Layers of Fear

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Layers of Fear was never particularly good to begin with, and while the visuals are impressive, the game’s foundation remains shaky.

Game Info

Layers of Fear is a first-person psychedelic horror chronicle focused on tense exploration and immersive storytelling – a new game built upon the foundations of Layers of Fear, LOF: Inheritance, and Layers of Fear 2 with a surprising new story and gameplay direction. All stories must come to an end, even twisted and eerie ones. The canvas. The stage. The novel. This narrative-focused psychological horror experience is ready for its final brushstrokes, its curtain call, its final chapter. Are you ready to return and face your fears one last time?

6/10

Layers of Fear is an atmospheric tour through the shattered psyches of some seriously tortured artists, but predictable shock tactics fail to provide more than a handful of genuine scares, let alone layers of them.

90/100

Beautiful, horrifying, and impressively updated through the power of Unreal Engine 5, Layers of Fear is a deft upgrade for two horror gems.

5/10

Bloober Team’s horror series is reimagined from the ground up, but the foundation still feels shaky.
