Even stranger than its premise and scarier than it looks, The Station is a short ride to a great ending.
Walking simulators are often defined by their stories. The Station never truly delivers on its premise or setup
If you're a fan of exploration titles then you should enjoy this. While The Station doesn't reach the heights of some other titles in the genre, it is a good attempt and tells a slightly different story. Hopefully the audio and visual bugs can be ironed out, but The Station is an intriguing little mystery that has you guessing what happened to the crew on board right until the very end.
It may not be a great game, but the puzzles are impressive. It's just shame it has such a rushed ending that never rewards you for following the plot.
The Station is futuristic sci-fi puzzling delivered with polish, but the trouble is that what you receive doesn't feel very new.
The Station for Xbox One is a narrative driven sci-fi game that introduces some interesting story themes, but feels way too short and will leave most players wanting more.
The Station is a decent outing that falls short in some key areas. I wanted more back story, more intrigue, and more interesting puzzles. Still, I had fun with the short romp and the ending, while predictable, is still fun. I would love to see this team craft a bigger sequel with a proper budget.
It doesn't show or say anything that other science fiction tales haven't shown or told already, but if you're relatively new to the genre or don't mind rehashing previous themes, The Station is worth its short stay.
A promising premise and some well-executed puzzles aren't enough to save The Station from the dull nature of its story and characters.
The Station fails to captivate despite its interesting ideas and puzzles. The setting is nice, but the script and narrative couldn't quite deliver on the core concept.
