  1. The puzzles are generally not going to get you completely stuck and the graphics and audio do a good job of creating the appropriate environment. Bottom line is if you enjoyed Myst, you might want to give Echo Night: Beyond a shot.
  2. Anyone craving a good, serious scare and the kind of foreboding that rarely comes from games like this has only to snag a copy of this game. And who doesn't like a little freakyness now and then?

    If blasting the undead with weapons is your cup of tea, ENB's gameplay could be lost on you. If you are willing to accept the slower pace of the game and put up with some frustration in favor of a compelling story and interesting adventure, Beyond will go down nicely.
  5. Watching the story unfold is engaging, but the pace of Echo Night: Beyond is already slow, and its easy to see how players who get stuck, wandering the hallways of a Moon base looking for a clue, could easily walk away, never to return.

    Beyond isn't survival-horror, exactly...more like annoyance-horror. The creepy moonbase is spectacularly atmospheric, yes, but many of the puzzles are extremely difficult (I doubt anyone will finish this without some Internet assistance), and important items have a habit of hiding from you in dark, missed areas. [Sept 2004, p.104]
  7. The gameplay is slow and for the most part, laid back, not unlike PC adventure titles like Myst and Syberia. If you can forgive the game's faults, there is something to enjoy here. Just don't expect to be able to shoot anything along the way.

    It's hard, crazy and annoyance, but is the best game in the world.

    Always wondered when they'd get around to making a "Mormons in Space" game. This of course opened the door for later titles, such as "Mutant Space Mormons Ate My Grandma" and "Polygonal Polygamists Perilously Pursue Protestants". (a.k.a. P5)
