspel is. De combinatie van het oplossen van puzzels, de vreemde cutscenes en een overkoepelend verhaal dat pas aan het eind enigszins duidelijk wordt: als het je ligt, dan kan je ervan genieten. Helaas werkt de besturing niet altijd mee, al is dit gedeeltelijk een kwestie van gewenning. Het grote minpunt van dit spel is dat het te kort is.
  • Pros: Unieke ervaring..
  • Cons: ..die veel te snel is afgelopen, Besturing werkt niet altijd mee
