Admittedly, games that take this path are going to be polarizing for the audience. They’re far from the AAA FPS audience, and this alienates casual players due to the fact that they have to play it all at once, which can be a bit taxing depending on your current state of mind. But if you’re looking for something out of the ordinary and has a message to tell, this one is worth checking out. The ending is a bit predictable, but no less powerful because of it.

Unsatisfying ending aside, North is an interesting, insightful game that's worth a look. It doesn't ask a lot of your time (or wallet), and when it's firing on all cylinders, it has something genuinely important to say.

North is an interesting game with something special to offer despite its flaws. It presents the story of a refugee seeking asylum in a way that is open to interpretation according to the player's values and life experience. At its best it does a great job of creating a sense of unease, loneliness and confusion, immersing the player in a painful scenario that is all too easy to relate to real life. At its worst it undermines immersion with poor optimisation and a disjointed relationship between the flow of gameplay and information. As a gaming experience it will be most satisfying to those who enjoy thought-provoking titles or exploring dark worlds. However, it will also appeal to achievement hunters looking to gain an easy 1,000 Gamerscore in less than an hour.

North is a brave entry into the Walking Simulator pantheon. Though not for everyone, it can be quite interesting to see how deep this rabbit hole goes.

While I give North credit for trying to tackle relevant social issues in a somewhat experimental gameplay style, I can’t ignore its technical simplicity, short duration and lack of replayability. It might be an honest attempt at bringing artistic gaming to the masses, but I feel like its publisher is selling it just like the previous games it released: as a quick, cheap and easy way to get 1000 points or a platinum trophy. North is alright, but it could have been a lot better, and a lot less cryptic.
