Sea of Solitude Review (Xbox One)

The gameplay by no means boils all the way down to one thing fascinating. It begins off easy as you drive a few small boats, resolve darkish/mild puzzles, and make your method inside town whereas the sport drops story moments one after one other. You can do some non-compulsory duties like discovering bottles with messages in them or making eagles fly away with noise, however they’re as boring as they sound. Later within the recreation, there are encounters the place you evade enemies and try and destroy them however these are additionally principally infuriating with unhealthy design decisions changing into a giant hurdle in appreciating them.

I’ve loved indie video games which place an emphasis on their storytelling as an alternative of gameplay. When it involves some nice examples, What Remains of Edith Finch and Inside are two prime contenders this technology, however sadly Sea of Solitude doesn’t make the listing. It is an effective story that culminates in an fascinating finale however the journey to the tip is just not satisfying with fixed hurdles positioned alongside the way in which within the type of its shallow gameplay.
