I found that as the credits rolled on The Touryst's strange ending, I was keen for them to finish so I could jump straight back in and mop up the remaining objectives. Admittedly, even if you want to do absolutely everything, The Touryst isn't very long—my completion total sat at 94% after five and a half hours. But perhaps it's better this way--after all, the best vacations often end before you've had a chance to really get homesick. It's the next best thing to an actual holiday.
The Touryst is a wonderful slice of adventure gaming paradise, but it features some tough platforming and challenges that can be a little frustrating. Ultimately, though, these concerns are minor when compared to the visual splendour and dream-like atmosphere of the various islands and environments. Although it might not take you too long to see and do everything, that’s probably because you’ll have such a hard time putting it down.
That’s the thing with The Touryst: If you view it from a more cliff-notes — for lack of a better term — perspective, just appreciating the total volume of activities you can partake in, it’s a pleasant one. But if you truly hone in on each specific point, and each specific activity, you realize they were simply slightly above average; there isn’t a truly big “WOW” moment in terms of gameplay.
