Critic Reviews for Trenches

Trenches is a videoludic work in which we recover images and scenarios from the past, preserving our experiences and emotions, and elaborating a personal story set in the horrors of war.

The jump-scares in the WWI-themed survival horror sim Trenches are enough to elicit a little adrenaline, even though you know they are coming. There's also a little replay value because the clues will be scattered randomly at the start of a new game. Even so, the theme and objective can be limiting; there is not really much to do beyond finding things, and there's not much to experience except tension.

"It could be a good game, but..." - that's the thing I kept saying to myself the whole time I was running through the bloody and muddy trenches of this indie survival horror. There are interesting ideas here, but their implementation is average and sometimes even quite bad.

Trenches has a very unique storyline infused with many jumpscares and unexpected twists, with a review of 9/10 on Steam and the price only being $9.99 you can’t beat it.

Trenches is a bold first-person survival horror game that delivers chilling jump scares in a unique war-torn environment. The audio design is the real winner here, and playing the game with headphones on is a must. The visuals wear thin after one playthrough and there's not much incentive to reply this short game, but at ten bucks it offers a couple of hours of intense scares that are worth experiencing if you're a big horror buff.

I can appreciate strapping popular indie horror game templates to The Great War, but when my overriding thoughts vary from boredom to unintentional laughter then appreciation can only go so far.

Creepy dolls, crying babies, and a general sense of creepiness can’t compensate for generally lackluster play
