A little P.T. here, a little Layers Of Fear there, a little Project Zero there - the mix in Infliction is just perfect. Clean graphics, bombastic sound and a good portion of psycho-horror let the debut album Infliction become a top 10 title of the genre. It is to be hoped that developer Clinton McCleary will remain true to the horror genre and provide us with even more atmospheric games of this kind. So. lights out! Headphones on! And off into the darkest, psychic abysses!

Infliction Extended Cut was a fun, scary, mysterious experience. The gameplay itself is very simple, but the story and the things you discover are what make you stay until the end. I enjoyed my time with it.

Certain events will or will not trigger during a playthrough, meaning that sometimes you may see things on a replay you didn't see before, giving it a high amount of replayability. The game also includes a museum-like behind the scenes feature that can be unlocked after you've beaten it for the first time, something I wish more games would do. I was pleasantly surprised by Infliction, and if you like horror games I think you will be, too.

While some of the game’s mechanics, such as your limited defensive options, come across as a little half-baked, the oppressive atmosphere and genuine chills Infliction: Extended Cut delivers make it a standout survival horror title on a system that’s somewhat starved of them. Though many players will probably burn through the game’s five-hour story in just a few sittings, the New Game Plus Mode also does a good job of adding replay value with its revamped puzzles and more challenging gameplay.

It's not groundbreaking in the technical department or in its gameplay, but it's a well focused game that follows the basic rules of horror. As such, it delivers what it promises.

A fun and frightening story-driven horror indie game that impresses with its sheer attention to detail and genuinely unsettling atmosphere.

I have to admit that despite its flaws, Infliction really impressed me. It has a deep and tragic story with well fleshed-out, complex characters. Not everything in here is wholly original, but a lot of it is. This game shows that Clinton McCleary has a lot of creativity and genuinely unique ideas. If he could make a game this intriguing by himself with hardly any money, I can only imagine what a talent like his could do with a larger budget.

Infliction: Extended Cut is a horror game for those who enjoy the genre. You won't find anything too cool, but your reference to PT makes it very interesting. His achievement is stage design, the construction of the base house that eventually transforms into a maze of terror and turmoil. It fails in the originality of its story, and in some graphic aspects such as the spectrum design that haunts us throughout the game. In the sound aspect, the game fulfills. And this makes it a game that we can enjoy.
