In this point & click adventure, take on the role of FBI agent Erica Reed, with an uncanny talent to see the past and piece together how a crime unfolded. But not even this sixth sense could save her younger brother, Scott, from a brutal serial killer. Three years later, the investigation into Scott’s murder has gone cold -- but Erica’s work has only just begun. But now a new serial killer is loose in Boston -- one who seems to be leaving deliberate clues that only Erica, with her unique post-cognitive abilities, can uncover. Is she finally on her way to solving Scott’s murder? Or, blinded by vengeance, is she falling into a trap that could cost Erica her life? Developed by Phoenix Online Studios (the team who made the King’s Quest spin-off The Silver Lining), with contributions from veteran game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter) and comic book artist Romano Molenaar (Batman, X-Men, The Darkness), Cognition is a thrilling adventure that grips you and won’t let go.

I don't know where to start...Cognition really impressed me a lot!
Great stylish graphics, I love it! Great dialogs with awesome voice acting especially Erica's Reed! Great logic of all actions which is a lot, it gives to a player really deep feeling of true investigation work. Gameplay time is also great.

The game is solid.
The art and story holds up pretty well.
Nice to play, and just right to pick up the gameplay
I am horrible at adventure games, and do not like them mostly
but I am happy I got this one on a bundle.
Devs deserve my rep+
One thing I would change:
There are quick events on the game, but they are based on
interacting just like any other part of the game, with stuff on screen
replace those quick events with push-buttons on an order and
rhythm , that would make them much better.
There are some few graphical glitches on using items sometimes,
but i did not take those into account for the review, since those
are secondary to me.
Good game overall.
Petty with adventuer games is the no replay value,
bun since the price tag is low, I find it perfect, so
it fits on the product as a whole


Good grafics, good soundtrack, great story, loved it! :)

Good story, love the music and game style :)

The game have too much boring parts, the action itself is not the great in this adventure game, the thriller in itself the game its not that good too because the mystery its not THAT mystery you just collect items to unlock some parts of the game and this parts arent even in the main plot itself. The second episode have some feelings that can be good, but they had a very bad beggining with this episode...

Interesting story, great attention given to every animation, Valve is stupid for not Greenlighting this.

I love this adventure. Well made story, Great music, inspiring game mood... etc.

Don't miss this game, if you are a fan of classic adventures.


This is an amazing game worthy of a 10/10 rating! The storyline and art are fantastic, but what really sets it apart from most others is the gameplay! Once you get used to how things work you will find yourself playing for hours without even noticing the time go by. I love the fact that finally a team has come up with a great point and click adventure that doesn't rely on cheap puzzles to solve, but rather a true murder mystery to solve! Please keep this series alive by making more like this!

Excellent polished episodic content from a well experienced team. Great community involvement and love for the game.
