    It was a whispered reminder that great games can do more than impress with sheer complexity and breadth, they can also draw us in close to them as to engage with our humanity.

    It’s rare for a game to so ruthlessly and completely nail the altered reality games place us in the way Undertale does. Whether it’s the nameless NPCs you always meet in RPGs or the hundreds of mooks you mow down with gunfire in games like Uncharted, Undertale brilliantly demystifies these conventions and questions why games are still codified this way. But even outside of its ambitious themes, it proves to be a compact, perfectly paced RPG experience with hilarious, tense writing and endearing characters. That it succeeds so completely in its thematic approach on top of all that is what makes Undertale a truly essential experience.

    Through a combination of often relaxed but sometimes tense gameplay, a dreamy atmosphere, and genuine characters that feel like they’re actually alive and all living together in this isolated society of longing, Undertale transcends its medium and becomes a genuinely moving experience I would recommend to anyone who is open to a sometimes sorrowful, sometimes hilarious, always bizarre and engaging emotional journey.

    Undertale fills me with determination. The biggest surprise of 2015, a unique masterpiece. [Dec 2015]

    Undertale is a fresh and original indie adventure: great story, great characters and a wonderful soundtrack.

    Toby Fox's work is not just an anecdote: it is perfectly well-thought out. It hides something that connects directly or indirectly to anyone who has spent too much time with a gamepad in his hands.

    An interesting concept, a weak execution.

    This game is great. It feels great even on low graphics. I'm surprised someone created this game. Also have multiple options

    Clever, fun, and full of heart. The closest comparison I can think of in tone are the Mother series, and the games of Yoshirou Kimura. TheClever, fun, and full of heart. The closest comparison I can think of in tone are the Mother series, and the games of Yoshirou Kimura. The type of game that uses weirdness, humour and innocence to teach you something about how you approach games and maybe a little bit about yourself. Expand

The characters are so finely crafted that it would be painful to kill them, even though you have the option to do so. Watch the Game Grumps play the first five minutes of the game, then try telling me that the game is not at all interesting.

    It's very rare where I play a game and I cannot stop thinking about it for days after. The story is spread out, but easy to mentally assemble. The story suits the game so well, that if it was mad into a movie, there would be no way of making it as good as it is in the game.

    Easily the best game I've ever played.

    I don't think this game needs my review's help, but I'm reviewing it anyways.

    This is a game with lots of shmup, EarthBound, and a bunch of other indie games that were also inspired by EarthBound. It has a lot of heart, a lot of bad puns, a lot of good times, and a lot of bad times.

    I don't think it's especially profound. I would say it's more profound than its idol, EarthBound, and I would say the story's more meta elements are certainly clever and fun to mess with, but it probably won't change your life. And it doesn't need to. It just needs to be an inventive and unique experience.

    I really don't have any complaints about this game. I just like it all.

    Play it.

    The best soundtrack I've ever heard. This would be a 10 if RPG's and story-driven games weren't my least favorite genres.
