Critic Reviews for The Low Road

The Low Road isn't a bad game -- it's perfectly competent and serviceable in basically every way. It just doesn't take its great setup to anything more than a perfectly competent and serviceable game, which results in more of a big letdown than an objectively bad game.

Despite an extremely promising opening, The Low Road fails to capitalize on its own interesting premise. Every part of its presentation, from art to music to voice acting, is fantastic, but the puzzles that make up the game fall flat. Though I was happy to spend time with The Low Road's characters, the game around them doesn't hold up.

The Low Road is one of the better point ‘n' click throwbacks I've played in a while. Sure, the game has a few rough edges, but its unique world, likable characters, engaging story, and varied puzzles ought to get fans of retro adventure games properly revved up

The Low Road follows the footsteps of classic point and click adventures from two decades ago and does it with a marvelous looking art style and with a very good sound environment. Where The Low Road ends up falling short of expectations is when it comes to some aspects of its gameplay, which feels too cumbersome at times and overall, too limited to a textbook definition of point and click that was not brought into the contemporary age.

The Low Road seems like it would have been a better short animated film than a video game.

The Low Road is a fun, albeit brief point-and-click spy adventure. My playthrough was complete in two sittings over the span of a few hours and left me wanting more. If you're looking for a good title from the genre, I can definitely recommend it, just be prepared to have that same yearning for a sequel that focuses more on interactions with characters and less on the environment.

The Low Road is an incredibly standard point-and-click adventure that only manages to stand out thanks to some interesting visuals and its variety of splash screen style puzzles. The automobile corporate espionage plot begins with promise, but unfolds into an incoherent farce that fails to keep any emotional investment. Unappealing character designs and laughable animation give a very amateurish and childish impression, clashing with a mature plot. The Low Road would have made for a more interesting movie than a videogame.
