GamingLives takes a look at The Vanishing of Ethan Carter:
"The Vanishing of Ethan Carter was an intriguing, emotional journey. While there were flaws and issues, these were largely with the dry, technical things, leaving the rest as a firm success. The lonely valley, and the boy you’re sent to find will haunt you long after you shutdown, and the story that we have been told lives far beyond the ending if you let it. And with these sort of games, that’s inevitable; for me, it’s one of the reasons that The Vanishing of Ethan Carter deserves its laurels."
