Contrast ends as ambiguously - and ambitiously - as it begins, but without the tugging of emotions that its digital contemporaries have managed. You're left instead asking "was that it?" And as the credits roll back to the main menu, and only a few Trophies to complete the set left, you realise it is. If you're willing to accede to the twitchy controls and prefer a mystery to a clear answer, then Contrast is worth experiencing; even if the prestige of its central conceit isn't as clever as you'd wish it to be.

When it works, Contrast is a beautifully executed vaudevillian tale of sadness and intrigue, but when it doesn’t, the frustrating glitches and awkward controls will drive you mad. Contrast is interesting, and something different, unique and new, and for that, I think it’s worth investigating for yourself, especially if you can see past the bad and get to the good.

El cine negro y los ritmos jazz se combinan para darnos una aventura nocturna con cabarets de fondo. Exploración 3D y plataformas 2D se fusionan en un recorrido de sombras y contrastes en el que destacan aspectos tan positivos como la innovación pero desfallecen otros tan determinantes como la duración o el control. Compulsion Games necesitaba más para conseguir el título que esperaban, pero como pequeño oasis de originalidad, los jugadores de más selecto paladar podrían encontrar aquí justo lo que buscaban.
