The average score is 80/100
Polish studio The Parasight yesterday released a new game called Blacktail, which tells about the early years of Baba Yaga, and critics began to publish reviews.
According to aggregators Metacritic and Opencritic, which published 6 and 10 reviews respectively, Blacktail’s average score so far is 80 out of 1000 possible.
The following are excerpts from the reviews:
Beautiful, touching work that will stay with you long after you beat the game. Blacktail is a world worth getting lost in.
Blacktail offers so much with a strong tone throughout. While some areas could have been more polished, what we get is still fantastic.
Blacktail may not do everything right, but it’s still an enjoyable and gripping story set in a dark and beautiful fantasy world.

Blacktail doesn’t claim to be groundbreaking and most of the elements are minor compared to the genre’s hits, but overall it’s a delightfully dark, fairy tale-filled adventure that keeps you on your toes.
The first game of The Parasight impresses from the very beginning with a fairy tale atmosphere and several interesting mechanics. However, various shortcomings are revealed after some time, such as repetitive gameplay and technical issues. There’s a lot to enjoy here, but Blacktail won’t be opening at the end of the year.
