    An excellent game visually, mechanically and with it’s strong story and acting, this should be in your libraries.

    If you're hankering for a first person puzzler and/or you're a sci-fi nut, then you will probably love The Turing Test.

    Even if the The Turing Test sometimes wanders into the realm of clichés in terms of both gameplay and the story, the developers tackled the subject of artificial intelligence really well and created an engaging game. [11/2016, p.50]

    The Turing Test offers some engaging puzzle gameplay that will keep you entertained for roughly 12 hours. It lacks polish in some areas but as a package is a solid addition to the library of those interested in first person puzzle games.

    The Turing Test provides interesting story and characters, but the puzzles are a bit too monotonous and easy. Still, this science-fiction tale is worth discovering, and the dialogue is well-written.

    The Turing Test can be quite accurately described as Portal meets Soma, exploring similar ideas of AI and selfhood. The trouble is, I suppose, that both those games did each aspect better.

    There's promise in The Turing Test's constituent parts, but considered as a whole, it fails the imitation game. [Nov 2016, p.110]

The game offers a taste of history if you have the patience to read the docs you find. I give it a 9 out of 10.
    Bringing Alan Turing and Ada Lovelace together is the perfect computer history story!

Il gameplay é "a stanze" , con un crescendo di difficoltá e di possibilitá di gioco. L' ambientazione é quella di una stazione spaziale molto lontana, abbandonata, nella quale non riusciamo a trovare il personale e non capiamo il perché sia scomparso. Il gioco si presenta molto bene, addirittura con una scena fuori all'aperto e qualche sporadica finestra che ci fa scrutare fuori (adoro questi dettagli). Ritengo che il gioco sia molto equilibrato, ben narrato e in generale molto ben fatto. L'aspetto tecnico é eccezionale, con un Unreal Engine 4 sfruttato benissimo. Le musiche sono azzeccate e le voci narranti sono piacevoli da sentire. Anche la storia ha un suo perché. É un gioco abbastanza "semplice" come struttura ma talmente ben messo assieme che lo consiglio caldamente a tutti coloro che hanno amato Portal (1 e 2). Una perla, nel suo genere. Expand

    The Turing Test attempts to say something meaningful, but its message is dulled by a poorly thought out narrative and mediocre writing. TheThe Turing Test attempts to say something meaningful, but its message is dulled by a poorly thought out narrative and mediocre writing. The way the story and philosophical elements are introduced is done in a very blunt and contrived manner, with little subtlety and nuance. When we get snippets of dialogue between Ava and Tom, this is supposed to highlight an engaging debate about the capabilities and limitations of AI and humans, yet the arguments posited from both sides are weak and unconvincing. I also should mention that the setup of the story is pretty weak as well. The whole notion that an extremophile organism with DNA repair capacity somehow definitively translates to immortality for all life-forms is pretty ridiculous.

It wasn't surprising at all, you could expect that from the middle of the game.
    Except that, the puzzles weren't that hard and u could finish the game in few hours, so im not sure if its worth the full price, maybe if its on a sale.

    Se refleja demasiado en la saga Portal para ofrecer una serie de rompecabezas cuyo mayor logro es la sensación de que ya te los has pasado siSe refleja demasiado en la saga Portal para ofrecer una serie de rompecabezas cuyo mayor logro es la sensación de que ya te los has pasado si has jugado a la saga de Valve.

    Gráficamente resultón nos llega sin traducir, por lo que muchos detalles de la historia se nos pasarán por alto. Los 1000 puntos de logros son sencillos y rápidos de conseguir.

    Tiene también algunos guiños al juego Pneuma: Breath of Life, de carácter similar pero con otra ambientación.

    Necesita pocos detalles para mejorar, porque el juego no está nada mal, pero los necesita sobre todo para buscar una identidad propia.
