Top Critic Average
Lightbearer brings a lot of new ideas to the table and manages to provide a highly humorous and entertaining experience. It was a risk to deviate so far from the original game but it has been executed so well that your laughter will make you love Nick Lightbearer so much that you won’t want it to end. The groovy style & setting combined with all the drug taking will give you a true rollercoaster experience with lots of weird stuff and lots of laughs. DLC often gives us more of the same. With Lightbearer you will get something completely now and highly entertaining.
Waking up with a hangover is one thing... waking up with a hangover and a lifeless body beside you is quite another! Are you the killer? What happened, will you be able to find the answers in time?
Despite its flaws, Lightbearer is praiseworthy for what it brings to the table. It’s a wonderful halfway point between full-on walking sims like Gone Home and murderous first-person shooters.
Like the rest of We Happy Few, Lightbearer is a bit rough around the edges. It also sometimes feels like there are too many loading screens. Once its story has got its hooks in you, however, you’ll want to keep playing until you find out if Nick Lightbearer is a cold-blooded killer or not.
