    Sable lacks the same level of polish as Breath of the Wild or other AAA open-world titles. But as an indie game made by a small team, Sable is an unforgettable adventure that can elicit a deeply personal connection to the player.

    Sable it's a wonderful adventure that, at first sight, can seem slow and with frustrating aspects (slow pace, world apparently empty...), but its universe will hook you up with lots of mysteries to unfold and the main character's journey. All that with an unique audiovisual and aesthetics that will leave you wanting more, even with evident faults.

    There's a melancholia to Sable, wrapped up in the ruined cities and gigantic skeletons dotting its landscapes, but this is balanced with an infectious core of positivity running through the game. What it lacks in drama, it more than makes up for with sheer creativity and grandeur, leaving you with a sense of serenity much-needed and appreciated in these bizarre times. However, it all circles back to the joy of discovery: you might not know exactly what you’ll find as you peel back the layers of Midden, but it’s bound to be interesting.

    Sable is one of the latest games to get a day one release on Xbox’s Game Pass service so it’s almost impossible to not give it a recommendation for anyone with a subscription, but on the whole, I was somewhat let down. The game has some of the most visually stunning graphics I’ve seen, but the gameplay gets repetitive. Exploring the desolate expanse on your own terms is not as fun as it sounds; however, a compelling series of quests and wonderful writing throughout are just enough to keep you hooked and justify the price of admission if you’re already a Game Pass subscriber.

    Perhaps it's the writing, or those aforementioned best moments, or more likely some potent combination of factors, but Sable is special. I can feel it, still, hours after putting the pad down; the sensation of riding a geyser to a mountain peak, the crack of the crystal pillar under my avatar's feet. That golden sunrise breathing warmth back into this world. At the risk of repeating myself, it absolutely deserves to be played - just maybe not right now, and not quite like this.

    Sable’s unique art style, memorable characters and quests, and engaging open-ended formula are going to stick with me for a long time. But the numerous technical issues, wonky camera, and bland puzzles all make this otherwise compelling odyssey a lot rockier. Those issues can be frustratingly frequent distractions, but when they did manage to fade into the background I found myself mesmerized by Sable’s bizarre world of creepy worms, masked weirdos, and hoverbikes.

    A stunning visual style can’t hide the fact that Sable is not only uninterested in guiding its players but it doesn’t really care about entertaining them either.

    La DA est tellement a-typique et belle, vraiment l'impression de retrouver des bd des années 80.
    Je le referai sans hésitation afin de tester d'autres approche finale.
    juste Wouaw !

    So unique!
    Comic book artstyle, beautiful music.
    Must try if you enjoy open world games like Zelda/Mad max etc but without the combat.

On a series x and I can't pan the camera all the way around the player without stuttering, that is just an example of how bad it is in this game. Even when everything has loaded after the first pass the second pan stutters too. I don't understand how their engine is having such an issue but this game is not optimized for Series X as is listed in the features. Expand

    On ne sait pas trop ce qu’on doit y faire, ni comment le faire, vu que tout est sévèrement buggué ou bien pas fini, non implémenté… une sorte de jeu en version beta avec dans la version française des pronoms dégenrés (ou multi-genrés ?) systématiquement : on n’a que du « iel » ou du « luiel » (?!?) à chaque dialogue. Allez y comprendre quelque chose…

    De toute façon, la jouabilité est catastrophique, tout comme la technique à la masse de cet étron indé boulotté par deux caves. Ainsi, si le jeu est estampillé X|S, il tourne comme une patate sur Series X et saccade donc en permanence : une daube aussi laide qui tourne comme un tas de merde pareil, j’avais encore jamais vu ça ! bravo les blaireaux, vous êtes des champions de la nullité !
