What is The Way about?
The Way is a 2D puzzle platformer game inspired by classic titles like Another World, Heart of Darkness and Flashback.
It tells a story about a member of space explorers team, who lost his beloved one and cannot accept her death. Finding ancient writings on eternal existence during one of his last expeditions makes him come back there in search of the meaning of life itself.
He will soon know that the planet has its own secrets and problems that he will need to face in order to get what he is looking for.
A very successful surprise hit from Nintendo! Unfortunately, the price discourages many, but it is entirely justified by very elaborate cutscenes, excellent graphic presentation, a complex and later very demanding game principle, quite funny story and unique musical background. The only thing I would have wished for was a Japanese voice output, but the English one is also good. Before you buy, be sure to try the demo in the Nintendo eShop!
