Call of the Sea might have an overly familiar premise and some less-than-stellar puzzles, but it's a gorgeous, enjoyable game boosted by strong production values and involved world design. TheXboxHub:80
Who said that single player games were dead? Call of the Sea on Xbox was made for Game Pass: a fantastic story stunningly told, full of well-pitched puzzles, with almost zero replayability. It’s one of 2020’s most surprising genre-reboots, taking Myst and transplanting in a heart, and we’re all for it. You’d do well to buy a ticket to its shores. IGN Spain:75
Puzzles with a great design (mostly) and a story that captures without remedy from the first minute. A must for lovers of narrative adventures and puzzles. IGN Italia:70
Call Of The Sea is a good debut, that uses puzzle and riddle-based gameplay to tell an atmospheric story. Its weakness lies in a conception of riddles that is not always very clear, source of some moments of frustration, and in a limited duration. It will probably not remain among the most notable examples of the genre, but we must give credit to the fact that it manages to offer an alternative vision of the Lovecraftian narrative universe, potentially capable of satisfying those who do not always want monsters or scares.

Call of the Sea is a great starter for Out of the Blue. The game brings together the best of the puzzle classics of the 90s and combines it with the macabre monster stories of H.P. Lovecraft with a certain cinematic touch. A very successful Xbox debut. Of course, if you don't like puzzles, this is not your game. Jeuxvideo.com:65
When finished, Call of the Sea leaves a salty, unfinished aftertaste.
مایکروسافت هر چند تو لانچ بازی ها سریزایکس عملکرد قابل قبولی از خودش نشون نداد ولی در کل امسال بهترین سال مایکروسافت و ایکس باکس تو این چند سال اخیر از لحاظ ارائه کیفیت بازی ها بود مخصوصا بازی ها AA.
این بازی هم از اون دسته بازی ها بود که توجه من تو نمایش ماه may به خودش جلب کرد یک بازی اتمسفریک و ادونچر محور با تمهنری یونیک و روایت عالی که حتما باید تجربه کنم.
امتیازات بازی هم با توجه به سبک و سیاق بازی خیلی خوبه.
Call of the Sea is a gripping, interesting, and creative take on the Lovecraftian formula. It moves away from the oft-trodden horror roots and creates an imaginative and immersive puzzle adventure with none of the lingering racism you might expect. God is a Geek:75
Out of the Blue's debut game manages to pack in some complex puzzles set amongst some beautiful environments, and has a story that keeps you hooked throughout. Hardcore Gamer:70
Call of the Sea could benefit from having more substance, but otherwise it’s a solid adventure game that manages to put a unique spin on the traditional Lovecraftian adventure. Norah’s journey is a memorable one, thinks to some terrific dialogue and a breathtaking, surreal island full of fantastical mystery. It may not be the most challenging graphic adventure game, but it’s still one that players might want to take a look at sometime. After all, after so many sheer descents into madness, why not set out to find a welcome change of pace? GamingBolt:60
Call of the Sea’s intriguing piecemeal story and beautiful setting falls to the wayside when its lack of signposting and overall artificially obtuse puzzles take center stage for much longer than acceptable.

When I finished Call of the Sea, I couldn’t help but smile. It was such an incredible journey with an intriguing story and a well-thought-out ending. From start to finish, with the exception of a couple of frustrating puzzles, I truly enjoyed this game. Considering it’s is launching on Xbox Game Pass, there is absolutely no reason for Xbox Series X/S or Xbox One gamers to not give this gem a try. The sheer amount of love and care that went into crafting this world should be the new standard that all devs strive to achieve. I can’t wait to see what Out of the Blue have in store for us next, and I truly hope we’ll return to the world of Call of the Sea in a future title. Guardian:80
Like any good puzzle game, there is special satisfaction in working out a solution to a conundrum that has stumped you, and that’s the best reward in the game. Call of the Sea ramps up the story towards the end, but I cared far more about the clues than Norah and Harry’s tale. It frustrates as the best puzzles often do, but no solutions feel unearned or gimmicky. This is definitely one for the pencil-chewers to check out. Destructoid:75
If the writers weren't so eager to spoil their own surprises, I think we'd be looking at one outstanding narrative-driven adventure here. As it is, Call of the Sea is a pleasing piece of pulp fiction and a decent test of your puzzle-solving skills.
Releasing early in the new gaming generation, Call of the Sea sets the benchmark for story-driven adventure puzzle games moving forward. It’s an experience full of surprises, from its lush game world that takes advantage of next-gen graphic capabilities, to its emotionally impactful story that puts a fresh spin on the Cthulhu Mythos. It’s also surprisingly challenging; so much so at times that the frustration over its obtuse puzzles damages your sense of immersion, and goodwill towards the game. Hobby Consolas:80
With a style reminiscent of the great classics, it left a great taste in my mouth.

What a surprise Call of the Sea was! Out of the Blue’s debut title shows off its own well-defined personality through a very accurate artistic direction and attention to details. All puzzles have their own logic and the idea of proposing them in blocks, separating the adventure into sealed chapters, helps to focus attention on a limited number of elements. With its crazy atmosphere and an eight-hours duration, which prevents any kind of fatigue, Call of the Sea is a highly recommended game for adventure’s (and Lovecraft’s) lovers. Ragequit.gr:80
Call of the Sea is an immersive puzzle / adventure that came almost out of nowhere. Its satisfying puzzles and well-written, sometimes moving, story compose a more than decent game that will shake your brain cells for about six to seven hours. Everyeye.it:72
Call of the Sea is an interesting but flawed experiment, denoting some (legitimate) error of inexperience. In general, the feeling is that of an adventure written in a pleasant and moderately enjoyable way to play, without ever reaching that status of a little gem to be discovered that in the past months had accompanied the arrival of the debut title. of Out of the Blue from Madrid. A non-trivial story that leaves good feelings for the future of the Spanish studio, to be enjoyed without too many pretensions towards a rather inspired ending. JeuxActu:70
Call of the Sea isn't as groundbreaking as what the sales pitch would make you think. It's a very classic puzzle game which doesn't stand out from the rest. Thankfully, le visuals are great, the narrative is a good surprise as it has multiple endings.

It is a delightful indie game. They have known how to choose each tool to create an adventure of exploration, mystery and with a variety of puzzles that will undoubtedly leave you hooked. CGMagazine :85
Call of the Sea is a well-executed Adventure game that feels both familiar and distinct, with imagery evocative of both Monkey Island and H.P. Lovecraft that comes together in a fun and concise adventure game.
