The Talos Principle: Deluxe Edition is a fantastic package of two great first-person puzzlers. It’s basically identical to the PC version, so if you’ve got those already there’s not much need to double-dip, but otherwise it’s a must-own. The environments are gorgeous, the puzzle design excellent and while the two stories may be a bit heavy-handed in their philosophical overtones, it’s an interesting world with some wonderfully human moments in its mysterious apocalypse.
Talos Principle is a meaty, long puzzle game. Depending on the ability of the player to solve the puzzles and progress the story really determines how long it will take most to complete the game. Even after it’s over the additional expansion pack included here adds even more time and difficulty into the mix.
Action junkies will probably come away underwhelmed but if you are looking for a change of pace in your game playing regime this thoughtful, Carl Sagan Cosmos-like experience is a wonderful candidate to consider. Naughty Dog went on from “Uncharted,” to create the masterpiece, “The Last Of Us.” Will Croteam follow a similar evolving game creation path? I’m keeping my fingers crossed and can’t wait to see what they have next in their pipeline.
