Overall What Remains of Edith Finch is a masterfully executed story and experience. If you are looking for an intriguing story to take an active part in and experience this is a great game to check out. I know I’ll be thinking about this game and going back to it to look closer at various aspects for a long time to come and is well worth anyone’s time.

What Remains of Edith Finch is a masterful piece of storytelling: gorgeous, skillfully told, uplifting in places, and devastating in others. Avoid seeing too many spoilers— seriously, I can't think of a game more in need of being unspoiled than this one—and play it.

In What Remains of Edith Finch, death is a certainty and life is the surprise. Its stories are enchanting, despite their unhappy ends. I was sad I never had the chance to know the Finches while they were alive, but thankful for the opportunity, however brief, to learn a bit about them. The final farewell left me crying, but What Remains of Edith Finch is, without doubt, love.

First-person, narrative-driven games generally follow a pattern. What Remains of Edith Finch plays with those established conventions to create a beautiful story that breaks your heart, while making you smile just as much. A triumph in the genre.

If you’re more like me, though, and deviate from the assessment of tragic events as an inherently higher form, then you may find the Finch’s tale doesn’t activate your almonds as much as it probably should. Still, as a spooky, logical evolution of the Gone Homes and Firewatches of the world, with an impressive short-story style to boot, What Remains of Edith Finch is ultimately worth your time if its premise grabs you.

Each of the vignettes is so distinct and surprising that I didn’t have enough time to absorb and dissect what I had just played before being whisked away to the next one. But after fully piecing together the threads of the family and sifting through the allegories of their final moments, I was left with a beautiful, heartbreaking mosaic that exudes life, even when mired in death.

After Edith finishes reminiscing, the text whooshes up the fireplace. A neat bit of animation at first, what it really shows is that her words are one with the house. They build her memories, construct the past around your ears while the portraits on the walls and the book titles whisper the anecdotes she doesn’t mention. The Finch home doesn’t have secrets anymore. But it’ll always have those personalities waiting inside.

Poignant and powerful, What Remains of Edith Finch has set a new standard in storytelling. Don’t be put off by its brevity – these are two of the most enjoyable hours I have ever spent in front of my PC monitor.

What Remains of Edith Finch es un cuento. Uno que no sólo hace recuperar nuestra fe en este estilo narrativo, sino que lo aviva con fuerza gracias a ideas ingeniosas y un ritmo que hace imposible no avanzar hasta el final. Atractivo, mágico y con una gran imaginación, Edith Finch es el mejor walking simulator del año, y de los que mejor ha captado el alma del género.

La nueva propuesta de Giant Sparrow no se limita a seguir los pasos de Unfinished Swan sino que han sabido darle una vuelta al género, no olvidarse de que es un videojuego y usar eso a su favor para enriquecer la narración, que de por sí es hermosa y conmovedora. Si durase más probablemente se diluiría su efecto, pero es cierto que cuando algo es tan bueno siempre se quiere que la experiencia siga y siga.

What Remains of Edith Finch ist mit Sicherheit kein fröhliches Spiel. Allerdings ist es eines voll von bittersüßer Lebensfreude, das uns zeigt, wie kostbar die kurzen Momente sind, die uns mit den Menschen, die wir lieben, geschenkt werden. Es ist eine Erinnerung daran, dass wir nicht nur traurig sein sollen, wenn etwas ein Leben zu Ende geht, sondern dankbar, dass es überhaupt erst eine Chance bekommen hat.

Bien réalisé, proposant une atmosphère surréaliste envoûtante et une narration de grande qualité, cette petite série de poèmes macabres fait littéralement plonger le joueur dans une histoire étrange dont il se souviendra longtemps. À moins de détester les "walking simulators", comme certains aiment appeler ce genre de jeu, je ne vois aucune vraie bonne raison de passer à côté.

What Remains of Edith Finch intègre le podium des aventures courtes, émouvantes, et diablement bien pensées. Un jeu qui vous émerveillera, un jeu que vous ne referez sans doute jamais, mais que vous n'aurez de cesse de recommander. S'il vous intéresse, ruez-vous dessus sans trop vous renseigner ou vous spoiler, car plus vous en verrez et moins les rouages du titre vont vous marquer... Une pépite, assurément.
Tommaso PuglieseApr 25, 2017
What Remains of Edith Finch è un titolo unico, sorprendente, toccante: un racconto interattivo dotato di una colonna sonora incredibilmente ispirata, uno script magistrale e scelte di design assolutamente convincenti, che per larga parte riescono a mascherare la realtà indipendente del progetto. È però anche un'esperienza molto breve, che si completa nell'arco di due ore e sulla base di tale limite risulta un po' troppo costosa.
Gianluca ArenaMay 02, 2017
La messa in scena, la scelta delle voci e quella della visuale in prima persona, gli argomenti trattati, i tempi della narrazione concorrono tutti a rendere What remains of Edith Finch un racconto straordinario, un viaggio triste, breve ma quantomai significativo, nella natura umana, nella sua fragilità e nei legami che essa intrattiene con l'universo.

Любопытно, но при всей своей безысходности What Remains of Edith Finch вовсе не стремится погрузить игрока в депрессию – скорее, наоборот, она пропитана светлым фатализмом, призывающим не жалеть о том, чему так и не суждено было быть, а ценить то, что эти люди успели испытать, и то, что они после себя оставили.
