    You can't outrun the sheer horror of existence, but Jett: The Far Shore lets you try. Its heavy narrative is a perfect complement to its exhilarating gameplay.

    While some annoyances stop Jett: The Far Shore from realizing its full potential, it's definitely a game that fans of experiences like Journey and Abzu might enjoy.

    Jett is a memorable space adventure that, interestingly enough, shines thanks to its gameplay and writing, even if both are flawed.

    JETT reaches for the stars, and it is tantalising to watch it do so. It’s a shame that the camera cuts away just as it looks like it’s going to get there.

    It wasn't clear before release what Jett: The Far Shore wanted to be, which was as alien as its setting. Unfortunately it is not even now. It is a not at all veiled reference to the intuitions of No Man's Sky, but having adapted that playful structure to a narrative that exists and also has not indifferent apexes. The problem is almost entirely in the gameplay, which together with unresponsive controls transforms even the simplest of activities into a grueling struggle with the game system. A real shame, unfortunately, since the game was intended as a placid and relaxing experience.

    JETT: The Far Shore makes a good first impression with its retro sci-fi visual design and expressive flight model. But it’s difficult to connect with its story and your team when you have limited scope to make discoveries and supposedly dangerous events prove trivial to deal with. Only in the final stages does it let you spread your wings a little, and feels more powerful as a result.

    Jett: The Far Shore is at its best when you're speeding through the air and provided with the agency to figure out how to reach your destination, not slowly hovering around a space and having someone hold your hand through every step of a puzzle. Regular occurrences of the latter drag down the whole experience, and the overall narrative--though intriguingly set-up--ultimately ends in an unfulfilling way, with protagonist Mei feeling too detached from the story and the themes it's trying to explore.

If you love a good story, space exploration or insane landscapes, you should play this game! Expand

Highly recommended if you like artistic story-driven indie games. If that's not your thing, skip it instead of whining about it on the internet. Most of the negative reviews are from people who don't like this type of gaming experience and would never even pick it up if they weren't paid to. It's certainly not for everyone, and some people should skip it. Just watch the trailer and if it feels like your kind of thing, it probably is. Expand

You play as a jett pilot, one of the few astronauts which represent the vanguard of large group of people fleeing their dying world and seeking refuge on this new alien planet (satellite). I don't want to get into much detail but your task is to chart the various landmass, flora and fauna you find and send all the data to the mother ship above in orbit where the majority of your people ar still in cryo sleep. Not everything goes as planed and you will have to go through some stuff to succeed. These indie developers did pretty good job with this unique game, I'm still thinking about the part in the beginning where you arrive to the planet and go down it's atmosphere for the first time and experience the new things that await you bellow.
    I only gave it an 8 because the game has some small issues. For one, there are occasionall stutters or instances when the game slows down like when you're trying to zoom in closer to your ship. This shouldn't be happening in an indie game like this on a PS5. The characters of the game speek a made up language, which adds to the imersion, but it's difficult to focus on the subtitles when you get directions from your copilot and also try to maneuver your jett in the middle of an action sequence when you are attacked or something.
    Overall I would recommend it!

The game just isn’t as advertised. I payed full retail price not long after release day. Waste of money Expand
