Re:Turn - One Way Trip
Top Critic Average
Silent Hill by way of Japanese horror, Re:Turn makes a more than decent attempt at inciting fear in the player. It might be handled in a way that comes across a little hammy at times, but the fantastic atmosphere incited by the visual and sound design more than make up for this. Sprinkle in some excellent puzzles and an engrossing story and you've got one hell of a reason to turn up those headphones and turn down those lights.
Re:Turn - One Way Trip is enjoyable most of the time. It has a strong presentation and enjoyable puzzles, even if the game world's a bit too small for its own good and there are a few issues here and there.
Re:Turn – One Way Trip isn't a terribly long or frightening excursion, but those seeking a good puzzle adventure with an emotionally-rich story and a take-charge female protagonist will be happy they bought the ticket.
This is a fun little game for fans of horror, puzzle, or visual novels. It takes the best parts of these genres and makes them into a smooth experience, filled with creepy music, lovely pixel art, and engaging puzzles.
If I had to give this a score, this would be it. What I was able to play of Re:Turn - One Way Trip was enjoyable. While I never was really afraid or scared, there was a small uneasiness when I thought more on events. It shows a lot of potential and everything works well together to make a nice impression. Just in time for spook season.
Ghostly train with puzzle and five college friends can be scary and it is partially adequate.

It would be a nice game if it could keep its initial atmosphere and tell its story in a tidy way, but fails to do so.

The occasional tedious puzzle and slow movement speed are frustrating at times but never really felt like they fully broke the experience for me. It's not perfect nor is it what I would call great, but the things it excels at lift it slightly higher than your average 2D horror game. Just not much higher.
Re:Turn – One Way Trip is filled with unexpected twists and turns, satisfying jumpscares, an eerie atmosphere and a well-written story. There are some moments of awkward dialogue, but it does very little to take away from the story. Discovering what happened to the old passengers of the train and how their experiences effect the characters is good fun. It’s also terrifying, and the perfect title to pick up this Halloween. Heck, it’s perfect for any time really. Just be sure to play with headphones on and the lights off to get the full effect of the scares.
When it comes to 2D horror games, ReTurn - One Way Trip is a prime example of the genre with a captivating cast and thrilling story.
