LIFELESS PLANET [M]
XBOX ONE / $19.99 / OUT NOW
An astronaut becomes stranded on the surface of a distant barren planet. While it packs a premise to provide a unique adventure built on exploration and survival, Lifeless Planet struggles to hold attention due to ropey controls, samey locales and too many invisible walls impeding the player’s curiosity. The puzzles are uninspired and the lack of action makes for a mostly monotonous experience.
