There Came an Echo definitely isn’t for everybody. It’s not perfect by any means. Technical hiccups (which Iridium has been working up through release to fix) and lackluster animation leave a lot to be desired; but, it’s story -- both entertaining and intellectually demanding, albeit a bit convoluted and self-indulgent at times -- more than makes up for any gameplay issues you may encounter.
There Came an Echo feels like more of a proof of concept than an actual game. The voice control does work well if you have the right headset, but it only goes so far in making up for the dreary gameplay on offer. And while the story is serviceable enough and the graphics are eye-catching, they don't do enough to turn this into a compelling game.
