We Happy Few is ambitious and stylish, but moment-to-moment gameplay is lackluster, tedious, and boring.

Gary Bailey (God is a Geek)

5/10

“Perhaps given another few months, We Happy Few could have been great, but as it is it’s simply a missed opportunity.”

4/10

“While We Happy Few’s story contains some genuinely wonderful twists and turns once it gets going, it’s dragged down by frustrating survival systems, shoddy combat, and an empty world.”

Chris Moyse (Destructoid)

5/10

“We Happy Few is unique. It features gorgeous environments, great music, twisted humor, and a magnetic story. It deserves praise for those aesthetics. But the game is what matters, and it is sadly lackluster in that regard, with bad combat, mundane stealth, and endless, frivolous mechanics. By choosing the fastidious “micro-management” path, We Happy Few distracts far too much from its true potential as a dystopian gaming classic. And that’s the biggest downer of all.”

Game Info

GAME INFO
Game Description / Storyline:

We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial. Set in a drug-fuelled, retrofuturistic city in an alternative 1960s England, you’ll have to blend in with its other inhabitants, who don’t take kindly to people who don’t abide by their not-so-normal rules.
