Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller - Episode 3: The Oracle PC game review

Reed Thriller, continues today with Episode 3: The Oracle for PC and Mac. This chilling continuation of a psychic FBI agent's hunt for a serial killer can be downloaded from and other online stores. The 4-part Cognition series will conclude in late summer with Episode 4: The Cain Killer.

Cognition's third episode picks up right where the last left off, with a body hurtling down the Enthon Towers' 33 stories to smash onto a parked police cruiser. When Erica arrives at the scene her postcognitive powers kick into overdrive, presenting her with powerful visions of past murders and betrayals that occurred in this mysterious luxury apartment building. As Erica discovers more about the serial killer who's baiting her, she realizes that she's not the only one having visions. Now the only way to stop the Oracle is to step into the killer's shoes.

In this unique game, player control alternates between FBI agent and killer as Erica pieces together the past events that led to this moment. Before it's all over, players will make a series of gruesome
discoveries regarding the case Erica most wants to solve: the murder of her own brother. With the same graphic novel art style, Fringe-like paranormal themes, and Saw-style horror sequences that
the Cognition series has been heralded for since its debut last fall, The Oracle is a must-play adventure that builds to an unexpected and wrenching climax.

At, The Oracle sells for $9.99 individually, or in Season Pass bundles that allow players to catch up on the rest of the series at discounted prices. For one day only, Phoenix is offering the following special deals:

I have reviewed all the previous parts of this game and very much like this game. It is fun and the puzzles are challenging. I have gotten a little frustrated with some of the puzzles but after a while I finally was able to finish Episode 3.  Just like the other 2 episodes, the graphics and voice acting are pretty good. I now can't wait to play the last episode of this game.

If you haven't played Cognition:An Erica Reed Thriller yet I highly recommend it.

I give this 4 out of 5
