What Gamespot Users have to say about To the Moon

  • Review Score:9.5

    One of the most touching stories ever.

    Feeling, is something games nowadays lack. In the last decade or so, I haven't really felt moved by a game's story or music. To the moon, is the game that does that. Sure, there is virtually no gameplay, but the plot ... Read Full Review

    good

    To the Moon is a game that attempts to merge story-telling and game-play. Often one gets the impression that the developer included only as much game-play as could be included without holding back the story in some way. ... Read Full Review

    Few games have as much heart and soul as To the Moon.

    What would your dying wish be: To meet a famous person? To travel to an exotic location? To visit the wonders of the world? This is the premise that sets the stage for To the Moon, a humble adventure game set in a prepos... Read Full Review

    You've probably never played anything like this before and you'll wish there was more of this out there.

    I checked out this game because of gamespots review and I'm very glad I did. It's more along the lines an interactive 'retro graphics' movie rather than a game, but don't let that put you off. The story and execution ... Read Full Review

    An enjoyable game. Excellent story, fantastic music.

    A real masterpiece. Maybe you'll find it an easy game but that's not a problem. You spend about 4 hours and 30 minutes in a game with a beautiful story and dialogues filled with smart humour. The music of this game is tr... Read Full Review

    An interactive movie.

    This game isn't about gameplay, so for players that just want just to shoot people, maybe its not for them. This game has one of the best stories I have ever seen, its innovative and fresh, uses humour in a very smart wa... Read Full Review

    It's a beautiful story told with the sparing use of effective tools. But it's not much of a video game.

    *Spoilers* It's the Hironobu Sakaguchi - Final Fantasy IV-IX methodology of storytelling, using music, text dialogue boxes, and pixellated sprites. It uses a great premise, one based on the idea of memory. It paints a lo... Read Full Review

    An extraordinary piece of story telling.

    This game is all about it's story. At first it's simplistic gameplay and basic graphics left me wondering if that was all there was - but the story gradually draws you in and envelops you. It's not the most original plot... Read Full Review

    Expect a great story with an interesting interactivity.

    At first, I thought this game was just "another game". But I was curious enough about the idea of getting inside memories and alter them to actually try it. They offer a demo version at their site where you can play for ... Read Full Review
