[Beyond PlayStation] Interrogation: You will be deceived Review | PS4Blog.net
Do you have what it takes to be able to tell who is lying and who is telling the truth? Are you ready to risk the safety of the whole city based on a hunch? Check out our Interrogation: You will be deceived review!
In Interrogation: You will be deceived from Mixtvision and Critique Gaming, which is Rated M for Mature on Nintendo Switch, you will take on the role of a police detective who must manage a police unit as you try to find the best way to deal with a terrorist group that calls itself The Liberation Front, that is wreaking havoc in the city. How far will you go to protect the city and its citizens? Does the end justify the means? Interrogation: You will be deceived is a narrative-driven simulation experience, and due to its nature, there’s plenty of repay value for this one.
You’re on a tight schedule and have a limited budget, so you need to manage how you spend every second of the day, as you also work on dealing with the press that is always looking for the “next big thing” to report. Your job will require you to interrogate suspects – hence the name of the game. You must pay attention to who they are and what motivates them, so that you can know what your course of action will be. Will you try to intimidate them? Or would it be best to a bit of empathy.
There are three different difficulties you can choose from when starting a run in Interrogation: You will be deceived. For Visual Novel mode, you’ll be able to take a bit more time to explore the game’s story, since the conversational side of things will be dialed back a bit as you focus on managing your police unit. Detective Mode is the standard difficulty setting, with a moderately challenging experience to take on. And then we have Interrogation Challenge, which will require you to give it your all during the interrogation segments, because any mistakes you make will cost you!
Before you take on the game proper, you’ll be going through a training sequence in which you’ll be interrogating a subject who is a trainer actor that will remain fully in character during the interview, to give you an idea of what you’ll be dealing with during the actual interrogation segments for this one. This is where you’ll learn how before you question someone, you should review their file to gain some crucial insight into the case, so that you
can identify the information that you need for that particular sequence.
When interrogating someone, you can review a subject’s pupil dilation to get an idea of how open a subject is to talking about that particular situation. There will also be a pulse meter on the right side of the screen that will allow you to know how scared a subject is. As expected, the quicker the heart rate, the more scared a subject will be. Your actions and the dialogue choices you make during the interrogation will have an effect on these meters, and it’s up to you to do what is needed to get the information – or confession – that you need.
You can use the Nintendo Switch’s touchscreen to control the game when in Portable or Tabletop Mode, or when playing on a Nintendo Switch Lite. There’s going to be a lot of reading in this one, so you’ll be pressing the A button to move from dialogue box to dialogue box. The Y button will allow you to review the case file, which will bring up a folder with pages you can read to learn about the case’s numbers, where the incident occurred, as well as what has happened. You can zoom in with the Y button, changing pages with the L and R buttons, or by pressing left or right on the left analog stick or the D-Pad when you’re not zoomed in.
If you want to stop the recorder that is tracking your questioning, you can do so with the X button, which will… open up other options for you. Sure, the fact that the recording stopped for no apparent reason will bring up a lot of questions when the case goes to court, but sometimes when the going gets though, the though get going. Add sometimes having to question subjects on a timer, or having to juggle interrogating more than one individual at a time, switching between interrogation rooms with the L and R buttons, and you’re in for a hectic time that might need you to do things you wouldn’t usually feel comfortable doing.
You’ll have a series of statements you can make during interrogation, with one of them being for making the suspect confess to the whole thing – something that can’t be used right away, nor should be used for all scenarios. There’s going to be a sequence you’ll have to find, based on the subject’s background and how you can push some of their buttons to get some extra information. When you find a new line of questioning, it will show up on the left side of the screen, allowing you to pursue it to hopefully find the next one in the sequence.
Interrogation: You will be deceived is an interesting narrative-driven game with a dash of puzzle solving on top, that will task you with finding all you can about a terrorist group that is radicalizing a ton of people around the city. It’s overall premise, gameplay mechanics, and
