    The Way Remastered introduces us a man who does not accept the death of the person he loves, and thanks to his experience working as an explorer and researcher, he believes he has found a way to resurrect his wife. The game does not arrive with an impeccable translation into Spanish, and there are small bugs that can complicate the experience of this adventure. However, the game is still an incredible experience that fans of puzzle games will love.

    The Way Remastered is a fun and challenging puzzle platformer. The world is wonderfully crafted and is a sight to behold. The game closing errors and game breaking bug are annoying and ruin the fun. Relying only on autosave can cause problems, as I learned the hard way. Hopefully the planned patch can fix these issues.

    I found The Way Remastered’s presentation to be the most enjoyable aspect of the whole experience. The artwork, music, sound effects, and environments are fantastic. I was shocked at how immersive the experience was, from the beginning’s intense stealth mission to exploring the dark ruins of an alien planet.

    As I progressed, I began to care less and less about Tom, his old crew and his plight. Which is a crying shame considering the opening of the game felt like the writer and developers reaching out and grabbing me by the throat. Discovering alien artefacts and cave systems initially perked me up, but the rinse and repeat nature of obtaining these upgrades wore me down.

    The Way Remastered isn't an experience you're going to forget in a while, but it would be markedly improved with more accurate controls. As such, it's more irritating than it is inspiring in its current form.

    The story was interesting with captivating settings and gorgeous areas to explore. The game also featured a great audio design, with some voice acting accenting the strong background music. The puzzles were difficult but fair, and the sense of accomplishment created true highs. But between glitches and faulty control schemes, I found the game impossible to complete, and that makes it hard to recommend.

    The Way Remastered is another janky indie game with faux-retro pixel art that misses the point of pixel art. It looks and plays like it was made by amateurs or possibly by some cynical designers who ticked all their checkboxes on what generic indie games are. This is not the worst indie game made - far from it - but it is so bland and plain... so middle of the road and inoffensive, that it is devoid of soul.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I just created a metacritic profile for the first time explicitly so I could leave a 10 out of 10 review for this game. It's more of an 8, or maybe 8.5. But it's definitely not a 6.

    I realize- reading the previous reviews- that the version of the game that I played is perhaps a patched edition? I did not experience game breaking bugs in my playthrough.

    I bought this game on sale in the Nintendo Store for about a buck fifty. It was a delight, and a steal. I have strong nostalgic memories of Another World that resonated in this game. Despite some, at times, odd audio-and-text dialogue, the story was compelling and immersive. And the puzzles were intermittently a breeze and challenging. I wouldn't call it a very difficult game, but there were a couple solid challenges. The world building, character design, music score, and overall style were each excellent. And I felt that from reading the other reviews, that the difficulty of Major Tom's controls/movements is greatly exaggerated. I found the game smooth. Plentiful save points balanced out easy and often accidental deaths, which were also often comical.

    I would recommend this game to anyone. And I hope we learn more about the two characters at the end of the story that appear briefly in future games released by these developers.

It is a puzzle-plataformer with great puzzle solving and they're just hard enough to give a good challenge but not impossible. The story is very straight forward but it definitely intrigues you to want to finish it. I got it for $1.50 so if you can get at bargain price it's well worth it. The graphics are a neat pixel art form and with great sound effects and voice acting. No issue with controls whatsoever.

    All in all its a great indie game that you should add to your collection.

This game is a roller coaster of emotions. First of all the game looks stunning, it's detailed 16 bit art style will have you just staring and taking in the levels because of how georgous it is. It's clearly inspired by games like Another World which I personally don't have a problem with. The games story will have you interested and gripped from the start as it's so interesting. The characters also have great development and make you really feel for them. Puzzle wise, it's mainly fairly simple puzzles but sometimes it can be frustrating but a simple YouTube search will solve that. The only bad thing about this game is that sometimes the controls can be a little frustrating in some puzzles like the mirror shield (I think it's called that).
    This is easily one of my favourite games and I highly recommend you check this out. The best £1 I've ever spent.

Last boss was quite unexpected but after a few tries it became clear what should I do and how many times xDD Expand

    All in all, a good game flawed only by unprecise and sometimes unresponsive controls.
    Bought for 10 bucks and finished in >24hrs, still deserve the experience.

    The good:
    - Style: visually the best pixel art out there
    - Concept and setting: a lot of inspiration from sci-fi classic
    - Story: the struggle of a man that want to rejoin his wife

    The Bad

    - Controls: You will die A LOT cause of controls. Sometimes, they just don't accept your input, sometimes will double it (as happens during the hoverbike section)
    - Ending: I am really really displeased with the ending. It's rushed, and really doesn't fit well in the rest of the story.

    You can still enjoy the game, just wait a discount or sale. 10€ are really too much

Additionally, many of the puzzles are bland, some of them drawing inspiration from the physical puzzle games Rush Hour and Lights Out, for example. All this is wrapped up with a generic story, centered around the girlfriend in freezer trope, and while the LucasArt-like text on-screen is a nice touch of nostalgia, the voice acting that delivers these lines is stilted. It's a disappointing experience altogether. Expand
