After playing the game about 10 hours now I can say it is beautiful. Just to be clear, the game is not the easiest one but as more runs as I play, the more I'm getting better and eventually I will reach the ultimate goal and get back to Earth in one piece, hopefully ;-). The game mechanic that every decision I make could lead to my death in minutes or not is thrilling. Every run feels unique, tons of things could happen, do happen or even don't happen at all. Most of all I like that the star names are actually taken from existing star databases and even the gravity feels real and that gives an additional touch of reality to it. Reaching a stable planetary orbit or land on the surface is often not the easiest task, but after you got it done it will give you a feeling of pure satisfaction. The soundtrack is great too. In my opinion, The Long Journey Home is a must have. Not always it needs AAA games to give you a great journey through emotions of thrill, sorrow, rage and relief. My thanks to the developer.
In this game we can practically explore the galaxy that gives us the game, we have a fault in the ship that makes us change course to an unknown destination The game graphically looks good, the scan is excellent but one of the things that does not draw much attention is the mobility mechanics that the ship has with the mouse when it is in space but the rest is a good game or at least Deserve to have a look
The Long Journey Home is undoubtedly a difficult game in which every unthinkable step can end with the death of a crew and complete defeat. The randomness of the universe encourages return and guarantees a certain variety. The graphic design and soundtrack are the strong part of The Long Journey Home. Unfortunately, the game also suffers from the biggest flaw of modern sandboxes and roguelike games, the gameplay is repetitive monotonous so it may bore you after a while. Worth checking out when the game hits the sale.
The idea for this game sound good - space sim with great graphics and stellar sound, huge, randomly generated world, sounds familiar. Problem is, it has pretty much the same problems as No Man Sky. Story is pretty non-existent, which in my opinion is not that much of an issue, since in games like this I don't care much, and it got proven many times with games like Binding of Isaac or Spelunky that you don't need a story to enjoy a game. Problem is, the gameplay is incredibly simplistic, to the point you can see everything it can offer in one round (5-8 hours) and it gets extremely repetitive fast. Gravity is also pretty nice idea, problem is it will more often than not kill you. What it does better than No Man Sky is that the planets actually feel distinct from one another and there is day and night cycle. What drags this game down is that there is not much point to it, since you don't get any reward for your efferot, mini-games get annoying and boring fast, it feels like devs had no idea how to make it fun. Also, the game is incredibly hard and puts Dark Souls 2 cheapest bosses to shame. Overall, great idea, but poor execution. There is a potential for a great game, but gameplay would have to get major overhaul. For this price, it is hard to recommend, because while there is some fun to be had, it is not worth this price, which is close to AAA. Grab it when on sale, you might have some fun with it and maybe some of the issues will be fixed.
