A Plague Tale: Innocence has dropped a free trial (or demo if you prefer). This will allow you to take on the whole first chapter of the game and experience a little bit of the mechanics and world. There are light puzzles to solve and slings to shot in combat. Stealth is a must and provides some very tense moments. The full trip with Hugo and Amicia De Rune is full of emotional ups and downs, but it’s never boring. And then there’s the rats, which are creepy and deadly. I could go on, but our own Max is far more eloquent and thorough in his review than I could ever be.
If you like the game, it’s included in Europe’s Platinum Weekend sale, so you can grab it for a discount. If you are in the U.S., keep shopping around. It’s on sale periodically, and you might really dig it.
The only thing I would say for certain is that A Plague Tale: Innocence is more than worth a try, especially at the low, low cost of free.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
