CheatCC says, "Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason is all about atmosphere. I am tempted to use the cliché, "The devil is in the details," simply because this game could be easily dismissed because of what may be perceived as a boring environment. This is not a travelogue. You're stuck on a frozen boat somewhere near the North Pole. As a Canadian, I can appreciate the feeling of loneliness, emptiness, and the helplessness that comes from suffering the unbearably brutal temperatures and winds unleashed by nature. It's ugly, but it has to be respected. Cryostasis does an admirable job of capturing those feelings of isolation and despair, and I would largely attribute that to the fact that the development team is Russian."
