"(PS5 version): a mixed bag in terms of realization, mostly due to the small studio. i like lovecraftian stories, and this one and its setting struck the right chords with me. technically it's a big mess, though. stiff and buggy with weird transitions (especially when diving), jerky, outdated combat mechanics and some pretty cringeworthy acting. but hey, you can destroy mankind and make the world end, so who am i to complain?"

"i'm way past the target audience and bought it due to a lack of competition on the next gen exclusives front...but! fuck me, this is pretty much the perfect 3rd person shooter/platformer. great, steadily evolving gameplay that hardly feels repetitve or boring, superb graphics and sound, clever and varied world-design...and the weapons are crazy fun, packing absurd amounts of satisfactory punch, especially when upgraded or omega'd. definitely the first time i got really excited for "next gen"."

"short, hence too half-assed worldbuilding that won't make you care for any of the outcomes. which is sad, because, aside from some weird puzzle advancement choices, it has most of the other hallmarks of a good point & click title. and the augmentations that fit your character are neat. but it's all over so soon, there should've been way more content about all of it. are they planning on a director's cut here, too? and will it matter? doubt it."

"scratches that certain point & click itch pretty well, although most puzzles are fairly obvious and there's close to none "outside the box" thinking necessary. the story gets increasingly stupid until everything that was setup intriguingly is simply brushed off into the metaverse. too bad when you've written yourself into a corner, eh?"

"i think we can all agree on how much of a letdown the ending is and there's no way they didn't make it up as they went along. still, some of the fallout may be accredited to the problems with any crowdfunding gig and we shouldn't discourage the masters of old to go on with their craft. 2/3 of it are really enjoyable, plus, i'm a sucker for profanity, so i'll bump up the 66 points an additional 9 for ransome the clown, especially with the unbeeped DLC. Fuck you!"

"Boy, was this great back then! Boy, is this lame now."

"it doesn't really deviate from the explore, collect and improve-formula other genre entries offer, but there's yet something special about it. is it the colourful, beautiful, immersive underwater world? is it the awesome sound-design? is it the array of pretty cool tools and gadgets? or the way you're introduced into the world by just the right balance of freedom and plot? ok, yes, that's it. all of it. it's great."

"Sometimes, i don't get software developers. You build an open world brimming with style, atmosphere and potential. And then you put nothing in it. Du'dum."

"Has some of the most varied gameplay i have ever encountered, especially in a coop-game. The story is more or less redundant, with standard characters having standard arcs. Plus the annoying talking book. Shame it didn't have more mature moments that genuinely caught me off guard, like the toy-elephant scene. That was pretty amazing! Should you have time on your hands (we all know you do) and a friend to play with (we all know you don't) give it a go!"
