  • If you feel nostalgia for classic arcade adventure games from the Nineties like Flashback and Another World, you should not miss this one. But be aware of it’s unforgiving level design.

  • The Way is a really well done, pretty and atmospheric platformer that resembles Flashback or Another World. We get some beautiful pixel art, a truly excellent soundtrack and tons of fun gameplay (exploring a mysterious planet is always fun!). The developers could have spent more time on the controls but all in all the results are pretty good. The Way is a very pleasant surprise.

  • The Way has a lot going for it: the world is interesting, the puzzles are testing, and it has a wonderful charm. The movement is precise enough to make the platforming work, and controlling the powers is never an effort. Worth a punt if you’re looking for something a little retro this summer.

  • The Way is a fun adventure, filled with difficult-but-fair puzzles and wonderful art direction, but often marred by clumsy control issues and poor checkpointing, made especially worse in a game filled with long backtracking segments.

  • The Way is almost exclusively aimed at those gamers who remembers fondly Another World and Flashback. It is almost a step-by-step recreation of those games, in terms of aesthetics and gameplay mechanics, filled with diverse environmental puzzles, lethal one-hit dangers and, of course, the obligatory kind-of-unresponsive jumping mechanics.

  • A bow to classic platformers, especially from Eric Chahi excels with excellent atmosphere, great visual style and ruthless difficulty. While the last one you can expect in similar games, in this game it’s too much – because of the problems with controls and unnecessary backtracking. However, if you are patient enough, The Way, despite for its issues, can entertain you pretty well.

  • An atmospheric and visually stunning old-style adventure... a “flashback” that will lead you to a perfectible, yet convincing “another world”.

  • It may not completely capture all of the traits of earlier side-scrolling puzzle platformers, but it's worthy of a look from genre fans.

  • The ambition and the lack of budget make this adventure worse than it could've been, but it's definitely a good game with great moments.

  • This type of game is one from a bygone era, and although The Way does its best to bring it back from the past, there are just too many problems to make it a good modern game.

  • LEVEL (Czech Republic)

    Beautiful and atmospheric sci-fi, which is afflicted by its control imperfections and especially frustrating checkpoint system and design missteps. [Issue#265]

  • Quotation forthcoming.

  • An avalanche of poorly thought-out game design decisions makes it impossible to enjoy The Way.

  • Making your torturous, long trek across planets and galaxies to discover the key to the afterlife can be fascinating. It's a psychological examination of the human spirit and mind, and what we’re truly capable of when we can’t accept our losses. You have to spend several hours solving frustrating puzzles to see it through, but The Way’s poignant story is worth the occasional struggle.
