Critic Reviews for Anamorphine

While Anamorphine's story is still worth seeing through, it's a shame that its shoddy optimization tries to actively thwart its touching message at every turn.

Anamorphine has a lot of technical and performance problems, but the outlying narrative finds its way through, delivering a poignant, deep exploration into loss and depression. The game's performance issues can't be ignored, but Elena's story will stick with you for a long, long time.

Anamorphine is a very unique walking simulator which explores very mature themes and has a very well presented intriguing story that successfully raises awareness of depression and the impact it can have on people's lives. Although Anamorphine's story is interesting, it ultimately fails to be a truly entertaining and fun experience due to the overwhelming amount of performance issues throughout. If you're looking for a new walking simulator to enjoy, we'd recommend hopping on your bike and cycling the other way.

Anamorphine is a beautiful narrative similar to a movie.

Anamorphine is a good experience hiding inside of a rough package.

Short and uninspired walk through ugly virtual places. Game had a potential to be something good, but developer didn't deliver.

A lack of visual flair or narrative complexity leave Anamorphine feeling dull and long winded, the cursory way it touches upon difficult emotional issues born out of interpersonal problems and substance abuse comes off poorly as a result.

If you like first-person experiences (a.k.a. walking simulators), and don't mind experiencing the particular topics that Anamorphine deals with, then you should check this one out on PlayStation 4. It features a story that will certain touch you, especially if you've dealt with something similar to what the main protagonist goes through. The one complaint I'd have is that the loading times between chapters are a bit on the long side, and that the game loads for a few seconds at weird spots, but this is probably something that the team is working on to improve by way of a patch.
