Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Eary isolated landscape
The game really pushes this aspect of isolation well thanks to the graphics in the game and showing a featureless landscape. This creates immersion into the story and setting of the game.
Pro Simple mechanics
Focus more on aesthetics and atmosphere than any complex controls, which makes the games mechanics easy to understand and control.
Con Hints make the game too easy
While the included hint system may be nice for those that get stuck in the game it does destroy the wandering aspect of the title if used too often, which makes the game a lot easier and destroys some of the atmosphere.
