To me formatting looks ok, can you please specify what looks broken to you?
Tome[CT]  [developer] Dec 11, 2014 @ 1:01pm 
Hmm, looks broken to me if I come here from other link, but if I refresh everything comes back to order. Strange.
Sharkey Dec 11, 2014 @ 4:29pm 
Yeah, I just saw the bad formatting but there's no refresh button within the Steam app itself (not the web version). Tried pressing F5 on a hunch and now it looks perfect.

Downloading the game now, big fan of Croteam, can't wait to play this! Already read the RPS review - I trust them the most. (The pullout quote you used might be improved with the inclusion of "It tickled my brainbuds and got inside my head...")

rockhead Dec 17, 2014 @ 6:33pm

Ma3a Dec 18, 2014 @ 2:25am 85% The last hit of the year 2014. For those who like thinking, alcerating with philosophical questions or just looking to solve clever puzzles The Talos Principle is a must buy.,51245,3081417.html 88% Great philosphy, clever puzzles. Looking for challenging puzzles like portal and an interessting story who focuses on beiing human? than The Talos Principle is the insider tip at the end of the year!

I think this will be good for Croteam. I often thought Serious Sam doesn't get enough attention, and this will draw attention to them as a developer.

Most of the reviews are on spot, I summarized my thoughts in my own mini-review on Steam page for Talos.
