TheNightfall reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
After I have played TheNightfall at the End, here is my Review. General: In the Game we play Victoria, a young Lady who moves into a new House and has to spend her first Night there before her first day on the job alone, as the Rest of the Family Doesn't follow until the next Day. But something is wrong, because there are numerous strange Events in the following 9 Hours. Storyline: The Story is initially unambiguous and fundamentally well considered. Even the End is, at least, clearly in Contrast to Pineview Drive. However, it has to be said that the Story takes too much of a Back seat by having too many Gimmicks that are not relevant to the actual Course of The game. In addition, the Story is only told by corresponding pieces of Paper, which you can find regularly, creating some Blanks, some of which you can't just gather together. Even the End is rather lax, because you actually expect some Kind of Twist. In My Opinion, more could have been won out about the Story. 6/10 Point Graphic: The Graphic Environment has risen sharply from Previous Titles. Only 4k Textures were used, which you can see very well on a corresponding Monitor. Everything is more detailed and sharp without missing the typical Vis-à-vis graphic sytyle. Very good! 8/10 Points sound: The Sounds, partly redeveloped, partly taken over from the Predecessors, are very distressing. They fit in well with the individual Situations, even if sometimes you would expect a Jump-scare with some dramatic Sounds. The Title Track has also succeeded very well! 9/10 Points Gameplay: TheNightfall is a Game that is fundamentally oriented towards Pineview Drive in principle. The Game is Divided into 18 chapters of 30 Minutes each, after it is saved. The Gameplay principle is Usually to walk around the Area waiting for a new Event or several to be triggered. Then you sometimes have to look for a newly spoiled note for quite a long time In order to get on in the Game, which can get quite annoying. You just wait for the Time to pass the Event and are actually just busy running around. A big Shortcoming here is the really small Game world, which is explored very quickly. The numerous Gimmicks such as Casettes, Floppy Disks, etc. are nice, but actually unnecessary and confusing. On the other Hand, it is positive to consider that the long Key Search has been deleted. Also, the Fact that Interaction with the Game world has been greatly expanded by being able to open All sorts of Drawers and Cabinets is a really interesting new Feature that, however, could take on a greater Place in the Game, rather than just being considered Pastime until the next Event and to collect Candles etc to serve. Of Course, one can now ask onset which Gameplay Concept is most like. Random walking around And at least exploring the Game world and finding Keys in Pineview Drive? Or would you prefer a closed Level Design, where you can also get to other Places like just staying in this little House? Or an Action Game With Opponents like in Resident Evil? That certainly remains a Matter Of taste. 7/10 Points Horror Factor: Very important to me at Horroplays. The Game relies on Psycho-Terror, which unfortunately is not hit except for the Soundscape. Unlike the Predecessors far too few Jump-scares, which repeat themselves very often, even in the same Places, it is difficult to get involved in the Atmosphere of the Game. What a pity! 2/10 Points Performance and Price Performance: In WQHD on medium Settings, the game ran quite smoothly with Performance between the minimum and Optimal Requirements. Significantly longer Loading Times than the Predecessor. Game relatively bug-free, but Thumbs up! The Price, on the other hand, is, in my view, set much too high. €22.99for a Game with about 6-8 Hours of Play is significantly too expensive when compared to other indie horror titles. A Price of £14.99would definitely be more of a fit. 7/10 Points Verdict: It's difficult to judge whether I can recommend the Game to others or not. There is a sharp Graphic with varied Sounds, the Game runs round, after all, has a meaningful Story in approaches. But it can't really convince me, especially with the Fact that PD and Obscuritas have really created fun and fear. Nevertheless, there are certainly many People who also like this Gameplay. I'm very much hoping for Pineview Drive-Rising Storm here and that there's a bigger Horror Factor to be found there again. Overall Rating: 39/60 Points--> Recommendation
