Отличная бродилка. Мы играем за лесного пожарного, нам предстоит очень интересное приключение, красивые пейзажи, душевные разговоры с напарницей - Делайлой, но все ли так хорошо? Нет. К сожалению, концовка игры была слита, а так игра очень хороша.

Positive points
1. Красивая графика.
2. Общение с напарницей.
Negative points
1. Слитая концовка.

First off, Pros: +Amazing voice overs +Cool soundtrack and sound design + Cartoony art style + atmospheric with their story Cons: - Anti-Climatic Ending - FPS Drops (I cant really talk about that [Laptop Skrub] but other people were having little issues) It was originally a 8.5-9 / 10 UNTIL I found these VERY useful in finding ...

Storyline

In Firewatch you play as a man named Henry who has retreated from his messy life to work as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. Perched high atop a mountain, it’s your job to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe. An especially hot, dry summer has everyone on edge. Your supervisor, a woman named Delilah, is available to you at all times over a small, handheld radio and is your only contact with the world you've left behind.

But when something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the world, you’ll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making interpersonal choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have.
