Critic Reviews for Night Book


Steve C
6 / 10

Night Book is a good example of the kind of modern FMV game that Wales Interactive produce. It brings together an interesting story with some strong performances and a topical site of anxiety. At a run time of about 45 minutes for each playthrough this is perfect for a quick play with a glass of wine but may not feel like the best value. There's plenty of replayability though if you want to unlock all the endings, but many of them involve only slight variations of events you'll have seen before. Night Book is very much an FMV interactive experience rather than a game but it is undoubtedly a solid example of its kind. Just don't go into it expecting much in the way of gameplay.

Night Book is lost in the magnum sea of similar productions and you have plenty of titles to play before jumping on the unfortunate protagonist and her cursed book.

As much as I wanted Night Book to be good, not even FMV can salvage this otherwise lackluster experience. Despite solid acting performances from the entire cast, it isn't enough to elevate this paint-by-numbers slog to the next level. It's probably best to leave this tome on the shelf where it belongs.

The FMV acting is great, as are the production values but ultimately the story just doesn't hold up. There's simply too much repetition required to uncover everything Night Book has to offer.

The story is slight, and possessed Dad – Jim Carver from The Bill for the 30-somethings among you – is more amusing than scary. The constraints of filming during a pandemic are clear – no two people are ever in the same room at the same time – and in terms of production values it's more school play than Hollywood. But Julie Dray is a sympathetic lead and the run time is barely an hour and change so it never has an opportunity to outstay its welcome.

‎Night Book is a good interactive movie. As a horror film, I may be afraid enough or predictable, but the story works from start to finish. He knows how to hook you from the first moment. In addition, in its playable part, although it is very simple and nothing out of the world, it is effective. It does not bother, it is well integrated and the reaction times are so fair that many times we will act more by inertia than by reasonocinio.‎

Ironically, Night Book makes a better argument for replaying than ever starting it.

‎Night Book is a good choice for fans of interactive movies, is well played and is very playable. However, it is not scary and its story is very predictable.‎
