Critic Reviews for Blackwood Crossing

Blackwood Crossing's truth is unforgettable and wrenching.

Read full review

Blackwood Crossing does a great job with telling a story, but it’s lacking in lustre as a game. The surreal setting, the believable characters, and the plot are all highlights of Blackwood Crossing, and if that is what you’re looking for to wile away a couple of hours, then I recommend it. If you’re focus is purely more on the gameplay side of things, it may be worth waiting for updates to roll out to address issues like movement and fiddly interaction. PaperSeven’s first release shows a studio that has promise in storytelling, but it just needs to fine tune the gaming side a little bit more.

Once you'll have finished the game and switched off your console, you'll remember Blackwood Crossing as one of the most memorable gaming experiences in recent years: in just a few hours, it will summon vivid and palpable feelings; joy and sorrow so touching as to stimulate reflection on the value of brotherly affection.

A short experience, but very intense and emotional.

Blackwood Crossing is a surprising release, a game that delicately explores the difficult emotions of grief, guilt and love told through the eyes of two orphaned siblings.

With its story and atmosphere Blackwood Crossing gives an original adventure and provide various emotions to the player. Even if it has a few problems such as a few loading times, a slow moving speed, a short game time, PaperSeven's title transports you into the world of Scarlett and when the final screen arrives, you only want to keep on playing. We look forward to play their next game which, hopefully, will correct the few flaws of this first soft.

Heart wrenchingly beautiful and emotionally exhausting, Blackwood Crossing is a game that will be on your mind for days.

Blackwood Crossing is a game I highly recommend experiencing. It's a game that defies explanation but has deeply emotional implications. If you're as fascinated as I am by the emerging trend of games that portray real feels then Blackwood Crossing is a no-brainer.
