You play as Ellis, an ex-cop who has a troubled past and is currently looking for a missing kid in Black Hills Forest with his trusty canine companion Bullet but what started as an ordinary investigation has soon turned into a nightmare for them.

Apparently, there is some mystical force at work that is haunting these forest grounds and you are forced to face your fears as you continue until you eventually face the witch but then it is just your distorted sanity against her curse.

Everything surround you will play out depending on your decisions and that even includes how you choose to treat your pet buddy. Whether you want to pet the dog and cheer him up with treats or try to discipline him is totally up to you.

There are a number of totems you come across that Bullet is afraid of but you need not to destroy them though. Players can also choose not to answer cell phone or walkie-talkie at times and contact others when deem necessary.

Although there are no decision wheels or dialogue options to be found within entire game, it has several alternative endings. This definitely is a different approach to how choices work in games and makes your journey more immersive.

The more you go deep into woods, situation will get intense and reaction to danger will determine where things will go next. Whatever you will act up on instinct will sum up your fate and shape a natural course of the story.

Despite not being a combat oriented title, there are confrontations with monstrous creatures inside the forest and using flashlight would be a great way to drive them away or turn on your camcorder night vision to be sneaky.

Blair Witch easily is one of the best psychological horror game ever made and Bloober Team has really worked hard to make sure of that. Other than retail purchase, the game is also available on Xbox Game Pass for PC and Xbox One.
