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.

Far: Lone Sails is the kind of game that sticks with you after seeing credits. It delivers a fascinating mystery in a strange land with engaging puzzles, and couples that with a relationship between the player and their oversized mode of transportation. A few areas lack polish and some of the physics felt off here and there, but none of that stopped the story from engaging me in a big way.

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.

It executes this in a way that evokes a sense of bonding and ownership with both protagonist and vessel that few games do in such a concise way. For those who are looking for unique experiences in a medium that has a plethora of mundane and generic concepts that have been done to death, FAR: Lone Sails achieves a high mark.

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.

FAR: Lone Sails has quite a few awards and it is easy to see why during gameplay. Okomotive has done a beautiful job with their debut game of weaving together simple a simple story and gameplay with gorgeous visuals and soundtrack. If you’re looking for a post-apocalyptic survival game with lots of zombies to kill, this won’t be it. However, if a nice little journey over a dried-up seabed with a beautiful soundtrack is what you’re looking for, then you’ll enjoy FAR: Lone Sails‘ trip.

FAR: Lone Sails is an emotive trip through a dying, yet beautiful world. It's a journey that doesn't last for long, and whose low replay value makes it hard to come back to it... and yet it's also one that's hard to let go once you start it. Fans of such games are definitely advised to give it a go - oh, and don't wait for a discount because its worthy of its price tag as it is.

Everything about FAR: Lone Sails points to how obviously passionate the developers are about this project. It is positively brimming with soul and heart, which is understandable when you see the story behind the game. Starting as a student thesis in 2015, the game has evolved significantly since then and travelled all around the world, fitting for a game about a journey. I have only praise for FAR, and I heartily recommend it.

Far: Lone Sails ist ein einsames Spiel und bietet keine einladende Umgebung - dennoch entfaltet das Spiel bereits nach wenigen Minuten so etwas wie eine postapokalyptische Seefahrer-Romantik, die mich umgehend in ihren melodramatischen Bann zog. Nur ich, meine Maschine und etwas Wind in den Segeln.

Nach nicht einmal drei Stunden ist die wundervolle Reise allerdings vorüber und es gibt Momente, in denen wollte ich manche der Schauplätze länger und spielerisch sinnvoller erkunden. Abgesehen davon gehört das Abenteuer des kleinen Mantels an Bord des mächtigen Walrosses aber zu den schönsten, die ich in den letzten Jahren erlebt habe!
Pierpaolo Greco — May 12, 2018
FAR: Lone Sails cerca disperatamente di seguire le orme di alcune illustri fonti d'ispirazione quali Limbo e Journey e, se pure non risulta mai essere inferiore ai migliori esponenti del mercato indie da un punto di vista artistico e visivo, inciampa nel suo fragilissimo gameplay troppo diluito e privo di uno spessore memorabile.
Domenico Musicò — Jun 08, 2018
La premessa e i toni dell'avventura sembrano voler far presagire qualcosa di molto più grande, che alla fine non arriva mai davvero. Il vero preludio alla rivelazione è l'avventura stessa e il modo in cui vi conduce per mano, il suo parlarvi in silenzio di una civiltà caduta in rovina per chissà quale calamità naturale o guerra.

سفر تنها و دوبعدی دوستداشتنی Far: Lone Sails به دوردستها، هر چند کوتاه ولی با چشماندازی متفاوت در این سبک که تعریفش دشوار است صورت گرفته و اگر ۱۵ دلار ته حسابتان مانده در خریدش شک نکنید. اگر هم عاشق ایندیهای متفاوت هستید و از تجربههای منحصربهفرد لذت میبرید، وقت آن رسیده تا حسابتان را شارژ کنید.
