Reveil convinces with a psychological horror thriller worthy of the name. Pixelsplit plays its trump cards very well to create a comfort zone that gradually destroys until the player is left naked and exposed to its starkest side.

Reveil might not be outwardly terrifying, but it looks incredible and has some interesting puzzles with plenty of variety.

REVEIL feels like a game that tries to be like its inspirations but fails to deliver on what makes them stand out. The game doesn't appropriately do much with the potential it has and the atmosphere and tension it builds doesn't really go anywhere. The twist at the end also comes out of nowhere and exists only to deliver a shock that really isn't deserved.

Reveil tells a great story through its dialogue and settings, but it misses the mark when it comes to horror. It may not scare you, but it still proves quite compelling.

Although true horror or explicit gore is nowhere to be found, Reveil’s gameplay is filled with tension, mystery, and some genuine surprises. Its many puzzles are fairly well integrated into the narrative and rarely too frustrating or illogical. Part walking simulator, part puzzle game, and part mind-bending mystery, Reveil is a genre-bender that packs a lot of story and memorable creepiness into its modest length.

Reveil isn't going to set the world of P.T.-inspired first-person horror games on fire, and issues with its writing and voice acting often drag it down, but with a strong aesthetic, surreal environments, and straightforward yet engaging puzzles and mechanics, it's still a solid experience that fans of the genre will enjoy.

REVEIL is fine as a mildly spooky walking sim, but it commits so many sins of horror games that it ends up boring at best and frustrating at worst.

Reveil is a walking simulator, but it is a remarkable one. Yes, the puzzles are simple, but they are balanced by the game world full of things to explore and find. There is no monotonous pace, and the stealth and chase sections are more than just tense or strained, featuring a few truly scary moments.

Although Reveil relies primarily on story and atmosphere, which it does well, it also offers a good puzzle-solving and level-exploring experience. It's just a shame that the monsters are not very interesting.

For much of Reveil we were worried that it was just going to be another bog-standard first-person psychological horror game, but it’s safe to say that its late-game twist saved it. And so while it’s not all that scary, and the voice acting of the main character somewhat ruins the atmosphere at times, it’s still very much worth a play if you’re a fan of the genre or just enjoy a good story that throws you a curveball.

REVEIL features a rich, evocative and vintage art direction, with detailed and well-done sets. Unfortunately, everything else is tied up in an average package that struggles to stand out from the myriad of games in the same subgenre.

The story overall was lacklustre, and the horror elements felt non-existent in the game. The segments where a threat is present still don’t add to the horror since they’re easy to bypass. Reveil looks great but comes up short with bland voice acting and a predictable story.

Reveil is entirely derivative of other works in the genre with nothing new to add, and if you think that might be enough for you, it's unfortunately not a very good version of all that either.

If you’re craving a circus-themed horror-lite game that doesn’t break the bank, then Reveil might be your cup of tea. You can snag it for a discounted price of $17.99 right now until March 13. Reveil is an experience that doesn’t leave a very strong impression, but that doesn’t make it not worth your time. Just tailor your expectations right to the lack of originality and technical shortcomings this game suffers from.

REVEIL offers a mix of the familiar and the creative, making it a noteworthy addition to the ever-expanding realm of horror gaming. While it could use some improvement in a few places, overall you won’t regret buying an entry ticket to this carnival of horror.

An audiovisual trip to hell that also combines much of what we love and hate about horror films - including an ending that is debatable. Unfortunately, the gameplay clearly lags behind the presentation, although the rather simple puzzles are good entertainment for an evening.

Although it is not a PT, it is one of those games that will allow you to have a good time.
