Even if games so relaxed aren't your normal forte, I would recommend checking out Solo. Everyone has rough patches in their lives and it can be cathartic to explore our thoughts in a more interactive manner. Not every aspect of the game is perfect, but that beautifully mirrors how complex love can be.

Solo is a unique piece that focuses on the player rather than being a game. It forgets about gamplay and searches deep within the player to know his/her memories. Even though it is not a perfect game, this a journey that nobody should miss.

Solo is an introspective journey that will make you think of your love relationships while you move boxes over and over again along colorful islands. This game is beautiful, mature and with an important message, but it is also easy and less surprising.

Solo is the rare game that is an actual experience, one capable of eliciting a complex emotional response.

While many will look at Solo and see a gorgeous art style, those who play it will experience an introspective journey about love. Its delivery of core themes can be a little vague at times, but Solo is one of the most charming titles I've played in a long time.

Perhaps it's not the most exciting or enjoyable of games, but I'm sure Solo will find a core audience which will appreciate it for what it does best.

Solo should have been two separate games really, one a standard cutesy platformer that you can throw on PSN and let people who enjoy puzzle platformers if that’s their bag and the other should have been a more meaningful journey where you do find out stuff about your past or present love or even if you’re suffering heartbreak. Being asked a question about sex and having such a personal question add nothing to the game is a bit of a bitter pill to swallow.

It’s hard to give a game like Solo a definitive score; sure, I can critique things like the presentation (which is masterful) and the gameplay (which is pretty good but I wouldn’t say masterful), but what you actually get out of the game is entirely up to you. How willing are you to be honest with yourself about your feelings?

Although it may not be the game for everyone, Solo manages to tell a captivating story while also having some excellent puzzle design. However, there are some technical issues, mainly with the camera.

Solo is a blissful and beautiful journey into your own heart. You may spend minutes upon minutes enjoying the crashing waves in the background as you swing over a stunning cliffside; contemplating the latest question asked of you, before moving onto the next puzzle and that’s the best way to play Solo -- slowly, relaxed and willing to give in to its theme.
