Although Tacoma is short, it does a fantastic job telling the stories of the different characters throughout the game, using the non-sequential AR memory recordings to build emotional ties to each. Tacoma is a simple, yet fun narrative driven game that brings time and space together.
Tacoma mostly nails its gameplay and narrative, but the game suffers from some crippling technical problems on Xbox One, like crashing and other issues. The game often chugs while traveling from the hub to different parts of the space station, and Amy’s arm tends to clip through doors and objects. Since Tacoma is a game that is built around immersion and atmosphere, the latter is especially jarring and can take players right out of the experience.
That's not to say that Tacoma isn't impactful. I'm still thinking about it, inferring what wasn't spelled out for me and wondering about the complex politics of its near-future world. Mostly, though, I'm deeply attached to the Tacoma crew, who I only got to know through projections and the things they left behind.
