The world, puzzles, narrative and music are all served to the player in small helpings, never overwhelming and allowing you to soak in and become one with the world. By the end of the game, it has challenged your mind in multiple ways.
"The Talos Principle" is a masterpiece that seamlessly combines clever puzzles with deep philosophical exploration. Its challenging puzzles will keep you engrossed, its soundtrack will envelop you, and its profound narrative will make you ponder. It's a game that challenges the mind and touches the heart.
A unique journey you shouldn't miss.
Absolutely one of the best puzzle FPS games. Storytelling is great. Graphics are awesome. Tons of easter eggs. Had fun playing and solving its puzzles. I can easily say that some puzzles are hard but not **** If you like this one also give it a go for Portal, Portal 2 and Antichamber.
The Talos Principle’s worst transgression is that it is absolutely predictable. The levels are all too similar, and by the end of the game you do pretty much the same routine as you do in the beginning.
This game will make you think about your/our existence. It's very philosophical, but also educational.
What I didn't like is that it bugged out towards the end, making it really difficult for me to solve the riddles.
All in all, a good play, but I don't like people comparing it to Portal.
