Windbound is gorgeous, but it's neither a compelling survival simulation nor a captivating story-based experience, and the barriers that Windbound puts up makes it a tough game to enjoy.

Jordan Devore (Destructoid)

6/10

“From a distance, Windbound is a gorgeous oceanic adventure with a fun sailing system that isn’t afraid to push back, but up close, the cracks start to show. The game makes a great first impression that ultimately wears thin by the time you’ve mastered its repetitive resource-gathering roguelike loop.”

6/10

“Unfortunately, if you’re looking for a great survival roguelike to put your time into, then you’re probably better off setting sail in more abundant seas.”

7/10

“The more I played the less the goings-on of the narrative bothered me, and the more I relished the wavelike rhythm of the action: the roll and crash of sailing and breaking to alight for supplies.”
