Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones
Top Critic Average
Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is a fantastic RPG. The story is interesting, the characters are unique, the quests are varied, and the systems run deep. There are a variety of different ways to play this game and I can't wait to jump back in and explore some new paths. This is one nightmare I highly recommend.
If you are a fan of Lovecraft’s work, you are doing yourself a huge disservice by not checking this one out.
Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones will not reveal all of its secrets, but it's an amazing ride all the way through.
Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones has an interesting art direction and a good Lovecraftian inspiration, but seems to be split in half between its nice all-around RPG mechanics and a slow and not very engaging turn-based strategic combat.

Faithfully adapted, bristling with depth, beautifully written and gorgeous to look at, Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is a fantastic role-playing game that's hampered by a frustrating and tedious combat system that is sure to turn many players away in the early goings.
Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is a treat for die-hard Cthulhu fans. The thick, heavy atmosphere of Lovecraft’s stories drips out of every pixel. It’s a pity that I couldn’t ignore tons of bigger and smaller bugs (abysmal game stability included) that halted all the fun.

Stygian ultimately makes for an unfinished, buggy, disjointed, and confusing game. The madness suffered playing isn’t worth the time. Life was better before The Reign of the Old Ones.
Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is a niche game for sure. But if you are among its target audience, you will enjoy your stay at Arkham.

If you're looking for an old-school RPG (with strong Lovecraftian roots), this is definitely your game.
