    A fox traveling through a fairy-tale-like world alone is charming enough, but it is how the tale of this fox and a man come together that makes The First Tree so special. This is one of those games you must play before having it spoiled at all costs.

  1. I’d love to have played a game that tried to explore that rocky landscape, with some nuance, some introspection, and most of all, with some humility. This is not that game.

But a great narrative and audio will make you feel very emotional at the end. Its one of the best examples of a video game becoming a peace of art. Expand

    It has a great emotional story to tell, but its gameplay will bore you to sleep with its endless walking sections with nothing happening.It has a great emotional story to tell, but its gameplay will bore you to sleep with its endless walking sections with nothing happening. There are huge areas to explore, but everything is 90% empty and the fox runs so slowly that by the second half of the game exploring seems like such a chore that doesn't get rewarded at all. Also the jumping animation is ridiculous. Expand
