Paradise Lost Review

Paradise Lost is set in a Post-Apocalyptic world in the year 1980, you play as Szymon who had recently lost his mother and with only a picture of a man who you believed knew her to guide you through an abandoned Nazi bunker, solve little puzzles while the music and overall vibe of the game keeps you on edge.

Once again Unreal Engine proves that the graphic quality they bring to us gamers is top-shelf quality and they certainly did not disappoint with this game, as you get flashbacks from when you were still living with your mother it helps to piece together the story as you progress through the bunker.

What initially felt like a game that just wants to give you a jump scare you get so attached to the story that you cannot help but to continue playing and complete the story.

You will find notes from the people that used to live in this underground bunker that does not just give you a better idea of how the war was like but also helps sometimes to uncover what is needed to pass the obstacle in front of you because you are not able to use any mechanics besides interactions and walking it encourages one to take your time with the game instead of jumping over a wall or debris that might be in your way.

The further you get with the story the more interesting it becomes and to end the game they leave you with a hard decision which answered several questions I had and gave the story a great ending.

Final Thoughts: Always excited for a game when I saw Unreal Engine being utilized this one was certainly not a disappointment, at a stage some players might only continue playing the game because of the story and not for the actual game, but with a very satisfying ending to the game answering so many questions one might have.


  • You can decide on the ending
  • Great audio and video quality
  • Keeps you on edge with the general feel of the game
  • Satisfying ending


  • Some players might only continue playing the game for the story and not due to the game being fun
  • Some players might get frustrated with the limited mechanics available to the player
