A game that presents you with everything you need from the start, and casually waits for you to learn its rules. It's a really refreshing time, and a pretty player friendly entry point into the roguelike/immersive sim genre. Levels are procedurally generated, but work from established tile sets that lead to familiar feeling levels; despite their randomized nature. It never feels unfair. The progression curve just feels really great. Definitely check this game out.

Recommended: While the art aesthetic that Eldritch uses is tired at best, underneath that aesthetic is a well-designed roguelike first-person shooter. With the resource management you have to do, enemy variety, and interesting lore, there's a lot to like in Eldritch. If the price point is steep to you, then wait for a sale and pick it up - if you like roguelikes you probably won't regret it.

A highly delicious and aesthetically pleasing stealth "Rogue-like" FPS mash-um-up. I'm particularly fond of good gameplay and Eldritch definitely delivers. It has character. It has atmosphere. It has giant tentacle blobs that phase through openings and chase you down until you're crying for more bullets!

On the surface it may appear rather dullishly action packed repetitive nonsense, but the simplicity and attention to detail is what makes titles like Eldritch so awesome. There's a high degree of insanity to be had in a hundred different scenarios if you are willing to reach into your creative coffers and pull out a magic rabbit.

There are times when you've out-maneuvered and out-brained a few dozen baddies and start wondering where the challenge lies only to slip on a broken tile and be man handled by a couple of living statues that certainly have nothing but sinister intentions.

You ressurect and steel yourself for another run only to realize it's even MORE difficult in deprivation of your gadgets and fancy schwahza (Props if you get the reference). How to continue but change your playstyle to suit your capabilities?

By challenging you to use your smarts in one wickedly strange environment that increases in difficulty you get a definite "edge of your seat" feeling at almost every moment.

Highly captivating in almost every way, I just can't help but feeling like I want more. Give it a larger and more persistent map, as well as multiplayer with even more scaled difficulty and a bunch of new mobs/items/spells and Eldritch would be one of the most amazing titles ever as far as I'm concerned.

Without a doubt, highly unique and worth every penny either way.

Good value, addictive and atmospheric, with lots of replay value. Would recommend for fans of roguelikes, first person adventures games, etc. Just watch out for shoggoths.

Eldritch combines a decent survival like gameplay with lovecraft inspired story. The latter contributing to the recent abundant fun oriented lovecraft derived game topics ("Chtuhlu saves the world" et.al.).

The game mechanics allow for a minimalistic yet enthralling gaming experience. The player starts in a library and loses him- or herself in different books, which signify as levels in the game. The levels offer a variety of enemies and challenging architecture.

As much as the game itself is fun the topic is entirely misplaced. Any decent reader of Lovecraft will be astonished by the lack of proper realisation of lovecraftian topics (i.e. ongoing degeneration, non-explicit creation of gothic elements to name just two). Anybody interested in the game type itself will probably not be disappointed - anybody who is on the lookout for a decent adaption of Lovecrafts literature into a videogame should just keep searching, as he or she will not find it here.

Great fun. Pretty easy on the first run-through. NG+ pushes the difficulty up. The thing I like the best about this game is the fact that your tactical choices have real impact on how you play the game. Do you use your magic and burn through your money, or do you save the money for weapons and health and forgo the magic. Very fun, lookingofrward to the rumored expansion.
