Close to the Sun puts you in the boots of Rose Archer, a reporter exploring the quarantined depths of the Helios research ship to find her sister. The Helios is the creation of Tesla as a haven for the greatest scientific minds, but right from the start it is clear that something went terribly wrong. Close to the Sun is inevitably going to draw some comparisons to the Bioshock titles, but it is more of a walking simulator that has a few puzzles and chase sequences sprinkled in for good measure. It’s not a bad game, but does feature a few annoying bits and never reaches the heights it could have.
Gameplay: Slowly walk through beautiful surroundings while solving puzzles and running away from the occasional foe.
Graphics: The levels look great, but the character models and animations let things down slightly.
Sound: Decent music and the voice acting isn’t too bad either
