The Invincible review
by BloodScorchedSun

This was a great narrative adventure game with a good bit of character decisions added in. I love the 1960s sci-fi aesthetic of this game as well as the various designs of the vehicles and buildings. The game is beautiful and really captures that era of sci-fi. The story is good and interesting, keeping the players interest throughout. I think the voice acting for the two primary characters are very well done and have a good, realistic relationship. The gameplay for the most part is fine, on par with what you'd expect from a FPS walking simulator type style of game. It can get a bit tedious with exploring depending on how far you need to go or if you need to backtrack. There was a few times later in the games when the vehicle disappeared and I was forced to walk instead. There were a few weird animation bugs I ran into as well as one with the vehicle where it kept playing a loud banging noise as if it was running something over. Overall I think this is a great game for any sci-fi fan and I'd love to see this team adapt another old sci-fi novel like they did with this.

[5/10] Invincible was a pretty big disappointment for me. It's possible that this type of game is simply not for me. Although I've always enjoyed interesting walking simulators, the slow pace of the gameplay and the rather quickly striking monotony of the world you explore make it very difficult for me to even finish this short game. In addition, there are a lot of bugs that will force us to regularly reload the game. This is why I can only confidently recommend the game to fans of Lem's work, but I also recommend trying it a few months after release, when the developers fix all the problems with the game. It's possible that this type of game design was aimed not at gamers, but at teachers, so that they could eventually introduce this game as a supplement to the canon of school readings for kids. However, unlike This War of Mine, which can fulfill this function, here kids will be more likely to yawn with boredom and may even be happy to reach for the book itself.
