Recenze

“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.”
85% – Adventure-Treff

O hře

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.

Lidé chcou ve hrách fantastický příběh, ale když ve hře je, tak si lidé začnou stěžovat na to že je špatná grafika, ve hře je tuny chyb, ve hře jsou špatné animace, a nevím co ještě, a na příběh si ani nevzpomenou. Jen si vzpomeňme na příběhově geniální Deadly Premonition. Hra byla rozhodně amatérská práce, animace postav se měnili jedné za druhou atp. ale fanoušky si našla z jednoho důvod - byla odlišná od všeho ostatní, a to hlavně díky skvělé práci na příběhu. Deadly Premonition měl něco co mnoho dnešním hrám schází - srdce. Ale přesuňme se k právě recenzované hře. Cognition není ani tak známá hra a tudíž je možné že ste o ní ani neslyšeli. Pokud se budeme bavit o samotné hře tak si nejspíše vzpomenete na Walking Dead od Telltale, osobně má hra nemálo společného. Osobně jsem se dostal ke hře po tom co jsem slyšel že se autoři nechali inspirovat například Heavy Rain, který jsem však nikdy nehrál takže nemohu posoudit jak moc se hra inspirovala. Musím říct, že to co jsem za těch několik hodin prožil je jedno z nejlepších herních zážitků které jsem kdy zažil. Fantastické stupňování děje ve kterém se ze začátku vše tváří jako nikde nic, a ke konci hry vám už jen neustále padá čelist z dech beroucích okamžiků. Příběh také doplňují úžasné komiksové kresby které nemají konkurenci. Kdybych Cognition zatím měl shrnout tak je příběhově naprosto na vrcholu, a představuje snad lepší příběh než v Deadly Premonition, a to už je sakra co říct. Hned k začátku můžete také slyšet fantastický soundtrack ke kterému nelze nic dodat, to musíte slyšet osobně. (Jen škoda že se neprodává na Steamu) Také mě překvapili puzzly, které sice nejsou nejlechčí, ale většinou jdou zjistit bez problému i bez použití návodu. Samotná 3D animace a zpracování není špatné, někdy vypadá opravdu fajn, ale občasné odporné textury už tak fajn nejsou, ale to se dá překousnout. Více mě vadili chyby, kterých je tu celkem dost. Často se mě stávalo že postava začla mluvit, a do toho začla klábosit druhá. Nejhorší však byla druhá kapitola, kde jsem narazil na kritický bug který jsem nikdy nevyřešil - jednalo se o začátek dialogu kdy prostě a jednoduše dialog nechtěl začít, a oficiální podpora mě moc nepomohla. (Rozehrání od znova na jiném počítači pomohlo, ale doporučuji aby si uživatelé ATI/AMD dávali značný pozor). Někde šlo také o pár komických situací, například hned v první kapitole si postavy neustále sedávali vedle křesla atd. Vzhledem k tomu že jsem vše napsal poněkud chaoticky tak to shrnu takhle: Cognition má naprosto fenomenální příběh, skvělé dialogy, nádherné komiksové cutscény, nádherný soundtrack ale poněkud zaostává po grafické stránce, a poněkud slušné množství chyb je celkem svinstvo. Takže stojí hra za skoro těch 30 eur? Suma je to slušna ale rozhodně stojí, dle mě je Cognition mnohem lepší než i neustále vychvalovaný Walking Dead od Telltale (Mimochodem, Walking Dead se mě opravdu líbil, v žádném případě to neberte že se mě Walking Dead nelíbil!) a příběhově nemá naprosto žádnou konkurenci. Avšak pokud jste nerespektující vůči chybám, a Deadly Premonition jste nedohráli kvůli chybám tak si nejsem jist jestli je Cognition úplně ta nejlepší volba. Takže to jde říct tak. Pokud chcete geniální příběh za cenu horšího vizuálu berte Cognition, jestli radši vizuál a perfektní animace postav tak berte hry od Telltale.

This game is a point & click, mystery solving game. Was not sure i was really going to enjoy it, but quickly found myself liking the game.

The voice acting is pretty good. I really liked the characters, especially the main one, which is pretty important in a game.The game is styled like a comic

I found myself getting stumped A LOT. Almost felt like I had to actually be an FBI agent to crack the case. lol. The game does no hold your hand, and what you should do next is not always obvious. The game has a tip system, but it lets those who want to figure things out on their own, do so. The cases are pretty lengthy, more so if you get stuck a lot, like me. The story has small alternate paths. They don't change the story too much, but it's nice to have the small alternate choices

Small negative is that sometimes you have to travel back and forth to the same spots several times in a row, and it gets a bit annoying. Like in the first episode I recall having to go to the antique store, then back to the station, then back to the antique store, then back to the station again.

This game definitely might be flying under a lot of people's radar. I feel it deservers a bit more reCOGNITION.

Cognition is an adult graphic adventure about lost, revenge and fate.

Story is really well done and progresses nicely without feeling forced, most puzzles are logical, all characters are complex and have motivations that you can understand, this is helped by the great voice acting.

The game has a supernatural twist, but it doesn't feel cheesy and works well in the game for the most part, allowing for some very interesting mechanics.

DIfficulty is well balanced except a couple puzzles that might require an effort, but everything is feasible and can be deducted logically, no need for weird guessings. There are a few moments where you can actually die, but it's not frustrating since the game allows for fast retrying.

All 4 episodes are quite good, but the third one is weaker because it focuses on a single location, although it's needed to move the plot further and get ready for the final of the game, so it can be forgiven and it's not bad anyway, just not as good as the other 3 episodes.

The game has a few technical bugs, like the character moving through objects, but none are gamebreaking, just a few little annoyances.

Overall I greatly enjoyed the game and highly recommend it to anyone looking for an adult graphic adventure with an interesting plot.

After playing the first two episodes of Cognition, I have a new found hope in the point-and-click adventure genre. Yes, it can get self-serious some times, but I find it is to its advantage.

Good game for detective stories fans :) As I am. You'll notice some bugs, but rather funny than annoying :) (see: the gallery) The game is not only point&click, has some action you have to take right...or die ;) Great story, great hangman's face look (scary! I still see him in my dreams), and what's the best - you feel like being the detective, inside the story, which I like most.
