The Lovecraftian universe is very popular - no wonder there are so many games based on this well-written and spooky world. Logically, most of these projects are heavily skewed toward the horror genre, but Call of Cthulhu is more like a thriller-detective with rare elements of true horror.
The game is set at the beginning of the 20th century, after the First World War. The atmosphere of this wonderful time of pre-industrial old Europe is impressive and is not lost on the atmosphere of Lovecraftian - in terms of entourage there is a perfect balance.
The gameplay will be interesting primarily to fans of unhurried adventures - the action here is a minimum, the accent is strongly shifted to the story and the detective component. Since the developers belong to the category B, the project can not boast a brilliant technical characteristics - graphics, smooth animation and physics of objects. But thanks to the genre affiliation and unhurried gameplay this is not conspicuous.
The game's advantages:

On the contrary, this approach allowed the studio to take more risks, put more original ideas in the project and not to fill it with heavy mechanics, which are obligatory for modern games.
Thanks to these features, Call of Cthulhu may become a great recreation for you between big walkthroughs that require the player to spend at least a hundred hours on full-fledged exploration.
