Critic Reviews for Sail Forth

Sail Forth isn't without a few issues, but exploring the seas and upgrading your ship is satisfying from start to finish.

Now and again you will want a game that while not being 'flashy' is warm, unique and entertaining. Sail Forth is all of these and will keep you interested for hours. There's boat-loads to do with its many activities and wacky characters. The navigation is rewarding, the combat never gets old and everything looks so wholesome.

Sail Forth isn't the best open-world game for the Switch, but it takes the procedurally generated formula presented in No Man's Sky and gives it a much more approachable (and nautical) feel. The visuals are relaxing and effective, and almost every character has a lot of charm in the way they're presented. Sailing is surprisingly fun despite some distracting bugs, and the fleet-building mechanics have just enough depth without feeling overwhelming. A good way to unwind if you're happy to go with the wind.

Sail Forth is full of naval fun, letting you traipse around the high seas, with plenty of distractions and activities to keep you busy, as well as enemies to fight and a top notch sailing system.

Sail Forth manages to be interesting for fans of slow adventures and who like to wander between one objective and another. Its colorful visual style and calm soundtrack make everything more relaxing, but that doesn't exempt it from its minor flaws either. Moreover, it is indicated for pirates who are retiring and no longer want to brave rough seas.

Even with a repetitive progression, Sail Forth is a good choice for anyone who enjoys exploration games. This occurs insofar as navigating the Deep Blue is an extremely relaxing task, yielding incredible moments in the face of new ambiences and unique characters. By the way, feats that are amplified in the face of the grandeur of the seas of adventure and the grace of the wind that hits the face of the brave Captain Tuto.

Sail Forth gives you exactly what it promises from its title and more, truly immersing you in a swashbuckling, sea-exploring adventure you won’t soon forget. There truly is nothing quite like it on the market, easily challenging many other sailing and pirate games with its unique mechanics, fleet progression and memorable writing.
