The Assembly is a decent attempt at crafting a world that should make players think about their actions. Just as I was thoroughly enjoying the narrative, however, and the secrets within the organization, the game comes to a close. The moral gray areas ensure that good vs. evil isn’t clearly defined and since there are multiple endings, you'll want to play through it more than once. The game’s length will vary depending on the player’s level of exploration, as I spent roughly four to five hours on my first time through the game..
The Assembly is an ugly, jagged mess that is just plain dull with lengthy load times and nauseating gameplay
Back To The Lab!
I’ve had a great story experience with The Assembly. It’s got a wonderful central premise that it explores beautifully, with a world that is full of integrity and intrigue. The sections revolving around Dr Stone are the more successful of the two, with brilliant puzzles and superb conundrums. The game finishes way too early, just as it feels like it’s really starting to find its feet, but maybe that’s okay when you take in the price.
The Assembly is a great experience exploring some intriguing concepts by having you personally make decisions along the way.
The main point that The Assembly let’s itself down is that it is really short. A game costing as much as it does should have extended the playtime by a few more hours. It took me just over 3 hours to finish and that was with me taking my time to explore every nook and cranny of the game. When it was over I didn’t expect it would be over that quickly. I didn’t want it to be over.
