A Plague Tale: Innocence review
by Trae Blain

The story is fantastic and I do like a good stealth game. The stealth mechanics are good with only a few rough edges that were acceptable to play with. The game does have a gigantic difficulty spike at the end, which does spur the overall experience. Worth playing.

This game is simple and modest. The graphics aren't crazy like RDR2, nor the gameplay immersive like Witcher, the effects aren't competing with Tomb raider either. No, this game isn't and does not pretend to be a AAA title. Which is what makes it quite good. Amicia and Hugo, the siblings are protagonists who go through a rough start amidst a plague apocalypse. The rest of the game is centred around the two saving the world and their own families with the help of some friends.
The good parts are the choice of weapons and upgrade path, pleasing sound and music, difficulty neither too high nor childish, the lights just appropriate for such a game themed around darkness. The length is also around 12 hours which is right for the genre.
What could've been improved though are the open-world interactions which are almost non-existent. You have to walk the chosen path only which reveals before you as you go. The other thing is that the gifts and findings don't seem to add any value. Finally, the post-ending scenes seemed completely useless and out of place.
But whatever, this game sure deserves some credit.
Really good story and plot. All the chapters were interesting and every chapter offered some surprise and emotion level experience. Only Minus is maybe that the side collectibles didn't add any value to game and I only found 10-15% of them.
great writing, great gameplay, good graphics and lighting effects. Dark and grim and gloomy. The final fight feels out of place though.
Incredible world, great graphics, awesome PS5 enhancements, awesome story, and absolute trash of gameplay. 

Stupidest puzzles, everything is slow as molasses, and sneaking is excruciating.

Popular Review: "A Plague Tale: Innocence is a superb stealth adventure with excellent gameplay, gorgeous presentation, and a fantastic story that shows how the worst of what the world can throw at humanity can bring out the worst of it."

My Review: It's a nice game to scratch your stealth action itch. The plot is surprisingly engaging, the acting is good, the music is amazing. Some craft able upgrade options are dubious, and could have been more fleshed out, but maxing out all upgrades will require some planning and thorough exploration of every nook and cranny.

Gamepass.

I really enjoyed my first few hours with this but I got tired of fighting torches and slowly walking through rats fairly quickly.

Great game which made good use of its mechanics and the limitations of the characters.

A harrowing, oppressive setting lifted up by the bonds made during a tough journey.

I really enjoyed playing this and the final chapters were so intense I couldn't put it down! The final fight was frustrating though and the culmination a bit... Odd. But that doesn't take away from the enjoyable journey getting there.
