Detention isn't for everyone. It's not an easy snack to gobble up. It will haunt you for some time and creep into your dreams. I recommend the game for those who enjoy deep and troubled stories and want to experience them in some other manner than just keep walking and pressing X when prompted. I can't stress enough how mature the story and its dramaturgy is, considering these guys have never done any published games or storytelling before. Detention meets all the unwritten laws of Asian tragedies and I could easily picture it as a movie by the likes of Ang Lee, the world renowned Taiwanese director. That's the highest compliment I can imagine giving to this game.
Simply put, Detention is a fantastic melding of narrative, gameplay and graphics. It's got a highly unique setting that is supported by excellent sound design and music. While admittedly the subject matter is very dark and depressing and might not be everyone's cup of tea, it's highly recommended for gamers who love their horror served with heavy atmosphere, dreamlike puzzles, a dash of gore and a thought-provoking story that will stick with you long after the experience is over.
Se inspira en Silent Hill entre otros clásicos del terror psicológico pero Detention es mucho más que un simple imitador. Tiene identidad, te habla con su propia voz, y lo que cuenta es un relato escalofriante, siniestro, que en muchos sentidos te mete el miedo en el cuerpo. Sus puzles son ingeniosos, algunos incluso originales; también el sigilo está bien resuelto, lo de escapar de la muerte enfrentándote cara a cara a ella es genial, pero lo mejor es la historia, su tétrica ambientación y el drama particular al que te enfrenta. Si te gusta el terror oriental no te lo pienses más, este es tu videojuego.
An intelligent, thought-provoking, and extremely creepy adventure, that proves that survival horror can be more than just shooting zombies.
Despite a disappointing final act, this chilling horror story set in 1960s Taiwan burrows its way into your skull and, brilliantly, makes you anticipate the worst around every corner.
