FAR: Lone Sails Reviews
A mournful yet bright and enormously warm-hearted adventure with a novel landship mechanic, sublime backdrops and a brilliant score.
Far: Lone Sails is a gorgeous little game with an incredible soundtrack and a journey packed full of both stressful and serene moments alike.
Far: Lone Sails tells a compelling text-free story in an engaging world, and the connection you build with your vehicle over the course of the journey is a compelling one
A meditative, breezy puzzle adventure game that's light on challenge, but likely to stick with you after you finish it.
FAR: Lone Sails has a very interesting proposition. An adventure that mixes puzzles with plattforming, but focuses on a well elaborated narrative with a clear message. A game that clearly deserves our attention.

An interesting proposal that pays attention to your feeling more than to graphics or sound to tell us a moving story about loneliness.

Games that give us spaces to become familiar with have a special place in my heart and Far: Lone Sails has earned its place there. A game that offers us both a memorable journey and a place to call home. Of course, how much meaning can one have without the other? Far: Lone Sails gave me a wistful sense of both that I won't soon forget.
FAR: Lone Sails is one of the finest indie adventure games in history.
I dare to say there are very few titles that can recreate the flow of problem-solving and artistry present in this experience. Fewer still could trigger my emotional investment.
FAR: Lone Sails is a lovely title. Remarkable environments and a strong art direction anchor a brief but compelling title. While the puzzles and amount of resources never really hit a point to make anything truly challenging, the resource management loop is more satisfying here than it usually is in more survival-focused titles.
FAR: Lone Sails is a remarkable game that attempts to convey a message through its presentation and gameplay, without using any words, and totally succeeds in doing so. The experience may be on the short side, but if you're looking for something truly artistic and beyond much that has been done so far, look no further.
The game takes so much more than it gives, forgetting that a journey isn't simply about the means of travel.
Though there are times when Lone must dash frantically about the vehicle to keep things chugging along, "FAR: Lone Sails" leaves a lasting impression of tranquility.
FAR: Lone Sails has quite a few awards and it is easy to see why during gameplay.
Ultimately, FAR: Lone Sails is a game for folks who want to occasionally step back and enjoy the world it exists in as opposed to taming it. In that sense, it's more experiential than mechanical in the traditional gameplay sense, which is a bit ironic given its heavy use of machinery. Folks who want fast-paced action and a lengthy adventure will be better served looking elsewhere. If you're the type who enjoys atmosphere and also have an affinity for machines like the Vic Viper or mobile suits, though, FAR's okomotive just might steal your heart.
Without saying a word, FAR: Lone Sails conveys a poignant tale of hope and perseverance, masterfully balancing style with substance for an experience that feels every bit as sublime as it looks. Sure, you could grumble about the shortness of the experience, the occasionally obtuse puzzles and the very, very minor control issues, but these problems dissolve away once you're invested in the journey. We highly recommend that you give this a spin.
The console port of Okomotive's debut is contemplative, lovely, and over too soon.
FAR: Lone Sails is a miniature masterpiece, no less great for its compact simplicity. A must-play for anyone interested in post-apocalyptic scenarios, atmosphere-heavy games, and low-key environmental narrative.
FAR: Lone Sails is a "Limbo-like" game that forces you to manage and drive an odd veicole through a wasteland, telling a story of despair, solitude and broken hopes.

FAR: Lone Sails is a game that makes you think 'not bad at all' from the beginning until the end. There are no tiresome game mechanics, but there are no unforgettable moments either.
