The Bradwell Conspiracy
Top Critic Average
It’s difficult to fault a game for dreaming big as it still enjoyable to hunt for secrets under Stonehenge. However, that might be because these types of forward-thinking gameplay ideas are almost always alluring. We need to see games with a sense of humanity in its characters and games that can teach the socially awkward in the same way that action games teach reflexes.
There's a decent story to uncover here. but the puzzles and technical issues you'll endure to reach it will likely put you off.
The Bradwell Conspiracy is a quiet exploration of resistance under capitalism, and the repercussions of a 'better' world. The environments are extravagantly detailed and the puzzles become increasingly intricate, towards a denouement that's shocking yet grounded in our own experiences.
The Bradwell Conspiracy presents some interesting concepts and good humor, but all it really does is present them. Puzzles never get interesting or complex, performance is terrible even on an enhanced machine, and it's too short to let its mysteries simmer.
The Bradwell Conspiracy is a game that gets in its own way when it comes to its most important element: puzzles.
The Bradwell Conspiracy is a masterpiece of narrative storytelling, brimming with wit and nuance throughout its 5-6 hours of so-so gameplay. While its latter stages begin to drag slightly, The Bradwell Conspiracy is well worth its 14.99 GBP asking price. This one is an essential for any Portal fan, and I can't wait to see what A Brave Plan has in store for their next offering.
The problem is that while A Brave Plan has some neat ideas for this narrative-based adventure, they’re implemented poorly.
The Bradwell Conspiracy is a game that may feature some interesting puzzles and well executed dialogues but unfortunately, it must be said that performance problems and mostly, an unintuitive and constricting gameplay end up harming the experience and many players will feel like there are very few incentives to invest time and energy into this work.
