Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition
Top Critic Average
A compelling story about rural America that is both surreal and thoughtful, if a little disorienting.
Cardboard Computer's elusive adventure game gets a final episode and a console edition, but don't wolf it all down at once.
Kentucky Route Zero is a beautiful poetry generator in the body of a point-and-click adventure game.
An arrestingly surreal triumph that blends point 'n' click and text adventures with a unique style of storytelling and gameplay that was well worth the extremely long wait.
Though it seems to be a traditional adventure game at first, this is an enticing and bizarre tale unlike anything you've played before
After seven years, Kentucky Route Zero reaches the end of the road, and the full portrait it paints is melancholy and sorrowful but also absolutely beautiful.

All considered as the sum of its many, equally magnificent parts, Kentucky Route Zero is a game I won't forget for a long, long time.
Kentucky Route Zero is a coffee table book of a game. I don’t feel like you’re really supposed to try and take it all in as a whole. Instead, KRZ, with it’s myriad of references and views, seems like it’s supposed to be taken a piece at a time. Some players are sure to absolutely love that, while others, like me, would prefer something more grounded.
Kentucky Route Zero is a game that I'm still thinking about days after reaching its conclusion. Though it's slow (maybe too slow for some) and introspective, it's also an exceptionally engaging interactive experience. If you are into the slow burn kind of story then this is definitely for you, but if you're not then you may bounce off of the Zero.
