Amanda French writes: "Tormentum: Dark Sorrow is a powerful, haunting, and surreal world that manages to create a sense of unease in the player without a whole lot of posturing. If you'd like my full thoughts on the game, see my review, but here I will endeavor to provide guidance for it. Tormentum already provides in-game hints for many of its puzzles, but that doesn't completely eliminate the challenge. Key items can be missed, puzzles can still be confusing, and what about those moral choices? I should note that a major part of Tormentum's experience is the kind of choices you make. When playing the game naturally, some of the choices seem less clear. Reading this guide, however, could lessen the impact of the story for you by removing that state of uncertainty."
