Top Critic Average
Brilliantly paced and palpably tense, The Medium is a psychological horror adventure that's all thriller and no filler.
Bloober Team goes back to the classics for possibly its best effort yet.
A third-person horror game that's elevated by some of the sharpest writing and acting in the genre.
Instead of high-tech thrills and survival horror chills, this disappointingly mundane thriller struggles to impress with a muddled narrative and unengaging gameplay.
The Medium tries to do a lot but never really seems to stop and see if any of it's working.
This is a horror game with more tedium than tension
The Medium starts off personal and poignant, but ends in cliché
The Medium is a terrifying but compelling exploration of duality that uses the horror of personal trauma to craft a memorable tale.
In a different reality, I could see this game being something special. And it might, like so many other horror games and movies, go on to become a cult classic. But in this realm, for me, it just doesn’t come together.
