Critic Reviews for The Way of Life

When it comes to art direction ad writing, Thw Way of Life is full of interesting and intriguing elements. The same is not true for gameplay, with a lot of repetitive mechanics and routines that ruin the flow of the game and sometimes break the attention of the player. Nonetheless, a bold first effort.

The Way of Life is a fascinating parade of characters and sequences, delivering an interesting insight on three different periods of life. Too bad the game is a bit weak on the narrative side, while the gameplay shows some flaws.

The Way of Life: Definitive Edition is a nice walking simulator that lets you experience a 5-hour long journey to discover the meaning of life. The first production from the Italian indie team CyberCoconut is interesting, but because of its slow pace and some unripe gameplay aspects the game soon starts to feel boring, despite a deep message that would have deserved a better exposure.

Everyone is selfish, and this is baked into the game to a certain degree—even a story in which the choices were clear and I was able to wrap things up in a less-selfish way was still plagued by flashbacks in which all of the characters acted in unreasonably selfish, egocentric ways. When I went to try and help someone, only for the game to interpret my aid attempt as an attempt to humiliate them, though, I mentally checked out of the entire experience.
