We reviewed Echo last week and found it to be an enjoyable departure from how most games make you play, even if it did start to suffer repetition by the end. We also noted that superb sound design really sets the stage.
Echo isn’t a horror game, but some excellent sound design helps to maintain the feeling of dread that the opening sets up. The low bass sounds quickly punctuate the audio with every power cycle. I wasn’t just seeing the lights go out. I was hearing it. I was feeling it. The audio does a great job at highlighting these moments as ones of importance, all while creating what seems to be an endless echo of its own through the infinite marble halls. The voice acting by En and London (her ship’s AI) are also well done, bringing life to a narrative in a relatively lifeless place.
Good luck in our Echo giveaway! We hope you enjoy the different approach that the game makes you take.
