Critic Reviews for Emily Wants To Play

Emily Wants to Play is a horror game for the age of Twitch and YouTube. It’s a game for people to play and give themselves heart attack after heart attack, to the amusement of whoever is watching. There’s value in that, and this game does that better than most, but it doesn’t get its claws into you – it doesn’t really even try to. When playing with Emily gets too scary, all you have to do is stop.

Emily Wants to Play, but she doesn't play to the best of her abilities on Xbox One.

The game is enjoyable and is well presented and the developer Shaun Hitchcock deserves all the credit for making this an immersive and frightening experience. The game controls on console are a little clumsy sometimes, for example when try to turn lights on or off, but this slight annoyance is in most First Person games I play (probably my own failings really, I was never part of the PC master race). It also has a release on Oculus Rift which no sane person could want to play, unless you want to test out the limits of your heart. For the price and it being a one man indie game, Emily wants to Play delivers where many mainstream titles fail. It is genuinely scary and immersive and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Survival Horror games.
