    Firewatch is full of excellent dialogue, breathtaking moments, and stunning vistas, but ultimately amounts to nothing much at all.

    • Realistic dialogue, from small-talk to serious crises
    • Beautiful travel poster aesthetic

    Cons

    • Central mystery falls apart under scrutiny
    • World feels empty
