The Crow’s Eye es un juego que empieza fenomenal, con potencia, y que por encima de todo ofrece lo que mejor maneja durante toda la obra: el miedo. Si bien es cierto que flaquea en cuanto a mecánicas y herramientas jugables, al igual que con un desenlace confuso, no quita el hecho de que ofrece puzzles ciertamente complejos, a momentos, al igual que interesantes. Se trata de un título que da para unas buenas horas de intriga, no llega a hacerse pesado en ningún momento, y posiblemente sea la pieza fundamental que demuestra el increíble potencial que tienen estos chicos de 3D2 Entertainment, que sin duda alguna, volverán a sorprendernos en un futuro, habiendo aprendido de los errores pasados.Leer nuestro análisis
Much like BioShock and other similar games, the best thing about The Crow's Eye is the storytelling. Although the setup isn't especially original, it ends up going in a few crazy directions I didn't see coming. It has an instantly compelling setting that is full of creepy moments and over-the-top characters. Of course, you've seen a lot of these elements before, but that shouldn't keep you from getting to the bottom of this mystery. Just don't expect a lot of scares.Leer análisis
All in all 3D2 Entertainment have a made an enthralling psychological puzzle horror game, despite the cliche setting. It takes many of the tropes from the horror genre, but uses them sparingly to ensure your experience never feels cheap. Those looking for a gruesome horror game with a jump-scare around every corner will be disappointed. The Crows Eye lets your imagination do a lot of the work, enabling a much more psychological feeling of terror, rather than fight or flight. If that sounds like your kind of thing, I highly recommend it.Leer análisis

For those looking for a new game that is a little different, The Crow’s Eye is worth checking out. More of a puzzle game than horror, it is the play-ability that keeps the player invested. While there are moments of frustration, for the most part The Crow’s Eye delivers where it matters.Leer análisis

At 8-10 hours in length, The Crow’s Eye hits the sweet spot between being too short, and becoming repetitive. The grand reveal at the end of the game, the reason for why your character is being put through these trials, is satisfying, if a bit disappointing considering the build up. The entire game is centered around movement, but in the final scene, you’re rendered immobile while being treated to an extended expository dump. On the bright side, it’s learning about Holtwick’s other experiments that really make the story interesting. Things get very creepy as you approach the finale, and I was once again re-evaluating what kind of game this was. Strangely, this inconsistency improved the game. You were never able to tell whether the next room contained a cool puzzle, or a horrific revelation. This was the lasting impression The Crow’s Eye left me with. Although there are a scattering of minor annoyances, it was the enjoyment of unraveling both the story and the puzzles that you’ll remember.Leer análisis
The Crow’s Eye es, sin duda, un muy buen juego de puzles y plataformas. Tiene tintes de terror y presenta una narrativa e historia muy interesantes que te mantienen pegado a la pantalla para querer saber más. Además su calidad gráfica y sonora acompañan. Cualquier jugador que haya disfrutado con Portal o Bioshock seguramente hagan lo propio con The Crow’s Eye que, a pesar de no tener la madurez a nivel jugable de otros títulos de su género, es un videojuego muy sólido que te llevará completarlo entre 7-8 horas, algo muy destacable tratándose de un título indie.Leer análisis
Overall, The Crow’s Eye gives players an approximately five-to-seven hour experience that has them dabbling in the mentally unstable shoes its protagonist. Solving puzzles is fun and rewarding, and the atmosphere and setting is legitimately creepy. And as the story unravels itself, the effort put into solving the puzzles should feel rewarding. If you’re a fan of horror and puzzle games (together or separately), then The Crow’s Eye might be something you try out. Even if you’re a stranger to the genre, The Crow’s Eye’s storytelling and atmosphere are worth the while.Leer análisis

But even as it stands, The Crow’s Eye is still an absolutely enchanting game. The fact that a bug that serious could exist and only slightly hamper my enjoyment of the game should be testament enough to that. If you’re a fan of first-person puzzle games and have been disappointed by the lack of true genre gems in recent years, then The Crow’s Eye is for you.Leer análisis

A pesar de no tener la madurez jugable de algunos títulos de más peso, The Crow’s Eye es un videojuego de aventura muy sólido. Puzzles ingeniosos, plataformas desafiantes, una ambientación tétrica y una historia y narrativa que te mantienen pegado a la pantalla con ganas de conocer más, harán que los amantes de juegos como Portal o Amnesia disfruten con esta aventura. Su calidad gráfica es aceptable a pesar de algunos fallos puntuales o bajadas de frames y lo realmente destacable es su increíble banda sonora, que nos hará sentir dentro de la Universidad de Crowswood en la piel del protagonista recorriendo sus amplios escenarios y superando las pruebas a las que un científico loco ha decidido someternos.Leer análisis

The Crow's Eye es una nueva versión de la típica aventura de puzles y misterio en una "casa encantada" que podemos encontrar en PC. Sin grandes novedades, al menos aporta un poco más que una serie de pruebas sobre tableros e interruptores; potencia la exploración y su nivel asequible evitará prolongados bloqueos. Para el público adicto a investigar un lugar poco acogedor, el debut de 3D2 Entertainment no defraudará.Leer análisis

