Liam Lambert, GIZORAMA - "I’d like to preface this review by stating that I had to play The Vanishing of Ethan Carter on low (although not “lowest”) PC settings. I’m not divulging this out of some sort of “GamerGate” honesty drive, nor because I feel that such information is necessarily relevant in order to gain your “trust” as a reviewer – I’d like to think I’m experienced enough at this point to know when a game has issues and when my PC has issues. No, I’m informing you of this because Ethan Carter is absolutely stunning to behold, even when played on my handicapped rig. So gorgeous is it, that it’s the sort of game reviewers love to review purely because it means we can take tons of juicy screenshots and fuss over which ones are postcard-perfect enough to include in our review. That’s not to say that The Astronauts’ slow burning supernatural thriller is all style and no substance, quite the opposite in fact."
