Resolution Magazine: "I found The Whispered World to be a fascinating, staggeringly beautiful experience. It could never be described as mediocre. At its best, it's as joyous as Machinarium and as poignant as The Longest Journey. But I simply cannot justify giving it a higher score. It's beauty incarnate, but there's a heavy price to pay for that beauty. It's so easy to fall for The Whispered World, and it's so easy to be hurt by the ones you love most."
