  • The Medium review: Halfway there | Shack News

    1 month ago - By N4G

    Josh Hawkins - "All of the good bits of the story are wasted on an unfulfilling ending that feels rushed. The game drops its biggest twist and then youre immediately walking into the ending without any chance to digest it. This is further made worse by an after-credits cutscene that almost feels like Bloober Team leaving the story open for a sequel."

  • Review: The Medium delivers mediocre and corny horror | Gaming Technology News

    1 month ago - By N4G

    Developer Bloober Team is bringing his second game to the relatively new Xbox Series X with The Medium. The previous title - a polished version of the Observer - couldn't quite convince us, so we had our hopes on this psychological horror game.

    Jordan Devore writes "I feel like The Medium could've asked far more from its players. It's too passive. It never throws you in the deep end, so your nerves never really kick in. The game's main hook, the dual reality split-screen presentation where you control two versions of Marianne at once, looks cooler than it is."

    Nirav summarizes, "The Medium presents intelligent horror and innovative gameplay inspired by Silent Hill, but far overstays its welcome and fails to provide closure. The split screen mechanics work wonders for new kinds of puzzles, but a myriad of technical issues hinder immersion."

    Joe LaRue of The Koalition writes: Bloober Team has been one of the most creative developers and publishers on the forefront when it comes to bringing the world of horror into the new gaming world. With recent games such as Observer: System Redux, Blair Witch, and the Layers of Fear games, they have a firm grasp on what it is to lead the genre of horror with the new consoles and systems for the modern-day gaming warrior. Their next step down the dark path of horror comes to us in the form of The Medium.
