But when a daring heist takes an unexpected turn, Teriel finds himself shackled on an airship bound for the infamous island. To make matters worse, the daemon inside his head makes it very clear that the thief will never leave unless he does exactly what he's told.

    In Seven: The Days Long Gone you play as Teriel. You must use all of your cunning and clandestine skills to escape a web of deceit and betrayal, and ultimately survive Peh.

    This is a game in which you can explore, fail, succeed and keep repeating that. That sounds easy, but this is a very complex and rich RPG.

    Seven is a very good steath game with an interesting story in a vibrant cyberpunk world.

    The lack of focus can be frustrating, but the world is so interesting that it'll draw you back in. [Issue#269, p.55]

    Seven: The Days Long Gone is a unique mixture of genre and mechanics (action/RPG, stealth, parkour) that could have been a real revolution for the entire isometric RPG genre. Despite a lot of interest ideas the execution has to many flaws to really accomplish all of its ambitions.

    Seven: The Days Long Gone does a few things very well, but none of them involve the mechanics or gameplay at all.

    Everything about Seven is just a bit of a shame. Fool’s Theory has come so close, and in doing so proven itself the jack-of-all-trades, master of none. A game of this budget lives and dies on having one or two insanely unique or memorable standout features, and yet Seven lacks in this area. With the thousands upon thousands of games now at our fingertips, it’s never been harder for devs to get noticed. None of Seven’s particularly bad, it’s just not especially memorable.

    Seven: The Days Long Gone feels like it’s trying to break new ground at every turn, but in the process it makes some really bad choices and is executed poorly. Its action is acrobatic but almost immediately gets stale, climbing is only fun when the levels allow it, most crafting systems are needlessly obtuse, and its fast-travel system actively tries to kill you on a regular basis. Add to that the regular bugs, and Seven’s days are numbered.

    What do you get by crossing Witcher, Fallout, Planescape Torment, Thief and Commandos? That's right, you get this very game. Seven is a gameWhat do you get by crossing Witcher, Fallout, Planescape Torment, Thief and Commandos? That's right, you get this very game. Seven is a game that I always wanted to play - I can loot everything, kill anyone (but most of the time only if I manage to sneak up on them), craft stuff, climb obstacles and reach every part of the ground that I can lay my eyes on. Whoah! This game is AMAZING! But that's not all. I like to approach quests my own way and this is pretty much te first game that gives me that opportunity. I'm not forced onto one path. I don't have to sneak-kill all the guards and avoid security cams if I can kill one and change into his clothes. Or maybe I'll find another way around. Or talk to someone. Now that's the way of play I truly love. The creators must have been playing and hosting an awful lot of traditional RPG sessions. Expand

    Criminally underrated and underrepresented, Seven: The Days Long Gone is the sleeper hit of the year. A very interesting and enjoyable blendCriminally underrated and underrepresented, Seven: The Days Long Gone is the sleeper hit of the year. A very interesting and enjoyable blend of old-school top-down isometric RPG and the parkour mechanics of games like Assassin's Creed and Mirrors Edge. Very lengthy and interesting story for the cheap $30 price tag. HIGHLY recommended. I don't know what the issue is with some of the major reviewers giving the game only average reviews, but something I've learned the last 30 or so years of gaming is that game review critics cannot be trusted worth a damn. The game is solid and deserves at the very least an 8 and all the way up to a 10 depending on the player's interests. I give it a 10. Expand

    As of today, there are too many bugs that make the gameplay a chore, and a documentation that is quite lacking.
    I suggest that you wait some patches before buying.

    Lots of potential, interesting background and nice stories but fights aren't well done, stealth isn't working properly (terrible AI, awkwardLots of potential, interesting background and nice stories but fights aren't well done, stealth isn't working properly (terrible AI, awkward gameplay, collision issues, camera issues, infinite enemies respawns etc.) and the game is really really full of bugs/broken mechanics.
    You'll die a lot for no reasons, game makes you save a lot and stack them a lot, most certainly because devs are aware their game isn't much playable and at best a beta.

    Main character is kind of boring even if his possessing demon brings some spice to his really bad scripts. Universe is rich but you don't really have any impact on it, there's nothing much exciting about most of the quests and you'll never have a choice in any situation.

    Openworld isn't really an openworld, most places are locked behind visas anyway and exploration is really linear. Map and quest tracking is really outdated and doesn't help either.

    Overall this game seems quite dated even if they tried to make something new with such old mechanics (isometric gameplay) and after many hours i feel more frustrated than really entertained. Sadly more time to polish the game would have solved many issues.
