After waiting for Below for over five years, I’m left conflicted. On one hand, it’s a beautiful and deeply engrossing roguelike with fantastic art direction and stunning music from Jim Guthrie. But it also doesn’t quite jive with some of its gameplay systems and, at times, feels like a confusing mixture of ideas.
Below features everything I love about video games: exploration, adventure, enjoyable combat, and puzzles. And while I struggled a bit whenever one of my heroes would inevitably bite the dust, I always felt the urge to jump back in and push deeper into the game’s numerous mysteries. That said, you’ll need to work hard to get any sort of satisfaction from Below, though I will gladly add that it’s rewarding if you approach it with the right frame of mind.
Below's extreme demands for patience and tolerance remain right through to the game's mysterious ending. But despite its assured aesthetic and the initial pleasures of discovery, Below will eventually turn into a slog for all but the most committed of players.
