Critic Reviews for Monstrum

Monstrum crafts a genuinely frightening game of procedurally generated hide and seek.

Read full review

Terrifying visuals are undermined by choppy controls and a frustrating use of procedurally generated levels. Monstrum could have been a terrifying horror experience, instead it became a boring one.

Monstrum is a great example of how simple ideas can be so effective. It's a tense horror game, it's just a shame there are framerate issues.

Sadly, Monstrum on the Xbox One is a poor attempt at an interesting concept. The abandoned ship isn’t the most unique setting for a horror game but being pursued by a bloodthirsty monster should provide at least some tension. Instead it is a laborious plod through samey corridors where sometimes being caught by the monster is preferable than having to perform the same objectives over and over again just to escape.

Monstrum is a survival horror in which we must escape from a huge ship at all costs to get out alive, technically it is somewhat lazy and its playable idea does not bring anything new to the genre.

Monstrum is a game that is built around its environment, and monsters entirely dictating what experience you will have.

A scary fun game with a multiable endings but the clunky controls are one of the reminders of its last-gen technical limitation
