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.

Agony is a game that is better left in the deepest part of hell, or at very least, the discount bin.

Sadistic hell awaits you. Do not enter, if you are austere moralist and be patient. This game is defective, but unique.

Agony stays way behind expectations and don't manages even after the official release to fix some major audio/technical issues with the game. The simple gameplay elements and the big graphical downgrade make it hard to recommend this game to anyone.

If you are predisposed toward the infernal if you enjoy the gory and the journey this game might be for you. If you are looking for solid gameplay and perpetual darkness is an issue, then you will see more devils than this vast hell can hold.

Frankly, it’s saving graces are undoubtedly the graphics and its overall atmosphere. Other than that, I wouldn’t say that the game is something you’d get pumped over with the adrenaline of violence and the satisfaction of victory. It’s more of the “I need to get out of here, I need to get out of here!” kind of feeling. And for those of you who are extremely spiritual and religious, then this will probably give you nightmares. This game is definitely not meant for those who have an eidetic memory or who have sleeping problems.

In short we can say that Agony is a title with great potential but little exploited. Maybe because of the generated hype, maybe for the scenes shown, I do not know, but I was expecting something more. Certainly the setting is well done, both at a scenographic level and at a sound level. The problem arises however at the level of gameplay. We find in fact a narration that fails to stand out, a gameplay all in all uninteresting and a story that says nothing of that, without counting the many bugs present that do not make the experience of the most pleasant. Even the technical sector is not, however, at its best: although the title always maintains 60 FPS, we are often willing to attend microlag and tearing anyway. Besides this we find movements quite cumbersome and certainly not very enjoyable. In short, a game that could give a lot but that, after all, can not emerge at all.

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.

There's a disturbing and horrifying atmosphere that can't be beat with Agony, although game suffers from enough problems that the real Hell is just surviving the bugs.

Overall Agony is a good game, though it lacks a really scare factor after the first few scares it makes for some unique gameplay in a well-designed environment. I like the fact that it’s not linear, you can explore loads of different areas and do different things from what the main story is offering.