The Crow’s Eye è un puzzle game in prima persona che oscilla tra una narrativa in qualche modo interessante e un gameplay che, pur non essendo negativo, non riesce comunque a offrire particolari soddisfazioni. Accanto a una storia che riesce, seppur in maniera non sempre coinvolgente, a offrire spunti e qualche stimolo, si accompagnano dinamiche di gioco che si appoggiano a trovate ben note e già viste in altri titoli del genere, senza però riuscire a regalare la necessaria sensazione di appagamento. Nel complesso, dunque, il gioco è sufficiente, e non c’è dubbio che alcuni giocatori potrebbero essere colpiti dall’impostazione complessiva. La presenza di problemi sul piano tecnico, soprattutto nella gestione delle collisioni e della fisica, ridimensiona però un po’ tutto il progetto, forse troppo ambizioso per i suoi mezzi reali.Leer análisis
Despite an intriguing story and interesting puzzle platforming, The Crow’s Eye’s identity issues don’t entirely play in its favor. Puzzles sometimes feel like padding, and though the mystery remains, the game falters at holding your interest as the game progresses. Clunky platforming controls and puzzles that require an entirely different perspective may also frustrate some. If you’re looking for a game with jump-scares, or at least familiar horror tropes, then The Crow’s Eye might not be for you. However, if you like a nice mystery or good puzzle platforming elements, you might find something to enjoy here. The electromagnet, at the very least, is worth checking out.Leer análisis

The audio is really great, I haven’t heard such good voice acting in an indie game. The story is told in an interactive way in an atmospheric and changing environment. Puzzles are mostly easy and decipherable. The Crow’s Eye will give you circa 10-12 hours of gameplay. If you like puzzles, platform-jumping, discovering and to be scared, go for it.Leer análisis
The Crow’s Eye Is Sinister, Intriguing, and a Little Too Much like Portal

THE CROW’S EYE ON PC
One of the best things about video games, as a medium, is the way that players interact with interesting worlds and stories in order to create an all-around experience that delivers a combination of expectations and surprises. When I first jumped in to review The Crow’s Eye, all I knew about the title was that it was some manner of psychological horror. What I found as I progressed was something that was certainly more, and which challenged my expectations at several twists and turns through its story.
At its core, The Crow’s Eye is the tale of a dark and sinister experiment deep within a crumbling university, called Crowswood. Players begin the tale with little exposition or explanation about their surroundings, taking the only opening cues from a voice drifting in over the university’s PA system — one that sounds like it’s doing its best imitation of Mark Hamil’s Joker from Batman: the Animated Series. The game’s opening chapters are largely focused on exploration and discovery, with notes and audio tapes laying the groundwork for the story thus far alongside the shrill urgings of Dr. William Holtwick over the loudspeakers.
The Crow's Eye University
Perhaps the most confusing feature of this early going is that, as players discover more and more about the world, there’s no clear indication of their role in it. A number of names come up time and again in the audio tapes and scattered notes — at first, it seems as if you’re embroiled in a police investigation surrounding several students who’ve disappeared, but the deeper into the university you travel, the more sinister things seem to become.
Unfortunately, The Crow’s Eye seems to suffer a bit from a lack of identity. While the atmosphere and setting is firmly rooted in the horror genre, the actual gameplay seems to delve further and further into Portal-style puzzle-solving and platforming. While several of the puzzles are interesting and difficult, the disparity between the game’s ambiance and appearance and the requirements to move on grows further; there’s even a section that feels ripped directly from the Portal franchise, down to the large bold numbers painted on the walls and the complex jumping puzzles across decrepit architecture and moving platforms.
The Crow's Eye Platform Puzzle
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Portal-style puzzler without some unique gear. While players spend much of the opening acts equipped only with a lighter to pierce the pervasive darkness, The Crow’s Eye does eventually hand over some more interesting tools, including lockpicks and a gas mask. The most useful and central to progression later on, though, is the electromagnet. Working as a flashlight and as an object-manipulation and movement tool, this critical piece of gear plays a leading role in many of the game’s latter-stage puzzles.
The biggest downfall, quite literally, that The Crow’s eye suffers from is platforming sections. The controls, while suitable for exploration and discovery, aren’t particularly well-honed for precision jumping, crouching, and weaving across moving platforms and other elements. This makes the stretches of the game that rely on these things more frustrating than they might be otherwise, and more than once I had to stop, close the game, and take a break before making another attempt. The game’s limited save-point system adds some to this frustration by sometimes forcing backtracking when the platforming gets the best of you.
The Crow's Eye Block Puzzle
All in all, The Crow’s Eye is an interesting title with an interesting enough story, but with some hurdles to uncovering that story and the world in which it’s set. Its dedication to dangling the carrot of freedom — and the conclusion of the convoluted tale — is commendable, and players will spend much of the game feeling as though the end is just around the next corner or past the next locked door. Like the experiments its characters describe, The Crow’s Eye becomes a trial of how much players are willing to endure for that final piece of its puzzles. The Crow’s Eye releases March 20th on Steam.Leer análisis

The Crow’s Eye es un juego que empieza bastante bien y con potencial de ofrecer una aventura de puzzles y plataformas muy interesante. Sin embargo, no termina de cuajar del todo gracias a unos puzzles muy sencillos y unas secciones de plataformas que no siempre funcionan tan bien como deberían.Leer análisis
En resumen, The Crow’s Eye es un juego de terror entretenido, con ciertas variantes que juegan muy a su favor y una dificultad no demasiado elevada, fácil por momentos, que no excluye a nadie. Su duración quizá se quede un tanto escasa, pero siempre viene bien echar una segunda partida para descubrir esos secretos que se nos han quedado por el camino y que servirán para afianzar los descubrimientos de este macabro lugar.Leer análisis
The game ends on a satisfying but dull reveal which uncharacteristically for such games answers all of your questions in a very straight forward manner even if you hadn’t been paying attention to the notes along the way. Ultimately it’s a game I was glad to have finished but wouldn’t suggest to anyone unless that’s your thing.Leer análisis
