    Russia is stepping into the gaming business.

    When i got this game i expected an average run and gun shooter. I was wrong. What i really got was a beautifully structured and well made game that rivals Crysis in graphics, Sure it may chug a sometimes but i found that... Read Full Review

    Where's my coat. It's so damn cold here!

    I'm just on the first levels of this game, but I feel that is enough to write a review about it. I was out of titles to play when I found out Cryostasis in a game store for 20 bucks. I just knew the game because I rea... Read Full Review

    Clunky controls and boring, repetitive gameplay ultimately sink Cryostasis.

    It isn't easy for me to heavily criticize a game like Cryostasis. It is a classic "underdog", a PC-only niche game that comes out of Eastern Europe. I wish that I could say that I enjoyed this game, but I can't. It ma... Read Full Review

    A Missed Opportunity

    Cryostasis is one of those games that takes a long time to hook you into action and when it does is hard to reverse the damage some of the boredom you had to endure to get into the part of the game that is actually fun, ... Read Full Review

    "Read this before buying or renting"

    Okay let me start off with the fact that I don't usually write reviews and for me to be penning this down means I seriously dislike this game, the fact that it was so "broken" and yet managed to score an 8.0. I do not me... Read Full Review

    How you view this game will almost certainly depend on you.

    Cryostasis: The Sleep of Reason is either the most brilliant work of philosophy ever made into a game, or it is just a very slow-paced FPS with an incoherent story. How you view this game will almost certainly depend on ... Read Full Review

    Cryostasis is an experience like no other.

    I've been quick to remind everyone I know, all three of them, of how anxious I've been to write a review for Cryostasis since its release, but my current gaming habits continue to render me unable. I have a whopping TWEN... Read Full Review

    Scary, immersive, atmospheric, and intelligent survival horror. I can't imagine asking for more.

    When Cryostasis first came out, I passed it by with a simple "meh". Not to say I thought it was a bad game, just not the kind I'd spend my cash on. Months passed. I was at the mall, quickly browsing the Gamestop t... Read Full Review

    great!! a classic horror game..

    When I started this game I didn't have very high expectations, but as the game progressed slowly and things started to get unfold my interest grew more and more. The story is something like this, the lead character of ... Read Full Review
