The perfect start to an episodic survival horror: it presents a terrifying story and its slow dynamics accompanied by an overwhelming and mysterious atmosphere.

Song of Horror has some great ideas and is genuinely scary at times, but random deaths and awkward controls sometimes threaten to spoil the experience.
Song of Horror is a great adventure with a thickening nightmare atmosphere that suffers from controversial punishment system. Interesting puzzles, nice graphics and the concept of gameplay with the death of characters should please all fans of the genre.

Song of Horror's scariest aspect is its permadeath feature - not because it's spooky, but because slogging through levels is an absolute chore. Worse yet, Song of Horror punishes the player for exploring its admittedly beautiful environment. Neat technical features and meticulously crafted lore do somewhat make up for its faults. But ultimately, none but the most hardcore horror fans will give this game the time of day (or night).
Song of Horror is a genuinely atmospheric, creepy horror game, with the major selling point of an enemy that you're never actually sure about. The advanced AI system of the horrors you face, combined with sound, visuals and other game mechanics make for one of the more engrossing and captivating horror titles of recent memory. There are some faults, such as backtracking and a bit of adventure game logic when trying to solve puzzles, but these do nothing to stymie everything Protocol Games are bringing to the table.
The first two episodes of Song of Horror demonstrates how a good indie can recall the best survival horrors of two decades ago.

In episodic video games, which are becoming more and more popular, the first episode is essential and is the biggest chance for the developers to convince players to continue playing their future episodes. Unfortunately for Song of Horror, this first and very important step goes horribly wrong as it suffers from tons of issues in almost every department. Right now, there is absolutely no reason for anyone who played it to go on and purchase the second episode, unless the developers really up their game.

Eerily Quiet is another fantastic horror experience with solid atmosphere and fun puzzles, facing the same creature is becoming a bit repetitive to be honest though, and there are some technical issues. still, this is highly recommended for fans of the genre.

If Song of Horror’s remaining episodes can maintain the level of quality set out in its first two episodes, survival horror fans are in for a treat.
