    After writing a very angry, long review of this game I decided to delete them both and leave only this instead:
    for the love of our sweet lord Hestu don’t you dare buy this crap full price.
    I’m going to play Octopath traveller.
    Shakalaka for us all.

    I liked it! The art style is adorable, the puzzles are slightly challenging, but most of all the narrative is pretty mature in a good way. The only thing I didn't like was the loading screen! Sometimes you accidentally walk too close to the edge of the area or you press A too close to the bird and your stuck on a loading screen, only to turn around and move back and wait through the sameI liked it!

All in all, a nice experience but a confirmation to switch areas would be a welcome quality of life addition. Expand

    I give 6, but in fact, this game doesn't have any flaws. The plot is interesting, and the ending is not surprising, but still impressive. Puzzles are nice and easy. It just doesn't offer more, I guess.

    Silence is a graphic adventure recommended for all lovers of the genre, but its short duration, its controls and the high price to be a port can take many fans away from this dramatic story.

    Silence is a game that deserves to be played in docked mode on the Switch. It gives you a story you’ll be immersed in, while the vibrant graphics will keep you playing for just that little bit longer. You may feel like you’re wasting time when it comes to the multiple chat options, as they always conclude at the right outcome, but your curiosity will want you to keep going to find out more about the world of Silence, and to bring Noah and Renie home, whatever it takes. The lack of touch screen control is a disappointment though, and we can't help but feel this should have been priced a little cheaper, considering its age and how much it costs elsewhere.

    Silence: The Whispered World 2 is a beautiful and polished experience with a distinct focus on its story. It still holds enough traditional gameplay to be considered a point-and-click adventure rather than a "walking simulator," but it sacrifices complexity and variety for a more streamlined approach. It's also a very short experience, which doesn't necessarily work in its favor. It doesn't overstay its welcome, but many of it is too short-lived to make the impact it's so clearly striving for.
