Об этой игре

"BlackSoul: Extended Edition" is a third person adventure game with an intriguing story set in England in 1972: people have been turned into psychotic killers by an unknown infection and you must try to help Ava and Sean survive in the quarantined area and find out the truth. You won't spend all your time on a killing spree, but you'll need to solve many puzzles which will challenge you.

Forget any government research labs in which they're working on some kind of ultimate weapon; instead think of something much sadder and crueler...and even if the story is not based on truth, we'll tell you about some events that really happened in the mid century.

Сделали бы нормальную камеру, запилили бы управление на геймпаде, или хотя бы сделали нормальное для клавомыши и убрали бы загрузки между каждой комнатой(или сделали бы хотя бы как это было в ранних резидентах) и игра вполне могла бы проконать у поклонников ранних РЕ и СХ и возможно даже стать культовой в определенных кругах, а так не, спс.

A waste of money.

When I loaded the game, I found the writing was almost impossible to read as the text size was tiny and the letters were kind of muddled. I started it up and got to the house wherupon I managed to solve an astronomy puzzle. I then kept getting killed by zombies as I had no weapon and couldn't find one, despite finding ammo.
Gave up as I couldn't get into it and couldn't read the text. Yuk!

I really wanted to like BlackSoul: Extended Edition because it's an old-school survival horror that pays homage to the classics, such as Resident Evil, Silent Hill and Alone in the Dark, but I just can't due to the large amount of bugs, glitches, loading screens and camera issues.

The first problem I noticed with the game was the horrendous "Cinematographic" camera which sometimes aims at the ground for some reason, but thankfully, you can choose the far better tracking camera which helps a lot when you're navigating through dark areas. Loading screens are a pain the backside too because they're everywhere, even you're about to enter a small room. However, the developers will be removing most of them in a future update (if that will ever happen).

One of the main problems that I had with BlackSoul: Extended Edition is that I was defenseless. The first weapon that I picked up instantly vanished from my inventory, so I had no choice but to run from one room to another while avoiding zombies who just so happen to be standing on paths that I need to take. As soon as I died, I quit the game and uninstalled it.

Right now, I can't recommend this game to anyone, not even those who enjoy the classic survivial horror games of the 90s. If the main issues that I mentioned in this review are solved in a future patch, then I will consider playing this game again and hopefully give it a positive review.

An incomplete game that was probably still going to be bad once it was "finished." I can forgive the weak controls and budget graphics, but the camera work is a travesty. There is no way to get any sense of where you are. Apparently, the developers said 8 months ago fixes were coming. I think we can assume that's not happening. Don't buy this game, I'm relieved I got it in a bundle.

This game has the same movements and scare factors as the original Resident Evil.
The characters and storyline is extremely boring.
Couldn't find any weapons to use, no idea how to fight zombies, wouldn't bother.

Ммммм.... Покажите мне тех разработчиков и издателей, которые сделали и выпустили эту игру. Такой хоррор не смогли нормально довести до ума. Баг на баге, тормоз на тормозе. Кривое все, что можно. На таком железе и так кончено працует. А ведь могло бы получится на подобии Alone in the dark и Resident Evil. А вышло...- шляпа. Не смогли до блеска довести, а жаль. Играл бы с удовольствием, но увы. Печаль да и только. Прежде чем выпускать данную игру в стиме, нужно было бы самому Гейбу проверить, что за ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ка недоделаная поступает в продажу. И таг фекалия хватает в сервисе, жаль людей, потративших на сие творение денег, которые хотели окунутьмя в мрачный и до жути содрагающий нервные клетки мир и атмосферу. Ёпт твою бабушку. Жаль, жаль, а играл бы с большим удовольствием. Разочарован в стиме за то, что сюда попадают такие недоделки. Забрасываю на дальнюю при дальнюю полку....

