Pros

  • Great use of dualsense haptic feedback.
  • Visuals are eerie and look great on PS5.

Cons

  • Game takes too long to get interesting.
  • WHY CAN’T I RUN AT THE START OF THE GAME?
  • Controls feel like I’m playing Layers of Fear and not a third person game.
  • The dual screen aspect is interesting, but headache inducing.

In Summary

The Medium is a game that fans of games like Silent Hill think they will want to check out, but after a little bit of time with it, they will realize that they’re better off playing other games. The core gameplay element of being in two places at once was headache-inducing for me, and as people on stream saw I got mad that they held off the ability to run until about 40 minutes into the game. I get adding tension but that creates frustration and not tension. If this game is below $20 I’d recommend giving it a try, but stay away at full price.
