Unique and visually striking, Abzu doesn’t quite make the most of its underwater setting but remains a highly compelling adventure.

There are few games quite as curious and beautiful as Abzû, and fewer of its kind on the PC. It’s a short, dense journey filled with intense wonder and inherent beauty, and every inch is worth seeing.

Absolutely gorgeous and a joy to behold, but sticks too close to Journey’s formula for its own good.
