To The Moon

DarkStation
23 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Unlike with its game-play, To The Moon’s willingness and ability to bank on the power of revelation through constant comparison never dried up. All the way to the final, near tear wrenching moments of the game I found myself regularly caught defenseless by what the narrative was offering. The tale of Johnny and River’s life together was, on its own, a rich and organic feeling undertaking.

Review: To the Moon

  • Conclusion: Final Verdict : The general lack of player interaction is a bit of a problem, but To the Moon is still a terrific experience despite that. Top notch writing delivers an excellent story and unique premise that unfolds into an arc that manages to be uplifting and devastating, often at the same time. If you’re the kind of person who really appreciates a good narrative, you’ll be hooked.

To the Moon

ActionTrip

  • Conclusion: A good work of art is utterly convincing in what it sets out to accomplish. To the Moon is a formulaic tale told in the wrong medium. It's far too uneven to be taken seriously by anyone who isn't enthusiastically ignoring its flaws. I'm sorry to say this was the most tedious time I ever had with a game. And as I've tried to explain at the beginning of this review, the whole experience doesn't really feel like a video game at all.
  • Pros: Several sensitive and humane moments;
  • Cons: Bad gameplay (if you can call it 'gameplay' at all), bad humor, occasionally bland graphics, inconsistent writing that gets too sentimental.

To the Moon Review

GamerNode
19 January 2012
  • Excerpt: *Warning: This review contains spoilers* Can one aspect of a game carry the entire experience? Can accepted design principles be eschewed in an effort to expand on that one aspect? These are the kinds of key questions to consider when playing at To the Moon with a critical eye. The answers may vary depending on each individual, but my personal experience with this game leads me to say “yes” without hesitation.
  • Pros: Emotionally resonating story, Dynamic characters with plenty of depth
  • Cons: Plays like a much too simple adventure game

  • Conclusion: At some point through their childhood, most boys want to become an astronaut. Fueled by images of Star WarsStar Trek and countless other sci-fi shows and movies, the dream of venturing into outer space and visiting different planets is intoxicating, and it is this intoxication that drives the narrative of To The Moon.

  • Excerpt: The interactive elements of To the Moon exist solely in service of pushing you through its story, but it's a story very much worth pushing through.

To the Moon Review (Windows PC)

  • Summary: It takes one hell of a game to take my mind off of Skyrim so effectively. The story of To the Moon will ensure it a place among my all time favorites for years to come. I am defiantly looking forward to the sequel.
