Released back in January 2016; The Witness has taken the whole world by its charm within a couple of months’ time. The complex puzzles and teasing secrets will keep you busy with this game for hours.
Starting with the game, you will like the gameplay. The way different puzzles are made up with no or very little help will definitely create an urge to do better in the action.
One thing we found quite weird in this new PlayStation game is that it does not offer any help or tutorials. It demands you to explore the content on your own, unlike many other similar games. When you start it, it will directly take you to the map world instead of taking you through a step by step guide and explaining how this one works. Having said that, every map of the Island offers relatively easy and simple starting puzzles which give you some idea and explains how everything will work. So, all you have to do is follow a hit and trial rule while playing the early simple puzzles in the game. Completing and learning from these puzzles will help you to move ahead in the game. And whatever you learnt while solving these pieces of puzzles will come in handy when complex puzzles come up at the later stage.
Honestly speaking, I played it before doing the review. At times I found myself stuck at complex levels with no clues at all. So, what I used to do was go back to starting levels and have a look at how different pieces combines to complete puzzle and it helped me cross the levels. So, what it requires from you is proper attention at the starting level which will definitely help you in mastering the game!
One interesting thing about this game is that it makes you believe that puzzle is definitely a challenge and will take a genius mind to complete it. But from my experience I can tell you that it is not as hard as you think. All you have to do is focus a little bit on the solving it and you will realize that it is in fact a simple one but with a tricky solution.
It is definitely one of the best games I have lately reviewed. The best thing about The Witness is that it makes sure you use your brain. So, all you need is focus and patience.
