A Plague Tale: Innocence features an interesting narrative set within the backdrop of a bleak time in human history. You often felt tension when encountering hordes of infested rats or the well-equipped soldiers search for Amicia and Hugo. The relationship between these two siblings starts rough but builds into something worth exploring. While the stealth and combat sections don’t do anything new, they are there to push the narrative where it needs to go. Furthermore, the rats are horrifying and watching them scurry or devour a corpse leaves a lasting impression. A Plague Tale: Innocence is exemplary and recommended.
