    Outer Wilds' compact clockwork universe does more with twenty-two minutes than its spacefaring peers can imagine in a lifetime. It treats curiosity as a Möbius strip and trusts its network of divine secrets will drive the player toward a reasoned conclusion. By turning away from the zeitgeist, Outer Wilds' sublime presence can only be defined as otherworldly.

    Rare is the game that comes along, one that believes in its hero - in you - so earnestly, and shows us the real value of being brave. [Issue#334, p.116]

    Outer Wilds It is one of the great sleepers of 2019, without any doubt. An space opera to recommend for its ingenious proposal and beautiful world, but maybe someone find too much effort needed to understand how their narrative and gameplay works.

    It may not have the grand scale of some other space exploration games but, frequent deaths included, Outer Wilds is such an enthralling excursion that you’d be mad to miss out.

    Given that Outer Wilds is all about discovering the sort of phenomena that once astonished and befuddled an advanced alien civilization, it seems right that I should have been unsettled by it at first.

    Outer Wilds provides an incredible and imaginative solar system to explore, one that is filled with genuine mystery and wonder, immersive music and an imaginative sci-fi lore. Still, the issues in control, gameplay, and level design hamper the intended blissful exploration which it tries to build its premise around.

    Enjoying Outer Wilds depends on your willingness to read guides and discuss the game online. Otherwise, you'll probably feel like you're regularly hitting your head on a brick wall as you try to make just an inch of progress.

    A truly special experience. Go in as blind as you can, and stick with it until the full solar system opens up to you.

    Outer Wilds story was immersive however I found interacting with different characters to be a little less immersive because there isn’t reallyOuter Wilds story was immersive however I found interacting with different characters to be a little less immersive because there isn’t really much that stands out in these side conversations that effect your overall experience. Outer Wilds was originally scheduled to release last year and was still seen by many to be a surprising release, upon launch information or hype surrounding the game was minute to say in the least. Outer Wilds takes you on adventure that’s rewarding no matter how many times you take to the 22-minute experience. Outer Wilds is about solving puzzles and exploring nooks and crannies and I’m pleased to say that solving these puzzles and exploring the different planets never seemed to give you the doldrums. Outer Wilds remained fresh and interesting due to the creativity in the puzzles and the story also played a big part in keeping things interesting even if the conversations with the characters were quite on the basic side. Nothing else about Outer Wilds feels basic though and without a doubt this game will surprise you in a number of ways because the amount of depth that’s present in the gameplay is definitely on the high side. In terms of problems, the game has very few and if you can look past the little bit of confusion due to not knowing what to do next, then you’ll find this game to be an excellent experience. Outer Wilds was definitely worth the wait because in terms of the puzzle genre this game stands out due to its uniqueness and depth that’s present in several areas. Outer Wilds just gets so much right and in a way it does breath some new life into the puzzle genre on a different level. Definitely a worthy addition to the Xbox One family of consoles. Expand

    Oh un indé tout frais fraîchement démoulé ! à à vous les grands espaces, l'exploration dans la petite fusée en fer blanc d'un micro-systèmeOh un indé tout frais fraîchement démoulé ! à à vous les grands espaces, l'exploration dans la petite fusée en fer blanc d'un micro-système solaire avec des... planètes (?) grosses comme des pois chiches ou presque.

    On incarne un petit lutin qui sort de sa cabane en bois, un lutin à sale gueule d'ailleurs, une espèce de bonhomme bleu si j'en crois les sales gueules de ses congénères que l'on croise. Bon, c'est pas grave puisqu'on est en vue subjective de toute façon. Ce qui est grave quand même, ce sont les graphismes gravissimes : c'est de l'étron indé 100% pure terrine de goret 4 couleurs sorti d'une latrine.

    En tout cas, on a le temps de s'entraîner avec la combinaison de l'espace en gravité zéro et on se rend compte que c'est archi-pourri. On se dit alors que si la navette spatiale se pilote comme ça, on est pas sorti du bois... Or, elle se "pilote" exactement comme ça, à savoir comme un mammouth bourré sur le verglas. Bonjour les dégâts.

    C'est donc à chier par terre (évidemment) et le système de sauvegarde se fait en activant des statues : sauvegarde fixe, localisée, unique pour bien te faire chier à recommencer parce que l'éléphant sous crack qu'on pilote s'est gauffré dans la planète-pois chiche de mes deux.

    De toute manière, c'est tellement mal fait, c'est tellement laid que ça ne peut que se crasher dans la poubelle la plus proche. Espérons que c'est biodégradable à défaut d'être recyclable.
