I love the Cognition adventure game series, at once both modern and classic, with great stories, well written characters and dialogue, choices with consequences, and some of the worst fake Boston accents ever! You play as Erica Reed, FBI detective who starts off solving a deep, intriguing mystery involving your twin brother, using Erica’s special powers to uncover the mystery!
In my review of the third Chapter I said:
But what really gets you is the narrative style – you are slowly drawn in and then PLOT TWIST! And another plot twist … and another! But it isn’t just sensational twists and turns, it is how you are drawn into the fully realized characters that really intrigues me.
My review of the finale is still in progress, but suffice to say it is another excellent entry and presents a satisfying conclusion. The games play on Mac or PC, come with a prequel comic and soundtrack. Also, it is worth noting that legendary designer Jane Jensen (responsible for the Gabriel Knight and Gray Matter games) is the designer for the Cognition series.
