Our videos of The Way

Our videos of The Way

Old as we are, it was hard to resist the urge to try The Way, a tribute to iconic games such as Another World, Flashback or Heart of Darkness. Now of course, although you can really see how fond of Chahi and Cuisset the developers are, don't expect the same level of quality when it comes to animations. That being said, Puzlling Dream has managed to create a very atmospheric universe which is undeniably appealing if you like old school action/adventure titles. The soundtrack sounds very solid from what we have heard, and it's nice to be obliged to take a few notes to solve puzzles. The only problem we have had so far is the limited character movements when climbing, something that was clearly intended by the dev team, but it made the chase scene you can see in the fourth video a bit frustrating as we really had no margin of error. One last thing you should know is that you will most probably die a lot, or simply get a bit sutck, just like in the old days. It's something we appreciate, but that might not be the case for everyone.

No no...can't keep watching it. I will get this for sure, so I don't want any spoilers. Refreshing to see retro style game without some minecraft mechanics. :-) Thanks GSY.

About the game

    Tinks A lot of people I knew saw Dreamcast, but wanted to wait for PS2 instead. Sega not being around for so long was a big deal. (8 minutes ago)

    Tinks It was partially, PS2 was all hype pre-launch. But similar to Nintendo, their 3rd party support was terrible (10 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker It's a damn shame the DC died like that. A few friends of mine will always blame Sony with the PS2 for that, but I disagree with that. (59 minutes ago)
