Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller Episode 2: The Wise Monkey (PC Game)
Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller brings the dark horrors of Boston to light. From Phoenix Online Studios, the acclaimed developer behind The Silver Lining, this point-and-click adventure is an engrossing narrative with a truly evocative atmosphere. With story consultation by famed game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight), this is a chilling, thought-provoking mystery following Erica Reed, a Boston-based FBI agent, haunted by the unsolved case of a serial killer who took her brother’s life. With the use of Erica’s post-cognition abilities -- seeing an object’s past with a touch -- players are challenged to unravel a complex tableau of characters, plots, and puzzles over the course of four episodes. A talented cast of voice actors, breathtaking hand-drawn art, an all-star development team (including artist Romano Molenaar), and branching puzzles that have several different paths to solve the mystery, Cognition is an unforgettable adventure game experience.
Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller -- Episode Two is now available for download for $9.99 or as part of a Season Pass for $29.99, which includes all four episodes as they are released along with an exclusive Cognition digital comic. The single game and Season Pass can now be purchased at Rain Digital Games, GamersGate and GameFly .
About a month ago I posted my review for Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller - Episode 1: The Hangman and I enjoyed it so much that I couldn't wait to play episode 2.
Well like the first episode I enjoyed this game very much. Like I said it is a little different from what I usually play but I am glad I got to review this game . It is fun and the puzzles are challenging. Graphics are pretty good and voice acting are good as well.
I give Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller Episode 2: The Wise Monkey 4 out of 5
