Evil Nun: The Broken Mask from Carlos Coronado, Keplerians, and Feardemic is a first-person horror escape experience on PlayStation 5. You arrive at a rather creepy location by taxi, and as soon as you get out, the driver pulls a dangerous U-turn and almost runs you over. As you approach what seems to be a ticket booth, a man with a look of horror quickly hides. You barely manage to turn around and see how Sister Madeline – the game’s evil nun – prepares to swing at you with her huge hammer. When you wake up, you’re in a room inside of the school and must now find a way to escape.

Evil Nun: The Broken Mask Review - 1

The game can be played in one of five difficulty settings: Ghost, Easy, Normal, Difficult, and Extreme. When playing in Ghost, the evil Sister Madeline won’t be able to see or hear you, she’ll walk at normal speed, and can’t kill you. It’s basically there to allow you to see and experience the game without fearing the nun will catch you. When playing on Easy, Sister Madeline will walk slowly, items will make less noise when you drop them, and she’s not going to be very smart.

 

If you decide to play in Normal, you’ll get the standard gaming experience for Evil Nun. Sister Madeline will have normal hearing and sight, and she’ll be a smart opponent to overcome. If you bump things up to Difficult, then Sister Madeline will walk at a much faster pace, she’ll have excellent hearing and sight and will be extra clever. And then, there’s the Extreme difficulty setting. For this one, you’ll need to be very good at completing objectives while making as little noise as possible because Sister Madeline will do whatever it takes to destroy you.

Since the game is played from a first-person perspective, you’ll control your character with the left analog stick as you look around with the right one. You can interact with objects by pressing the R1 button. When you pick something up, you can drop it by pressing the L1 button… which can end up making a lot of noise, thus catching Sister Madeline’s attention. You can crouch with the L2 button, which can help you cross through some of the vents you’ll find. You will find some hiding spots here and there where you can try to escape from Sister Madeline.

 

If you see a glowing hand somewhere, be sure to interact with it. This will provide you with a clue so that you can start to learn more about how you can outsmart Sister Madeline and escape before she manages to see you and slams you with her hammer. By pressing the Circle button, you’ll be able to check your quest log, which will let you know what general objectives you need to complete to have a chance to escape from this forsaken summer school.

And once you manage to escape through the front door, a new potential ending route will open up for you. You’ll get a cutscene of another nun driving a van. She exits the van and drops a set of clothes at the laundry. Once that’s over, you’ll be told there’s a new ramp you can take to access a new area of the school and a new way for you to escape. Will you be smart and fast enough to find a way to make it to the van unseen so that you can leave the school for good?

 

Trophy-wise, the game, unfortunately, does not have a full trophy list for you to work on. It does have a long trophy list with 27 Bronze trophies, 5 Silver, and 4 Gold trophies. Since there are different endings for you to achieve, several of the trophies will be tied to getting each ending. On top of that, you’ll also have to escape through the main door while playing on the two highest difficulty settings, escape from the school in less than 5 minutes, and complete some miscellaneous objectives I won’t spoil here.

Evil Nun: The Broken Mask Review - 4
