The end of the game has two endings the player can choose from at the very end. After choosing, there was no explanation of what happened. It just kind of ended. Overall, the entire story felt a bit hollow. I had no reason to connect to anything in the game. Nothing in the story was explored in depth. The hotel as a set-piece was wasted. The whole narrative was shallow. The game shows potential, but it is so incohesive and unimpressive that it flounders as a whole.

You can get stuck at certain parts without a way out, having to restart the entire level because you made one wrong decision is infuriating, and a very common occurrence in this game. If you have a itch for a first-person puzzle game this will probably fulfill your needs. However, if you are looking for a good storyline there are better options. Considering the price it isn’t really too bad of a choice for about 5 hours of fun.

Despite these issues, I would be remiss in not recommending The Spectrum Retreat if you’re a fan of Portal-esque puzzle solving. It may not retain the same level of quality throughout, but the highs are as good as any puzzle game in the past five or so years, and the story, while it eventually sputters, carries many interesting ideas of its own. For anyone else, you can probably afford to give this a pass; there are too many niggles and the story doesn’t carry enough weight to satisfy those who aren’t big puzzle fans.
