FAR: Lone Sails is contemplative and thoughtful in ways that adventure games are usually not. When it plays to its strengths, it makes you realize where you are, the camera zooming out, the soundtrack crashing down. By refusing to explain or expand on the game world, it becomes richer and more fascinating. The frenzied action to propel the vehicle is a counterpoint to its usual quietness and serenity. Few games can offer this range of experiences at the same time.
Far: Lone Sails allows players to complete the game at their own pace, and some might find it to be relatively brief. As a matter of fact, the short length is the game’s biggest weakness. I wanted more, but what’s there is something I treasured. Furthermore, though the puzzles are interesting their simplicity leaves something to be desired. Such brevity will clock in about 4 hours max.
Lone Sails is a transfixing, lovely experience, one that takes recurring indie game tropes and does something unique and fun with them. It's short enough that you could play through it in a single two or three-hour session, but it will likely stick with you for a long time. I can see myself going back in a few months just to revisit the ship, like checking in on an old friend.
