Unheard Review

  • by

I love this game! You have to solve crimes while only hearing the audio, but you can hear all the audio on a crime scene. It has easy to get achievements, but please don’t look up guides or playthroughs! 3h to 100% and no missable achievements.


I never start my reviews with tips, but for this game, I have two tips that I find important enough to start with them. The first tip is, watch out with reading reviews and watching playthroughs on youtube. They can very easily contain spoilers and that would make the game less fun to play. Try it out for yourself, it is worth it! The second tip is to use headphones, which work so much better than speakers in this game.

Approximate amount of time to 100%: 2.5-3hours
Estimated achievement difficulty: 2/10
Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
Is there a good guide available: Yes, but don’t use it till you have played through the game yourself, that way you don’t ruin the experience. There are good guides on the steam guide section for this game.
Multiplayer achievements: No
Missable achievements: No, this game has chapter selection after you finish it. Very easy to mop up the achievements you’ve missed.
Grinding Achievements: No
DLC-Only achievements: No
Time-gated achievements: No
RNG-achievements: No
Does difficulty affect achievements: No difficulty setting available
Unobtainable/glitched achievements: No

Wow, this game was an amazing experience. I was hooked after chapter 1 already and still had 4 more to go! I’ll put this game on my list of games I really love on my curator page 😀

In this game you’ll have to solve crime cases, you can hear what has been said in every room and have to figure out what happened or who did what. There are a total of 5 cases, the first starts as an easy tutorial, after that there will be much more characters in each level and with that much more to investigate, which is a lot of fun!

Before I started playing this game I was afraid it would be extra difficult because English is not my native language. The game has really good voice actors for the English voices and I had no problem at all with understanding the stories in this game.

One tip for achievement hunters: When you first start a chapter, don’t move the audio forward or backward, just keep it running and listen, you can walk around freely. That way you don’t have to go back to just listen to the audio for a simple achievement.
