The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna is more of the same variety of puzzles to pleasingly tax your brain… taking you to the point of frustration before finally clicking how you need to place that connector gem to release the next android. I am very happy to have more of this wonderfully realised world and existence… the Matrix for Androids!

There are very few games this philosophically ambitious, and fewer that match that quality with equally intelligent game design. If you've not experienced it for yourself yet, go and play The Talos Principle. If you have, and you don't feel like your brain has been stretched as far as it can go, then Road to Gehenna is a worthy next step.

All in all, it probably took me 6-7 hours to get through Road to Gehenna, completing all of the normal puzzles and just enough of the stars to unlock one of the secret worlds. I have to imagine that for the intrepid completionist, there could easily be 15 hours of new content to enjoy. For a very reasonable price, this add-on represents the very best qualities of The Talos Principle, adding even more great stuff to one of the best puzzle games ever made.

While The Road to Gehenna may not be as expansive as its parent game, it provides exactly the kind of devious challenges its fans are wanting more of. The difficulty starts at the same level The Talos Principle had in the latter half of the game and doesn’t let up, although it doesn’t get much harder either. The challenge clocks in at “enjoyably hard” rather than expert, at least in the main story, but there are always more secrets to chase after. Road to Gehenna expands the story and provides more of what made its parent game so incredibly playable, providing a welcome return to a lovely but ruined virtual world of puzzle-based first-person action.

It's difficult to complain too much, though, when you're given more of the same kind of fantastically devious puzzle design found in The Talos Principle. You're going to be banging your head against a wall as you spend days trying to figure out how to get through that one room, finally feeling a tidal wave of elation and cleverness when you solve it. And you're going to enjoy getting to know the denizens of Gehenna as you ponder what of human nature is hidden in its art. It's a shame that these two excellent pieces never truly gel into something even more excellent, but even so, both still make for an enthralling, thoughtful experience together.

Road to Gehenna builds on the The Talos Principle, a philosophical first-person puzzler from Croteam. It takes the best elements of Portal, but removes the light-hearted humour and replaces it with deep levels of intense, existential dread, along with one of the most beautiful atmospheres I've experienced in gaming.
