    Deliver Us the Moon will captivate you by its fantastic atmosphere originating from ever- changing environments, brilliant audio and heavy questions concering us all. It’s just a shame that many potentially awesome systems were left stuck halfway there on the road to completion.

    There is pain and fear in the stories you hear, there is hope and yet a sense of overwhelming loss. There is jumping across the moon and zipping through space, but also a sombre reflection on our capabilities and inevitable corruption. Although it would have benefited from streamlining its approach and deciding on its priorities at times, Deliver Us The Moon is a game worth playing, worth keeping an eye on in the wake of any new updates, and is an experience to be savored.

    You won’t mistake Deliver Us The Moon for a bleeding edge graphical powerhouse, but it looks very good. At least as good as other hit games in the genre. It’s amazing how good a relatively small dev team can get a 3D exploration game looking. It’s comparable with games on a similar scale, like Subnautica. But I appreciate when a game knows to show restraint in pushing my graphics card to the max, and instead it uses its resources to create a coherent and immersive experience. This is that.

    The interesting story and some clever ideas make Deliver Us The Moon quite recommendable, even when the gameplay falls flat most of the time.

    Deliver Us the Moon is a good-looking game with a solid story premise that doesn’t quite stick the final landing. It never strays far from many of the tried-and-true puzzle-adventure game mechanics (uncharitable people might call them cliches) that remind us we’re in a world with artificially created barriers for us to remove in order to progress. I appreciate that Deliver Us the Moon pulls from some of the dire headlines and concerns that are part of our lives today and suggests how they will resolve — or not.

    While the title does not have a quantity of gameplay, it sticks to its indie roots to make sure there is quality in what little there is. If you’re looking for a gripping, emotional science-fiction story, Deliver Us the Moon is waiting.

    It does remind of Prey… if you remove mimics, compelling story, freedom of exploration, shrink the station to one module and cut the length to 1/6th. Archaic and primitive, Deliver Us the Moon fails to surprise, and it’s a death knell for any self-respecting sci-fi adventure.

    Deliver Us To The Moon was a pleasant gem of an indie. I don't typically play space games that aren't shooters, so I was surprised at theDeliver Us To The Moon was a pleasant gem of an indie. I don't typically play space games that aren't shooters, so I was surprised at the direction taken and the level of realism in this game.

    This game is a space simulator where you're sent to a defunct space station to repair it and get it functional again. But it's not as straightforward as it sounds. It feels like a simpler version of Prey that doesn't have combat and is more focused on the environment.

    There is a ton of story packed into this game, and you can make your experience as thorough or as simple as you wish. You can seek out audio logs and diaries to really immerse yourself or you can simply focus on the mission. It's entirely up to you.

    The devs realize that not every gamer is a rocket scientist, so the game was simplified to a more casual level. Even so, it offers a reasonable challenge that still requires thought, so it is by no means a cakewalk.

    My only peeve would be that I experienced a lot of technical issues. Playing the Xbox Game Pass version, I experienced freezing, crashing, and loading problems which all weighed on the experience, as I would constantly need to restart my PC just to keep playing.

    Overall, I think an 8 is a fair score for this game. It's unique, immersive, and doesn't detract from its intended objective of providing a good all-around story. The game didn't last very long for me (around 3.5 hours), but I will admit that I rushed it a little. If you like space games, you'll surely enjoy this one.

    I went in to this game not having a single clue about it, my only preconceptions is that I like sci-fi story driven games and space. DUTMI went in to this game not having a single clue about it, my only preconceptions is that I like sci-fi story driven games and space. DUTM surprised me, graphically the game is quite stunning, the story is also pretty interesting although I would have liked the people on Earth (your "support") to be much more prominent as this game has no real enemies to speak of environmental hazards are the enemy with occasional small parts of platforming. The gameplay is very straightforward and obstacles you need to solve are all very straightforward although one or two of them have obvious but also obscure answers that might frustrate some as the game doesn't hold your hand at all you need to observe your surroundings carefully. You obtain a companion of sorts who also doesn't make more than beep and boop noises but none the less has an admiral charm.

    Where the game does fall down though is the constant silence the protagonist barely says a word the entire game, and your "support" gets cut off early on and never really comes in to the game at all to break up the deafening silence that will accompany you though this game. Storytelling is handled well however there is a complete disconnect with the two characters you learn about through the game as they are extremely simplistically and generically "rendered" as nothing more than blue and orange person shaped blobs through a "holographic system", you'll end up caring a lot more about your companion than you will anyone else in this game.

    Technically the game is near perfect, no crashes or bugs but I did have a couple clipping issues with interactive objects that had me getting stuck on them until I managed to jump away from them or pick them up and I did have two points in the game where frame rate inexplicably tanked, neither section lasted very long fortunately but none the less it was very strange to have in a game that otherwise ran butter smooth.

    Overall, if you are a sci-fi / space fan that enjoys near future cataclysmic story events then you should like this game, others will likely find it void of anything to hold their interest. I'm torn if I should give this game a 7 or an 8, in an ideal situation I'd likely give it a 7.5, but due to the undeservedly low "critic" scores I'll give it an 8.

    If you like busy work and constantly finding codes to unlock things, you might like this game. If you like the pressure of one timed missionIf you like busy work and constantly finding codes to unlock things, you might like this game. If you like the pressure of one timed mission after another, you might like this game. If you don't find real life frustrating enough, and want to artificially generate frustration to pump into your day, you might like this game.

    The ending, in particular, dials the frustration up to 11 with ludicrously contrived obstacles and events. It's literally designed to induce stress. I can't fathom why people would enjoy such a thing.

    The story is told piecemeal and poorly, and the voice acting is nothing special. After a couple hours, I simply did not care.

    On top of this, there is no ability to manually save, and the game only auto-saves occasionally. So if you want to play for just 10 minutes or so, too bad for you.

    Besides awful, constantly frustrating gameplay, the game is buggy and unacceptably unstable, and would not run stably for me using DX12.
