Bloober Team’s latest is one of the scariest horror experiences I’ve played in a long time, and its strong sense of place, story, and action put it above the majority of other games in the genre. Observer is simply the best of both worlds and is a must-play for anyone who considers themselves a fan of either sci-fi or horror.
The worst case offender as far as the PS4 version is the performance. It stutters constantly, it’s annoying, and a hindrance. Some moments in gameplay definitely feel like an intentional stutter or glitch, but this framerate is really a big blemish on an otherwise excellent experience. The devs are working on it from what I’m told, but it’s still a shame currently as is. I never knew sci-fi could be this scary, Observer proved me wrong.
Observer feels like a step down from Layers of Fear. It's intriguing and mind-bending enough for sure with its atmosphere sure to creep out people. But the lead VA, annoying artefacts and some of the horror elements just don't click.
