Vane is exhausting, ponderous, bewildering, endlessly frustrating, needlessly obtuse, narratively unsatisfying, mechanically clumsy, and technically shoddy, all shot through a camera so ill-equipped to deal with the rudimentary task of showing you what's happening on screen that you might as well pop a blindfold on and try using The Force.
Vane is a unique experience and for that in itself Friend & Foe should be applauded. As an artwork, it’s compelling. But as a game, it’s recommended with strings attached: this is a harsh, uncompromising world and you’re going to need to struggle to survive.
I normally don’t have problems with experiential games like this; in fact, I love games like Inside, Ico, and Shadow of the Colossus that Vane is clearly pulling from. That being said, Vane just ends up being a mishmash of impressive visuals and a few intriguing concepts that never really materialize into anything truly worthwhile.
