There's not puzzles, but a story. The voice acting it's fantastic, but's needed a subbing, of course. Not all the peolple can understand the spoken english.
Some glitches, as the invisible table, but the game is very good. Good scares, but not invasive or frustrating.
8/10: very good!

NON SPOILER REVIEW: With over 2.5 hours of content The Search is one of my favorite SOMA mods: amazing outdoor environments, voice acting and story but do expect the odd frustrating 'kind the keycard' puzzles. A must play for fans of stories in mods.

I can say that so far this is one of my personal favorite SOMA mods. The mod can be drop-dead gorgeous at times with one scene in particular making my jaw drop in pure awe. It isn't photo-realistic (some of the textures are blurry and areas can be sparsely populated) but like a surrealist painting you can appreciate it for what it is. My biggest complaint for this mod in terms of graphics is the overly simplistic lighting that could bring the mod up to the graphical heights of the scene.

The gameplay is a bit cliche however: while the physics puzzles were nice to figure out there is a lot of 'find the keycard' and 'find the set of keys' puzzles in here making for a mildly frustrating experience. One puzzle in particular I really disliked was the security robot one, it was so difficult to figure out that I had to brute force my way out of it.

The story is really interesting with sides to be taken and side-plots to discover. The search for Benjamin brings you to the city streets, factories, kindergardens and the sides of skyscrapers. This mod has the most varied and intriguing plot in the scene right now.

VA is by far the best in the modding scene. Characters, for the most part, are played naturally by their actors with high quality recordings to add better immersion. Really great to hear better voices in mods.

Overall a must play, without a doubt. With over 2.5 hours of content this mod is packed with story, environmental design and a bit of good gameplay. If you don't enjoy the gameplay, there is always the story to get engrossed in.
