FAR: Lone Sails Review (PC)

I was looking for a quick game this weekend, came across FAR: Lone Sails on GOG.


Some stutters, but after turning off v-sync things seemed to run smoother. Great artwork and a consistent steampunk theme. Nothing spectacular but very enjoyable and atmospheric.


There were no 'Press X to operate the vehicle' in your face tutorials, which I found very refreshing. The gameplay mechanics were built up in a gradual manner.

Gameplay consists of some very simple puzzles that are fun to solve. It contained just enough interactivity to keep me entertained for a short afternoon gaming session.


Very atmospheric soundtrack and effects. All nicely fitting with the mellow steampunk theme of the game.


If you're looking for a way to unwind and take in the scenery, without super challenging gameplay, this is the game for you. It's a mellow experience the game provides, and to get the most out of it I had to be in the right mindset on a relaxed Saturday afteroon, very similar to Journey.

9/10 (one point off for the graphical stuttering)
