Beyond a Steel Sky
Top Critic Average
Handsome visuals can't quite make up for bugs and a lack of urgency.
Filled with what made the original game great, this second trip to Union City has been worth the 26-year hiatus.
A long-awaited sequel to a 1994 classic that can't hold up against its predecessor.
Beyond A Steel Sky has an enjoyable tale to tell that compliments the original game, building a newer, more modern dystopia atop the foundations of the Union City of old. It's just a shame that it's so rough around the edges.
A good adventure game that faithfully recaptures the spirit of its predecessor while also welcoming new players with a few accessibility options and a storyline that can be appreciated even by those unfamiliar with Beneath a Steel Sky.

After 26 years, Beyond A Steel Sky is a strange yet welcome sequel. Not quite fresh enough to stand alone nor nostalgic enough to stir the memory, it nevertheless manages to thoroughly entertain if not thrill.
Revolution's classic 1994 point-and-click adventure Beneath A Steel Sky saw you trawling the underbelly of a dystopian sci-fi city to uncover its grand conspiracy.
Glitches aside, this sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky is another absorbing journey into Union City
Beyond a Steel Sky has some technical issues but it's excellent writing and interesting storytelling make it well worth experiencing.
Beyond a Steel Sky is a a worthy follow-up to the orginal game. Its story, characters, atmosphere and puzzles are truly enjoyable and its comic book visuals are totally fitting. It's just too bad that it doesn't feel well polished and that some people wiil, more than surely, have some headaches because it's sometimes really hard to know what's the next objective.
