Though its lack of polish, pacing problems, and predictable story make it difficult to recommend unreservedly, Blair Witch is nonetheless packed with a number of successful scares and memorable set-pieces that draw admirably on the franchise's lore - and oh, do I love that dog.

Blair Witch is a harrowing walk in the woods that deserves a spot in the horror game pantheon alongside Amnesia, Silent Hill, and their like.

An interesting horror game that never manages to escape the shadow of its '90s inspiration.

A fine take on psychological horror cut down by bugs and wonkiness.
