To the Moon (PC) review
"Its retro graphics look beautiful. The original soundtrack is utterly stunning. Its story is one of the most confident and grown-up that our medium has ever seen. Donít approach To the Moon expecting taxing puzzles or combat or stats, because that isnít what itís about. It is its own thing: an indie adventure about going to the moon, but with its sights set far beyond it."
Johnny never really knew why he wanted to visit the moon; itís just something he felt he wished to do. Now, heís elderly and terminally ill, comatose and unable to fulfil his dream. But in this near-future world exists a technology that allows doctors to change a personís life as they perceive it, by delving into their memories and rearranging them, so that they may die believing they lived the life they desired.
To the Moon is a love story of sorts. Itís also a story of guilt, regret, friendship, grief and misunderstandings. And itís not really much of a game, its only significant problems arising when it tries too hard to be one.
