While Cognition’s gameplay certainly keeps you engaged, a lot can be said of its style and presentation. The artistic graphic-novel inspired graphics are clear and colorful which help to bring out the details in the environments that you are searching for clues. The dialogue is also fully voiced, which is a great touch for a game with such an emphasis on its story. Cognition’s fantastic sense of atmosphere lures you into its dark adventure and keeps you guessing at every twist and turn. Make no mistake, although Cognition’s bright and artistic art style may suggest otherwise, this is not a story for the faint of heart.
