Critic Reviews for Barrow Hill: The Dark Path

The history of the Barrow Hill games eerily parallel that of the Blair Witch Project film series.

Satire and nostalgia are not enough to make a game good. Games should be fun, and Barrow Hill: The Dark Path is not.

As far as the horror genre is concerned, Barrow Hill: The Dark Path is very quaint. It was made by a small team, who didn't have much of a budget to work with, but it's clear that they invested a lot of passion into their game. This adventure doesn't have a lot of hand holding, but the puzzles are mostly sensible, and even consistent with the lore. On the other hand, it's a little too easy to overlook certain clues, wandering in the forest gets dull, and it could have used a little more polish. Most of the serious bugs were ironed out, but there's still the occasional oddity, such as a screwdriver mysteriously appearing in one's inventory. Maybe a witch put it there. Who knows?
