Game Information

Available on:PCOct 29, 2015

Developer: Ice-pick Lodge

Publisher: Gambitious Digital Entertainment

Genres: Adventure, RPG

The original Indie Cult Classic returns fully restored, and more evocative than ever. Pathologic Classic HD is the Definitive Edition of the original Cult Classic Psychological First-Person Survival game. The game represents a unique and unforgettable experience as it transports players in a weird town which crouches, ominous, in the far reaches of an ancient steppe. It was once a small drover settlement, huddled around a monstrous abattoir—but something about the butchery it was near has changed it. It has developed an odd social structure over the course of several generations.

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

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…

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 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.
