The Shore Critic Reviews

The Shore is short and has some truly questionable design choices, but its strong visuals and unsettling atmosphere will possibly make it worth a look for horror fans who don't mind being annoyed.

The Shore may be rough around the edges in a number of departments, including the quality of vocal performances, and a story that just sort of ends without resolution. The game is so powerful a visual and atmospheric experience, though, that the flaws are worth overlooking. Given the way it absolutely nails its striking depiction of the Cthulhu Mythos, The Shore is recommended, especially for Lovecraftian horror fans. It’s a dark indie pearl worth a five-hour dive.

While The Shore is visually impressive, that's almost the only thing is has going for it. Not even hardcore Cthulhu fans will find fun here.

The Shore may not stand out from the "norm" of indie adventures, but it manages in its own way to tell its story in a successful atmosphere.
