Somehow, Outer Wilds manages to blow other space exploration-based titles away for a mere $10. It's a game where the vastness may be limited, but the depth is not; a testament to the never-ending drive for creativity, fueled by enthusiasm and passion. Much like exploration in real-life, each encounter brings something new. something impactful and meaningful; if a slice of life is but a game, then Outer Wild would have captured its very essence. The first true must-play of 2019.

Each new discovery or observation brings with it a real sense of joy and wonder and the pleasing notion that you’re the first person to behold each particular oddity. It may not have the grand scale of some other space exploration games but, frequent deaths included, Outer Wilds is such an enthralling excursion that you’d be mad to miss out.

Outer Wilds' tricky exploration and puzzle solving is definitely an acquired taste. Its very specific brand of active storytelling differs wildly from highly guided open-worlds that many of us think of when we talk about non-linear gameplay. Though it can be confounding at times when events don't unfold in precisely the right way, the feeling of discovering something new about the story, or following a couple of facts to something totally unexpected on a faraway planet far outweighs those hiccups.

As someone who loves adventure and puzzle games, Outer Wilds was a match made in heaven. It’s not action-packed, and there’s not crafting or deep survival mechanics like most space games have. Instead, it delivers an engaging mystery that isn’t spoon fed to you. It offers its own unique challenge that I highly recommend to anyone that loves video games or space.

Of course, the flaws are tiny flaws at best, because you don't play Outer Wilds for its characters or narrative, but for the fantastic adventure and all the wonderful places you get to explore. By stripping down the vastness of the universe, Mobius Games has managed to create something more special than games No Man's Sky and Elite: Dangerous were able to with infinite worlds at their fingertips. The moral of the story is simple - bigger is not always better.

Outer Wilds is good-looking and quite unique in its subgenre, and there’s a compelling, intriguing mystery to solve that will keep you guessing as you progress across the galaxy. It’s not the most exciting or involving game I’ve played in recent months, but it more than makes up for that with charm and originality.

Outer Wilds es uno de los grandes tapados del año, sin ningún lugar a dudas. Una aventura fácil de recomendar por su ingeniosa propuesta y resultona ambientación, pero puede que pocos lleguen a dedicarle el esfuerzo necesario para entender el funcionamiento de su narrativa y jugabilidad.

Su sistema solar desafía las leyes de la física, pero al mismo tiempo abraza la ciencia para crear situaciones de juego únicas. Como experiencia mecánica, tiene sus limitaciones. Como experiencia narrativa, huye de efectismos fáciles. Pero como obra de ingeniería jugable, es una carta de amor a la curiosidad por el mundo que nos rodea y al modo en el que funcionan los propios videojuegos.

Outer Wilds entführt in ein Sonnensystem, das in einer Zeitschleife gefangen ist und immer wieder aufs Neue zerstört wird. Warum das so ist, kann man herausfinden, indem man mit einem kleinen Raumschiff die Planeten, Monde und andere Himmelskörper nach Hinweisen auf die sich anbahnende Katastrophe erkundet. Dabei kommt man mit faszinierenden Welten und Phänomenen in Kontakt, macht rätselhafte Entdeckungen und sogar verschollen geglaubte Astronautenkameraden wieder ausfindig.

Knackige, aber faire Rätsel, eine atmosphärische Spielwelt und einfallsreiche Ideen machen Outer Wilds zum interstellaren Indie-Geheimtipp.

Véritable ode à la découverte et à l'émerveillement de tous les instants, Outer Wilds nous a collé une baffe littéralement cosmique, en proposant de partir encore et encore jouer les archéologues de l'espace au sein d'un système solaire d'une formidable cohérence, et pensé de bout en bout. Avec trois fois rien, Mobius Digital nous embarque pour une aventure des plus mémorables, dans laquelle vous bondirez de planète en planète à la recherche d'une explication quantique qui aborde avec beaucoup de justesse des thématiques fascinantes de notre époque.

Outer Wilds redéfinit d’une manière captivante le sens du mot exploration dans le jeu vidéo. Par un scénario original, qui plus est bourré d’humour, et grâce à un game design ingénieux basé sur la répétition d’une boucle temporelle de destruction, le titre encourage sans cesse le joueur à s’engager sur la voie de sa propre curiosité. Les bonnes surprises s’enchaînent alors au rythme calme de nos découvertes et les mystères de ce système solaire délicieusement atypique se dévoilent peu à peu face à nos yeux d’explorateur en herbe.

La produzione di Mobius Digital Games e Annapurna Interactive esercita un fascino viscerale sugli amanti dei misteri e della fantascienza, e possiede un potenziale enorme che riesce ad esprimere grazie ad una massiccia dose di creativitĂ  applicata al gaming e una scrittura di qualitĂ  che trasuda dai muri, letteralmente, del gioco. E se nel gioco vi servirĂ  un traduttore per comprendere i messaggi dei Nomai, confidiamo che le parole che abbiamo speso fin qui siano abbastanza chiare da spingervi a dargli una chance presto o tardi.
