Critic Reviews for Alfred Hitchcock - Vertigo

Alfred Hitchcock Vertigo may get a ball at first, but if you persevere in the most tedious the story will end up catching you. It's a reimagining of the 1958 classic, with all-new characters and plots. His connection to Hitchcock is sometimes caught by the hair, but he has a personality of his own and a story that deserves to be told.

After a thrilling opening, Alfred Hitchcock Vertigo descends into utter farce. This awkward attempt at a narrative adventure is hampered by ridiculously long loading times, terrible animation, and awkward vocal performances. Give this one a wide birth and just go watch the film instead.

A narratively well-constructed thriller, which helps us to forgive its shortcomings when it comes to gameplay.

Alfred Hitchcock Vertigo has some of the funniest voice acting in any game I've played this year, but unfortunately that wasn't the intent.

Whether it ineffectively subverts or simply misunderstands Hitchcock's body of work, this video game adaptation does the director a disservice

Vertigo's main problem, probably, it'is his ambition. When you choose such a cumbersome source of inspiration, the risk of ending up crushed by it is real. The Pendulo game wisely chooses not to retrace the path traced by Hitchcock, but to borrow the main theme. Unfortunately, however, it manages to keep the interest high only in the initial stages, then a under-the-bar acting and questionable narrative choices prevail over originality. You could appreciate the attempt, not so much the outcoming.

Alfred Hitchcock: Vertigo weaves a wonderful mystery that is full of surprises. The direction and audio pay homage to its namesake and will please fans of the source material. It is disappointing that your choices have little to no impact on the story, however, this can be overlooked due to the lovingly crafted tale that will keep you gripped throughout.

Alfred Hitchcock - Vertigo isn't a bad interactive story, I'd even recommend the story, it misses the mark on too much for me to not offer some caution.
