Summary

ABZÛ is an epic descent into the depths of the sea, where players will explore beautifully rendered ocean environments with fluid swimming controls. The experience draws inspiration from the deep innate narrative that we all carry within our subconscious: the story of ABZÛ is a universal myth that resonates across cultures. The name references a concept from the oldest mythologies; it is the combination of the two ancient words AB, meaning ocean, and ZÛ, meaning to know. ABZÛ is the ocean of wisdom.

It’ll toy with your emotions and it’ll constantly amaze, if you open your mind and let it in. If you approach Abzû expecting a classic video game experience in terms of gameplay, then chances are you’re going to be disappointed. But if you forget, for just a moment, those preconceived notions of what a “video game” actually means, then Abzû could be something truly special.

But when you let go of any expectations of emergent behavior, open-world exploration, meaningful narrative, or gameplay, Abzu is still a thrilling once-and-done guided tour full of light, color, and sound. It might not appreciate the vastness of the sea, but it appreciates the magic and the majesty.

We'd been waiting for a chance to explore the depths of Abzu's world, but were surprised to find them lacking. Abzu is still an experience we were glad to witness, but its substance is all too minor to make it more than a fleeting encounter with awe.
