Arcadia and old Egypt Valve style


A lackluster variation on Portals puzzle mechanics. Laser beams, companion cubes and jumping through air but far from the production values of Valve. The puzzles themselves are fairly interesting at times but the environments dull and repetitive and the minimalist story a pretentious and rather thick discussion on artificial intelligence.

Simply superb


Steam says it took me 27 hours to fully complete The Talos Principle. It was time well-spent.

It’s a very well-designed puzzle game, teeming with secrets upon secrets and many challenging optional conundrums. I have some minor nitpicks, but they’re too petty to list and all have to do with either things that could be more challenging, or some overly difficult secrets.

All in all, if you like puzzle games at all and can manage 3D FPS controls, this game is an absolute must.

Philosofical sci-fi puzzler with a surprisingly complex story


The Talos Principle (TTP) stands on the shoulders of giants. Among those being Portal, Myst, and Antichamber. That’s not to say TTP does not bring its own stock of new ideas to the table. Discovery in TTP plays a major role so the less details you know in advance, the better. Enter the world of impeccable visuals, music, and voice acting; the world full of ingenious 2D and 3D puzzles; the world with a mysterious story only revealed to you in glimpses if you care to follow them; the world of thought-provoking philosophical undertones so rare in video games; the world with tons of secrets, extra content, and Easter eggs; and finally, the world when you don’t need guns and weapons to make progress. Even if you are not a completionist, TTP will provide you with around 20 hours of gameplay. The game is extremely polished, well-tested, and rewarding and satisfying to play. I would not expect such a gem coming from the creators of Serious Frikkin’ Sam :-) This is a complete paradigm shift and I’m very glad Croteam took this turn to expand their horizons - and everyone else’s.
