The Fall (Wii U), Out Now, Looks Pretty Great

#1 Edited by charizard1605 (56875 posts) -

This game looks pretty neat, actually. It was released on PC in May, and is now out on the Wii U too. The premise is absolutely amazing, the game's atmosphere seems incredible, and the story looks to be pretty gripping. Apparently, reviewers agree on this one, too.

Hooked Gamers: 9/10

For fans of adventure games and sci-fi, you won't want to miss this one. The Fall is a great story, well told, and it's thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.

RageQuit: 9/10

An absolute must-buy for fans of Philip K. Dick and Arthur Clarke, The Fall is a prime example of a perfect storm of a game. Coming out of left field with zero hype, it banks on rock solid game mechanics and incredible art direction/voice overs, to carry a poignant story that will stay with players long after the end credits have rolled.

Hardcore Gamer: 8/10

Over the Moon have begun something very special with The Fall and you’ll be looking out for ARID again even months after you finish this intriguing opening act.

I'll keep this updated as and when more reviews come in, but so far, this game has my interest, and it has my attention.

I linked the only reviews I found on Metacritic, apparently there are not many :p As I said, I will keep on updating it with reviews as more come in (although I hardly think very many are needed, the game's trailer and premise seem to be promising enough on themselves).

Looks bad... this looks like 2D Playstation 2 game.

Again you call this "amazing" because it´s Wii U exclusive


And i just posted just 0.1% upcoming Indie games on PS4 / XBOX ONE AND PC

There is only 1 game on Wii U, 40 coming on PS4, 1000 this year on PC.

Don´t dear to say it´s amazing because you got only 1 game totally.

@FreedomFreeLife: Do you realize that you:

a) Made no sense
b) Made a mockery out of the concept of factual accuracy
c) Made a mockery out of just common sense, really

All three at once, in one post that was just about 50 words? I would say that that is a stunning, amazing accomplishment, but then again, it's you and you routinely do it, so I'm not actually sure why I'm even surprised any more.

Stop ignoring facts.

You keep saying "amazing" on all Wii U games. And now even lack of Wii U games, not even good looking 2D fall is coming on Wii U, you call this amazing.

It´s like you saying that Iron Man 2 is best movie ever because this is the only movie you ever seen. This is what you doing. You need to play other games too, not just having 1 system and calling everything amazing when it´s not.

This game came out 3 months ago on Steam. Why make a thread just for the Wii U version?

I keep saying 'amazing' on all Wii U games? You mean, like, I don't know, Pikmin 3, which I criticized? You know, a major first party Nintendo exclusive?

'Lack of good Wii U games...' I'm not even going to bother getting into list wars bullshit, but just this year, Wii U has had more good games worth playing than PS4 or Xbox One have in total so far.

'It's like you saying Iron Man 2...'

It's so cute when you assume the Wii U is all I own or play on, when I own three home consoles and two handhelds, in addition to a computer that can sometimes play games.

Seriously- next time, try to attack the point if you disagree with someone, instead of attacking said someone, or you might as well not bother posting. In System Wars. Ever.

Cool, had no idea about this game and yet here it is and it looks good, and I have a Wii U to play it on... if I didn't already have stuff to play I'd get it now. But I'm most definitely picking it up soon. I'm excited, Metroid: Zero Mission should be coming to eShop in near future, hope we get an announcement at PAX Prime. Really looking forward to Affordable Space Adventures as well, it's SUPPOSED to come out in third quarter and is still tentatively labeled as such, but if it's release is a month away and nobody has a clue about it and no official release date and price is known then I have doubts... then again, maybe they'll announce details at PAX Prime this weekend. And this, The Fall, looks great. Should hold me over until that other stuff releases.

Anyhow, like the look of this game, gameplay reminds me of Blackthorne with that push-UP cover system, dark like Out Of This World / Another World. Glad it has a good narrative element. I just hope it's a meaty downloadable title worth a few replays.

Trailer reminds me of The Swapper - in a good way. I'll check it out during the next Steam sale.

This. Played 3 month ago, not good game. Why need multiplatform game thread???

I didn't know about it when it came out on Steam. I knew about it because it was prominently plastered on the eShop, I saw the trailer, looked it up, liked what I saw, posted it here. It's pretty simple, really.

I didn't intend for the game to come off as a Wii U 'exclusive' however, since I know it's not (note how I never call it an exclusive in the OP), but you're right, I should probably mention that it's also on PC, so I'll go ahead and edit that in, that is a fair catch.

Ah yes, i'll ignore the rest of your post and thank you for reminding me of this excellent game.

Kentucky Fried Zero is one of the best indies I've played in recent memory. It is just so fucking good.

@ps4hasnogames: "it would be misleading to say that the tradition of Athenian democracy was an important part of the 18th-century revolutionaries' intellectual background. The classical example that inspired the American and French revolutionaries as well as the English radicals was Rome rather than Greece."

Yes , they are not americans nor British nor Germans nor French or Japanese. Get out of your cave , world is bigger than you think

Most likely never played the game and don't own any of the new consoles

I saw this as I waited for the mk8 update. Not sure what to make of it. I've got $13 something on eshop--think I'm going to get the mk8 dlc instead.

As for the game in question it gives off a Metroid/Out of this World vibe.

So what? So i've been following x amount of sites for years and now I HAVE to trust these random review sources i've NEVER heard from.

It doesn't have to do with where their from but just the sheer fact i've never ever ever heard from these websites.

Also the world's bigger than I think?

What do you think i'm some kind of xenophobe?

Too bad for you though... I get out of my cave ever year and explore this beautiful world....So dont act like an ass

Also PS I am greek, so please go preach somewhere else.

The Fall is already available on Steam last May. This isn't new and isn't an exclusive.

Well, a picture is worth a thousand words, and to be fair, he did post a lot of pictures.

Poor people and low IQ always says its low standards. You really need to open eyes and see reality and life.

The thing is, you seen like only 5 games ever and you call amazing everytime. This is stupid. Also this is multiplatform game and PC REVIEWS, NOT WII U.

I hate liars but most of all, people who ignore truth and facts. STOP HIDING!!!

Not going to lie, I'm intrigued. Plan to buy one for myself for Christmas if Smash comes bundled.
