    As a game Contrast works, but has a few flaws. As a creative narrative, Contrast succeeds on almost every front.

The music and atmosphere were good and the puzzles were challenging but solvable with just a little patience. The controls sometimes were a bit too sensitive for me but this also added to the challenge of the game. The story really pulled me into the game and vice-versa and after seeing the ending I want to play again to see what I missed and take more notice of the little details within the story line.
    Although I bought the game during Xbox Sales it was money well spent. Thank you for a great game.

I liked the idea of it all. And some of the puzzles took quite a bit of thinking to solve. It was a fairly short game but for the price I don't think that is a downfall. The only reason I did not give it a 10 was that I did run into a few glitchy bits where I couldn't jump or got stuck in a wall. Expand

    I really enjoyed this game. Everything works pretty well and I think the story and the atmosphere are well done. The game play is enjoyableI really enjoyed this game. Everything works pretty well and I think the story and the atmosphere are well done. The game play is enjoyable and creative and pretty original. The game is quite short but still a lot of fun to play.The only negative for me was the child was a little annoying to listen to but overall I liked this game a lot. If you are looking for something different to play on your Xbox One this is a good choice. Expand
