A slick, atmospheric sci-fi title that captures the imagination; that's The Fall.

We’re not all about examining the highest-profile reviews at the biggest sites. When we started VGRHQ, we wanted to reward any and all hard-working critics who put a huge amount of effort into analyzing video games, regardless of genre or platform.

As such, we’ve recently come across a review for the indie title, The Fall. A blend of puzzle, action and adventure elements, the first title – Kickstarted last October – from new Canadian studio Over the Moon, is meeting with critical acclaim. There are only a few reviews out there right now, but one of the first is well worth reading.

It’s at Hooked Gamers, where critic Murray Lewis pens an excellent analysis of a game that demands a subtle approach. Of course, a polished, accurate review can’t very well adopt a minimalist scheme, but Lewis still embraces the tone and style of the game in question.

A unique sci-fi adventure, one review explains the pluses and negatives in a very professional way.

Why We Like It:

A solid examination of the atmosphere and setting. Any game that relies heavily on these traits needs a critic willing to delve into a more artistic evaluation.

— The critic appropriately balances technical elements with gameplay analysis. The game in question really has to resonate, and it does so with a quality technical presentation and an original, crafty gameplay system.

— This review, above all else, has the right vibe and pacing. This isn’t as easy to do as it sounds, trust us.

Congrats, Murray!

Okay, now I have to try this. 🙂

Have it, played it, love it. 🙂

This is easily one of the better games available right now. I just wish more critics had reviewed it, because it needs to get more attention.
