Agony proves that, like beauty, horror can be only skin deep. With gratuitous amounts of violence and masochistic overtones, this blood-soaked adventure is not for the faint of heart. But while its bold and detailed environments depict Hell in the most nightmarish ways possible, even the fantastically obscene sights and creepy sounds become mundane and dull by the end of its series of repetitious mazes, unimaginative item hunts, and weak stealth gameplay.
It would have made a great game to stroll through as there's a lot of incredible visuals to see, but trying to play through it in the state it's in is torturous. Unfortunately, I can't recommend this game as the payout of eye candy isn't worth the time you have to put in slogging through hell behind the eyes of a depressingly slow husk of a dead man.
Based on our impressions of the pre-release material and the alpha we thought we'd end up in horror heaven, but it turns out that Agony is actually a one-way ticket to generic video game hell. Madmind's horrific adventure is full of bugs, there's a distinct absence of story, and the repetitive gameplay it offers means that it fell way short of its potential. You might as well stick to Doom for your hellish escapades, then.
