The Mooseman PS4 Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on the PS4 version of The Mooseman by Vladimir Beletsky and Sometimes You.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the game on Keymailer for review/video purposes. Like all of my reviews, this had no effect on my thoughts and experiences with the game.
The Mooseman is a side-scrolling adventure game that’s based on a Permian creation myth. The myth follows someone named The Mooseman on his journey across multiple worlds in order to ultimately revive the world. The Mooseman’s journey is a perilous one fraught with many dangers, which include various divine beasts that try and stop them from completing their journey.
The story is very interesting and it’s one myth that I wasn’t familiar with. I learned quite a bit about the myth by playing this game though. The story is also told in the native Permian language which is a nice touch and adds to the authenticity of the story.
Gameplay wise, the game mostly revolves around solving various puzzles along The Mooseman’s journey. Puzzles are varied but they’re pretty simple to figure out so most shouldn’t have any problem with them.
Two areas that I was most impressed with in this game was the art/graphics and it’s atmosphere. The graphics and worlds you travel through are gorgeous. I love that the developers used the Perm animal style for it’s art and it helped make the story stand out. The atmosphere in this game was quite superb as well. I used a headset to play through the game and all the different sound effects in the background was great. I also loved the music which was amazing throughout.
Overall, The Mooseman was a very enjoyable journey. I found the myth/story to be very interesting and it was great hearing it in it’s native language. The game is on the short side but I wouldn’t let that deter you from giving it a shot. It’s a beautiful game that definitely deserves a playthrough.
Thanks for taking the time to read this short review folks! I’ll be back with my next review soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
