Análises

“Greater and more sinister things await us in the following episodes. I can't wait.”
http://indiegames.com/2013/01/cognition_an_erica_reed_thrill.html

“It is soaked with gloomy style, is gorgeous to look at and listen to, sets up its plot points with great precision, and takes off in the third act as it builds to a huge climax with a disquieting final shot that makes me genuinely eager to play the second episode.”
3.5/5 – Adventure Gamers

“An exciting story, an interesting main character, challenging puzzles, and a grandiose. atmosphere make for me this first episode a worthy spiritual successor of the Gabriel Knight series, which hopefully will be even better with each new episode. Besides The Walking Dead is the best for me so far (serious) Adventure game experience of the year.”

Acerca deste jogo

FBI agent Erica Reed has an uncanny talent: she can see the past and piece together how a crime unfolded. But not even this sixth sense could save her younger brother, Scott, from a brutal serial killer. Three years later, the investigation into Scott’s murder has gone cold -- but Erica’s work has only just begun.

Jump into Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, the exciting four-part series that brings Erica face to face with the deranged demons of her past. A serial killer is loose in Boston -- one who seems to be leaving deliberate clues that only Erica, with her unique post-cognitive abilities, can uncover. Is she finally on her way to solving Scott’s murder? Or, blinded by vengeance, is she falling into a trap that could cost Erica her life? And how does this new killer know her secret?

Winner of six 2013 Reader’s Choice Aggie Awards, including Game of the Year, this edition of Cognition includes everything in the original game, plus brand new director commentary for all 4 episodes and exclusive content including concept art, storyboards, outtakes and other behind-the-scenes material about the development!

Developed by Phoenix Online Studios (makers of the King’s Quest spin-off The Silver Lining), with contributions from veteran game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter) and comic book artist Romano Molenaar (Batman, X-Men, The Darkness), Cognition is a thrilling adventure that grips you and won’t let go.

A solid storyline and a very atmospheric game to be immersed in.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this playthrough, other than the parts where finding clues gets tough. Some scenes are so intense that I freaked myself out.

For context, I am long time adventure gamer.

In brief, loved this game. It had a great story and mixture of puzzles. Loved the subject matter although may be gory for some (i.e. serial killers and graphically violent scences). Several parts of the story were a bit confusing and I felt had to jump to some of our own conclusions (or interpretations); but overall was compelling and had nice twists. Puzzles were of appropriate difficulty. I got stuck on a couple, but that was my fault for not paying attention to some detail. All the necessary info was provided at some point prior to a puzzle. A couple of times was not clear what needed to be done from a game function point of view (as opposed to a puzzle), but persistence in trying out of the box thinking will help. The psion game mechanics are compelling. I strongly recommend this game if you like detective adventure stories.

I voted for this origonally on Greenlight and I'm certainly not dissappointed in the outcome!

I'm a big fan of adventure games and I enjoy crime dramas too so this was really up my alley. The characters and story are all very interesting and interwoven very well, the character Erica is very interesting with attempting to learn and control her powers of precognition, which you have to use later down the line to solve crimes, stop murders and continue this dance of death for this serial killer before someone else is killed.

I'd highly recommend this for any fan of adventure games!

Edit: Forgot to add, There is a problem when playing this game on 64bit systems so I suggest doing the same work around as mentioned on their forums here: http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?topic=15161.0

It's due to hyperthreading issue with the engine and the solution makes the game focus on just one core instead of getting confused with multiples. After I applied this fix the game ran nice and smooth with 0 crashes in it.

You play as Erica Reed, a Boston FBI agent with a deeply troubled past and some supernatural abilities, which are introduced to you throughout the first episode.

Cognition is a traditional point and click adventure game, and it doesn't add too much to the formula. When you click on something, a small radial menu shows up of things you can do with the object, and its context sensitive. You can look at it, use it or grab it, or use your currently equipped inventory item on it. The graphical inventory is on the right side of the screen, and you can not only equip an object, you can also look at it, use it, or combine several objects together.

It definitely has a very mature comic-book feel to it. The cutscenes are delivered in the standard "motion comic" style, with minimal animation - mostly to highlight the important aspects of the scene. The actual gameplay has full cel-shaded environments and characters, complete with mouth movements to accompany the voice acting. The music is also wonderfully done and definitely sets the mood for each scene. The best thing I can say about it is that it didn't get in the way, which is the point for a game like this. It highlights the atmosphere appropriately.

Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller may have some clumsy animation, some robotic faces and the occasional instance where the tech and the art don’t quite gel, but it is a hugely competent adventure game in every other regard. One that provides stimulating puzzle mechanics that make perfect sense within its world, and a compelling story that quickly gains momentum and keeps it up until it culminates in a thrilling, memorable finale. That’s categorically what you want from the genre.
