SXO: Call of Cthulhu is as gripping as it is atmospheric. Cyanide has delivered a truly horrific world and an incredible story that fans of the mythos will absolutely love. Mechanically it gets a bit lost between the skill trees, the decisions, the fears and the sanity. It is never quite clear how certain choices shape your destiny and a lot of the decisions you make don’t seem to matter as there is always other ways around them. Luckily, the atmosphere, the story and the setting are a wonder to be in. If nothing else, this game is a reminder to leave that old dusty book alone unless you want to be looking into the inconceivable dimension.
