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 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.
Omensight is an enjoyable indie adventure with a compelling murder mystery that unravels several layers of depth and deception.
