The Crow's Eye is a strange title. It's a horror game in some ways, with great atmosphere for the most part. However, it's also not scary. For the most part it's more of a puzzle game, than horror game and has side-stories far more compelling than the main plot. In all, it offers an interesting, if flawed experience.

The music in the game matches the atmosphere extremely well, and contributes much to the psychological horror that the game emits.

All in all, The Crow's Eye is an interesting title with an interesting enough story, but with some hurdles to uncovering that story and the world in which it's set. Its dedication to dangling the carrot of freedom — and the conclusion of the convoluted tale — is commendable, and players will spend much of the game feeling as though the end is just around the next corner or past the next locked door.
