A mediocre detective game with predictable stealth and a surreal story that runs out of steam near the end.

Call of Cthulhu's engaging mystery and intriguing utilization of RPG mechanics make it one of the more enjoyable Lovecraftian games in years.

A spirited attempt to adapt Lovecraft's mythos, but while it overcomes the low budget when it comes to atmosphere the overly simplistic gameplay drags it down.

Call of Cthulhu is a mostly competent, occasionally chilling adventure ruined by unspeakable horrors.

Call of Cthulhu is not a particularly good game. It looks and feels dated, contains some frustratingly realised mechanics and has possibly the worst gun combat I've ever experienced (luckily this is only a short section). What it does do well, however, is capture the feel of a Lovecraft story.

Like the creature itself, Call of Cthulhu is a convoluted mix of ideas; some god, some bad. Being based in Lovecraft's short story guarantees a great atmosphere that fans of his works will surely loved, but here, the cosmic horrors are more myth than reality.

Call of Cthulhu suffers from the second half of the accelerated and weak implementation of the mechanisms in them, which could have been a wonderful and captivating horror story otherwise.

Strong in atmosphere, weak in gameplay, Call of Cthulhu is a missed opportunity to build a great lovecraftian experience.

An adventure that will be enjoyed by H.P. Lovecraft's fans with a good setting but certain lack of action/puzzles making its story its strongest weapon to chain you to its desperation abyss.

A good example of a psychological thriller, and perhaps with a sequel Cyanide Studios could smooth out those rough edges and give us the Cthulhu game we deserve.

Call of Cthulhu's atmosphere, especially early on, is delicious, but it's let down by wayward pacing and plot and some muddy graphics.

The final, pivotal choice in the game wasn’t that difficult for me, because I’d run out of all reasons to care.

Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game is an ugly collection of half-baked gameplay features and poorly designed stealth sequences that fails as a horror game.

Call of Cthulhu is a thrilling experience from start to end. The monsters may be a little lackluster, but the writing, puzzles, and characters are all interesting enough to keep you going until the very end. While the graphics are disappointing, the art style, vocal work, and atmosphere do enough to make up for it. Fans of horror or mystery will find plenty to love here.

Call of Cthulhu's superb atmosphere, writing, and gameplay come together to create an excellent experience that is marred only by a handful of issues with polish and presentation.

While I was initially unsure what to expect at the game's outset, Call of Cthulhu is certainly recommended for fans of horror and mystery titles. Along with the satisfying detective work and wonderfully creepy narrative, the twists and turns in this game are quite something.

Call of Cthulhu isn't the investigative adventure-RPG most will want it to be. If you adore the author, this adaptation is worth a look. Otherwise, you can toss it back into the ocean.
