    [​IMG]A Masquerada: Songs and Shadows review on COG:

    Masquerada: Songs and Shadows Review Masquerada: Songs and Shadows is a linear RPG that impresses with its strong narrative. While it lacks major customization or exploration, the voice acting lends a level of authenticity that helps make you care and become invested in the Citte della Ombre and its inhabitants. You play as Cicero Gavar, an exile returning from whence he came, and you've been tasked with investigating a kidnapping. Of course, the plot thickens quickly as more beneath the surface comes to light.
    [...]
    That being said, there is very little to no replay value. Masquerada costs a bit less than half the price of a AAA title, and you'll certainly get a fair amount of play hours, but once you're done, you're done. A good story is a good story, but this book felt like it could remain shut once it was finished. For the price, this is absolutely worth your time if you're a big RPG fan or really dig the art style. If linear gameplay and combat that's decent at best don't sound like your idea of a good time, look elsewhere. Masquerada: Songs and Shadows tends to fit a niche that is a classic staple of video games.

    The Good
    • Beautiful art style
    • Great voice acting
    • Intriguing story
    The Bad
    • Linear
    • Mediocre combat
    • No replayability
    Score: 7.5
