5.5 / 10.0
Ryan McCaffrey

I badly wanted Beyond Eyes to use its attractively whitewashed look and novel, visually limited ideas to tell a much more moving story whose empathetic lessons could've stayed with me long after the end credits rolled, but it didn't. Only its ending taps into this potential, and it's a shame the rest of its short playthrough time couldn't follow suit.

Over quickly and hardly exhilarating, but illuminating in a way games rarely bother to be.

No Recommendation / Blank

This whimsical and original game mimics the disorientating effects of blindness, but fails to build meaningfully on its initial idea.

You'd be better off visiting your local art gallery than spending full price on this, so give it a pass until it eventually drops in price.
