The following is a spoiler-free review for Vane.
Sometimes a bad experience is still worth having.
Vane, a highly hyped indie release from developer Friend & Foe, hit gaming platforms last week only to be met with a resounding and less-than-complimentary “pass” from players. Although Vane delivered many of the stunning visuals promised in the 2016 demo that first gained the attention of gamers, its glitchy mechanics, frustrating design, and tedious gameplay made the experience for many (myself included) pretty awful.
So of course, I’m recommending you play it anyway. Hear me out.
