Overall, The Touryst on Xbox Series X is a fun and engaging game that makes use of the next-generation console’s power by super-sampling for a super clear image and near instantaneous load times.

The Touryst feels like a tiny game at first - but it reveals a lot of depth and freedom in the end. Especially fascinating is the super smooth gameplay and performance. The only thing I was missing in the end was a kind of bigger narrative to support the overall atmosphere.

The Touryst is what I have always wanted from an indie game; everything just meshes together so well to make the players feel like they're on vacation, giving a feeling I've never felt from games before, and for that, I highly recommend The Touryst to players looking for a fun summer getaway without even having to leave the couch!

Is there a better way to start a New year than taking a holiday on a tropical island? The Touryst is all about going on a relaxing holiday.

All in all, The Touryst is a fun little game, with a lot going for it. If you have the spare money to pick this up, and want something quick and fun to get through the weekend, I would recommend the game, just don’t expect too a large game, and some areas may be frustrating. You will get a few laughs and a gorgeous looking game out of it.
