    FAR: Lone Sails is a trip that once you play, you won’t forget anytime soon. It’s beautiful and emotional in a raw way that very few games manage; with no words, it strikes straight to the heart. It’s a wonderful experience from start to finish, and I wholeheartedly suggest anyone to play it who has the slightest of interest.

    Lone Sails 2D, beautiful journey is short but sweet, and there is no other game in this genre that you can compare it with. If you don't mind your 15 bucks, you should definitely go for it.

    An interesting proposal that pays attention to your feeling more than to graphics or sound to tell us a moving story about loneliness.

    Far: Lone Sails is a game that says a great deal without ever uttering a single word. Much like Dear Esther, it’s a journey that can be interpreted in many ways, and as such, your view of its gorgeously desperate world will constantly vary throughout. It’s a shame, however, that such a compelling canvas is slightly held back by its simplicity and its short length. Still, it’s a fascinating tale that deserves attention, just don’t expect too much from its gameplay.

Unique experiences don'tIn Far: Lone Sails, the puzzles aren’t really challenging but I found the game very unique and fun in it's own way. Unique experiences don't come around frequently enough anymore and FarL Lone Sails was able to deliver a fun although short experience I won't soon forget. A game doesn’t need to have any dialogue tell a dramatic story, but in order for a game to be successful when trying this concept it does need to be crammed with atmosphere and immersion. FAR: Lone Sails achieves this formula well, and both the visuals and sound design shine through an unforgettable journey with a few different emotions encountered along the journey.. Despite a small morsel of repetitiveness feeling occasionally, I still enjoyed the game and the relaxing yet emotional tale. I would however have liked to have seen more puzzles or multiple paths that could have been taken, maybe we will get that in the form of a future DLC. That said the content is done really well and if you’re looking for a journey that takes you away from all of the action games on the market today, then I’m sure you’ll really enjoy what FAR: Lone Sails offers. The game most definitely gets a thumbs up as it feels great in my wheelhouse of gaming styles. Expand
