I think World to the West presents some very strong ideas, but the execution doesn’t always translate to captivating gameplay. If you’re on the fence, my recommendation would be adding it to your wish list for a future sale. There’s fun to be had here, but Rain Games’ earlier release, the less expensive Teslagrad, might be a better fix.
While I’m ultimately coming away from World to the West more disappointed than I expected, I admire the expanse and ambition. It’s a gorgeous game with some delightful, puzzling moments. This is still a cool game, just one with some flaws that hold it back from being exemplary.
If you’re the type that allows yourself to become lost in the sense of adventure, then you really can’t go wrong with World to the West. There is some laborious puzzle design that leads to inconsistent pacing, but such moments never derail the experience enough – leaving you to become lost in the world’s charm, the witty repartee between its characters, and the story that it wants to tell.
