Winter Voices - Review @ PC Advisor

by Dhruin, 2011-01-28 20:52:19

The indie episodic game Winter Voices has been reviewed at PC Advisor, with a score of 3/5:

But there’s a problem, and unfortunately it’s a fairly enormous one: Winter Voices simply isn’t that much fun to play. When you’re free to roam the frost-bitten landscape, meeting its residents and absorbing the wonderful music and deliciously overwrought dialogue, Winter Voices is a bewitching experience. But when the combat starts the cracks really begin to show. 

In terms of execution, the skill animations are agonisingly slow, making even the earliest encounters feel unnecessarily protracted. This isn’t helped by the lack of attention paid to educating the player in the gameplay’s intricacies. Even as you’re being charmed by Winter Voices’ presentation and quirks, there’s a nagging feeling that you’re flying blind, and sure enough, as the battles become more complex and challenging a handful of deaths is all but necessary to figure out exactly what you’re supposed to be doing.
