“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

Über das Spiel

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.

Bedrückend dichte und sehr spannend erzählte Serienmörder Geschichte mit einem facettenreichen Adventure Gameplay. Wunderbar gezeichnete Hintergründe, ein sehr schöner und düsterer Soundtrack und grandiose englische Sprecher mit hervorragenden Dialogen. Die Rätsel sind immer logisch, es gibt einige etwas härtere Nüsse, jedoch kommt man eigentlich immer weiter.

Einzige Negativpunkte sind gelegentliche Bugs und für mich die Polygon Charaktere. Mir hätte es deutlich besser gefallen wenn diese auch gezeichnet gewesen wären da die 3D Modelle erstens nicht sonderlich gut aussehen und zweitens sich schon vom grandiosen Hintergrund doch abheben und leider nicht so gut integriert wirken.

Eine absolute Adventure Perle in 4 Episoden und einer ordentlichen Spieldauer. Ein must-have für Adventure Freunde. 9/10

Enttäuschend.
Die angeblich "erwachsene" Storyline ist unnötig brutal und untergräbt sich selbst mit unglaubwürdigen Charakteren, vorweg Erica Reed, der Hauptfigur, die sich weniger wie ein professioneller FBI-Agent verhält und mehr wie ein trotziges kleines Kind.
Da hilft es nicht, dass das Spiel ständig darauf besteht, seine auf Distanz recht hübschen Schauplätze und Figuren alle paar Augenblicke mit hässlichen Nahaufnahmen und hakeligen Animationen erst recht ins Lächerliche zu rücken.
Dazu noch Rätsel von schwankender Qualität, seltsame Quizfragenmomente, die keinerlei Effekt haben (ernsthaft? Meine Vorgesetzte, die mich vor ein paar Sekunden noch öffentlich und fast unbegründet angebrüllt hat, fragt mich Details zum aktuell untersuchten Mord und ich kann absichtlich völlig falsch antworten? Und es hat keinerlei Konsequenz?) und regelmäßiges Backtracking und schon haben wir ein Adventure, das es nicht wert ist, gespielt zu werden.
Schade drum.

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.

Awesome story, great art style, great sound, music, and I didn't notice any major bugs. The animations could use a little work, but other than that, I'd say it's an A+ title. This is one of the few episodic adventure games that I could actually sit down and play through both of the first two episodes in a single sitting, AND still want more. These episodes aren't really that short, either.
