In Atomic Heart, you take the role of a government special agent in charge of finding out what's behind all this, and as soon as you arrive at your destination you start thinking that it may be too much for you. The game offers you exciting gameplay mechanics and brutal fights against deranged biomechanical monstrosities, and it hooks you with its intriguing plot and unique atmosphere.
