The Suicide of Rachel Foster builds a haunting hotel, but fills it with an insensitive story ill-equipped to deal with the issues it covers.

The setting is elegantly eerie, but this Gone-Home-inspired first-person mystery struggles to overcome its tired, melodramatic story.

The Suicide of Rachel Foster tackles some tough issues but in a respectful way. Surrounding it is a mystery that will intrigue and surprise right to the end.

I’m glad I played it. I find some sort of weird excitement in being monumentally disappointed by stories — they give me context on what we appreciate in the titles we do enjoy. So if you are like me, The Suicide of Rachel Foster might just be worth your time.

Anyone who likes walking simulators or solid mysteries will likely be satisfied with The Suicide of Rachel Foster. It's got a well-written story and is set in a convincing location. It's also very easy to blow through in a single evening in lieu of watching a similar movie.

The Suicide of Rachel Foster is a beautiful, promising introduction and a slow, meaningless story with minimal interactivity, far-fetched mysticism, and a frustrating ending. All that can sweeten a failure is the graphics, but there are also drawbacks. If you love a good and deep detective adventures, your princess certainly is in another castle.

The Suicide of Rachel Foster is a fascinating interactive thriller that manages to treat extremely delicate issues such as suicide, depression, and love with extraordinary tact. The writing is always on point, even if near the end of the adventure the events appear perhaps a bit rushed. In any case, the game developed by One-O-One Games manages to leave its mark by making us, the players, think about the consequences of our actions in other people's lives.

The Suicide of Rachel Foster tackles challenging subject matter and bravely invites comparisons to recent indie favorites, but all the ambition in the world can't make up for an unengaging story, clunky gameplay, and some unfortunate tone-deaf moments. If you loved Gone Home or Firewatch, you're better off just playing them again – Rachel Foster is a ghostly shadow of those classics.

Turning a blind eye to some uncertainties, one to discover the past of Nicole and Rachel remains a journey that is still worth taking.
