Positive points

-Writing and acting
-Pleasant feeling that comes with just taking a nice walk through nature on a nice day.

-Lack of wildlife

Firewatch is a regular story beautifully put in scene. Unfortunately it is quite simple and shallow and lacks some consistency and fulfillment.You don't ponder on the experience you had but rather wonder what would you have done to make it better. While it is a enjoyable experience it is also forgettable, I wouldn't particularly recommend it.

Positive points
+++ strong voice acting
+ decent visuals and atmosphere
Negative points
- linear and forgettable story
-- lots of dialogue choices with little to no impact on story development
-- very short

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.
