Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Yonder's gorgeous world provides plenty of activities while avoiding combat. It's an approach that's not for everyone, but those that do like it can't recommend it enough.

Lacking Scope

Beautiful World

Engaging Exploration

An open world adventure that does away with combat, Yonder's beauty is ultimately undone by its mundanity.

It has admirable intentions, but this misguided role-player proves a quiet life is rarely an entertaining one when it comes to video games.

In the end, Yonder isn't inventive, exactly, as the multitude of ideas and cross-media inspirations converge somehow into something infinitely familiar. Missions are cut down to absolute basics to fulfill an open world quota, but it's possible to forgive this when traipsing through this aesthetically pleasing land and helping these delighted folk. And as importantly, there's bravery in eliminating things like combat and leveling, allowing Yonder a rare, distinctive brevity.

A meditative game about exploring and gathering that offers great beauty but not much else.

Sometimes, you really do just need a laid-back game that drops any semblance of agency or emergency and instead allows you to simply explore everything that it has to offer at your own leisure — something that you can easily unwind with, or a title that's just relaxing and inviting. Yonder fulfills this purpose wonderfully, and I can see myself revisiting it time and time again just so I can get lost in its world once more.

Yonder lacks combats, but that it's not a problem when you have a world as beatifully crafted as this is. Match it with addictive (although simple) crafting mechanics, and you have a unique adventure, where joy is found behind every new landscape.

Prideful Sloth has created a well balanced game with a great artistic style and an amazing OST. Great game for the players that enjoy exploration and adventure.

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is that it is a beautiful canvas that needs more detail to make it a masterpiece. Gemea is an enchanting location and the majority of systems in the game function well, but the magic hook is missing. The story isn't engrossing and the quests just blend into each other for the most part, as do the characters that give them. Gemea is magical, the content not so much.
