Golem is a magic adventure which excels by reminding us that games can be art. A great sense of companionship between protagonists, intelligent and difficult puzzles, an astonishing art design, a beautiful soundtrack and a great communion of these aspects makes the creation of Longbow Games rise as one of the most special indies of the year.

Golem is a very interesting indie game, with its original mix of adventure, puzzle and platform elements. Controls can still be improved, but it's fun and well done even in its current state.

When it comes to both its cinematic and gameplay elements, Golem manages to remain an enjoyable and engaging tale throughout.

Golem's crunchy combat, strong narrative, and enticing score are some of the best PS VR has to offer, but nausea risks compromising the full package.

Golem's gorgeous presentation is undercut by poorly designed puzzles and frustrating navigation.

Far from attempting to elicit mass market appeal, the game targets a niche and shows itself to be a project from a developer stretching beyond what it knows best. Longbow Games's heritage in RTS titles emerges in the point-and-click gameplay, yet, in most other respects, Golem is a departure. While the team's attempt to create something complex and novel is admirable, its ambition occasionally outstrips its execution. Meanwhile, although the game's reliance on colonialist tropes is slightly troublesome, it will be overlooked by most players who have much else to occupy their minds across this evocating, engaging, and challenging adventure.

Golem does some things very well, but its gameplay is so poor that it makes it impossible to recommend to PlayStation VR owners.