я получил эту игру купив рандом platinum ключ за 40 рублей (никогда больше не поведусь на эту ♥♥♥♥♥♥ню т.к. купил я их несколько и на них похожий мусор) и был крайне разочарован этой хренью , игра предствавляет из себя квест/псевдохоррор про зомби с убогой боевкой , главные герои сильно похожи на Виктора Цоя , управление крайне неудобное. что касается головоломок , нихрена не понятно , между головоломками и подсказками нет никакой связи (например кто мне объяснит связь между сейфом у которого 4 замка и скандинавскими рунами на стенке , не , серьезно?) , про "замечательную" cinematic camera я вобще молчу. этот мусор не стоит своих денег , да и впринципе нормальный человек даже вглянув на скрины поймет , что это уг нельзя покупать. НИКОГДА НЕ ПОКУПАЙТЕ РАНДОМ КЛЮЧИ .

Let me get this out of the way: I wouldn't define BlackSoul: Extended Edition as a good game. It's got too many problems with it for me to say that. And honestly, the only people who are going to enjoy it are those that liked B-Tier horror games in the late 90s and early 2000s, games like Deep Fear or Blue Stinger or Kuon. However, despite all of its problems, I did end up enjoying the game, and it does get better as it goes along.

BlackSoul: Extended Edition is an old-school styled survival-horror game, where you utilize limited supplies, puzzles, and clunky tank controls to make your way through several locations. The story is that you're a brother going to a nearby forest to rescue your sister... You play as both through the course of the game. However, honestly speaking, the story hardly has any presence, and the ending is disappointing. But I did enjoy the notes that you occasionally pick up in the game. They were interesting enough, and honestly most of the game's story is told through them.

Audio-wise, it's mostly good. The music deserves particular mention, as it's all quite good and very horror-sounding, and adds a lot to the game experience. Audio isn't bad, and some of the ambiance is legitimately creepy, but some sounds, like the sounds the zombies make, get way too familiar and aren't particularly fantastic. And the voicing is god awful, but thankfully there's only like four spoken lines of dialogue in the whole game.

Graphics actually aren't too shabby for a small budget indie effort. Some good lighting effects, interesting designed rooms, and good art direction. A few places managed to visually strike with me. However, some areas look far better than others, the animations in the game are wonky, and some textures (especially outside) are notably very low quality.

The gameplay is rather simple. Your character moves like a tank, find key items, solve puzzles, and make progress to the next location. Enemies blockade your way, and should either be taken out or avoided. You have limited ammo and healing items, so making decisions about your inventory is crucial. One feature here to note is that if an enemy manages to grab and gnaw on you, you get poisoned, which slowly drains your health. You have to find and use antidotes to heal poison, but they're limited, so sometimes its better to stick with being poisoned as you may very well quickly run into and get poisoned again by another enemy.

On that note, there's only three types of enemies in this game; Slow-stumbling zombies, speed-walking Zombies, and sprinting zombies. So basically, there's only zombies in this game. The speed of the zombie is random from zombie to zombie, but notably different zombie models take a different number of hits, which is always the same with that particular zombie model no matter what speed they move at. This limited enemy variety leaves definitely things to be desired, but also ultimately doesn't take too much from the game, as there's a larger focus on puzzles and exploration, which thankfully there is some good variety on.

The game is not short actually, it should take someone 10-16 hours to complete it the first time. The game has eight main locations, and it should be noted that they get better as the game progresses (the later areas I found a lot more enjoyable and interesting than the first few). The ultimate trial in the game comes from the second main location, The Graveyard. This location drags on, has a lot of backtracking, and honestly is probably the worst location in the game. But it's after this point the game also starts to get a lot better after the fact.

The puzzles are varied and fun, ranging from astronomical puzzles, riddle puzzles, slide tile puzzles, visual puzzles, memory puzzles, and more. The harder puzzles also have a 'solve it' option if you get stuck on them. However, a few puzzles were lifted directly out of old horror games and just altered around a bit, the most notable one being a clone of the Piano Puzzle from Silent Hill 1.

There's a few clone elements here actually. The game has a few scares and a few of them are effective, but a few were carbon-copied from Resident Evil and Silent Hill.

