Cognition Erica Reed Thiller
Loved Erica Reed, best character I've encountered yet in adventure games. Erica's supporting cast (her friends and acquaintances, I mean) was pretty awesome, too- believable personalities, felt like people you would know; couple this with the fact that the game has really superb voice acting, and it makes for a great experience. Game antagonists seemed confused, and their motives didn't make sense at times.
On the negative side, the games all had wonky animation problems, like Erica would face the wrong way while talking to someone. Also, I feel that the last two episodes should have been combined into a single one, and that would have made for a more satisfactory experience; I was expecting Episode 4 to last much longer than it did.
Great storytelling; had some gruesome imagery though, yikes. However, the puzzles were one of the best parts- the games make really good use of various tools they provide to aid in puzzle solving, very fun; especially the action puzzles from the last episode. But one mechanic, the new one from the last episode, felt underused, probably because the episode was really short.
Overall, cool game. Would play a sequel; I think the ending left itself open to one for sure, but in an entirely different setting. Others
