    Weakless is an adventure game focusing on the relationship between two characters: The Blind One and The Deaf One. During their journey they will have to overcome the obstacles standing in their way, and face their own limitations.
    The core of Weakless is solving puzzles and exploring the world using characters' unique skills - hearing and vision. The player controls one character at the time, which means they can't use both senses simultaneously.

    Two heroes, who perceive their surroundings in completely different ways, and can overcome adversities thanks to cooperation.
    A diverse world with a rich history waiting to be discovered.

    Weakless is not exactly a masterpiece, but it is a beautiful little game with an undeniable amount of charm and a heartfelt message. The game tells a story of the beauty of nature and perseverance through friendship. The narrative is kept to a minimum to ensure you experience its themes and concepts through the gameplay, which is a lot of fun despite some glaring rough edges.

    Weakless is a unique game that presents a unique performance, with characters that we can empathize with.

    Weakless is a very short game with very easy puzzles. It is set in a beautiful world with good but repetitive music. It has unique characters that forces players to play as both a blind and a deaf character which I found to be very different and fun.

    Weakless brings some interesting and thought-provoking ideas on the table, but those ideas feel underdeveloped and the overall experience is too short, especially considering the launch price.

    Weakless is a good idea that hasn't been fully realized. The idea of different game perspectives is well thought-out, but everything else is content to be mediocre. From the puzzles to the stages to the story, everything feels familiar and disposable, with no one element to make up for another's shortcomings. It isn't a terrible title if you can overlook some of the bugs, but Weakless is certainly a title that would be better suited for a subscription service as opposed to full ownership.

    A fascinating world with luscious forestry and an intriguing species. You can tell a lot of passion went into developing it. The puzzles are quite simple but still satisfying to complete. It’s short, which isn’t usually an issue for me, but the pacing seemed a bit off. I felt as if I were in the middle of a game because of how the puzzles go from easy to moderate in difficulty. Even though you have two characters to control, most of the time you’ll be using Deaf since he is fast and you can really appreciate the beautiful world. There are a decent amount of tweaks that could really enhance the experience while playing, specifically fixed bugs and a narrator to tell the story as if it was being read to you like a book.

    The gameplay features are so modest that you know everything you will be doing in the game just 15 minutes in. [02/2020, p.56]

In Weakless there's no humanity that we know it totally different world and the creatures living, it looks like three's and you controlling two of these odd creatures. Both of them had been ostracized because one of them which is the little one don't have horns, and the other one don't have the light orb on his head which makes him blind.
    These two decide to live together and that's where the story begins. Little puzzles you need to solve to achieve your goals and this must be said the game is really atmospheric and music's are really cool. You have to change between two of them over and over again to solve the puzzles. The little one has the ability of make plants over grown which makes you able to cross most of the time and the big guy is mostly muscle. When you controlling the blind one your screen is blurry and black and white
    but you can lighten it up with a skill for a short time and this how you solve the puzzles . The puzzles are not that challenging but the game still have the atmosphere to hang up there and make the overall experience solid for the Xbox One release.