And this is all ignoring the game's biggest problem; it's performance. The developers chose a very old engine to make the game, and it has a lot of problems. You have to manually resize the window. The game crashes every so often. While I had no issues running it, some people have to overcome hurdles just to make it work. A lot of this is on the engine the developers chose, which pre-dates even the Source Engine, but why the developers chose this engine and rolled with it when it has so many problems especially on modern machines is beyond me.

And generally speaking I wouldn't call this a good game, or a game for everyone to experience. Honestly, if you do not have severe love for the genre, you should probably pass. There are far better horror games, and this game's problems can wear thin if you're not patient. The game gets better as it goes along, but it's nowhere near the quality of, say, Resident Evil or Silent Hill.

But as a genre enthusiast I actually did enjoy my time with it. I'm a gamer that has played a lot of horror games from all different eras of the genre. The good atmosphere and scares in places, music, puzzles, and interesting environments later in was enough for me. I wouldn't recommend it if you don't really love the genre or lack patience, but there are some interesting ideas and moments here for fans of the genre, and while it lacks elements it really shouldn't (this game would of honestly been so much better with a better story and enemy selection), it did keep enough going for me to want to keep going.

Difficult, flawed, and only really for genre enthusiasts with patience and acceptance for flaws, the game isn't a hidden gem, but rather a mixed bag of good and bad which managed to keep me interested during its 10-16 hour campaign. It's really not for everyone, and it's not what I would call a good game, but it was interesting to see a raw low-budget modern indie take on the genre with clearly bigger ambitions and heart from people who loved the genre, but missed a few notes of what makes it what it is, but tackle other areas fairly well.

I cant even launch this game without it crashing. After some time I decided I would reinstall it and not to my surprise absolutely nothing has been done. So on top of the all the bad reviews it also doesnt even start. The developers obviously dont care enough to fix the broken mess that this game is. Not to mention the rediculous resolutions they have to offer that no one even uses. If there was at least some effort being shown on the devs part I wouldnt have such an issue with this game. Stay away from this game at all costs.

Nope. I can't do it. Been punishing myself lately by installing and forcing myself to play through garbage bundle games as a way to teach myself a lesson while trimming down the back log. GAMES AS PUNISHMENT. YOUNG MAN YOU EAT YOUR BRUSSELSPROUTS RIGHT NOW. Not this game though. Congrats. Controls worse than a car with no steering wheel with graphics worse than Zork. Eat eight sh|ts.

I'm 32 years old, I grew up on Commadore 64 and NES. I know games, in fact I'd call them an obsession. Probably an unhealthy one. In all of my years I have never seen something like this. This game is utter trash, a game devoid of explaination and worth. It dumps you into a world with no context and meaning. It opens in an office, then in mere minutes you are whisked away to another nameless character lost in a forest - I assume its the first characters sister? I ended this game with 15 minutes of gameplay, I honestly dont think this game is salvageable as it seems the developers have been trying to fix it for a long time.

Do not buy.

if you can stomach a low budget survival horror game that harks back to older titles like silent hill or resident evil, then you're in for a weird and hellish trip.

Из описания:
Blacksoul : Extended Edition - это хоррор сурвайвал с интригующей историей, действие которого происходит, а Англии 1972г. Вы должны помочь выжить Шону и Аве среди людей зараженных психотическим вирусом неизвестного происхождения.
Так же нам обещают: 2 режима игры, интригующий сюжет (истории из дневников), выбор главного героя (Ава или Шон), различные виды оружия, разные типы зомбарей и много загадок.
Ну а теперь то что я увидел в игре. Игра напомнила серию игр сайлент хилл. Что делать я толком не понял. тк все на английском, а из того что понял и увидел сделал следующий вывод:
Игра на любителя. Сюжета я не понял тк поиграл 10 минут, а потом мой ноутбук ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ от нагрузки этой чудо игры и вырубился от перегрева. Графон - ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, управление - ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥о, боевка - ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, звук - ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ (тк за 10 минут заметил косяки со звуковым сопровождением). Игра не оптимизирована никак. Если бы мой ноут не ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ от таких чудо нагрузок я бы поиграл подольше и сказал бы еще пару слов о сюжете, который меня собственно и заинтересовал.
