No Son of Mine Reviews
No Son of Mine does a lot right, combining a fantastic setting with vivid graphical fidelity and stellar low lighting. Some ideas don't meet in the middle, such as combining combat limitations with far-too-frequent encounters. Either way, horror fans need to check this out. Those of you new to the genre can also get a solid experience here without being massively overwhelmed.
The best thing about No Son Of Mine is that it's functional and it tries to implement some good ideas. But it's ultimately more frustrating than it is frightening.
Adding up all its good and bad characteristics, No Son Of Mine ends with a positive balance. The dark atmosphere is competent in the different environments that the game explores, as is the basic premise of the plot and gameplay. The issue is that the campaign is brief and full of tedious explorations. As the combats are equally repetitive, we have a somewhat limited experience. In other words, while the basic gameplay is interesting, it becomes boring quickly. Given that the game is an indie, it is commendable to see a robust production with important qualities. If today's title is used as a basis for a more sophisticated production, we will certainly have a great game. Otherwise, it's just an interesting tip for horror lovers.
