The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition
Family Friendly Gaming requested a physical copy of The Talos
Principle Deluxe Edition for this review. The correct mailing address
was even provided. A code was provided instead. The Talos Principle
Deluxe Edition is close to five gigs in size. THAT IS CRAZY HUGE! Now
Family Friendly Gaming has to be extra careful to not incur any Internet
usage fines because of how large this download was.
The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition is a first person puzzle video game. Kind of like the Portal games without the portals. Players must solve puzzles while playing in the first person perspective. There is also a creepy voice that gives us cryptic commands. The strangest part about The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition is playing on a computer. The text based games are like choose your own adventure with a variety of choices.
There are over a hundred puzzles in this realistic looking world. The ancient ruins have high tech defenses. Never go into the water in The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition. It will rewind you back to your last little safe spot. The robot character we are playing never needs a bath in The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition. I wonder how he ever gets clean in these ancient ruins since they are so dirty.
There are no hints in The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition. If you get stuck it is up to you to try and figure out what to do. The good news is there are only so many things the player can interact with. At least at first. Later on The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition gets more complex. At times you just need to listen to the voice explaining things for the way to open up. Once he is done talking then the way will open up.
The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition can make gamers thinks about a variety of topics. The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition is also an acquired taste in terms of story and game play. The bad news for this puzzle video game is it is not to my personal tastes. I can see how some gamers will get into The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition though. It is a different kind of an experience. If first person perspective games give you a headache or seizures then you should steer clear of The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition.
