GameZone writes: "Due to its overall pace, Cryostasis may feel unacceptable to hardcore FPS players. This is unfortunate, because as problematic as much of the game can be, there's still a lot to be admired here. Graphically, the game runs nicely with excellent detail and particularly moody lighting, although some optimization is recommended for a smoother performance. The audio is even more vivid, with cracking ice and mysterious shuffling nudging the player into a steady state of alarm. The voice acting is also strong, which is especially important in a game like this, where one weak element can cause the whole product to falter. If you can handle a game that is clearly imperfect, Cryostasis is certainly worth a go. It's a short ride, so don't expect it to tide you over for too long".
