Echo Night Beyond

Into Liquid Sky
29 March 2006
  • Excerpt: The Echo Night series is one that proves to fall far from the tastes of mainstream gamers. I can't say that it isn't without good reason. The first-person action (if one can call it action) sets the player into a game world where they encounter a variety of ghosts, some malevolent while others are just obstructions to be overcome. Even though the game is delivered in first person, there are no weapons to be found. Players must survive on their wits alone.
  • Pros: Some nice visual effects, Mood feels pretty dead-on, Solid adventure for those looking for a slower paced title
  • Cons: Tedious controls and pacing, Very little in the way of action, Voice acting is mediocre, at best

Echo Night: Beyond

Game Over Online
15 October 2004
  • Excerpt: Despite what you might be thinking, this isn't a survival horror game. It's got some of the trappings of one, but Echo Night: Beyond is actually a horror-themed adventure game. I usually don't like first-person adventure games. There's no particular reason, except that most of them seem to be phoned-in, unnecessarily difficult PC games. You know the type; Dreamcatcher used to publish these kinds of games all the time, like the Dracula titles that got ported to the PSOne.

Echo Night: Beyond

TotalPlayStation.com
23 August 2004
  • Excerpt: When it comes to horror, things seem to have fallen into two major categories: the in-your-face, hyper-gore blood fests and the leave-the-scary-bits-up-to-your-imagination, which for most is far, far scarier. This holds true for stuff like movies (we submit be out there. It's not so much the random make-you-jump moments (though there are certainly those), it's the stuff that's just beyond your view, that's obscured by inky blackness or enveloped in fog.

Echo Night: Beyond

Gamecell

  • Conclusion: Overall I don’t think this is quite worth your hard-earned, as the survival horror genre is bursting with very high quality titles that are far better than this short and ultimately shallow experience. It’s perhaps worth a rent for a couple of nights if you simply have to play every survival horror game out there, but other than that I’d let this one pass you by.
  • Pros: Generally good atmosphere, Interesting story in places
  • Cons: Gameplay soon gets repetitive and boring, Not very scary for a survival horror title

Echo Night Beyond

Blokes Only

  • Summary: Echo Night Beyond, wierd name that doesn't really make any sense what so ever, the kind of name you completely forget when you are trying to tell your mates about it! We hadn't heard about this one being released and to be honest were a little reluctant to try it out as it look a wee bit scary!

  • Conclusion: Echo Night Beyond est un petit jeu sans prétention. Il faut cependant se laisser plonger dedans, ce qui est difficile malgré les défauts, les graphismes et la répétitivité du gameplay qui, en plus de ça, est lent. Si l’univers vous tente, foncez et profitez-en, le jeu est vendu neuf à 20€ ! Certainement un manque d’ambition, mais c’est tellement rare pour être souligné.
  • Pros: Le prix : 20 euros !, L'univers proposé
  • Cons: Pas accrocheur, Répétitif, Un peu mou

  • Excerpt: Habiter sur la Lune, effectuer des voyages vers cet astre depuis longtemps apprivoisé n'était pourtant plus problématique depuis des années entières. Pourquoi dois-je être le seul survivant ? Je suis le seul à connaître la vérité sur cette station, sur les évènements s'étant déroulés immédiatement après le crash. Peut-être qu'il me faut être le témoin de leur résurgence, le bras vivant de leur volonté de quitter ces lieux.

  • Conclusion: Malgré un gameplay classique et des lourdeurs, Echo Night Beyond se révèle plutôt être une bonne surprise. Très immersif, ce jeu vous fera apprécier d’autant plus la lumière du soleil que vous ne la reverrez plus une fois dans l’aventure. Proposée à moins de vingt euros, la peur n’a jamais été aussi accessible.
