    I came away from Re:Turn – One Way Trip having had a great time. I really dug the 2D, 32-bit aesthetic that managed to get a good, creepy atmosphere across without relying on all the usual flash and pomp we’d expected of a horror title. The story is constantly engaging and well written, complimented by some great audio work. Some minor niggles in the constant back tracking and lack of helpful direction can lead to some frustration, especially if played across a few nights, but it doesn’t take too long to get back into the swing of things really. If you’re after a solid start to the Halloween season, this comes highly recommended.

    When it comes to 2D horror games, ReTurn - One Way Trip is a prime example of the genre with a captivating cast and thrilling story.

    Re:Turn is a great little gem that easily slots into any horror fan’s collection. The art and atmosphere alone are enough to warrant a look, and the story plays with some interesting themes of love, jealousy, and privilege. As someone who doesn’t normally go for horror games, this one’s hard to pass up.

    The story is a good one, the twists and turns are surprising, and the change between the past and present is very effective in its concept. The gameplay is very old-school though, and the tracking back is irritating at times, while a chase section in the latter moments is not really needed. Overall though, taking into account the price and the 4 to 5-hour running time, it delivers a decent piece of old-style adventure gaming.

    The developers have done a great job at filling the game with lots of appropriate tension building music and sounds effects.

The group consists of two couples and the their friend. It seems like there’s already cracks forming in the group as the couples argue and the friends discuss their fears of how their relationships will change when they move away from each other. It seems like a recipe for disaster from the start. Re:Turn offers a mix of many game genres. It’s a 2D side scroller, puzzle, horror, visual novel type of overall experience, which rightly begs the question if it’s possible to mix that all in a solid game. The developers have cherry picked the best parts of these genres and crafted something that’s enjoyable to enjoy creepy game, full of stories, edge story moments, and one jump scare that was actually surprising during my play. It’s also a game that gets better as you progress. The dialogue between the characters sounds as though it was written by an adult with little understanding of the younger cast, one character seeming to out as seemingly gay. The character’s sexuality wasn’t confirmed but that seems to be the story line After this, the gang tries to get some sleep, and the game actually begins. The main action is a 2D side scroller through engaging pixel art style. When Saki wakes in the night to find the rest of her friends have disappeared, she obviously she sets off in the dark to find them. She soon comes across an abandoned train. When she climbs inside, so begins a creepy quest to locate her friends. Considering how much this game tries to mix the genres, it’s impressive that it never feels overly complicated. Most of the game involves finding items that will help you move onto the next section mainly via keys, clues, or objects lost by other characters. It involves a fair amount of backtracking, but it never feels boring, and it’s always satisfying to have that moment after being stuck for a few minutes. Something shines in the game is the sound depth. The developers have done a great job at filling the game with lots of appropriate tension building music and sounds effects. Laughter to happy music to unexpected knocks, it all works together perfectly to create those why in the world moments that have you waiting for the scare to arrive. Many horror trinkets suck as dolls, masks, severed hands, and monsters abound. it makes for a great gaming experience and ode to the horror genre at its very core. This game is going to appeal to a few different groups of gamers. if you like horror, anime, visual novels, or puzzles, I would recommend giving Re: Turn - One Way Trip a go on your Xbox One. Overall a fun lgame for fans of horror, puzzle, or visual novels. It takes the best parts of these genres and makes them into a smooth experience for all to enjoy, filled with everything you would want in such a unique title for your Xbox One library. Expand
