Even though the game basically pulls you from one remarkable situation to the next, that is kind of the point, and I really enjoyed my time with Maize. It has that self-aware LucasArts ridiculousness that is wonderfully endearing, and seeing as we’re currently lacking in adventure games, Maize is a welcome breath of fresh air.

Don't look for any challenge here, it's not that type of adventure game. It's a couple hours long experience with bizarre and silly, but great Tim Schafer-like humor.

Maize is a first person adventure, full of humor and nonsense, with talking corn and Russian Teddy Bear. However, the puzzles are very easy to solve and the journey is short and linear.

I mean, once you spoof the recognition software for a door using a coat rack, a jumpsuit, a sweaty headband, and an Etch-a-Sketch depiction Bob’s face, you can start to appreciate the game for what it is: honest, silly storytelling

Its oddball humor won’t work for everyone and its technical issues still need to be ironed out, but as a first-person adventure, it hits a lot of the right buttons.

I have to say I really didn't know what to expect from this game when I first came into it, but I ended up enjoying it massively. Once you get into the swing of it and just accept Maize for the odd little story that it is, you'll find yourself being happy for spending the time in it that you did. The characters throughout are all wonderful in their own special little ways (even the ones you don't actually meet), the story is great at keeping you guessing right until the last moment and the whole thing has been very well put together.

While the ideas presented here were creative, the presentation was corny and the execution left grit in my teeth...

Despite a good sense of humour, Maize failed to convince either as a walking simulator and a graphic adventure. Its progression is based on a linear and recurring process which require to find new objects to solve basic puzzles that feel too much similar to each other.

Maize is a pretty rare kind of game. It is very unlikely it will reach cult status the way Deadly Premonition has, but this really is every bit as good and original.

Maize is certainly a weird first-person exploration game – a walking simulator is what some would call it – but a fun one with a dry sense of humor and visuals that get the job done (if you play on a PS4 Pro you'll notice some extra bells and whistles here and there. What really shines during your playthrough is the great voice acting in the game which elevates the overall experience. If you're looking for a walking simulator with a bizarre premise, then you should give Maize a try.
