The game is at its best when you’re progressing through engrossing scripted areas and well-crafted set pieces, but sadly those moments are few and far between. If they could have found a way to bypass the recurring key hunting and fetch questing, this would have been a surefire indie horror darling. Instead it falls flatter than a Bendy cutout after a half-assed jump scare.
A comparison with Bioshock can never be a bad thing either, especially when it comes to world-building, and even if it could do with a touch more polish, we'd recommend this for anyone, even younger gamers like those who helped popularise this game in the first place. After all, it is rated 12 and up, so as long as you can take the spooks you're in for a good ride.
Bendy and the Ink Machine get big points for the former but fail to hit the mark in the latter. It’s a creepy, original, and interesting game world that is realized in a creative and aesthetically way. Unfortunately, that imaginative atmosphere is filled with boring puzzles and lacklustre combat. It’s certainly worth checking out for the experience but don’t expect much more than that.
