JETT: The Far Shore
Top Critic Average
Jett: The Far Shore has an interesting and deep world, but it takes far too long to actually get around to telling you about it. It’s also sadly just boring to play thanks to the glacial pacing, which leaves your enjoyment purely hinging on your engagement with the characters and story. If you’ve got the patience to enjoy Jett’s deliberately slow approach, you’ll certainly find an interesting world to learn about and explore, filled with unique alien lifeforms.
A sci-fi odyssey of great vision and promise that proves to be its own worst enemy.
Jett: Far From Shore has some epic highs but fiddly ship controls and unanswered questions weigh this space adventure down.
Jett: The Far Shore is a frustrating jaunt through space, with a stunning world and narrative let down by clunky, awkward controls.
There are highlights in this game's visuals and storytelling, though these get bogged down by basic mechanics and uninteresting moment-to-moment gameplay
Jett: The Far Shore is a simple game, but a beautiful one, and well worth your time. It can make space a little bit scary, without going over the top, and it strikes a great balance between saccharine and grimdark. The Far Shore is a journey I was glad to take, even when the company got a little too chatty.
Jett: The Far Shore is thrilling when you're flying through the air, but boring puzzles and an unsatisfying conclusion keeps it from soaring.
JETT - The Far Shore is an adventure that, at its best, conveys a sense of absolute freedom to the player in the exploration of an alien planet. The setting is full of ideas ... and it is a pity that many of these are not fully developed during the story. From a stylistic point of view, the contrast between the minimal graphic style and the orchestral soundtrack is excellent and gives a unique character to the work.

JETT: The Far Shore is a cathartic trip that makes you feel a part of something special in such an unknown and beautiful new world.
Jett is a game that's equal parts wonder and frustration, an evocative adventure that feels brilliant under the thumbs, but one whose creative systems feel stifled by rigid story-telling.
