    Very disappointing game. I don't know how people say the graphics are awesome in this game as they look like they were done by a group of elementary children. The main character is slow and clunky and through the game you feel like you are walking in quicksand all the time. If you fail by falling, etc you are sent back quite a bit too which is also frustrating. The game is not intuitive inVery disappointing game.

After playing less than an hour I got very bored with this game and uninstalled it. Total waste of time and money. This is typical of the small "indie" games found on Steam these days. Expand

    Beautiful Graphics, great music, and interesting lore, but it misses a key component, gameplay, the gameplay sucks big time. If the protagonist didnt had her speed artificially slowed, this boring mess would be finished in 20 minutes. Not worth full price.

    Infelizmente o jogo deixa muito a desejar..
    -Jogabilidade ruim
    -Animações ruins
    -Gráficos mal acabados

    4 anos de desenvolvimento para um jogo que termina em aproximadamente 1h e meia acho que é muito tempo, a única coisa que salva é a trilha sonora

    If people can create a profile just to lie with the 10 ratings, so can I with the 0 rating.
    Faking just because you know the DEV and/or are a brazilian actually hurts the industry...

    A FAKE game. FAKE mechanic. FAKE accounts here to UP the game. DONT BELIEVE in ths "copy & paste" 10. This game SUCKS a lot. About 1 hour of gameplay, and FINISH IT.

    Four years to develop this crap? This game is a bad joke.
    Extremely boring. Broken in every way.
    Poor gameplay, poor graphics, poor duration, zero replay value.
    Save your money and stay away from this crap.

    I felt a need to make an account just for this, feeling misled by some of the overly positive reviews..

    It's.. OK. I gave it a try because of all the positive stuff it has been getting, but overall it's just.. OK. The music is nice and the story is interesting, but it falls short on gameplay and graphics. There's a lot of talk on morality and ideals of man. It felt like it was

    The music is nice and the story is interesting, but it falls short on gameplay and graphics.
    There's a lot of talk on morality and ideals of man. It felt like it was somewhat trying to be like Shadow of the Colossus, but really missed the mark. I can hardly care for the character that has.. well.. no character as well. The only progression with her is how she looks.
    The graphics, for the most part, are like something you'd see on the Playstation 2. It tries to cover this up with a lot of excessive bloom effects. Not bad, but noticeably not great for this day and age of graphics capabilities.
    The gameplay itself is pretty boring, frankly. The puzzles and platforming are simple and short, you'll have them figured out in seconds. As the character grows you'd think the game would too, but it stays about the same throughout.

    The game only really got fun towards the very end, but even that excitement was taken away as you had to repeat the same exact puzzle about 3 times to get through it.

    If you like to listen to philosophical mumbo-jumbo about humanity then I guess this is your game. If you want an actually entertaining platformer, then this is a miss. It's not bad, but it's not good.
    At least it was only about a two hour game.

    Essa análise está dando 0 ao jogo, apenas pra balancear os vários perfis falsos criados exclusivamente pra dar nota 10 a esse jogo, só sendo muito pequeno mesmo pra recorrer a isso.

    Extremely boring and short. Plus. Have a lot of bugs.
    Easily the worst game I have played from a long time.
    Stay away from this piece of crap. Save your money.

    Jogabilidade fraquíssima, puzzles pateticamente fáceis, duração lamentável de gameplay, sem falar da história que não é lá essas coisas. Bom, está é a melhor definição para Toren.

    Cool concept, but failed miserably on game mechanic. Is not fun paying $ 8 a game and finish it in 1 hour. A lot of ambition, but very rude execution. Poor gameplay. Not worth $ 8.

    Disappointing. $ 8 for a 1 hour and a half game. He tried to be an Ico, but does not compare. Really to easy to finish. What you think if you buy a game on Steam and only 1 hour of 'gaming'? Its not fun.

    Don’t believe in positive reviews made by fake profiles. Note the copy & paste and the grammar errors in the positive reviews. These reviews are made by a dumb moron, with megalomaniac crisis.
    The game itself is mediocre. However, the principal problem here is that this game was made with government funding. Money from Brazilian citizens, who pay high taxes to the corrupt government

    I complete disagree with this type of politic, and I am sure that 99% of Brazilian citizens never will hear about this game.

    A cumbersome, art-driven game, with very little in the way of actual gameplay. What gameplay there is, isn't conceptually bad, but it's crippled by absolutely awful unresponsive animation-driven character controls. The camera usually works against you, and it's not always obvious what bits of the scenery are navigable.

    The game feels more like a student project than a professional

    The game feels more like a student project than a professional release, and I'm not just talking about the game's microscopic length. All the student game tropes are here, most obviously a massive emphasis on boring, slow "arty" bits filled with pretentious, meaningless mystical twaddle. It honestly feels like a bunch of students just played ICO and then went off to bang this out as their finals project.

    Because it's such a small game, there isn't all that much to it; it's not a game with something for everyone. Still, even if you're interested, remember that the game is only two hours long, even though it's a very focused two hours, some people may feel they have overpaid for the amount of content they are given.

    Toren’s gameplay is so shallow and poorly executed that makes it more of a pretentious movie than a proper game. [08/2015, p.53]

    This fairytale about the human journey to freedom is totally unfinished. It’s filled with technical issues and the gamplay is so terrible that even its great storyline can’t help the game at all.
