'A Plague Tale' does everything right. It looks and sounds great, the controls are perfect, your player character (Amicia) is genuinely heroic, and the story and characters make you care. I'm not sure why there was so little buzz about this game back in 2019. I only played it when it became free on PS+ and didn't even know, going in, that it is an exploration, action, stealth game. I played for free but it is absolutely worthy of a full price purchase. I look forward to the sequel.
This game was such a surprise! It did not seem like anything I would normally play. It was very linear, conflict was best avoided, and stealth and patience was the dominating methods to completing this. But, this game was just so engrossing. I loved every second and my only gripe is there isn't more to it.
Actually played on Ubuntu
The first part is excellent, then it slowly becomes worse. Still not bad, so overall great game. The soundtrack is a banger.
I'm kind of unhappy about this game, because it had so much potential, and it really showed, but then it almost let go. I really hope they improve in the sequel, even though I'm not that hopeful.
I did a 2nd playthrough in french, and it was much more immersive. I kinda liked it a bit more.
