The Beginner's Guide reviews ( 7 )

Es difícil definir este juego, muchas personas quizás no lo consideren mas que una experiencia similar a una película, pero es uno de los juegos que más me ha invitado a jugarlo fuera de la pantalla, a pensar en él, en que esta pasando en su historia y que es lo que el autor me quiere decir. Recomendado para todos

Listen, I'm tired of the same old things in videogames: shooting, running, do this do that. To an extent, The Stanley Parable is a very experimental game that tries to tell a story through unconventional means. I said "to an extent", because The Beginner's Guide is so much more experiemental, new, unconventional, and just that much more brilliant. So if you want to try something, mature, and groundbreaking in video games, if you believe video games, aside from their animations and aesthetic, can be considered as Art, than this this may be for you. As for what the game really is: You play through a series of levels as a very emotional story unfolds. Those levels can, and often are, simply walking from one end of a room to another. However, the artistry is hard to ignore, and the excellent narration makes them even more thrilling. If you want a game to paralyze you in deep thought for hours after completion, this is for you.

So finally it's here. The next game from the Stanley Parable developer. I really loved Stanley Parable so I was very excited about this one. First of all I am a game developer by myself, so the idea of making a game about a game dev is cool to me. I personally think the story of the game is great and it's true that you don't have to do anything by yourself but to me that's no problem. The only problem of the game is: you have to like it. And this is not a game like any other game, so you can't say "I like game xy so I will like this one too". You just have to try it by yourself. No rating on this site will help you. I read some of the bad reviews they all say "save your money". But you shouldn't. Whether you like the game in the end or not in my opinion it's worth a try. And to all who say, people who like this game will say this game is misunderstood: no it isn't it's just not for you!

This was a very interesting narrative. It's about game design, personal desires, public recognition, pushing public figures and reinterpreting their creative works. Not really a game, even for a first person exploration game.

The Beginner's Guide isn't fun in the conventional sense, though the game never intends to be. It plays out more like a personal dairy of sorts, detailing the thought processes of Davey Wreden and his realisation of the error of his ways. There are many interpretations you can take, and it's up to you whether you believe the narrator is being honest or not. The writing did not come across as pretentious, but I think some of its ideas could be conveyed with a little more subtlety and perhaps less melodrama. Visuals were not impressive from a technical standpoint, though sound design was excellent. On the whole, I was satisfied with the overall product. At about 1.5 hours, it's a game that should be finished in a single sitting. Overall rating - 7.0/10

First of all, I have to say I absolutely LOVED The Stanley Parable. It had good humor, good level design, multiple path leading to interesting scenes and things for the player to find out. Now The Beginner's Guide is nothing of that. It's essentially about someone presenting you the "games" that his friend made. They aren't actually games, they are levels, well, part of levels,.. well a bunch of assets thew together and not being polished at all. That's the point of the game, saying that his friend have social anxiety and depression and that it reflected on his work making ugly inconsistent levels. Thing is, it never lead anywhere other than that, it does not try to convey a message or something. You just slowly advance through bad levels until you reach the end and the credit starts. It's absolutely boring and pointless.

This is not a video game. It is, as it is frequently called, a walking simulator. There is no actual gameplay here – it is just a story, mostly told via voice-over, accompanied by (often not very good) graphics as you walk through it. And unfortunately, it isn’t a very well-written or interesting story. It is just a thing which happened between two people. It commits the cardinal sin of being boring, and at an hour and a half long, it is nowhere near as interesting or consequential as a movie of the same length would be. There’s nothing of value here. It is nothing like The Stanley Parable. It is just an empty, boring experience which will steal your time and never give it back.
