The Talos Principle | Mini Review

What is it?

The Talos Principle is a first-person puzzle game developed by Croteam and published by Devolver Digital. As a robot, the player must solve well over a hundred puzzles in order to earn ‘sigils’, which can be used to progress further. The game touches on religion, God, artificial intelligence, and much more.

Platform(s)

PC, PS4

Pros
Cons
Fiendishly challenging puzzles involving light reflectors, fans, gun turrets and more.
Well-hidden secret areas hosting bonus goodies.
Bite-sized sigil puzzles aplenty.
Ambient soundtrack.
Serious Sam DLC adds new dialogue for the omniscient voice of Elohim.
Pretentious writing about religion and technology.
Areas outside of puzzle zones can be unnecessarily spacious.

Verdict:

Its artsy, philosophical themes may not be for everyone, but this is still a fantastic puzzle game that’ll bend your mind into funny shapes with its challenging tasks.
