Suicide of Rachel Foster, The

Generic Environment


I really wanted to like this game, but just could not get through it. Post Gone Home, I cannot understand how anyone could get environmental storytelling so wrong. The Suicide of Rachel Foster uses an identical game interface, you you can pickup and inspect world objects, but every interactable object of this type of one of a handful of generic everyday items with no story to tell. Instead we are told the story through cutscenes and dialogue.

FAR: Lone Sails

Too Much About the Journey


The game either needed to abandon its adventure game style or double down far more than it did.

The sailing is boring. While there’s loads that a person can do to increase efficiency and sail better, it simply does not matter as FAR is designed like an adventure game that you cannot ever fail. Do a really really bad job and waste lots of fuel, you will still get to your destination.

But it is still a great ship with loads of personality. If only the stops were fleshed out, bigger, complicated, and places you wanted to explore.

As it stands the entire game is just too easy and without any real substance. It could of been a great Syberia-like adventure, but it left out intriguing destinations to explore and engaging puzzles. It could of been a fantastic LIMBO-like, but made failure impossible and the patforming consist of walking down corridors.

A Fun Myst-like


For fans of the genre, Odyssey gets a lot of things right. While the puzzles could be said to be held back by the restriction of teaching elementary science, they do far better than many Myst-clones. It is a decent game that is only held back by a few poor puzzles and far too much reading.
