Observer takes place and memories and turns them into frightening things, dragging the player into realms of terrifying visions that stir up a nameless fear.90CGMagazine
A few minor technical flaws keep me from giving it a perfect score, but Observer is one of my favorite games in a year that has much to offer.90Destructoid
Quotation forthcoming.80Eurogamer Italy
Observer is a brilliant commingling of cyberpunk and horror. It demonstrates how interesting the game concept is and how much Bloober Team has grown.80SpazioGames
Dark, violent, visionary. Observer’s cyberpunk universe hits hard despite some too long and boring mind trips.80IGN Italia
Obscure and really paranoid first person adventure from the makers of Layers of Fear. Great atmosphere and a very dark and enjoyable story to step into.803DJuegos
Observer crushes you with its extremely rich, but deliberately disgusting environment. Here cyberpunk means garbage, ruins and dirt, and you will remember this atmosphere for a long
A brilliantly unique experience later soddened with unusual game design decisions.79RPG Fan
Observer is a great sci-fi adventure that looks goods and drags us into its world. We missed more difficulty, but other than that, it’s worth the journey.78Vandal
Great sound design, breathtaking visuals and a truly captivating story. The game is rather short at about 7-8 hours but it never fails to amaze with its creativity during that time.90FakeHaouken

Negative Comment(s)

Before it resorts to some rather cliched horror tropes, Observer is a gritty, oppressive cyberpunk nightmare. [Issue#266, p.60]70PC PowerPlay
Observer starts out as a quirky cyberpunk thriller that tries to play a lot mindgames with you. But it gets predictable after a
Brainhacking will blow your mind, but you’ll want to get the cop out of your head by the end.45PC Gamer
A splendid hybrid of CSI, cyberpunk and Silent Hill woven around a potent central performance, spoiled a bit by unconvincing scare tactics. [Recommended]0Eurogamer
This is a horror game? The Bloober Team has created another boring walking simulator. They started destroying my eyes as well as frustrating.0pizzastation
don’t mix politics and games, how do you treat us the way we treat you, now I know what kind of company you are and how you deal with players, I will never buy your games again0Lumic
Felt cheaply made, cypberpunk effects are over the top with annoying effects everywhere. Didn’t play for long.40hoanns
Great game, great graphics, great cyberpunka climat. I have lot of fun playing observer70GoodMorningAss
I mean, to be honest, this game is a walking simulator which makes me sick. The illumination feels the game developer just chuck every filter in a unity plugin into the game. It is a harsh game.0rogerxman
