What. A. Ride.

That was AMAZING. I just finished playing Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins, and it was PERFECT. I’m a huge fan of the show, and my favorite episode is Blink, so this was right up my alley.
It took me two days to play the game, so it has a lot of play-time (although I secretly wish it had been longer).
I love how it brought back some of our favorite character (Osgood!! And Larry!) from Doctor Who but added some new, interesting characters.
It is so well-written and so well put together. I’ve tried some of the Doctor Who games in the past and I just was never impressed. This is incredible and well-worth the price.
I love the idea of a “found phone” game and this one executes it flawlessly. I honestly felt like I was present in a Doctor Who episode—my dream come true! So thank you for that!
Overall, it was just FUN. I even screamed once with one of the jump scares! At the end, it tells you what you accomplished, and what parts you missed, so now I have reason to give it a second play-through! Loved it!

Such a great game, but one major setback

Okay so this game is absolutely amazing. The graphics are great and so is the story. But, I haven’t been able to finish it because it keeps crashing. At first I thought it was fine, but it got to the point to when it crashed it didn’t save my previous data and I had to start all over again. For example, when I had to piece the ‘fragments’ together and delete them so that the weeping angel would be out of the phone. The first two times I tried, it glitched and crashed, causing me to have to start over. The third time I FINALLY made it through deleting the fragments and right as I was done. . .it crashed and I had to start over. Super frustrating.
Overall this is a good game, but I wish it didn’t delete what I already did. (I also am on a really good device, so that probably doesn’t have anything to do with it)

As a die hard fan of the show, I was enthralled in the thrilling story. While people who have seen the show might find some of the plot twists quite predictable, that didn’t detract from the experience whatsoever. I found myself completely immersed in a gripping story. The puzzles are very clever, and the tension feels very real. This game is not for the faint of heart, as I found myself screaming at some of the jump scares. I do wish it had been a bit longer, as I was able to complete it in under 2 days. The way all of the clues come together at the end is brilliant. Definitely worth the money.
