Overall somewhere between good and great. The first half of the game is rather boring. The story dragged on, the characters were mostly uninteresting and the gameplay got repetitive pretty fast. But then something clicked. The plot got very intriguing, the characters likeable and the gameplay had some decent variety. It was a very „nice“ experience, brought some innovation to gameplay and I encourage you to try it out yourself (100 % if you have Game Pass). Oh yes, I almost forgot: The graphics were outstanding. I promise you, you‘ll enjoy the beautiful landscapes and cities, villages, etc. The rat swarms were also disgustingly beautiful.

Side note: Sometimes the game was a little frustrating, because the checkpoints or enemies aren‘t that well placed. But only a minor issue, it doesn‘t happen often.

This game is surely not for everyone. It focuses heavily on its story and it’s not trying to be something it isn’t. You won’t get some flashy action sequences here, nor will you get to slash through your enemies like a hot knife through butter. But you will get to experience a journey filled with love and hate, friendship and sorrow, sadness and joy, and you will definitely enjoy every step of the way.

A Plague Tale: Innocence has some clunky writing in places, and its play gets stale after a time, but it prevails with a compelling mystery and a beautiful world.

A Plague Tale: Innocence isn't the largest, most expansive game you'll ever play, nor does it accomplish new things in the areas where it does place its ambitions, but it's stronger for it. It's a focused story-driven experience completely free of bloat or unnecessary attempts at lengthening its runtime, and knows exactly what it wants to do. It delivers an emotional and effective tale, while also implementing simple mechanics in constantly engaging ways to make sure that it's not always all about the story.
