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.

I tried so hard to like this one, because of its immediately attractive qualities, and the huge promise of that opening phone call subterfuge puzzle. But despite eventually revisiting that idea once, it never lives up to any of the early promise. Gosh though, someone ought to make that 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.
