For a game replete with darkness and some surprising gore, it also contains a great deal of comedic writing to balance out the experience. Ultimately, The Fall feels like you’re playing your way through a movie. Aside from a few control hiccups, it’s a playable movie in a genuinely good way.
Worth noting, the pacing is by no means perfect, with the ending coming off feeling especially rushed, but the rest of the experience makes good use of a slow, methodical approach. Atmospheric and appropriately lonely, with enough narrative weight to think on, this makes for some enjoyable point-and-click fun.
What The Fall offers in story and atmosphere is a little let down by some clunky controls. It’s an enjoyable exploration which will be lengthened by some difficult puzzles if you don’t use a guide, so by all means go for it if you didn’t try it on Wii U.
