Focus Home Interactive’s latest game to release is the story-driven game titled A Plague Tale: Innocence. From early reviews, it looks likes the game is performing well pretty well with critics.

Developer Asobo Studio managed to create a world filled with dread and fear paired that with a great story and to top it off with responsive gameplay and you got a great title on your hand!

A Plague Tale: Innocence is a late-generation gem that shouldn’t be missed by anyone with even a passing interest.
 
PlayStation Universe
90
With its well-designed stealth mechanics, unique setting, captivating story and stifling, often terrifying atmospherics, in Innocence: A Plague Tale, Asobo Studio might well have crafted the best and most pure horror title of the year.

DualShockers

A Plague Tale’s linear story is immediately compelling and gripping.

GameSpot
80
Powerfully ghoulish depictions of the plague and rats aside, Innocence is ultimately an emotive story of resilience against harrowing odds.

IGN
70
A Plague Tale: Innocence has a great story, but the gameplay has a level of convenience that undercuts the perilous world.

The Jimquisition

A Plague Tale: Innocence is the best game I’ve played this year. Easily the best. A stealth game with puzzle elements and a hearty dose of horror, A Plague Tale may turn heads with its killer rat swarms, but the real star is the great writing and character portrayals. This is something special.
