    FAR: Changing Tides should very much be seen as a companion piece to FAR: Lost Sails, but it’s able to deliver a gaming experience that contains pretty much everything you could want. It will take you on a journey through a strange abandoned land that is beautiful, accompanied by a brilliant soundtrack and new surprises along the way.

    FAR: Changing Tides ably evokes the blissful passion of travel. It is the perfect antidote to overly-stuffed, bloated video games.

    FAR: Changing Tides’ gameplay loop of keeping your ramshackle vehicle running is simple but enjoyable. When you get into a good rhythm, you feel at one with your craft, everything goes smoothly for a minute, and you can enjoy the ride until the next mast snaps or abandoned wreckage blocks your way. It takes patience, but when every quick task is rewarded by a hum, whir, or click, and every obstacle inspires as much awe as it does terror, it’s all worth it.

    Mysterious, beautiful, and almost dreamlike, FAR: Changing Tides betters its predecessor, delivering a truly memorable and engaging seafaring journey.

    Far: Changing Tides is very similar to its predecessor, and is again a succinct adventure characterized by a unique, painterly style and a very serene atmosphere. What a nice game.

    FAR: Changing Tides is the follow-up to FAR: Lone Sails, following a little boy named Toe as he leaves his home in a makeshift boat after an unseen apocalyptic event. There is no dialogue or combat, leaving all of FAR's storytelling to be interpreted by the player as they solve puzzles to overcome obstacles on their travels.

    Despite its shortcomings, FAR: Changing Tides is stunning and is an atmospheric triumph. I loved the developer’s vision for a doomed future, and the array of environments you explore.

    A simple but entertaining game that you will enjoy.

    Because Far: Changing Tides is an indie game, you must not spect excellent graphics, intense music, or very complex history.

    What you will find is an elegant and entertaining game. The story can be simple, but the atmosphere will introduce you deeply to the feelings of the protagonist and his intense adventure to find other survivors of the flood. Other games with huge budgets but boring histories and large cinematic never accomplish this challenge.

    I enjoyed the relationship that the protagonist has with his ship. He is entirely alone, but they need to take care of the needs of his ship, creating an exciting feeling of companionship.

    I recommend this game for these types of seasonality where we are in the middle of the AAA launches at the end of the year the last year and the end of the current year.

    The cons: it is very simple (it will never be considered one of the most fantastic games of all time), and the challenges don't have enough clues to resolve them.

    I don't give a better score because, even though it is a good game, I consider that the scores of 8 or above must be for more complex games

    But the graphic is cruel. On the Series S it is a torture for the eyes.
    Also, the game is in duration tough and I was bored too fast.

    Giant snoozefest with clunky controls that oftentimes fails completely at communicating what it wants the player to do. The puzzles are OK,Giant snoozefest with clunky controls that oftentimes fails completely at communicating what it wants the player to do. The puzzles are OK, but it's nothing you haven't seen done a lot better if you've played the likes of LIMBO and INSIDE. Couldn't even be bothered to finish this because I was just bored out of my mind. Expand
