Reception[edit]

On Metacritic, the series holds an average score of 58 (out of 100 points) based on 21 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[15] Review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported that 11 of 19 critical responses were negative, averaging a 42% rating. The site's consensus reads: "Competent acting and a sufficiently intriguing premise aren't enough to make up for Game of Silence's unnecessarily convoluted, heavily clichéd storytelling."[16]
