Critic Reviews for Windscape

Windscape isn't an antidote to the everlong tropes of modern action-RPGs – simply because it still needs to rely on enough of them to tie its own systems together – but it does present a relaxed and engrossing alternative that's designed to give players of any age or skill level the chance to explore, battle and craft at their own pace. The deepness of that crafting system belies its apparent simplicity, and with all manner of stories to uncover across its hand-crafted lands, you're left with a first-person adventure that very much belongs on Switch.

Windscape may look like a decent lo-fi adventure at first, but it doesn't have much to offer beyond its initial cartoony charm. With sleep-inducing combat and an absolutely skeletal crafting system, it just does nothing to keep your attention.

Windscape is a delightful and charming experience. It’s like playing an Elder Scrolls game that is designed to be friendly and fun, however, for everything I found about it to be enjoyable there was something else slightly off-putting that made me think it could use just a little more time in development.

Windscape has its rough edges, but the scope, ambition and heart of this one-man passion project help it to punch above its weight class. If you want a Zelda or Skyrim-style game that's great for relaxing after a long day, Windscape fits the bill nicely.

Windscape is a fun little throwback, but it often relies too heavily on nostalgia instead of carving its own path.

Windscape is a melding of old action/adventure gaming with new mechanics and storytelling in mind, allowing the player to explore the nearly open-world around them at their own pace.

Windscape is not a bad game, in fact there were times, mainly when I was chilling listening to the music and crafting, I really enjoyed it. I just wished the quests were more varied and had a bit more life to them.

Considering Windscape is largely the product of one developer, it is actually quite an accomplishment. It ambitiously attempts to marry aspects of two of the mediums most influential action-adventure franchises and, for the most part, is able to create a very enjoyable experience.
