Volume may suffer from a few issues of poorly designed AI and easily exploited level design, but I still found a great number of challenging rooms with an intriguing story to match, and plenty of room to master. The added bonus of being able to show how to complete a room by livestreaming a game about streaming how to complete a room… is just icing on the meta cake.

An expertly crafted game that boasts stylish, nigh-endless permutations of a simple, engrossing form of stealth.

An enjoyable homage to old school Metal Gear Solid, but a lack of challenge and an overbearing story means it isn't quite a stealth classic in its own right.

Volume's tight mechanics, smart visual vocabulary, and level-editing tools combine to create something that is as much a puzzle game as it is a stealth title.

An inventive stealth game that strips the genre down to its basics.

Volume is not a bad game. But it still leaves me wanting for something more out of it.
