Vessel Review

 

If concept and presentation were the only factors taken into account, Vessel would likely take its place alongside some of the great indie efforts of recent years.

There aren’t gobs of money behind Vessel. It's independent, and the journey isn't always smooth. But cookie-cutter it is not, nor is it garish or sexist or silly or mindless. If you are a patient person who appreciates grey matter workouts and "Eureka"...

Vessel is a puzzle platformer, a sort of adventure game, and is just looks cool. The gameplay is solid and the atmosphere equally so. This is a game that is made by people who really care about the medium. No, it's not an artistic statement, but it...

Great atmosphere ; Solid gameplay ; Great length of game for the price

Platforming controls are imprecise

For the price, Vessel is worth purchasing. The platforming controls could be better, but it’s still a great game.

It seems a precarious juxtaposition that in 2012, a gamer can be overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of quality 2D platformers. The genre has garnered momentum for many years as a result of the comparative ease of digital distribution, but tighter...

It’s difficult to criticize Vessel further because as a puzzler, its primary aim is to create challenging and exciting problems to solve. In this respect, it’s a unanimous success. Clocking in at between eight and ten hours, it’s also a fine DRM-free...

Vessel is a physics-based puzzle game with a concentration on fluids, and is best characterized as interesting, charming, and frustrating. You play

What could be more effective then a automaton made of liquid? Not much! Check out Gamertell's review of Vessel...

Stunning visuals and great peaceful music, nicely flowing gameplay and unique puzzles and the Fluros are downright adorable

Game begins slowly and you don’t get the backpack until almost two hours into the game. Puzzles are sometimes too easy and the game’s plot is a bit hard to follow

Puzzle platformers are a bit of a staple of independent games. Since Braid saw critical and commercial success in 2008, the genre has almost become saturated, and while each game may explore its own new ideas in various ways, it has become increasingly...

With roughly ten hours of gameplay and little to no filler content, Vessel is a great value. Its main selling point, fluid physics-based mechanics, is also the source of its minor failings. For those not too fatigued with puzzle platformers, it is a...

It's like an aquatic amusement park... in your PC.

Beautiful, charming, challenging, original and budget priced

Some puzzles can be frustrating; AI occasionally stumbles

Good thing this trench coat is water proof. The liquid physics in this game look astounding. I'm tempted to pay the asking price merely to jump up and down in fountains and rain puddles. Are you?

One of the most intriguing games we've seen in ages

Vessel is a true testament to how far indie games have come. Featuring flawless presentation, and truly unique gameplay, Vessel creates a mesmerising experience that is truly challenging. While casual gamers may find the complex puzzles and 10-15 hours...

I like Vessel, but sometimes frustration sat side by side with amusement. The liquid physics on display are impressive, but when they get in the way of otherwise enjoyable gameplay, I'd prefer simplicity over a strict physics simulation. Nonetheless,...

Vessel- PC

 

A well designed, cleverly paced and attractive platform game with a handful of quirky features. A worthwhile package for the money, but without the innovation we hoped for.
