The Last Door: Collectors Edition - An Adventure that will creep you out! [REVIEW]

Even though The Game Kitchen hadn't sent us a review code for The Last Door: Collectors Edition, I was able to purchase a copy for myself and I'll tell you straight out, I'm glad I did. This is one of the creepiest and yet most enjoyable Adventure titles I have played this year so far. From the very start you are pulled into a dark and horrific story of tragedy and suffering and it just doesn't let you go!

Although the graphics are not what you expect of a newly released Adventure title, it really doesn't matter. Because it not only fits the game with it's pixelated backgrounds and character details, it feels just like a Sierra title. From the dark underground cellar to the outside landscape with crows looking through your very soul, there's no love and light in this game!

Regarding the puzzles they are just right, they are neither too hard or nor too easy. With simple tasks such as using a cloth and chemicals to wipe paint for the next part to be achieved, yes that's a small hint for you gamers!

Sound quality is also top notch and this is where the game really excels, you'll hear crows tapping at the window to water dripping in the cellar all accompanied by a horror movie like soundtrack. In certain areas the sound is so well placed it will make you jump 5 feet out of your chair. 

The Story is also spot on, it's as if the developers read every single dark novel and put it directly through their game, it just pulls you in. You'll want to know what happens next, you'll want to know why there has been so much suffering, it's a book you don't want to put down till 2am.

I myself have completed chapter 1 and now onto chapter 2, and yet already I can't wait till chapter 3. You'll see why this game was a Kickstarter success and why people have voted this straight through Steam Greenlight. It's a game you just have to have in your collection, a true Adventure horror title of which I'm glad to have played.

The Last Door Collector's Edition is available to buy for PC (Windows, Mac and Linux) on: Steam, GOG, Desura, Gamefly, GamersGate, Phoenix Online Store, Zodiak, GreenMan Gaming, Mac Game Store,
