Critic Reviews for STONE

Stone is fun, but flawed. The story is well crafted and reveals itself through a series of twists that keep you engaged throughout. There is no action aside from walking up to different people or items, but the game never drags. As much as I love the story here, the dialogue is strained at times and has glitches that affect the timing. Overall a worthy experience and story to enjoy.

Stone is a game that looks interesting on the surface. Sadly it falls short on delivering just about every step of the way.

Stone is a weird game by every stretch of the imagination. What’s present isn’t bad — it just could have been a lot better.

STONE is an amorphous title, an elliptical point-to-point simulator, the level zero of interactivity.

All of Stone's systems work to create a quirky little game with a bunch of things going for it and almost as many things that can detract from it.

Overall, I was able to beat this game in less than two hours. There is very little in the way of a story except for being a lonely Koala Bear looking for his mate. He is depressed most of the game and nothing good happens. I don't feel any personal connection with the characters, and pretty much beat the game just to see what happened.

STONE's writing can swerve between fantastic and terrible at the drop of a hat. Considering this is the most important part of the game, it's a shame it couldn't be more consistent in its quality.

STONE, like its protagonist, is bloody rough. Channelling the tough on the outside, soft on the inside of its literary inspirations—Post Office, for example—STONE's buggy visuals and lack of polish almost exist as a statement in themselves. By presenting a story about an unkempt rebel's life, the choppy visuals benefit the game. Overall, the experience's worth will be strongly dependent on the player. Similarly to most great arthouse experiences, sometimes viewers must ignore the dodgy presentation and appreciate the heart of the piece. STONE, and its protagonist, have a lot of heart, and that shines the most.
