Wick Review

What starts as a fun little game turns into a living nightmare. Wick starts with a group of camping teenagers. You are amongst them and for some reason, you are wearing a blindfold. They tell the story of how a bunch of kids were caught in a house fire, but were never found afterwards. The kids currently haunt the forest that you are in. You are told to survive the night until six o’clock. When the game starts, you remove your blindfold. You find yourself in the middle of the forest with a candle sitting on the ground in front of you. You pick it up and start walking through the forest.


Over time, the candle in your hand will run out. There are other candles spread throughout the woods, indicated by blinking lights in the distance. As you wonder through, you see what appear to be different landmarks spread around the woods. These include a sign and what looks like a crashed boat. When you find the first landmark, you see a vision of a kid with a mask-like face. He appears for a second, then he disappears. This kid continues to stalk you throughout the woods. He will either appear directly in front of you, giving you time to run away, or jump out from somewhere and immediately attacks you. When he gets you, he pins you to the ground and beats you to death. If you run out of candle light, he will attack more frequently.


I found the game very enjoyable to play. The kid starts to get annoying after a while, but it’s still pretty fun to play. I even played the game on the highest graphics and it ran perfectly fine. You can also set the controls to whatever you want. The only thing I will say is that I feel that the whole “survive the night until six a.m.” thing is a little overused. This has been used all throughout the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise. I don’t think we need to see it any more than that. Other than that, I really enjoyed the game. All the sounds and music make you feel like you are in genuine danger, too.
