The Medium is a compelling exploration of duality and, at its best, effectively channels Silent Hill. But rough pacing, limited gameplay, and a disappointing ending doom the game to mediocrity.

Chris Scullion (Video Games Chronicle)

3/5 stars

“The Medium won’t give you any sleepless nights, but treat it as a paranormal thriller rather than an all-out horror game and you’ll find an interesting story (albeit a disturbing one at times) that will encourage you to push through its slightly repetitive split-screen gimmick to find out how it all ends. A short but intriguing tale.”

92/100

“A third-person horror game that’s elevated by some of the sharpest writing and acting in the genre.”

8/10

“Brilliantly paced and palpably tense, The Medium is a psychological horror adventure that’s all thriller and no filler.”
