    Kentucky Route Zero manages to cover fascinating new ground with each act, and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here. More importantly, I can’t wait to see all the strange sights along the way.

    Act three is maybe less “spectacular” in terms of visual direction than the previous two, but it's another incredibly well written game, full of crazy ideas and fresh situations. It's also a very particular game, fully based on interactive narration. But by now you should know if you like it.

    Kentucky Route Zero is not, in any sense, a typical adventure game. It's an incredible one.

    This third episode of Kentucky Route Zero has its ups and downs, but the adventure continues and it is still a fantastic trip.

    An absolute piece of after hours magic, not really a video game by any stretch. Just a bit of magic you've pulled in from the abyss and dressed up in interactive trappings before placing it on Steam. The set pieces are magnificent and so is that haunting, elegiac "Too Late To Love You Now" song. It's not about a particular meaning but about an experience.

    Personalities are becoming brighter and more vivid. I no longer felt like I was making my best guess as to what a character would say, but rather making important choices for what they should say. The player's role as a director starts to feel solidified and important.

    Kentucky Route Zero’s excellent third act is no less weird than its predecessors, but hints at something unexpected: a coherent narrative.

    Kentucky Route Zero is currently the best thing happening in the world of gaming. Seriously, no game on the market can match the way theseKentucky Route Zero is currently the best thing happening in the world of gaming. Seriously, no game on the market can match the way these individual episodes control tone, theme, and atmosphere. I'd say I can't wait for the next act, but my impatience is not a virtue when it comes to this game. Expand
