    The Fall is positioned as the first in a three part story. Without mentioning specifics I’ll just say that the game is really well written, intriguing from start to finish, and it features some great voice acting. While it’s certainly the start of a larger story I think The Fall does a fantastic job of setting up a really interesting world and ending on a crazy/satisfying conclusion.

    It's a seductive old-school sci-fi yarn, with characters that somehow manage to represent greater ideas and exist as fully-formed beings.

    The controls could be more intuitive, as could interacting with objects, but overall The Fall's winning combination of great storyline, well-penned script and impressive game world makes it one of the best indie titles out there.

    The Fall is a thought-provoking title with a clever narrative that explores rogue AI in a unique and interesting way.
  5. 65
    Its deep and thoughtful explorations into the technicalities of AI are intelligent and surprisingly thought provoking. It’s unfortunately hindered by clunky mechanics and overly complicated puzzles that often border on the obtuse when it comes to the specifics required to finish them.

A couple of puzzles can be a bit annoying especially at the start, and the combat is very much "eh", but it looks good, has a great atmosphere and a decent story. Too bad the trophies are just as bugged on the PS4 as they are on the PC, with no fix incoming. For me it was the "Merciful" trophy.

    Regardless, if you like interesting sci-fi and some clever puzzles, you might like it. Shouldn't take more than three hours to beat without a walkthrough, so you do the math on whether it is worth the price of admission.

The fighting element was good. The story was satisfactory. I actually wish the game had been a bit longer. As a discount purchase that'll last an hour or three (depending on your skill and savvy), it was good. Expand
