Try The Witness said a few people on Twitter, and like an idiot, I listened. Here I am now giving this interesting puzzler a look for a review, with my brain just about functional to type some words on it, after it taking a battering playing it. The Witness will make the smart feel dumb while making the dumb (enter me here) wonder if life is worth living anymore. I live a very simple life, so the only sort of thing I can say reminded me of my playing The Witness was that feeling you get after you untie a tricky knot in a shoelace. No one will care that you just worked out this simple yet complex puzzle all by yourself, but inside you will feel that warm buzz of satisfaction for a few seconds as you do.
Away from the game, I of course have to touch upon the price of the game too, with the game seeing a pretty high price of £31.99 if you want to give it a look. For me this high price for a gorgeous yet simple game will stop many from picking up The Witness as a "why not" purchase, as high price means more of a gamble. I'm not going to do what I would normally do with prices like these for games such as this, but I'm sure we all know what type of games £31.99 could buy us at this current time. That's not saying The Witness isn't worth the money, as I would expect if you're going to tackle this without help (via YouTube) then you're looking at a game that will last you a bloody long time.
Overall: The Witness is not going to be a game that everyone will fall in love with. Add in the £31.99 asking price for the game and many will give it a miss with much bigger names coming out is this packed release window we are in right now. If you class yourself as a know-it-all though, The Witness will offer you a good challenge and sense of achievement if you manage to beat it. For those of us who are dumb as a box of bricks, then buying this just to watch YouTube tip videos would be a waste of time and money.
