    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.

    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 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

    This is possibly one of my favorite games of all time due to it's amazing story telling, unique and colorful characters and it's creative spinThis is possibly one of my favorite games of all time due to it's amazing story telling, unique and colorful characters and it's creative spin on the turn based rpg genre. Each character has a exaggerated personality to create a weird, dark and humorous story all at the same time. I also love how different battle segments are compared to something such as Pokemon, in the way that dodging and attacking isn't down to luck but a fun little mini game. This game has brilliant replay value because of it's three main endings and a large variation of messages from one of the main characters about how your actions in the game have affected the future. I would definitely recommend this to any fans of RPGs or anyone with a sense of humor. Expand

    Debo reconocer la gran música que tiene el juego como "Megolavania", pero es lo único que puedo rescatar del juego, todo lo demás es defectuoso.
