The Park looks like it was a more of a test than a game itself. It's confusing, simple and UI is useless for console players. You can't enjoy the story, because you will get lost. You can't enjoy backstory, because you need to stand against your TV to ready anything in-game. It's a quick completion though.

At the end of the day, The Park has some really nice set pieces going for it. The mood it's looking for mostly achieves, and the voice work really hits the nail right on the head. The way the game moves isn't a chore like so many other First Person Experience games tend to be. It does some things right, just not all of them. If your expectations are in order, taking a trip to Atlantic Island Park may not be such a scary proposition after all.

The Park is an interesting experience, and one I feel glad to have had. Somewhere within it, there is an extremely good horror experience, and with some narrative changes it could be a truly excellent game. However, The Park fails to reach these expectations, which is a shame given how good some aspects of it are.

The Park was a decent experience though far too quick to really offer a solid experience.

The Park is an incredibly creepy narrative experience that unfortunately suffers from a lack of things to do.

All in all this game was fun but it could definitely use more content and substance

Generally, though, The Park is an effective experience. It avoids the first-person horror genre’s worst habits while conveying an engaging story. It leans hard on horror tropes (and fails to interrogate well-trod stereotypical presentations of mental illness) but manages to unearth something potent in the process. Your mileage will certainly vary; roller coasters are thrilling for some, nauseating for others. I enjoyed this ride.

The Park is a psychological horror narrative adventure that takes place in the creepy theme park of Atlantic Island Park, and it is featured by Lorraine, a mother desperate to find her son Callum, who seems to play the game of cat and mouse with her inside the park. The easy fright will evolve into a more psychological and distressing terror as we discover the truth of what happens in The Park. It is a pity its outdated technical section and its duration so short, but still enjoyable if we find it very cheap.

The Park is deep, complex and disturbing. With great themes and passive mechanics, The Parks invites you to create a seriesof images in your mind that will put you in the flesh of the main character, Lorraine, and question her continuosly. Its links to The Secret World make it a bit confusing for those who haven't played it, though.

The Park is an interesting attempt to offer a spin-off experience for those who love The Secret World and to deliver some Halloween appropriate content for gamers who are interested in psychological horror.
