Scorn is a unique title that somehow manages to be frustrating, fascinating and gruesome at the same time.

Scorn makes up for its mechanical deficiencies with its wonderful design. Whether that will be enough for you to enjoy is your judgment call.

Scorn is a beautiful game that feels bad and at times even challenging. The philosophy of figure it out is clearly noticeable. This makes Scorn frustrating at times, despite the short running time of the game. Scorn is a fun game to pick up between all those AAA games.

Not without its flaws, but still a superbly atmospheric adventure of horror and discovery.

Ebb Software's rigid focus will immediately put off some (for fair reasons), but also earn the respect of horror fans who can stomach this grotesque world.

Scorn isn't the typical horror experience you would expect. The world is full of symbols and themes with many philosophical and social interpretations presented to the player in a gory journey. It won't be to everyone's liking.

Give Scorn a chance if you feel like you can enjoy this game as an experience, rather than a strictly gameplay-focused project. Otherwise some questionable design choices and short length will most likely just bore you to death.

Scorn is a horror/adventure game filled with grotesque depictions of rot, gore and terror. It instills a sense of foreboding dread extremely well with its abstruse, minimal storytelling. This isn’t a game for the faint of heart or stomach, though.

Scorn it's a f***ing ugly game. And at the same time, it's really f***ing beautiful. Maybe one of a kind.

Anyone who enjoys the kind of games that Cyberdreams used to make will adore Scorn; bleak and surreal puzzle-driven adventure games that treat the player like an adult. It may cost a bit much (if you don’t have Game Pass), but it is the kind of game that stays with you, long after you play it.

Despite a beautiful artistic design, Scorn is a tormenting journey to a strange world where there is no logic, purpose or fun.

Scorn presents one of the most impressive visual and artistic sections that we can find in a video game. But the best thing is that it is much more than its wonderful staging, in an adventure of horror and disgust, in a journey of mystery and desolation, with a survival horror section that even seems classic due to its approach, open exploration and puzzles. . An experience for both sight and hearing, as well as for our trembling hands on the control pad, in an adventure that leaves a deep and suppurating mark.

It’s also quite a short game, although I personally thought the length was sensible given this kind of overwhelmingly horrifying atmosphere can become tedious if used too long, which was one of the criticisms pointed at the otherwise excellent Alien: Isolation. Scorn is a difficult game to love, but for its singular visual flair, it is one I respect.

Scorn is a gift for fans of the biopunk subgenre and a surprise for those who have never had contact with works of the kind. It offers a contemplative experience of the universe presented there, which is as significant as its name.

Despite having a frustrating combat system, #Scorn manages to be an extremely interesting horror game that should be given at least one chance. The result may be mixed, but the experience is unique.

Scorn is a solid horror option to kill a few hours of your time but isn’t particularly memorable, and covers no new ground in the puzzle horror genre.

A mediocre adventure with a fantastic scenery that's really lacking in a gameplay department. For that reason, the beauty alone can't hold your attention for too long.

Scorn is gross and disgusting in all the best ways. It's a remarkably unique experience that will alienate many, but will undoubtedly find an audience of people that cherish every part of it. How big that audience is remains to be seen.

Equally fascinating and frustrating, Scorn is a huge paradox. Ebb Software’s debut is a fantastic game where the desire to explore new areas is endless, but it still feels that a lot of their ideas were restricted by the market the team aims to please. A must for big horror fans, not much for anyone else.

Overall, Scorn gave me a unique experience in a game. I stayed captivated not only by its world but also by the items and weapons I collected during my time with it. Though there were times I felt lost or confused about what was happening, the gameplay kept a solid forward momentum for me.
