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.
