Uncanny Valley is an unsettling story-driven survival horror where nothing is as it seems. The choices you make have meaningful consequences that will determine your fate, so you need to play times to reveal all of Uncanny Valley's secrets, which becomes so tedious.

Uncanny Valley shows a lot of promise, but the harsh reality of its non-linear narrative structure and reliance on multiple playthroughs to make sense of it all means it is asking too much in the face of the early game's uninspired, repetitive gameplay.

Uncanny Valley has strong presentation and an interesting story to tell but it’s held back by bad execution and cumbersome controls.

Exploring the facility and discovering the nuances of the plot are certainly the highlights of this game, but the lack of direction is a double-edged sword, giving players the opportunity to discover as much as they can but often leaving them unsure of what exactly they are supposed to be doing.

If you want to rush through Uncanny Valley you won't get the full experience. One play through is not enough to learn the ins and outs of the town, how to accomplish specific objectives, and what the story is really trying to convey.

Uncanny Valley offers us a good plot and the amazing atmosphere of the survival horror genre, with a sound that will introduce us completely into the game. But unfortunately it does not convincing the idea of ​​the different endings, creating a total disaster in the story that is full of uncertainties that we will obligatorily repeat over and over again, leaving behind the good intention that Cowardly Creations had.

Uncanny Valley's desire to hark back to the simpler days of survival horror is commendable, especially in those early moments where you're flitting between abstract nightmares and a security job that feels increasingly isolated. However, the sheer openness of its non-linear plot means it's all too easy to jump large sections of the story as you stumble on one of the game's secrets too early on. Still, with a strict consequence-based system that rewards and punishes you in equal measure, Uncanny Valley has a lot of potential. It's just a shame it doesn't fully live up to it.

I have never been too into survival horror games, but have played and really enjoyed some over the years. I was hoping that Uncanny Valley would be one of the good ones. For me, it failed to do so–it wasn't terrible but the lack of a linear storyline made it more confusing than enjoyable for me. Fans of horror survival games may enjoy it more; however, casual players of the genre may want to wait for a price slash.
