Lifeless Planet is bold and memorable and oddly sweet in the earnestness of its message and its preoccupations. It's a truly efficient payload. Fire it up and be transported.

The previews looked fantastic, but the final release of Lifeless Planet fails to build that potential into a worthy game.

Some technical limitations hold Lifeless Planet back from being a completely immersive adventure, but ultimately the experience is memorable

Lifeless Planet is an interesting mash-up of genres, blending a walking simulator and platform-puzzling with a mysterious and quite gripping premise. Its slow pace mightn't be for everyone, but if you enjoy action adventures, are partial to tricky third-person platforming, and like classic sci-fi yarns, it's worth checking out.
