Review: As Dusk Falls is an engaging story let down by its mechanics

Strong character performances and an interesting story are undercut by terrible controls and an ill-fitting art style

Review: As Dusk Falls is an engaging story let down by its mechanics

Good characters, strong performances and well-engineered dual timeline storytelling are let down by pacing that’s utterly arhythmic and gameplay that’s fighting you at every step. 

  • Strong character performances
  • Dual timeline story works well
  • Terrible, sluggish controls
  • Art style ruins the action
  • Inconsistent pacing
  • Some melodramatic dialogue
