  1. Really good game
    by Krista Watkins, USA - Mar 17th 2014

    This was a pretty good game. A little difficult, but you don't typically get stuck because you don't know what to do next. Game flows smoothly from one part to another with plenty of information so you can foliow along and know where to go. No puzzles, which is a bummer for me, and the items you needed were easy to find and use. A little too simple, but I won't complain to much about that. Would recommend this game for a rainy afternoon with nothing better to do.

  2. Cognition:The Hangman
    by Kelly Salzwedel, USA - Jan 11th 2014

    Fan of adventure games that give me a lot of playtime. This one started with a weak intro, that oddly enough, felt choppy, and as if it were a last minute tack on. Immediately I feared a "lemon." But once I actually got into the game I was hooked. This adventure game had easy controls which made the game feel intuitive. Graphics were fine, music could be turned low so that I didn't miss a single nuance of dialogue. Best part? The puzzles and storyline made sense.

  3. Captivating interactive detective novel game
    by Requiem, Sweden - Dec 31st 2013

    Cognition 1, a really scene setting good game and storyline, done with a combination of animations and comic series illustrations, nice directing and good voice acting. The characters are somewhat cliché but not too bad, the game progress and puzzles are captivating although not that difficult to solve.

    This is as stated chapter 1 of 4, so around the time you think you've gotten into the game, it does end too soon. Expect a few evenings of an interactive detective novel with depth to it, and music that is perfect for the setting.

    As you start the game you choose graphics level which allows you to adjust it to what suits your computer. The game has a few minor bugs, one being when you get the city travel map up - if you don't have an interface and cursor then, press B and it seems to work well after that. The characters also do a few unrealistic things, and a few times graphics glitch or voice volumes might turn odd, however the game is stable as such.

    For me, chapter 1 gave me the taste for more and I'm on to chapter 2. I'm giving it 4 starts, the 5th withheld for minor bugs, some unrealistic details and too short gameplay time.
