    Supraland has come out of nowhere and absolutely blown me away. Taking inspiration from some of the best games ever, it manages to somehow blend them all together into a cohesive whole, constantly surprising and delighting us in equal measure. Combat is a bit weak, and the solutions can at time be a bit too obtuse, but these are small blemishes on what is otherwise an incredibly fun adventure that is funny, rewarding and something that’ll keep us coming back for sometime yet. That it also launched on Gamepass means that it’ll hopefully gain the love and success it clearly deserves.

    Supraland is simply one of the best sandbox games I’ve ever played. It perfectly embodies the term, letting players define their experience. The only shortcomings in this title are some generic and lackluster character and item designs, but that’s a nitpick when stacked against everything Supraland has to offer. The gameplay feels like a love letter to a laundry list of classic games, doing justice to all of them. Supraland is a must-play game for fans of the open world.

    Supraland on Xbox One may be simplistic and a tad easy overall, but don’t let first impressions fool you. Its focus on exploratory gameplay makes it loads of fun to play. What results from it is a well-rounded, entertaining adventure which is one of the best experiences of its kind available today.

    Supraland pushes boundaries to try to create something unique, and for the most part, it succeeds with gusto. It’s a game where you really feel like you’re exploring someone’s imagination; a hodgepodge of wonderful ideas that combine together well to create a delightful experience. Its combat may feel superfluous, but its excellent puzzle design and beautiful world more than makes up for it.

    If I come off angry it’s because clearly the developers of Supraland know how to make a great game, but I grew so tired of the more obtuse puzzles that I got to the volcano and quit. It just wasn’t fun anymore. In conclusion it’s the puzzles being such a big focus of this game but seemingly such a small focus of the development that I can’t recommend this game. Sure, others might get a kick out of it, but to me it doesn’t work as a puzzle game, the combat isn’t there enough to really comment on outside of it being okay, and the exploration is hampered by the puzzles so ultimately Supraland is a puzzle game that doesn’t really work. When the puzzles are good they still aren’t great, and that’s unfortunate.

    Plenty of gameplay to be had, with lots of chill exploring to do.

Explore, solve puzzles, beat up monsters, find secret upgrades and new abilities that help you reach new places. Can you imagine it? There's a free demo for the game publishers being kind to check it out prior to buying. Supraland embraces creativity, functioning primarily as an FPS puzzler akin to Portal. While there are no portals in Supraland, the game deploys a similar design philosophy, giving players a few simple tools which are then expanded upon through clever use of the environment. Blending a number of genres and styles together makes Supraland feel like a hodgepodge of a product, but a glorious hodgepodge indeed. This is because the game’s various elements all feel well-executed and implemented into the game independently. Exploding groups of enemies with energy blasts feels just as satisfying as going sword-to-sword in old-fashioned combat. It's harder to write about good ones because you just can't help yourself about writing all the details you see yet I'll be cutting it to chase and this game is a game that's worth.the price of admission and deserves your time. I can fully recommend that you add this one to your Xbox One library ASAP!. Expand

    People comparing this to Zelda, Portal, Metroid, etc. is an insult to those games because supraland is a cheap imitation at best. Sure its notPeople comparing this to Zelda, Portal, Metroid, etc. is an insult to those games because supraland is a cheap imitation at best. Sure its not horrible and has flashes of brilliance with its puzzle solving but that's really all there is because the combat is dull and repetitive. The toybox art style is mostly used as a crutch for the bland visuals and empty environments, there's not one level that has a unique aesthetic to it. There's no valid reason to play this when you really think about it, there's too many games that have done what this game does but better. If you want a better puzzle adventure game play Zelda, if you want a better first person combat game with exploration then play Elder Scrolls in stead, if you want a puzzle game with an actual story then play Portal. Don't waste your time with mediocre games like this, its lowest common denominator gameplay mixed with low effort art direction and average at best music. Expand
