The Vanishing of Ethan Carter looks amazing on PS4 with the update to Unreal Engine 4. When I played the game on PC I enjoyed it, but I think I went into it with some preconceived notions. This led me to not appreciating what it did for the genre as I do now after getting my hands on it for another go. If you love exploration, mystery, even a sense of wonder and awe, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter provides all this and more.

The mystery genre is something that is sorely lacking in the modern gaming landscape and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a great example for why this trend needs to end. Even while very short and including the overly tedious mine maze, the rest of the unique puzzles and superb mood, atmosphere, and music make The Vanishing of Ethan Carter one not to skip on PS4, especially for those that missed out on this hidden gem prior.

It should be noted, though. that once you’ve done all the puzzles, there is zero replay value. That being said, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a must-play for those who love these types of experiences.
