Journey to the Savage Planet is a great freshman effort from Typhoon and one of the early surprises of 2020. I will be thinking about this game as the year goes on as one of the best surprises I had literally no interest in upon kicking it off. If you enjoy exploration games like Metroid Prime I highly suggest giving it a go. The charm, humor, and game loop are just fresh enough to keep players interested in this relatively slow time for releases. The price tag also doesn’t hurt.
Journey to the Savage Planet was a wonderfully funny and entertaining adventure. The heavy focus on collecting won’t appeal to everyone but those who commit to the game’s exploration heavy gameplay will find a lot to love here. The appealing environments and interesting looking enemies offer a lot of reasons to keep exploring as you find out more about the planet.
Journey to the Savage Planet gets an awful lot right. The addictive main gameplay loop never becomes stale, while the imaginative world and beautiful visuals keep you enthralled in the experience. So while the game only lasts a dozen or so hours, it feels full of quality and has a special kind of wackiness to it. Of course, there are some issues when it comes to the simplified combat and lack of narrative though, they are simply not big enough problems to warrant switching to another game.
