[PlayStation 4] Far From Noise Review
Far From Noise by George Batchelor is a very relaxing game in which you having one long conversation as you sit in a car that is hanging on a cliff barely managing to no plummet to your death. Intrigued? Learn more about this one in our Far From Noise review!
You’re quietly sitting in your car, minding your own business, hanging from a cliff… you know, the usual. Who hasn’t been through this? As you contemplate the setting sun on the horizon, you will get a chance to reflect on life… or what’s left of it! There seems to be no way out, and since you don’t want to fall down to your death just yet, you’ll end up spending some quality time with yourself and the world around you.
You will get to select from the available dialogue choices and actions as you play, discovering more about yourself as you talk to some very interesting companions that will come and go as you see the day fade into night, realizing that your fate is still your own, even if it doesn’t seem like it. This is a very relaxing type of game which I really can’t talk much about since it would ruin the experience for you, since this is exactly what Far From Noise is: an experience you should definitely take on your PlayStation 4.
The overall setting won’t change since you are, as I’ve mentioned before, hanging from a cliff, but the game’s minimalist art style, as well as the changes in lighting as the day goes on, do a great job of making you focus on the game’s interactions and the dialogue options available to you. There are some funny messages in there along with more serious options that take into consideration your current predicament, so you’ll find a good mix of the doom and gloom with some very introspective moments.
The game has a short list with only nine trophies, which means that this one does not have a Platinum trophy… but it does have one Gold, five Silver and three Bronze for your collection! I won’t mention what makes each of the trophies unlock… except for one, since I’m sure that won’t change how you take on the game. When you’re prompted to turn on the car’s radio be sure to do so, and then select to change the station over and over until you get a trophy for listening to all available stations. As for the rest of the trophies, you’ll need to play the game for yourself.
Far From Noise is a very relaxing and interesting game on PlayStation 4 that I highly recommend you play. It’s definitely not for everyone since the game is pretty much a visual novel without what some would call “proper gaming,” but hopefully this won’t keep you from experiencing a great indie game on Sony’s console.
