    Beautiful Desolation is an essential entry in the Adventure Game genre and should not be missed. Gorgeous visuals, and evocative sound design compliment an exceptional sci-fi story filled with mystery, pathos, and good old-fashioned adventuring with some modern flair.

    Beautiful Desolation is a idiosyncratic, multi-themed journey, bringing some interesting gameplay ideas to the table. Its story and distinct setting are its strongest assets and it will definitely take you places. Be aware though, there is no hand holding at all. You'll need to pay attention to the conversations with the cast of delightfully bizarre characters you meet, if you don't want to backtrack and fumble for clues constantly.

    Beautiful Desolation is a beautiful point and click adventure full of interesting situations and themes to be experienced.

    Beautiful Desolation is an old-school 2D isometric adventure, but like Stasis it's the story the true focus.

    Beautiful Desolation is an isometric adventure that makes wanderlust, cutscenes and visual art its strongest and stunning points. Enigmas and dialogues are surrounded with weird, tribal-punk and futuristic vibes. The gameplay brings some of the issues of oldest point-and-click-games: vagueness and backtracking. Anyway, the overall experience is magnificent, non-linear and original.

    Α lonely and gorgeous afrofuturistic adventure that offers a unique spin to a classic post-apocalyptic world, but would benefit by a quest log and/ or some sort of guidance over the flow of the narrative.

    The idea behind Beautiful Desolation is, unfortunately, its greatest success, let down by the way the game itself works. Still, this quaint trip into a world of post-apocalyptic retro-futurism is worth a try.
