Even with high expectations going in The Talos Principle still blew me away. Through excellent puzzle design and a thought provoking narrative this easily stands among some of my favorites games this year.
Wohl das einzige Spiel seiner Art, das mit Portal 2 mithalten kann und sogar mehr Umfang bietet.
Es fängt zwar leicht an, hat aber sehr viele Levels und auch sehr herausfordernde.
Zusätzlich gibt es auch noch out-of-the-box-thinking puzzles (Sterne), die auch sehr viel Spaß machen.
Puno hvala an die Entwickler.
Ich kann den 2. Teil kaum erwarten!
There are a few performance issues here on console but that aside Talos Principal is an excellent puzzle based game that keeps players engaged and perplexed, a winning combination all around in my book.
The Talos Principle is a fun puzzle game that also makes some strong philosophical points. The puzzles can sometimes be frustrating and the heavy amount of text to read in the files can bog down the pace, but it’s still a memorable adventure that players will undoubtedly want to discuss and dissect with their friends.
Congratulations to the developers and writers. To me this is the best game ever, hands down, second to none (and I been playing videgames for a while, born in 1973).
I loved the puzzles, they are interesting and put your brain to work. I loved even more, the story and how you interact with the other "characters" in the game. So many major themes in human history, so many beautiful remarks -as the Barnum/Forer effect when they evaluate your profile- pure gold.
And there is more to it, graphics are really nice and the sound track is also excellent. My kid played the game alone and he did not like it at first (because he was skipping all the reading parts), then we played together and he loved the game too. I had many many hours of pure fun with this master piece. My only regret- I played on PS4 and there is no VR version for consoles.
The Talos Principle is a very engaging game that respects the intelligence of the player.
Pros: Great puzzles that build off of previous knowledge, Thought provoking narrative, Rewarding pay off for committed players, Quality of life options
Cons: 100% Completion has some unfair challenges, some of the dialogue is reiterative, Early puzzles were too easy
There are three worlds each with sub-areas containing puzzle rooms. Puzzles are good, a little too easy at first but ramp to difficult puzzles with many different interacting pieces. These were the most enthralling to me. Where all the rules were understood and smart solutions had to be found. This was not the case with the extra stars that are hidden in each sub-area, while some of the realizations to get these are amazing, more than a few felt unfair and not sign posted well enough. If puzzles were all that there was to this game I think it would be a solid game, but there is another aspect that this game does well, a narrative.
I never would have expected the people who make Serious Sam to be good at writing a deeply person exploration of the player's feelings towards humanity. While the dialogue can range from thought provoking to esoteric, it all fits within the narrative, and holds significant weight. The topics covered are done well, for the most part, so that almost every person who plays this game can understand.
I have some minor gripes with this game, but this is outweighed by what it does correctly. I think this is a great puzzle game for those who enjoy that experience, and I am anticipating the sequel that has been announced. More could have been done with the project and there is still so much potential.
The Talos Principle is a story driven first person puzzle game that tasks the player with completing a series of challenges in order to collect the puzzle pieces required to progress through the game.
The puzzles themselves, obviously the most important element in this genre, are (with a couple of exceptions) more logical than many other similar titles I’ve played but by about the half-way point virtually all the new elements had been introduced and they started to become a little repetitive. Fortunately the central story, which I won’t spoil here, is interesting and told in a non-intrusive way that allows the player to delve as into it as much or as little as they want and this helped keep me playing to the end when I might have otherwise given up.
The Talos principle is certainly no Portal beater but if you’re a fan of the puzzle genre this is well worth checking out.
Starts great but soul crushingly repetitive and goes on for too long with too little reward. I could only make it halfway through before I found I was forcing myself to go on. Deleted it shortly after that. Maybe put something more interesting in there in between the puzzles or something? Because it felt like never ending tedium. Actually, yeah that's exactly what it is. soul crushing, never-ending, repetitive as all hell tedium.
