Doorways: The Underworld was absolutely incredible. Compare to Chapter 1 & 2, Chapter 3 was longer, chasers were more thoughtful, puzzles were harder, ambiance was deeper and more terrifying and control mechanics were absolutely amazing (That Flashback was just whow and sometimes really scary!).

Only thing what was negative for me was that chasers such as The Wheeler and others. When they were still attacking you - After a while it stoped being scary - It would be much interesting if they would have more random abilities... Other than that - THUMBS UP!

Rating 11/10

The Underworld drastically improves upon the atmosphere of the first episodes, but the setting doesn't do the title justice. It just seems very uninspired as you spend a lot of times in caves, sewers and some kind of lab. That in itself wouldn't be a problem if the gameplay was good, but it really overstays its welcome.
The first episodes were extremely short, but somewhat entertaining. The Underworld, on the other hand, recycles exactly the same kind of sequence four times in a row before you reach the end, which is just annoying. The same thing happens somewhere at the beginning, where the same kind of riddle appears twice in a row, which is completely uneccessary.

It's really sad, since the beginning seemed promising. But the atmosphere suffers from too much repetition.
In the end, I wouldn't rate it higher or lower than the first episodes. It's better in some regards, but worse in others. Might be nice for horror-fans, but could have been better.

I really hope the final episode delivers a tighter, but scarier experience.

If you're a fan of atmospheric horror, you'll be a fan of this. If you were a fan of the first two chapters of Doorways, prepare to be surprised...sorta.

From the offset it's got the same atmosphere, the same tension running throughout that made the first chapters stand out. Alongside this it has more traditional horror moments, putting this game somewhere between Chapter Two and Amnesia: Dark Descent in terms of play. Throw in some slightly more natural, less force-scripted, dialogue from Thomas Foster (that's YOU) and you're onto a winner.

But, the game does take a turn for the worst in the puzzle repetition. While the first real set of puzzles are basically split in two and repeated, it's forgiveable as the experience is new for the game (you'll know what I mean when you play it) and tense throughout. It's a constant threat, or it feels like it. But the second puzzle feels more lax and easier - just repetition without the fearful tension to make it ignorable.
Sadly this isn't just a one-off. I've not completely finished the story yet (couldn't find a certain something...), but what I assume to be the final puzzle/area is another case of repetition. I personally found this one the worst, as it had no tension and became a total grind of finding things and trying to figure out what to do with very little actual indication. I spent 50 minutes solid running around this bit pointlessly...without revealing too much, except puzzle initials, I hated the X-R bit.

But still, it's a solid game and so far it stands up. The price is arguably a bit steep, I completely agree, but this game is still damn good. It's enjoyable and it has a good share of spooks and jumps. I do not regret my choice of buying this.


If you want to look for yourself, here's a playthrough of the first part of the chapter with more following imminently.

It started out pretty awesome in terms of atmosphere and it actually kept it's great atmosphere throughout the whole game.
After the first sewer part I was like ''good, this is finally over'' since I'm not a big fan of all the running and searching but since I expected it to be only once I was okay with it. But then later a bigger sewer with a similair objective, which I found quite boring to complete twice.
Then again the atmosphere was great, I was constantly alert for things to happen which is a good thing.
I liked the Lab also, it was creepy and I didn't mind looking for the X-rays (which took me a long time because I couldn't find the burner to get the frozen key out of the jar).
I was really impressed by the game so far untill... the ''Maze''.
Pros: Only one really, it was pretty terrifying once you started using the flashbacks.
Cons: Too much running, too much searching, all corridors looked exactly the same. Way too repetitive.
After completing this long sequence I did like the part where you got chased and had to push the switches really fast in order to not get killed, that was definitely adrenaline pumping.

For the money it's right now, could have been easily €5,00 to be honest but I don't really mind.

Conclusion: good game overall but can definitely be improved in terms of gameplay in future chapters/projects.
If you're a fan of horror games then I will surely recommend this because it is a great game apart from the things mentioned above.
