The limited Day One Edition includes:

  • The Investigator Pack. To help you on your adventure, get an exclusive private investigator outfit, permanent access to a first aid kit and antipsychotics as well as an initial supply of crafting resources.
  • A map of Oakmont.
PLUNGE INTO THE MURKY WATERS OF A DANGEROUS INVESTIGATION INSPIRED BY THE MASTER OF HORROR,
H.P. LOVECRAFT.

The Sinking City is an adventure and investigation game set in an open world inspired by the universe of H.P. Lovecraft, the master of Horror. The game was developed by Frogwares, a studio that has won many awards for the Sherlock Holmes
series. Half-submerged, Oakmont is in the grips of supernatural forces. You are a detective, and you have to uncover the truth of what has possessed the city… and the minds of its inhabitants.

  • High replay value thanks to an open investigation system: each case can be solved in a number of ways and has different possible endings depending on what you do.
  • An arsenal of weapons from the 1920s with which to take on nightmarish creatures.
  • Manage your mental health to untangle the truth behind the madness.

This looks amazing
Definitely on the radar... Just not at £37.

Same here. Intrigued but it looks like a max £20 job to me.
Very negative press reviews - avoid
Similar to Vampyr?

There's several 7-8/10 as well, seems like quite an acquired taste.
Looks quite janky, but a definite buy when it gets in to the £20 range. Heat for the price though.

I tend not to really care what review sites say, they are kinda useless, as the Days Gone reviews showed. There are a couple of YouTube reviewers who are trustworthy, and then there are gameplay videos to go on.

Ultimately they're just someone's opinion. Numerical scores aren't that important, just a guide. I've loved playing games with 60 or 70% and been bored to tears by games with 90%+.

The crazy thing is that when it is ~£20 the game will most likely provide a better experience after a few patches, hopefully anyway.

In an ideal world they are just someone's opinion with the qualification that the reviewer attempts to be as objective as possible. However, contemporary review sites like Kotaku and Polygon, and increasingly Gamespot and IGN, are ideologically driven.

As far as those YouTube reviewers I mentioned go, they are trustworthy because they do not reduce their reviews down to numerical scores (while also avoiding ideological or overly subjective reviews), but instead spend 10-15 mins not only telling you about the game, but showing you some of it too. I find this a much better way of deciding if I will buy a game near launch or not.
