    Sable's lonely, heartfelt journey of self-discovery will sit with me for a lifetime.

    Playing Sable very well may be as close as one can get to a meditative experience while playing a game. Few games feel as good to simply exist within as Sable. The game’s gorgeous visuals, warm and comforting music, and intuitive game design all come together to create a unique experience about trying to find one’s place in the world through an expression of an individual’s freedom.

    Sable ends in the same way it starts, at home with family. The narrative payoff is not actually about your final choice, and that may rub more goal-oriented players the wrong way. However, I found the conclusion a fitting end to a side quest-filled exploration game. For those who love to explore, I can’t recommend Sable enough. Every element – beautiful graphics, compelling traversal, and player-driven plot – works together to ensure I simply lose myself in the world.

    With its beautiful design, surprisingly deep lore, and comforting soundtrack, Sable provides a joyful and inspiring escape that would be a shame to miss out on.

    Sable is a fascinating and unique journey that lets the player discover the world of Midden and face a poetic but pretty empty open world.

    If the idea of a game that offers you a true sense of freedom appeals to you, you’ll undoubtedly get a kick out of Sable. Its expertly-crafted narrative alone will inspire you to keep going, but repetitive quests and an often barren world may dampen your spirits a little. Still, there’s a lot to enjoy here, and if its art style resonates with you, you’ll find it easy to lose hour after hour in Sable‘s unique world.

    Sable should be applauded for its strong aesthetic choices and ambitious restructure of open-world priorities, but it fails to fully deliver on its premise and is ultimately undone by a lack of polish or engaging mechanics.

VisualsIf you're all about game mechanics and combat, this game isn't for you. BUT if you're mind is open for games as art, this is a 10/10. Visuals and score are immaculate. Characters and writing are witty and fun. The pay-off you get from exploring is immense. At this point the bugs are still a bit annoying and can stop progression at times (happened 2 times for me). But other than that this game is game design in perfection. Expand

TheThis game is incredibly beautiful, both visually and audibly. The soundtrack and the sound design are both amazing and add to the game. The visuals are like something out of a Mobius painting. I also very much liked how spread out and desolate the desert felt. It gives weight to the things that you do find and adds a realism feel. The game is plagued by menu bugs, some camera glitches, and what seems like poor optimization. However, its a two person team and I am assuming they will continue working on this and adding content. I recommend this game to anyone looking for a chill game that never requires fighting or pixel perfect jumps. Expand

The story is maybe the biggest problem here. It's not told in a very engaging way. And since you have a vast empty country to explore, you got to have a more focus story to keep you motivated. Instead, it is told in an eclectic way. The graphics are superb and different from the usual cell shading. And the transition between day and night is fun. But there is a lot of clipping and camera problems, performance issues when there is too much vegetation. Some bug are found when you try to climb. Some other controls works well however, like gliding, floating and jumping. The music was ok. The sounds were unique. I give it 65% because there is a nice game behind it all. But I got really bored after 3 zones and didn't see the points of collecting items for a story I had almost forgot. Expand
