Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.
The subject of this installment: STRAFE, developed by Pixel Titans and published by Devolver Digital.
HIGH It didn't take long.
LOW A puzzle was so badly bugged that I had to restart a whole level in order to deal with it.
WTF Seriously, how does that even happen in a game this short and this thin?
