An enticing (if sometimes uneven) action-adventure that will surprise you with an intriguing mystery and surprisingly deep characters.
Omensight is a fun fantasy romp starring fuzzy animal things. It's endearing in a way that, considering its flaws, it has no right to be. With a little more polish, this could have been a great game. As things stand now, it's still a pretty damn good one. The story kept me invested, and I found myself smiling more often than not. If you can see past the rough spots, you're in for a treat.
Omensight scratches so many itches for me. I love murder mystery games and branching, time-manipulated narratives so much.
If you're partial to a bit of hack ‘n' slashing and fancy something a little different to the norm, you'll find Omensight to be an enjoyable addition to the Switch's catalogue of ports.
Omensight is an amazing twist on the "Groundhog Day" style storyline. Some thinking and planning is necessary, but The Witch makes this easier. The gameplay is fast, fluid, and very fun. It may seem repetitive to some, but slowly learning and altering the day is part of the journey.
Any action adventure fan will have a great time with Omensight. I can't suggest it enough.
Omensight takes a lot of the ideas founded in Stories: The Path of Destinies and runs with them, successfully building on its predecessor with a very clever gameplay loop. While we doubt this repeating tale of the apocalypse will blow anyone away, Omensight is still a fine example of an interesting concept executed with style and confidence.
The makers of Omensight probably wish they had an infinite time loop of their own. Painfully repetitive and lacking in polish, this game clearly needed a bit longer in the oven. Forgiving Majora's Mask fans may find Omensight's story and action enjoyable enough, but many who buy the game will want to turn the clock back on their weekend.
Omensight is an enjoyable indie adventure with a compelling murder mystery that unravels several layers of depth and deception.
Omensight is an action-adventure murder mystery that traverses time and genres to deliver a fun and balanced game perfect for coming down from your God Of War high.
Much like Stories: Path of Destinies before it, Omensight is a title worth admiring for its bold storytelling approach and unique take on the action RPG genre. Spearhead Games had a lot of ambition in bringing together a tale of mystery and suspense and combining it with investigation elements, though much like The Harbinger's time travel abilities, there might have been some aspects of the gameplay and structure in Omensight worth rewriting.
While I cannot really recommend Omensight to everyone, fans of hack and slash games who don't mind a rigid fixed camera, or those who are truly invested in what the story has in hold can look past its faults to see the good inside of it..
I really like the story that Omensight sets out to tell, but I really wish that it was more fun to actually play. The characters and learning about their motivations made it worth seeing the game to its conclusion, but a finicky fixed camera and somewhat lacking gameplay made my playthrough less satisfying than it should have been.
Omensight is the ideal title for someone looking to solve a murder mystery wrapped in an enjoyable action-packed adventure. Although you are frequently outnumbered, you always feel in control thanks to the satisfying combat mechanics. There is one particular section in the game is beyond frustrating, but outside of that, the game's difficulty is well grounded.
Omensight attempts to combine the action of a hack and slash game, with an interesting on story-telling. While it succeeds in most areas, the game does have a few rough edges that made took my excitement level down a notch.
Omensight is certainly an interesting experience, one that comes down to how much you like story driven adventures. With each of the characters having their own goals, motivations and thoughts, there is so much more to the world than the gameplay might suggest. With only so much to do and a pretty straightforward combat experience, it quickly becomes all about the adventure, then the journey. For some this might be enough, where as those looking for better combat likely being disappointed.
If you are tired of big AAA titles and you can forgive some minor technical issues, Omensight is a title which won't waste your time.
