Interesting post-apocalyptic world
Cat moves very realistically
Controls not always as responsive as they could be
Stealth sections can be a lot of trial and error
Some minor technical issues
In all, Stray is a unique action adventure title with an adorable protagonist trying to get home through a robot populated world. The world is interesting to explore, and the robots have distinct personalities making them characters worth meeting and interacting with. The dangers posed by the bug-like Zurks and the robot Sentinels can lead to some very tense moments. While the controls mainly work well, on occasion they’re not always as responsive as you might like (in particular, the jump button), leading to some trial and error in more stealthy sections. Despite that, this is a game well worth playing, and a must for cat lovers.
