Introduction

The Call of Cthulhu game is a horror-themed adventure game based on the stories from the horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. The game was created by Danish developer Headfirst Productions and released in 2005. The game is available for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the Nintendo DS.

Call of Cthulhu is a first-person, adventure, investigation game with RPG elements. The game is based on the popular tabletop RPG of the same name, and is a new take on the Cthulhu Mythos, the horror from beyond space, time and sanity.

Gameplay

The player has to solve puzzles, explore different areas, and uncover the town's secrets to save the protagonist's sanity and uncover the town's dark past. The protagonist is a private detective who is sent to investigate a strange case in a town called Innsmouth that has been cut off from the rest of the world. The player can explore the town in a non-linear fashion and find the clues to solve the mystery.

Gameplay is the main part of any game, but in Call of Cthulhu, gameplay is the only part of the game. This game is meant to be played in a single sitting, which means that there is no real replayability, and that once you beat the game, there is nothing to do other than to play it again.

Graphics

The graphics are deliberately old-fashioned to emphasize the Lovecraftian mood. The graphics in Call of Cthulhu are very well done and are some of the best graphics in the RPG genre. The game is altogether a very dark game, and the graphics make it even darker. The graphics are like a painting, which is a very strange thing to say about a game, but nonetheless, they are very well done.

Replayability

The game has multiple endings and the player can explore the game's different events in different orders.

The replayability in Call of Cthulhu is very low, as the game can only be played once, and is pretty much the same every time. The game is meant to be played in a single sitting, and once you beat it, there is nothing to do other than to beat it again.

Controls

The controls in Call of Cthulhu are very simple, and are laid out very well. The controls are very simple, and the only complicated thing about them is that they are not very intuitive. The controls are not difficult in any way, with the exception of the keyboard controls, which are not intuitive.

Conclusion

The Call of Cthulhu game is an intense horror-adventure game that is inspired by the stories of the horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. The game is available for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the Nintendo DS. The game is nonlinear and offers multiple endings and exploration paths. 

Call of Cthulhu is a well-made game, with great graphics and gameplay. The replayability is low, as the game is very linear, and is meant to be played in a single sitting. If you are looking for a game with many replay abilities, this is not the game for you.

Pros:
  • It's a great game for people who enjoy horror and suspense
  • The game also has RPG elements
  • It has an overall good storyline
  • The game is full of originality and creativity.
Cons:
  • The game can be fairly difficult
