    A gem among logic games. An original concept developed by hundreds of incredibly imaginative levels has the potential to entertain for a long time. [Issue#294]

    It only took about 15 minutes for me to realize that Baba Is You truly is an extraordinary game. Its concept as well as its mechanics are refreshing and nigh perfect. Within the first level, the game teaches you how to play it without having to use even one explicit tutorial-line. And it only goes uphill from there. Sure, not every puzzle is impeccable, and I did manage to get stuck on some, but the overall joy I felt - if one of my solutions actually worked - outweighed all of that. If you’re a fan of puzzle-games, you should definitely check out Baba Is You.

    Baba is You manages to take the familiar idea of nudging blocks and solving puzzles in a fresh direction. Brilliant.

    One of the most distinctive, exciting and fully realised puzzle games we've played in years. [Issue#332, p.122]

    Sokoban meets programming language logic – probably the best puzzle game 2019.

    Baba Is You is a real UFO in the puzzle games genre, and brings with him a wind of freshness. Despite its sober graphics, it unveileds all its depth thanks to its mechanics. A true unique experience.

    Baba is You is among the most seriously arduous games of its kind I’ve played, and when its rules are clear and its instructions legible, it’s gratifying in a way only hardcore suffering can be.

    Probably my favourite puzzle game of all times.
    The levels are of the right difficulty: the first are challenging but overall easy, but the more you progress in the game the more the levels become hard. Some levels will for sure keep you in front of the monitor for very long.
    The music is awesome as well.

It makes you think as if all of these puzzle games were like this, because it just so effortlessly blends perfectly into the gameplay. it makes a simple game a complete masterpiece. buy this game if you get the chance.

Before, I highly recommended The Witness, Braid, The Swapper and Portal, but now, I just recommend this to everyone first (the rest still makes up my top 5, but Baba is way ahead). I legit bought it on the Switch after the PC just to encourage the developer and so it's easier to have my friends test it (Already converted 4 of them after like 10mins of play). It looks like **** but don't let that deter you, as you'll play the most clever and innovative puzzles out there.

    Only bad reviews are from people who thought they were good at puzzle games, but couldn't handle the Ego-check that they're not that smart. You'll feel like an idiot then a genius every level and that's the whole thrill !
