Critic Reviews for Pathologic Classic HD

Everything a great horror game should be, with a fantastic story and a beautifully bleak world to explore.

Pathologic 1 & 2 are masterpieces of games as art. They are cruel and disturbing, but ask unique questions and do things you won't see anywhere else. These are singularly unique experiences that are worth suffering through.

The reason this is such a hard title to review is because it's by and large the exact same game as the original 2005 release. It's not exactly the easiest game to get into, and it still retains all the faults and issues it had upon release. Someone jumping into this game now and expecting something more refined or suitable to today's standards will be disappointed. Yet for players familiar with the game or those willing to explore the dark world it presents, there is plenty of story and interesting moments to appreciate. Just go in knowing that it's a relic of the past, and that it plays as such. Those ok with that will find that an interesting world awaits.

Pathologic Classic HD is certainly an improvement on what was already an instant classic, but players shouldn't expect a hugely different experience from the 2005 version…

Pathologic Classic HD is a solid example of something that can have a small rebirth in a saturated market for anyone who may have missed it the first time round.

A strange, compelling game that the more you read about the more you're going to want to play it -- and there's no better way currently to do so than this HD version.

Pathologic hasn't aged very well. It's biggest flaw? It's simply too slow and clunky.

Turns out that the barriers to entry on this cult classic were a lot bigger than a rough translation and some poorly-aged textures. A perfectly competent re-release of a fascinating, harrowing, and utterly draining experience for those with unshakeable persistence.
