A relatively slow start soon becomes a frantic effort to combat sub-zero temperatures, starvation and insanity. If your constitution can withstand murder, cannibalism, paranoid delusions and a choking miasma of nihilistic despair, Symmetry will effortlessly contribute to your existing psychopathy. Recommended!
A challenging survival game with a dark atmosphere and intriguing story. It’s much better than its price suggests, but can be really frustrating when the random factor (implemented to intensify tension) goes rogue and causes almost all the systems in your base to malfunction within half a minute.

SYMMETRY takes masterful atmosphere aided by great art and sound, and plugs it all into overly simple yet unfairly difficult gameplay strung around a story that starts in an interesting manner but goes nowhere meaningful. There is a whole lot of potential on display here that gets left out in the cold.
