The Bridge isn't bad, but it purports to be more than it can offer. Its depth of meaning never manifests, and the true illusion of its M.C. Escher-inspired environments is that the perspective twists are largely superficial. The variety that it...

The Bridge has achievements too, but they're neatly tucked away in the menu and you won't care about them anyway. In this game, the satisfaction of progressing without outside help is the only thing you'll ever want. I hope you'll give it a try.

There's enough new - even outside of is sombre atmosphere and unique art style - to make The Bridge an entertaining puzzle game.

The Bridge ha raccolto svariati premi e applausi all’interno della comunità degli sviluppatori indipendenti ma è arrivato sul mercato in sordina, in silenzio e senza fare troppo chiasso.

DateMarch 19, 2013 - 3:46AM (0) Read later I'm trying something new on Tuesdays, a kind of indie follow-up to Jason Hill's traditional Monday review. So many excellent studio-made games have been coming out recently that I have amassed...

A hallmark of excellence. There may be flaws, but they are negligible and won't cause massive damage to what is a supreme title.

But at its best, it offers up a handful of unique puzzles that can appeal to both genre enthusiasts and newcomers. The main draw lies in the arresting visuals and mind-bending levels, but this short, and sometimes tantrum-inducing collection of puzzles is worth a recommendation for those who are looking to bridge the gap between thought and entertainment.

By GameSpot on 75

The core gameplay may be short, but The Bridge makes good use of that time by presenting a commendable variety of puzzles, and it's an easy recommendation for players seeking to span the bridge between fun and thought.

The Bridge manages to avoid crossing that fine line between challenging and frustrating, making you work to solve each puzzle without wanting to break your keyboard in the process. It’s an enjoyable experience that encourages you to think differently, and then rewards you for doing so.

By EuroGamer on 60

The Bridge ultimately feels like a truncated compilation of iconic motifs rather than a fully-fledged experience in its own right. If it were deeper, more substantial or just more confident in exploring its ideas, then The Bridge might have earned a place alongside the titles it idolises rather than following in their shadow.

A puzzle title with the same careful attention to subverting perception, and adherence to its own strange set of rules, as the Escher drawings it emulates.

By GameInformer on 75

While all of the puzzles don't reach the same level of excellence as The Bridge's impressive visuals, recommending this game to indie fans is still an easy call. Despite some difficulty spikes, patient players will be pleasantly engaged in The Bridge's surreal, black-and-white world.

By HardcoreGamer on 80

There really isn’t anything bad about the game, although the audio may not be to everyone’s liking, and the very nature of this being full of logic puzzles means it’s not going to be for everyone. If you’re prone to rage-quitting, this may not be the game for you, although perhaps its relaxed feel will put your mind at ease a bit and help you enjoy the experience.

Le ha faltado algo más de variedad en sus rompecabezas para codearse con los más grandes del género, pero qué duda cabe que estamos ante uno de esos títulos con los que cualquier apasionado de los puzles disfrutará de lo lindo.

By DigitalSpy on 60

The Bridge is also relatively short, but at the same time it doesn't outstay its welcome. It's for the most part enjoyable while it lasts, and provides a decent thought-provoking time.

By HookedGames on 79

The Bridge is a very good puzzle game. The pacing felt great, as the game throws new challenges at you just as you begin to understand the old ones. It is undeniably pretty to look at, and is accented by a simple but fitting soundtrack.

By Vandal on 90

The Bridge tiene prácticamente todo lo que se le puede pedir a un juego de puzles: es simple y fácil de jugar, desafía a nuestro ingenio constantemente, ofrece una experiencia fresca y original y su apartado visual atrapa desde el primer instante.
