Agony proves that, like beauty, horror can be only skin deep. With gratuitous amounts of violence and masochistic overtones, this blood-soaked adventure is not for the faint of heart. But while its bold and detailed environments depict Hell in the most nightmarish ways possible, even the fantastically obscene sights and creepy sounds become mundane and dull by the end of its series of repetitious mazes, unimaginative item hunts, and weak stealth gameplay.

Hell itself comes to video games, in the form of disturbingly explicit imagery and unbearably dull gameplay.

Inconsistent enemy A.I., a bad story, and lackluster environments come together to create a grueling slog of a game

Despite some glorious and gruesome horror imagery, Agony doesn't have much else to offer.

Unfortunately, I can't recommend this game as the payout of eye candy isn't worth the time you have to put in slogging through hell behind the eyes of a depressingly slow husk of a dead man.

Agony is, true to its name and intentions, a hellish experience. My excitement for the game was quickly quashed behind bugs, crashes and unbalanced gameplay, failing to live up to the potential of the game's core ideas and outstanding visual design. I hope that I can travel back to Hell following some substantial patching but, as things stand, Agony is torture in all the wrong ways.

Being a tormented soul which travels between bodies to escape Hell is a great idea. And there are some good design choices made in Agony, but everything falls apart because of its mediocre graphics, poor controls and unpredictable IA.

Controversial, blasphemous, sexualized and generator of agony in the user. Agony can be all these things, as well as an excellent recreation of a particular hell, but quite poor graphics and the simplicity of its game mechanics do not stand out as much as we expected, not even to be considered a horror game.

As its name suggests, playing this at times is painful, void of fun, and a chore that could've been avoided had a lot more care been put into it.

A depiction of hell that hasn't really been fully realised before, Agony is marred by frustrating stealth sections and some poorly explained mechanics. The horrifying imagery is generally effective and the overall presentation manages to survive some glaring technical issues, but this is very much an acquired taste in every sense of the word.
