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.

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.
  • 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...

  • Summary: Despite being woefully short and lacking some genuinely challenging puzzles, Datura is still a captivating and unique experience worth checking out.
  • Pros: The scrumptious visuals, The great use of PS Move, Superb atmosphere and score

The Shadowy Flight into the Dangerous World of a Man Who Does Not Exist

TotalPlayStation.com
8 May 2012
  • 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.

19 April 2015
  • Summary: Waar de Move echt zit te springen om een paar extreme toptitels, zo laat Plastic en Sony Santa Monica zien dat dit nog niet zo eenvoudig is. Datura blinkt uit in sfeer, originaliteit en verwondering.
  • Pros: Sfeer, Grafisch in orde met 3D, Origineel, Move besturing centraal ipv add-on, Relatief goedkoop
  • Cons: Plot ontbreekt, Niet altijd goed werkende Move controls, Niet voor iedereen, Korte speelduur, Lage herspeelwaarde

  • Excerpt: Es ist nun schon das dritte „Spiel“, das die Entwickler Plastic exklusiv für Sony abliefern. Doch ist ihr neuster Streich mehr als eine Tech-Demo oder fahren die Macher wieder die gleiche Schiene, die sie schon bei .detuned und Linger in Shadows befahren haben?
  • Pros: innovative, präzise Movesteueerung
  • Cons: kurze Spielzeit, wirrer zusammeloses Gameplay

  • 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.
