Far: Lone Sails is a well paced and designed narrative adventure. Even though it's sometimes hard to see what is going on, its meditative nature, puzzle design, and overall storytelling are top-notch. Its blend of mechanical interaction, traversal challenges, and quiet routine make it one of the more satisfying games in this genre that I've encountered.
Despite somewhat frustrating camera controls, and a sorely missed split-screen mode, Far: Lone Sails is a smart and enjoyable landship-management game
Not a lot of games are brave enough to tell a story this way, and to me, that’s exactly why Far: Lone Sails is a gem. It also helps that I was nursing injured wrists from overworking while I was going through this game, so the relaxing nature of the gameplay (and the welcome lack of hurried button-mashing) made it the perfect game for me to play at the time. In short, the bleak subject matter of the game, ironically, is a breath of fresh air. Tip: make sure you observe the little details, images, and texts in seemingly cluttered scenes, because these trinkets will make your overall experience all the richer.
